Myself and my husband are wedding photographers. We have had the pleasure of shooting a few weddings where Paul has been the DJ. These weddings have been amazing!!!! Paul gets the people you do not expect to see up dancing and going wild doing exactly that hahahahaha. I think the secret is that Paul (DJ PTK) truly loves all the genres of music he plays and has a passion for making people have a good time. The weddings we have done together have all been very unique as they included a Country Theme, a Traditional and a 80's theme wedding............. Paul adapted to all of these flawlessly by being prepared for whatever requests were going to be thrown his way. We look forward to doing many more events in the future with DJ PTK.Heather & Nick Grove Breakwater Photography
We brought Paul is an experiment for a VIP customer experience event at Best Buy Langford. The experiment now will be a regular thing I'm glad to say!!! Paul had a perfect mix of the top-40 style music people wanted to hear but also took requests for fun. The requests idea was a total hit as the little ones in attendance bombarded him with Disney movie requests and he was up to the task, and when some of the older clients fired requests for Dean Martin his way he responded with "Which Dean Martin classic are you wishing to hear? I have them all". True professional and was a pleasure to have on site.Peyman Etemadi Best Buy Langford
Paul is a blast to work with!!! I have shot a few weddings with Paul and always am happy to see we are going to be doing joint events. I am yet to stump this guy on a request!!! He has a great setup and seems to always be adding to his equipment to accommodate requests from clients. His lights and lasers are always fun and the talk at weddings. I look forward to years of working with Paul at future weddings and events.Natasha Knight Photos by Tash
Paul is a regular contributor to our charity events and has now come on board as our DJ of choice. We hold mixers and fundraising events for local charities, these get together style events always require music to set the atmosphere and DJ PTK is the man for the job. This year he is also providing the music for our major fundraiser event "The Quay Classic Golf Tournament". Paul's musical knowledge is second to none and he always picks the right song for the right moment which is a true talent.Philip Bisset-Covaneiro YES Victoria - Investors Group Victoria
We used DJ PTK (Paul) for our summer of 2017 wedding and we are sure glad we did. There were so many dropped balls in regards to last minute mis-haps, Paul went above and beyonf to fix other peoples mistakes regarding everything from using his contacts to get us hotel deals to accomodate out of town guests that our hotel didn't have room for to getting us a photogapher last minute as ours went down with mono!!! ......... "And" he was amazing at our reception playing the perfect mix that kept both our wedding party dancing with country music we requested all the way to some older Rat Pack / 50s-60s music to keep my parents and grandparents happy!!! Highly recommend Paul!!!Jenn & Shawn Kemp : Metchosin Hall June 2018
We used Paul for our Summer wedding an Arbutus Ridge Golf and Country Club. So much stress off our hands as we were having our wedding close to our family but both my husband and I live out of BC. Paul handled all our ceremony music with a great wireless setup that he had, then played a great vibe background music for our dinner. We were so impressed with the range of music he played as it went from Old School Disney songs for the little ones on hand to dance to, then into the special requests we had for our special dances and great throwbacks that had everyone on the dancefloor. We had booked Paul till 11:30pm...........no questions asked he stayed until 1AM!!!! Very happy we chose DJ PTK!!!Pam Kothlow : Arbutus Ridge Golf & Country Club July 2017
Paul was heavily recomended to us by a few friends. After chatting with him on the phone we knew he was the guy for the job. Our wedding was at Merridale Cider in Cobble Hill summer of 2017. Before Paul was even supposed to be on hand we had a dropped ball to fix, our Photographer Tasha is a good friend of Paul and got him on the phone right away. Despite not being needed till 5pm Paul was already in Mill Bay at 3pm and rushed up to assist with the issue, which was a sound issue for our ceremony with the venue provided equipment. Paul took charge with the venue rep, dialed into their system and handled the music for our ceremony, walk downs, mingle music and closing walkouts...SOMETHING HE WASN'T EVEN BOOKED TO DO!!! Awesome service to turn a brides frown upside down. The reception was perfect with the crowd being heavily into 90's style music and Paul was up to the task. After the guests had left my husband and myself got time to sit back and chat with Paul, turns out we had many mutual friends and interests and have grown into good friends since. If you are getting married.........this is the weddin DJ you want!!!!Melanie & Jevan Deigh : Merridale Cidery August 2017
We booked Paul for our Christmas Event, best decision we made for the event!!! Paul had an amazing library of music, we tried to stump him but it couldn't be done. We even ended out playing this game he suggested where we had to guess the TV show from the theme music he played....HE HAD LIKE 100 THEME SONGS!!! It was a real hit. He played a great mix of top 40 music blended in with our era (90's) and had really fun lights and lasers. Will be booking him for next years Summer fundraiser event and of course our yearly Christmas Event!!!Mint Hair Design - Duncan B.C.
