DJ Paul was amazing. He really took charge and helped us with a lot of things, not just music and photo booth issues. He was very professional and communicated with us well. We love having him at our wedding!
From day one Paul was supportive throughout the process. He did multiple check ins around your schedule and helped the ease the stress in any way he could. He has resources available if you need them, such as a place to rent a dance floor from, or possible photographers you can hire. Come the day of the wedding he did not disappoint. Weeks later, our families are still talking about the music from the reception and how much fun they had dancing. From the time the dancing started until the end of the night our dance floor was booming the whole time.
Thanks for the fantastic review Kaitlin! Hope to see you guys at your friends weddings in the future!!
If I could give more stars I would! I attended a wedding where Paul was the DJ 3 years ago, he was nothing short or awesome! Everything you would want a DJ to be, from mixing music to being the MC on dances to teach people so they do not feel left out. When we were searching for DJ's I asked my Fiance(Wife) to meet Paul, he was so professional and courteous towards her that I knew he would do anything to make sure it was the day she dreamed of.
I knew about Paul's music ability, but what really makes him worth every penny is his organizational skills. His website is easy to use for music choices and organizing, and he his very accommodating to what you want. He delivered on all the hype I promised and then some, even to the point where he said he was ahead of schedule (for this time sensitive OCD person) he made me feel relaxed. The dance floor was never empty, and the only thing I would change is to hire him for longer.
Most importantly he is a genuine person who cares about your special day. I feel that he wants to make sure its perfect and that is what drives him. If you give him the chance, you will not be disappointed.
P.S. If you hire Paul, please invite my wife and myself, we know it will be an awesome party!
Thanks so much Gary! Glad we could deliver on (and exceed) any and all expectations that you had! Looking forward to seeing you at future weddings!!
If you’re looking for a wedding or event DJ in Chicago or the suburbs, stop your search with Paul Michaels Events. Paul was our wedding DJ in June 2017 and we are beyond thrilled with everything he did to make our day the most memorable, fun and easy.
Here are 5 reasons why we loved working with Paul, and why you should hire him for your wedding or event!
1. From the moment we first spoke, Paul was professional, organized and communicated with us throughout our engagement. We always felt like we were an important client and that he understood what kind of music and vibe we wanted at our wedding.
2. He kept our dance floor packed! We had access to our playlist (Must Play, Maybe Play and Do Not Play), which was helpful as we planned our event. He made suggestions, and the result was the best dance party we could have hoped for!
3. As someone who has planned several events, I felt confident in my ability to keep everything organized and managed, but I couldn’t have done it that day without Paul. He went above and beyond to communicate with my other vendors in advance, managed the evening’s timeline, and kept in close communication with my groom and I throughout the night.
4. He took photos of us on the dance floor! In addition to all the wonderful photos and video I have from my other professional vendors, Paul snapped several shots of the dance floor and the very end of the night. We otherwise wouldn’t have had these memories, so this was a wonderful surprise!
5. He has a wide offering of services. We only used him for DJ services, but you can book Paul and his team for up-lighting, fog effects, photo booths and more. He has a ton of experience as well as connections in the industry (thanks for the last-minute transportation reco!).
Paul rocks, book him today!
Thank you so much for the very in depth review! Loved working with both of you, and I'm sure I'll be seeing you at more weddings in the future!!
Highly recommend DJ Paul Michaels! He has been the DJ for two of my family members prior to our wedding and did a fabulous job! As soon as we got engaged, we already knew we needed him to be our DJ. We had a very intercultural wedding (Mexican and Lithuanian) which needed a combination of Spanish, Lithuanian, and English music. DJ Paul Michaels did an awesome job by incorporating all of the music. Our guests really enjoyed themselves, we got multiple compliments, and our dance floor was always filled!!
Thanks Erica for the awesome review. You guys were great, and I always love a good challenge when it comes to music. :-)
Hopefully I'll be seeing you at your little sister's wedding (if I remember right)!
