My name is Lenny, also known as DJ Astir, and I am the owner, and sole DJ at Astir Entertainment. I serve on the board of the American Disc Jockey Association (San Diego Chapter) as Vice President, and hold a very high level of standards to my work. I am a veteran of the United States Navy, and have been a professional DJ for about 8 years. I started off in the club industry, and two years ago I switched over to doing private events, specializing in the wedding industry. This is my full time job, so you can be rest assured that I will put as much attention into your wedding as if it were my own.

My mixing style is turntable based, and I spin all styles of music! With a background in the club industry, you can be rest assured that I can seamlessly blend tracks, and keep your dance floor packed! I am a subscriber to multiple DJ record pools, and acquire all high quality (and legal!) music, from all genres.

My style in acting as your Master of Ceremonies is a very professional approach. I am a good public speaker, and can speak clearly, and with confidence, yet I always keep the focus on you! I definitely am not a "cheesy" DJ. I work well with coordinators to make sure that your big day stays on time, fun, and professional! Read less

Lenny and his assistant are fantastic! He has a great speaking voice, and is very professional. He commanded a presence but was not overbearing. He played exactly what we wanted, and helped us every step of the way via e-mail phone, and even texting. I was having a disorganized bride moment, as my fiance and I were moving the week before our wedding, and wasn't good at responding to e-mails. He called me to check up and make sure that we had everything we needed, and helped me stay on track.

We asked him to change the type of music in the middle of the wedding to accommodate some of our guests' requests, and he transitioned flawlessly. Most importantly, he was on time, stuck to our timeline (and adjusted when we didn't, lol) and communicated with us and our coordinator throughout the whole wedding. We got so many compliments from our guests about the music, DJ, and lighting. We felt like Lenny really cared about us and our event, and will always go to him for future events.

Lenny, by far was the most fantastic vendor I worked with when I put together my wedding. When I first called he got back to me right away and was extremely professional. We met at the venue (our backyard) and the value of what he could offer (DJ, uplighting, mic-ing the ceremony, doing the lighting, MC'ing to make sure guests could be at the right place at the right time AND filmed my wedding!) couldn't be beat. When we had some changes to the yard which gave some concern to the setup, he even came out a second time to make sure we could make it work. On top of this, Lenny and his business partner Andy are extremely kind -- the kind of people you would want to be friends with. The day of the wedding he was our MVP and really made the night. I know he had 3 events that weekend before mine, but he treated my wedding like it was his only event. The sound was fantastic for the ceremony, toasts and dancing. I can't thank him enough!

DJ Astir is the best. You get an online event planning website to use to specify songs that you want to play, plan special features, and create an event timeline to ensure that everything goes smoothly. We knew exactly what was going to happen, and our wedding was great, just like we planned. We found DJ Astir at a Bridal Bazaar in Del Mar, California, he provided the best value, the most attractive service, and he let us know that he would take care of the event, and that it would be great and it was. After the wedding, I was getting so many complements on the DJ, and many of our guests have DJs in their own families. He was on point all night, the music always sounded good, was the right selections, and was consistently smooth. He is a pro, needless to say, he doesn't mess up. DJ Astir really does have it all, appearance (to suit your event), best price (out of the 12-14 DJs I've talked to - we went to about 5-6 Bridal Bazaar type events all over Riverside and San Diego Counties), and you get the online event planning website. I recommend DJ Astir.

Mr. Paulson is a very professional DJ. There were some obstacles that were last minute and the transition was seamless, music was played and knew what was going on every minute of the event. He took control of the schedule and made things happen. In light of the hiccups that were received from hotel management, nothing stopped him from letting the wedding reception continue.

I will recommend him to every one I know! Hands down the best I have ever had!

We found Lenny at the Bridal Bazaar in San Diego. When he greeted us, I knew right then and there that I wanted him to DJ our wedding. He offered an excellent package along with non-stop communication and appointments. Although we live 500 mines away his online planning and email responses were quick. When in town he was efficient and able to set up meetings where we were able to accomplish and complete "things" that needed to get done, thank you Lenny for that! And note, he shows up on time :)

Lenny was extremely accommodating and excellent at getting the party started and keeping the party going at our wedding. He was able to stick to the timeline and complete all the formalities with accompanied with throwing an wedding (ie. first dance, cake cutting, money dance, bouquet/garter, etc). Our guest were singing his praises days after the wedding as he "put it down!"

Thank you Lenny for making our wedding and enjoyable and unforgettable event. We can't wait to see the ceremony footage!

Regards,
Sabrana & Alex

With my venue for my wedding at the Grand Del Mar it was so important to have a DJ who could create the diverse ambiance we were looking for, DJ Astiir NAILED it! I would highly recommend Leonard Paulsen for any and all events including the biggest event in our lives, our wedding! He and his partner were incredible and helped to make our experience now a lifetime positive memory for not only myself and my new hubby but all of our guests both young and old(er) :D

He was the DJ for our ceremony and wedding. We had a cocktail hour that immediately followed our ceremony, with that being said he had two set ups to do. Our reception area was more concerned with making more money during lunch instead of getting the area cleared for set up of the DJ and decorations. So he was left to set up with less time than he would have liked. He was still able to get everything set up for our ceremony. Overall I was very satisfied with the whole process from our initial meeting to our reception. You can not go wrong with hiring him for your DJ needs.
