I used Paul Anthony Entertainment because I had some friends that said how great they were. They were right! I had Sam and Frank as my DJ's and they did an amazing job. Everyone had a great time at my wedding. We used the photo booth which was great. I loved having a photo book with all the pictures that were taken in there with little notes from my guests. We also used the monogram, lighting package, and piano player for cocktail hour. When I first met with Paul, he was extremely professional. Payments were so easy to make online. Sam was wonderful with being able to play all the songs that we wanted. I can't say enough great things!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING are the only words I can think of to describe Paul Anthony Entertainment. We had a unique reception and needed the best of the best to make sure the evening flowed the right way and Paul Anthony delivered that and then some! Two months later and people are still talking about how great our DJ was! Most people said the night just flowed flawlessly and he played something for everyone. I could not be happier with Paul Anthony. His passion for making my wedding top-notch was what sold us and we were thrilled with our decision. You're really compromising your event if you don't hire him! Thanks again Paul. You truly are the best in the business.

Paul Anthony came highly recommended by a number of reputable wedding establishments. We had decided to go with Paul and we're not surprised that he was an awesome DJ ...given his credentials. He knew exactly what we wanted, he handled all of our needs with little or no direction. We got married at The Bernard's Inn, small intimate wedding, Paul Anthony read our crowd and knew exactly what to do to get the crowd motivated, without unwanted intervention...just as we requested. Overall, above and beyond our expectations, very accommodating...Highly recommended!!!!

We met with several entertainment groups before choosing Paul Anthony Entertainment, and definitely made the right choice. Paul was great to deal with and our DJ James was fantastic! He met with us ahead of time to get a feel for our style and song preferences. We had a few requests in addition to our intro and first dance choices and he played them all! Honestly, the night went so fast I forgot about them until I heard them play, including a last minute surprise song request to my uncle. He played a good mix to keep the dance floor moving and for every one of all ages – we had a pretty young crowd, but even my 94 year old grandma was out there dancing it up. He didn’t forget our “last dance” song either, which wasn’t traditional, but had special meaning to us. Not only were we very happy, but we had several guests comment on how great the DJ was. We wanted a fun wedding, and James delivered!

We booked Paul Anthony and Alex for DJ, percussionist, and uplighting. As the comment below me states, I wish there were more than 5 stars we could give to the team. They were so great to work with from start to finish. In preparing the evening with Paul, he knew how to handle my feedback but tastefully provided his professional advice on things. There was no lengthy playlist we needed to provide him, all it took was one 30 minute conversation. He asked the right kind of questions to get a feel for what vibe we were looking for. The uplighting was AMAZING, and I couldn't believe this was the same ballroom I saw when we first checked out the Molly Pitcher Inn. The transitions from different music genres was flawless, and my guests were telling me how awesome the percussionist (Alex) was. My aunt from Los Angeles even said if only they did work on the West Coast she would book them in a second! My guests also did not feel rushed to hit the dance floor as each course was served (even though it was hardly empty the entire night). The right songs were played at the right times and satisfied my guests of all ages - even our two grandmothers hit the dance floor!! I can't wait until someone asks me for a referral because Paul Anthony Entertainment will be the first ones I tell them about!

If only the ratings went higher than 5. Paul and his team deserve a 10. Paul Anthony Entertainment is a class act business. We HIGHLY recommend Paul. From beginning to end, Paul becomes part of your story and looks to impart his professional experience while at the same time understanding the kind of party you are looking to have. Paul is not only a fellow industry colleague but a dear friend. We danced the night away and Paul danced right along with us. He pulsed the party and provided the perfect mix of songs throughout the entire reception.

Paul takes care of everything related to entertainment. Let Paul Anthony Entertainment entertain your wedding or social occasion.

We love you, Paul!
We cannot wait to book you for our next party. Yes, Dad is already trying to see the next function you can come to! :)

Love,
Lauren and Kris

DJ Paul Anthony was exceptional. From start to finish, he made us feel like celebrities at our wedding. It was such a wonderful feeling, looking around the room, seeing all the people we love up out of their seats and on the dance floor. For the photo montage, when Elton John belted out 'hold me closer, tiny dancer,' he timed it perfectly so that it slowly panned on a photo of myself in a tutu from my younger years. I thought this was indicative of the attention to detail and finishing touches Paul brought to all aspects of our wedding. We got so many comments that him and his team were the best DJ's ever and we would agree. We would highly recommend him and selfishly by doing so, we hope we are invited to a wedding with him as DJ so we can relive all the fun!

