Your Event, Realized

Chicago’s #1 Trusted DJ Company 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, a top DJ company in Chicago, 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 you design and plan each event to perfection.

The “cookie cutter” approach is outdated. Our DJs employ a different, more personable approach we know our clients appreciate. And after more than 10 years of entertaining hundreds of people, we know this approach works.

How is our Boutique Approach Different than that of other Chicago DJ Companies?

We handpick our DJs for your event based on your specified preferences and tastes. By doing that, we ensure that your DJ are an excellent fit for you and your event.

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

How The Paul Michaels Events Process Works

First, We Meet

We set up a time for either an in-person meeting at a local coffee shop, or we can meet via Video Chat or a phone call. The choice is yours!

Then, We Lock It Down

Once you decide to book our DJ company, we’ll send you a contract, which can be signed instantly online or from a mobile device.

Now, We Pick Your DJ

Once we check the availability of our awesome DJs, we’ll help you pick a DJ best suited to your style and taste.

Lastly, We Plan Your Event

After booking, we meet to set up your Event Planning account on our website, and discuss the order of events for your special night. That’s it!
