    aul started his Disc-jockey career at 13 years of age when he would D.J. his elementary school teen dances at Ledbury Park Public School in North York.

    At 16 Paul started operating his own teen dances in North York bringing in live entertainment and providing D.J. services between sets.

    One of the bands that performed was called the "Lords of London".  As time went on Paul became very involved with the band traveling around Ontario as they produced a number of hits that would make it to the top 10.  The hit "Cornflakes & Ice Cream" made it to # 1.

    Paul was one of the first entrepreneur's to rent the Toronto Ferry Boat "Sam McBride" and operate a dance on the boat called "Let's Rock the Boat" with two live Toronto bands performing on the boat. The Lords of London and Mandela. "Let's Rock the Boat" was a big success despite the problems we had trying to convert the boats power to accommodate the band's equipment.  Now there are numerous boats on Lake Ontario that do the same thing. 

    In his mid twenties Paul would then get into the retail record business, owning & operating three stores called "The Wonderful World of Music".  The stores were located in Aurora, Sutton and Lindsay Ontario.

    In 1975 Paul graduated from the "National Institute of Broadcasters".

     

    While operating the stores Paul continued his D.J. business and was very instrumental in working with promoters in bringing live concerts to the Aurora Arena, one of those bands being the Toronto rock sensation "Triumph".

     

    We are continually upgrading ourselves by attending DJ Conventions and conferences throughout the United States and Canada.

     

    In the picture on the right Paul is playing the wash board in a performance by Mike from Nashville who was named Entertainer of the Year by the Mid-America DJ Association.

     

    In January 2007 Paul attended the WEDJ Cruise and DJ Conference.

     

    Paul continues to D.J. today and has produced an Access based Music Management System to make it easier for D.J.'s to organize their libraries & find music.

     

    We have also produced an Electronic Wedding Planner
    to make it easier for the bridal party to stay organized.
