Rico Mangram from Monastero Entertainment provided music and fun for our reception. He's a professional Salsa dance instructor as well; at our request he taught our guests a 15 minute lesson. It was the funniest/greatest 15 minutes ever! Our crowd couldn't get enough of his wonderful personality + his excellent song choices. We had a packed dancefloor from beginning to end. Roberto and his team say they're going to do something and they go beyond what is promised. We couldn't have dreamed of a better night!

So happy we used Monastero Entertainment for our wedding! Roberto met with us in person twice and made sure we were 100% comfortable and happy - great customer service all around. John C. was our DJ and did an amazing job keeping the dance floor packed all night! Would recommend them to everyone we know looking for a DJ!

I would book Rob 100000 times over!! He is absolutely amazing...all of our guests commented on how perfect the music was. He even sang during our moms dance and blew everyone away. We gave him only a slight guideline of the type of music we wanted, but other than that he felt the vibe/energy of the guests and went with it. Incredible doesn't even describe the night. Rob is so much fun, so talented, energetic, professional..everything you want in a DJ for your wedding day. Everyone was on the dance floor, young and old! I would HIGHLY recommend him!!!!

Absolutely outstanding!! From the beginning planning stages to the very end of the night, Roberto's professionalism, raw talent, and incredible personality were showcased. He honestly has to be the best DJ that I or our entire guest list has ever experienced, and that is not a hyperbolic statement. Every guest at some point during the evening congratulated us on our marriage, but RAVED about the DJ. He just killed it. His website was super easy to navigate, and I was able to pick key songs we wanted played, as well as songs we definitely did not want played. We had a specific genre of music to be played during dinner, but everything else we just left in his hands, and we could not have been happier. At least 95% of our guest list closed out the night, all due to the music Rob was playing, and the atmosphere he created. He played just the right lengths of a song, and then seamlessly mixed in the next with a perfect balance of energy throughout the evening. He can masterfully read a room, and our wedding would not have been the same had he not been there. For an incredibly conscientious, accommodating, and professional DJ, you would be remiss to select anybody other than Roberto of Monastero Entertainment. Bravo!!

Roberto is hands down the best DJ in the Chicagoland area! He is an absolute joy to work with and I could not have asked for a better vendor for the day of my wedding. I gave Roberto pretty much complete control of the wedding reception and he did not disappoint. It was so amazing to work with a vendor that I had zero concerns about and needed no assistance the day of the wedding. He made the planning process stress-free. The music, lighting, and flow of the reception was nothing short of perfection. Many of our guests even asked for our playlist! (Which we had to say we did not have one since Roberto played what he felt the room would like). You cannot get a better DJ than Roberto!

Let's start from the beginning, shall we? We had our wedding on November 7 and booked Monastero Entertainment in February. Roberto and his team all went out of their way to accommodate our crazy schedules so that we could be comfortable with who would be working our wedding. We ended up having John C. as our DJ for the ceremony and reception and he was the perfect fit.

On to the day-of. John arrived with all of his own equipment and immediately knew who to ask questions to -- not the bride (me). He went straight to our coordinator and he was ready to go. He set up his own equipment and took the initiative to make sure our keyboardist and officiant were set up comfortably. We also used their uplighting for our venue and it was perfect - I also must add that it is some quality equipment... I don't know how many people accidentally ran into those lights as the evening went on.... There were no glitches (that I knew of!) and everyone had an amazing time with John as the DJ. He even came out and sang our last song of the evening, "Take Me Home, Country Roads," with us.

Overall, Monastero Entertainment is INCREDIBLY professional and really handled their own shit (excuse my language, but it's true) - we never once had to remind them who we were or the date of our event... We met with them, checked in a couple times to make sure we were on track, and they showed up on time. I will definitely refer them to anyone who needs DJ services.

We were fortunate enough to have them for our wedding! They did a great job discussing details before the wedding and the wedding reception was amazing. We felt they did a great job reading the crowd and played an excellent combination of music. We highly recommend them!

We had Joe as our DJ and he was completely amazing!! In the months leading up to our wedding Joe was helped us gather a timeline for the big day. He was extremely helpful in getting everything organized, from music to speeches to even timing of food courses. His style of music was everything we expected and more. He started with some oldies earlier in the night and moved on to top 40 as the night went on. He also stuck to our "do not play" and "must play" lists. Everyone had a blast and our guests all complimented us on our DJ at the end of the night. We also rented the photo booth from them, which was also great. They gave us a copy of every photo in a book at the end of the night. Overall, a great experience and I would recommend Joe to anyone out there. As a side note, we hired Monastero because we were really impressed by Roberto at another wedding we attended. Overall, a great team, couldn't be happier.
