"Our wedding reception was outdoors at our family home, and the DJ was set up under some trees about 30 yards from the house, and they had no problem accommodating us! Ryan was our DJ, and he did an excellent job. We filled out Nate's form and then made some suggestions to Ryan about some music we liked; we even gave him music from local bands from overseas. Ryan was able to use our personal music & our suggestions to create exactly what we'd hoped for, and we got many compliments on the music selection. Our reception was somewhat unique in that we arrived via boat, and Ryan was able to coordinate music with our arrival. He also worked well with the cocktail band we had play for the first hour of our reception."

"My daughter’s wedding was March 11th. Ryan was our DJ for the entire event. From the ceremony to the cocktail hour and reception, Ryan did a stellar job in taking care of the music and entertainment. We had special requests for both the ceremony and dancing during the reception, and Ryan handled it perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for better. Nate runs a first class operation and I would recommend Ryan and Amplify Entertainment to everyone looking for the best in DJ’s, sound systems and overall entertainment. They simply can’t be beat! My other daughter is also engaged and will be married in January 2018. I will definitely be using Amplify Entertainment and requesting Ryan for this event."

"Amplify Entertainment was fantastic. We met with Nate who got to know us as a couple and took the time to learn our musical taste and preferences. Ryan was our DJ and he was so much fun. Hit our style perfectly! The mix of Lumineers with Rat Pack and then eventually the dance music was exactly what we wanted - an evening of fun with friends and family. Everyone had a blast!"

Clients Review Ryan
Ryan was born in Georgia, but has spent the majority of his life in Tallahassee. He has a big family — 48 first cousins and 30 aunts and uncles — so family is extremely important to him. He grew up with friends and family who are very musically inclined, and he also shares their affinity toward music. Although he has experimented with a few different instruments in his life, he mainly enjoys just groovin’ to the beat and sharing music with others. When he’s not DJing, you can find him in the library studying Finance for his undergraduate degree at Florida State.
