She brings professional positivity to every gig-- big or small--along with her extensive range of state-of-the-art equipment, cutting edge lighting and sound technology, HUGE music library, and a creative ear that will make you pull the plug on all your preconceived notions of traditional party entertainment. She never fails to engage the crowd, perform with confidence, and put 100% of herself into every gig.

"Royal Beats was nothing short of awesome to work with for my wedding. Stephanie has a broad knowledge of music and is incredibly intuitive on the kind of music a crowd wants to hear. She always made herself available to address any of the questions/comments/or concerns I had regarding my wedding day music. She made me feel like my wedding day held a very high level of importance to her and that our overall satisfaction was her main goal. Royal beats was very fair with pricing and helped make the day a little more affordable by working within the budget that worked best for my husband and I. The crowd loved the music and I had multiple people ask me about the company I chose. I would highly recommend Stephanie Rivkin and Royal Beats for any function and we will be using them again and again in the future! " ~Rachel Beaulieu (Kendall) - Bride, July 2016
