You would have to be living under a rock not to have heard of Pauly D.
Born in Providence, R.I., Paul “DJ Pauly” DelVecchio is recognized for his musical talent as well as his reality star status on MTV’s highest rated show, “Jersey Shore” which premiered in December 2009. Quickly a fan favorite, MTV announced Pauly as the first cast member to receive his own spinoff “The Pauly D Project”, which chronicles his life as a celebrity DJ.
Its been a meteoritic raise to fame, in 2010, he released his first single with Universal Republic Records entitled, “Beat Dat Beat”, which quickly climbed the charts, further establishing his place in pop culture. On August 7, 2011 Pauly won “Choice TV: Male Reality/Variety Star” at the Teen Choice Awards after being nominated for the second year in a row. This powerhouse DJ has been honored as one of US Weekly’s hottest bodies and came in close second to Vin Diesel in People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive On Facebook” contest. Cosmopolitan Magazine chose him to launch their first iPad application.
In December 2011, rapper and mogul 50 Cent signed Pauly to his record label, G-Note records, to release new material showcasing Pauly’s true craft. It was also announced in January 2012, Pauly will be working together with 50 Cent and SMS Audio to develop a full line of headphones. Pauly has also spent the past year working on a Miracle Whip commercial, his own mobile application with MEDL Mobile, an exclusive line of Tanning Lotions and Sunless Products with Devoted Creations and a partnership in the Dirty Couture clothing line. However beyond the reality shows, GTL’s and Fist Pumps, its music and Djing that have taken first place in Pauly’s life. Having spent years honing his skills to fine art, his eclectic track selection, unique style and infectious personality captivate crowds around the globe.
Pauly is now one of the most sought after DJs in the world – having been voted the #8 Best DJ in America in 2010 and was nominated again in 2011. Pauly was also named one of VIBE Magazine’s “Top 6 DJs Who Rocked 2011”. But his notoriety did not come overnight. At the age of 16, long before his “Jersey Shore” fame, Pauly started as a DJ and that is where his passion remains. His music library spans nearly every genre of club music and he has the exceptional ability to mix in and out of top 40 and house music, introducing an entirely new demographic to quality dance music. In Summer 2011, Pauly joined the iconic Britney Spears on select dates of her Femme Fatale Tour, alongside Britney and Nicki Minaj. While in September 2011 he DJ’ed for the iHeartRadio Music Festival alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry. Acts included: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, The Black Eyed Peas, and Alicia Keys, to name a few. It was only a matter of time till Pauly migrated to the new dance music meca that is Las Vegas, with The Palms Casino Resort announcing that he will be an exclusive resident DJ for Moon, Rain, and the Palms Pool solidifying his spot amongst the elite group of artists that have had residencies with the Palms. His reputation as a major force in dance music and EDM was further boasted when in August 2012, Pauly ranked No. 7 spot on FORBES’ first-ever top- earning DJs list pulling in cool $11 Million. But music will always be Pauly’s first love, last year alone he rocked 132 shows world wide – and an impressive feat which equals a show every 3 days.
A firm believer in paying it forward, Pauly also supports many charitable causes, working closely with The Rhode Island Chapter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and has worked with many great organizations such as The Boomer Esiason Foundation, Make-A- Wish Foundation, GLAAD, GLSEN, an DoSomething.org.
