Russ has always loved music...
From standing in the living room, pretending to conduct the orchestra as a toddler, to playing in multiple bands growing up, Russ has always had a love for listening to, making, and playing good music.
He got his start as a DJ in 2003 - DJ'ing for his friend's sister's wedding. While there he met another couple who were impressed with his charisma and unabashed ability to engage the crowd, and leading a line dance when necessary, they asked him to DJ their wedding as well.
From there it snowballed as he honed his craft both on the microphone and behind the mixer to create the professional sound and music services that Squawkbox Sound represents today.

Russ was the perfect asset to my wedding as the DJ. He kept the crowd entertained and motivated. He kept me on track better than my own wedding planner LOL. He did such a great job at my wedding I've had him DJ a few other events as well. Highly recommend and Looking forward to the next adventure working with Russ!!
"Russ has done many events for our school- dances, parties etc. He's always prompt, entertaining and accommodating to our requests. One time we had a Daddy Daughter dance and the Dads weren't participating much- then I asked Russ for ideas on how to get the Dads involved, next thing I know there's a dance circle on the floor with Russ in the center! Everyone loves how energetic, charismatic and fun he is. Hiring Russ is a no brainer if you want a successful event."

Russ was incredible! From the beginning he wanted to make sure everything was perfect to the day of the wedding and made me stress free. Russ was awesome about getting the crowd up and dancing and he showed us a few dance moved himself, which we loved! I would hire Russ again without even thinking about it! Everything was perfect! When I have friends telling me they are engaged , I always recommend them to Russ! You won't be dissapointed with his work!
I've been rocking out with the crew from Squawkbox Sound at every event they have DJ'd at @gardnervillage for 8 years now. Russ has the energy of a 5 year old!!! We have so much fun and they offer a great variety of music. I even had them DJ my sons sweet 16, they helped make it a perfect party!!!
