I checked out many DJs for my daughter's wedding. I finally decided on Charlie after meeting with him at the venue and discussing the event. Charlie asked a lot of questions I hadn't even thought of, and he spoke with the manager about timing, permits, etc. I had no clue about all of those requirements! Once I hired him, Charlie kept in close contact with me, planning with the kids about what music they wanted, when they wanted announcements made, all of the little details that give the Mother of the Bride time to relax and enjoy the party. We also hired him to play the music for our ceremony. He was awesome when we had a surprise guitar player (courtesy of the groom's dad) show up to play before the wedding and during cocktail hour. He simply switched gears and coordinated with the guitar player. He was great with all of the requests the guests asked for, and kept the time line on track. I'd recommend DJ Charlie for your event!
Charlie is one of the most professional, courteous DJ's I have ever had the pleasure to work with. After going back and forth with my husband if we were going to get a DJ or not for our wedding we decided to take the plunge. Charlie showed up on time to every appointment we had and was patient with us going over our time line and music choices.He also was very quick about returning our e-mails. Our DJ Chase and videoographer Milagro did an amazing job on the day of our wedding setting everything up to the specifications that we requested. We received so many compliments on our DJ all night! Something every bride and groom wants to hear. We are so grateful we found Charlie and his crew. They truly made it a night we will never never forget!
DJ Charlie is very easy to work with and very professional at what he does. We are 100% satisfied and if you’re looking for a wedding DJ, Charlie is the guy to talk to.
I hired Charlie to DJ my wedding and he also took care of up lighting and dance floor lighting. I chose him for many reasons, but one of the main ones was that his packages included unlimited time of his DJ service, which somewhat reduced the cost of my long 9-hour wedding. Charlie took care of all of our needs and he definitely knows what he’s doing. He played all the songs we wanted to hear and kept everyone happy and dancing! I definitely recommend him to anyone who’s looking for an experienced and reasonably priced disc jockey.
DJ Charlie was the DJ at my wedding in December 2012. Having met with five different DJs, I picked DJ Charlie simply because he was very attentive and seemed to be the best qualified person for the job. During our meetings, Instead of trying to sell his services and telling us how good he was, he tried to help us with planning our wedding by clearly answering all of our questions and giving us the information we needed. We ended up with the “Red Diamond” package, which included all of his services and for many guests our wedding turned out to be the most luxurious one they’ve even seen. We had a pianist for our ceremony, a jazz trio for our cocktail hour, and a DJ, an MC and a saxophonist for our reception – all provided by DJ Charlie. I can’t think of anything I didn’t like and I can’t stress enough how happy I, my husband and all of our guests were with his services. Some of my friends have already asked me for his phone number and all I can say at this point is keep up the good work, Charlie!
I did business with DJ Charlie twice. He was my wedding DJ and MC in September and very recently he was hired to provide up lighting and dance floor lighting at my brother’s birthday party. The only reason he wasn’t a DJ there is because it was on a short notice and Charlie had already been booked. My family, my coworkers and my friends were very happy both times. Charlie knows what he’s doing and he is more than just a DJ. He knows how to work with all kinds of people to make them happy and avoid any possible conflicts or misunderstandings. He is also an excellent MC and at our wedding he made sure everyone knew what was happening or was about to happen and when. I’ve never seen so many people pleased with the music and dancing for so long as it was at our wedding. All of Charlie’s lights look really good; otherwise, we wouldn’t have rented them again. I’m very happy I finally found a DJ who gives his advice but always listens to me and who I can trust. Charlie was just hired to be a DJ at my friend’s wedding next summer.
We had Charlie DJ my wedding in September of 2012, and without a doubt I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in having a DJ at their wedding. He is a genuine and hard working person, and his DJing abilities are quite impressive. Having been involved in at least 8-10 weddings in which a DJ was the primary source of music, I can honestly say that Charlie's work is second-to-none. That alone is enough reason to hire his services, and when you combine this with his extreme flexibility, excellent MC skills, ability to read the wedding crowd and take care of your requests, your decision should be very easy. I hope you have a great wedding day, and I guarantee you will be quite pleased if you decide to use Charlie as your DJ.
DJ Charlie can really read the crowd and knows how to start & keep the fun going. The most important thing to me, though, is that he knew that it was our day and he made sure every little thing was just how we wanted it. Charlie took extra care to get all the complete information, proper names with correct pronunciation and what songs were on the “Definitely play” list, and what songs were on the “Do not play no matter how many people ask for it” list. He also made sure to provide all the songs we wanted. We are very grateful for the job Charlie did, but even more, for the way he did it.
Charlie Walkrich was the DJ at my wedding in August, and he was *excellent*! My husband and I wanted some music that is outside the norm for typical weddings (i.e. hard rock). Charlie was able to blend in our favorites while still pleasing the entire crowd. He really took our musical tastes into account. We had asked for an extremely out-of-the ordinary song to be introduced to, and even though he didn't have it in his musical collection, he was able to get it for the wedding. We also had a few songs on our "don't play" list, and he stood firm on not playing them even with many requests (and even with a proposed $20 bribe from my sister!!). We had many compliments on how great the DJ was, and how well the music fit the tastes and personalities of me and my husband. Thank you, Charlie!!!

