DJ Roman was our wedding DJ and Emcee. What made him one of our favorite vendors was he took all the stress out of wedding planning and helped us carry off the actual day without a hitch in our program. He was responsive to emails in a timely manner and was really professional. Once we chose him he sent us sample timelines, even though we had an actual planner. He had all our song choices ready from ceremony to reception. I told him his most important job was to have people dancing and he nailed it. He started with some upbeat music that was cross generational and then played some top 40 stuff. He'll ask you for must plays and do not play songs so he can get the vibe you're going for. As for his emcee abilities, you know he used to be a radio voice for UH so he's got that deep, smooth, dare I say sensual tone. Overall he's just a fun, easy going, chill guy with a classic blonde fro! He'll help elevate any party. More...

I had no idea how complicated planning a wedding for 100+ people would be, but I'm glad I happened on DJ Roman. Roman was great, he followed up with us quickly and guided us through the process of entertaining our guests. He handled all announcements well, and really rocked later getting all the guests dancing. Thank you DJ Roman! More...

DJ Roman Candles took our Christmas party from good to amazing!  He took our theme of "decades" and expertly crafted a playlist to get everyone up and out on the dance floor.  He also provided karaoke services that turned out to be the highlight of everyone's night!  Roman worked with us on the flow of the evening, provided great insight on when to talk and when to let people dance.  He was by far the best DJ I've seen.Thank you DJ Roman Candles for making our Christmas party the best one ever!

I had the pleasure of being at a wedding with DJ Roman recently.  He is an excellent DJ. Definitely the most down to earth DJ I've ever met.  He also did an awesome job as an emcee. Knowledgeable, laid back and professional.  You definitely want to hire this guy for your wedding or party. More...

Roman is such a cool guy and he did an awesome job at our wedding! He was both our MC and DJ for the night. He definitely has the perfect DJ voice! We liked how he asked for a short list of songs of what we wanted to have played during the reception, so we could hear songs that we love. But he also did well with taking requests from the guests and doing his own thing as far as song choice went. He knows how to read a crowd and what should be played next. We would definitely recommend DJ Roman! More...

Roman is an absolute MUST for anyone that needs a DJ for their Hawaiian wedding!!! His response time was unparalleled to most other vendors who always seem to be on "island time" and his price is EXTREMELY affordable for the services he provides. He has a wealth of knowledge outside of his musical realm, and will provide you with a script for the flow of the wedding to help plan the entire reception to ensure that it runs smoothly. He caters to your music wishes and asks for a list of 30 play/do not play songs and works from that to make sure all the songs he pays will get your crowd dancing! The floor was packed all night and it was 100% due to DJ Roman's unbelievable mixes and choreographed jams! Our party was LIT all night due to DJ R. Candles!! More...

Two of the coolest people I know were recently married in Oahu and DJ Roman Candles was the perfect addition to their wedding! The Hemberstein crew is one that loves to get down and his old school hits and bootylicious beats had the dance floor bumpin' the whole entire time! If your looking to light your party on fire, DJ Roman Candles is your man. 100%. More...

We got married on December 27, 2015 and hired DJ Roman Candles after finding his listing with a professional DJ association. It was really important to us that people danced at our wedding so we threw down for a dance floor and hired Roman. We gave him a tall order because we come from different cultures where I'm white and and my husband is Latino and we think that meringue makes a party! We also put in some requests for some Bolivian music that we weren't sure he could find. We asked for funk, dance, rock, and a Sinatra song! Roman met with us and was good at communicating via email and was responsive. He's very low key. He got all of the special songs we asked for and at the reception - It. Was. Awesome. I actually caught myself thinking during all the craziness: Damn this music is good! People danced all night and it was nice because he played music we didn't know but matched the music we requested, and got people on the dance floor. At some point in the night one of the groomsmen requested an obscure Spanish song that he wanted to dedicate to us and, I don't know how, but Roman managed to find and play it. I wholeheartedly recommend DJ Roman Candles for your wedding. We told him what we wanted and he more than delivered. More...

