We recently got married this summer at the Riverview on July 22nd. Our venue recommended After Hours DJ and we were fortunate enough to have Sal and Sabrina host our event. From the planning meetings, the creative ideas Sal offered beforehand, the time and attention Sal gives to detail, answering any/all of our questions, putting us at ease, being so friendly and up-beat, to the music, entertainment and enthusiasm on the day of, we couldn't have asked for a more memorable evening! We are so grateful we went with After Hours DJ. Their service was amazing, prompt, thoughtful, and most of all, very special. We are so happy that this company truly gave us a night to remember! Sal even takes pictures and videos of your toasts, dances, etc. and gives that to the bride at the end of the evening. He even matched his shirt to my bridesmaid dresses! I wanted a slideshow at the bar of our pictures over the years (last minute idea), and Sal immediately offered his technology for a very reasonable price- he sets it up and everything too!! Everyone commented to us on how much fun our wedding was- how the dancing scene was AWESOME and non-stop! We have to say, After Hours DJ is the most reasonably priced DJ with top notch service in all of Connecticut. You won't have any regrets if you choose After Hours- we would highly recommend them to any couple who wants to enjoy an amazing wedding like ours! :) Thank you, Sal and Sabrina!!
We are very impressed by our experience with Jim at After Hours DJ. We were feeling pretty overwhelmed with the idea of planning a wedding and all of the details that go into it, but Jim made the process so much easier. He went above and beyond what we imagined for a dj service and even helped us with planning out the events of the night, coordinated with our other vendors as well as our minister and the band that played at our wedding, and provided us with a drive full of music, photos, and videos right at the end of the event. We were able to personalize the wedding by being able to choose exactly which songs we wanted to have played and what events we wanted to include, but Jim also was able to provide us with creative solutions for areas of the planning in which we were feeling stuck. The wedding went very smoothly and Jim and his brother John had our guests dancing and having a great time the whole night.
Mike Moscato was our DJ and I cannot say enough great things about him! He was so easy to work with and very responsive whether it was calls/emails/texts! 2 weeks after our wedding and people are still raving about how great the DJ was! Also, at the end of the night, Mike slapped a bracelet on my wrist... yes, you know you remember those snap bracelets from back in the day... which contained a flashdrive of all our special songs as well as photos that were taken throughout the day! Talk about above and beyond!! Great Job After Hours!! Would recommend to anyone!!!
We worked with Sal on Room Uplighting, Wall Draping and Music for Ceremony and Reception. From the time that we inquired (January 2016) all the way through to the wedding day (05/27/2017), Sal was organized and attentive to our needs. Sal handled the wall draping vendor and set up with the venue staff directly. We didn't have to worry about a thing. We recommend After Hours without hesitation!
Peter Devine from After Hours DJ was amazing- my husband and I can't say enough good things about him. From our first meeting with him through our wedding day he was organized, attentive, and overall just a great person to work with. Little things like a phone call to check in a couple days before the wedding meant so much to my husband and I. He coordinated with our venue, photographer, and videographer prior to the wedding and during the wedding to make sure everyone was on the same page. We honestly didn't have to worry about anything! Peter gave us a timeline of how the night would go ahead of time, and checked in with us throughout the wedding to make sure all was going well. He was able to read the crowd and the music choices were perfect. Our guests (and us too!) were on the dance floor the entire night! His assistant took some great candid pictures and videos throughout the night as well and they were put on a USB that wraps around your wrist for us to keep by the end of the night (this was great so it didn't lost!). If we ever need a DJ for another event, Peter Devine at After Hours is the way to go!
It's hard to put into words how amazing After Hours was! We were married at The Riverview on 4/14/17. Upon meeting Sal in the AH office we knew he was the one. We had met with another company but nothing could compare to the professionalism and overall feeling we got after our first few correspondence with him and the company. There are so many different factors into going into a wedding and he had every single base covered. Things we had never even thought of. Extras that we couldn't even dreamed of. We also used after hours for our Photo Booth which I will review separately but were equally as amazing. Sal and Jordan made our night seamless. There was never a moment where we didn't know what we need to do or where we need to be. There was not a single song left unplayed from our list of wants. Even after the fact, we had guests commenting on how amazing they were. We were able to customize our entrance, for both our bridal party in ourselves. And we were able to add voiceovers on our mother and father dances, which was so special for our parents. Even after the fact, we were blown away by the videos and pictures taken during our night! It was amazing to relive the ceremony (which we had on site, After Hours provided music and microphones) and to have those memories immediately after the wedding. (They provide a slap wrist jump drive at the end with all media taken that night.)The following day we were able to share all of that with family members who are unable to make our wedding due to health reasons. AND once the bill is paid, and everything is settled, we were surprised with a beautiful slideshow on our social media walls. What company goes the extra mile after their services are complete?! When in the middle of planning a wedding, you have to put a lot of trust in your vendors to share your vision and trust that they will hold your day as special to them as it is to you and your significant other. Sal, Jordan and the After Hours company are now family to us. We will be forever grateful for the care, love, and fun they brought to our wedding! With Love- Kellie and Anthony
I cannot say enough positive things about Afterhours DJ. They are a large company with Officiants, DJ/Emcee, Uplighting, and photo booth services (and more!) however they operate like a family business. All aspects of the business are well coordinated which is reassuring that nothing will fall through the cracks! Our DJ, Sean Crawford, was incredible. He listened to what we were looking for and together --Sean, my partner, and I, worked to create a great event plan for the evening. We are a same sex couple and that was no issue at all for this company. They embraced it and were even more energized! Photo booth services were incredible--the highlight of the wedding for many. The uplighting was also fantastic...extremely accommodating to customize as we wanted. Also, last minute, we needed an officiant and Sal was extremely flexible to help us with this. They were a great team and I cannot say enough about them! I would recommend them for any event.
