Rodney has been DJ'ing with Astro since he was 18. "I've always had a love for all types of music, and always been fascinated with electronics. This combines two of my passions... it's the perfect fit." Rodney says that his goal at any event is "to give my clients what they expect from me… a great celebration that is built around their ideas and their taste in music." Rodney can handle all kinds of events but he especially enjoys wedding receptions. "It’s what I do most. It’s what I enjoy. It’s what I do best. I get a huge sense of accomplishment at the end of a wedding reception by knowing that I was able to help create the celebration that my client envisioned." Rodney stays in shape playing softball, hitting the Crossfit gym and playing around with his son, Zane.

From the moment we got engaged, we knew we would be using Astro for our DJ - their whole team is amazing!!! Even knowing that though, could not have prepared me for the INCREDIBLE job that Rodney did. My new husband and I were truly blown away - the dance floor was packed from BEFORE the main food went out, and never stopped all night. My 86 year old great aunt was breaking it down, and our friends that aren't typically big dancers, were on the dance floor THE WHOLE NIGHT - it was a true testament to Rodney's skills. He is most definitely in the right profession. Not only that, but Rodney is fun and easy to work with. He made the whole process stress-free, and while we had a few requests that he played, we left the rest up to him...AND. HE. NAILED. IT. He was totally flexible with a last-minute change in the order of events, and was also a great emcee - got everyone pumped up and he made clear, professional announcements, without sounding the least bit cheesy (as some wedding DJs can). Rodney was such a huge part of making our reception the best night of our lives, and we could not have been happier with our decision to hire him. Thanks again, Rodney!!!
Rodney Charles was hands down the best DJ I have ever seen. He was a consummate professional the whole time, and did absolutely everything to accommodate my wife and I at our wedding reception. Rodney was incredibly talented, and incredibly humble at the same time, which is so very rare. He called my wife and I prior to the wedding, completely understood everything we wanted him to do, and gave us much needed peace of mind. There was never a dull or stagnant moment throughout the whole reception, and he is 100% responsible for that. This is someone we will absolutely use again for future events, and give him our highest recommendation to anyone looking for an outstanding DJ!
Rodney at Astro was the BEST!! For me the most daunting thing during my wedding planning was the music selection! I wish I would have known to just relax because my day was more than amazing with Rodney from Astro! The dance floor was nonstop movin and groovin! There was no cheesy Dj interjections or awkward moments. It was awesome from beginning to end! I will recommend Rodney to everyone! Thanks for making our big day so special!!
Astro was so great for everything we needed. We had Rodney Charles as our DJ for the ceremony and reception, he was so AMAZING. He played everything I asked for and kept everybody on the dance floor. We had day of coordinator services through Pari Smith. I don't even have words to describe everything she did for us. Without her I think I would have had a serious melt down the week of my wedding but she was so open and approachable and handled everything with such grace and ease. She was a blessing. She helped arrange in the last couple weeks a photobooth for us as well to help us create more memories. The lighting done by Rodney was beautiful too. Simple and elegant. You seriously can't go wrong with Astro as they are extremely affordable too.
