Our story begins with our bride, Magaly, when she attended the wedding of Carlo and Jonalyn Pistritto on Jan 15 at the Ballroom at the Ben. She liked the music mix so much, she and Kevin met with DJ Paul Evans and hired him for their celebration. Fast forward to June 17th, 2011 and we begin Magaly and Kevin’s reception at the Brigalias in Sicklerville, NJ.
During dinner Paul bgena the evening with some classic rocks songs from Rod Stewart and Billy Joel. But as soon as he put on some Bachata and Merengue, a Latin Dance party was underway, complete with Salsa and moving along into Latin themed club songs from artists like Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez. All line dances from the Cha Cha Slide to the Cupid Shuffle were well received and Paul remembers the crowd young and old really jamming to Rockin’ Robin by the Jackson 5.
A guest requested a Spanish Line Dance that had a Country Western feel with Spanish Vocals. As you can see in the pictures and video below when this song came on everyone on the dance floor were twirling napkins like lassos. Right after that, DJ Paul Evans dropped in the “Mexican Hat Dance,” to continue the napkin twirling.
Magaly told Paul to put on a Conga for the ladies to circle around her and Kevin standing on chairs with Kevin holding her veil, when the song stopped, Paul was to drop in “All the Single Ladies,” and announce the throwing of the garter.
The night was a huge hit and in this particular instance exhibited DJ Paul Evans skill at fusing Latin and American Pop standards together to bring together a mix of people with different musical tastes onto the floor and keep them there!
Silver Sound DJs had another opportunity to rock the highly regarded Waterford Room at The Valley Forge Radisson in King of Prussia, PA. DJ Paul Evans is the voice behind the mix in the video as well as the force behind the beats moving everybody on the dance floor. The bride and groom, Kevin and Samantha, asked for an extensive list of songs that everyone would enjoy at a wedding reception. As you can see in the photos and video they really knew the musical taste of their guests. Notably, ‘Footloose’ drew a great response and went great with the retro sunglasses that were distributed. DJ Paul Evans kept everybody’s feet moving right up until the end of the evening where he closed with a confetti cannon showering over the crowd.
This past weekend Silver Sound DJ Paul Evans entertained at the Scanticon Valley Forge in King of Prussia, PA for Megan and Nathan. Paul and his assistant Will setup 10 lights along the window wells throughout the Grand Ballroom washing the walls in beautiful colors.
Megan and Nathan enjoyed a variety of country music, dance music, 80′s and more. Some of Nathan’s family even flew in from Germany for this special day. More notably, because his relatives learned some English just before their arrival, Nathan had agreed to yodel in front of all his guests at his wedding. DJ Paul Evans just happened to have a Bavarian yodel for Nathan to yodel along to. But perhaps the most outrageous part of the night was when Nathan took to the dance floor with his new wife and flamboyantly unveiled his custom tiger skin button down. At the end of the evening Nathan and three of his friends sang along together a song about friendship.

It’s interesting how Silver Sound DJ Paul Evans was selected for the wedding of Linda Libor and Tim Fair that took place on May 28th, 2011 at Seaview, a Dolce Resort. As it turns out, Lauren has her own wedding photography service, Lauren Libor Photography, and was shooting at a wedding where Paul Evans was the DJ! Having enjoyed their working relationship at the reception, talks between Lauren and Paul ensued about him entertaining at her wedding reception with the lucky man, Mr. Tim Fair who was Lauren’s second shooter that day.
If you watch the second video posted below you can watch the outdoor ceremony of Lauren and Tim and all the preparations that day leading up to it. This video was actually shot, edited, and presented on the ballroom wall all the same day! Guests watched this video during dinner thanks to the talent and hard work of Andrew and Gwenyth of Lightworks Films. The ceremony also featured a string quartet playing from the moment guests arrived til the recessional.
The first video posted below showcases DJ Paul Evans getting the dancefloor in motion with everything from the latest club hits to the classics that nobody can resist getting up for. You’ll find there isn’t a moment where you can’t find the bride getting down on the dancefloor with her friends and family throughout the entire video.
The reception ended with a dazzling sparkler lit sendoff for Lauren and Tim for them to begin their new lives together. Congratulations to Lauren and Tim and best of luck to Lauren with her rising photography business!
