Gup Gascoigne has been a music lover
since he was a toddler. He began spinning records at parties and
school functions in 1966, when he bought his first stereo system.
His first DJ engagement for pay came in December of 1973 performing
an oldies show at a junior high school in Farmingdale, Maine. In
1975, he was the first Dee-Jay in Morris County, NJ to host an "oldies"
night at "Smiles" in Parsippany.
A leader in the DJ field since then, Gup has specialized in presenting
classic dance music from the Swing Era through the 1960's. His commanding
knowledge of Pop Standards, Big Band, early Rock & Roll, and Rhythm
& Blues makes him a natural choice for those who demand a packed
dance floor! Gup has MC'd more than 9,000 performances to date (over
1000 of them wedding receptions!) and personally
presides over every show he's booked for. He will see to it that
your special day goes just as planned!
In 1985 he established the New York metro-area's first fully professional
jukebox rental service "The Duke of Jukes" - now trading as PARTYJUKES
®, renting jukeboxes to the television and movie industries.
Since 1979, music entertainment has been Gup's ONLY
profession. While the majority of his contemporaries are part-time
DJ's, Gup has managed to stay true to his R&B and R&R roots
full time for over 45 years! In addition to performing
at events, car shows, functions and parties around the country,
Gup can be heard on a variety of radio outlets in New Jersey and
Florida hosting his two radio shows - "Pop Treasury" and "Still
Rockin' "! He is currently in around the 34th
year of his Pop, Swing, Early Rock & Roll, and Rhythm
& Blues night at the Exchange in Rockaway, NJ - the longest
running oldies night in NJ!
See "Gup's Calendar" for all his public dates and details of radio

(originally from London, England), a professional dance teacher.
