Speaking of entertainment, wedding music has the very unique requirement of entertaining a crowd from ages eight to 80. I have an extensive mental knowledge of music and the ability to seamlessly mix music from all these genres and periods to get the crowd moving.  When you choose Paris Creative we’ll go over all the critical songs you want to hear and on your wedding day I will weave those songs into a live mix that your wedding guests are sure to dance to! My job is to read the crowd while keeping your preferences front and center.

About DJ Lou Paris

You dream big dreams when you are a kid, about being an astronaut, being a firefighter, being president. Now that I am an adult I reminisce back to those days and the most vivid recollections all seemingly revolve around music. Listening to Sir Duke by Stevie Wonder on my father’s AM radio in his Chevy Malibu brought back happy times of driving to Arthur Treacher’s to get a Crunch Dog. Opening up Prince’s 1999 double-LP and dropping the needle on it for the first time burnt that memory into my subconscious. I can remember everything about that very moment.

I knew at a very young age that music would play a large role in my life. I played the hell out of those and other records. You name it, I was listening to it. The Sugarhill Gang when rap debut on the scene, Michael Jackson’s Thriller is as timeless as ever, Nirvana’s Nevermind, and the list goes on and on. Now of course records have been replaced by digital downloads, and while I may not stare at the inside liner notes of an LP like I used to, I still yearn to experience music, be it old or new.

Finding the next song to play.

So how did I get into DJing? Well I started my career helping my friend out DJing school dances circa 88-89 in Northern NY.  From there I went to college at SUNY Canton where I DJed parties and had a time slot at the college radio station. I worked with outfits in Northern NY to provide mobile DJ services to a number of events and when I moved to the Washington DC area I picked up gigs at the most popular clubs like DC Live and The Ritz. From there I started to work for “multi-op” mobile DJ operations from time to time, working mostly weddings and corporate events.

And then I took a pause from DJing for a bit.

But that passion for playing and discovering music never died. The desire to entertain a crowd with the best music and seamless transitions continued to nudge me. Finally I decided to start my own mobile DJ business when my family moved back to the beautiful Hudson Valley, and in late 2012 Paris Creative was born.

Beautiful Sunset at the Tuxedo Club. How can I not enjoy this kind of scenery. 

It’s this passion and desire that I bring to your event. Having a vast knowledge and connection to mixes that play and not just simply pressing play and forgetting about it. The experience of working numerous wedding crowds and club crowds to understand what they want to hear and dance to, knowing that songs from totally different genres and years can seamlessly intertwine with each other. Looking at the faces of people when you play their favorite song.

It’s that feeling that drives me.