Our DJ, JR, was amazing. He nailed all the songs for every important part,introduction, and special dance. He also had people going the entire night! Even when we had to cut songs short, cue an end/start, and prolong others, it sounded seamless. My husband is big into music and plays multiple instruments, and even he was super impressed. Totally recommend these guys!
My husband and I were recommended Afterhours DJ & Entertainment from a co-worker of my Husbands mother. The first thing that caught my attention with this vendor was the JP service that was offered. This was music to my ears because that checked another box on my wedding planning checklist! Sal was amazing to work with...very easy to get in contact with, flexible, patient and overall a great entertainer! Sal gave us great advice and tips for planning our wedding day all in which ultimately led to a fun and successful day! Afterhours offers many options from up lighting, photo booth, Photos and video by dj (uploaded on USB along with your entire wedding playlist and video of speeches for you to have at the end of the night). instructor led dances on your big day and my favorite JP service. Sal hyped up our guests by playing a centerpiece giveaway game which was great fun and gave my husband and I many laughs. Sal also performed our JP service and everything went off without a hitch! He honored our wishes for a short and fun service. Afterhours allows you to make all your music choices online and update your day of itinerary easily. I also like being able to pay directly online. My husband and I, along with our wedding guests, had an amazing time dancing the night away. Sal and Sabrina did an outstanding job and there is not a single thing we would change. We will definitely be recommending him and Afterhours Entertainment to anyone who asks!
Our July 10, 2016 wedding was made that much more special because we chose After Hours DJ Entertainment! Their attention to detail, fantastic organization, incredible pricing and just generally awesome personalities helped to make our day perfect. We had Sal Fusco and Sabrina Cody as our two incredible DJ's for the night. They are so fun and were able to get almost every single person at our wedding on the dance floor. There was never a moment when the dance floor was not PACKED and that is exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We got many compliments on their fun personalities, song choices, interactive dances and the way the reception flowed. Prior to our wedding we had great communication with Sal. Every moment was well-planned and we had several backup plans in place. He even went as far as to send itineraries to all of the other vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. We also used Vanessa Fusco and the After Hours Photo Booth which was an incredible added bonus. Once our guests realized it was there, the line was non-stop for the rest of the night. The photo's were high quality and our guests loved the TONS of props they could use while in the photobooth. Not only did our guests get printed copies of their photo's but we also were given a completed scrapbook at the end of the night with EVERY picture taken. It is such an amazing keepsake to have! Vanessa and friends were also so funny, professional and just made the night that much better! We also chose to use After Hours for uplighting and the price was fantastic. Much better than any other vendor we looked at. The color was also perfect for the venue and it made the ambiance of the venue top notch. At the end of the night, we received flash drives of all of the photobooth pictures, important songs from the reception and ceremony and EXTRA pictures and video's Sal took throughout the night. Nothing was undocumented!!! We have received so many compliments and inquiries about their business and would HIGHLY recommend them for all of your wedding needs! The value of their services is unbeatable and we would book them again in a heartbeat. THANK YOU After Hours!!!
We recently got married 10/15/16 at the Woodwinds in Branford, CT. We had seen After Hours DJ previously at a friend’s wedding and were immediately impressed. Much to our delight After Hours was reasonably priced compared to other DJs in the area. We were paired with Jim and his assistant/brother John. We immediately felt comfortable with Jim from our first planning meeting. Jim went out of his way to meet us at a location that was convenient for us. Jim and After Hours are so organized! They create an agenda of the entire night to ensure it goes off without a hitch. Jim also always made himself available by phone/email. I would randomly think of songs that I would want played at the wedding and he would immediately add these songs to our planning forms. We also had specifically wanted Jim to play back recordings of the Best Man/Maid of Honor speech at the end of the night to incorporate into our closing songs. He was able to record the speeches as they were being given and fulfill our request. I could not have imagined a more perfect night! Our guests had a blast and I did not get off the dance floor myself all night. Another nice touch is that they snap photos and video throughout the night that they share with you afterwards. We highly recommend After Hours! They are so experienced and truly a great vendor to work with. Thank you Jim & John for a night we will never forget!
