About Afterhours Wedding Entertainment

Afterhours Wedding Entertainment
Personal Service

We provide custom entertainment for your wedding based on personal service, experience and professionalism at an exceptional value.

Our personal service begins the moment we get your first contact phone call or e-mail. After a quick check of our calendar, we will respond within 24 hours to give you some preliminary information about our services and we will request an informal meeting to get to know you and your future spouse. WE WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU so we can plan a wonderful wedding that really reflects who you are as a couple, your likes and dislikes, your wants and needs and your wedding vision. We also want you to get to know us as well. We don't believe in high-pressure sales. After our meeting we will grant you access to our convenient online wedding planner, where we will upload all the information we discussed during our initial meeting, and we give you an opportunity to access, review and modify your wedding plans and information from the convenience of your home, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Of course, we will continue to be available for face-to-face interviews and follow up meetings to discuss any concerns, changes or questions you might have.

Experience and Professionalism When you choose our service, you are hiring much more than a guy who stands behind the booth pressing a few buttons to play music. Our service includes a two man team, a DJ and an MC who have worked together and can carefully guide you and your guests through every stage of your wedding reception, creating a well-synchronized, professional production. There will be no uncomfortable silent pauses. Our two performer approach ensures continuity throughout the evening as we take you and your guests through a truly memorable experience on your wedding day. As our Master of Ceremonies addresses you and your guests, our DJ/Sound Engineer provides music at the appropriate levels to avoid that dreaded feedback and to make sure everyone can hear.

Over the years we have performed over 2000 beautiful and unique wedding and we can honestly say no two weddings are alike. Trends change, the music changes, and of course, no two couples are ever the same. That's the beauty of wedding entertainment.

Our professional service includes on-site meetings, unlimited access to our internet planner, and professional equipment, operated professionally, by professional performers. We can honestly say, compared to most of the other DJ's in our area, we have one of the best sound systems. With two professional audio engineers, we can tune our equipment for any room/location. We can also provide professional mixing and sound for your wedding ceremony, in case you choose to hire a professional musician (or family friend) to perform at your ceremony.

Throughout your wedding reception you can be confident that, as long as we're in charge, we will make sure everything flows smoothly. Your Wedding is a once in a lifetime experience. The entertainment you choose will either make or break your day. Not all Disc Jockeys are the same. Some are great club DJs. Some are great for private parties. And then there's Professional Wedding Disc Jockeys. Hiring the right Disc Jockeys for your wedding will make a huge difference on the overall outcome of your wedding.

Value
Here's an interesting fact. A recent poll by St. Louis Bride Magazine found out that, given a chance to do it all over again, a large majority of brides (over 70%) would have spent more on their entertainment and spent more time researching their DJ. Every time I hear a "bad wedding DJ" story, I always ask two questions: How many DJ's did you interview before you made your final selection? Not surprisingly, the majority of brides who have "bad DJ" stories didn't take the time to interview at least 3-5 DJ's before they made their selection. And, not surprisingly, the primary decision made was not the service, but price. This is where it's often said that "you get what you pay for."

Our pricing structure is based on National standards and in line with the American DJ Association's average for Professional Wedding Entertainers. We believe in quoting our services after we know exactly what you want. Because no two weddings are the same, we don't believe in "blind" quotes. We want to know exactly what you want, and we will give you a quote for the exact services you choose. So we invite you to give us a call. Let's sit down and talk about your wedding and let's make your wedding a truly memorable occasion for you and your guests.

    Carlos was THE BEST DJ! From the first day that we started planning our song list, months ago, he constantly followed up to make sure that everything went the way we wanted it. We had very specific songs to be played for our Disney wedding reception, and everyone LOVED IT! From playing a different disney song per table for meal seating, to our very disneyland grand entrance. He wonderfully set aside and afternoon, about a month before the wedding, to meet at the venue so he could learn the set-up, review our chosen song lists, as well as help up come up with elaborate plans and staging for our bouquet toss and garter throw. They ended up being highlights of the evening! I would highly recommend him for any party/wedding/reception. He kept to our playlist the entire night, and helped make our night so very magical. He'll play special tracks as well! He played the track I recorded for my husband as a surprise for our first dance. It sounded BEAUTIFUL over his sound system. Thank you, Carlos!

    Korinne, It was a pleasure to work with you. I love doing themed weddings and yours was especially fun. I wish you many years of happiness as husband and wife. And Robert... your expression was PRICELESS when you heard your wife singing your first dance. It will be a much treasured memory for years to come!

    As I was telling everyone I was planning a wedding two states away and had not met my DJ everyone was giving me positive thoughts but they were worried. I told them I had a good feeling about all Carlos. It was Carlos who was calming me down and saying we got this Theresa.

    Carlos was amazing when I called he called or text right back and his website is very customer friendly. We went over the timeline about a month of the wedding and he also stated I could change anything on the site until the last week. One thing I noticed about this man not only does he get the party started, but also notices all the little things. He noticed our guest were not paying attention to the one thing that I wanted them to see which was our framed inserts from our high school year(I married my high school sweetheart) which we had signed in our senior yearbook. Carlos took the time to capture the special moment and make a memory, he read to our guest the words Michael and I had written to each other oh so long ago (really not that long ago wink wink). Thank you Carlos for making our night so special!

    Carlos with Afterhours Entertainment did a wonderful job as the DJ for our daughters wedding August 1st, 2015 at Orcutt Ranch. His attention to detail was spot on and his demeanor was very professional. I had never seen Carlos DJ a wedding before and I was very delighted at how he was not overbearing but a wonderful enhancement to the event. He was courteous and paid attention to detail and provided the exact music we desired. He even made the perfect suggestion for my daughter to walk down the aisle to The Bridal March by Jonathan Caine! It gave me chills! Overall, we highly recommend Carlos. We have been to weddings where people have a cousin or a person who thinks they are a DJ and it honestly makes a huge difference when you hire a professional like Carlos.