He noticed the little moments with my grandparents and called them out during the evening which made everything extra special.

Leading up to the wedding, he was very responsive to all of our emails and met with us later in the evening to accommodate our work schedules which we greatly appreciated. He was organized the day of the wedding and made sure to play all the songs we requested. We were thrilled that we chose Paul Anthony and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional DJ that can keep the dance floor full all night. Thanks for everything Paul Anthony! We loved working with you!

Overall, I really liked my experience with Paul Anthony Entertainment. We elected to have a DJ do the music for our ceremony and reception (we both in the same non-religious venue). We worked with Vince Costa, and he did a good job of getting the party bumpin'. Vince was open and communicative, and definitely read the crowd well and accepted requests. This was great, because we didn't give him much of a playlist, other than asking for not a lot of rap or corny songs like the Electric Slide. The only trouble spots we had were minor: there were some flubs with the wedding party's names and he accidentally swapped the Father/Bride dance song with the Groom/Mother song. Not by any means ruinous and everything was corrected quickly. The ceremony was perfect and we're glad we had him on hand. Their prices were on par with their competitors, so that's great too. We didn't elect to use their photo-booth or add on packages (like lighting), but if you're looking for more than a basic DJ these guys are well equipped to handle it. The owner, Paul Anthony, is very personable and I appreciated that he didn't give me a "hard-sell" pitch like other DJ companies did. I do hope he gets a secretary or assistant because he was at times difficult to reach. But, we had no issues once he connected us directly with the DJ on staff, Vince. Overall, this is a well-done outfit and I recommend it!

Paul really knows how to run his business. My brother and sister-in-law hired him for their wedding in 2005...I still remember how fun it was even though it was years ago, and so glad he was available for our wedding date!! When we met up with him, he was never pushy, very honest and to the point. We booked exactly what we needed and he was so easy going. He at least gave us the courtesy of letting us know there was another inquiry on our date before we were able to book; we appreciated this so much because another vendor booked our date to someone else without warning.

Fast forward to our creative session shortly before the wedding. Paul really understood what we wanted from our reception; the music, the vibe, etc. We were excited and relieved to know he would do a good job. And he did...he truly delivered. Our uplighting looked amazing, he got the crowd going early, he paid attention to small details, and needless to say, my husband and I crowd surfed at our own reception. So many of our guests complimented him and his crew. We will definitely recommend him to our many friends getting married!

Our wedding was as great as it was because of Paul Anthony Entertainment. DJ Sam kept the entire guest list on the dance floor. From start to finish, working with Paul Anthony Entertainment was easy, professional and worth the value. Our wedding guests ranged in all ages and DJ Sam was able to keep everyone entertained all night long. They also provided us with a photobooth in our package and it was a major highlight of the evening. Guests were thrilled to have this option and our photobooth guest book is hysterical! PAE also did our uplighting which transformed the wedding into something truly amazing. I would highly recommend Paul Anthony Entertainment and you'd be lucky to get DJ Sam to work your wedding!

Let me start this review by saying that James was our DJ (employed by Paul Anthony Entertainment) and he was fantastic. He really felt out the vibe of our wedding and played amazing music that made us VERY happy.

All of the paperwork was done with Paul Anthony (the owner of the company), and since he is usually booked up, he then assigns you to a DJ that he feels suits your needs. He assigned us with James, and he was spot on. While Paul is professional and extremely knowledgeable, we did question some of his prices during negotiation because he was on the high side. Instead of explaining the difference in price to us between him and the other guys, he made some remarks that made me uncomfortable negotiating. My other gripe was that the day before the wedding, we agreed via e-mail that two uplights (uplighting was purchased through him as well for the event as a package) would be placed outside. This never happened. I was never told why or what happened - I am sure there was a good reason it didn't happen, but I probably should have gotten an explanation as to why my guests were in the dark outside.

