Joe and Roberto were hands down the best music ever at a wedding or party - and the fact that it was at our wedding was the BEST! Joe was - I can't say this enough - amazing! Everyone stayed on the dance floor all night and it flew by. Not even the smell of flaming donuts or late night Italian beef could get people off the dance floor. I have people still calling and texting saying it was the best.
Ceremony was beautiful, the wedding party intros were so fun, and the blending of all our favorite songs kept people jamming well into the night. We will definitely always give your names as a recommendation in the future to family and friends - and now we want to do it all again!
You guys made our night and we will always remember it. thank you so much.

Its been two weeks since our reception and I'm still getting texts from people letting us know how awesome our DJ was! Roberto is a master of his craft. He reads the crowd perfectly. Not only did he make sure our dance floor was packed the entire night, but he was incredibly gracious to our guests as well. He collaborated with my husband to sing our first dance song, which was a wonderful surprise. He took the time to find some great versions of songs that are sentimental to my family. And, he hooked us up with a three-piece jazz band for our cocktail hour. Those personal touches made all the difference.

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!

I should have written this long ago, but better late than never :-) Rob did our wedding back in September and he did an amazing job! I knew he would be great to work with, however, from the moment we first spoke with him. Rob is such a warm, kind, and genuine person. He really listens to what you want for your big day and is very responsive. Despite our wedding being on a Sunday, Rob had everyone out on the dance floor, having a great time! So many people came up to my husband and I during the wedding to compliment us on our DJ and rave about the music. I would recommend Rob for any wedding. Not only is his pricing fair and affordable, he's such a pleasure to work with!

Roberto is the epitome of fun and happiness, so who better to have be a part of our wedding, a day that we wanted to be the happiest of our lives? Roberto went above and beyond to make that happen, he was so easy and joyful to work with. From the first time my husband and I met with Roberto to discuss our wedding music ideas, we knew he was the DJ for us. Roberto truly loves what he does and that translates seamlessly into his work, which you can easily tell from one conversation with him! We had him DJ both our wedding ceremony and reception, and he perfectly tailored it to us. I thought our requests were a bit outlandish, from Beatles instrumentals as our ceremony music, Disney songs for dinner, and a wide array of music from the 70s-2000s for the reception, but he did it perfectly! Roberto had our guests on the dance floor until the very end of the night, including some older family members who I didn’t even know had dance moves! We had a few guests at our wedding who DJ, one who even does so professionally (for the nightlife scene), and they all were wanting to talk to Roberto to tell him how impressed they were with his work! He is simply the best with his ability to create the most fun, energetic environment possible. I absolutely cannot imagine my wedding day without Roberto or Monastero Entertainment!

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!
