Wow! Where to even start? We met with Rob and Joe and immediately signed a contract with them (they were the only DJs we met with), because they were so genuine and personable. They were both very knowledgeable about music and weddings and made our lives easy from day one.
Joe was our DJ for the wedding, so we met with him one other time to plan. Again, he was so approachable, knowledgeable and fun to work with. We felt very confident that he would be fantastic on the day of the wedding. We didn't want to make the playlist ourselves, so we just told him our music taste and goals and he turned that into gold!!!
The music at our wedding was PERFECT and the dance floor was full the entire night! Even while we were dancing, guests were telling us how great our DJ was. How amazing is that!! When anyone asks what our favorite part of the wedding was, we always say "the dancing!"
We would DEFINITELY hire this same DJ and STRONGLY recommend this company to everyone!

Roberto had been the DJ two of my family friends' weddings and did an AMAZING job! So I knew when I was planning my wedding that I wanted to work with his company!! I had Joe as my DJ and I couldn't have asked for a better DJ! He did such a great job at keeping the music flowing and keeping people on the dance floor the entire night!! He was so easy to work with and the on-line programs helped us to slowly make decisions and changes to the music for our wedding. Joe was great at taking requests, while still keeping to my husbands and mine musical taste. By the end of the night everyone was so exhausted from dancing all night!! I would definitely use Joe again as a DJ. I am beyond pleased with how great he did, and everyone keeps complimenting us on how well he did!!

We hired Monastero Entertainment to DJ our wedding reception on September 27th, 2014. Since the owner (Roberto) was actually standing up in his friend’s wedding on our day, another DJ, Peter, was assigned to our wedding.

Working with Monastero Entertainment was an absolute breeze. Pretty much everything you need to plan out your reception can be found on their online web portal. Within the portal, you can select “Must Play” and “Do Not Play” songs from their database. Here you can also select your “First Dance” songs and list your wedding party for when the emcee does announcements to start the night.

As far as add-ons, we took advantage of Monastero Entertainment’s uplighting and their photo booth. The uplighting looked incredible in our venue, and we can’t imagine our reception without it! The photo booth was a huge hit with our guests. Monastero Entertainment provided someone to handle the photo booth to help out the guests and to make sure the pictures were glued in the book properly. An added perk was that a strip of pictures was printed for each member of the group (usually I’ve seen only 1 strip for the entire group, and then you have to fight over who gets to keep it).

Last, but certainly not least, Peter was AMAZING! The dance floor was packed from the moment he opened the floor to the moment the night ended. The way he mixed one song into the next was really impressive and made sure no one had an excuse to leave the dance floor! We can’t even count how many guests commented that our night was the most fun they have ever had at a reception, and we are both positive Peter had a large part in that!

Monastero Entertainment exceeded our expectations as a vendor for our daughter's wedding. The communication lines during the planning process were always open, with meetings and email being prompt and friendly. We built such a trust that we recommended them before we actually heard the final product. And sure enough, their service on our special day was PERFECT. Our guests seemed to get on the dance floor and never leave. The atmosphere was everything we hoped for and Monastero is to be given credit for the success of our event.

Roberto of Monastero Entertainment was one of our favorite wedding vendors. He is AWESOME!

He provided music for our outdoor ceremony. He was also our DJ for the wedding reception. I can't help but say only great things about him and his work. Every time we spoke on the phone or met in person he was so positive and excited. Even on the day of the wedding he was smiling the whole day.

Roberto is responsive, professional, organized, and gives you exactly what you want for your big day. There are DJs who don't listen to the music you request, but Roberto makes a point to play exactly what you ask.

Additional services: Roberto mixed a special track for a choreographed father/daughter dance. We also had uplighting and a photobooth provided by Monastero Entertainment. I would hire Monastero Entertainment again in a heartbeat for any future events.

Thanks Roberto for making our wedding day so special!

A big thank you to Roberto for all his help with the music (planning and execution) for our wedding reception. It was so great working with him and the music turned out awesome! We loved the way he mixed all of the music sets; he was able to combine Indian (Hindi, Bhangra, etc) with some of the old-skool hip hop selections with such ease. It sounded fantastic.

Futhermore, we received so many compliments on how great the music was. (a couple of our guests were planning to leave earlier stayed a bit later because they couldn't stop dancing.) It was a night to remember... :)

We hired Monastero Entertainment to provide DJ services and the Photo Booth for our wedding in August 2014. We were very happy with everything that was provided! Roberto and Joe were a pleasure to work with. They gave us a competitive quote and provided our guests with great service. The music selections were just what we wanted. Our guests said the music was really good and despite the older crowd (ages 35+ ) at our small wedding -- lots of people ended up dancing! Joe really could read the room. A fun time was had by all! We highly recommend Monastero Entertainment.

Robert was a wonderful contact, though he was not our DJ. Our DJ was Joe Delfin and he worked tirelessly with us to ensure our day went smoothly. He helped us pick our songs and made great selections with the music as we asked for only top hits. He also incorporated some older hits for the parents, which they loved!! The night went perfectly and I would definitely recommend them. They provided a photo booth and uplighting for me at a great price and were extremely flexible and friendly!!!!

Roberto knocked this one out of the park. Our caterer (the wonderful Maria Collins at Sweet Baby Ray's) recommended him as they work together frequently. After the first phone call with him, we knew he was the right choice.

Roberto is incredibly friendly, funny, and understands crowds. At our wedding, he had the whole dance floor packed from the first song to the last number of the night. He was incredibly flexible, too - my dad contacted him about making a "megamix" for our father-daughter dance, and he happily obliged. Then a few days later when my husband contacted him about adding on a surprise flash mob for me after our first dance, he got right into the spirit about how he was going to trick me - and it all went off without a hitch!

His music selections were great, he was budget-friendly, and his online system for picking and choosing songs was super easy to use. You can also arrange to meet him in person at his family's restaurant, Monastero's, which has incredible food and makes for a fun night!

I would highly recommend, and more importantly, so would our guests - throughout the night they kept asking my husband and I if they could use him for future events!

I would recommend Roberto for any function. Our party was ROCKIN. He kept everyone engaged the entire night, couldn't have been nicer and, believe or not, sings really well! We had people at our wedding offering to fly him to other parts of the country to be the DJ at their events - he was that good!
