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 to host an “oldies” night at a club called “Smiles” in Parsippany.
In 1985 he established the New York metro-area’s first fully professional jukebox rental service “The Duke of Jukes” – now trading as PARTYJUKES ®.
Since 1979, music entertainment has been Gup’s ONLY profession. In addition to performing at events, car shows, functions and parties around the country, Gup can be heard on a regular basis at the EXCHANGE on most Wednesday nights in Rockaway, New Jersey.
His Mission Statement is simple: TO PROVIDE THE BEST VALUE IN THE SPECIALIZED PRESENTATION OF POP, SWING, EARLY ROCK & ROLL AND RHYTHM & BLUES MUSIC TO BE HEARD ANYWHERE, IN A COMPETENT, ZESTFUL, YET DIGNIFIED MANNER!
