Paul Granata DJ, Emcee
From a young age Paul showed an extreme passion and love for music. He completely immersed himself in all aspects of what music is. Whether it be the instrumentation, melody, production or personal interpretation, it all had a profound affect on him that he used to develop a keen ear and understanding of how powerful a song can be.
He taught himself to play guitar and dedicated himself so much to the instrument and music he would soon progress to writing and recording his own songs. At Northeastern University, he graduated with a major in Music Industry and also started an original band that played extensively throughout the Northeast. Soon after graduating, Paul and the band moved to Los Angeles where they continued to perform and record. During this time, he also spent 9 years working professionally in the music industry for Realsongs – Diane Warren Music Publishing.
At Realsongs some of the areas he worked in included licensing, copyright, song catalog management, as well as work in the recording studios.
Paul is very personable and easy to work with. He can make anyone feel comfortable and confident with him handling the music for their event. We feel his passion, experience, music knowledge, skills and DJ performance are very unique and special for any client that has the opportunity to work with him. Clients continuously rave about their experience working with Paul.
Testimonials Paul Granata
We could not be happier with our wedding DJ!! Paul was our DJ for the evening and from all of the pre-planning to the execution the night of, everything he did was seamless! We did calls prior to the wedding and he helped us talk through what types of dance music we were looking for, made sure he was aware of any specific songs or artist we didn’t like, and he even helped us pick processional songs for our bridesmaids that flowed nicely into the bridal processional. Our guests at the reception never left the dance floor! He read the crowd so well and knew exactly what to play next to keep the fun going. All of our guests have been raving about how much fun they had and how they hadn’t danced like that in a long time! Even our videographer told us he had never been to such a fun wedding before. We are so happy we chose C-Zone and would definitely recommend them for any event!
Ashley & Andrew // Wedding // Beverly, MA // October 2017
We were lucky to have Paul Granata from C-ZONE as our DJ for our wedding in September of 2017. From our first phone call with Paul until the end of the wedding we felt TOTALLY comfortable with him. Paul’s a great guy and made it very easy for us. He’s also extremely knowledgeable in all genres of music. It was a pleasure working with Paul and C-ZONE. If anyone is looking for a great DJ who will keep the dance floor packed I strongly suggest hiring Paul. Thanks again Paul and C-ZONE!!
Mike // Wedding // Salem, MA // September 2017
I’m still receiving gushing compliments about how AMAZING our wedding music was! My husband and I wanted a dance party feel. We love to dance and we wanted to feature music that compels you out of your chair and onto the dance floor. Paul Granata MADE THAT HAPPEN! We may have been a little high maintenance (sorry Paul!!) because we emailed him many many times throughout the process (asking for suggestions about everything… great dad/daughter mom/son dance songs, great dinner music, timing questions about speeches, etc. etc.) and Paul was above and beyond helpful and incredibly generous with his time and suggestions. He always responded quickly with incredible ideas and suggestions. He was an honest pleasure to work with. I’d hire him again in a heartbeat.
Lisa & Daniel // Wedding // Boston, MA // August 2017
DJ Paul and C-Zone entertainment made our wedding reception absolutely perfect!! DJ Paul was so easy to meet with and talk to in planning the music for our event. The C-Zone online music and event planning tools are such excellent features. DJ Paul struck an amazing balance of our short list of “must play” songs with his own creativity and experience with wedding events. I think that every wedding guest of our large event at all age ranges made it on to the dance floor for at least one song!! And the photo booth was such a great add-on feature that our guests really loved. The electronic system was great for guests to take home a physical or emailed copy of their photos, and we received digital and a “scrapbook” copy of all of the photos at the end of the night. I really can’t say enough about how happy we were with DJ Paul and C-Zone as a company, and would highly recommend C-Zone to any couple planning their New England wedding!
Tina & Brian // Wedding // Boston, MA // August 2017
We had Paul as our DJ from C-Zone and OMG he was incredible. Once we gave him a theme of music we liked, he immediately took our ideas to the next level and knew what songs we wanted before we even could say them. He was a crazy good DJ and mixed songs so well the song never actually stopped and my wedding was LIT. I checked this vendor our on Wedding Wire and here on the Knot and you will NOT be disappointed if you use this service. We had so many compliments on the music during our wedding and how fabulous it was to be dancing non-stop (and we had non-stop dancing until the very end!).
Stephanie & Dylan // Wedding // Sharon, MA // July 2017
We had Paul as our DJ for our wedding – he was honestly the BEST. Aside from being an all-star DJ at the wedding, I loved how excited he was when we spoke to him leading up to the event. He made us feel like we were the only wedding he was focused on, and helped us brainstorm some really great ideas. I can’t recommend Paul and C-Zone entertainment enough!!!
