Full Description
Hi, I'm Paddy (The P part of MPG Entertainments). Music has been in my life since birth, I was shown the ropes at a young age by my father (Mark, the M part of MPG Entertainments). I can accommodate any music taste including Ceilidh, I use one of the best sound & lighting setups in the country (this is not your typical DJ setup) & can mix records together seamlessly meaning no stopping in between tracks! My massive musical knowledge allows me to cater for any crowd from 18ths to 80ths, Baby Showers to Weddings and 90s Raves to High-End Corporate Charity Fundraisers. I am a classically trained musician who has played at venues and festivals all over the country with some top acts including Nicholas McDonald, Luke Friend (X Factor) and Edward Reid (Britain’s Got Talent). As a musician, mixing records comes as a second nature meaning the blending of music throughout your event will be seamless, no awkward pauses between songs! I'm also trained & qualified as a Sound Engineer so can deal with any technical issues that may creep up during an event and can work alongside other acts such as bands or singers. You can rest assured that your event will run smoothly when I'm at the helm. I am more than comfortable speaking on a microphone ensuring all your guests will understand what's being said. Although I am up for having some light-hearted fun, I will only use the microphone when appropriate, no offensive/cheesy jokes, swearing etc

You'll be blown away! We certainly were.
DJ Paddy of MPG Entertainments is absolutely amazing. He was so professional in the months leading up to the wedding, letting us tailor our playlist to EXACTLY what we wanted. DJ Paddy was also extremely good at reading the room. We had a list of songs requests, but he had a great intuitive sense of when to play each song, and how to keep people entertained on the dance floor. The lighting he provided also looked spectacular. It completely transformed our venue; it gave us spotlight when necessary, and added great special effects to some of the ultimate wedding-crowd-pleaser songs. Because of DJ Paddy, we had people on the dance floor ALL NIGHT. It was incredible. I would 100% recommend MPG Entertainments/DJ Paddy to any bride/groom looking for a DJ in the Edinburgh/Glasgow area. I promise you, you'll be blown away! We certainly were. 🙂

He coped with several changes we wanted
We asked Paddy to be our wedding DJ and he went above & beyond that role. He sorted outside pa & music for the ceremony & everything from lights to all tech detail & equipment for our bands too, he coped with several changes we wanted (right up to last minute), nothing was a problem for him, he took all the stress of that away from us and kept the night flowing from start to finish. His DJ set was fantastic and the dance floor was full throughout! My wife & I can’t recommend him highly enough - he’s a genius! THANK YOU PADDY we loved it 💚

If you don’t book Paddy, why even have a wedding?
Paddy is the best DJ of all time. We’re from NYC but got married in Edinburgh, Our venue (Carlowrie Castle) recommended him and we’re so glad they did! We were a bit nervous all around because our wedding was more American style than a typical Scottish wedding but he caught on to the order of everything, read the crowd throughout the night and played an amazing set. His lighting is also amazing. All of our guests were wowed and said they’ve never been to a wedding with lighting like that. He did everything we asked (including hanging disco balls from the ceiling of our marquee). If you don’t book Paddy why even have a wedding.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

A couple flew over 120+ guests from New York to get married on the hottest day of the year in a blacked-out Marquee. I don't know what it was about it but there was certainly a buzz in the air, the stars were aligned and nothing was going to stop this Wedding being an absolute belter! It was emotional, exciting and most importantly for me, the dancefloor was jam-packed for the whole night!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Light-hearted, On-the-ball, Mindful, Meticulous, Uncompromising

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that it's growing year on year (with 2020 being the obvious exception)

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

When choosing a venue, ask them if there's any noise restrictions including complaints from neighbours. Ask about their typical turnaround time between the meal and first dance.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I was once working a Wedding alongside a band (I supplied the PA & was running their sound). All of a sudden they stop and ask the Groom to take to the stage. The groom then asked the Bride to head to the dancefloor, to which he sang an amazing version of Better Man by Paolo Nutini (with the band backing him). It was a total surprise for everyone except the band, groom and myself (we had a quick rehearsal that morning before the ceremony) and it went down an absolute storm!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Couple Enquire. We arrange a meeting (or phonecall) to go through what I do. If they're happy then I send out a booking fee invoice, booking form & contract. Once booking is confirmed we fill in more details as we get closer to the big day.

What makes a romantic first dance?

Making it as intimate as possible

What is your number one floor-filler?

The obvious answer would be Tina Turner - Proud Mary. Fills a floor at 95% of Weddings.
