I book and coordinate weddings for a living and I have seen DJ's and entertainers either make or break an event! I truly believe that entertainment/DJ should be at the top of your budget priority list when planning a wedding. There are some scary DJ's out there (believe me, I've witnessed it), and Chuck is not one of them! He does a fantastic job! He is professional and upbeat without being aggressive and overbearing, which is why I chose him to provide sound equipment and play the acoustic guitar for my wedding ceremony! As expected, he was amazing! My guests loved him! i will definitely recommend him to any bride/groom!

I am a bride from Georgia and Chuck was referred to me because I wanted Steel Drums during my ceremony and he is also a DJ for the reception. Everything was exceptional. He was so timely with all of our correspondence and very professional. He had everyone dancing throughout the entire night and I really, really enjoyed having him as our MC/DJ/Musician!! I would recommend him to anyone.

Outstanding! He was very personable and professional. We couldn't have had a better time at our wedding and reception if we had tried, We had Chuck perform a reggae "Canon in D" on the steel drums. Absolutely wonderful. If you're on the fence about having a conch shell blown to announce the bride, get off the fence and do it!!! It will be one of the most memorable moments of your wedding. Seriously ! Chuck is a one-man band. Not only did he play he most up to date hits at our after party, he also sang and played guitar adding many personal touches to make it even more special. Our guests all complimented on how fabulous the DJ was. At some point, everyone there had been up dancing. Be prepared for some sore feet. (-:
If you're looking for a One-Stop. Do-It-All DJ, ... stop looking. Be assured Chuck will take care of you. honestly.

Chuck Lawson was exactly what we were looking for in my daughters destination wedding. His alluring steel drum music during the ceremony and enchanting conch shell announcing the entrance of the bride added a unique flair that greatly impressed our guests. The live guitar and voice coupled with DJ service was executed with talent, experience, and expertise.

Chuck's quality of service and professionalism were over the top. The only draw back we had, was wanting the father of the groom to sing the song for the mother of the groom/groom dance as a surprise to her but contract stage rules did not allow it. He did allow us to pre- record the song to use in that manor which was very gracious of him.

If you are lucky enough to find him available, grab him before someone else does!

Chuck "I AM your party!" Lawson was PERFECT for our wedding and party of 48 on the beach in Destin. He was GREAT on the steel drums, and the conch shell at the ceremony was unique and terrific!! Not only did he provide our ceremony music, he was DJ, singer and excellent entertainment all evening!! Can't say enough good things about him--he is a professional musician with a wide range of music and instruments and a really good entertainer. (Also, I think he is a nice guy, too!). Our family recommends him without hesitation for your wedding and party! Our guest list contained a wide range of ages--and Chuck made everybody happy!!

Chuck Lawson told us to leave it to him and everything would be great, and, man, he was so right! Chuck set up our song list, DJayed, played the steel drums, sang and generally entertained at our beach wedding and reception in Destin, and he was the best! He used our song list as the basis for a dance-inducing great time that had people of all ages up on the dance floor. Chuck is so positive and reasonably priced. And his personality is so friendly and easy going that you think of him as one of the wedding guest (with a lot of talent). We recommend Chuck enthusiastically and without reservation for your wedding or special event.

He kept everyone entertained at the reception, danced with everyone, and put on a fantastic show!!! Even though I contracted him for the music he did so much more! We had a threat of a hurricane on our wedding day and needed to find a back up place to move it in doors and while I stressed finding a place that would work with us, Chuck had already been looking for me without my knowledge! We ended up having it on the beach but Chucks genuine concern for everything to come together was very impressive!!!! He truly goes above and beyond to ensure your wedding day is a success and FUN!!! He will tell you he works for you and means it:-) If there were 100 stars on here he would deserve everyone of them! Choosing him was the best choice!! I would defiantly recommend him to everyone!!

