Our Story

Our Story

Hi, I’m Tony. I am proud and humbled to be the owner of DJ Maestro.

When I started DJ Maestro in 2011, I had no idea it would become what it is today. At that time, what mattered to me was creating work for myself that felt purposeful and supported my growing family. I had worked in restaurants and as a DJ in my teens and early twenties. It took my wife and I having our first kid to kick-start me into opening a business myself. (Nothing like having a kid to light a fire under you!)

In college, my fraternity brothers called me Maestro because I was a music nerd (I’m an opera-singing baritone and I played snare drum in the CU marching band). I am an extrovert who loves gatherings and I believe that relationships are the most important things in life. I also have a love story that I’m pretty wrapped up in. All these factors organically led to the inception of DJ Maestro. We’re a people-centered, party company that loves a good love story.

Back in the early days of DJ Maestro, I had no clue what I was getting myself into, but our community rallied around and supported us. As a result, we’ve grown quite a bit over the years to a team of 30 amazingly passionate and talented individuals spread between Southern California, New York City, and Colorado’s Front Range. I care deeply for the people who are a part of the DJ Maestro family and for the amazing couples we get to work with. That’s what it’s all about. I can’t wait for us to get to know you and for your story to become a part of ours as well. Let’s party!

What We Believe (Our Vision Statement)

We believe in improving the lives of those within the DJ Maestro family and those who we serve. We believe in cultivating lasting relationships that stir up positive change in meaningful ways. We believe in the importance of inclusivity and equality, and celebrate the inherent value of each person. We believe in building each other up so that we can grow and succeed together. We use music and entertainment at monumental life events to foster those beliefs.

What people are saying

Just wanted to send along a note in regards to how pleased we are with the job that Rosie did for our wedding. Not only was she willing to provide exactly what we wanted, but her “performance” was perfect! With the music for our ceremony and reception critical to the success of the evening, it was very important that everything happen as planned. We received so many comments from our guests about what a fantastic DJ we had! They didn’t know all of the preparation that went it to the event, but they sure loved the music, the timing, and the fun created by Rosie’s skills. (We’re pretty sure that Rosie had fun too!) Please be sure and put us down as a reference for anyone that wants assurance from a very satisfied set of customers!!
Thanks again Rosie, you were (are) wonderful!

In my opinion, the DJ is a cornerstone of your wedding. A good DJ can make or break your wedding night. For this reason, I spent extensive time researching DJ’s and collecting referrals. I’m here to tell you one thing, my decision to engage dj Maestro was one of the best of my life. Not only was Tony, our DJ, extremely detailed, thorough and personable PRIOR to the wedding but his performance the day/night of the wedding was absolutely beyond imaginable. His charisma, caring and attention to detail was amazing. He honestly felt like one of our friends, enjoying the wedding versus someone who was paid to be there. Any and every request we had was accommodated and Tony did so with an amazing and happy-to-please attitude. I told Tony I wanted to get married again just so he could be my DJ. I meant it. If you’re getting married anywhere in Colorado, you are missing out if you don’t use dj Maestro.

We had Kody DJ our wedding and we had the BEST experience ever. We could not be more thrilled with the service that we recieved. He was personable and kept in the loop with our time line and changes that were occurring during the wedding. Our guests had a blast and we did too. It was awesome how personable he was and how much fun he made our wedding night. We would recommend him to anyone, absolutely anyone. This company is amazing and always responsive. They are more than happy to work with you. Use them and they will ensure you and your guests have an amazing time!

We worked with Ross, and he was spot on! He listened to our desires and really took the time to get to know my fiancé (now husband) and me. He made us feel 100% comfortable and we still have friends and family tell us that our DJ was the best DJ they have ever seen. Working with dj Maestro was the best decision we made concerning our wedding. Besides deciding to get married, of course 🙂 A DJ can make your wedding great or make it greatly horrible. Go with dj Maestro! You won’t be disappointed.

– Krista + Brad

Paul, our DJ, was exceptional! He was flexible in meeting with us over the phone since I was in CO and my husband was still in MD. He was very detailed in his questions and it was reflected during the wedding. He was also very flexible during the wedding, like when we added a speech last minute. He played every song we wanted to hear and tried to play the ones we especially requested when we were both in the room. So happy with his role in our wedding!

