"I originally hired another DJ, but when I met Nate and Esther, I knew I HAD to have them!! Esther was AMAZING and all of the guests raved about her! Great service, friendly, professional, showed up early, and played awesome music! I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to have an amazing experience!"

"Our DJ Esther was the BEST. She played the best music, kept people dancing and even joined in with all the fun. I HIGHLY recommend her for any entertainment needs that people may have. I know I will use her for any needs we have in the future."

"Esther was amazing. We first worked with Nate upon a recommendation from a friend. He was easy to talk to and work with given our needs. The questions he initially asked helped give him a great idea. Esther was available and after reviewing her profile on our website we felt that she would be the best DJ given our type of wedding and the guests who would be dancing (a bunch of younger adults that preferred to dance to fun/corny older music). Esther helped organize us to make the introductions, she made announcements, took requests, got on the dance floor when I (groom) requested that she come hang out. She was easy to work with, as was Nate. They were incredibly accommodating to not only my wife and myself, but also to the guests as they made their requests."

"Esther and Nate did our wedding at the Woman's Club in Tallahassee. I heard from our wedding planners that we had to book them well in advance of the event. To be honest, I was really skeptical. I've seen DJs at weddings. They sit behind their laptops and judge your song requests. I was also really worried about having a dead dance floor. Esther and Nate took care of everything. The play list was a perfect combination of our in-advance requests. Esther personally led several mini dance events, including modified line dances and a face-to-face singing contest to "I Would Walk 500 Miles." The energy was amazing, drawing children and elders to the dance floor! Needless to say, Esther and Nate have our highest recommendation."

"Esther was the DJ of our wedding and she totally rocked! She got everyone on the dance floor and understood all of our different requests for music. She kept up very on time which allowed for much more fun on the dance floor! She made everyone feel so comfortable and even got out on the dance floor to make sure we knew how to wobble correctly. I would definitely recommend Esther for any function!"

"Our DJ emailed me the night before saying he was sick and was not going to be able to make it and for a split second my heart dropped however he already had it covered and we ended up getting Esther. She ended up doing an amazing job. My wedding crowd was not one for dancing and I knew this going in, however she got out there and got things going and it seemed to pick up from there! They did a really great job and this is a really great team that works together! I highly recommend them for any event!!"

"The staff at Amplify were excellent! They helped with the planning process in detail and made it easy to design the perfect event. I cannot brag enough about our DJ (Esther), who helped tremendously the day of the wedding by acting as our master of ceremonies, announcing each event and keeping us on track with our timeline, and even stepped in to help out in other ways as needed. She also played all of our favorite music and helped everyone to have an amazing time! We highly recommend Amplify!!!"

"Our experience with Amplify Entertainment was awesome! Very professional and organized. Our DJ was the only female DJ and was her first wedding with Amplify Entertainment and she did an amazing job. She kept everything right on track and had everyone dancing all night. I would highly recommend her!"

"What a great party we had at the Doubletree Hilton Ballroom Tallahassee Saturday night - Best DJ ever! Esther was a blast and she really got people up dancing - we had a playlist and she filled in knowing what music we were enjoying. Very professional - entertaining - set up early and closed out late for us!"

Clients Review Esther
Esther was born in Indiana and raised in Tallahassee. She grew up completely surrounded by the arts in a very musical and creative family. After jumping around from instrument to instrument, dabbling in piano, bass, and guitar, she finally found her passion for singing. Years of voice lessons, chorus classes, and musicals eventually landed her in the Choral Music Education major at FSU. But she eventually settled into the study of psychology and is currently attending Florida State.
