Get to the know the DJ for the Seattle Storm, Kraken

“DJ Trunks” has been heating up crowds at packed Seattle sporting events for a year. Paul Cranford shares what he liked best and how fans are interacting.

SEATTLE — Mixing and mixing songs at some of Seattle’s biggest sports games all year round has just flown by for Paul Cranford — better known as DJ Trunks.

Cranford, originally from Atlanta, has been a professional DJ for eight years.

A little over a year ago, Cranford relocated to Seattle from Las Vegas to take on the unique task of DJing live to thousands of fans at Seattle Storm, Seattle Kraken and Seattle Seawolves games.

“It was incredible,” said Cranford. “It was a real whirlwind. The fans in Seattle are top notch. It’s so much fun, I love it.”

Cranford said the energy at the Climate Pledge Arena has been great over the past year. He said the new arena is likely part of what got Storm and Kraken fans so excited to attend the games last season. It was also the inaugural season for the Kraken.

“That [fans] are already hyped,” Cranford said of the energy from the fans when they arrived. “People are always excited. People are dancing, having fun.”

When it comes to the Seawolves, Cranford gets the crowd in high spirits at Starfire Stadium in Tukwila.

Cranford said he loves it when fans make live song requests during games. Fans send song requests for him Twitter or Instagram @trunksthedj.

Cranford said his job is to get the crowd pumping and to do that he has to “pick the right songs for the right moments” at every game.

The Seattle Storm are en route to take on the Aces in Las Vegas, but the team will return to the Climate Pledge Arena on Sunday, September 4 to continue their playoff run. Tipoff for the September 4th game is at 12pm. Get to the know the DJ for the Seattle Storm, Kraken
