Chumlee of ‘Pawn Stars’ now a bonafide deejay


Before Chumlee of “Pawn Stars” fame got on the turntables at Ghostbar Dayclub at the Palms, his publicist admitted that he was nervous. On Saturday, Chumlee, whose real name is Austin Russell, said he took some deejay classes and tried to “practice, practice, practice, that’s all you can do” before his first-ever set at the club.
He brought 50 of his closest friends, including his co-stars Rick Harrison and Corey Harrison to the club on the 55th floor of the resort. His hour-long deejay set included hip-hop anthems from French Montana and Jay-Z remix.

Before he even set foot in the club, TMZ released some of the specifics from his talent rider, which included requests for Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties Girl Scout cookies, promises fulfilled by the club.

Chum promises more performances on the wheels of steel in 2015.


Earlier, he hosted a meet and greet at Social at the Palms, where he bumped into Nick Lachey, host of VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz,” who was celebrating a friend’s bachelor party with pals including former NFL quarterback Matt Leinart.

Later on Saturday night, Chumlee headed over to Tao Nightclub at the Venetian to celebrate his deejay set with friends.