Chuck did the music for our beach vow renewal ceremony on Oct 1, 2013. It was a surprise for my wife on our 25th anniversary. HIRE CHUCK. We hadn't met him prior to the ceremony but afterwards it felt like we have known him for years. He brought both his steel drums and his acoustic guitar, and in advance of the ceremony discussed the type of music we liked and had me pick out the actual songs. Most memorable were the acoustic versions of Dock of the Bay and I'm Yours (Mraz) - we were floored. His original song Blue Ocean Magic was what my wife and I danced to on the beach. And the steel drums were incredible. Chuck is very easy to work with and pretty funny. Again, HIRE CHUCK.

Chuck was absolutely amazing to work with! He was so easy to get in contact with and listened to everything we requested for our wedding. He played the steelpans for our wedding ceremony which created the perfect mood and environment for our beach wedding. At the reception he played all of the music we requested and he sang and played live for us as well. He is such a talented musician and entertainer! He was amazing at engaging our guests and getting our party started which made us all never want it to end! All of our guests were dancing the whole night and kept complimenting us on our DJ choice. I would definitely recommend Chuck to anyone who is looking for the perfect DJ and Musician for their big day!

Chuck is awesome! I contacted him at the last minute to surprise my wife for our anniversary. He set up on the beach (in the dark) and my wife and I were serenaded on the beach for over an hour. I would highly recommend Chuck for any type of occasion - he is organized, responsive, friendly, and very talented. I can't say enough about him! We went the following week to catch him playing at Pompano Joe's, where we had a ball listening to him play. He is a great American, patriot, and supporter of our military as well. God Bless!

We went the following week to catch him playing at Pompano Joe's, where we had a ball listening to him play. He is a great American, patriot, and supporter of our military as well. God Bless!

Don't waste one more second reading reviews for Chuck Lawson! Call, email or do what ever you need to do to get him booked right away.
My daughter and her fiancé saw him performing on the beach in Seaside during Spring Break. They were very impressed. They assumed we could never afford him, but nonetheless they recommended I check him out.
It was an easy decision for me and I am SO glad I was able to secure him. Chuck's knowledge of music, experience with reading the crowd, and easy going personality made him the perfect choice for us.
The Steel Drums and the conch shell for the ceremony were so lovely. (If you are planning the wedding I recommend you keep the conch shell a surprise to all your guests including the bride and groom if possible.) The reaction was incredible. (goose bumps included).
From the First Dance to The Grand Escape, Chuck had guests (8 years old to 80 years old dancing) the night away. My husband even commented (and trust me, I know!) "I never dance at parties, but I think I danced half the night away." That's a huge compliment to Chucks ability to play things everyone loves!
If I could hire him for a local party in Tyler Texas--- I WOULD! Besides the Bride and Groom and all the family and friends united to celebrate love- I would say Chuck was easily the best decision of wedding planning we made!

All of Chuck's reviews are 100% accurate. We are from out of state and I found Chuck on this website. I love music and was nervous to book someone I have never seen in action before. Chuck exceeded my expectations with our beach ceremony music and his live music/dj skills during our reception. He truly knows how to get the party started and has the skills to get everyone on the dance floor. If we lived in the area I would hire Chuck again for ANY event! He is gifted in what he does and will not disappoint! He has such an inviting personality and we loved working with him. I would recommend Chuck to anyone who wants to have a great time!

My groom and I were so pleased with Chuck and his performance at our ceremony. To be completely honest I don't even remember hearing him play, I was so in the zone of my groom and getting married. However, my guests just raved about the steel drums. They were the perfect way to complete our beach ceremony. Chuck was great to work with, we booked him very close to our wedding date so we only had one conversation before our big day but he was prompt at the wedding and very professional.

Chuck absolutely made our wedding. He started our ceremony by playing the steel drums and blew into a conch shell as I arrived. From the moment everyone arrived at the beach house for the reception we were on our feet dancing. Chuck has a gift for feeling the crowd and playing the songs that we requested while avoiding those awkward times when everyone leaves the dance floor for a mood killing slow song. The 50 guests that came in from Chicago fell in love with Chuck and were chanting his name by the end of the night "Chuck, Chuck, Chuck", he even finished the night with a steel drum encore! Our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and we have Chuck to thank for that. We couldn't be happier, hire Chuck for your wedding!

