Sal and After Hours were referred to us through our reception venue and a friend who also used their services at their own wedding. Sal was easy to work with from day one, making it clear that our day would run as smoothly as possible and the exact way that we wanted it. Thanks to Sal's expertise, he gave very insightful tips and opinions on the order and layout of a smooth reception that really helped us make some decisions with our wedding planning. With both sides of the family being large and European, Sal integrated Portuguese and Polish music into our wedding very smoothly. It was evident that everyone at the wedding had a great time! 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! Thank you to everyone at After Hours for being a part of our wedding and helping to make it the best night of our lives!
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!!!
My husband and I tied the knot on June 25, 2016 at The Riverview in Simsbury. We were lucky to have Sean Crawford as our DJ and he brought along with him an assistant, Norm Blanchard. The two were wonderful! They had everything set up and ready to go. Prior to the wedding we had several FaceTime calls with Sean who was very accommodating. With our busy schedules we weren't able to meet in person but we were able to video chat all of our planning. He was also available through texting which made it very easy to plan and get answers quickly. Sean was a great emcee, and even hosted The Shoe Game for us after dinner was served. 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!
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 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!
After Hours DJ was great throughout the whole process. They were very responsive to my emails and answered any questions I had within 24 hours. They coordinated with my other vendors so everything went very smoothly the day of the wedding. They got everyone up and dancing. The wedding was great!
J.R. and Chelsea did a fabulous job in providing DJ services for our wedding! They delivered a great playlist and help manage our wedding without any issues. Our friends are still talking about how much fun they hard at our event 4 weeks later! I would highly recommend this DJ team!
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 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!
Thanks to Sal Fusco and the team for doing an amazing job at our wedding. Sal was super responsive and cared for our every need! He was wonderful, and I highly recommend! Thank you for a great day!
Sal and his entire crew at After Hours helped us create a musically AMAZING wedding day! Throughout the planning process, Sal quickly responded to e-mails and was very thorough in tending to details. They played all of the music we hoped to hear, and even other great songs that fit in perfectly! The music was flawlessly executed and the flash drive of pictures/videos immediately following the reception was an amazing bonus. Also, I highly recommend their photo montage- we had a small projector near the bar and it was a hit. After Hours is your way to go for music if you are looking for fun and perfection at your wedding day!!
We contracted JR Burrows as our wedding DJ and couldn't be more pleased! From our planning meetings (where we got along well enough to constantly find ourselves in awesome tangental conversation) to his help in making special announcements during the event (we didn't have a standard reception), we found him to be extremely professional and accommodating. Our guests kept commenting to us that his selection of music was perfect and the dance floor stayed consistently busy. They also provided us a great selection of candid photos of the reception tent and guests having a good time. We highly recommend JR and his team, and suggest you book them for your upcoming wedding right away!
Jim and his brother were awesome at our wedding! They did everything we wanted and kept us informed when people made requests, or when we had to cut the cake, do the anniversary dance, etc. Even when we first met Jim he listened to our suggestions and offered his own with a kind open mind. Sal was helpful in getting us our Gobo projection and did a demo. We wish we knew other local couples who were getting married so we could tell them to go with After Hours.
Absolutely amazing! We had Sal and Sabrina for our wedding at Saint Clements Castle and they know how to party!! Sal was awesome to work with through the entire process, had great advice, and was even able to make last minute changes on the wedding day. They knew exactly how to get the crowd going and the wedding ran so smoothly. They ran the show so well, we didn't worry about a single thing the entire night. They were even able to get my almost 80 year old grandparents jamming out on the dance floor! Not only were they amazing at entertaining, but they took awesome pictures and videos and gave us a USB of them that same night! All of my guests have commented on how they cannot get over how much fun they had. If you want your guests (and yourselves) to have an absolute blast at your wedding, After Hours is the way to go. Sal and Sabrina, thank you so much for making our wedding one that people can't stop talking about!! Sincerely - Morgan
Mike Moscato was a fantastic DJ! He made our wedding day perfect. No one was even thinking about the horrible weather outside, because Mike had the Partying going on the dance floor even before the dance floor "officially" opened! Before our wedding Mike met with us, got to know our taste in music and helped put a plan together for our event. He was also available via phone or text and was very patient with us selecting music even down to the day before the wedding! People never stopped dancing that night and haven't stopped talking about how much fun they had...so thank you to Mike and After Hours for helping to make our wedding day so memorable!
It was amazing to work with Sal from After Hours for our wedding! He knows EVERYTHING about putting together an awesome wedding reception and gave us helpful suggestions for music and advice on which parts of the reception to include and when. His expertise made our reception perfect and he even got ALL of our guests (even the most reluctant dancers) on the dance floor for the most amazing conga line ever! Thank you Sal, for the fun and the memories!
Sean was so awesome and very easy to work with. He made the night perfect and I didn't have to worry about a thing! Great personality and creativity. Will always recommend him and after hours to anyone interested
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 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!
