"Every step of the planning process was made easy with Amplify Entertainment! Initially we spoke to Nate, the gentleman in charge, who was extremely helpful and transparent. My husband and I live in Tampa, which made some of the planning more difficult. But not with Nate! He shared their website (which also made planning much easier!) and we were able to choose our DJ for our event. We picked Drew who ended up executing our wedding and reception ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY. At no point in time was I ever disappointed with which song he was playing at any point in time. His sole purpose for being there was making sure our day went off without a hitch and he definitely delivered! We couldn’t be happier with Amplify and strongly suggest them to anyone looking to hire the best!"

"Had excellent communication with Nate leading up to my daughter's wedding, including Skype meetings that allowed my daughter to talk about her music preferences. Very professional service. Our DJ was Drew, and he did an excellent job--great personality and responsiveness to the energy on the dance floor! Highly recommend them to provide music for your wedding reception!"
Margaret, Mother of the Bride
"Drew was the DJ at our wedding and we had an amazing experience, he was kind, easy to work with, professional and was very flexible with last minute changes made on the wedding day. We had a few technical difficulties but Drew was completely on top of it and I would have never noticed if he hadn't mentioned it to me. All of my guests had a great time, he played a variety of music and really listened to the genres we discussed with him during our meeting before the wedding."

Clients Review Drew
Some fun facts about Drew
- Drew was born & raised in the great state of New Jersey. He decided to move out on his own at the age of 19 to pursue his dream of attending Florida State University (Go Noles!).
- Drew started a clothing company back in high school. He sold a bunch of shirts, and considered it quite the learning experience into the world of entrepreneurship. One design was a mash-up of Miley Cyrus and Einstein. The brand strived to be… different.
- Drew is an avid reader, reading anything from philosophy to religion to fiction to business. Simply put, if the topic is interesting, he’ll read it. Used bookstores are often a place of solitude for him.
What is your favorite song to play while DJing?
I’ve always been a sucker for the classics. Some songs are just that good that they endure through the decades, and a song that I think epitomizes that is “September” by Earth, Wind, & Fire.
Who are your favorite artists?
I dabble often in different genres, and have favorite artists in all. While going through a metal phase in high school, my favorite band was August Burns Red. I can’t say I listen to that type of music as much anymore, but that band I still listen to religiously. In EDM, Porter Robinson is someone who no matter what he comes out with, I find myself loving. Hip-hop, I’d have to go with my favorite artist as Kendrick Lamar, and my favorite album being Dr. Dre’s 2001.
What has been your most memorable wedding experience so far?
I think some of my favorite experiences have come from people taking it upon themselves to turn the night into a karaoke session. As a self-proclaimed karaoke connoisseur, seeing people going all out on a track brings me great joy. And when the crowd is behind it, there’s nothing like it.
What song is cued up on your phone/iPod right now?
I Want It That Way – Backstreet Boys (…don’t judge me)
Anything else you’d like to say?
I would absolutely love to DJ your wedding. I don’t think anything gives me greater joy than making someone else’s day. And there are few examples that better represents that, then DJing the reception for a newly wed couple. One disclaimer though: If you choose me, Wannabe by Spice Girls will be being played at some point in the night.