Chuck couldn't have been more perfect for our wedding! He is one talented guy and super nice. He blew the conch shell when I (the bride) was about to walk down the aisle and blew everybody's mind! Who else can say they had that at their wedding? :) He can do it all...DJ, MC, sing, play every instrument..he's your go-to guy! Not only is he an amazing artist, he is also very down to earth and extremely nice! He was probably the only vendor I had that was easy to contact and was very responsive and professional. I wish all my vendors would have been as professional and trustworthy as Chuck. BOOK HIM!

Chuck is not only a great musician, he is just a great guy in general. He does a fabulous job of getting an idea of what you want, and then what your guests want. I wanted one thing, so Chuck started out with the vibe i picked in the beginning of the night...but he knew I wanted folks to dance, so he changed the vibe for the last hour of our reception. It was perfect though. The ceremony was beautiful, I cannot rave enough about what a wonderful job he did. chuck truly cares about every aspect...and he won't let you down. I am so happy we had Chuck and wouldn't change a thing about any of it!

He was also EXTREMELY talented in both his musical abilities and his singing abilities. My daughter will be getting married soon and we are trying to arrange for Chuck to provide his services at her special day also. If you want talent, personality, and genuine quality, all at a reasonable price, ask for Chuck. You will not be disappointed!

They still talk about how amazing he was. I paired him with Marie T. Di Giovine as the officent and they worked so well together. If you want a stress free amazing time then I suggest you hire these two and kick off your shoes and dance!

He also provided music and entertainment at the reception which was held at Shipps Harbour Grill. He made it a night to remember for all. We can't wait to hear him perform somewhere close by so that we can go listen to him again. He really made the reception!!

I can't say enough about Chuck! He pretty much saved our wedding. In 36 hours we got 22.5 inches of rain for our Destin beach wedding along with 60 MPH wind. 2 hours from the start of the wedding we changed location to my aunt's house in Niceville about 30 minutes away. Without hesitation Chuck picked up and moved to the new location.

We were blown out of the water by how talented Chuck is. The steel drums were beautiful, his voice right on, and he played all his own instruments in his recordings. He had my 84 year old grandfather tapping his foot and my 7 year old flower girl "crazy" dancing. He even impressed my toughest critic, my dad. My dad was so impressed by Chuck's musical talents and range of genre.

Most importantly Chuck was such a pleasure to have. He is VERY professional, nice, and warm hearted. Thank you for everything Chuck!

From the first time I spoke with Chuck on the phone, I knew he was the person to truly entertain us for Lindsay and Michael's wedding. He is very warm, professional and has a fabulous personality that is pleasing to everyone. He truly entertained all of us with the blowing of the conch shell, the lovely steel drums and at the reception did a fabulous job singing, playing guitar and a mix of dj music. Absolutely the best! Everyone of all age groups thoroughly enjoyed Chuck. He also did a wonderful job as emcee and kept the flow of the reception going, exceptional timing on his part. If you are looking for versatile, friendly, well rounded and someone who truly engages with the party, hire Chuck! He is fantastic. Thank you for making our evening very memorable.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about what Chuck Lawson brought to our wedding experience. On a day filled with much anxiety, (our weather was not cooperating with our original beach wedding plans), Chuck was the ultimate professional, bringing his good nature and invaluable experience to the table as we restructured our wedding day setup to accommodate the hastily devised “Plan B.” Providing what he promised and more, Chuck set the perfect musical tone for our daughter’s beautiful wedding, and fabulously fun reception. It takes an incredible amount of talent to do what he does and make it look so effortless, and I will be forever grateful that Chuck Lawson was able to play such an important part of our daughter’s special day. A class act all the way, I totally understand why he came to me so highly recommended, and in turn, I will happily recommend him to anyone that is looking for any kind of event entertainment guaranteed to leave lasting happy memories for every guest.

He acted as a wedding coordinator and kept the party moving and dancing.Chuck sang and played a wide variety of music that appealed to all ages. Without Chuck, it would have been just a wedding.