– Hannah + Neal

Oh my where do I begin, my daughter had her wedding on 7/18/2015 and Shane was her DJ. He was incredible, truly. We met with him 2 times and discussed what we were wanting. We didn’t give details just genres. He nailed it; we had so much fun!!!!! We were worried before we met him because DJs can make or brake the celebration. EVERYONE, even the venue staff danced for hours. They were sad when he finished. He was great for announcing toasts, cake cutting…. Can’t say enough about him. Thank you for making our daughter’s wedding a celebration not a production.

– Lauren + Richard

We worked with Rosie from dj Maestro for our wedding and she was great! She not only played all the songs our guests loved but also took requests which made the night even more fun. She was so fun and upbeat and I would definitely recommend her for any of your upcoming parties or events.

– Mallory + Aaron

I could not be more pleased with the service we received from DJ Maesteo! We had Paul as our DJ and he was so amazing. He ensure the timeline fell with our needs and ensured we were happy with how the evening went. Words do not do justice how amazing they are! Thank you so much for everything!

– Kelsey + Sean

Ethan was our DJ and he was absolutely fantastic! From ceremony till the end he did a great job! Our wedding was an early wedding and it’s kinda hard to get people to dance early on in the day, but he kept a handful of us dancing and especially us the bride and groom dancing. Ethan was fun and has a great fun easy going personality! I will definitely refer DJ maestro to others and use them again in the future if needed!

– Janelle + Efren

DJ Maestro went over and beyond to make sure that our both our ceremony and our reception proceeded smoothly and seamlessly. Our group was definitely ready to party, and DJ Maestro did not disappoint – he kept the crowd engaged and loving the atmosphere, we had a blast dancing and enjoying the great selection of music that we gave Tony. We had a few specifications, but let Tony do what he does best. He did a fantastic job and to this day, we keep hearing from our guests how much fun they had at our reception – something that we alone could not achieve. Thanks TONY!!! YOU’RE THE MAN

-Vanessa + Alex

Paul from DJ Maestro was the DJ for our wedding last month, and we were over the top impressed. Our wedding venue partners with DJ Maestro, so we were hoping we would get someone we liked. From the first meeting, we knew Paul was the perfect DJ for our wedding. We met at a coffee shop and he started the meeting by just wanting to get to know us – our story, how we met, how we envision our wedding day, etc. Then, we jumped into the music, and Paul was flexible and accommodating with our requests, and provided tips and suggestions when we were unsure of what we wanted or had questions. The day of the wedding, Paul did an amazing job working with our pastor to get mic’ed up, and the ceremony music went off without a hitch. Paul did a great job announcing all of our moments and keeping everything on schedule – when we got ourselves off schedule with all of our greeting times, Paul kept checking in to see how we wanted to proceed, and would update us with how things would shift throughout the night – but he went with the flow and was easygoing about the entire process. We feel so blessed to have had a DJ that genuinely cared about us and making our day special – we loved working with him every step along the way, and he helped make our wedding the perfect day. If you work with DJ Maestro, I hope you get the pleasure of having Paul as your DJ! Thanks Paul!

My husband and I used DJ Maestro for our photo booth, and they were great! They provide an attendant to help things run smoothly, and ours was amazing. He was dressed professionally, and was so kind to all of our guests, even the little kids who wanted to go in the photo booth 15 times. 🙂 The pictures were amazing, and DJ Maestro provides you with a guest book to put them in. People had SO much fun, and now we not only have nice words written by our guests, but pictures to put with them!

– Catherine + Andrew

We booked with DJ Maestro because he was a preferred vendor for our reception site. We are so happy with his service. My husband is very into music and he sent a list of songs that he would like to hear during the reception and all of the songs were played. We had Chris as our DJ and he was very professional. Even without him at the rehearsal, he performed our ceremony perfectly. We are so happy with their service and would definitely recommend them.

– Lauren + Chris

Dj Maestro (kody) was the most fantastic DJ we could have asked for! He made sure to communicate everything with us beforehand, even creating a mashup of father daughter songs we wanted. He kept the party going all night and played all the songs we wanted! Everyone raved about him, and he even was able to help a few of our guests get back to the hotel when there was no room in our shuttle. I cannot say enough good things about this team!! Thank you! Thank you!

– Lindsay + Blake

DJ Maestro is awesome! Tony and Shayn were so great to work with. They listened to everything that we wanted and went above and beyond to make our day unique. The live string duo was more than we could have imagined, their music gave us goosebumps. Shayn planned our playlist perfectly and kept the partying going. The dance floor was packed! Shayn was very professional and made sure that our day went smoothly from start to finish. We can’t thank these guys enough. Music is such an important part of who we are and it really showed on our special day!

