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.



the bottom line….more than 30 years in the music business. Read less

Chuck was amazing! He did the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We gave him a list of our music and he made the night fantastic. People didn't want to sit down for dinner they were having so much fun dancing! His sound system was great and he is really easy to work with. My mom surprised me with a second song after our mother/daughter dance and she said he was so willing to help her out and made it such a beautiful moment. I can't thank him enough.

Chuck did the music at my daughter's wedding reception 2 weeks ago. His son Jonathan did the instrumentals during the wedding ceremony. We couldn't have asked for two more fabulous people to supply our music. They worked with my daughter on song choices and the moments for which she should have special song choices. Their equipment provided great sounds (crisp, clear music and vocals) at appropriate levels for dancing, introductions or speeches. And Chuck keep everyone dancing! He worked well with the maitre d' at the venue to keep everything flowing smoothly from intros to first dances to speeches to dancing to garter and flowers to more dancing......everything was seamless. He is an amazing DJ and we are so happy he did our daughter's wedding! Thank you Chuck and Jonathan.

Chuck did a fantastic job at our wedding! He was the DJ for our reception, and his son played the guitar for our cocktail hour. We also rented a photobooth through him, and everyone loved it! People were out on the dance floor before dinner was even served, and everyone danced the night away! My friends and relatives have told me how great the song selection was. Chuck was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend his services!

Chuck Russo is an amazing disk jockey! We wanted a DJ who could get everyone to get up and dance without feeling like we were at a club at the Jersey Shore. He is very classy and professional. We gave him a list of songs we wanted to hear as well as songs that we definitely did not want to hear. He played everything that we asked for as well of lots of others that went along with our general preferences. Chuck has so much experience that he can give you very helpful advice. I would recommend hiring Chuck if you want a professional DJ who will keep your wedding day classy! After seeing him at work at my wedding, my cousin has already hired him for her wedding. See you in July Chuck!

Chuck Russo was the absolute best choice for our wedding on October 22, 2016 at the Olde Mill Inn! We met Chuck at a bridal show at the Olde Mill Inn and we knew as soon as we met him that he was going to be our DJ. From that very introduction Chuck was courteous, friendly, informative, and helpful. He didn't have the typical over the top, obnoxious sales pitch compared to most DJ/entertainment groups we came across. He was the first and only DJ we met with and we are so glad it worked out for us. Shortly after we met him at the bridal show, he quickly responded to our inquiry to meet up in order to discuss business. He came fully prepared with a complete portfolio and answered any questions we had for him. He used to be an on-air professional DJ for many years before starting up his own business and it was very clear that he knew what he was doing. We were not looking for the typical DJ that you see at a lot of events, the kind that has a million people working per event that seem like they want all the attention for themselves. We had observed a lot of these types at other bridal shows and Chuck made it known from the start that if that's what we wanted, he was definitely not the guy. Lucky for us Chuck is what we were looking for! He offered us a promotional package which included ceremony music (his son, a guitarist), uplighting for the ballroom, and a photo booth. The pricing was very affordable and a great value. Everything was exactly what we wanted and more. Everyone is still complimenting us on how great our entertainment was. We are attending two weddings this year that Chuck will be DJ'ing and we can't wait! If you are looking for a professional, seasoned, pleasant, amazing DJ then Chuck Russo is your guy! Thank you so much Chuck!!!

Chuck was our DJ for our wedding two weeks ago. He did an outstanding job making sure all our requests were met. We had a very specific plan for the ceremony music, which included a live singer that Chuck did not meet until the day of, and my mother playing the harp while plugged into his sound system. Chuck made sure that everything ran seamlessly and the ceremony music turned out perfect. The reception music was just as flawless. We gave Chuck a list of songs we wanted played and the timing of each. Every single song we asked for was played at the correct time. My husband did a solo dance in the middle of the reception and Chuck got it going and got everyone out to watch. I also gave him specific cultural music to play during the reception only 2 hours before the wedding started and Chuck had no problem executing my last minute request. We are so happy with Chuck's service and we definitely recommend him to anyone who wants a professional, accommodating and knowledgable DJ.

I do not have enough kind words for Chuck and his professionalism and generous spirit. He goes above and beyond your expectations, is responsive, and will not hesitate to accommodate your requests. When unforeseen circumstances derailed my wedding plans, Chuck was there to ask how he could help. This is extremely rare in the for-profit wedding industry, and I cannot be grateful enough for his assistance.

Do not hesitate to book him--he is worth the money and your time!

Chuck is the BEST! He did an awesome job at our wedding - from the music on the beach for our wedding ceremony to the music at our indoor reception - he never skipped a beat. We provided a long list of songs from the 60's, 70's, 80's -- to today's top dance picks. Whether cocktail hour, dinner hour or time to dance - Chuck always had the right song playing at the right time -- and the dance floor was never empty at any time during the evening. Thanks Chuck - for being the exceptional, professional DJ that you always are!!!

Chuck was amazing! My husband knew from the first moment we met Chuck, and Chuck knew his favorite band and knew the song we wanted to have as our first dance, that he would be our DJ.He is quite in demand and we know why! He was open, friendly, professional and so knowledgeable about music. I am still getting compliments on the music, the pacing of the night, lighting and the photobooth which was a HUGE hit with our flower girls! I would recommend him to everyone! Chuck thanks for an amazing day - Love ya! Julie & David

Chuck Russo was amazing to work with!! We had him do our Reception music, photobooth, and uplighting, all of which were incredible. He was a recommended vendor at the Olde Mill Inn where we were married. Of all the vendors we researched, he was by far the most experienced, professional, and organized DJ (check out his website!) He has this down to a science with very simple forms to fill out to get a feel of the flow of events, people involved, toasts, musical preferences. He even called a few days prior to our wedding to make sure he had correct pronunciations of names in our bridal party. He gave us most requested songs lists from every genre to choose from, but he has access to anything and everything you could want to hear. We are a very eclectic bunch musically. The bride's side were country music lovers and professional ballroom dancers. The grooms side are 80's rock era lovers. He definitely had his hands full, but pulled it all together seamlessly. He has a wonderful voice and presence. We could not have asked for more! He far exceeded our expectations. Everyone had a blast. Thanks Chuck!