Chuck did a great job, he played somewhere over the rainbow on the beach and it was awesome. He was also a great DJ/Live musician for the reception. He was fun and personable and a pleasure to work with.

I can't believe there aren't more reviews posted for Chuck yet. He is so popular and well worth every penny, I was expecting to see so many reviews. But then again, our wedding was July 2010 and look how long it took to finally get around the review.

Anyway, well, where should I start? The first conversation I had with Chuck while shopping for a DJ/musician for our beach wedding lasted over an hour! He was just so engaging, attentive, and it was clear from the get go that he was a professional with extensive experience. He was just really pleasant to work with from the beginning to the end...and WAS SUPERB on our wedding day. He was the MC, the DJ, and the band and I can't tell you how much we enjoyed having him there....he really knew how to put the ambiance of a fun beach paradise, and as he promised, all our worries were gone when we decided to hire him. He was so interactive and fun during the reception, our guest just loved him! He is quite talented and now that we're looking at our wedding videos more often, I'm realizing even more about how blessed we were to have him!

DO NOT DELAY - BOOK CHUCK LAWSON TODAY!

I have to admit that as my wedding day approached, I was apprehensive about not having hired a band, but I had NO reason to worry whatsoever! When I initially contacted Chuck, I told him that I wanted to hire his entire retinue of performers because I wanted a "band" feel for our reception. Chuck talked me into hiring him as a one-man-showband, advising that it was frivolous to spend the money just to have more people on stage. I have to say, he was spot on! And we were able to spend the savings on more champagne for our guests! Win-win :)

We had a VERY diverse group of guests at our wedding - from tamer, low-key family members to crazy, wild, dance-ready friends - and Chuck's talents got EVERYONE on the dance floor, moving and grooving and having a BALL! I think I danced the entire night!

Also, having Chuck perform at our ceremony was PERFECT! Everyone loved the steel drums and I really enjoyed having the conch shell sound for my grand entrance! We had so many compliments on our "two" performers - the steel drum player on the beach and the DJ at the reception. Our guests were shocked when I informed them that they were one and the same!

Chuck is awesome!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Chuck was everything we wanted and more! He did a fantastic job with our sunset beach ceremony music, and kept our family and friends on the dance floor. Chuck was great to work with, and I would recommend him to anyone getting married in the Destin / Ft. Walton Beach area. He is worth every penny! Thanks so much Chuck!

I booked from out of state and didn't know what to expect but Chuck is a find! He knows what he's doing and he takes good care of his brides! We did steel drum for the ceremony, it was original and everyone especially loved hearing the conch shell. I would use him again for any other event if I could.

Do you like Island/Tropical music? Pick Chuck! Do you want a musican that is professional and has a high attention to detail? Call Chuck! Do you want to avoid the dull DJ that plays the same songs you hear on the radio everyday? Hire Chuck!

My wife, family, and I are very happy with Chuck's performance this last weekend. From the little touches he put on all the classic songs to make them more personal to us and our family, to the professionalism he displayed in being on time and hassle free(wedding, reception, breaks for dinner and desert, good mix of songs), Chuck truely loves entertaining at a high level.

Thanks Chuck for making our wedding so much fun!

Chuck Lawson did a fantastic job on our wedding July 20th, 2010! He even learned and sang music we gave him to play for the ceremony. He was wonderful and we would definitely reccommend him to others.

I hate to be the person to write a bad review, but I feel like I owe it to other brides. Chuck Lawson is a very nice person, but from a business contract perspective, he disappointed us. The wedding ceremony music, by Chuck, was good. My wedding was on the beach and he played the steel drums during the ceremony, which was great for a beach wedding. However, the reception music, the most important in my mind, was just not up to par. He forgot the type of music we agreed upon him playing (80's and Motown) classic wedding music. Also, he never played anything from my "must play song list" (a cd he had me make for him). These were things he and I discussed when going into contract together, types of music we wanted and/or did not want. Chuck just failed to follow through. I would recommend anyone considering Chuck Lawson to meet him first and listen to him play for a crowd, it seems he just will not stray from the sound he wants. I wish I had done a little more research in this area.
