"Working with Amplify was amazing. They might be the only company that's mastered both the science and the art of doing the music for a wedding. On the front end, they walk you through every step of the process for how you want the reception to unfold, how you want the DJ to MC the event, etc. For the actual reception, they help you pinpoint the genres you'd like to hear and the one's you don't. Everyone had an amazing time and loved the playlist our DJ came up with. Knowing that every aspect of the music and audio was taken care of because the staff at Amplify walked us through every detail, and knew which questions to ask (questions we hadn't even thought of), all of that took a HUGE amount of stress off our plate on the wedding day. During every phase of the planning, and on the wedding day, everything by Amplify was handled with consummate professionalism. I would not book a DJ until you at least meet with the guys at Amplify and get a sense for their process and the value (and peace of mind) they can provide for your big day."

"Great DJ service. Everyone had a blast with the entertainment that was provided. Dillon and his assistant were very professional, courteous, and friendly. Dillon was great and it was funny to see the constant evolution of his hairstyle throughout the night!"

"From our first meeting back in October 2016 up until our wedding October 2017, Nate and Dillon(our DJ) have been amazing! Nate really eased my mind about having a DJ at the wedding, he assured me that Amplify was not a cheesy 90s DJ company and he was right! Our first meeting he talked with us for about an hour, getting to know us. Asking what type of music we like, didn't like, and our overall vision for the wedding. He gave us the option to pick our own DJ, but after meeting him we felt comfortable having him match us up with someone. Our DJ, Dillon, was great! He is so laid back but super fun. A couple days before the wedding, we were worried that Tropical Storm Nate (haha) would affect our outdoor wedding. We were able to last minute move our reception indoors at the Southwood Clubhouse but still have our ceremony outdoors. Nate/Dillon were super understanding and flexible about the whole thing. He set up two systems for us and made sure everything ran smoothly. Luckily it did not rain! He picked the energy back up when people went outside to smoke cigars and drew them back in, so it was never dead and there were people always dancing. We are so thankful that we chose Amplify, their price was fair especially for everything they provide. I recommend Amplify to any couple searching for a DJ or to anyone who needs one for an event. You will not be disappointed! Thank you so much Amplify!!!"

Dillon was our DJ, and did a great job on the lighting and music selection. He is full of energy, and kept everyone dancing and having a good time! We have received so many compliments on the wedding, and what a great time everyone had!"

"Most people fear their wedding day won't measure up to everyone's expectations and I know I feared it wouldn't be fun for my guests because we weren't serving alcohol and I was a nervous wreck. But the DJ Dillon was so awesome! He not only kept everyone involved and dancing, he took requests and was so interactive, I was quite impressed with how well our special day turned out to be the most amazing and fun experience for not only us but all of our guests as well!! They were very professional and adapted everything to meet our needs and beyond! I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for highly talented DJ's for entertainment at any event, especially weddings where kids are present! It was enjoyable for all ages and I couldn't have imagined a better turn out! Any future event in need of a DJ or any outstanding entertainment services I know who to call!"

"Awesome job Dillon!! He and his assistant (Drew) were super sweet and gave us exactly what we wanted for ceremony and reception. It was a beach ceremony and it was raining the entire time, they remained patient and willing to play for us no matter what. Music was a blast at the reception and we are very pleased, thank you so so much! Extremely well run business."

"We loved our experience with Amplify! When I was searching for a DJ, I knew right away after checking out the Amplify website that I wanted to hire them. And I got even more excited after meeting with Nate and telling him our vision for our reception, styles of music we liked, etc. They really invested time in making sure our reception reflected our personalities. Not just the dancing music - but the cocktail hour, toasts, announcements, everything. They were willing to play all of our weird indie music requests, didn't play cheesy songs, and didn't do anything ridiculous or embarrassing during our reception (I have seen some weird DJs...) Dillon was such a fun DJ - we only met with him once before the wedding, and communicated briefly the week-of... but when we showed up to the reception it was like seeing an old friend! He was super fun & very flexible. He patiently worked with us and the delays/time changes of the day. He was great at keeping everyone entertained and the reception rolling - all while making sure everyone was relaxed and having a great time. I honestly had no worries during my wedding reception and wish I could have slowed it all down to enjoy it more! Random highlight: Dillon found an acoustic version of the song we played to walk into our reception, and played it during our cake-cutting. My husband and I both got excited hearing it again, and we even had guests comment on how beautiful it was. It was the little things like that gem that made it so special! :) I highly recommend Amplify - great time for the guests AND the couple! Not your average DJs, and very professional and experienced. Thanks Dillon, Nate & Amplify!"

"DJ Dillon was great. He was on time, and executed our wedding ceremony's music plan perfectly. He was also able to accommodate our specific reception music requests as well. We appreciate Dillon's cooperation in calling out the answers to our corny wedding quiz. He did a great job, no drama, and got our family out there dancing! We didn't have to worry about a thing."

Some of my favorite artists include the bands Anberlin,Ellie Goulding, Smallpools, Third Eye Blind, Switchfoot, and Owl City, 30 Seconds To Mars and Donna Lewis.
What has been your most memorable wedding experience so far?
I was asked to play guitar during the ceremony of an old friend from high school. I played “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong while his bride-to-be walked down the isle. It was a heartwarming experience, especially since I’d known the groom for such a long time.
