Powell Weddings & Events started in 2003 when a friend asked Russ to borrow his sound equipment for his sister’s wedding. Rather than lending the equipment out, Russ instead offered to go and provide the sound and music services himself.
While emceeing for the wedding, Russ was approached by another couple and asked to provide services for their wedding as well. And from there two more couples, and soon it snowballed into the full fledged business that it is today!
Although it started primarily as a Wedding service, Powell Weddings & Events now travels all over the Wasatch Front, and beyond, making your events unforgettable!
“From the moment we started planning our wedding, we knew that music and dancing were going to be central parts of the day. Finding a DJ who could play a wide range of music, wouldn’t force games on us (because who has time for that when there’s dancing to be done??), and keep our crowd going all night was a top priority. Luckily, we were referred to @powell.event.productions, and Russ killed it at our wedding!”
“Russ made the night amazing. He was there at the ceremony and the reception to help the guests. His planning before hand was impeccable and he was always on top of things and helping us with our big day. We were on the fence about having a live band or DJ and Russ made us forget any thought about the live band because he was so interactive. He also was great with instructions and had such a great attitude and energy with our guests! 100% great pick!”
“We had Russ as our DJ for our wedding and couldn’t be happier with our experience. Long before the wedding he took a very personal approach, meeting with us in person multiple times to make sure he had us locked down as a couple. We provided music we liked as well as some no plays, and we discussed the vibe we were going for at our wedding. Russ even offered for my wife to record a message for her father, which he could splice into the song during their father-daughter dance. It ended up being such a nice touch that brought many at the event – including her father – to tears. Throughout the whole evening, Russ did a great job – from the ceremony to dinner, speeches, and especially dancing. Russ kept everyone happy, energized, and on the dance floor throughout the reception. We couldn’t have been more pleased with him as our DJ and would recommend him for any wedding or event.”
