DJ Russ Rich is one of San Francisco’s most versatile DJs. Early on in his DJ career, he became known for his happy and uplifting vocal style. After several years spinning local bars and T-Dances, he graduated to headliner status, playing peak time sets at clubs like “Industry” at Mighty, “Hero” at Ruby Skye, “Colossus” at 1015 Folsom, and “House Party” at Powerhouse. In 2011, Russ won “San Francisco’s Next Top DJ” competition, and in 2013, he won a nationwide contest for Gay Internet Radio Live.
Russ was named Resident DJ for PLAY T-Dance beginning in 2013. When PLAY went on hiatus for a few years, Folsom Street Events booked him as the Resident DJ for “ROUGH.” In addition, he has played for Folsom Street Events at “Magnitude” and “Bay of Pigs” and has spun at both the Dore Alley Street Fair and the Magnitude Stage at Folsom Street Fair. Last year, Russ added “Real Bad” to his list of events, as he headlined the main room at the close of Folsom weekend.
Russ is set to spin Flagging in the Park on June 12 in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco so he will really be ready for us on November 5.
