About Us

BuStop Promotions was founded by Russ Harness in September 2009 with it’s first event taking place at Montgomery Hall, a theatre in Wath-upon-Dearne, Rotherham.
The theme of the event was a Soul Motown Night with a live Tribute Motown act called”The Gillettes” headlining and “Top Secret Roadshow” 2 Deejays playing all
The Soul and Motown hits.
Russ Harness is well grounded in the music business with many appearances on TV
and Radio going back to the late 60’s onward. Has toured with his band “Heads Together” with the likes of “The Real Thing”, “James & Bobby Purify” to name but
a few. Russell is also a  songwriter, keyboard player and vocalist and still entertaining today under the name Russell T. Bird.
Russ’s experience as an events co-ordinater at Sphinx Management from the late
90’s to early 00’s supplying entertainment to the Military Bases around the UK has
given him a good grounding in promoting events.
