Coming from a background of formal musical training, as well as running a personal recording studio, Jim has a passion for music that he loves to share with his clients.

For Jim Casso and his brother John - AH they were amazing! From the beginning, Jim was very attentive to what we wanted our wedding reception to look and feel like. Jim spent a couple of hours meeting with us and making sure he could make our vision a reality. He even provided special equipment for the audio for our outdoor ceremony including a wind-proof microphone for our officiant that was designed so that we could read our vows to each other without having to hold a wireless mic. (something that we requested). During the ceremony, he was working to make sure the sound was perfect. Jim's ability on the microphone as a Master of Ceremonies really upped the fun level at our reception. It's also obvious that from his years of experience he knows the appropriate pacing of special events (dances, slow dances, bouquet toss, etc.) The introductions of the wedding party were so energetic and fun. He ran the whole show with confidence and style. He also has a high level of technical skill. He has a studio at home and can provide you with edited or remixed songs to suit your needs. During the party, he did several mini-sets where he quickly mixed together with many similar songs from the same time period. It was really fun to dance to! Overall we were extremely pleased with Jim and his brother John and cannot recommend them highly enough to a bride and groom looking for a DJ who really cares about the quality of his equipment, who is fun and confident on the mic as an emcee, and who can absolutely tailor the music to your taste while ensuring that the dance floor is full all night!

My newlywed wife and I got married this past weekend and had the pleasure of Jim Casso and his brother provide the DJ entertainment for the evening. When working with Jim over the past few months in preparation for the wedding. Early on when working with Jim it was evident that he was a true professional and cared very much about delivering a quality product. My wife and I were immediately impressed by how promptly he was responding to emails, editing songs and developing a detailed timeline for all vendors to follow. It came as no surprise that Jim and his brother executed their plan to perfection. They set a great tone for the night every time they were on the microphone or behind the booth. I would highly recommend Jim and After Hours DJ Entertainment to any future bride and groom looking to hire DJ services. They were a big part of making our night a very memorable one.

We recently got married 10/15/16 at the Woodwinds in Branford, CT. We had seen After Hours DJ previously at a friend’s wedding and were immediately impressed. Much to our delight After Hours was reasonably priced compared to other DJs in the area. We were paired with Jim and his assistant/brother John. We immediately felt comfortable with Jim from our first planning meeting. Jim went out of his way to meet us at a location that was convenient for us. Jim and After Hours are so organized! They create an agenda of the entire night to ensure it goes off without a hitch. Jim also always made himself available by phone/email. I would randomly think of songs that I would want played at the wedding and he would immediately add these songs to our planning forms. We also had specifically wanted Jim to play back recordings of the Best Man/Maid of Honor speech at the end of the night to incorporate into our closing songs. He was able to record the speeches as they were being given and fulfill our request. I could not have imagined a more perfect night! Our guests had a blast and I did not get off the dance floor myself all night. Another nice touch is that they snap photos and video throughout the night that they share with you afterwards. We highly recommend After Hours! They are so experienced and truly a great vendor to work with. Thank you Jim & John for a night we will never forget!