JR Burrows was our Wedding Officiate and DJ and we could not have asked for a better partner. He went above and beyond the requested services. JR was like a wedding planner, he worked well with our venue consultant and gave us great ideas on how to make our wedding uniquely ours. He even helped us to avoid a wine uncorking crisis! I have already had JR as a DJ for a corporate event and will continue to use and recommend After Hours DJ Entertainment in the future
We are THRILLED that we chose After Hours DJ Entertainment for our wedding in August! Sean and Norm did an absolutely amazing job! Sean video-chatted with us a few times before the wedding day. He sent us forms to fill out beforehand which made the planning a breeze. Sean was incredibly organized and was in control of all of the wedding party introductions and timing of the cake cutting, etc. He was like an MC and wedding planner combined! Sean and Norm played all the music we requested and totally got the vibe we were looking for during cocktail hour, dinner, and the reception. We danced all night long and had more fun than we EVER imagined! We have had so many guests tell us that they are the best DJ's they've ever heard at a wedding. We can't recommend them enough!
Plain and simple. The price isn't hidden, the service is amazing, and our DJ, Peter Devine, was the greatest person to work with. His knowledge and passion for music is unmatched by anyone else we met with before the wedding. I would highly recommend anyone to seek out After Hours for your wedding DJ needs. Thanks again for a wonderful wedding experience Peter!

Dj Sal and Dj Sabrina were absolutely amazing! So easy to work with. They made sure everything was covered.
My wife Katie and I had the pleasure of working with Pete Devine from After Hours DJ. Pete was AWESOME we met with him 3 times before our wedding and he made it clear from day 1 that our wedding would be just the way we wanted it. Pete made sure everything went smoothly and his playlist from the first song to the last was PERFECT. I cannot say enough about all that Pete did for us. I strongly recommend Pete for any event.
Peter was absolutely awesome. From the day we met with him he made us feel very at ease with the whole process. Working with him was one of the first decisions we made and definitely one of the best. It set the stage for us to have an amazing wedding, and it was great to have that peace of mind knowing that this was one less major thing we had to worry about. We were really nitpicky and detailed during the whole process but Peter was right there with us and made sure to get everything exactly how we wanted it. Leading up to our wedding day we knew Peter was going to deliver, and he came through for us in a huge way. We couldn't recommend him any more highly!
My wife and I chose Sal and Sabrina from After Hours DJ Entertainment for our formal fall evening wedding last weekend and it was hands down the BEST choice we made for our big day through two years of planning! From the very start, Sal made us feel at ease and was so helpful to two brides who didn't know the first thing about planning a wedding. One of the first things we told Sal was that we were looking for a DJ who would be able to get the crowd up on the dance floor - we were so worried that our families would spend the night in their seats! The night of our wedding we were sitting down and thought that a large number of our guests must have left early because no one was at the tables - we looked back to the dance floor and the truth was they had all got up to dance! All of our family and friends over the last few days have told us that ours was the best wedding they've ever been to - and in the same breath they sing the praises of Sal and his team. Sabrina even worked magic to successfully pin my bustle - which had come undone twice earlier in the night and kept falling out. Sal handled every last detail, and even made sure our other vendors got a final copy of the day-of timeline. We cannot recommend After Hours DJ Entertainment highly enough - they make us wish we had another wedding to plan just to keep working with them!
We used After Hours for our wedding this Fall. From the second we met Sal, we knew that he was incredibly experienced and we could trust them with our party! We were able to draw on his suggestions and experience in order to make the right choices to capture both our personalities and our desired style for the evening. After Hours an incredible job both before and during the wedding. We were able to set up most of our itinerary online, and Sal gave us great advice on how to keep the wedding moving and the energy high. He sent all of our vendors a timeline for the night so everyone knew where to be. The attention to detail was absolutely incredible and took the stress out of our planning. The day of the wedding, Sal and Jordan kept our dance floor moving all night, and played a nice mix of songs we'd requested and similar styles of music that got our guests moving. Sal was a great MC and is just all around a great guy in general! Jordan was super sweet and is also fantastic! We got a lot of compliments on how fun the night was from our guests, so all around a big success. I will say, the most incredible thing that After Hours provides is the memory stick at the end of the night with photos and videos. While planning this little service was an after thought. However, now that the wedding is over, I am so happy that I can look at the photos and watch the toasts and first dance as many times as I'd like. We would give Sal, Jordan and the rest of After Hours a 10 star rating if we could. They really took the time and effort to make our day extraordinary.
Do yourself a favor and save some time. Just hire After Hours and request Jim Casso. I just got married on 10/10/15 and my wedding and reception were beyond extraordinary. The level of warmth and professionalism that my husband and I were presented with, from day 1 of hiring After Hours, was outstanding. Jim helped us organize our reception in such a way that we felt so incredibly prepared, and that's not something most bride and grooms will say. Jim was fantastic on the mic and kept the evening flowing so smoothly that my husband and I were really able to enjoy ourselves. My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Jim and our experience with After Hours. We are incredibly appreciative and grateful that we very clearly made the best choice out there. Thanks again Jim. We're big fans! Wooooooo!!!! Liz & Sean
