Russ was an awesome DJ. I knew write away after booking him that I made the right choice. I love that he only specializing in weddings so I wasn't going to get someone Dj-ing a party! He was very flexible on the timeline of our wedding. He completely took control on our reception and was very organized. Russ is very professional, clean cut and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ!

After a lot of research and much thought, we ended up going with Russ for our DJ & MC for our wedding. He was the only DJ I found that really only DJs weddings and also guarantee’s his work. Without those two things I would have not been comfortable hiring a DJ. All our research paid off, because Russ was nothing short of fantastic. Russ is clearly a very accomplished professional with real sold ethics and a great attitude, which is just what a wedding needs. If it weren’t for Russ I know our wedding would have been no where near as nice as it ended up being. I know the other DJs we were looking at talked a good game, but I know they would have not measured up to Russ. Russ defiantly provides a five star quaintly service like nothing we’ve ever exercised. My advice, don’t wreck your wedding, get Russ.

Everything Russ did from the announcing and coordinating to the music, was done extremely well and professionally. He definitely puts out the best service out there, since other DJs don’t even start to compare with the great work he does and the experience he has. I mean with him doing nothing but weddings for over 25 years, you know he knows his stuff. He even takes extra care and precaution to make sure that everything that might go wrong is prevented ahead of time. Just an amazing DJ and an indispensable part of a wedding. You just won’t know the difference he can make though until your wedding, then you’ll see you that by having him as your DJ that your wedding turned out WAY BETTER than what it otherwise would have. Get him and you wont’ be sorry, even if he costs a lot more, it’s way worth it.

Russ is good insurance for your wedding so that it doesn’t get ruined. More than anything else the reason I hired Russ was that I wanted someone that is ethical. If he charges a little more I didn’t mind, since you can consider it paying for insurance. I wasn’t going to play with things like punctuality, getting the right music, and also making sure I got very good equipment that is not old and outdated. The things that you just should not mess with.

So I personally think the total overall dependability in all aspects of what he provides is where the value really lies the most for me, even though there is a lot of other things your going to get with him as your DJ that are going to be substantially better than other DJs.

Russ made our wedding. I wasn’t about to get a DJ that also does parties and other events. There’s obviously a huge difference between a wedding and other types of parties. So if a DJ didn’t do just weddings he was off my list since I was not interested. That was really the deciding factor on hiring Russ. He really does everything very different than these other DJs. As expected, he did a great job at my wedding. If you’re looking for a DJ for your wedding I highly recommend you hire him. I also recommend you do it before he gets booked by someone else, since he gets booked up way in advance. Thanks for reading my review.

Russ was a godsend, keeping it all together on that day. He did exactly what we wanted with the music and everything, and helped us with some things that that we didn’t even know needed to be done. He knows so much about how to handle a wedding, but after doing weddings for over 25 years, I guess that’s what you can expect. He costs a little more than other DJs, but boy is he worth it. All I can say is, he has got to be the best DJ out there for weddings, I can assume the best in the world. His experience is really invaluable, you just can’t put a price on it. He’s really that good.

Russ was an excellent choice for me and my husband. He’s very reputable and does what he says he’s going to do. This was my second marriage and between me and my family we’ve had eight DJs that have done weddings for us, and by far Russ provides a far more superior service compared to all the other DJs we’ve used for weddings. The fact he does only wedding and that’s all he’s ever done is one very big factor. Also his ethical stance on how to treat people and their wedding by doing all the weddings he books himself and all the other things he does to ensure his reliability and quality is something that you just can’t always get no matter how much you spend, and my family has spent and wasted a lot of money on some pretty lousy and not so great DJs.

Russ is a real professional and that’s what you need for your DJ. I know for a fact that very few DJs are true professionals with this work, even though a lot act like they are. I know from my family’s weddings’ in Chicago, that out of eight weddings, there was only one where the DJ was really a professional with DJing and MCing weddings and it made all the difference with the world. Sure he charged more than other DJs, but that’s what you can expect to pay which is a professional fee. If you’re not paying a professional fee, then that’s a tell tell sign that you’re not getting a professional. I didn’t care about the photographer because today with digital photography, anyone can take good pictures. I can’t imaging wanting to watch a video of my wedding over and over, so we didn’t get a video guy. I didn’t waist money on a photo booth either, since it’s just a trendy thing right now and in a few years it will be considered a hokey or tacky thing to have at one’s wedding. Actually I think it’s already now being considered a bit hokey. We even went without a cake and nobody cared. Just get a professional DJ and don’t go crazy on the other things like that, since they won’t really matter. That’s what that one cousin of mine in Chicago did who had the great wedding, so I learned from her. Only the DJ is going to make the difference with your wedding and Russ really did make the difference with my wedding, since he is the real deal, a real professional. I can really say that if you’re able to hire Russ for your wedding, you’re going to be very happy you did.

We really appreciated all the work Russ did for our wedding. My two best girlfriends spent so much on their wedding, but when they budgeted for their DJ they went with an average priced DJ and it showed. I felt so sorry for them. It was pretty bad to the point where they were both really embarrassed and I was embarrassed for them. It was sad too, since their wedding would have otherwise been really nice except their Djs really messed the whole wedding up. Having Russ for our wedding with how professional he is really did make a very big difference. We are extremely pleased with the way he handled everything and of course I didn’t have to endure being embarrassed at my own wedding.

Before my wedding I knew the that the person we would end up hiring as our MC and DJ would be the single most important part in determining how well my wedding would end up turning out and what the style of my wedding would end up being. After a thorough and exhaustive search for the perfect MC and DJ, I finally ran across Russ. He’s completely different in every way. He ended up costing more than most of the other DJs, but what a worth while difference it made in the outcome of my wedding. He was the best investment in my wedding that I made. Without his input, my wedding would probably just ok, but he made a significant impact. His voice and tonality were perfect, and the style of the wording he used were perfectly appropriate for a wedding. His persona and professionalism came through in his voice to make my wedding feel like a real quality event. He played all the music selections we asked for and seamlessly worked them together. You can tell he really cared how everything went and really knew how to handle everything that came up. He’s a very sharp and skilled professional. Would I recommend him? Yes I would without any hesitation.