Tony and I just got married on June 28th and Charlie was our DJ. I can't tell you how many people came up to us and said how much fun they had. EVERYONE was dancing, young and old alike! Some DJs can be intrusive and "try to be funny" during weddings, but Charlie was a perfect gentleman who was very laid back and could really read the crowd. Charlie played classical for our ceremony, then our own selection for cocktail hour, then Frank Sinatra style music for dinner hour, and finally great dance music afterwards. He kept our limited amount of activities on track (i.e. cake cutting, and bride/groom introduction) and I would highly recommend him for your wedding as well:-)
DJ charlie was hired to do my wedding ceremony and reception, and he definitely exceeded my expectations. He was incredibly professional, flexible, reliable, well-dressed, and spoke very well on the microphone to make announcements, introductions, etc. The dance floor was packed all night long and everyone said he was the best DJ they had ever heard. The booking process was very easy and Charlie accommodated all of our special requests. We are so happy with our DJ choice, our night could not have gone any better. I would recommend DJ Charlie to anyone looking for a DJ, in fact we already have!
DJ Charlie did an awesome job at my wedding in July. I am usually very demanding, but this time everything was perfect. My friend recommended him and now I recommend him to my friends. Thank you Charlie! You are a great person and a very professional and talented DJ. I hope to see you play again ;)
We had so much fun at my daughter's sweet 16 birthday party. DJ Charlie played all current dance pop and top 40 music videos on a large screen, which was the best entertainment we've had in the last several years. Charlie is very professional, I'm very happy I booked his services and I would like to have him back later on. Thank you, Charlie.
Charlie, we wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding in December. We had such a blast, and you really contributed a lot to that. We have gotten comments from so many of our guests, from teenagers to 80-year-olds, about what a great DJ and host you were! We would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends. Thanks again and best of luck with your business!

Thank you so much for playing such amazing music at my birthday party on Sunday, November 20th. You kept everyone going all night long and I'm looking forward to having you at my daughter's wedding!
Hi Charlie, Emerson and I wanted to thank you one more time for the AWESOME job that you did on Saturday! Not only did you play everything that we'd requested, but you mixed in some great ones that really kept with the spirit that we wanted at our wedding. Before the reception, Pat and I were worried that no one would dance during our daytime reception. We never thought that our problem would be that we didn't have a large enough dance floor!
You were able to do exactly what we asked and keep everyone happy. We sill spread the good word.
Emerson & Jessica
DJ Charlie Walkrich, thank you for the amazing job! I greatly appreciate the exceptional service you provided!
We both wanted to thank you for the tremendous job you did as the DJ for our anniversary on August 27th, 2011!
Our parents and a number of our guests commented on the excellent selection of music. We also really appreciate the fact that you went above and beyond to find selections that were meaningful to us. As you suggested the couples dance was a big hit as well. In addition, your professionalism and organization left us reassured that you would do a great job and not leave us “in the lurch” so to speak. We also knew that you would not be one of those DJ's who feel a need to inject their own cheesy personality on the event! Thank you again for helping to make our day so special.

Dear Charlie, what can I say, you blew us away. The music was awesome and you made our summer wedding a true success. The dancefloor was packed the entire night. We loved all of the music choices from old school to current.
We had a corporate holiday event in June 2011 and we wanted to have a video DJ to spin some hot music videos. Wow - what can I say? You are THE BEST! You played everything we requested and even more! We appreciate your professionalism and how friendly you were throughout the party. Take care and know that we're referring your name to people all the time.
Andrew & Peter
I just want to say thanks again. Of all the vendors we had, you were the one that I had the most confidence in prior to the big day. You really delivered the goods. You took the time to get to know us, were professional throughout and really put on a show. Not every DJ can mix and beatmatch songs the way you do. Thank you for helping to make sure our special day was so memorable! We're lucky to have been able to work with you!
I had my son's birthday party in May 2011 and I really wanted to thank you for the excellent job you did! The kids loved your lights not to mention all the remixes you played for them. Many kids commented to us afterwards how incredible you were and I'm looking forward to hiring you again!
DJ Charlie Walkrich did an amazing job at my wedding reception in May 2011. The music was great and I couldn't stop dancing all night. I had some people say it was the best night they have ever been to. I highly recommend you to everyone I know who's looking for a DJ.
