    We chose to use Monastero Entertainment because Roberto had been the dj for our company holiday party a couple times then he was also the DJ for our friends wedding and we absolutely loved him! When we were booking our wedding he was not available but John was! He was just as outstanding as Roberto! We wanted to make sure that there were people on the dance floor all night and he was able to do just that. Everyone raved about how awesome he was! Plus, during dinner he played exactly what we asked him to, it wasn’t too loud, and again, everyone loved it! He was in constant contact with us through out the entire planning. I also loved that we had our own personal planning page on their website that we could fill in all of our music, requests, do not play list, names of parents and attendants, ect. He also called a few days before the wedding to make sure he was pronouncing all the names correctly which I loved. They are really great and I highly recommend them!

    If you have found Roberto, end your search. He is the best. Hire him now, you will NOT regret it. The music was amazing and the dance floor was packed all night. If you’re debating band vs. DJ, or DJ vs. DJ, or even band vs. band, you should do the following 3 things:
1. Stop debating 2. Pick up the phone 3. Call Roberto
Cheers

    I highly highly recommend Monastero Entertainment. I worked with Roberto and he was fantastic, very accommodating and our wedding night went even better than I could have ever imagined. He was very professional and still a ton of fun to work with. He set the whole tone for the night and got everything off to a great start! He was such fun and all my guests had such a blast and even made comments of how great our DJ was!! I can not say enough, I very highly recommend them! Thank you so much Monastero Entertainment for everything you did for my husband and I, and thank you for making our wedding night so much fun and so memorable. Jim and Bethany Morrissy

    Roberto was our DJ and he was fantastic. The dance floor was packed the whole night and everyone kept talking about how great the music was. He always answered every phone call or email within two business days.

We cannot begin to thank Monastero Entertainment enough for everything they did last Friday to make our son’s evening a spectacular time. So many people complimented the music selections, the slideshow presentation, and Roberto’s own personal touch of singing. I danced til my feet hurt (in a good way) and enjoyed their work immensely.

    Geeta and I were absolutely thrilled with the job that Ervin Vallejo did as DJ at our wedding and with the work that Roberto did preparing for our wedding. We have had so many people who were at our wedding remark about how awesome the DJ was and how much fun they had dancing at the reception.
The dance floor was packed basically the entire night and we saw some friends and family members of ours dancing whom we had never in our lives seen step foot near a dance floor. As we requested, Ervin did a fantastic job of mixing in some country and Indian music among the more traditional, current dance music and avoided any of those dreaded songs that clear out the dance floor.
We danced a ton and had so more fun than we could have hoped for and much of that is attributable to the job that Roberto and Ervin did.

    Roberto made our wedding magical. It was absolutely perfect (which many people cannot say) as he kept our guests entertained. We received compliments from everyone telling us how amazing the evening was. He kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night. Even the people who worked at the Doubletree said they’ve worked many weddings but our’s was far superior due to the music and organization.
We thank Monastero Entertainment for helping us make the wedding we imagined in our heads come true. Our focus (when we were planning this) was the guests and having everyone have a good time, and with the music selection and energy, we had people telling us that this was the best wedding they had ever attended, including their own!
A most successful night; thanks for everything!

    I was lucky enough to have both Roberto and Joe at my wedding this past July (2012), and it was awesome. My friends and I were on the dance floor for hours, and Roberto very quickly figured out what our favorite music was – they even made new mixes on the spot! My friends are still talking about how much fun it was, and after attending several other weddings recently, I am more than grateful for Roberto and Joe’s professionalism!!
Roberto helped coordinate the entire evening and was the perfect MC for the cake cutting, first dance, etc. He’ll even sing if you want him to (and my mom’s friends still can’t believe how great his voice is – they thought it was a recording!). He listened to all of my song requests, down to the hints of Disney here and there. At one point in the evening he noticed the beautiful sunset over the lake, and found our photographer so we didn’t miss the perfect picture! Roberto continually checked with my husband and I, and our family, to make sure we were having a fun time and to see if there was anything we needed.
If you’re looking for a professional DJ who will ensure that you and your guests have a great time – Roberto is the perfect DJ for you!