Myself and my husband highly recommend Paul. Our daughter wanted a "MTV Dance Party" theme for her birthday, something we asked Paul if he could re-create for us. Paul brought an array of cool effects including bubble and smoke machines, laser lighting effects and lots of really impressive lights on fixtures. We secretly asked Kasey's friends what her favorite songs were and Paul made sure he had them all at the touch of button, and mixed them in fun ways, the girls had made up dances to certain songs over the years and it was as much fun for the parents to watch their friendships take stage, we had more fun then the kids. What was really neet was that after the dance party was over, one of our mutual friends in attendance knew Paul and convinced Paul to hang out and play some 70's/80's songs we all loved, he kept this up for another 2 hours and joined us for a BBQ and drinks. In the future we will always have Paul on speed dial as the party was over the top because of him.Denise & Hank Walter
"We had Paul DJ our wedding this summer at Luxton Hall and our recpetion was so much fun!!! We had a crowd full of people who like to move and we had a hard time getting off the dance floor. Every song was a hit, he really knows how to get people in the mood to party. His personality was very laid back and personable, I was very impressed with the interactions he had with everyone he spoke with. It was an amazing day and a epic night of dancing. The best thing to hear from your guests after everything is over is how much fun they had at your wedding. I can't thank him enough for being a huge part of that! I highly recommend using DJ PTK (Paul) for any event."

We had DJ PTK DJ our wedding in October of 2017. The venue was the Four Points Sheraton in West Shore. It was a great stress relief to have all of our significant dances, equipment for speeches and recpetion all covered by one person. The dance floor was packed all night. Different decades of music were mixed in to appease all guests which was amazing. The brides maids and some guests set up a special dance with the DJ unbeknownst to me which made for an amazing memory with great friends. The lights and effects on the dance floor gave a real party vibe. We highly recommend Paul to Brides as his services were proffesional, the prices were affordable and he takes un-needed stress off you for your "Big Day"

Happy to be writing this review!!! At first we were planning to elope and avoid the chaos ..... but didn't want to miss the party portion of the wedding experience. Paul came to our site and provided the ceremony music with a portable sytem that was battery powered as there was no accessible power outlets which was a huge help as the wedding spot was secluded and sentimental to us. The reception "Party Portion of the tonights entertainment" as we refer to it hahaha, was above and beyond. Bubble machine, Fog for 80's ballads we requested, party cannons that popped off at last call was an amazing hit. The dance floor was the place to be all night. Thank you so much again Paul for everything you did and making it work with our budget.Crystal & Aaron Williams : Private Residence Rustic July 2018
We had Paul (DJ PTK) DJ & take on some MC roles for our wedding this July at Bear Mountain. He was super easy to book and communicate with. He set up everything himself which made the day super stress free.He had all the best speaker and sound necessities, we felt super comfortbale leaving the ceremony, cocktail hour, and recpetion music all up to him. Paul even had all the cool lights and effects for the recpetion which made for a really fun party environment. We left all the playlists up to Paul aside from our few assigned dance songs and he did a fantastci job gauging the crowd! He even had our grandparents out tearing up the dance floor. He kept the party going with the classics and dance-alongs for all ages. Would highly recommend having Paul at any event!!!