Jeff and I can’t thank everyone enough at After Hours DJ Entertainment! Sal Fusco and Sabrina Cody make an awesome team and made our wedding night so special! They knew what to play and when to play all the right music for all of our guests to enjoy the night. Sal was able to squeeze in last minute details for us to make our day just how we wanted. It’s a very overwhelming day and Sal and Sabrina made it super easy to just go with the flow and have fun. The up-lighting they provided set the perfect mood for the night inside and out at our venue and our photo booth was such a big hit! Vanessa was so easy to work with when setting up details, Sophia and JR made our entire guests feel welcome and encouraged them to let loose. Our guests had fun with the photo booth scrapbook and it's a fun way for us to look back and remember our night. All of our guests highly complimented everyone at After Hours DJ Entertainment, we couldn’t have asked for a better group to be a part of our very special day! With much love, Helen & Jeff Young!
Of all of our vendors, Jim at After Hours was by far the easiest to work with. From his monthly check-ins starting months before the wedding, we knew right away we'd made a great choice. Jim went above and beyond, editing our first dance song until it was just right, and the night of the wedding his music choices were great. He and his brother kept everything running smoothly, made sure we were in the loop but not overburdened, and most importantly kept our relatively small wedding a lively party all the way up until midnight! I highly recommend working with After Hours and Jim specifically. You won't regret it!!
The absolute best DJ. We were fortunate enough to have Sal and Sabrina DJ our wedding. Music is a HUGE deal to me and these two nailed it! Not only did they rock the party but they were a pleasure to work with. Sal was incredibly helpful when discussing the timeline of the day. Since I'm only planning on doing this once, I didn't really know what to expect so he mapped out everything for me and really helped me grasp the layout of the day. Speaking with him and watching him do his thing had us at complete ease and we did not have to worry about a thing. MANY of the guests complimented us on the music, too! Afterhours also provides a photo booth service run by Sal's wife Vanessa. She is equally amazing and they all made the day SO much fun. I was on the fence about having a photo booth but I am so glad that we did. It was one of the best one's I've experienced and we received copies of everyone's hilarious photos. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about the photo booth as well. Everyone from after hours had such a fun, positive and energetic attitude, it was an absolute pleasure working with them!
Thank you Bert and Vinnie! Our guest won't stop talking about the slideshow and the Jib Jab! Everyone had a great time and the dance floor was always full! We appreciate everything you did for us. I've even had a couple of future brides ask me for your information!
We hired After Hours DJ for our wedding on September 10, 2016, and we couldn't be happier that we did! After Hours DJ was so professional from beginning to end, from sending us all of the information and resources we needed to customize our wedding exactly the way we wanted to, to sending us friendly payment reminders. Peter Devine was our DJ, and he was honestly the best. Since we don't live in Connecticut, he took the time to meet with us a few months before the wedding so we could get to know him and he could get to know the style of music we wanted played at our wedding. He really took everything we spoke about that day and at our final planning meeting into consideration on our wedding day, and it turned out to be what a lot of our guests called, "the most fun wedding ever." Our guests were on the dance floor the entire night, and my feet hurt from dancing for days after! Peter also made sure everything went smoothly the entire night, from the intros (we had a big bridal party!) to the cake cutting, which made it a very stress-free night for my husband and I. He also did a great job of reading the crowd, and when he saw how much our guests were dancing he asked us if we still wanted to do the bouquet toss, etc., to which we responded, "No! We just want to keep dancing!" That kind of thoughtfulness really makes him a cut above other DJs, because he really wanted our wedding day to be exactly what we wanted it to be. We cannot thank After Hours DJ and DJ Peter Devine enough for helping to make our wedding reception one that our friends and family will not stop talking about for years to come!
