Lucky

circa 1993

Like most teenagers in the Chicagoland area in the 1980’s, it was common to go to the mall. And like most Saturdays, I went to Evergreen Plaza to hang out in JR’s Music Room where I could hear a live DJ playing in the store.

But one particular Saturday, I began my musical journey after seeing the pure power of music. Farley was the DJ that day, and that record store turned into a club! It was at that moment that I knew I wanted to be a DJ.
My name is Darryl but most people know me as Lucky Luciano. I’ve always had a love for music and being a DJ has been a huge part of who I am.

In 1992, when I took a ride to the “Woods” (Maywood) where I witnessed some of the most creative DJ’s that I had ever seen. The way these brothers were putting their music together, blew my mind! And they inspired me to up my game if I had planned to hang around them. And over the years, our camaraderie and genuine love for playing music helped us to form a bond, a brotherhood. We all became a part of something legendary and I couldn’t be more honored to be a Chuck!
