DJ Charlie Walkrich is the founder and owner of Golden Gate Sunrise Entertainment. He is a Ukrainian-American music composer, producer, singer, keyboard player, drummer, audio engineer, DJ and MC. Charlie started his music career in the late ‘90s, performing at local live concerts in Ukraine. He was playing drums and keyboards, as well as touring with a choir, working as a singer. After finishing his music education, DJ Charlie continued joining various live bands, giving concerts at nightclubs, restaurants, weddings, etc. Later, in 2009, he created his own Charlie Walkrich Band and worked as a keyboardist, composer, producer, and manager. At the same time, Charlie studied at the Kyiv National University of Culture and Arts for a career in entertainment management. These skills gave him the opportunity to organize and manage different types of private events, such as international conventions, corporate celebrations, charity balls, etc. In the summer of 2010, Charlie moved to the United States of America and started working as a DJ and event producer. Providing clients with high-quality reliable service suited to their needs, Charlie managed to establish his clientele in a very short time, mainly through referrals. And among his clients are a number of celebrities, politicians, large corporations and, of course, many private citizens. Charlie’s experience gained in Europe was essential in developing his organizational and entertainment skills, which include knowledge of audio/video equipment wiring and functions, knowledge of popular music and artists from the 1950s to present, creative beat mixing of two songs/videos together, so the music/video never stops, reading a crowd for music selection, coordinating a function, guest relations, volume control, and more. His up-to-date collection of over 100,000 songs consists of high-quality audio and video files. While Charlie’s wedding entertainment business keeps growing, he continues to work on his own music. Charlie’s instrumental tracks have been featured in independent movies and his first album is soon to be released!
