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.

It was a pleasure working with Steffen Soto from Soto’s Entertainment Mobile DJ-MC. He met with us several times to make sure our day and the song selection was exactly what we wanted. Our reception was a blast and he did an excellent job keeping everyone on the dance floor. We're still getting comments from guests about how fun our reception was and compliments on the music selection. I was sore the next day just from all the dancing! I would recommend Soto’s Entertainment Mobile DJ-MC to anyone looking to have a great time! Thanks again Steffen :)

Soto's Entertainment was awesome! We just had a twenty-something 'millenial' style wedding and Steffen handled it like a pro! He worked with the bride and groom to orchestrate their music choices throughout the ceremony, from entrance to the dances and beyond. During the party he kept the music flowing so that there were people on the dance floor the entire night, Classics, rock, disco, hip-hop - there was something for everyone and not a single person was bored. We had more comments on the music than anything else. Finally, Steffen was not only a great DJ but a great host and MC. He managed the whole ceremony and didn't miss a thing. Overall - using Soto's Entertainment was probably the best decision we made in all our wedding planning. I'd recommend Soto's to anyone for any event. They are awesome!

Soto's Entertainment went above and beyond for our wedding! From the very beginning, Steffen was sure to tailor his services to our personalities. He met with us several times before the wedding to be sure we were all happy and on the same page. It was apparent that he truly cared and wanted to make our day special. On the day of the wedding, he made sure the reception ran smoothly and it was perfect! We never had to worry about anything, Steffen took care of it! He played the right songs to get people up and dancing and made sure everyone was having a good time. I highly recommend Soto's (especially Steffen) to anyone planning a wedding in the Charlotte area.

Our wedding was an intercultural affair -- I am Honduran & my husband is German.Seems like this is the specialty of Soto's Entertainment. Steffen did an excellent job of playing music that met everybody's taste so that everyone was included! Everyone had fun - Hondurans, Germans, and Americans! Also, he did a great job as a bilingual MC so that our guests who only speak Spanish felt included! He even surprised us by playing typical Honduran music - punta! We loved it. At the end of the night, he had a special gift for us and gave us a CD with our wedding songs - nice touch! We appreciate his responsiveness, professionalism, and flexibility throughout the entire process!

P.S. We actually chose to hire Soto's Entertainment based on the reviews in this site. So everything you read here is true!

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 :)
