Your Event, Realized

Chicago’s #1 Trusted DJ and Entertainment Company

A Day You’ll Remember

We make it our mission to get to know each client personally, which helps us achieve perfection in designing and planning your event

There’s a reason Paul Michaels Events, one of the top DJ companies in Chicagoland, has received dozens of awards from Wedding Wire. That reason? We’ve always offered a “boutique approach” to entertainment. Unlike the larger multi-operational DJ companies who emphasize booking as many clients as possible, we focus on getting to know each client personally, and invest time in helping design and plan each event to perfection. The “cookie cutter” approach is outdated, so we wanted to employ a different, more personable approach we knew our clients would appreciate. And after more than 10 years, we’ve stuck to our successful approach.

What is the main differentiator of your Uniquely Effective Boutique Approach?

We handpick out DJs for your event based on your specified preferences and tastes. We also make sure that you and your chose DJ are an excellent fit.

Our Guarantee: The DJ whose name is on your contract will be the DJ at your event.

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.
