Josh Ruby, “DJ Bravo”
Josh founded BRAVO Live DJ in 2004, operating as a singular, part-time DJ. Although he always took it seriously from the beginning, and concentrated on offering a high-quality performance to all of his clients… It was six years before he even considered doing more with DJ’ing than just earning a “side income.” But in 2010, as business had grown quite a bit organically, both in volume and in market area… Josh decided it was time to see what the mobile DJ industry could really offer. Through the help of a reputable Business Coach, he developed (and worked) a two-year plan, before finally exiting traditional “Corporate America” for good, in 2012.
During that two-year developmental period, Josh began to focus on recruitment of the area’s other DJ talent. By 2013-2014, the BRAVO Live DJ family had grown to 4 – 5 consistent DJ’s… and the rest is history! Now, with a team of 8 “real” Pro-Mix DJ’s… BRAVO Live DJ performs over 200 shows annually and has an in-office staff of two. Josh states with excitement, “We’ve definitely become the largest, most recommended mobile DJ company in our tri-state area – and we’re growing all the time! The sky’s the limit!”
Josh has been married to the beautiful Christy Ruby for 24 years. In 1992, through a chance meeting in a hospital waiting room, Josh & Christy quickly became lovestruck teenagers. They now share four children – 3 boys & 1 girl (2 of which are adopted). Born and raised primarily in St. Albans, Josh has since made Putnam County his family’s homestead. The Ruby’s now live in Scott Depot, WV – close to their Hurricane business office. When asked what his favorite thing about Christy is, he did not hesitate to say, “Just how much loves me… and puts up with me!”
