Hi, I’m Paul Peterson, the owner and only operator of High Energy Dj.
Some parties need someone to get the par-tee started and others don’t. I can do either. My experience began in the 80’s as a disc jockey working in clubs. I programmed music, made announcements, planned fun promotions, and danced with the crowd when necessary. In the early 90’s, I took that experience with me and became a mobile DJ working weddings, bar mitzvahs, corporate and holiday events. I bring personalized attention, enthusiasm, and a vast and varied musical library - all on computer. I’m a "people person." Let’s meet for breakfast or lunch and talk about your event. There’s no obligation and getting acquainted is the first step in making your very important decision.
My best regards.

Sincerely Paul Peterson, owner and operator of High Energy Dj, 619-733-9414, info@djpaulpeterson.com Read less

One of the best decisions we made was hire Paul! You can tell he LOVES what he does. He was amazing and a huge part of why our day was perfect and our party unforgettable!
He is incredibly professional, fun, played every song we wanted him to, got all of the announcements perfect, timing was right on...we couldn't sing his praises more. Love him.

Scott I don't think it's possible for you to disappoint. We think you did an awesome job. You allowed me to all the speeches and song requests that I wanted done and I thought that was great! I'm sure it was easy for you to read the crowd since you knew a good chunk of everyone at the wedding.  Even for the small hand full of people that didn't know you were Really impressed.  My little flower girl was so happy about bragging that the DJ gave her a special introduction too. You do an amazing job, thank you so much for being a part of our big day!

Paul Peterson exceeded our expectations!!! This guy can do anything! We hired Paul a year before our wedding and he met with us multiple times because we are so picky. He was extremely flexible to our needs and delivered above and beyond professional entertainment services. Our reception was indoor/outdoor (there were 2 separate outdoor reception areas) and Paul set up speakers in multiple areas and didn't charge extra for any of that.....He also wired the sound system inside the house and in another location to play softer music in a quieter area of the reception while other areas had different dance music. He made it his commitment to not only make us happy, but ensure that our guests were having a great time. Paul is very organized and played all of the songs we had listed and then some. His bedside manner as an MC was energetic and approachable. Guests usually remember only a few things about a wedding....The food and the music. Our guests all agree that Paul is a fantastic DJ and MC. Paul also communicated with our other vendors to ensure everything ran smoothly. He was in no rush to leave, and making sure the reception was running smoothly was more important to him than taking a break. That says a lot, as most other vendors require a break...which is completely appropriate, yet Paul clearly goes above and beyond. We highly recommend Paul Peterson and will use him again in the future.

DJ Paul was one of the best parts of our wedding! He kept the energy up and people just loved him. I can't tell you the number of complements we received about him. He made sure our guests had fun, he was a fantastic MC, and you can see just how much he loves his job. If you need a DJ, I couldn't possibly recommend Paul more.

At my wedding, I had multiple guests ask me where I found the DJ because he was THAT good. Paul did a fantastic job of keeping guests on their feet and having a good time. After hearing a few horror stories about other djs, I was a little nervous about how it would go - but I was so happy with his NORMAL and FUN music selection. He also created a special music mix of a few songs for my parents and in-laws to dance to - definitely shows his desire to make the bride and groom happy.

Paul was amazing! He had people on the dance floor until the very end (11pm, which was impressive since the reception started at 4:30pm!). He really does have a lot of energy, his set up looked professional and neat, and he was just lots of fun! Some people requested pretty hilarious songs and were going to do a little funny dance, and they really appreciated that Paul went up to them and verified that it was okay to call them out before announcing to all 115 guests (which was so great since it was an older uncle in our family). It was just so considerate of him to make sure no one was offended or embarrassed, but that if people were willing, he could make it a really fun thing. He was so respectful, did a great job getting everyone together for a group photo of everyone at the wedding (for what will for sure be an amazing keepsake!), and always had a smile on his face. We couldn't have found a better DJ, and for SUCH a reasonable price! You can really tell he just loves his job. Thanks Paul!!

Love, love, loved working with Paul. He was the first vendor we selected which led us down the path to the most amazing line-up of the most wonderful people I ever could have imagined.

Paul made the whole process so easy. He was always very quick to respond to emails and phone calls. Since we were planning a San Diego wedding from NYC this was very important. On the day of he was so easy going - we felt very cared for, supported, and didn't have to worry about thing. He was great during the reception and keeping the guests informed and keeping the party going. Simply loved him.

We even had feedback from some of our guests who said the music selection before the ceremony was so spot on they had happy tears in their eyes before things had even begun!

I highly recommend him if you want a fun, fabulous, and chaos-free wedding. :)

WOW.

Double wow if I can. DJ Paul was hands down, the best ever DJ I've ever seen in a wedding. So glad we had him for ours! I haven't really seen him at work but he had some videos up at YouTube and when we watched it, we knew we wanted him to be our wedding DJ.

Our expectations were exceeded! Completely blown out of the water. He not only had our music down to a T, he emceed, he made sure the flow of the schedule was followed, he fixed the tv we had that didn't work to show our montage to the guests, and everyone raved and danced and had an amazing time at the wedding. Our wedding would not have been seamless without his help. He knew how to get the people up and dancing, and he had endless energy. You can tell he loves what he does, and doesn't do it for money. For the amount of work he does, he can surely charge more, for he is one of the most reasonably priced DJs I've seen, but he doesn't. We love, love, love the work he did for our wedding. We still get compliments for the awesome job that he did for our special event. If there's anything I can suggest, it'll be to book DJ Paul as early as you can. He will make your wedding amazing.

The BEST of the BEST! We had Paul as our dj for our wedding two weeks ago. We are STILL hearing people go on about how great he was and how it was the most fun wedding they have ever been to. I have never been to a wedding where people actually danced other than to the cha cha or electric slide, but Paul kept people on the dance floor the WHOLE night. He even got my father and my husband (who if anybody knows them, do not dance at all) to dance more than I did. I told Paul my music preferences were old school with a little classic rock and he kept the old school jams flowing all night long. There was never a dull moment throughout the night and the one time it slowed down a little (due to the heat inside the building and everyone moved outside for fresh air) Paul jumped on the dance floor and started doing pull ups on the ceiling beams and got everyone pumped up again. I've always heard about all the horrible things that usually go wrong at weddings so I went into mine with low expectations and it turned out to be the best night of my life. Paul, YOU ROCK!
