Soto’s Entertainment handles all special events including Corporate Parties, Weddings, Karaoke, Proms, Teen Dances and Latin Style Events. Because of their versatile style, and ability to make every event a great party, they have often been described as the “ideal entertainment choice” for events.

Over the years, Soto’s Entertainment has earned an exceptional reputation for being personable, professional, organized and “keeping people on the dance floor.” Owner Steffen Soto began his DJ Entertainment business in 1989 in Tampa, Florida . He has performed along popular Salsa Singer “Gilberto Santa Rosa” and Merengue Singer “Bonny Cepeda.” His unique ability to entertain people from all ages and ethnic backgrounds is why they are often selected by Event Planners from North Carolina to South Carolina and other states throughout the USA .

Their hard work and professionalism has earned them bookings with corporate clients like Hilton Charlotte Executive Park, Daetwyler, Hyatt Charlotte South Park, Bank of America, Mercy Hospital, Internet Services Corporation, WJZY (TV 55), Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, Clarke American, BAM Racing (NASCAR Series), Husquarna, Executive Incentives and Travels (Southeast Toyota) over their 24 years of business.

The fact that the owners of Soto's Entertainment are from Puerto Rico, places them in a unique position to negotiate in “two worlds.” They bring an international feel to events and offer bi-lingual (Spanish- English) services which is a definite bonus.

Soto’s Entertainment has a fully qualified staff of DJ’s and MC’s that compliment the owners’ high standards and expectations.

I feel so lucky I found Soto's Entertainment! I was struggling to find a bilingual DJ in Greenville, SC so I ventured out to Charlotte area, and I am so happy I did! Soto's is not only professional and experienced but very well priced. I am Colombian and my husband is American, my biggest wish was to be able to have a Hispanic wedding without secluding anyone. Soto's Entertainment made this happen, the literally broke down any cultural boundary and gave way to an amazing party and everyone understood what was going on. I've had multiple people tell me they had never seen that many people dancing during a reception. The music ranged from everything, salsa, merengue, reggaeton, country, oldies, 90s, top hits, you name it, it was played. It's the way they mixed everything that allowed for a successful night. We also had the traditional "Hora Loca" during my wedding which was a huge success. Props, music and people dancing the entire time!
I should also note, I did EVERYTHING from Greenville, while they are located in Charlotte. Soto's Entertainment was extremely helpful in making the process easy and smooth. Very responsive, every email/question I had was answered within a 24 hour period. Not once was I worried or left without a response. The entire process was through email and phone- per my request, they were willing to meeting up, but it was so easy.
I will be forever grateful to Soto's Entertainment, they allowed me to have my Hispanic wedding in the states, and made it even better because they captured both cultures perfectly. If you want excellent service and professionalism, this is the DJ for you.

Stefan was amazing!! I could not have asked for a better MC for my wedding. He knew how to keep the guests on the dance floor, was flexible with our indecisiveness prior to the wedding, and overall let us enjoy such a special day. He listened to us, and played every song we requested. The guest had a wonderful time, and it was in part to him keeping the party going! He spoke Spanish for our guest who didn't speak English, and made them feel so welcome. He did a great job merging the two families together, and I would recommend him anyday :)

Soto's Entertainment was the perfect choice for my wedding. Stephan was flexible and very helpful with making sure that every part of the event was taken care of. Most importantly he took the time to really find out what type of music my husband I liked and what atmosphere we were going for. I am very pleased with how he handled our wedding and how he played what we requested. I've heard a lot of stories about DJs that simply play what they want or what is popular at the time, but not Soto. Soto's entertainment was very professional and really great value!

Soto's Entertainment is top notch! I can't say enough good things about them nor can the guests that attended our wedding. Leading up to the event, my husband and I previously had a contract with a different vendor for DJ services. Due to their unresponsiveness (we never met with them or heard from them after we signed the contract) we were left with a tough decision to make two weeks before our wedding day. Stress levels were high to say the least. We decided to take our chances and pray that we could find someone else in such a short amount of time.

