DJ ROLO was THE BEST DJ that I could have ever asked for!!!!!! I (and my guests) have been raving about him ever since my wedding this summer. I am biracial (black/white) and my husband is Dominican. We needed a DJ who could cater to a variety of music interests while keeping the party very lively. That is EXACTLY what he did and more. I am super into dancing and just wanted the party to be as fun as possible and I seriously had the time of my life. I can't tell you how many people asked me who my DJ was afterwards. Also, prior to the wedding, he took the time to meet with me in person and over the phone to learn all about my wedding, my music interests, how he could incorporate music requests from my in-laws, how to pronounce some pretty complex names (which he did quite flawlessly on the day of), etc. He was an amazing MC and DJ and I while I know I'm a bit biased, I don't think I've ever been to a wedding with a DJ this amazing. If you are looking for a DJ who is professional and reliable yet amazingly fun, search no more, you have found him.