To sum it up, besides a few minor hiccups, the DJ was amazing (James), the uplighting in the ballroom was AMAZING, and the equipment and DJ stand looked extremely professional. I would definitely recommend Paul Anthony Entertainment for any wedding or event.

Paul Anthony Entertainment responded with the following comments:

Joelle, thank you for your review.
In response with regards to the lighting outside. When I was on site earlier in the day to set up, the outdoor area where the 2 up-lights where requested was not secure. The outdoor area of Women's Club faced a street that had a lot of foot traffic and I did not feel safe leaving the lighting gear there unattended for such a long period of time.

Paul Anthony Entertainment exceeded all of our expectations! We received countless compliments on Paul's work at our wedding - on everything from the song choices to Paul's professionalism. Our uplighting looked fabulous too, and we got a great deal on it! We were told numerous times that we had the best DJ anyone had ever experienced! We truly believe that your choice for a DJ/entertainer makes all the difference for a wedding reception. In sum, Paul was at all times professional, knowledgeable, pleasant to work with, and simply the best choice for any event. We're so happy we worked with him and Paul Anthony Entertainment in general. Thanks to him, we had an AMAZING wedding reception and no one wanted to stop dancing! I'd recommend him a million times!

We absolutely loved our wedding because of our DJ. I would recommend him to the fullest extent of my being. He was very good at getting a feel for the crowd and playing music for everyone. At the end of the night, pretty much everyone was on the dance floor and it was amazing for us. It was like being on a cloud. He did an outstanding job and was the best wedding DJ I've ever seen.

Paul is what my husband and I consider to be a "real DJ." We met with another company prior to meeting with Paul and were not sure it was a good fit. After meeting Paul, we knew we wanted the best and that's what Paul is. We've been to other events where the "DJ" just plays music. Paul is a master at mixing and incorporating live music into it.
Everyone told us he was the best DJ they ever heard and that our music was the perfect blend for the crowd. The dance floor was packed all night! We cannot be happier and know that any future party will include Paul and his team!

Paul came recommended to me through my wedding planner and I couldn't have been happier!

I wanted my guests to walk away saying they had never seen/heard a DJ like that before and that's exactly what I got. Paul came dressed looking stylish but classic. His equipment was the same. At our pre-wedding meeting we discussed the type of music I was looking for and he did exactly what I asked. The dance floor was packed all night! Everyone from the 20 somethings to the 80 somethings enjoyed his mix of music.

I also hired him for up lighting around the room and a photo booth. I loved working with one vendor for three big items. And he didn't disappoint in any area. The lighting was colorful but not overwhelming. The photo booth was a huge hit and the quality of the images were great.

All around a wonderful experience. You can't go wrong!

Paul Anthony himself dj'ed my wedding and he was absolutely incredible. He kept the party going the whole night long, did exactly what we asked of him, and was also incredibly professional. At first, I thought he was a teeny bit more expensive than other DJs I had called, but he was absolutey worth it! We also had uplighting as well as 2 lights and they definitely added to the event. If you are thinking about Paul, just go for him! Everyone at the party said he was the best DJ they ever heard. He also did a great job at getting guests of all ages up on the floor.

Paul Anthony Entertainment is unparalleled in the DJ/Entertainment industry. Paul and two assistants created an amazing atmosphere at our wedding, on October 22, 2011 at Shadowbrook in Shrewsbury, NJ. My husband and I knew we wanted Paul himself, so we booked him over a year before our wedding date. Throughout the process, he was attentive and accommodating to our unique tastes. I remember, during our first meeting, feeling amazed at how much effort he puts into his events. I realized that being a DJ at a wedding was a science, and Paul had perfected it. I felt like we were on the same page when we discussed the atmosphere we wanted to create and how we wanted to incorporate our tastes with that of our guests. His dedication and interest were evident and our requests were met with an impeccable attention to detail. From that day, I knew our wedding would be in good hands.
The actual day was truly a dream come true, and it started when Paul informed us that he brought a photographer to snap photos and display them on a plasma screen throughout the reception. We were elated. Guests are still raving about how impressed they were with this feature. Everyone had a blast viewing the photos during the party. We dreamed of having the dance floor packed from the beginning to the end of the evening, and Paul delivered. Our guests had an amazing time, and are still telling us how much fun they had. Paul was so professional and exceeded our expectations for creating the atmosphere we wanted. In addition, Paul wasted no time posting the 90+ plasma screen photos on Facebook! They were up the very next day! It was so amazing to get to see the photos of us and our guests so shortly after our event. Hands down, Paul Anthony Entertainment is the cream of the crop in terms of wedding entertainment. We will continue endorsing and recommending him to every bride and groom we know!

