Charles Azagra DJ, Emcee
Charles (also know as DJ Chizzy amongst his peers) started his musical journey at an early age and has been pursuing his passion ever since. At age 11 he began studying piano which trained his ear to hear melodies and harmonies. As a young adult, he developed his DJ skills while working at a recording studio. Being surrounded by amazing musicians as they conducted their studio sessions fed more into his understanding of musical styles.
Possessing a keen ear for how music and songs are structured, coupled with his vast knowledge of different genres across the decades, makes Charles a well versed DJ capable of reading any crowd in any situation. His mixes range from all decades from the 50s to today, ensuring that everyone on the dance floor will hear feel good music that is familiar to them.
Aside from his busy schedule performing at wedding, corporate and private events, Charles has performed as A DJ throughout the Northeast at nightclubs such as Whisky Saigon, West End Johnnies, Storyville, Wonder Bar, Lawn on D, Down Ultra Lounge, Alibi, Murphy’s (Salem) Rebel Lounge (Providence), and Whiskey Republic (Providence) just to name a few.
Testimonials Charles Azagra
From the minute we reached out to C-Zone Entertainment, it was clear that they were committed to understanding what we wanted and how they could help us achieve it. Their management was on top of their game — quickly responding to any inquiry (even if we’d already asked), quoting us prices for all services, and reminding us of deadlines for our own decision making so they could best meet our needs. C-Zone Entertainment was imminently professional and worth every penny. Per C-Zone custom, we twice skyped with DJ Charles Azagra before the event. In our talks with him he was courteous and friendly, and he struck us as someone that could really emcee a party. He did not disappoint on the big day — not only had he clearly listened to our off-the-cuff naming of preferred genres during our discussion in addition to his adherence to every specific song request we had made inside of the client portal, but he also payed attention to the vibe of the party, and broke out a 30-minute set of upbeat hip-hop without any instruction, which blew our guests and ourselves away. He did a fantastic job with all of the musical cues, introductions, and pacing of the evening. We could not have asked for a better DJ. We also were very impressed with the quality of the string/cello duo during our ceremony and cocktail hour. Their music was delicate and beautiful, and perfectly matched the setting of the event. They played our selections wonderfully and the music they had chosen themselves out of their own catalog was perfect. The photobooth operator was fun and engaging, and the results of the night of photos taken in the booth have been universally adored by our friends and family. Together, C-Zone created the ideal environment for a big party. Explosively fun, detail-oriented, but with panache and bravado that turned the evening from a nice night of music and dancing into a dynamic and unforgettable event.

Everyone at C-Zone Entertainment is great! Great attitude, professionals and friendly. We cannot rave enough about Charles, our DJ from C-Zone Entertainment. We had our first meeting with him to sort of get an idea of our likes and dislikes. Charles was very patient and informative. From that first meeting, we knew he would be great. We chatted again after making our choices of music from the extensive list that was made available to us. Again, Charles was very patient, easy going and very helpful. The day of the wedding was just awesome! The music was pumping all night. We had a lot of fun. People are still talking about Charles, his great attitude and the music. As you know, a party cannot be a hit without good music and a good DJ who knows “his/her stuff”. Thank you to Charles so much for being so accommodating and patient. He was instrumental in making our party a hit. My husband and I went to a wedding the following week. One of the guests from my wedding was also at that wedding. She told us that she had a lot more fun at our wedding because “the music was so much better.” Clearly, this is a testament of Charles’ talents. Thank you, thank you and thank you again for everything!

Our experience at C-Zone was amazing! Charles was the DJ for our wedding at the Boston Public Library, and we honestly couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful experience. He was incredibly professional — talking with us ahead of time and meeting in person, and arriving early to help set up sound for our ceremony — and everyone had an absolute blast on the dance floor from start to finish. His song selections were awesome, and he earned rave reviews from all our guests. When my husband and I started planning our wedding, we decided the most important things for us were great venue, great food, great dancing. Charles delivered beyond what we could’ve imagined.