I just wanted to give a shout out to DJ PTK!!! I had Paul as our DJ/MC for our July 2018 wedding at the Cordova Bay Beach House and he did an amazing job covering the ceremony on the beach, dinner music and reception. He had every song we requested, making sure he even had the perfect versions and played them in the order requested. He took the time to meet with us and go over everything, and gave me better song ideas then what we had originally thought of. He had a great set-up that looked awesome at our venue. We had a few different styles of guests as it pertains to musical tastes but Paul managed to play the right mix to appease everyone. He went over the top and was my MC as well for the nights events which saved me a lot of stress trying to get a guest to take the duty.
Thank you for making our wedding night a blast!!!! Highly recommend to any brides looking for complete wedding day service at great value.Lorelei & Anthony Fisher July 2018 Beach House
Paul!!! You are the man!!! We so appreciate you coming out and being such a big part of our special day. You are reliable, outgoing, easy to talk to and an all around great guy! I want to thank you for helping me choose my songs when I was so indecisive. Your patience was so appreciated. I would also like to thank you for always making yourself available to answer questions and concerns quickly, and how you always got back to me and followed up to ensure all was ok. Solely, for the fact that you called me back from your family vacation in Mexico showed me that you go above and beyond for your clients, hiring you to DJ our wedding was the best decision ever. Thanks again!!!Ross & Miranda Mackay : Merridale Cidery August 2018
We hired DJ PTK (Paul) as our wedding DJ for August 25th at the Victoria Golf Club. We were absolutley over the moon with our decision. He was excellent at assisting us with our significant dance choices, we actually went with many of suggestions. He had the perfect choice for our first dance song, as well as our recpetion grand entrance song which brought the roof down and set the tone for the night!!! He was easy to talk to, personable and perfectly priced and his sense of humor had us laughing all day to break some of the stresses. "Shes a 10 buddy!!!" He seemed to play the perfect songs at the right moment, from the groomsmen seranading to Backstreet Boys all the way to the group sing a long of the Grease Megamix. Think I even heard the Time Warp in there for the "experienced guests" hahahaha. Would highly recommend hiring DJ PTK for your event....HE'S THE BEST!!!Chris & Emilie Calder - Victoria Golf And Country Club August 2018
I want to take a minute to shout out Paul Scotthorne. DJ PTK truly was amazing. From making the precise timing for music in our ceremony work, to reading the room of our reception and making sure "all" people were dancing.
There were moments created thanks to DJ PTK that will be cherished by our family forever. He was very resonably priced, and more then amazing in every way. I want to stress that the brides needs are his number 1 priority. Soooooo Great!!! So Wonderful!!!
Everyone should use DJ PTK for their weddings!!!
Thank you Bud!!!Mike & Zoe Carpenter - Royal Victoria Yacht Club Sept 2018
Just wanted to give a shout out to Paul (DJ PTK) for being an AWESOME DJ!!! He kept our guests dancing until they literally had to turn the lights on!!! Not to mention he came to our rescue when our DJ that we had originally booked bailed on us 3 Weeks before the wedding, despite him and his family leaving for a holiday 36 hours after our wedding. He was so easy to work with and so much fun and all at an affordable price!!! Color matched his light setup to match out wedding colors as well which was amazing. We couldn't have been happier. Our guests are still talking about how much of a great job he did playing a vast array of music to apeal to all guests. Thanks DJ PTKGregory & Patrice Sklarchuk - The Prestige , Sooke B.C.
Thank you DJ PTK!!! Paul was our DJ for our wedding on October 6th. We are so happy with how are night turned out, we wanted to have a fun time dancing and keeping all of our guests on the dance floor and WE SURE GOT IT! Prices were easily affordable and Paul kept it within our budget without sacrificing any of our requests. Paul was definitely worth it: with the high end equipment and awesome colored lighting to match our decor and wedding colors. We would highly recommend DJ PTK for any wedding or event!!!
