DJ Paul started out as a resident DJ while working at military bases in Germany and the south of England before moving to Telford in 2004. After a couple of years break he resumed working as a DJ where he soon built up a regular client base with residential bookings in a number of local pubs, performing weekend karaoke discos as well as private parties.
Looking for more variety in his work as a DJ, Paul branched out and has steadily polished his performance and repertoire for just about any event which you can name. He has performed for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and retirement parties, as well as Christmas and New Years Eve parties and corporate social events all over the area, including a few prestigious Gala Dinners at the Telford International Center and other "Black Tie" events. He also regularly provides local and national charities with support for their various fundraising efforts hosting not only discos but also video horse racing & musical bingo nights.
Old School Entertainment is a real family business now and Paul works with his son & daughter, Jamie & Jenn. The rapport they have together on stage is often commented on, adding a touch of humour to the night's proceedings.... As Jenn likes to say when introducing us "He's the 'Old' in Old School Entertainment & I'm mildly entertaining". Although he does help out behind the decks, Jamie focuses more on the "front of house" where he provides event photography & manages our photo-booth operation.
Our equipment consists of a sound system big enough to handle most venues and a laser/LED light show to match - All of it regularly inspected and tested. Depending on the size of your venue, we can customise our set up to give the best sound quality and bathe the dancefloor in bright, vibrant lights, as well as using a variety of uplighting effects to provide the perfect ambience or to match any specific colour scheme you have chosen.
We will always add that extra element to help turn a good night into a great night and with over 30,000 songs from the 50s & 60s through
to today's club classics and chart toppers to chose from and a karaoke library of over 10,000 songs it's safe to say we have something for everyone.
From Abba to ZZ Top and from Blues to Urban Trance if you want it, we've got it! In the unlikely event that you happen to choose THAT song and I do not have it, I can usually source it within a few days
To us there is no such thing as a routine party. Every single one is unique and every client is special. You are guarenteed a personal consultation and event planning advice from the moment you book until the music fades away and the lights dim at the end of your event. Using an online portal with individual logins for each client and event you can select as much, or as little, of the music that YOU want to hear. The personal touch starts even before you confirm any booking as you will receive a full, written, no obligation quote once you have had an intitial contact from us and described what you want from your DJ.
