DJs need to stay current with the times, and we’re no exception! You won’t expect us to be seen anywhere near corny YMCA outfits, or trying to make your event all about us! It’s your event, and we feel that the spotlight should be on you!
The ProcessHaven’t booked a DJ before?
Wondering what the process from here is?
Luckily, we’ve spelled it all out for you. Click through the tabs on the left to understand what it takes to get DJ Paul Michaels for your event!
Check AvailabilityDJ Paul Michaels is one person. (Hopefully this doesn’t shock you). He can only DJ one event per day. Once that day is booked, he is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
However – Paul has some great associate DJs that work for him and have a great track record of performance at events. Paul personally vets every DJ that works for him, and ensures your event will still be AWESOME! If you’d like to go this route, you can still book through DJ Paul Michaels, and all event planning will be with Paul, as long as you’re aware that he won’t be the one showing up the day of your event. This will always be EXTREMELY CLEAR, and listed in your contract.
Discuss Your EventYou should never book a DJ without knowing what they’ll be providing and doing for you!
DJ Paul Michaels personally chats with every client to make sure that all their expectations will be met or exceeded before even booking an event! This conversation can be via phone, video chat, or in-person.
If after chatting and/or meeting with Paul, if you don’t want to book or feel that it isn’t the right fit, no worries! These meetings come with NO OBLIGATION TO BOOK!
Sign a ContractLet’s ink it out and get this on paper! (Well, so to speak)
At this point, to book DJ Paul Michaels for your event, you need to sign a contract, which is done online using an e-Contract. The contract can be signed on any computer, smartphone, or tablet. This contract is in place to make sure all the main event details (such as location, timing, and pricing) are all confirmed and locked down.
The contract is in place to protect you as the client, as well as to protect DJ Paul Michaels. The contract is co-signed (by Paul), and you’ll immediately be provided a downloadable, printable PDF file with the co-signed contract.
PaymentIn order to fully “lock it down” and confirm Paul (or one of his associates) for your event, you’ll need to send your non-refundable retainer fee via check in the mail, Chase QuickPay (compatible with Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and First Bank), or via Credit Card.
Planning Your EventFrom the time of “locking down” DJ Paul Michaels for your event, you’ll work with Paul to plan your event and customize it to make it perfect in every way, especially for you! For weddings, this includes full event coordination and planning!
“He also responded very fast to all of our questions compared to other experiences we have had in this wedding planning process.”
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.
