1: DeeJay Charley with own DJ booth

Playing equipment (record player(s), mixer, laptop) comes with the booth. Accessories like movie studio lamp, vintage microphone, 'Now Playing' light, VJ images and more are available. Amplification / loudspeakers are an extra option.


2: Gramophone DJ Charley

DJ Charley brings a top-of-the-bill Deccalion (10 Watts amplified) record player from 1959, records and movie studio light. Vintage entertainment for your lounge space, start of party, at diner, cocktail party, festival, cultural event etcetera. Jazzy music or fun 50's - 60's tunes, twist, Rock & Roll, exotica, or a specific theme: vinyl sounds for a vintage atmosphere!

The equipment is ready to go (no build up time) instant atmosphere on any location! Beware: for real dancing parties DJ Charley with DJ booth is a better option since there is a 2 seconds time for changing records with this set up.


3: DeeJay Charley with his records.

DJ Charley plays vintage-, retro-, and party-music; from Easy Tune 'till Big Band Swing. From R&R and Soul 'till Disco and Retrolicious new beats. All on vinyl (but a -hidden- laptop could be handy for requests etc.). Charley can use your equipment but he can also bring record player and amplification. Effect lamps, VJ images and vintage accessories can be hired too.

Ask for the brochure and pricelist.



4: JukeBox Charley

Vintage & Retro DJ 'Jukebox Charley' uses an original adapted Wurlitzer jukebox (from 1948!) as a very decorative Disc Jockey booth, including record player and amplification plus props.

He selects the vinyl from old fashioned record cases. All for your listening and dancing pleasure. Wearing vintage clothing, old movie studio light, authentic microphone, special light effects and sometimes special VJ imagery is the 'picture' complete! Turn-Key solution for instant atmosphere in any space!





Option: request records!

For more interactivity it is possible your guests choose a record out of antique recordboxes. The selection can be from the '20s untill the '80s. From 'In The Mood' by Glenn Miller to 'Jailhouse Rock' by Elvis Presley to 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love' by Queen. Think jukebox music like Soul, Rock & Roll, Beat, Disco and pop. From easy listening to fun or funky dance music ; Diana Ross & the Supremes, Jackson 5, Kool & the Gang, Charles Aznavour, The Four Seasons, Blondie, Beatles, Madonna etc. Many known (or lesser known) tunes on vinyl with great looking sleeves. The content of the request boxes can be filled according to your theme.

Ask for the possibilities.

"DJ Charley could read the audience very well. During dinner he played thematic music that uplifted the atmosphere but wasn't disturbing. Later more energy and music to dance to." (Dave - business event 1920-1940 mobster style)

"You really nailed it, both my parents and youngest of the group were into your retro tunes, the mix of old and new music seamlessly worked together and made the atmosphere great! I didn't expect so many people to dance. Your clothing and dj booth with antique gramophone player plus the veejay projections enhanced the whole visual aspect of the party, thanks!" (Laura - 40th birthday party)

"The DJ had a very positive influence at our product presentation. The show tunes and background music was exactly what we needed" (Arnout - product presentation)
