"Just ask for Patrick - do yourself that favor because he is seriously the best DJ and gave us the best ceremony and reception! He was extremely helpful on the day of helping my husband cut the music down to a specific progression for my processional and did an excellent job guiding everyone through the evening! The personalized service and attention to detail really made our experience with Amplify amazing and I would not hesitate to have them DJ any event in the future!"

"Wow! Amplify Entertainment is a wedding planner dream come true! From start to finish, they were able to meet with me to discuss my questions (via face to face meeting or FaceTime) and offered helpful suggestions. Nate, the owner, has really thought through the wedding planning process in regards to music and offers two very comprehensive planning packets for the bride (and groom) to be. Those planners are very thorough and brings to light some of the things the average person may not even think about. We chose Patrick as our DJ and can't say enough about him. He was on time, communicated well, and was flexible as we had some small timeline change requests. I would hire Amplify Entertainment again and feel as though we got the best value for our money by hiring this service!"

"Just wanted to thank you for all your help in making Anja and Patrick's wedding so wonderful on Saturday. In particular, I cannot tell you enough how terrific DJ Patrick was. Not only was he a great DJ, but his we're-all-in-this-together attitude was amazing - and a real lifesaver! He even helped me with a last minute change to the tablecloths! I would have no hesitation recommending your company in the future. In fact, I've already done so!"
"Amplify is amazing, absolutely wonderful. From the first time we met with them to the night of our wedding we loved everything about them. Patrick was so easy to work with and has a great attitude. The guests loved him and he did a wonderful job. Everyone that attended kept telling me how great he did. I would definitely use this company again!"

"Amplify Entertainment was recommended to us by nearly every single vendor we spoke to, they were all like "If you are going to do a DJ, then you HAVE to get Amplify!" We couldn't be more happier! Our DJ was Patrick and he really kept the dance floor going! The DJ can totally make or break your wedding reception and it felt so good when guests would come up just to tell you that they love the music. Nate and his team are true professionals, and so detailed oriented. They make it really easy for you to pick out the songs you want to hear, as well as the ones you really don't want played. They are really great at reading the crowd too and seeing what genre is working best. We couldn't have been more happier!!"

Nate and Patrick kept in constant communication with us so we could share our thoughts, wishes, and requests the entire planning process to ensure our dream wedding was achieved! I literally could not change a single thing about this company! Absolutely highly and completely recommend to anyone looking for a DJ for any event! Look NO further than Amplify!!! If you want the perfect music for your event, these are your guys!!!"

"Nate helped us set up our reservation and made the planning process so smooth and easy. Patrick was our DJ and was awesome and easy to work with. Everyone wanted his playlist at the reception! Amplify Entertainment was by the far one of the most professional and kind vendor we worked with for our wedding. I would highly recommend their services for any wedding, we had a blast."

"Nate and Patrick were too much fun to work with. We felt like old friends listening to our favorite music during our meetings prior to the wedding. The day of the wedding Patrick was awesome. He was friendly and polite to all our guests, even the pushy ones. He accommodated all of our music needs and even put a stop to a certain song we forgot to include in our "DO NOT PLAY LIST." We were very grateful for that. He got everybody on the dance floor and carefully guided our guests from the cocktail hour to our faux sparkle send off. I recommend Amplify Entertainment for all you future brides, and don't forget to ask for Patrick."

"My groom and I could not have asked for a better DJ service than Amplify Entertainment! From my first contact with Nate, I felt so comfortable and so confident in his ability. The service that they provide is above and beyond what I had expected from a DJ. The DJ we were paired with was Patrick. Patrick was AMAZING! .... Did I say he was amazing?! If you're planning your big day, I would hands down recommend Amplify Entertainment!!"
Melissa + Harry
"Meeting and working with Nate and Patrick at Amplify was so much fun! They make the process so easy and stress free by providing you with a ceremony and reception questionnaire to complete. You get to pick what you want, when you want it for the ceremony and what you want for the reception. The best part was the "do not play list"! Even if your DJ gets the request, if it's on that list it doesn't get played! We had been told that your DJ could make or break your reception and we totally agree with that. Patrick handled the wedding party introductions flawlessly, played all of our requests and what our guests wanted. We told them that we wanted our reception to be a total party and fun and they did not disappoint! We are still receiving comments about how much fun our reception was! Would we recommend Amplify Entertainment, absolutely!"
Donna + Lynne
"When we started wedding planning I was pretty adamant that I did NOT want a DJ. I've been to too many weddings with obnoxious DJs...but my mom convinced me to do it for several reasons. Choosing Amplify Entertainment was one of the best decisions that I could have made and I would do it again 100 times over. They did plenty of prep work with phone calls and surveys to know exactly what we wanted, what we didn't want and how the evening was going to go. They were on-time and extremely professional. The music selection was perfect for a mixed age crowd and they did a great job of transitioning from cocktail hour to dinner and dancing. Definitely choose them for your event, I couldn't be happier!"

What is your favorite song to play while DJing?
What was the first album you ever owned?
I think it may have been the single for All My Life by K-Ci & JoJo. I’ve always been super romantic.
What is your favorite album of all time?
This is like asking a fat kid what’s his favorite flavor of cake. Too many to choose, fluctuates too often. Ask me in person and I’ll tell you some of my latest faves!
How does your performance reflect your unique personality and/or background?
I love being on stage and having a great time. I’ve studied what it takes to be both in front of the lights and behind them so I know how to make things look and feel fantastic while making sure everyone is entertained at the same time.
What has been your most memorable wedding experience so far?
My most memorable wedding experience was probably the reception at my own wedding. The DJ did a great job finding a way to get everyone on the dance floor; my mom, my wife, my brother, everyone. It was one of the best parts of the night… and that’s saying something
What song is cued up on your phone/iPod right now?
“Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon
Anything else you’d like to say?
Ever since I could drive my own car, my absolute favorite thing in the world is to roll the windows down, turn up the music, and dance. It’s the only way to live.
