Paul Del Vecchio, better known as Pauly D, was born July 5, 1980 in Providence, Rhode Island. He started spinning, learning the art of DJing at sixteen years old, and by the age of eighteen, he was a full-on professional. He worked as many gigs, parties, and events at local clubs and private parties as he could to gain experience and recognition.
In 2007, Pauly partnered with another DJ friend to launch VIP-PROV, a marketing street team that worked in conjunction with local clubs and hot spots. It was while he was promoting his DJ career that he caught the attention of MTV producers and got recruited for “Jersey Shore” in 2009.
While on “Jersey Shore”, Pauly became a household name across the United States for his blown-out hair, his muscles, and his tanning bed. Ever the promoter, Pauly rode the fame he got from “Jersey Shore” to further his real dream, to become a world-famous DJ. In 2010, he released his single “Beat da Beat”, which got him nominated for the “America’s Best DJ” competition in both 2010 and 2011.
Since then, he’s kept working, networking, and promoting. He opened for Britney Spears in select cities on her Femme Fatale tour. He was the social media ambassador for the WWE Raw SummerSlam, and he’s been working on his first full-length solo album. Pauly D isn’t just a kid from the Jersey Shore with a taste for Jagerbombs; he’s a talented DJ, and he’s determined to stay on top.
Look for Pauly D to keep touring, producing, and promoting in the coming years. His album comes out this year.
