TESTIMONIALS aka...happy clients!
DJ Russo & The Higher Sound has been a supporter of our nonprofit organization, Rock the Earth, for several years and has been hired to spin at a variety of special events and fundraisers. DJ Russo’s catalogue and musical knowledge runs deep, maintaining a sensitivity and awareness to successfully create a soundtrack for a wide-range of special events – from your late night/all night throw-down dance party, to creative and compelling background atmosphere at your high-end, classy dinner party at a top restaurant in which attendees are not your normal 20 and 30 somethings. DJ Russo is our go-to DJ for all of our event needs.

"Before our wedding, my fiancee and I spent quite awhile looking for a newer twist on the the wedding DJ. We wanted someone who would be able to play a wide variety of music and steer clear of the typical cheesy stuff you hear at so many weddings. We heard Derek spinning one night at Hapa and his sound was perfect. We couldn't have asked for more. He did an excellent job and all of our guests were full of compliments (including some raging music snobs)."

Derek, the music was fantastic. I only wish we'd had more time to dance! Working with you on selecting the set list and style of music worked out great, and you turned me on to some great new bands along the way. Not only our peers loved it, but so did our uncles, aunts and parents! I've never danced that hard. So groovy and inventive. Everyone talked about it the day after. Way to go!

Thank you so much for being a part of our special day!! You came highly recommended by friends and I am so glad I listened to them. All of our guests, even Grandma, really enjoyed the music! It was nice to have a DJ with such a vast selection of music. Not only were you able to play all of our special requests, but you really tuned into our guests' and played exactly what they wanted to hear at all times. Thank you for keeping the dance floor packed all night long. We couldn't have asked for anything more!"

Derek is by far the best wedding DJ in Denver. I've been to a few weddings that he's DJ'ed, including my own, and he always has the crowd dancing and having a blast. There's no cheesy dances or lame coreographed chicken dances - just great music that gets everyone in the mood to party. Our wedding wouldn't have been as magical as it was if it weren't for Derek's skills. We'll be forever thankful that he was a party of our special day.

Aside from the vows, DJ Russo was my very favorite part of an entirely magical evening. More than just a wedding DJ, Derek new exactly the songs to play to keep both my grandparents and my best friends on the dance floor all night! Months after the event, people are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding; while, I graciously accept the compliment, I know they are really thanking Derek and my absolutely unforgettable wedding dance party
