The Name Luke’s has been around since 1979. Luke’s originally started as a Record Store by the name Luke’s Record Exchange, started by Luke T Renchan. As years progressed, Luke T decided to start a Disc Jockey Company in 1983. This was an instant success. Before long, Luke T had eight employees doing events for him.
Many years passed and his son Luke B showed an interest in what his father was doing. At the age of 9, Luke B would accompany his father and observing every move he made. Gradually he was allowed to make steps till he was able to do his own events. At the Age of 15, Luke B started doing his own disc Jockey events without his father and paying an assistant to just drive him until he had received his driver’s license.
Luke’s Record Exchange excelled and required all of Luke T’s time and energy. Before long, he started taking less events and promoting his son more. It was not long until Luke gave the business to his son. Luke T would still do events, but did not have to be concerned with the day to day operations of running a business. This happened around 1997 under the name of Luke’s Disc Jockey Service, and young Luke would take on any type of event, whether it be weddings, private parties, friends parties and eventually some local clubs.
Luke B has become very active in attending DJ conventions, seminars, training to be able to offer his clients the best possible experience. He worked a period of time at Guitar Center to broaden his education and knowledge of equipment. He is also involved with many organizations including American Disc Jockey Association, National Association of Mobile Entertainers, and going as far as starting a local group called the Southern New England Association of Professional disc Jockey’s (SNAPDJ). Besides the DJ groups, he also is involved with the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce, International Special Events Society, National Association of Catering Executives, Rhode Island Hospitality and Tourism Association, Providence Warwick Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, Business networking International, and Countless others.
Now that it is 2016, Luke Renchan Entertainment is one of New England’s top Disc Jockey companies. The team has grown once again with Luke T back on board, since closing Luke’s Record Exchange. Luke’s wife Jen has also joined the family business and helps with office work and events. Jack Hanna, John Catalano, Anthony Avicolli as well as Paul Lucia and hall of fame guest DJ Ray Martinez also make up the team of DJ’s. An office assistant is also on hand and is available Monday through Friday for any questions or help you may need.
Some accomplishments include Luke B as a featured DJ in the National Publication “DJ Times” January 2008. Luke Renchan Entertainment has also been honored by local brides & grooms by “The Knot” Best of Weddings for its disc jockey service since 2008 – 2016. We also received Wedding wire’s “Bride’s Choice” Award for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.

Luke is the best! He provided DJ Services and uplighting for our wedding at Ocean Cliff. Both were amazing. The uplighting really enhanced the beauty of our venue and he had everyone on the dance floor all night long (which was our #1 goal). Everyone had a blast!
Luke and his team were amazing throughout the whole process. Between the planning, music selection and photo booth details not one thing was missed.
My Husband and I chose Luke B. Renchan as our DJ for our wedding. He was the best decision for us. Our wedding was a blast. I knew he was going to blow us away but he went beyond. We had our first dance with dancing in the clouds and it was amazing.
Luke made our day fantastic, special and meaningful from beginning to the end. Luke and staff were prompt, easy to work with and friendly. Luke made our night personal. He provided music, photobooth and beautiful spot lighting onto every table and our cake. I cannot say enough about the quality and workmanship of this company. I would highly recommend them to any type of special event.
