Roy Courtney

Lead DJ

Roy is our DJ with the sexiest accent. He's from the UK so pretty much anything he says sounds fantastic to us. Matter of fact, we already have a new favorite word from him: "Jolly-Ups," which is a party in the UK. He DJ'ed in the UK before meeting his wife and moving to the US. Thankful for us, he landed here in Charlotte. He's a stand-up guy in every definition. He works full-time for Make-A-Wish, which says alot about his character right there. When we first met him, it was at an event with Make-A-Wish, and Roy asked if he could volunteer with CDJP at events. As wonderful as free labor sounded, we quickly learned having Roy on our team as a Lead DJ would be even better.


He's dedicated, driven & kind. He's a great listener, leader and man of character. We're lucky to have him and know he'll help create some incredible "Jolly-Ups" of your own!


What song best desribes you...

Everybody Needs Someboy (Blues Brothers), Party Rock Anthem (LMFAO) or Yeah (Usher). It's too hard to pick just one! 


If I were a singer in a band, I'd be...

...Freddie Mercury. He knew how to entertain a crowd...and he's British! 


What's the worst hairdo you've ever had?



If I'm your DJ, I promise I won't…

...make a decision without your input or pretend to know more about your special day than you do.  


What's your go-to dance move?

Raise the Roof.  


What's your strongest trait as a DJ?

I believe in getting to know clients as well as possible so that on your special day, you have a tailor-fitted celebration experience.


What's your favorite sport?  



Favorite teams?

Orlando Magic.


Favorite activities beside DJing?

Hiking, Kayaking, Volunteering & taking our three dogs on a new trail. 


Your favorite part about DJing a wedding or event... that moment when the bride, groom and everyone on the dance floor have their hands in the air and singing at the top of their lungs along to the song...or when people don’t want to go home and start chanting for one more song...or when people are thinking of getting a drink or about to sit down but then they hear the next song kick in and they make that "ohhh" noise and turn back around to the dance floor! There's so many great moments that we get to be a part of!


Your funniest DJ memory... when some groomsmen were lifting up the groom to Jump Around and nearly put his head through the low ceiling! 


You're too old to... never get too old! 


You're too young to...

...stop dancing. 


Everyone asks the DJ what their favorite song what's yours?

Smashmouth's "All-Star."

Carolina DJ Professionals is absolutely amazing!! Seriously look no further for your dj, book them now! They are extremely professional, organized and helpful! Every step of the way Troy and his team were so helpful and really put our minds at ease! Each time we left a meeting with him we were just so overly happy with our decision to go with them. They seriously know what they are doing and will make it super easy for you and you will be super happy with the outcome. I really enjoyed all the things they provided us with like the timeline that they talk with you about to figure out what to do when during the wedding, spreadsheet of music to choose from, detailed information sheet about your wedding.


They pay very close attention to detail and it really shows when they dj your wedding. We had people complementing Carolina DJ Pros all night and saying how much fun they had at the wedding and that was all thanks to CDJP and their great sense of people and how the crowd is doing. I am an extremely organized person and was very very picky when it came to choosing my DJ and I can seriously say that I made the absolute best choice by choosing Carolina DJ Pros!! They are really there for you and only you! I cannot say enough great things about this company!! Do yourself a favor and book this company! Set up a meeting with one of their amazing DJs and you will see all the amazing things I'm talking about!!
