What Can I Expect at the Ball?

Party with DJ Legato!

We are excited to announce that DJ Legato will be joining us to make the Stonewall Ball THE event of the summer!

About DJ Legato:

When working with clients like Jonathan Cheban, NFL receiver Antonio Brown and The Chainsmokers just to name a few; being versatile is the primary talent DJ Legato brings to the table. Currently getting booked in parts of Canada and Brazil along with his local south Florida gigs one thing he knows is looking at a room and managing a crowd. Corporate clients include playing at events for Coca-Cola and Burger King also working Pride Events in Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale & Miami.

Within the first two and a half years of his career Legato was booked in places like Miami, New York, California, Nevada and Canada. Also, in that time he was able to spin and host his own radio show on four different college campuses including UCF, FSU, Lynn U and Barry U. He was seen on Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club Miami as their official DJ. Major market radio experience includes being an on-air talent for Miami’s Hits 97.3.

"To me being a deejay is not about becoming famous, it's about musically hitting the souls of people whether it’s a private party of ten or a nightclub of one thousand." - DJ Legato