Paul did a phenomenal job with our wedding. Despite some timing/scheduling issues from our side, he was nothing but accommodating, patient and very professional. On the day of, he provided great service, both for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The uplighting was awesome - we had some discussions if it would be worth the money and are really glad we did go for it. So many friends and family made a point of telling me they loved the DJ & music. Basically everyone was dancing all the time. My husband used to be a DJ/MC himself back in the day, so his bar was pretty high, but Paul didn't disappoint. Couldn't have asked for more!

After my sister used Paul Anthony for her wedding back in 2005, we knew instantly we wanted to have him at our wedding. Paul Anthony is such a pleasure to work with and knows exactly what makes a great party. He spent the time to get to know Dan and I and it really showed during the night. He helped run the wedding to make sure it went smoothly and everyone had a good time. We were looking at our photos and EVERYONE was on the dance floor the entire night. He played music for all ages and really played off of the crowd. He definitley goes above and beyond to ensure your wedding is memorable and that you have the best night. All of our family and friends can't stop talking about how much fun they had on the dance floor and how good the music was! I would recommend him to anyone who loves to dance and wants to have a great night!

Paul Anthony was terrific! I can't tell you how many guests (while on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG) told me repeatedly how great the music was. He was so flexible, as we had a long list of "must plays" (which he played) and we gave him a general idea of the fast songs, which he read the crowd and did EXACTLY what we wanted. He added a HUGE success to our entrances in providing the song our Best Man walked out to, which was a huge hit and MADE our entrance one that everyone has continued to talk about. In a stressful process of planning, everytime I met with Paul Anthony all stress was lifted. He was fantastic!

If you are looking for a DJ who knows how to appeal to any crowd and keep your dance floor packed, look no further than Paul Anthony Entertainment. Paul sets the tone on and off of the dance floor. One of the lasting memories of our wedding was the music. Everyone raved about how awesome our DJ was and how he appealed to every single person (young and old). Honestly, the only time people were in their seats was when dinner was served. Looking back on our experience the only thing that may be better than Paul's ability to captivate an audience is his personality. Paul is incredibly easy to talk to, open to suggestion, funny and incredibly helpful. He will help you craft exactly what you want based on your musical tastes and the diversity of your guests. When my husband and I were going over our likes and dislikes we actually saw the wheels working in Paul's head. And the best part was he was as excited as we were about the music! When you pay for a service you expect quality. When you book Paul Anthony Entertainment you not only receive the highest quality in the industry, but you also get unparalleled professionalism, personality, and flair. Paul made our wedding the most memorable day not only for my husband and I, but for all of our guests as well. Oh, and he DJ'd our wedding on his birthday! If that is not dedication and service, I don't know what is.

James DePaul was our DJ, he asked us to send him a list of songs to play and not to play. We did just that and were mis-led, from the list we provided he did not play most of the songs we noted. Also we specifically asked that no requests be made and at our wedding and he opened up the floor asking guests for requests. Because of this I had to hear all night happy birthday this person, happy anniversery that couple. It wasn't the sophisticated behavior we asked for when we met with Paul Anthony in 2009. During the wedding there were a couple of songs played that wasn't blended properly, example during the ceremony a song was cut short because of poor timing and during the reception at one point the CD skipped! In the end the music was not what we wanted and I did not throw a bridezilla fit, instead I took it in and made the best of it. We have a few events turning up later this year and 2011 and this is one vendor we are going to stay away from.

