The One of A Kind Team
“I am a natural born performer: I am always excited to put my Entertainer skills to the test in front of a crowd. Throughout the years, I’ve been working hard to develop my own artistic voice and talent to make sure I stand with my performances. For me, the pleasure of performing comes from forming a connection with my audience and providing an unforgettable, entertaining experience. I could be your next event host.
I’ve been entertaining for the last 10+ years in a huge variety of settings — from night clubs, to corporate events, to Mitzvahs and weddings all over the globe. I love what I do and couldn’t imagine doing anything else in my life. I also spent more than 10 years of my life as a professional MMA fighter, fighting locally and making my way all the way up to the UFC. Entertaining is something that’s in my blood — whether it’s in the middle of the ring or the middle of the dance floor.
When it comes to your private affair, I do things very differently than any other company or entertainer — I personalize and create moments for my featured guests that boosts interaction and builds a strong bond between them, their guests, and myself to give them the biggest and most memorable night of their lives.”
“I’ve been in love with this industry for as long as I can remember. My career as an entertainer began the minute I started sound tracking my parents’ parties. From there, I was spinning any chance I got – starting with local bars and clubs, jumping onto my mentors’ CD decks, and throwing down my own sets.
At 16, I invested in turntables and created my own style and sound. Since then, I have spun alongside several global DJs who I once looked up to, and have had the awesome opportunity to host a variety of upscale celebrity and charity events. I worked hard to broaden my knowledge of music theory and production so that I could pursue my passion and entertain thousands of people. Whether I’m playing disco, funk, house, hip-hop, dance, EDM, top 40, I’m bringing a ton of energy with me. From family parties to packed nightclubs, I’ve been lucky enough to rock crowds of all sizes and different age groups.”
A native of Staten Island, and now a resident of New Jersey, Valentine has spun at nightclubs all over the tri-state area. He is an active competitor in the professional DJ industry, and someone to keep a close eye on. From the Jersey Shore’s most packed nightclubs to exclusive Manhattan rooftop parties, there is no gig DJ Valentine can’t handle.
“I have vested my life in the entertainment industry as a DJ for several years now. I truly love all music — anything from old school disco funk, to Motown, to today’s top hits. I decided to join One Of A Kind Events to give featured guests unforgettable experiences. My biggest goal is to ensure a positive relationship with the guests I team up with, from the moment we meet, throughout planning, until the very last minute of their event.
I’ve always found the entertainment industry enticing for its constant change of pace: no event is like another, especially when the right team is producing it. It is extremely rewarding to help create moments that will last forever for the guest of honor, their closest friends, and family. I look forward to staying on my toes and working with you to design a successful, memorable, and meaningful event.”
Jayson has been with the One Of A Kind team from the very beginning and has grown to be one of our members’ most preferred and requested talents. He absolutely loves what he does, and fully embodies the One Of A Kind Events mission in every event he takes on. When he’s not performing, Jayson is coordinating and ensuring each aspect of production is seamless and unforgettable.
“I’ve made a point to bring my client service experience to the private event industry. Entertainment is the ultimate way to use relationship-building skills and be able to work alongside new people every week. As an MC and DJ, I love nothing more than interacting with my featured guests, friends, and family at their events. All music is my type of music: anything Latin (salsa & bachata especially), ’80s-’90s house/freestyle, ’90s-2000s hip hop — you name it. I make sure to guide my clients every step of the way. I’m always eager to answer questions, make suggestions, and be an overall support system throughout planning.”
Aside from being a loving father to his son, Johnny Resto Jr., Johnny is devoted to making every event special. Leave the music to him, and he’ll make your night incredible. Outside of events, Johnny hopes to work with underserved populations and guide them towards a better life. He puts his heart into everything he does, and does not disappoint!
Yes, We are Bilingual!
“I have been surrounded by music my entire life — my childhood was filled with tons of Cuban music, dancing, and singing. When I hit my teens I started competing at the national level across a variety of dance styles, where I learned just how much I enjoyed performing. My career evolved into professional acting, where I found my true voice and skills necessary to become a bilingual entertainer. In 2010, I was fresh out of college, and knew I had to explore entertainment as a DJ/MC.”
Rafael’s infectious energy follows him wherever he’s performing — whether it’s on stage, in film, or at countless live events, he rises to every occasion.
“I always knew I’d become an entertainer. Over the last several years, my career took off in this awesome industry. I started as a radio host for La Mega Mezcla in NYC, and from there I knew I had to make my way to hosting and DJ’ing private events.
My goal is to bring tons of positive energy to your event, enough to leave you and your guests speechless. I add personal touches to each and every event I host. Being a bilingual entertainer allows me to connect with different groups of people on a whole new level. Catch me at my best on the mic and on the dance floor right alongside the event guests.”
What you see is what you get with Miguelito — outgoing, lively, and ready to pack your event with tons of energy. He takes the time to learn everything he can about his members, well before the event date. Your guests will be in awe over how much fun Miguelito throws at them.
