DJ Chauncey D has been a sound selector for just about every queer bar in New York City throughout his 20-plus year career from The East Village to The West Village and beyond from Rockbar to Nowhere, Hell’s Kitchen, and Brooklyn. An eight-time Glam Award nominee, he has provided the soundscape for The Urban Bear Street Fair and Folsom Street East as well as hosting his annual Madonna Worship Night celebrating its 15th year! In 2020, he brought his notorious party to Lisbon to coincide with her Madame X Tour stops in Portugal.


Since 2013, Chauncey has enjoyed a residency at the legendary Stonewall Inn as in-house tech and DJ for drag shows, cabaret performances, parties, and more. Aside from DJing, he produces a monthly variety show called “Freak Out” and has teamed up with Montreal pop star Van Hechter to release an EP on original tracks available on Spotify and wherever else you find your music.

Throughout the years he has lent his talents and platform to countless fundraisers and causes and is one of the producers of the annual New York Dance Parade and Festival each May.

DJ CHAUNCEY D, a loud and proud Jersey Boy (and not ashamed to say it), first added those two letters “D” and “J” to his name back in 2002 at Urge Lounge in New York City’s East Village. DJ CHAUNCEY D is self-taught and that is what has created his most unique sound, style, and sensibility.  Most famous for his Annual Madonna Worship Parties, Chauncey has the much-heralded ability to pull together a full spectrum type of show, gathering local NYC musicians, drag queens, and performance artists paired with his exciting setlists of popular tunes and rarities to create a magical and unique experience for anyone who attends his events.

DJ CHAUNCEY D has supplied the… sleazy soundscape for many of New York City’s gay “hot spots” such as: Beetlejuice@ Nowhere (his own monthly produced party), Boysroom, Daddy @ Vlada, GRUFF @ The Eagle, Hugs, Stonewall, Sugarland (Williamsburg, Brooklyn), The Chapel @ Limelight, The Cock, The Dugout, Woof! @ View Bar, and Woof! (Philadelphia) and many more!

DJ CHAUNCEY D’s taste in music is constantly expanding along with his professional music resume. His insatiable need to share brand-new musical discoveries is only matched by his love for New Wave, Disco, and the Classic House that served as the soundtrack of his arrival on the New York City club scene in the mid-90s.
