Hugo, owner, originator and still the main dj for Huge DJ Service & Karaoke, started his entertainment career at the tender age of 5. Born in the "old country" in Guadalajara Mexico, he auditioned for a TV show in his home town and experienced his first taste of performing in front of a live audience in front of the TV camera.
No more than a year later his family emigrated to the U.S. and a myriad of musical opportunity came his way from local TV exposure in the big city of Chicago. From his eclectic mix of musical influences, growing up with Elvis, The Beatles, the classic Motown sound as well as AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd and Frank Sinatra, it became evident that music would be the path he would follow for the rest of his life.
After graduating from high school and having already been entertaining as a singer guitarist in the smokey night clubs of Michigan Avenue throughout his last three years of high school, Hugo continued performing in and around Chicagos Gold Coast. With the entertainment bug hitting him square in the heart, he decided to follow a full time musical calling and quit college at the University of Illinois after only one year there. Working as a full time musician, singing exclusively for the Lettuce Entertainment Supper Club circuit in Chicago, he took a contract as the house singer for Cafe Angelo at the Oxford House on Wacker Drive in downtown Chicago.
Some years later, following a childhood dream,
Chicago's loss was Wisconsin's gain as Hugo decided that he wanted to leave the big city for the greener pastures of Wisconsin where indeed, the grass was truly greener. It was at this point that he joined a talent agency in Milwaukee and formed a rock duo, The Hugo Brothers, with his late brother Eddie as his drummer. With their base out of Milwaukee Wisconsin, they went on the road and entertained audiences from North Dakota down to Nashville and everywhere in between.
