CHUCK RUSSO – Professional Disc Jockey offers disc jockey services for events and occasions in New Jersey and the surrounding area. Established in 1985, the business is now in its 29th year providing clients with a customer focused service at competitive prices.



I began my radio career in 1975 at WDHA-FM (105.5) in Randolph, NJ and most recently was heard on STAR 99.1 in Somerset, NJ. Fourteen years of on-air radio announcing, commercial production and corporate voice-over work have provided me the necessary tools to handle any type of affair.

Don't be fooled by the inexperienced! There's more to DJing than just playing music. It takes knowledge of music, experience behind a microphone and the ability to understand people. The average age of the wedding dj these days is between 22- 27 with about 2 years experience. Honestly, who would you rather have? Someone who has performed at over 2500 weddings or the inexperienced masses. Please visit my website at www.chuckrusso.com to learn more about what I can do for you.

We hired Chuck Russo to DJ our Wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at the Madison Hotel. We were exceptionally pleased with him. To put it simply Chuck is a class act and a great guy. From the moment we met Chuck we could tell he would be great. He was a complete gentleman and professional, a pleasure to work with, and had a great sense of humor. Chuck played all the music we requested, and then some. He offered helpful suggestions on several points of music selection. He tactfully saved us from the chair dance during the hora. He even got my bride's drink in a pinch. We received countless compliments on the music, and even though it was the hottest day of the year he still got people out on the dance floor. We would highly recommend Chuck for any wedding or occasion.

From the first meeting we had with Chuck, we knew he would be the DJ for our wedding. He had a flexible meeting schedule and he came prepared. Not only did we have a wedding folder he provided to us, we spoke at length about what we wanted during our day. He gave us great feedback and made the day memorable. He provided the music for our wedding ceremony and for our reception. He did not disappoint. He played a great set of songs and added requests of others from the wedding guests. I would definitely recommend Chuck and his team to others. He did a fabulous job!

Chuck was amazing. As an out of town bride it is very difficult to plan a wedding and he made communication with him easy. My husband and I created a list of must play songs and he was able to accommodate all our wishes. He did a great job reading the room throughout the night and our guests had a great time dancing the night away.

I'll start with an honest story of how I had originally hired a different DJ who turned out to be very shady and we let them go 2 months before the wedding. My venue recommended Chuck Russo and when my dad called and explained our situation, Chuck was in our living room THAT NIGHT to talk it out and assure us he'd make our wedding wonderful.... he totally delivered.

2 weeks before the wedding Chuck called to go over my play/do not play list. He also went over the schedule of the reception events. He has all the music you could ever want and has lots of suggestions on what to play for what parts of the night.

I can't tell you the number of compliments I received regarding the variety of music at our wedding. In addition to playing everything I had requested, the other music he chose was right in line with our taste, based on our list! Our dance floor was never empty.

In NJ, a lot of the DJ's are typical fist pumping jersey shore types with flashy colored lights and very pushy advertising. Chuck is not this-- he is classy, direct, and upfront with you about what your day is going to be like. He was a very tasteful emcee as well.

Chuck Russo is a true professional and was absolutely wonderful at our wedding! I recommend him 100%!

First of all, I have to note that my family, including my parents' wedding, has not only been using Chuck Russo for weddings for years, but they LOVE Chuck! Once my husband and I sat and spoke with Chuck, we both knew immediately that Chuck was going to be our DJ. Not only is Chuck extremely professional and kind, but he had the experience that we wanted and the no-nonsense attitude that I really appreciated. Throughout the wedding process, Chuck responded in a timely matter to any questions I had and went above and beyond for me if I had any questions for him. The reception was SO much fun thanks to him! I did not want the party to end. I can assure you that Chuck plays an extremely wide range of music, from music that our friends (my husband and I are in our early 20s, and our friends and majority of cousins are that age as well), family and older relatives truly enjoyed. My number one necessity for my wedding was the music would get people onto the dance floor the entire night - and Chuck did just that! People are STILL coming up to me and raving about how much fun they had with my DJ!! Chuck did such an amazing job of getting everyone out on the dance floor all night long. I gave Chuck a "do not play" list that he stuck to, which I LOVED. He selected the perfect music for the night, and I am very happy that I chose Chuck to be my DJ! I would absolutely recommend him to my friends & family!

I got married on October tenth 2014 and honestly could not have asked for a better DJ. Chuck not only has a wonderful personality but he is a hard worker and will do all he can to accommodate you on your special day. Chuck works on his own and literally does it all!! He is amazing at what he does and will provide his absolute HONEST opinions and input when asked (I was having trouble with ceremony music and he helped me work out my thoughts and feelings on a lot of my choices). Chuck is a DJ who is willing to listen and take all of your ideas into consideration in order to put them into play. Chuck is great on emails, follow-up emails and phone calls and will be sure to get in touch with you if he has any questions or is unsure on how you want something. Right before the wedding (the most stressful time) Chuck and I sat on the phone for a while and worked out all of the final details of my Big Day and needless to say people are still talking about the music at my wedding and the great time they had! I HIGHLY recommend Chuck, you simply can't go wrong.

Chuck was the perfect DJ for our wedding. He has a great personality, his prices are reasonable, he was very responsive during our planning process, and he was willing to work with us to ensure we had the playlist and the atmosphere we were looking for. We made a "please play" list and a "please do not play" list, which he stuck to, and was good at reading the crowd and playing a mix of music that kept people on the dance floor all night! He's a great MC, announcing enough to keep things moving and to make sure everything gets done, but not trying to steal the show or put on a performance. My in laws were seriously against a DJ, but came up to both me and to Chuck afterward and said they were wrong and he had done a great job. We got a ton of comments on how much fun the wedding was. We have no complaints, and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding DJ.

We wanted a DJ who is laid back and would get the crowd going without playing group games or interacting too much with the crowd. We got exactly what we wanted with Chuck. Other than picking songs for our first dance, reception entrance and cake cutting, we left the rest up to him. He was very easy to work with and did a great job in getting our guests of all ages to dance.

We were married at Park Avenue Club on July 26, 2014 and hired Chuck Russo as our DJ. I had met Chuck Russo at a bridal event held at Park Avenue Club and my husband and I met with him shortly after and knew immediately we would be booking him. We didn't even have to look at anyone else! He truly is the best at what he does. He was very responsive to any questions/concerns we had and always answered in a timely manner. We are big dancers and wanted the dance floor to be packed all night and Chuck did not disappoint. The dance floor was crowded the ENTIRE night! We made a few suggestions as to what we wanted but Chuck did a fantastic job at reading the crowd to make sure the dance floor was always occupied. The other thing that we liked about him isWe are still receiving compliments about the music. You know you've hired a good DJ when family members that are known not to set foot on the dance floor are on the dance floor! Chuck was super accommodating and the whole evening was flawless. I attribute that to Chuck's professionalism and the fact that has such a good relationship with our venue.

Chuck is an amazing DJ! He did my sisters wedding a few years back and he was the first phone call I made when I got engaged because of the job he did for my sister! Not only is Chuck so easy to work with, he has a talent for surveying the crowd and making sure he plays music that will have everyone of all ages consistently on the dance floor! In addition to that, Chuck played any songs we requested, and even gave advice for some music to play for specific events of the evening (bouquet/garter/cake cutting). Another huge plus for us was that Chuck keeps his music at an enjoyable noise level. During dinner he makes it easy to hold conversation, and knows when to turn the music up to party! My husband and I can't say enough about Chuck. He threw an amazing party at such a reasonable price! Many of our guests came up to us to compliment the music! Anyone would be lucky to have Chuck as their DJ!
