Todd Hutchinson, aka “DJ ActRight” has been a well-known star in WV for most of his life. But it didn’t start out in the world of music at all. Although he always had a love for music in general… his High School and College life was all about basketball! Todd was an All-State basketball player at Winfield High; and continued his storied athletic career as a WV State University “Yellow Jacket.”
“Hutch” (as he was most commonly referred to then… and in some circles, even now) played basketball four full years for WV State. And graduated in 2011 with a BS in Physical Education. But shortly after graduation, in 2012, through circumstances of complete happenstance, “DJ ActRight” emerged as Hutch’s alter-ego!
DJ ActRight quickly transitioned the same energy and passion he had for basketball – into his new love: spinning music! In only 8 years, the artist formerly known as Todd has burst onto the DJ scene, and has become a well-known “public personality” through his endeavors with both the WV Power Baseball team… and formerly on the airwaves of Charleston’s 98.7 “The Beat.”

Q: What’s your favorite thing about BRAVO Live DJ? (Why do you want to be a party of the BRAVO Live DJ family?)
A: “There are really three things that I love about BRAVO Live DJ. I love the professionalism of our company – and the brand that it’s allowed us to create. I also love how easily accessible everyone on our team is – from the owners, to every single DJ. If one of us needs something – someone else is always there to help. Finally, it makes me feel secure that we’re just a family of good people… and I think that’s expressed our “Rising Tide Values!”
