Before becoming a professional Disc Jockey, Russ worked in the radio broadcast industry. He spent over a decade behind the microphone and behind the scenes of major market radio stations. You may have heard him on Alice@97.3, STAR 101(then K101), KABL 960 AM, KISS 98.1 FM, or Jazz 91 KCSM.
Russ started DJing professionally for events in 1996 and left the broadcast industry in 2001 to devote more attention to his DJ clients. He has performed at everything from intimate gatherings of a few dozen people to major events with hundreds of people that were broadcast live on the radio. He has DJ’d at thousands of events and, because of his popularity, his calendar has sold out completely every year since 2000.
He has personally performed for 11 of the Forbes 500 companies, various politicians, Hollywood celebrities, recording artists, and professional sports teams and players.
“It was the greatest reception of all time, the dancin’est reception of all time! Russ was GREAT. Russ is the only way to go, best wedding DJ in the bay area! Very professional, can help with reception timelines, friendly, excellent music choices, and a great emcee. I can’t think of anything we’d change — once again, great job!” — David & Jessica
“Russ had the dance floor packed all night — something I didn’t think was possible without a live band. I can’t say enough good things about his DJ services. I would recommend (with the highest compliments) Russ and Fog City to anyone.” — Mary Jane & Chris
