JR was the DJ for my wedding. He was GREAT! He kept in contact throughout the wedding planning process, always checking in and making sure that our needs and questions were taken care of. He was extremely helpful in working with us to create a wedding schedule. We had 3 meetings to make sure that all our music was to our satisfaction. JR was willing to work us via skype since we live in TX and our wedding was held in CT. On the day of the wedding, JR made sure the timeline of the wedding went smoothly, constantly checking in with me to make sure I was ready to move forward with the wedding schedule. He played a great selection of music and was very attentive to my Dos and Donts playlist. If I requested a switch in genre, he was very quick to follow my queue. Finally, he was a FANTASTIC voice for an MC. Many compliments from guests on him. The dance floor was packed all night!! Book JR!

JR was simply AMAZING!! I loved him so much and the work that he did preparing for our day that I recommended him to my best friend who is getting married next year and she just booked him as well! Everything from start to finish was planned perfectly. JR and the team at After Hours DJ are so professional, kind, helpful, and considerate. They are great communicators and planners! I was so floored by the timeline they create for the day of the event and how on-top of everything JR and his assistant were the day of the wedding - we could not have asked for more. We also selected to have a photobooth at our wedding run by After Hours and the team that ran the photo booth was also amazing! They even made a scrapbook of all the photos that were taken for me and my husband to bring home at the end of the wedding. We've looked at the scrapbook numerous times since the wedding to relive the excitement of that day. We cannot thank JR, his team, and the staff at After Hours DJ enough for everything they did to contribute to the success of our wedding day!

We had the pleasure of working with DJ JR Burrows of After Hours DJ Entertainment for our wedding reception in June, 2017. From our first meeting with him to our final handshake after the reception, JR was nothing short of exceptional! His experience, knowledge, and feel for his profession made the whole experience smooth and worry-free. We had some non-traditional requests regarding the flow of the reception and music selection and he really hit it out of the park! He had a wealth of input during the planning process and his stage presence and time pacing during the reception kept the guests, venue, and vendors in sync every step of the way. Don't hesitate to book DJ JR Burrows of After Hours DJ Entertainment!
