BIG RUSS—The name, Russell “Big Russ” Gatewood, has been synonymous with the Bay Area music scene for nearly 25 years. His fingerprint can be traced on almost every aspect and genre dating back to the ‘80s. His career began when Hip Hop showed him that turntables could be a musical instrument. He took that inspiration and ran with it, learned the craft from legends, spearheaded a local DJ collective and quickly became one of the more popular DJ’s in the region. As the ‘90s began, he (along with his long time business partner Rick Patrick) formed what has become an entertainment staple in the Northern California, The World Famous Rick & Russ Show. It wasn’t long before they were given the opportunity to live up to their moniker and began playing alongside major recording artists, performing at conventions and expos across the country. Their amazing ability to turn any and every event into celebration could be felt as far away as the U.K., Guam and South America.

C.J. FLASH—-Chris “C.J. Flash” Jourdan is an extremely talented D.J., songwriter, producer, arranger and musician. He produces everything from Hip-Hop to Jazz and is considered one of the Bay Area’s original Hip-Hop pioneers.

His history as a DJ goes back to 1982 when he began experimenting heavily with the turntables. His popularity grew as a party D.J., and earned him a spot on what was then the Bay Area’s hottest underground music show – Music For The People on KALX 90.7FM in Berkeley.

There, he teamed up with dynamic on-the-air personality Natty Prep. The show became the most innovative, ground-breaking music program of the 80’s in the Bay Area . This program also started the career of Hip-Hop Historian Davey D. C.J.’s musical knowledge expanded tremendously during this period. He also discovered he could produce music. Some of his early projects were writing for The Timex Social Club (Rumors), and producing for Raw Fusion (who later joined Digital Underground).

In the 90’s, he teamed up with 2 of the hottest Bay Area D.J. Organizations – The Original D.J.’s & The World Famous Rick & Russ Show. Currently he (with The World Famous Rick & Russ Show) entertain for a number of events
