Track record is the most important thing when booking a DJ. You can read reviews from our past clients on our website www.squawkboxsound.com If a company doesn’t have a good track record, then it doesn’t matter how long they have been in business or how many songs are in their music library!

Anybody can show up to an event and play music. We go the extra mile by consulting with you beforehand to ensure your event is how YOU would like it to be, not somebody else. We will customize your event to how YOU want it. We also have all of our music library sorted for easy browsing so that your guests can make requests.
Although weddings are our specialty, we have done many other types of events including company picnics, church dances, anniversary parties, birthday parties, youth and school dances, holiday events and parties, and many more. We just finished DJing the "Wee Witches Weekend" and "Witches Night Out" at Gardner Village, as well as their Moonlight Madness Beach Blast!

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
What is your usual attire?
We always dress "wedding-appropriate", even if it's a casual wedding.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
If it's an easy one for us to find, we will find it for them.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, and we encourage it! If desired, we will meet with you before you decide to book us, and we also meet with you 2 to 4 weeks before your wedding to go over all the final details to make sure your wedding is how you envisioned!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes definitely! Knowing what you do NOT want to have played is just as important as knowing what you WANT to have played!!!
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We can make a digital audio recording of your ceremony, toasts, etc. and put them on a CD for you. 
 
 We also have a small light setup at no extra charge.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
If a table can be provided, it's preferred, but we always bring a table with us as a backup.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
It depends on what the couple wants. We can be as much involved as the client wants us to be.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We will ask around at the guests' tables what they would like to hear, and encourage requests if the couple has allowed us to do so.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Because we work in DJ teams, we do not require a break at all, no matter how long we are at your event.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
We do not take breaks. There will always be somebody there to run the sound system.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
If it's in Salt Lake County, there is no travel fee.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$50 booking fee, and the rest of the amount is due by the start of the event.

To quote The Beatles, "A splendid time was had by all!" The Powell's did a fantastic job of making the music, from the wedding, to the reception, to the grand exit, uniquely ours. They gave us a run through of the music beforehand, and when something didn't sound quite right, they were responsive to change it. Our Best Man thought Russ was one of our wedding guests because he was so friendly and at ease! Thanks for making our special day even greater!

Michelle and Russ were the best DJs we could have asked for! They did my brothers wedding and my whole family loved them that we just had to have them for mine! They did everything me and my fiance asked for (even the things my parents were specific about). They helped everything flow so smoothly we couldn't have asked for anything better! I would recommend them to anyone!

I cannot say enough about these guys!! If I could give them a 6 out of 5, I would. They made my wedding! Everyone commented on how much fun the DJs were. Your wedding is not complete without Russ and Michelle there!! The music was perfect, every little detail I asked them to do was done, and done perfectly. So stop looking for a DJ and go book them now! Before its too late!

You won't find a better DJ team in Utah! We couldn't be happier with our choice. Russ and Michelle are a GREAT team, and all of our guests remarked how fun they were. Russ even got into a breakdance competition with my brother (he asked first, though, if it would be ok). They are extremely professional, organized, and nice people. Hire Squawkbox, you won't regret it!!!

Squawkbox Sound is the most professional and thorough DJ service I have ever worked with. They are great to work with, very personable, and provide so many different options it will shock you how inexpensive they are priced. If you use anyone but Squawkbox you're paying too much and not getting enough. These guys know there stuff and will take care of you like it's their own wedding day. I highly recommend them.

I give them a million stars! What a terrific couple! I love these people and I still keep in touch with them because they are just wonderful people. Michelle knows what it feels like to be a bride and she helped me out with a lot of great ideas on how to organize the songs/events. They are really down to earth, I love them to pieces. I'm just sad that I didn't get our picture taken with them. Our guests raved about them when my husband and I got back from our honeymoon. Michelle & Russ, thank you, THANK YOU!

Our DJs were the BEST!!!! They went above and beyond our expectations!!! I had many people comment on how awesome they were doing and how amazed they were at how much they were doing!!! After the ceremony we were moving the chairs around to the tables so everyone could eat... we planned on having all the grooms men and the best man do that.. I spotted our DJ helping out... he also was killer cool and helped save my aisle runner... without me even asking. he cut off the nasty dirty parts and kept the rest... also when it was time to "cut the cake" we had cupcakes and he insisted on finding a knife so we could cut the cake... he also gave a little speech about the story behind the meaning of CUTTING THE CAKE. They helped out so much, we cannot believe that they were so helpful and so in our price range... Other DJs were easily $900 bucks for six hours... these guys were there for almost 9 hours and they were only $375... so we got a killer deal and they were SUPER AWESOME!!! I would HIGHLY recommend these people to EVERYONE... we had many things go wrong that night and it seemed that it was our DJ's quest to make everything go right... we really loved them and appreciate everything they have done... they also have a cute welcome type packet, filled with all kinds of neat things... and also a thank you packet with a copy of the songs they played... which were all the songs that we requested... they only played music that we wanted! Not once did I hear a song that we didnt want played!!! So it was PERFECT!!! they were killer cool and would HIGHLY recommend them!!! They will go above and beyond your expectations, they did ours!!!