My husband's family is from Ecuador and my family is from NY primarily. When he contacted Soto’s Ent they were extremely timely in getting back to us. We explained our situation and Steffen Soto offered his services. It is important to note that he moved some things around in his schedule and personally did our event. He quickly set up a time to meet. Prior to meeting he emailed us a contract and templates to fill out to get all of our announcement and music choices. I can't illustrate enough how impressed we were with his service and attention to detail. After we met in person and ironed out the specifics I had a huge feeling of relief. I actually went home got on the phone with my girlfriends and had fun picking out songs and filling in the template.

On the day of the wedding Steffen was early, set up, and ready to go. His presentation is as good as it gets. For those of you who need a bilingual MC – Soto’s Ent should be your top pic. Steffen was so smooth transitioning between English and Español. Both sides of the family were so impressed and nobody missed anything.

Steffen worked closely with our coordinator and checked in with us, as needed, throughout the reception. Shortly before my husband and I were "sent off", Steffen handed us a CD with all of our music selections on it. What could have been a disaster turned out to be an amazing and memorable celebration! I can't thank them enough!

Our DJ, Soto, did such an amazing job at our wedding. We absolutely loved the music he played and the dance party was still going to the very last song. Soto was professional, organized, and also very flexible. You could tell he was very experienced at what he does. He made my reception flow smoothly and I felt so relaxed and calm throughout my whole reception. He communicated with my venue and photographers, I didn’t have to think about a thing. Soto was extremely professional, and I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a wedding DJ.

We hired Soto's Entertainment for our wedding in October, and they were amazing. The owner, Steffen, was very professional, very accommodating, and really took the time with us before our wedding to make sure he knew what kind of music we preferred, and had a good handle on our reception timeline.

On the day of our wedding, Steffen made all of our guests feel very welcome and definitely kept the party going. We also utilized their lighting services, and the uplighting they have really made our reception venue beautiful. The dance floor looks so pretty in our pictures!

We would definitely recommend Soto's Entertainment for anyone who is planning their wedding. Our guests had a great time at our reception, and we owe a lot of the credit to this DJ company. Thank you!!

Steffen did an amazing job from start to finish!! I knew from the moment that we met him, he would be our DJ. My husband and I got married in Charlotte, but we lived about 2.5 hours away. Steffen was very flexible with when and where we met for our first meeting. Additional meetings that followed were all conducted over conference calls so that we would not have to travel. His willingness to be accommodating helped make the process so much easier. Steffen provided music for both our ceremony and reception. The music for the ceremony was perfect. He tailored each song so that it would not last forever and timed it appropriately so that it fit well with ceremony. The reception was awesome. My wedding and reception were held on a rooftop in uptown Charlotte. During the introduction/entrance of the bridal party we had to make a few changes. Steffen adjusted and made the needed changes without any problems. In addition to this, mid way through, it started to rain pretty heavily. In the midst of this, when everything could have gone wrong, Steffen made the announcement that the reception would be relocated to the ballroom so everyone would stay informed. He then loaded his equipment and moved down into the ballroom that we had for a backup. In addition to this, because of the change, Steffen even dj'ed longer than initially planned to make up for the interruption of the rain. All of our friends and families made comments about how great the music was and how much fun the reception was! Everyone was up and dancing!! Steffen fit right in with what we needed...he's not one of those dj's who is in it for himself. He made sure the night was about us and celebrating our wedding. He did an amazing job MC'ing and DJ'ing the event. I would recommend Steffen for any event. His professionalism is beyond reproach. He goes above and beyond to make sure his services are excellent. Fantastic job!!! My husband and I could not have asked for more!!!

We had a great experience with Soto's Entertainment! We used Soto's for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Steffen was very flexible in meeting to discuss our wedding needs and listened to everything we wanted for our special day. Steffen Soto arrived on our wedding day with an assistant, both dressed professionally. Everything went very smoothly. An added bonus is that Soto's entertainment is a bilingual dj service, which was perfect for us since my husband's family is Colombian. They ended the evening by giving my husband and I a cd with songs we had requested to be played during the wedding. If you want a no hassel dj that will listen to you and what you want then Soto's Entertainment is a great choice.