– Allison + John

Absolutely LOVED working with DJ Maestro! Ross was our dj for our wedding and he did a fabulous job. we met about a week before and laid out the plan and he executed it to perfection. I would recommend DJ Maestro for any event!

– Holly + Marc

A DJ plays a huge role in the atmosphere of your wedding, and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision to work with dj Maestro! We originally met with Tony and were so impressed by him friendly demeanor and professional character. Once we booked with the company we were able to fill out a questionnaire to describe genres or specific songs that we wanted for each part of our wedding. Our other favorite part of the website was that guests can log in and request songs prior to the event! We included this information on our website and got lots of requests, but the great part is that the bride and groom still get to preview and okay the requests that will be played. Closer to the wedding we met with Shayn, our actual DJ, and went through everything with him. He listened well as we described our style and what we were looking for, then gave us advice on the order of things based on how he had successfully seen things done at his other events. Since we were first time wedding planners we really appreciated his thoughts! We also threw quite a few curveballs at him: our ceremony, cake-cutting and dancing were outdoors in a covered pavilion, my sister was playing a song on a keyboard that we needed amplified during the ceremony, we wanted music out on a patio for cocktail hour, but also inside the clubroom for dinner… Shayn and the company were able to provide us with all the equipment necessary to make each of our requests work flawlessly! At the wedding Shayn did a beautiful job of directing the flow of events, getting people out on the dance floor and having fun, and checking in with us to let us know what was coming up next. He was exactly who we needed him to be and he definitely made our wedding exactly what we were hoping it would be. We can’t recommend dj Maestro enough!

We had the pleasure of having Tony DJ our wedding in Vail. He did an incredible job finding exactly what we wanted and making suggestions based upon our discussions prior to the wedding. He took the time to get to know my husband and I, and it showed he listened by the music he played and his presence. He was helpful getting the crowd moving and everything flowing smoothly from before the ceremony, through cocktail hour, introductions, dances, toasts, cake cutting, to the very last dance! He was authentic and genuine fun! No cheesy DJ nightmare we have all heard at weddings. He kept 140 people dancing until the very last song…which he picked and was a moment in our lives we will never forget. The two of us dancing with everyone around us dancing and singing every word! I would highly recommend DJ Maestro if you are a lover a music and want to keep everyone dancing til the end 🙂

Looking back, choosing DJ Maestro to be our DJ was one of our best/smartest wedding decisions we made. From planning till the big day, he made our lives easy and he was also extremely flexible and fun to work with. The music he played was exactly what we wanted and it made our guests (and us) enjoy the night from dinner to dancing. DJ Maestro listened to our needs and also provided great ideas based on his experience. In addition, his care and customer service went ABOVE AND BEYOND anything we hoped for in a vendor/partner. I rarely write reviews, but hope that this will help people on their wedding day by working with/choosing DJ Maestro to be an amazing part of their amazing day.

Planning our wedding from 2,000 miles away, we counted on friends in Denver to recommend DJ’s. The same name kept coming up…dj Maestro. We got in touch and quickly began organizing the night through several calls and e-mails. While his customer service and professionalism were refreshing, we found the music choices, presentations and overall vibe that he created at our wedding to be simply incredible!!! He even brought and set up a keyboard so friends could serenade us with piano accompaniment – at no extra charge! And he even took a karaoke request! On a scale of 1-10, friends and family agreed that he was off the charts amazing – an absolute highlight of the night! We highly recommend DJ Maestro for any event!

– Katie + Teague

DJ Bobby was amazing! He did an amazing job with our ceremony and kept the party going during the reception. Thanks so much!

– Sarah + Ben

Overall we have nothing but great things to say about working with dj Maestro! Kody was our DJ for the event and did a fantastic job MCing the event. We really enjoyed working with him and he really listened to what we wanted for our music. He played songs that kept people on the dance floor the whole night! We also appreciated that he took request from our guests but vetoed inappropriate ones. Working with Tony was also great, he was very flexible and understanding. We used dj Maestro for a string trio as well and found him to be very accommodating with our requests. They’re a little pricey, you can definitely find cheaper DJs but I think they’re the best quality!

– Natasha + Patrick

Tony – OMG… this guy is the best DJ! he was very friendly and helpful during the entire planning process with the music worksheet. He took all of our requests and made the event very personable and memorable. We had a special request on the processional song at the ceremony, and he took care of it without a doubt and was very supportive. His timing was perfect from the ceremony, to cocktail hours, grand entrance, speeches and toast, cake cutting, to bouquet and garter toss. Everything was perfect and fun! The event wouldn’t be fun at all without him!