I recently worked with DJ Paul Michaels for my wedding in March and his service was phenomenal! DJ Paul Michaels was absolutely fantastic to work with!!! He is very detail oriented and wants to ensure your wedding day goes perfectly! His level of quality standards is benchmark in the industry and the proof will be the amount of people on the dance floor. He is also very accommodating to your wedding needs and goes through every step of the planning process.
For those of you who are having Indian weddings, have no fear! My wedding ceremony/reception was Indian and it was executed flawlessly!
DJ Paul Michaels is a DJ that I still don't believe is real. He is surely a mythical beast that has ventured into our reality with the sole purpose of being an amazing DJ. Couldn't ask for a more professional, timely, flexible purveyor of fine music. Beware of booking him for weddings though, because he's a handsome devil and might steal your girl. ;)
Ha thanks Levy for the review. It truly means a lot to know that you loved everything I was able to do for you guys! Looking forward to seeing you at some friends' weddings in the future. I know a few of your friends were asking me about 2017 availability the night of your wedding. :-)
DJ Paul worked our wedding on October 14th, 2016. His professionalism and organization are unparalleled. He met with us multiple times to ensure that every finite detail was intimately planned. Additionally, he met with the venue to ensure that his set up, tear down, and event execution would be flawless.
His diligence and professionalism truly put us at ease. We had full confidence in him.
Paul had his finger on the pulse of the crowd the entire event. Despite the fact the crowd had eclectic tastes in music, Paul made sure the dance floor was filled to capacity. He really knew how to work the crowd. I personally appreciated how he staggered the speeches with the dinner courses so there wouldn’t be any speech-fatigue. Paul’s timing was on-point.
He helped make our day truly special, and we are forever thankful. To say that we strongly recommend Paul would be an understatement of epic proportions. If you’re going to choose a DJ for your wedding, your search begins and ends with DJ Paul. His professionalism, quality, diligence, responsiveness and flexibility are unrivaled.

Worth every penny! Very detail oriented and contacts other vendors to make sure everything is set up so the bride and groom are stress-free on the wedding day. Very knowledgable with a variety of songs and kept all the guests dancing throughout the night! Our name in lights was phenomenal, a great add-on for sure. It was a pleasure doing business with Paul and his assistant Justin. If we ever need a DJ in the future, there is no doubt that we would contact Paul again!
Thanks so much for the glowing review Jessica! Great to get to know both you and David and I look forward to seeing you both in the future at your friends' weddings!
Paul goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding is special. All the guests were impressed that he considered their song suggestions and not just the couples (which he would approve with the us if it seemed a little strange) He taught popular dances (The Wobble) to an overflowing dance floor. Book him! You won't regret it!
Thank you so much for the great review Katrina! Had a blast celebrating with you and your family/friends! Can't wait to see you at a friend's wedding in the future!
Paul was fantastic in every way. He is highly organized and easy to work with leading up to the wedding. He met with us and helped us create exactly what we wanted. Paul assisted us with up lighting, a video slideshow, music and much more. Paul's easy to use web based portal page enables you to add any songs to your playlist at any point leading up to your big day as well as any songs you dont want. It also allows you to plan out your day and enables you to tell the DJ exactly what you want announced etc. You will not be disappointed if you book Paul. Very enthusiastic and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him.
Booking Paul for our wedding was a no-brainer! He is very personable and easy to get ahold of with all your wedding questions! I was a picky bride about the music and worried about my 80 and 90 year old family members having a good time as well as our 20 and 30 year old friends- Paul had the whole wedding dancing all night! Book him, you won't regret it!
Thanks Adrienne! Being a picky bride just means you know what you want, nothing wrong with that! It was great working with you to pull off an amazing wedding!