Our experience with Soto’s Entertainment for our wedding was excellent! I was referred to them by a friend that had used their services in the past and I also hired them because they offered bilingual (Latin) DJ-MC services. I am Latin originally from Puerto Rico and my husband is from Charlotte, NC. I am so glad we hired them! They were our favorite vendor for our wedding. Very easy to work with and very professional. The night of our wedding we had a blast! The music was perfect and their bilingual MC services helped out a lot with my side of the family. Everybody had a great time that night. Soto’s Entertainment was the best choice I made for our wedding. I highly recommend them for your wedding too!
Maria & Matthew, 2010!

I got married on November 7th, 2009. The ceremony turned out beautiful and the reception turned out to be the best party I've ever been to. We had Soto's Entertainment as our DJ's and they did a wonderful job! The music was excellent and the way the DJ spoke on the mic was very professional. They were personable, fun and they knew exactly how to handle it all and keep it in order. The DJ had us dancing all night long! All my friends and family had a good time as well. Soto's Entertainment made our night unforgettable!
Thank you!

Soto was great to work with. Everyone in my family loved the music. My Husband and I really liked that some songs people requested he asked us first if we were ok with him playing it.

He did not meet our expectations at the reception. Maybe the music that we selected did not mesh with the DJ we selected. They were very responsive during the entire process. They always emailed us back and verified information and extremely friendly. But, we were a little disappointed in how everything turned out. We gave him a very specific list to play and asked that he take no requests from guests. It could be that we were so distracted by everything going on, but we did not hear a lot of the music we selected and there were several songs that he played that were not on the list. I think that he would have done better with a more Hip-Hop list, but that's just not what we wanted.

We had our wedding on 10/2/10. Everything about the wedding was memorable. Including our mishap w/ the DJ. Overall the guests had a good time. But, there were specific requests for songs given to the owner a mo in advance that weren't played. We had requested a mix of spanish, hip-hop, country, & other music. The DJ played hip-hop and spanish only during the reception. I had requests for songs that he said he had but didn't play b/c he couldn't find them. Our first dance happened in the middle of the reception along w/ the father/daught and mother/son dances. The owner seemed bothered by the fact that I e-mailed him 2 days prior to the wedding w/ songs (currently in radio rotation) that he didn't have and wanted me to bring them. Yet, he had told me he'd be sending me our itinerary two weeks prior to sending it for which I didn't complain. Because we had an early wedding, we scheduled the DJ to end a bit early as well. Our guests were having a good time and weren't going home by any means so we asked the DJ to stay longer. He only stayed one more hour and when I requested a couple hours more he stated no, that he was tired and wanted to go home. At this point, I became really frustrated as I was told by the owner and contract that I had to pay the extra fee upfront and more time would be accomodated. I called and spoke w/ the owner and offered the extra fee payment along w/ a night stay at a hotel and he requested to speak w/ the DJ w/ no avail. My guests were offering to pay the DJ 3x the extra fee for 1 more hour and he would not stay. He pretty much packed up and left. The extra 2 hours would have had him there to 10pm only, along w/ a night stay so he wouldn't have to drive back so far, so late. He was probably tired from the wine he was drinking while the party was going on. I was extremely disappointed. Needless to say the DJ was the topic of conversation the rest of the evening, while music played out of a car's trunk and the following day at the breakfast we hosted. I am still amazed at the extreme lack of customer service, especially on such an important day. If you reserve through Soto's Entertainment, be sure to have a Plan B or reserve extra time just in case to cover your bases.