I met Roman at an party he DJed at a club in Chinatown, and he was awesome! I think there was 150 people or so at the event, and his audio equipment was stellar. His choice of music was totally perfect for the crowd, and he actually mixed a turn table, unlike most other DJs in Hawaii who just play various top 40 hits. Every track we requested he had, and as I said, the sound quality was amazing. He had really amazing artists that I'd never even heard of that were perfect for the event. If you're hosting any event, wedding, party, etc., you definitely need to hire Roman. More...

Roman Candles made our wedding ceremony really special. From the beginning, he was easy to work with and helped set our minds at ease. He listened to our concerns, questions and helped shape our thoughts into reality. The wedding ceremony music and lights were exactly what we were looking for. DJ Roman Candles knew how to gauge the crowd and change the music accordingly. He also was a great emcee who brought energy and humor to the ceremony. We would recommend him to others who are looking for an affordable, professional and overall great DJ for a wedding or other events. Thank you Roman Candles!! More...

DJ Roman Candles literally got every guest on the dance floor at our wedding! Most of my friends and family love to dance, however I'm sure you know, some guests can be stubborn, but even my Grandpa who can be a little timid about getting his groove on was up there. He can really read a crowd! He is friendly, easy to work with, and such a funny guy. He even hung out at the after party and enjoyed some brews with us. I have nothing but praise for him! Absolutely hire him for your special day! More...

DJ Roman Candles worked our wedding reception in Waikiki. I choose Roman based on online reviews, and it is the best decision I could have made in reference to our wedding. DJ Roman Candles worked with our extensive playlist request, and able to keep our Australian and American guests happy and dancing all night playing all genres from Aussie and American artists. Roman is a relaxed and chilled guy, he is happy to play requests throughout the night, and worked closely with our run sheet. DJ Roman Candles is the "Man."
You must use Roman as your DJ for your next event, and for all those future Brides and Grooms book DJ Roman Candles for your wedding, he will make your reception a memorable experience to last a lifetime!!!!

DJ Roman Candles was amazing from the pre-planning of the wedding to the day of the wedding.  He was always available via email or phone during the time coming up to the event.  He helped provide a timeline and template for our wedding that we worked from and gave us a list of items that he would need from us.  The list was very helpful in keeping things organize for our wedding day.  We also had several special things that we wanted to do for our wedding and he was able to provide them for us.On the day of the wedding DJ Roman Candles arrived on time and was able to set up without any issues.  I had some last minute changes that I wanted to add on the day before the wedding and he was able to accommodate my requests.  He also had all the equipment that we needed including wireless mics and a projector.  Everyone at my wedding told me he was so relaxed and easy going and that it was really easy to talk to him.  I would gladly recommend DJ Roman Candles if you are planning on having a DJ for your wedding!

DJ Roman dj'd at our 10 year anniversary (an belated wedding ceremony) at a beach house on the North Shore. We were pretty last minute in our catering and DJ plans, so we asked our caterer (Chef Ed, awesome by the way) to recommend a DJ. He put us in touch with DJ Roman, and we're so happy he did. He showed up on time, recommended the best spot to setup and started to work his magic. He's such a chill dude, but accommodated every request, fed of the crowd (about 30 people) and the music selection was perfect. Everyone had so much fun, and by the end of the night DJ Roman was our buddy :) I just can't recommend him enough! Thanks DJ Roman! More...

We used DJ Roman for a corporate function with 280 people ranging in ages from 2 months old to 70 years old!! Through the entire booking process he was quick to responded, open to our ideas and professional at all times!!! He was happy to meet with us onsite to go through a few things once we arrived in Hawaii (we were all from Australia). The event was just perfect, the dance floor wasn't empty for 1 song!!!!!!!!!!! He was approachable, fun and most importantly made our event the dance party we wanted it to be!!!!! we loved it!!! we cant thank him enough and will definitely be rebooking him next time we are in Hawaii!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do yourself a favour and hire him!!!! More...

