    Amazing guy and dj

    Russ made the night amazing. He was there at the ceremony and the reception to help the guests. His planning beforehand was impeccable and he was always on top of things and helping us with our big day. We were on the fence about having a live band or DJ and Russ made us forget any thought about the live band because he was so interactive. He also was great with instructions and had such a great attitude and energy with our guests! 100% great pick!

    Great to work with!

    Russ DJ'd our wedding and he did a fantastic job! He was so fun and easy to work with! I don't think we ever left the dance floor and more than one guest said it was the best selection of music they've heard at a wedding. I can not recommend Squawkbox Sound enough!

    Russ at Squawkbox Sound is one of the best! Always happy, positive and knows how to get the party started! I have worked with him at weddings and also have seen him at public events like the Witches Fest each year. He knows his stuff and I am always happy when I see him at events!

    I always enjoy working with Russ. Every time I see him as the DJ, I am so relieved. It is so important to have people who know what they are doing on your wedding day, you really won't understand how important it is until you don't have it. Hire Russ and avoid regret. I can't tell you how many times I have been working, when the DJ's equipment malfunctions, or the microphone doesn't work right, cursing out every third word. I have seen speakers light on fire because the DJ was pushing too much power to the speaker. This is the sort of thing that happens with less experienced DJs. Don't let this be you! Hire Russ, he is your man! Hiring a DJ isn't just about the music. The DJ is single handedly carrying your wedding party on his/her shoulders. The wedding Ceremony is for you as a couple, the rest of the night is a party for the guests. Russ does a fabulous job carrying the crowd. He is an amazing MC and he knows JUST what to play to pull the dancing into a frenzy if it starts to crash. He has a variety of lights, speakers, all professional quality.

    Russ is an awesome DJ and a nice guy. I have worked with him several times over the years and he's always very professional and personable. He uses top of the line equipment and knows how to read a crowd and play the right music. I would definitely recommend him to anyone whose looking for an amazing DJ to make your special event memorable!