    All I can say is “WOW”
Who would have known that a DJ could “make” our wedding? We didn’t … but Roberto Monastero “made” our wedding reception an event to remember. Of course we knew music was important, but we never realized the power of a truly great entertainment professional — because that’s what Roberto is. Not just a kick-a** DJ, but a flawless emcee (and phenomenal singer… if you want).
The music at our wedding truly ROCKED. My husband and I were hell-bent on making sure that the music at our wedding was “cool” — the furthest thing from stale wedding music you can fathom. Roberto not only delivered, he blew us and our guests away. The entire wedding party, from older (60s and 70s) to younger (20s and 30s) were dancing NON-STOP the entire night! I’ve never seen anything like it! He mixed music flawlessly and introduced cool club-mixes that got the crowd pumped-up. In addition, Roberto made sure the events of the evening flowed smoothly (i.e., cake cutting, first dance)…he announced each with poise and elegance.
We have friends (all in their 30s, many of whom frequent the NYC club scene) who are still calling us and asking “who WAS that DJ???!” He was that good. In fact, my husband and I said that if we had to do it over again and had to choose between a top Chicago wedding band vs. Roberto, we’d pick Roberto again, HANDS-DOWN.
If there is one vendor you choose for your wedding that you can hire with complete confidence, it’s Roberto Monastero.

    Joe was great! It’s always great when you have vendors that can work with minimal direction. We just gave Joe the general guidelines, and he kept the party going all night. We did have a few issues with feedback during the MC portion, but it was a small matter in the grand scheme of things. He also did a great job with the music for our pah-baek. We’d definitely recommend Joe and the folks at Monastero!

    My husband and I booked Monastero Entertainment for our DJ services after the manager at the country club where we hosted our wedding recommended him. He said that I can promise you that your dance floor will be packed the entire night, and he was right!! Roberto was booked the day of our wedding, so he assigned us to work with another experienced DJ, Ervin. My husband and I couldn’t have been happier with his choice. Throughout the planning process we spoke with Roberto and Ervin regarding our style and preferences. I am not picky when it comes to music, I just asked for stuff to dance to and nothing cheesy. My husband on the other hand has very particular music tastes, so I thought it was going to be a challenge to make everyone happy. However, the day of our wedding we had the best playlist I have ever heard at a wedding. Ervin gave us a night of incredible music that my guests, husband, and I loved. I never once left the dance floor after the reception dance music started, and it seriously remained packed the entire night! It was the most fun and best night of my life! Not only that, but Roberto and Ervin are the nicest guys, so easy to work with, and came at a great price. I hope to work with them again in the future!

    After some of our best friends hired him as their DJ; the choice was simple for us to book Roberto for our wedding. We received numerous compliments from our guests (both males and females) regarding the music at our wedding. Our guests really enjoyed the music and many felt they were at a club dancing the night away! It was a real pleasure working with Roberto. Not only is Roberto a true professional and so friendly, but he truly loves giving the guests a night to remember!
Again, thank you Roberto for giving our guests an amazing time! We can’t wait to see you at the next wedding!

    Roberto is a stand out DJ!!! He played an excellent variety of music and kept the floor hoppin all night. We met with him in person only once (I live out of town) and he was still able to get everything we wanted perfectly. We had so many compliments from guests on how much fun he was and how receptive to requests. I would choose this DJ over and over again. I hope my cousin uses him at his wedding in May!

    We had Roberto for our DJ and he was awesome. Everyone danced at our wedding. There were even people dancing on the carpet beyond the actual dance floor. He did a great job of mixing songs to keep both the older and younger people dancing. He uses a beat mix which means that one song transitions right into another song. I think that was key to keeping people dancing. I had many guest come up to me and rave about how good the music was.

    Music commands the wedding reception and Roberto Monastero definitely exceeded our expectations. He knew what we and our guests wanted and the reception turned out to be one of the best days of our lives! He had our guests dancing all night long…seriously! And not to mention this bride was just having the best time!
