What more can I really say right here than RUSS IS COMPLETELY AMAZING! I truly don't believe that we could have booked a better DJ. We met with Russ multiple times prior to our wedding day. He is thorough, reliable, a complete pleasure to work with, personable, experienced, and did an incredible job at our wedding and reception. Our guests were thrilled with him! There were plenty of times where I needed suggestions and input from Russ, and he was more than willing to provide us with it. He was especially helpful to work with being my husband was deployed throughout most of the planning process. Russ made the entire experience as stress-free as possible, and gave me the peace of mind I needed through our grand exit on the big day. He is at the tip top of our list of recommendations if anybody is in need of DJ/emcee work. We couldn't be more thankful, Russ. You will forever be a friend of ours.Sent on 10/26/2016

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!
