Highly Recommend!

We hired Mike and Cathy as our DJ and officiant for our wedding in June 2024 and they were amazing!! They were extremely responsive to our questions throughout the planning process, professional, organized and fun!! We had so many guests tell us that the music selection was the best that they've ever heard at a wedding, and that they couldn't even take a bathroom break because every song that came on they wanted to stay on the dance floor for! The online planning form was streamline, detailed, and easy to fill out. Based on our requested song selections, Mike was able to choose music to fill the night that perfectly matched our vibe. He played my dinner song requests when he saw me sitting and eating so that I could enjoy them! His fun, enthusiastic energy was exactly what we wanted. It truly was the best night of our lives. Cathy takes candid photos and videos throughout the reception and gives them to you in a flash drive at the end of the night, which truly was the cherry on top. We found their services to be very reasonably priced compared to others, and we really felt like they cared about us as individuals and not just as another customer. Thank you After Hours for the most amazing night!! We are so happy we booked Mike and Cathy for our wedding!

Amazing night

We can’t thank Sal and his team enough for a great wedding night. My husband and I left 90 percent of the music choices up to Sal and he did not disappoint. Sal and his team are fun, professional, organized, and entertaining! From music to photobooth… everything was perfect. Our friends and family had amazing things to say about DJ Sal! Thank you for a memorable night After Hours of New England.

best day of my life thanks to after hours

I just wanted to extend my deepest thank you for the services After Hours provided at my and Iris’s wedding this past Sunday at The Woodwinds. I already texted Carlos, but he is one of the most skilled DJs I have seen. And his cousin Natasha’s MC’ing was truly what made our wedding have the upbeat energy like I have never seen at a wedding before. Even the wedding Coordinator at Woodwinds, Sergio, said he has not seen a wedding with so much uplifting and fun energy in a long time. And that couldn’t have happened without Carlos and Natasha’s expertise and skilled craft. And the Photo Booth services were phenomenal, people could not stop lining up to take pictures in there, and the scrapbook of Photo Booth pics they provided me at the end was stunning. So thank you again :)

We have worked with Sal of After Hours DJ Entertainment at multiple weddings and highly recommend them to our clients. They are professional, experienced and great at what they do. As photographers we always appreciate it when DJ's communicate well with us regarding timing etc. After Hours is great at this and they keep the festivities going smoothly so we have great moments to capture and document for the Bride and Groom.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Jim Casso from After Hours DJ for a wedding. He was very outgoing, an absolute joy to work with and truly cared about his couple. He went above and beyond to make sure his couple's day was perfect. I received a timeline one week prior to the wedding day, the wireless microphone was clear throughout the ceremony - and from what I heard from the couple and their parents, their guests danced the night away. There was an issue after the ceremony and Jim contacted me directly to make sure that his client had no issues. I highly recommend Jim for any event!
