Coming from the Southside of Chicago, Chuck P started playing music at small venues and basement parties back in 1986. Like many up and coming jocks in the 80’s, Chuck P was a huge fan of legendary DJ’s Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles. These established professionals had attained worldwide prowess for being fierce in the booth with energy and musical selections that kept people on the dance floor without taking a break. Chuck P soon developed the similar philosophy of never taking a record off, “every musical selection counts” as he recalls his days of playing to large basement audiences across the city.
Not long after Chuck P’s DJ skills and philosophy began to take shape, he was fortunate enough to play at his first “big” party in 1989 when he had the privilege of playing alongside the legendary Chicago Icon DJ/Producer Armando at a club simply called “The Hummingbird”. From this party, Chuck P would go on to play at other Chicago venues such as; AKA’s & Club Music World a la The Gentle Persuasion.
Over the years Chuck P has been fortunate to play alongside other Chicago greats such as Terry Hunter, Mike Dunn, Gene Hunt, Andre Hatchett, Jamie 3:26, Rahaan and many more. With a great ear for the music, Chuck P has the ability to offer up multiple genres of music from Underground, disco, classics, new music, rare grooves, funk, and soul music. While he has no current residency, Chuck P was a part of a couple different party series, one of which allowed him to work with the legendary owner of the Music Box, Mr. Robert Williams.
Chuck P’s thoughts on playing music are quite simple “there is no greater rush in this world, than making people dance”. Chuck P hopes to continue to rock clubs, venues, and net shows as long as someone will have him. Chuck P now enjoys affiliations with the “Nu Bang Clan” as well as P.S. Entertainment whose vision is to give party goers the best in what the music has to offer.
