My bid includes email planning time, to agree on any "must play" and "do not play" songs, how interactive I am
during the dance, and anything you'd like me to coordinate and MC, such as a Grand Entrance, Clinking Games,
Cake Cutting, Toasts, Shoe Game, First Dance, Snowball, Anniversary Dance, Sexy Approach Routine,
Blindfolded Groom Leg-Feeling Guessing Game, Garter Removal, Bouquet Toss, Full Room Conga Line, Group
Photo on the Dance Floor and more.  I will NOT start up any DJ Routine without prior approval from you.  I have
over 25 years of FULL TIME experience and have won “Best DJ” awards several times over the years from
Minnesota Bride, The Knot, Gigmasters and Thumbtack.   I am known for upbeat attitude, keeping the music
moving along, using the microphone as needed with a strong, non-monotonous, clear voice, taking requests and
timing them just right between fast/slow, new/old, and different genres. My musical knowledge is important,
especially for guests making requests where they are unsure of the artist or song title.
There are no hidden charges that will come up later for insurance, taxes, meals, parking, etc.
I offer some add-ons at an extra charge. These include up lights around the room, 18” bass subwoofer, 10’ Truss
over the back of my stage, karaoke with TV, custom song re-mixes for surprise dances, slide show productions,
projector/screen rentals, large, slow-moving mirror ball on a tall 7-foot stand, fog, bubbles, and more effect
lighting such as ROBOTIC ARM shape projectors.  The most popular add-on is a wedding ceremony, which varies
in price depending on the location and the equipment I need to provide- I have a quiet generator for ceremonies
far from electrical outlets. ....but there is MORE!  A 1-hour, sit down, face to face group planning session would be
an extra charge depending on time and place, andI also have an ellipsoidal spot light available which holds a size
B metal gobo, to project shapes onto the walls or dance floor, such as a monogram, snowflakes, autumn leaves,
or starry sky. If you’ve seen anything anywhere that you like, I can re-create it.  Any music, Any lights, Any DJ
routines- I follow YOUR preferences.  

In 2002 I was picked by Minnesota Bride Magazine as the top name-booked DJ
for my "friendly style of interaction" and have earned over 200 5-star reviews
on Weddingwire, the Knot, Thumbtack and Gigmasters.

Pricing for an experienced DJ/MC/Coordinator with top-quality sound and lights, liability insurance, unlimited
planning time, any music you like, up to 10 hours of performance time on a peak-season Saturday within 100
miles of Minneapolis, is usually $1295 or more, but I can find ways to SAVE you HUNDREDS!

No charge for music:
I agree to obtain advance music requests, and purchase downloads during the dance.
No need to spend a lot of time picking music: You can trust me to read the room, and follow
just a few guidelines, a few must play and a few do not play instructions.
I have taken over 5000 requests from guests over the years and know how to pace the
new and old, fast and slow, etc. to keep things fresh and the dance floor full.
I have tasteful ways to "freshen up" the music with little things I might say or mix in.
No charge for backup gear, vehicle and personnel.
I maintain all equipment personally, with backup gear on site, backup van and
backup Disc Jockeys, ready to go in case of any emergency.

"Best DJ I've ever had or worked with. Everyone that attended the wedding has asked for
his contact information and told me the day of the wedding up until a month later
what a great DJ Paul was. I would 100% recommend him for your wedding.
He was able to adjust things accordingly up until 15 minutes prior to the ceremony,
during the ceremony and reception he played an amazing mix of music
based on a few songs we had requested. Thanks again Paul!"
