  • I can't recommend Paul enough. He removed SO much stress from our wedding day. He not only made sure our wedding day was absolutely perfect & SO much fun, but he also made sure to connect with our other vendors, & create a timeline. He was not only our DJ but also our wedding planner (a true two-for-one). Throughout the whole wedding process, he would plan & schedule meeting check-points, to make sure we were all on the same page. It was so nice to know that we could really trust him as a vendor to go above and beyond. He made every single step in the wedding process feel extremely personalized and I am so grateful for him. He also took photos throughout the night, so to our surprise, he sent us a link with a bunch of pictures!!! Thank you!

    Thanks Melanie for this review! Loved working with you (and your Persian DJ) throughout the process. When we first met at that bridal show I think you already had a feeling that we'd do everything possible to take care of you! So glad this shows throughout the whole process! Looking forward to seeing you at your friends weddings!!

  • Paul was amazing, he not only helped us organize and plan our wedding timeline but he made sure our wedding day went flawlessly! We would highly recommend using Paul Michaels Events for any occasion! He was easy to work with and was extremely professional. If you want a DJ to get everyone excited to hit the dance floor and one who is very experienced, Paul is the one to hire. This company is the only one we will use from now on! Thanks so much Paul! We appreciate everything you did for us on our special day!

  • We had an incredible experience using Paul Michaels events for our wedding. DJ Paul is experienced in wedding prep and helped us to both feel at ease during the stressful planning time. He then exceeded our wildest expectations with a great set that got everyone up dancing! Him and his team didn't overlook a single detail and were a huge part in our fun wedding! We definitely recommend Paul and his team!

  • We are SO GLAD we chose Paul Michaels Events to DJ our wedding this past Saturday! We had Ian as our DJ and Brian as our Assistant. They were both AMAZING and helped make our event unforgettable. We knew we were in good hands with Paul Michaels as after we met with him once, we cancelled all our other prospective DJ meetings and booked with him! DJs Ian and Brian had our dance floor packed all night, did all the uplighting for our venue, did an awesome job with the Dancing On The Clouds that we added for our first dance (so special) and making sure all the speeches went off without a hitch. They even got to know our personalities and called my 'husband' up for a photo opp. in the DJ booth with his groomsmen, which made for an awesome memory. I would give them the highest recommendation to anyone I know looking for any kind of DJ services!

  • The Special Events DJz team helped bring my wedding together. They were on time. Very professional and the owner, Mike, was super friendly, outgoing, and ALWAYS available over the phone. We had cake mapping done on our Disney themed cake. The cake artist did an AMAZING job and it turned out exactly as we envisioned it. They also provided a beautiful monogram with our names and the Disney castle which fit our Disney theme perfectly. Now, as far as their bilingual DJ/MC....I would NOT go with DJ Noel.  I hate leaving a negative review BUT we felt he was inexperienced and had we known he would have made so many errors, we would have opted for another more experienced DJ/MC even if he was not bilingual. Would we hire Special Events Djz again? Most likely yes! Would we want Noel as our DJ/MC........sorry HARD pass. He needs way more training on his MC skills, spanish translation, and overall staying organized and sticking to the couples requests. Either way, thank you Special Events DJZ fo... Read more

  • We used Paul as the DJ for our wedding on 9/8/18 and he was amazing! We got several compliments from our wedding guests about how much they enjoyed the music (and one even said it was the best music they'd ever heard at a wedding). The dance floor was full all night long! He made the planning process very easy, and he was one of our most organized vendors. I highly recommend Paul for any event!

  • We had Paul for our wedding on 6/30/18. Leading up to the wedding he was organized, helpful, and pretty much willing to do everything to make sure our reception went perfectly. He worked as a day of coordinator - working with all of the other vendors to ensure everyone was on the same page - we were SO thankful for this part of his service - and it helped put us at ease. Paul and his assistant were so professional and helpful at the reception, making sure everyone was in place and ready before we were announced. Throughout dinner he went to every table asking for requests - something we'd never seen done before. Guests even said that he was super friendly! Every guest I've talked to since the wedding has commented on how good the music selection was. Each song flowed right into the next one and there was never any stoppage of music. We spent all night on the dance floor and loved every second of it! We definitely recommend DJ Paul Michaels Events to anyone that needs a DJ for an... Read more

  • Paul Michaels events was AMAZING! He was so detail oriented and on top of his game. Our wedding went flawlessly and was so much fun because of his music! His equipment was top of the line and the software he uses to prepare for the event made the process of selecting music seemless and fun. I can’t say enough good things about his DJ services. Worth every penny. :):)

  • I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Paul Michaels Events as my wedding DJ and photo booth. From the start Paul provided excellent and attentive service. He is extremely knowledgeable about the wedding world and has tremendously helpful insight. He was able to answer any an all questions we had without any hesitations. The online tools provided are wonderful to help nail down the details and made the planning process painless. Additionally, he was very reassuring through out the entire process and ultimately provided an excellent wedding day experience. He and his assistant were timely, kept us on track, played all of our requested songs and kept the party moving. After the wedding I had several people tell me he was one of the best wedding DJ's they had ever seen. 10 / 10 I would recommend his company for your event.

  • Paul Michael Events was a clear and easy choice for us when it came to picking our DJ. The first time we met with Paul Michael, he really listened and understood what our vision was for the night of our wedding reception. He was well organized, proactive, personable, and not pushy. He had a lot of experience and helped us with some of the details we had not thought about. We did not have a wedding coordinator and ultimately decided to go with Paul Michael Events as they acted as both a coordinator and a DJ. The night of the wedding, the flow of music was perfect and they kept everyone on the dance floor. They really helped make our night special. We highly recommend Paul Michael Events!

  • 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.

  • 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 ... Read more

  • 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 ... Read more
