Creating the ambience!

Esteban brings some original music and worldwide known covers mixing different genres into his shows, such as modern hits, funky and reggae vibes, R&B tunes, Aussie classics and hits from the 80's and 90's to get people to dance and sing-along.

His experience from having been a member of multiple bands and engaging in solo projects in the past 20 years have given him his versatility in music. Because of this, Esteban is a musician and entertainer, able to play different types and styles of music suitable to almost any kind of event.

Most people will identify with Esteban's personal energy and music style, which suit venues wanting a happy beach-style vibe. He also loves playing at various other type of venues such as taverns, that require or request upbeat pub music to create a big party vibe.

Even with this being said, you would be wrong to think that he does not suit smaller bars and cozy restaurants with a more relaxing ambience. Esteban is a great performer even when playing beautiful chill-out music suitable for a more relaxing atmosphere. He creates a different type of connection with the audience, deeper and more intimate, creating a unique energy in the air.

Esteban also has a big passion for house concerts, weddings and corporate events, which involve the combination of all these different types of music in one night.

Unique services I offer

For something different I offer the option of MEXICAN OR LATIN FIESTAS with all music in Spanish. The acceptance of the crowd is substantially good as it is a type of music that sounds unique and exotic. It is music that people are not usually able to find or listen to in the live music industry so it creates a very fun atmosphere which everyone enjoys.

Mexican Fiestas

These gigs include traditional Mariachi, Mexican pop music, Rancheras and Boleros, Indie Mexican pop, Mexican rock & reggae and funky tunes.

Latin Fiestas

These events or parties ('Fiestas' in Spanish) include worldwide Spanish classics, latin pop hits, Spanish versions of English songs, party reggaeton, cumbia, urban and tramp, indie latin pop, reggae, ska, funky tunes and bachata.

DJ - English & Latin

I can combine three options:

Party Reggaeton - very uplifting dance music of Puerto Rican origin, a fusion of Latin rythms and hip-hop

Latin Pop classics - urban, medium party tunes, romantic reggaeton, salsa and bachata

English Bachata - ideal for dinner atmosphere and chill-out happy background bar tunes

In general when I am hired as a DJ, I start with English Bachata for an hour or so to have a great intro. After that, I get more into the Latin Pop classics and romantic reggaeton, which is ideal to get the party feeling started. Finally I add another hour of uplifting Party Reggaeton to get people moving and dancing.

Recent Releases

Esteban is currently recording his first reggae solo EP as 'Esteban Roots'. 'Escape' is the first song of his project and it has been released on all the online platforms.

This song talks about that moment when we are going through a higher and deeper sense of awareness, happening when we truly connect with nature and consciously exchange energy. Sometimes we get overloaded with all the troubles we have in our world and want to express the compassion to our mother earth for all the damage we are constantly causing to her. While the only thing we want to do is going to nature and manifest our empathy and having that beautiful energetic connection with her.

Esteban also has a Ska Rock band called 'Banned From the Club', they are currently recording their second album. The songs 'Equinox' and 'Not who I am' are their last releases. Stay tuned for their next release 'Ride with me' which will come out later this year.

Recent reviews

Our wedding was fantastic!

Esteban provided the music for my wedding. It was fantastic! There was a good variety of songs, and he is a great performer.

The song selection that he performed was right for the timings of the reception - pleasant and catchy songs during dinner, then upped the tempo for the dancing afterwards. Professionally, he was very easy to deal with, and everything leading up to the wedding was well organised by him. I would recommend Esteban for your wedding.

Melbourne Cup corporate event

Attending the Melbourne Cup this year was fantastic and very well organised. Esteban provided the live music entertainment.

His blend of upbeat tracks and smooth melodies was the perfect complement to the vibrant atmosphere. In addition, he set up the sound for the race on the big screen so that everyone can enjoy it.

Great performance for my 40th birthday!

We booked Esteban for my 40th birthday party and he went above and beyond to meet our needs.

I have to admit I was a bit nervous as this was my first time booking a musician, but I could not have asked for a more professional entertainer and musician, he gave an outstanding performance and everybody engaged on the dancefloor.

Our company celebration was outstanding

Esteban played at the corporate event I organised and he is exactly what I was looking for.

He is a multi talented musician and his feeling for tempo is very well developed. Professional, well dressed entertainer, good at reading the crowd and performing accordingly. His music selection was outstanding and my colleagues are still asking me about him and want to make sure that we have him come back for our next event.
