Q & A with DJ Rob Dinero!


We recently had a chance to speak with our favorite local DJ’s, DJ Rob Dinero!  This Bronx native, had his first big gig in the early 2000s when he began producing music for MTV and has now produced tracks for some of the biggest artists today. Some of his clients include Sean Paul, Tamia, DJ Irie, O’Neal McKnight, Pitbull, Red Fox, DJ Honda, Lord Tariq, Capleton and many more! In the past, DJ Rob has DJed many  After Prom events, especially at Crimson, one of our HOTTEST after prom parties.  To hear some of DJ Rob’s music listen for his one hour sets on The Music Channel on Cable Network. Keep reading for more information on DJ Toro!

  • Did you attend the Prom? 

I didn’t attend my own school’s prom, but was invited, and went to a prom from a different school.

  • What are you working on these days?

Right now I’m performing in plenty of clubs in NYC & across the country.  I am also working on a few musical projects that will be released soon.  You can check my website www.djrobdinero.com to keep up to date with everything that’s going on with me… It changes everyday!

  • What is your favorite part about being a DJ?

Making people enjoy themselves and have a good time is my favorite part about being a DJ.  Also, me being able to be creative with the music that I play, in a certain way, that is different from other DJ’s.

  • What would your advice be for the Class of 2012?

Definitely to be focused on what it is you want to do.  Nowadays it’s so easy to be sidetracked with things that won’t help you in the long run, so as soon as you figure out what it is that you are into, get focused on that and try to be the best you can at it!

  • Tell us about some of your favorite hobbies, pastimes or charitable organizations you’re involved with?

Of course, I’m into creating & playing music, so that takes up most of my time, but I’m pretty much into all the normal things, like go see a movie, or go to a game… Luckily, being a DJ doesn’t always feel like work, so it’s like doing something that’s fun like a hobby, but the difference is that I get paid from it…

Q & A with Miss Westchester Teen, Jacqueline Groccia!


  • Name: Jacqueline Groccia
  • Age: 15
  • Hometown: Eastchester
  • Grade Level: 10th
  • Have you already attended the Prom?

I attended Junior Formal in March and will be attending Eastchester High School’s senior prom in June.

  • What was your favorite memory from Junior Formal?

My favorite memory from Junior Formal is being around so many kids my age.  Just one big teenage funfest. Music, dancing and good memories.

  • What are you looking forward to the most about senior prom?

I am very excited to be there to celebrate the end of high school with my senior friends.  I bought a beautiful baby pink dress that I can’t wait to wear.  I have been doing a lot of work with the executive director, Noel D’Allacco, of Operation Prom who in addition to giving away prom wear to needy students, has a line of affordable prom dresses available through Promologist.com.

  • Do you plan to go to an After-Prom?

I am planning on attending an After-Prom with a group of friends. I love that The Prom Company alleviates some stress that may arise from planning After-Prom events, assuring it will be non-alcoholic, but just as fun!

  • What made you try out for this Pageant?

Going into 9th grade, I was not as confident as I knew I could be and was looking for something to bring out my girly side. I saw an ad in a local newspaper for Miss Westchester Teen and thought it would be the perfect way to keep busy over the summer and break me out of my shell; which it certainly did! After winning the Spirit Award the first year, I came back with more experience, confidence and poise to try again which is when I was crowned Miss Westchester Teen 2012.

  • Do you have a favorite memory from the Pageant?

Over the summer, the pageant directors, Dee van Eyck and Laura Giannone hosted some really fun photo shoots at a variety of different venues including salons, beach clubs and Playland. My favorite was the evening gown photo shoot at the Whitby Castle in Rye; it felt like a Teen Vogue ad – beautiful venue, gorgeous girls, and fabulous dresses, isn’t that every girls dream? The photo shoots provided the perfect opportunity to bond with the other girls before the pageant competition.  In the end we were all great friends.

  • What advice would you give to girls your age on “following their dreams”?

Confidence is the key. In order to follow your dreams,  which takes motivation and persistence, you need to be confident with yourself and your choices. Confidence will give you the strength to never give up. Being confident helped me prepare for the Miss New York Teen competition and to follow my dream of being on the big stage.

  • What are some of your go-to beauty products that would be good recommendations for Prom Night?

Primers are essential! I actually have a YouTube beauty channel, LoveAlwaysJackie where I demonstrate techniques and highlight some great products. MAC Prep and Prime for your face and Urban Decay Primer Potion are great choices for keeping your foundation and eye shadow flawless throughout the evening.  Primers will keep your make up perfect from the first photo to the last. Prom night is also the perfect occasion to wear false eyelashes.  Ardell lashes are easy to apply, and add the perfect amount of glam to any look!