Look no further than After Hours if you're looking for a trustworthy entertainment company that's worth every penny. We had met with other companies but we knew we were home as soon as we met Sal. He became a true Master of Ceremonies because we were so comfortable with him we asked him to marry us as well - he did an amazing job, the perfect mix of light hearted humor and sentiment that we asked for. He walked into the bridal suite where we were all dancing before introductions and jumped right in and amped up the party. They played incredible music all night, kept everyone on the dance floor, and helped me and the groom experience everything we needed to. We had an amazing wedding but all of our guests raved about Sal and After Hours the most. He absolutely unequivocally created an experience for our guests that they'll all remember for a long time. We were told by many people it was the best wedding they'd ever been to and we owe a lot of that to Sal and After Hours. At the end of the night he pulled us aside and gave us all the pictures and video they had taken that evening. we woke up early to find they had already posted everything online, and we took a good hour looking through all the pictures, which was a great experience for us to relive everything so soon and helped us commit it to memory. If you haven't booked a DJ or photobooth yet, please consider booking After Hours, you will not be disappointed and your guests will be happy you did. We are so grateful to have had them by our sides on one of the most important days of our lives - high quality entertainment matters and After Hours will exceed your expectations, I know they exceeded ours.
There are no words to describe how AMAZING Sal and his entire team are at After Hours!! Booking a DJ for our wedding was probably one of our most daunting tasks. My husband and I, and our families have a wide taste in music. We're very big believers that music can make or break a wedding. Sal and After Hours came to us through a recommendation from a coworker, he had recently done her wedding and she could not say enough great things about him! After meeting with Sal, we could immediately see why. He puts you at ease, and makes you feel like he's known you for years. He gave us great ideas to keep the day moving, fun and unique!! He also became another coordinator for our special day, you can see were his experience and knowledge comes in, and he makes sure you get the most out of your day!! We told Sal what we were looking for, and gave him a list of songs we loved and wanted to hear on our day. He and Sabrina went above and beyond on the day of. They were so flexible with a few last minute changes. All night they were checking on us, making sure we were well set. (I have to mention how excited I was that he had Sabrina with us day of, all of the reviews of the two of them together are out of the park!! They don't disappoint!!) I would like to put out there, that I'm pretty sure Sal can read minds!! He played tons of our favorite songs that we didn't include in our play lists, it was incredible!!! The best part is everyone was raving about how amazing our music was, and the dance floor was never empty!! Also the amount of pics, and videos of special dances and toasts he posted that night was beyond, we watched them all!! I couldn't imagine our special day without Sal, and Sabrina. We're so thankful for all of their hard work on making our day flawless and perfect!!!! Thank you again!!!
After Hours was an absolute DREAM to work with. Once we booked with them we were given our own personal planning webpage. On there we could put information for every detail of our wedding from the entrances, to timing of reception events, and everything in between. We also had a place where we could create a playlist of songs we would like to hear at the wedding. We didn't have many specific song choices so we let our DJ, Peter, gauge the crowd and choose the music. Peter was FANTASTIC. I don't think the dance floor was ever empty once he got started. He was so interactive with us and our guests and took any stress or concern we had about the evening away from us. He checked in with us a few times throughout the night to see how everything was going and if there was anything we need. My dad and I danced to a mix of a slow song that switched into a faster one and he made the perfect mix for us to dance to. I would absolutely 110% recommend them to anyone looking for a great DJ for their wedding.
There are no words to describe or explain how incredible AfterHours is. Sal not only married us, but provided the most amazing wedding for us with the help from the wonderful Sabrina. We could not have asked for a better day, and could not have done it without them!
Sal Fusco at After Hours Entertainment was a blast to work with for our wedding at Maneeley's. Right from the beginning he was very responsive and made everything so easy for us. Our first meeting with him we knew he would help make our day so much fun. He was organized and took the lead on requesting all the pertinent information from us. He was always willing to make changes for us along the way. The day of the wedding was perfect and we absolutely loved that he took pictures and videos and at the end of the night handed us a flash drive with all of them. This was so nice as we will not get our pictures back from our photographer for many weeks. Our guest still are talking about how amazing all the songs were and we had almost everyone out on the dance floor until the night was over! John and I thank you so much for everything you did to make that day so perfect for us!
Mike was absolutely amazing!!! Everything from our ceremony music to our reception was flawless! He did such a great job keeping everyone on the dance floor and partying the entire night! After our night was over Mike had my usb with my images and music all set and ready for me! I couldn't have asked for better service! Thank you doo much for making our wedding day super special!
Sal and Sabrina were absolutely fantastic-I didn't have to worry about a thing and they kept the party going! When plans changed, Sal was there to let me know what the new plan was and it was a great night. Couldn't imagine having a different dj at our wedding!
Why are there other DJs even out there?? Sal and his team are simply put – amazing! Sal’s personality is both fun and professional all at once. He knows everything there is to know about weddings and it made it so easy to trust him. We felt so comfortable with him and knew we were in good hands from the start! Thanks to Sal and Sabrina for keeping the party going all night long!!
After Hours are a great entertainment company- our DJ Mike Moscato was attentive, kind and very open to any ideas or concerns I had. Plus, he played awesome music and had our guests dancing all night...it was so fun to sit down a few days after the wedding and look at all the pics they took of all of our friends and family dancing. Highly recommend!
