The Heartwarming Tale of CHKLZ: How A Lost Dog Named Chuckles Sparked A Touring DJ Duo

CHKLZ is making waves with an explosive lineup of shows in 2024. Their vibrant performances are more than concerts—they’re full-blown celebrations of community and joy.

At every event, fans, affectionately known as ‘Doggies,’ come together, creating an atmosphere that feels like a big family gathering. The highlight of their setlist, the crowd-pleasing “White Wine Spritzer,” never fails to get everyone dancing. This track, a high-energy anthem, captures the essence of CHKLZ’s infectious sound.

The genesis of CHKLZ is as heartwarming as their music. Their name was inspired by a small, white dog named Charlie, found on a sweltering Fourth of July in Phoenix. Rescued from under a truck, Charlie, or “Chuckles” as he was fondly called, became a symbol of the group’s ethos: inclusivity, resilience, and joy.

This spirit shines through in their music, which combines intricate rhythms with live effects, creating a sound that’s both innovative and engaging.