Tanya & Scott Thomlison - Olympic View Golf October 2018
Paul put on a great dance party for our wedding. The sound was amazing and the lighting was really cool how he matched up to our wedding colors. Dance floor was packed the whole night and he played the exact kind of upbeat music we wanted. He was great to work with and personable, he even came down in advance to meet me at our unique venue and went above and beyond creating a special "mash-up" for our first dance as we wanted a unique suprise to kick the night off. Price was very reasonable compared to the other rates you'll find in this town. Highly recommend DJ PTK to anyone who wants an awesome experience....Thanks Man!!!Arielle & Jeff Barber - The Mint October 2018
We had Paul do our Christmas staff event at the Galeon Room at Juan De Fuca rec centre. The pricing was very reasonable and getting in contact was simple as Paul was accomodating to arrnage phonecalls and set up payment with our Store Manager. Paul was very personable and he made making sure the guests enjoyed themselves his number one priority. The music mix was great! The sound was amazing, and we are going to have even more of the lighting and effects he provides for next years Spring Fling and Christmas events as we will be re-booking for sure. I cannot say enough how impressed I was with the show, I have already recommended DJ PTK to several people. Thank you for everything Paul!!!Thrifty Foods Hillside Collen Guiney December 2018
Paul (DJ PTK) DJ'd our private VIP event for our clients at the Gardens of HCP this past Christmas and he was brilliant. The retro mic he brought was really cool as we used it for hyping up the crowd for the upcoming year so it put a neat spin on the announcments holding that thing hahaha. The guests have raved about the DJ and the mix of music and we have dropped his name and information many times since the event and we look forward to having Paul on speed dial for any future events that we throw. For what you get, the services provided and the ambiance and atmosphere he sets this guy really really needs to charge more as we expected to be paying alot more for what we got. Thanks again Paul!!!Barter Pay - Young Entrepreneurs Society Gardens at HCP December 2018
We were reffered to Paul by a friend who said "this guy will make your vision into reality" as we were looking for someone who could make our "Christmas Theme Wedding" above and and beyond our expectations. Myself and Marcus are glad to be writing this review as we can say "HE BLEW OUR EXPECTATIONS TO SMITHEREENS!!!". A great mix of the top 40 and standard weddings songs mixed in with some Christmas favorites and some cool versions of traditional Christmas songs done by people we didn't even know re-did them. He had his lighting done a "Tiffany blue crossed with Royal Blue" which made is the "Frozen Movie" look for the dance floor which the kidfs enjoyed and he eeven did a 30 minute portion of kids songs just for them which was really cool. The overall rating was a A+ as he even MC'd most of the evening for us as our planned MC was having "speaking in front of others" issue, we will say hahaha. He fit well into our budget and was worth every penny and we 100% would send anyone getting married or having a party Paul's way. Thanks DJ PTK.............and thanks for humoring us with some of our crazy requests .Hilary & Marcus Wilson - Glenora Hall December 2018
DJ PTK was very responsive to messages and was willing to work with our budget and timing expectations as we developed our large event. He created a great mix that energized our corporate event and even coordinated his lighting and DJ booth to the colour scheme of our event!!! Highly Recommend Paul to anyone looking for a DJ for their event.Chelsea - "Remix!" Event for BC Government - Crystal Gardens Feb 2019
We loved working with Paul, The pricing was great as we locked in the "Early bird" rate which was a fantastic value as it included the ceremony and reception at diffferent sites which was an extreme value as well as the quality of work. Paul was very personable and approachable to our ideas without being afraid to give us his expert advice when we had no clue. Also, we met with several DJ's at wedding shows, and the interactions were often awkward and a bit uncomfortable where as working with Paul since day one had us at ease immediatley. On the actual day Paul collaborated very weel with our MC and other vendors which took alot of stress off of us, even taking charge on the entrance of the bridal party and working timelines with our MC. The music choices were awesome, he read the crowd so well and had the venue bumpin' all night (we have had lots of comments about our DJ). Sound and lighting setup was exactly what we were looking for, the sound system at the ceremony was fantastic and clear without being overbearing.
We loved that Paul played music to go with every moment our the evening, often improvising as situaions arose and during transitions. This et the mood and had our guests entertained and engaged all night.
If we every need a DJ or are asked for who we recommend we will always say DJ PTK. Thank you again.
