"I spoke with many DJs before I chose Nate with Amplify entertainment for my wedding on New Years Eve. Everyone promised they could make our night memorable, but Nate stood out. His prices are very competitive for the market, and he takes running his company seriously. In fact, he runs his company the way all consumers hope any service based company will be run, but very very few are. Mostly we get people like electricians who give you a 9-1 window and shows up at 2 the next day. Nate couldn't be more of a shining star in his field. He is reliable, honest, kind, and responsive. He didn't oversell or make lofty claims that he couldn't keep--he explained his goals and operation truthfully and made assurances on value and quality that he stuck to. We chose one of his DJS for our event who had to drop out for personal reasons about a month before, and Nate handled it perfectly. He had a solution instantly (he had already secured another DJ for us when he told us our first had to step away), he was apologetic and took ownership of the issue but remained confident and reassuring that it would be fixed. As it turned out, we couldn't have been happier with the DJ he chose for us. We got married in Salt Lake City, with Ryan, and I can't tell you how many times I heard people scream "THIS DJ IS KILLING IT!" He was nice and easy to worth with and totally understood exactly what vibe we were setting. He took the job seriously, but he wasn't stiff or overly formal, and we just loved him. Plus, he nailed the ceremony and dinner playlist, kept the dance floor completely full, and played songs even I was yelling "ohmagod I haven't heard this song in 10 years!" ...before singing every word. We couldn't have been happier with Amplify, as a business or as a DJ."

"These guys are incredible! I originally chose Amplify because they were super responsive and flexible in terms of communication when I was shopping around for a wedding DJ. After I booked them, they made planning for the ceremony and reception very easy. Ryan was my wedding DJ in Salt Lake and he played the right music all night and kept people on the dance floor. Some of my guests told me they’ve never seen such a high percentage of people dancing at a wedding before. Our guests danced for hours and Ryan seemed like he was having as much fun as the rest of us! Definitely book Amplify if you are looking for a night to remember and a party your guests won’t soon forget."

"Amplify did a wonderful job! Our DJ, Ryan, did a great job doing our wedding. He made it easy for my brother, who sang during the ceremony, to set up smoothly. I had a BLAST dancing with all of my friends and family. There wasn't a dull moment. Even after we left, he stayed another couple of hours with my girlfriends while they danced the night away!"

"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."
Lauren + Alastair
"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!"
Rob + Heather

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.
