My husband and I could not have been happier with After Hours DJ Entertainment. This Dynamic duo did a phenomenal job MCing and DJing our wedding as well as Officiating our Wedding. When I called to set-up our initial appointment I was matched with Chris and Rob, and I am so glad we did. After meeting with Chris, I knew we would pick them for our September wedding. We felt Chris understood us and our kind of music and the kind of atmosphere we were hoping for. We were planning our wedding from TX to have in CT, and Chris was there every step of the way. He made sure he could pronounce the bridal party and parent's names and he went over all the details of how the night would run. Chris was easy to get in touch within the weeks and days leading up to our wedding and he always got back to us promptly. From our creativity session when we picked out all the music, to the day of the wedding - he was professional, responsive and really listened to all our (and our guests) requests. All our guests couldn’t say enough about the music and the DJ. Which is really all we wanted, was everyone to have a great time and not stop dancing. There were people of all generations at the wedding and the music worked for everyone! He cared about the subtle details and showed that he wanted to make our experience unique and matching our theme/tone. We got SO many compliments on the music and the event overall. Chris and Rob really set the stage for our wedding. WE would Definitely Hire again! I cannot write it enough but THANK YOU, Chris and Rob, for helping to make our wedding day so amazing!

After Hours DJ was amazing to us during the whole wedding planning process. DJ Chris Garcia was very wonderful to us. His flexibility and attention to detail helped to make the planning process a breeze. He even sent a detailed itinerary to our other vendors to help them all be on the same page. He was flexible in working with our other vendors. He was great at fulfilling our requests with some atypical song choices. On our wedding day his assistant DJ Carlos was amazing as well! They made such wonderful music choices that fit the style of what we wanted and kept our guests on the dance floor! Additionally, After Hours is one of the few entertainment companies that will not charge for an additional set up we had one for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and usually DJ companies would charge extra for us, but not After Hours! We worked with Nathalie for lighting and she was upfront and honest about what colors and types of lighting would work for our day and was able to to a color change when we switched from dinner to the reception. I would definitely choose After Hours Entertainment for an event in the future.

DJ Chris Garcia was exceptional to work with. From the initial meeting to the very last second of the main event, he was on point! So organized, so relaxed...and SO fun! He was extremely easy to work with; prompt to every meeting and responded instantly to emails/phone calls. More specifically, our last minute emergency when we asked him to also be our officiant just one month out! When I was stressed and worried, he was calm and focused...he helped us put together a ceremony which fit us perfectly - we actually received numerous compliments on the ceremony itself! We needed a DJ who was bilingual and able to make the night fun and memorable for all guests (Latino or American roots). This was no problem for Chris! He also advised us on some of our important dance choices, as well as, merging two songs for our first dance. He gave us options and let us choose how the transition would go. We truly valued his professional input and are so thankful to have had his experience guiding our most important moments. And as for the party, I am speechless... I felt as though we had hardly provided enough song suggestions, and yet, the night of, his song choices were SPOT ON! I almost spent too much time dancing because the dance floor was just that popular!!! At the end of the night, Chris made sure to find me and slapped a USB bracelet on my wrist. We did not hire a videographer. I thought it was a way to save some cost and that we'd never watch it. This "extra" AfterHours provides is PRICELESS. Hands down. We are incredible grateful to have videos of our special dances, photos on the dance floor AND the amazing speeches given by some of our closest loved ones. Having these to look back on and smile/laugh/cry is something we will always cherish. THANK YOU Chris!!!! & After Hours Entertainment Anyone looking for someone to DJ and/or be officiant to their wedding should definitely go to Chris at After Hours!
