Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio is recognized for his musical talent as well as his reality star status on MTV's highest-rated show, Jersey Shore. Pauly received more recognition being voted the #8 Best DJ in America in 2010 and was nominated again in 2011. He 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. He has 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. 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. Pauly continues to tour the world DJing while holding down a Vegas residency.
