Retro DJ Charley uses a vintage Wurlitzer 1100 jukebox as a very decorative DJ booth including amplification and props.
He selects a record stored in old fashioned record boxes, and puts it on the record player inside the jukebox, all for your listening and dancing pleasure. Well dressed in a suit and with props like a beautiful microphone, vintage movie studio lamp and disco light effects he’s picture perfect! A turn key solution for an instant atmosphere in any space!
The Wurlitzer 1100 jukebox is one of the greatest eyecatchers of all time! It features gorgeous moving and changing illumination through crystal-clear embossed door plastics. Back in 1948 this jukebox was an innovation in the industry. To top it off, Wurlitzer’s panoramic window 'aeronautical astro-dome' lets you see DJ Jukebox Charley put the vinyl inside the player. It’s magic in a theatrical setting right before your very eyes.
This jukebox with live DJ is well suited for a lounge setting, at the start of an all-night event, a networking or cocktail party, during a dinner, and even for a dance party!
DJ Charley is also available with other DJ booths or can simply come around with his records using your equipment.

"Driving back to Amsterdam from a gig I thought of how to make the perfect DJ booth for my music styles. At that moment, the country song 'Jukebox Charlie' started playing and -the penny dropped-!: I'll buy my vintage-dream-jukebox, open up the rear and use it as a DJ booth."
It sure turned out a novel idea! A new DJ concept was born: the living jukebox!
