For Paul Helms, being a disc jockey is much more than a hobby. The St. Louis native has been honing his craft since 1989 when he began working as a professional deejay.
“We have an advantage over other companies,” Helms said. “We’ve performed at weddings all over the nation. We don’t do cookie-cutter receptions. We help create a great experience, not just for the couple, but for everyone there that night.”
DJPauly Entertainment, owned and operated by Helms and based in Salt Lake, provided their services at the QSaltLake wedding reception. But Helms is no stranger to being involved in the gay community and he often performs at gay weddings and ceremonies.
“We’re part of the community,” Helms said. “We work with our clients to provide an atmosphere that’s fun, elegant and comfortable for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation. We don’t tell cheesy jokes or make people wear silly hats and do the YMCA. Our motto is One Day, One Party, One Dream-Come-True.”
Although his main focus is on weddings, Helms also provides music and entertainment for company parties, birthdays and other special events along the Wasatch Front. He is a member of the American Disc Jockey Association and a frequent guest at the Mobile Beat DJ convention in Las Vegas. He moved to Salt Lake City in 1998 and continues to provide entertainment at events all over the United States.
“Because Utah is such a beautiful state, we get a lot of calls for destination weddings,” Helms said. “And our clients appreciate that they can customize the music, announcements and introductions to their taste. We help create a fun, interactive wedding experience that their family and friends will never forget.”
