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, NJ to host an "oldies" night at "Smiles" club in Parsippany.

A leader in the DJ field since then, Gup has specialized in presenting classic dance music from the Swing Era through the 1960's. In addition, he maintains a comprehensive collection of Top 40, dance and party hits from the 1970's to present. His commanding knowledge of Pop Standards, Big Band, early Rock & Roll and Rhythm & Blues makes him a natural choice for those who demand a jumpin' dance floor! Gup has MC'd more than 8,000 performances to date (over 900 of them wedding receptions!) and personally presides over every show he's booked for. He will see to it that your special day goes just as planned! References are available upon request.

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. While the majority of his contemporaries are part-time DJ's, Gup has managed to stay true to his R&B and R&R roots full time for over 40 years! In addition to performing at events, car shows, functions and parties around the country, Gup can be heard on WNTI, WNRJ, and Remember Then radio stations on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays hosting his two radio shows - "Pop Treasury" and "Still Rockin' "! In December, 2019, he ended a 32 YEAR RUN of his Pop, Swing, Early Rock & Roll, and Rhythm & Blues night at the Exchange in Rockaway, NJ - the longest consecutive running oldies night in NJ! From January 2020, Gup's Wednesday nights moved to The Exchange's sister ship - "THE CANAL HOUSE" in Wharton, NJ.

Please see "Gup's Calendar" for all his public dates and details of radio show times.

Gup is married to Lulu (originally from London, England), a professional dance teacher.