I can't recommend DJ Roman Candles enough! We communicated almost entirely via email as I was planning a destination wedding. He was responsive, professional, and did everything he said he would do. He provided helpful tips and even a wedding timeline of how things usually progress throughout the day. I provided a pretty comprehensive list of songs we loved and expected he would play some of them, but manage the rest of the playlist himself. To my delight, he played pretty much everything on my list and read the crowd well enough to throw in some great additions. Everyone danced the entire night and that's exactly what I wanted. Thank you for being so professional and doing such a great job!!! More...

I met many DJs at the Bridal Expo but DJ Roman Candles stood out of the crowd because of his personality: fun and laid back. He was so helpful and experienced regarding the planning of our reception. He provided many recommendations that were right on point. On the day of our wedding, he was so professional yet fun and approachable. It was a small wedding yet he kept the dance floor full. We received a lot of compliments on him. He even sent a follow up email after our wedding to congratulate us and attached pictures he took from the wedding that we were not expecting. He's personable yet professional and goes above and beyond your expectations. Hire him as your DJ! You will not be disappointed! More...

I heard Roman Candles on KTUH once and was totally blown away. Roman Candles offers the whole package. He's entertaining as a performer as well as a person. He listens to your questions and follows through with everything. He offers a fun environment and gets the crowds going. The best part is that he is a total professional, and excels and getting the job done. He plays great music, and comes on-time and prepared. Roman performed at my school's Earth Fest this past year and absolutely nailed it. He's now being hired for my friends' weddings. Check him out. More...

The word that comes to mind when I think of Roman is "GROOVY "Honestly, one of the coolest guys on oahu and such a great DJ. Roman  did a great job as Mc and  played  all the music  we asked,  and also played music according to the vibes he got from our guests at the wedding. We got compliments  from  everyone on the music! He's young, fun  and super professional! You were  so great Roman :) Thank you so much for everything :) you made our special day come together :) More...

We hired Roman candles to DJ our 25th wedding anniversary party. He put together a fantastic mix of the coolest music - classic rock from our past as well as electronic music that kept everyone moving all night long. He took requests and interacted with the crowd - he has a deep sexy voice and was a wonderful MC. He definitely contributed to the fun factor with his laser lights -- we felt like we had been transported back to the disco scene of the 80s! Everyone at the party had a blast and we will definitely work with Roman again at our next party. More...

Wow! What charisma! Roman was our wedding DJ and he killed it. The DJ is one of the most important pieces to insuring your wedding day goes great, and Roman did that. Roman, as always, played great jams and kept everyone one the dance floor. He also MCed the reception, alerting our guest to important moments during the ceremony (e.g. first dances, groom/bridal party intros, cake cutting, tossing of the garter and bouquet). Roman was a perfect balance of enthusiasm, class, and elegance. I would recommend him for any of your DJ needs. He will work hard to make sure your event goes smashingly. More...

Q&A

The right music at the right time. Get to know the client first, get a list of 'must play' and 'do not play' tracks, and watch how the crowd reacts to songs. Experience with over 100 weddings is key.

I'd describe myself as 'superfly.' I love funky bass lines across all genres of music, and love being able to play for so many different people.

I love bringing people together from all around the world to celebrate together using music!

I like working for myself and being able to take time off to travel. If I want to take several weeks off, I just stop accepting gigs for that time.

-I'm the owner and DJ, so you're talking to me for the entire planning process and no one else.
-The only job I have is DJing, so I'm always improving
-I've got brand new top-of-the-line sound and lighting gear
-I've got a unique selection of remixes and underground tracks in addition to the staples
-At 27 I'm the youngest and freshest mobile DJ on Oahu!