Isn't weird that a DJ would play songs that are requested as must play during a cocktail hour when neither the bride and groom will be a part of? Funny that we started eating @ 5 when my caterer left @ 6. Which would mean that 45 guests ate their meals and cake w/in an hour including the waiting period in the buffet line...I can admit that everything didn't go exactly as scheduled but what I find even more unproffesional is the owner's response to my review. Considering he wasn't even @ the wedding to begin w/. And if his DJ left his wine on the table then why were his lips tainted from the wine and when I offered him food and cake, he told me that he was all set and content w/ just the wine. Of which neither the bride or groom offered him. & even if someone did offer him liqour, why would he drink it? My review doesn't state that we had a horrible time... I clearly indicate that everything was ok until the request for more time. None of my guests were drunken messes either. How disrespectful to insult us and our guests over a review which credits the good and the not so good. Yes, my guests offered the DJ more than half of the cost of the entire night to stay for an extra hour. Yes, they became frustrated when the DJ said no. Did they say something beligerent...maybe. Not from what I was told since the DJ failed to mention any of this to me or the rest of the bridal party during the wedding. If someone feels that uncomfortable, they should bring it up w/ the bridal party immediately. I was prepared to deal w/ the cracks in the road. Frankly, I'm disgusted at this point and don't want to waste any more of my time. All of this because my review is so called "bad for business." Something Soto's Entertainment should have thought about that evening. Good luck! Don't ever write a review that is "bad for business" or it will ultimately be all of your fault or someone might fault you as being a drunken beligerent bride. It's funny on how Soto calls me a liar when his comment is full of lies and attempts to cover his DJ's rear-end. I would have never thought that someone in the business for so many years would scoop so low. All because I refused to change my review. Nothing he stated below he dared to tell me during our last 45 minute conversation when he attempted to ease my disappointment. Their comments on my review and us as people attest to their own character.

Soto's Entertainment Mobile DJ-MC responded with the following comments:

Hi, this is the owner of Soto's Entertainment speaking. This wedding was handled by one of my DJ's which he's very professional and has many years of experience with weddings. It's very obvious that the bride is backfiring and twisting facts to display that our performance was poor, when in fact, it was the total opposite. We did deliver as promised and met our obligations per what was agreed in our contract. Due to the lack of organization and planning from bride and groom, the schedule did not run as planned and all frustrations mentioned above by the bride only fell back on her poor lack of structure she herself created that day. Let me take a brief moment to describe what occurred that night, and explain in further detail the bits and pieces that the bride decided to add in her review to perceive our inefficiency. Soto's Entertainment was contracted form the hours of 2:00 pm-7PM. Any additional time after that was based upon a dual agreement at the time of the event by the wedding party and my DJ. This is what in my opinion set off the fuse, in which induced the bride and their guest to become very unprofessional and belligerent against our services. My DJ was set up and ready to go before the ceremony time. The ceremony started late on their behalf. The bridal party and bride & groom went off to take pictures. Per the schedule they were supposed to make a formal entrance and proceed with the dances (first dance, mother & son, etc) at 3:45pm. But this did not take place at this time. The bride and groom did not appear by the guests until approximately 5:00 pm. During the time of the pictures a lot of the music that she requested a month back for cocktail was played by my DJ but she missed because they took so long doing pictures and then the bride says that they weren't played. When they did appear for their introduction, they instructed my DJ to only announce their name and not proceed to with dances. My DJ did as he was told. They proceeded after that with dinner. Dinner lasted approximately 1 1/2 hours. During dinner, the bridal party decided to start their toast without notifying my DJ so he quickly had to shut off the background music. As you can see they kept changing things so obviously the schedule did not go as planned originally. After the toast and dinner, my DJ proceeded with the dance music that the bride requested 2 days before her wedding which on our contract it states to have all requests no later than 2 weeks prior to the wedding. Even with the bride's short notice we managed to have all of her songs in which I personally called her to let her know. Then the bride asked my DJ to proceed with the formal dances, and after that with bouquet toss and garter removal. After they finished, they started the dancing music again, and by this time It was around 6:45. My DJ went to remind the groom that they only had 15 more minutes. The groom and my DJ agreed to stay one more hour so the groom was happy. Well when 8pm came around, and my DJ stopped the music, this is when the trouble started. Guest including the bridal party and bride and groom were getting intoxicated and several guest came up to my DJ begging him to stay, because they were having so much fun. They were flaunting money at my DJ. It started to get a little out of control and my DJ was getting uncomfortable. This is the reason why my DJ did not stay any longer but he didn't want to be that direct to the bride about her guests, so he worded it differently. And regarding the wine, this wine was offered to my DJ by them which he left it sitting on his table anyway. What still doesn't make sense to me is that, if my DJ was such a horrible DJ, and our services was so bad, why was everyone begging him to stay longer?
