Victor Chatman, President/CEO, Victor Chatman Productions NASHVILLE, TN — Victor Chatman’s story is one of intention, influenced by early exposure to sound and rhythm through his mother who’d play blues, R&B and Motown hits on the 8-track on Saturdays.
He won his first dance contest at a party where he saw a deejay spinning live. Watching Soul Train and American Bandstand as a kid, he thought, “Man, I’d love to be an emcee and deejay, to have people dancing and having fun like that,” he recalled.
Chatman began his entrepreneurial foray at 15. Noting he “never wanted to be limited in a nine to five job,” he bought equipment and deejayed at parties and proms, traveling around the state and networking. When he graduated he’d become well-established, working celebrity weekend charities for major league sports players, corporations, and record labels.
His entrepreneurial mindset developed early. While friends worked factory jobs after graduation he was running toward his goal of creating a DJ, event planning, sound-lighting production company that would be an “all-in-one operation,” he said. “I was bound and determined that I was going to be a well-known deejay across the country.” He did just that. “I knew that my passion, God-given gifts and talent were going to make room for me.”
Chatman, who will soon launch a series of internet radio stations and podcast, has been a multi-genre syndicated radio personality on iHeart Radio, Cumulus, Radio One, Cox, and numerous others. He’s spent four decades promoting, producing and booking artists and events throughout the country.

The 13 year Brown Bag Lunch Special Concert Series is held in annually in Centennial Park The 2nd year "Jazz,Blues,Soul Concert-Dinner-Cruise" and 7 year " A Jazzy Christmas on the Cumberland aboard the General Jackson Showboat", with corporate partner Gaylord Entertainment, is a favorite with area residents, tourists, and music aficionados alike. VCP continually helps brings millions into the economy by leveraging new corporate and small business partnerships that produce Strategic Branding, Marketing, Networking and Collaborative Business Opportunities, His reach has expanded into over 40 U.S. markets and abroad where numerous conferences, concert series and festivals are formed. All of these events help benefit continuing music education programs for youth and many other charitable organizations.
He’s part of the reason the musical landscape of Nashville is being recognized for more than honky-tonk; Jazz on the Cumberland Concert Series is nationally ranked as the number one destination for jazz in Nashville for the sixth consecutive year, an honor that Chatman doesn’t take lightly.
He’s also a Business Pencil Partner with the Pencil Foundation, (MNPS) Nashville Metro Public Schools. and The Academies of Nashville. Chatman conducts internship, externship, and job shadow opportunities for elementary to high school students. Students engage in real-life experiences. in the pathways of hospitality tourism, marketing, digital design, audio engineering and promotions. This also includes a continuing youth education program in S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Music) and a Youth DJ School. All these lead to developed Skill Sets, Job Readiness, and College Preparedness for the students before and upon graduation.
“That’s what gives me the greatest joy, to know that I’m impacting lives every day and getting to make a difference in the lives of the kids coming through the ranks that generally are just lost. Some of them are in pathways that aren’t even their strong suit, they’re just there because they were put there.”
He suggested parents should support their children in their passions, not direct them to the most marketable jobs.
It turns out embracing those passions often translates into other areas of development. “When kids are actually doing something that they’re really passionate about, it carries over into better behavior at home and improved test scores at school,” he said, noting parents and teachers have relayed the improvements to him.
“People won’t always remember what you said, but they remember how you made them feel. So when you make these kids feel like they’re wanted and needed and that they matter, it makes a difference. The reward is being able to see these kids that we mentor actually get to have a hope and a purpose that they generally wouldn’t have had before.