We met with Paul back in 2009 and he interviewed us and asked about our style and what we wanted and didn't want. We told him we were looking to have an elegant wedding, something with a DJ that would play music, not someone who is constantly on the mike giving shout-outs and attempting to get the party on the dance floor by voice. Paul suggested we use DJ Paul DeJames, he said he was the best and there was an extra charge for him because he was that good. We were sold.

A week before the wedding we were a bit worried because we paid a deposit in 2009 for a 2010 wedding and never received any contact with the vendor. Email, voicemails were left and it took a few days to receive a response. The excuse for the delay is they are expanding and we were told we would get a call from our dj. Our DJ called and we met with him in person, we told him we wanted no rap music at all and our wedding guests were of an older generation and wanted no bubble gum pop. He told us to trust him and to send him a list of the music we wanted to play and not to play. Regrettably, we were lied to and our reception was mixed with rap, bubble gum pop and shout-outs. Not the sophisticated wedding we wanted or asked for.

Paul Anthony was so wonderful to work with. My husband and I visited several DJs and when we met Paul, we knew he was the one that we wanted for our wedding. He knows his music very well and I am certain that he can cater to any crowd. I had a short song list, he worked off of. He read the crowd to play additional songs he thought they would like to hear. My guests loved him and I must say he nailed the type of musical atmosphere that we were going for. I wish I had a soundtrack from our wedding. His mix was amazing. He had our guests (and us!) on the floor all night and was on the mic just enough to get the party going with an upbeat reception introduction, but not steal the spotlight. He put together an awesome photo montage for us (we just provided the pictures) and lit up our room with romantic uplighting. My guests also liked the live aspect of our percussionist provided by Paul. I am not certain, but I think James was also deejaying at the reception, which was great! I had two intelligent light stands, but I would recommend having all four. The intelligent lights and uplighting added more detail to our photographs, which came out beautifully (thanks to John Arcara!). I definitely would recommend Paul Anthony and I am completely happy with our decision. The only negative thing I might say is that it was difficult to get in touch with him at first (maybe because it was the Holiday season) but the closer the wedding got, he was always available to contact and discuss our music with. He's a very cool, professional and musically well rounded guy.

We LOVE James from Paul Anthony Entertainment. My husband is a friend of Paul (the owner) and we were hoping that Paul would be able to DJ our wedding. However, Paul was already booked, so suggested we use James instead. James went ABOVE and BEYOND in EVERY way!!! WE LOVE LOVE LOVE James SO much!! When we met with him he was personable, down to Earth, and extremely creative and energetic! I knew that he would do a fabulous job and I was right! James did more than we could have ever imagined to make our wedding absolutely perfect!! His song suggestions were fantastic and he had our guests on the dance floor the entire night! There was never a dull moment!!! James, we LOVE you and can't THANK YOU enough!!! XOXOXOXO

We used DJ James for our wedding and he was outstanding! We originally met with Paul, the owner, but he was booked the day of my wedding. So he suggested James given the vibe we were going for. My husband and I met with James a few months before and went over the playlist. He was very accommodating and professional. The day of he was there early and came down to greet me and the bridal party at the cocktail hour. The music was great! He played a nice mix of oldies and Top 40. It was exactly what we wanted! A+!

Paul Anthony is the best DJ everrrrr! I am the third bride in my family to use him, and every wedding has been exceptional. All of the guests at the wedding could not stop talking about how fun the wedding was. The whole entire night was full of dancing. The ONLY time we sat down was to eat, and you could barely finish your meal before you wanted to get up and dance again. He is a very fun guy, and I totally recommend him to everyone!

DJ Paul Anthony is amazing. He was able to get our wedding pumped and dancing the whole night without the cheezy hats and giveaways... Everyone said it was the best wedding they ever went to and the DJ was amazing. He played all the right songs at the right time. He is worth every penny he charges.

Also, highly recommend doing the plasma TV's with photo montage...all my guests rave at how great that was and unique... We had the photo montage right before they introduced us as husband & wife for first time.

Just such a great party and wonderful DJ.

WHAT A GREAT DJ! We absolutely LOVED Paul Anthony! He definitely MADE our wedding! He was the perfect DJ. Played all types of music.

What a great time, our guests loved him and we could not have been happier to have him as our DJ!
