Time Waste candidate. Chats for couple of days and suddenly says find a more good dj. Horrible experience 😡Jan 27, 2020VerifiedDJ Paul Young's reply
I'm sorry, Nazma! As I said, I cannot entertain 6 year olds with just Bollywood music, I asked you to tell me what the kids did at previous events so I could learn the games they like to play. I was hoping to learn from you before the event but you refused to research it for me, even for a discounted rate for doing so.
Super easy to work with. Excellent communication. Very professional. Fun ideas and games. Kept people on dance floor entire night. Very accommodating. Definitely recommend to anyone and everyone looking for a great dj for their wedding!! You want not be disappointed!Jun 15, 2019Verified
We had a ball with DJ Paul. Our party ended up smaller than anticipated, but Paul kept the atmosphere upbeat and festive. He was able to take all of our requests in addition to the playlist we provided beforehand. Communication with Paul was simple and fee extremely affordable. Thank you DJ Paul. Hopefully, we can book you for our future foster daughters wedding in September!!Jan 28, 2019Verified
Paul was our DJ for our 9/22/18 wedding. He was super nice, professional and accommodating to our every specification. Communication with him was great and he adhered to our Do Not Play/Must Play request form. Everyone had a blast out on the dance floor and he kept things right on schedule with his exuberant MC skills. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ!Sep 28, 2018VerifiedDJ Paul Young's reply
Thank you, Taylor, your review covers important qualities that set me apart. I guarantee to follow the play lists, I keep things moving as a coordinator and I MC with a clear voice and set up a sound system with a special "speech" setting. My website has the planning form that covers many fine details that everyone should consider.
I gave him a 5star because he deserves it! He is such a nice guy easy to work with,He made my daughters birthday party super fun! Kids couldn't stop talking about the party,they had alot of fun! I'm very happy I contacted him for the job,and I will contact him again if need be. And yes i recommend this great DJ. Thumbs up Young and thank you.Jul 3, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Thank you for considering my quote, and keep in mind that I am open to negotiation. I might be able to reduce the price. Some clients prefer to have everything included, covering the most equipment and the largest possible time frame, with no need to add anything later, while other customers prefer a low price with options to add time and / or additional equipment later on. There are never any hidden fees, and you get myself as the DJ/MC.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Anything the customer wants, I provide. Personal planning sessions are always included at no extra charge, where we sit down and discuss all of the options for the event. If meeting in person is inconvenient, I can plan by phone, email, text, etc. I have a planning guide which covers music suggestions and an outline of a typical wedding ceremony and reception. Every event is different, and I enjoy customizing each one.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a college degree which helps my communication skills. I also have over 30 years of experience in the music business, including training as an expert MC, coordinator, and specialist in all styles of music. I have developed sound engineering skills that earn compliments from guests who are impressed with how clear the microphone is, all the way to the back of the room, and during the dance, they tell me they appreciate how I control the volume- I adjust settings actively to maximize the "thump" of the bass without being overwhelming (this is one of my secrets to keeping a dance floor full all night).