Paul was a great partner for our wedding. I say partner because he went above and beyond the normal DJ responsibilities while helping us plan our event! His advice and wedding expertise really helped us plan an incredible guest experience, which was very important to us! His software is easy to use, but sophisticated, and Paul was easy to schedule meetings with either in person or on Google Hangouts. Paul also offers fair pricing and a lot of fun extras. We had him provide our uplighting, which totally transformed the event space during dancing and helped make it a great party! Our guests never left the dance floor once it opened and it was hard to get everyone to leave at the end of the night; it just shows how much fun everyone had during the reception! Anyone looking for a DJ in the Chicagoland area should look no further!
Thanks for the great review Leah! I'm glad we were able to deliver everything exactly as you dreamed and helped truly bring together your dream wedding! Looking forward to seeing you at your friends' weddings in the future!
DJ Paul is awesome! He's great to work with, has lots of options, very accommodating to meet us anywhere, very organized, knew our venue so he could help us plan, and has an amazing website that lets you sample music to help you decide what to use. His website can also be used to put together a timeline for the big day. Everything was perfect at our reception and our friends are still talking about how great the music was and how much fun they had! I've been to many weddings and Paul helped this become the best one I've been to. And I'm not just saying that because it was mine!
Thank you Doug for the review! You guys were great and I'm so glad I could deliver exactly what you were dreaming of! -Paul
Paul was great to work with!!! He was very accommodating for my busy schedule, and always made me feel like my day was as important to him as it was to me!!! Jimmy did an amazing job on the day of, and we have gotten a ton of complements on how fun our reception was. Thanks to DJ Paul Michaels for a job well done!
Thanks for the great review Allison! Jimmy and I both had a great time working with yourself and Michael! Looking forward to seeing you at your friends' weddings in the future!
We we're referred to Paul through a friend, and loved his style. Awesome selection, and great quality speakers! We were sold before booking. Our reception went off without a hitch, couldn't have been more happy with the professionalism. I received a thank you email from our photographer who said that Paul was one of the best DJs he has worked with in a while because he let them know about when we would cut our cake and do our first dance, etc. I didn't even think about that! Glad we went with Paul!
Thanks you so much for the great review! Glad your photographer enjoyed working with us as well! Since this came through as a private user, can you send me an email or text to let me know who you are? Thanks so much!
Paul did an amazing job at my son's wedding. Everybody complimented the reception and music after all was said and done. I would completely recommend Paul and his services to anyone who is looking for a professional "fun" DJ. We can't say thank you enough !!!
We heard of DJ Paul through a friend of his that he went to school with. At the first meeting I could tell he was very thorough and took his job seriously. Every detail was needed and his goal was to help make our wedding perfect. His online system worked out really well, gave lots of suggestions for when we got hung up on finding a song, and made it easy to work on over time at home at our pace rather then try and hash it all out at once in one meeting. What I really liked was that he was all about the bride, whatever she wanted was what she would get, not that he ignored the groom or everyone else, but knows the wedding was to be the most important day of her life and wanted it to be as such. My wife's goal was to have the dance floor packed all night and not to let the party die out, and he succeeded over and above. In addition to music, he also brought up-lighting which tied our big room together so that it all felt like a party not just the dance floor, the projector and spot lighting for the dance floor, and what my wife really liked was his dancing on the clouds effect. For our first dance he had this fog machine that filled up the dance floor with fog making it look like we were literally dancing on clouds, awesome; none of the guests knew about it before hand and was definitely a highlight for everyone. So to those out there looking for a cheap dj with speakers that can play the normal top 40 songs, DJ Paul is not for you, he is a professional offering a service, and one must pay for professional service.
Thanks to both of you for the great review. I'm so happy I was able to deliver above and beyond all expectations! Loved working with all of you and can't wait to see you at more friends' weddings!
Excellent DJ, many good ideas, Paul knows how weddings work, and what is /is not needed. Asked many questions at initial get together which did not make sense at first, but after explaining, realized these were necessary questions that we would not have thought of. This guy is good.
Thanks Jay for the feedback. It was great working with all of you and pulling off a very successful wedding!
