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.

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!!

The wedding went very smoothly and Jim and his brother John had our guests dancing and having a great time the whole night.

I didn't even shop for a DJ... The week after I got engaged, I called After Hours to set up a meeting and lock in my date!

We decided to go with After Hours DJ. My husband really wanted a bigger wedding celebration and I couldn't have cared less about who our DJ was. I have to say though, that in the end I was surprisingly very pleased with how the ceremony and reception went. Our DJ, JR Burrows was... Read More so kind and made the event fun for everyone. He left all the details up to us, but when we were stuck on choices he was more than helpful. I felt as though he made our wedding as important to him as if it was his own. He was very approachable and easy to work with. His attitude was great and I even said to my husband that we really couldnt have had it any better as far as a DJ went. Even our guests went out of the way to compliment how good the DJ was. He made a nervous and anxious bride feel relaxed. He's just very kind and good at what he does and I would highly recommend JR from After Hours DJ!

He also played all of our favorites from a list we gave him for dinner music and dancing music. He also gathered the wedding party together before we were announced and explained how he would announce everyone and where they should go. He also spoke with both people who were making speeches prior to the announcements so they knew exactly when to go and what to do with the mic. Thank you so much After Hours DJ!

Sal and After Hours were referred to us through our reception venue and a friend who also used their services at their own wedding.

I also didn't realize how involved a DJ would be at a wedding, but Sal helped move the whole night along flawlessly. He also took pictures and videos of events throughout the night including the bride and groom's first dance, father/daughter and mother/son dance, and toasts!

We were so fortunate to find Sal Fusco and Jordan Cassidy from After Hours DJ to entertain for our recent wedding at Maneeleys. They went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was everything we wanted it to be and more. I am a musician and can be picky when it comes to... Read More anything music related, but their professionalism, organization, and knowledge is unparalleled to any DJ i have seen at any event. When you hire this group, your don't just get a run of the mill DJ. They start by sitting down with you on multiple occasions and help you organize and understand how the event will run and will provide you with some great recommendations to get the most out of the ceremony and reception. Sal had years of experience and knew exactly what he was doing. They coordinate with other vendors so that everyone is on the same page and your event will run smoothly. Our ceremony was perfect. Sal put a wireless lapel microphone on the groom so that every word was heard and the audience could hear everything clearly. Throughout the entire process any requests that we had were taken and provided. They are extremely accommodating. There equipment is top of the line and sounded amazing through the whole night. Sal was a wonderful MC and guided us through the evening giving us soft reminders of what was coming up next (Best Man/Maid of Honor Speeches, Cake Cutting, Last Ballad of the night, etc) and made sure that we could enjoy each moment of our special day. The night was over before we could blink but I really felt that Sal and Jordan helped us make some amazing memories. When it came time for dancing they know how to work the floor. They had everyone at our reception dancing in no time and had the room rocking all night.. My friends and family have been talking about the dancing since the night ended. Their music choices were excellent and everyone had fun. When the night came to an end, Sal approached my bride and provided her with a flash drive filled with photos and videos he had taken through the evening, as well as a copy of all the songs we had used for our ceremony and during the reception. This service was so much more than we expected from our DJ and made us so happy. If you are in search for a great DJ, please look no further. After Hours is by far the top service in the area as shown by their multiple awards and great history of reviews. You aren't just getting a DJ but an event coordinator with years of experience, and someone who wants to make your event spectacular. Thanks Sal and Jordan for helping us make some lasting memories. We wont forget all that you have done for us!

Absolutely fabulous service! Sal Fusco and Sabrina Cody were our Djs for our wedding reception, and they did an amazing job. We met with Sal first, and his jovial nature and helpful attitude soon turned what started as an errand into a truly fun and relaxed experience. Showing... Read More great flexibility and knowledge, Sal was able to help us with our song selections, as well as find the specific songs we requested. Furthermore, he gave us excellent information about how things would happen on the day itself, giving us ample time to consider our options and make final decisions. On the day itself, everything went as it should: Perfectly. Sal and Sabrina worked very well with the other vendors, seamlessly working in all of the different dances and speeches into one cohesive evening. Both Sal and Sabrina also made the BRIDE and GROOM'S wishes the priority of the evening, using their own discretion when it came to requested songs in order to fit the feel of the evening (no chicken dance for us, thanks!). The options that they give you when planning out your special evening show their expertise in this area. They had a "kissing couples" option, to be instituted if there were too many glass-clinkers (or in our case one very persistent one!). Instead of only the bride and groom kissing, Sal has a premade list of couples attending the evening, to be called at "random" (Bride and Groom get to pick who's on the list), making the event more inclusive, unique and fun! One final point about how great our experience with Sal and Sabrina was: We were not keen on paying for videography service, as that can be quite expensive, but we had prepared a choreographed first dance. Upon hearing our conundrum, Sal said "no problem!" as an included option in your DJ package, you can get limited videography service to be sure you capture that special dance, speech or moment in your evening. We cannot recommend this DJ service, or these Djs, highly enough. Thank you for our special night!