From start to finish, Paul was amazing! I first spoke to him on the phone, & by the end of the call I knew we had found our DJ. At our first meeting he brought up a lot of points that we hadn't even considered which we greatly appreciated. He offered so many great additions to customize our wedding, most of which we used. He responded quickly to our questions and really made sure our day was unique to my husband and I. He really knows what he's doing. We still, a month later are getting comments about our wedding being one of the best and most fun. Paul is the reason for that, you seriously can't get any better.
Thank you so much Melissa! We had a great time celebrating with you and Joshua. I loved working with you throughout the planning process to make sure we pulled off the perfect wedding for the two of you!
Looking forward to seeing you at your friends' weddings (thanks in advance for the future referrals!)
We first met DJ Paul at another family members wedding in July 2014. As the night went on, we were in awe at how hard and focused he was on making the couples day special and just perfect. We knew right then that we wanted to book him for our wedding, even though we had not yet set a date! At our first meeting, we knew that we had made the right decision. We had lots of ideas and he was able to take them all and help us plan out our special day. As we finally set our date in October 2015, we had the pleasure of working with Paul for about a year and a half. He was so responsive to text, email and calls.
As the wedding day came, we did not have to worry about a single detail. DJ Paul performed our Outdoor Ceremony music as well as our Reception Music and up-lighting. The dance floor was packed all night long, Paul as able to play off of the crowd, he knew what to play out of our playlist and requested songs to get our guest out on the dance floor. The up-lighting was awesome, it started with purple and changed throughout the night.
We highly recommend DJ Paul and his staff to anyone who is looking for a great DJ. We were so happy with our choice!
Paul was very easy to work with and an excellent DJ for our wedding! He was always available via a phone call, email or even a text whenever we needed anything from him and we had absolutely no concerns or problems with using Paul as our DJ. He even offers a bunch of extra lighting, sound, and visual effect features to help make your wedding day truly one of a kind and what you've always dreamed of. At one point during our reception, he even got on the dance floor and showed all of our guests how to do the 'Wobble' so everyone could join in! Highly recommended DJ!
Dj Paul Michaels was amazing! He is organized, attentive, and has the latest technology. Our uplighting was beautiful and the music was exactly what we wanted. He helped us plan or timeline, gave us tons of suggestions on everything from music to games to when to cut the cake, and kept us and our guests dancing all night. We highly recommend him.
Thanks Krystle! It was a pleasure getting to know both of you and working with you. Hope to see you in the future at your friends' weddings!
We were very happy we went with him as our DJ. He made the planning process seem more coordinated with very modern software that you could choose songs for "do" and "do not" play lists. Also he helped to pick out songs for the special dances and games if you needed it. We were happy that he had an assistant since he had some time to do some extras that I think might have been difficult without one. First we had a special effect called “dancing on the clouds” which was the DJ using dry ice to send a cloud of fog under our feet while we danced. This was a surprise hit with our family and friends, while it may be expensive, the wow factor alone makes this a worthwhile endeavor. Also his assistant took photos which were comparable to our own professional photographers. Lastly he assisted in the planning of the wedding as a whole, his website software allows for a timeline and can be used as a guide for the whole day. On top of that, DJ Paul Michael was willing to be in communication with other vendors and helped them queue up photos, make announcements and gave advice to help everything run smoothly. He also responded very fast to all of our questions compared to other experiences we have had in this wedding planning process.
Thanks Beth and Alex! You guys were great to work with and I was happy to help you work through the (very tedious) planning process to pull of a perfect wedding for the both of you! Looking forward to seeing you at your friends' weddings in the future!
Paul was very professional and fun to work with through the whole wedding planning. He has a site that makes it really easy to pick all your specialty songs and request certain songs. This site also helps u find a lot of songs that we had not thought of. He helped plan the timing of the events for the evening, such as introductions, cake cutting, ceremony, speeches. We had a great time with him and he kept our dance floor full. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a fun yet professional Dj. He also took a lot of great pictures for us throughout the night.
Thanks for leaving the review Amanda! Working with both of you was fantastic and I'm glad I was able to deliver everything you wanted for your wedding!
