"Nate was INCREDIBLE every step of the way through the process of planning our wedding! Highly recommend him and his team. He did our DJing for the reception and we hired a violinist through his company! Best DJ in town hands down! Thank you for everything Nate!"
Emily + Jaron
"We had the best time with Amplify entertainment! It started with an interview to get to know the DJ and the company. They immediately took any stress off because they can cater to any request! We got paired with Dexter who was so much fun! I highly recommend Amplify Entertainment for your wedding!"
Dianna + Kadmiel
"Nate completely exceeded our expectations for our ceremony and reception and made our wedding more than perfect! His energy and passion for music shows in his work. We will always recommend Amplify Entertainment to anyone!"
Kelsea + Nick
"I have been to a lot of weddings with a lot of cringe-worthy DJ moments, but Nate was absolutely perfect for our day!!! The only guidance we gave him was "anything but country" and he RAN with it. From 3 years old to almost 90, everyone was on the dance floor and loving every second of it. It is so obvious that Nate just loves people, loves music, and LOVES his job. I cannot recommend Amplify enough!!!"
Elizabeth + J.R.
"Working with Amplify was amazing. They might be the only company that's mastered both the science and the art of doing the music for a wedding. On the front end, they walk you through every step of the process for how you want the reception to unfold, how you want the DJ to MC the event, etc. For the actual reception, they help you pinpoint the genres you'd like to hear and the one's you don't. Everyone had an amazing time and loved the playlist our DJ came up with. Knowing that every aspect of the music and audio was taken care of because the staff at Amplify walked us through every detail, and knew which questions to ask (questions we hadn't even thought of), all of that took a HUGE amount of stress off our plate on the wedding day. During every phase of the planning, and on the wedding day, everything by Amplify was handled with consummate professionalism. I would not book a DJ until you at least meet with the guys at Amplify and get a sense for their process and the value (and peace of mind) they can provide for your big day."
Lindsey + Andrew
"One of my best friends used Amplify Entertainment for her wedding and it was amazing! My brother then used Amplify a few months later and I was hooked and wanted to make sure to request Nate as our DJ. Nate engaged the guests in a way that made everyone feel comfortable and excited to dance. Nate was also extremely helpful in making sure events (introductions, cake cutting, first dances, etc.) transitioned well. It would highly recommend Amplify Entertainment!"
Katharine + Jake
"Nate and his team met our expectations. He obviously read the responses we provided in his questionnaire of our music likes and dislikes. He provided the jazz trio that we wanted for our ceremony and he worked with us to ensure that they played the perfect music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He took guests requests and did not play anything that would have been inappropriate for the occasion. The uplighting was great and created a party atmosphere. We highly recommend Amplify Entertainment - thanks Nate!"
Merisha + Gary
"Mason and Kait did great!!!! We couldn't have asked for better. Thanks so much!!"
Carson + Jeff
"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."
Callie + Gabriel
"Nate did an amazing job at our wedding! I’ve gotten so many compliments on how great the music was. He really learned about my husband and I style of music (one of us is more on the country side while the other is heavy metal!). We never had to give him a drawn out list of songs and he nailed it!!! I would definitely suggest him as a DJ!"
Sarah + Stephen
"Amplify is the only choice for your event’s entertainment! Nate, the owner, is so personable and makes sure that the rest of his crew is too. There are two meetings in order for your DJ to get to know you. With these two meetings and a packet for your event, your DJ will take care of the rest. The packet is very thorough to ensure that you include everything that you want your event to be. They have top of the line equipment and many different packages for everyone’s budget. Amplify took the timeline of our event and ran it themselves. They announced whenever something was coming up so that my husband and I could just enjoy our wedding. Music flowed seamlessly through the night even with different music genres for different times of the night. After our wedding, we received many compliments saying that our wedding was “the best wedding they had ever been to” and a large part of that was due to our entertainment. Other people thought that Nate was one of our great friends because of how well he clicked with us and how well he knew what music we wanted at our wedding. All in all, Amplify entertainment is the best choice for your event. You will be so glad that you did!!"
Taylor + Sean
"They made our wedding very special and were amazing to work with! I couldn't thank them enough for the job they did. They exceed every expectation and we're so very professional. If you're looking for an amazing DJ they are the ones hands down. Thanks again for making our day so amazing!!!"
Damond + Ryann
"Hi! Just wanted to send you a quick email telling you how much I enjoyed working with Jake tonight. He did such a fantastic job!! Amplify NEVER lets me down! Thank you so much!!!! Hope to work with you guys again soon!"
Kasey, Wedding Planner
"We had Michael from Amplify Entertainment DJ our wedding and he was SO great! From start to finish, Nate & Michael were super helpful with the entire planning process and were both very quick to respond to emails/texts. Michael did a great job of using the information we gave him in our meetings to guide his song selections & to get people out on the dance floor- I think all wedding guests would agree that his selections were on point! We highly recommend Michael from Amplify Entertainment!"
Kelsey + Danny
"Thank you so much for being the best DJ/MC ever! We loved every moment of our wedding and you had a huge part in that, from the ceremony, to cocktail hour, to the last song and group hug (which was one of our favorite moments of the weekend)! That was such a special ending to our wedding, we can't thank you enough. Our family members kept telling us how much they were enjoying the music throughout the night and our friends had a blast!"
Lauren + Trevor
"We had an amazing time with Dexter from Amplify Entertainment! He did a great job of accommodating our eclectic music taste and kept the dance floor going all night long! Nate was excellent to work with during the planning stages and helped design our awesome alternative monogram which they projected on the walls of the venue! Their services are affordable and I would highly recommend to any North Florida weddings!"
Sydney & David
"Dexter was the epitome of perfect! I could not have dreamed of a better DJ for our wedding! He fit right in like he was family and kept the party going all night! Thank you for helping to make my dreams come true."
Abbye + Logan
"Nate from Amplify Entertainment was the best DJ a bride could ever ask for. He had so many amazing song choices for us, special lighting for our venue, a personalized monogram for everyone to see. He made sure to include the audience during several songs that only made our wedding more special! Nate was also very personable to each of our guests and made sure that everyone was having a great time or wanted to hear a particular song. My husband and I were very fortunate to have found such an amazing company to provide us some unforgettable entertainment for our wedding!"
Danielle + Adam
"What can I say that has not already been said by so many other satisfied reviewers? You cannot go wrong with choosing Amplify Entertainment! Nate was a pleasure to work with from the start: responsive, professional, kind, and enthusiastic! He took the time to listen to the vision my husband and I had for our wedding and ensure to offer us the best package for our needs. We had timing changes we had to make partway through, due to changes our venue made, and he refunded us for the time we no longer needed. He helped recommend a DJ to us, and our first choice Lane was available. Lane was also a pleasure to work with! He was equally responsive, professional and enthusiastic. I was a pretty type A bride, and I ended up giving Lane a two page detailed list of music I wanted played during specific parts of the night, and although he requested that I give him just a few of my absolute must plays - he ended up playing pretty much all my songs anyway! For the rest of the time, he of course played other awesome music and everyone was out on the dance floor most of the entire night! It was the perfect night filled with fun and dancing just as I envisioned it!"
Alexis + John Paul
"We had Jake as our DJ and he was awesome. He worked with us on our timeline and gave suggestions when he had seen something that worked at other weddings. Would recommend to everyone."
Kathryn + Kyle
"Nate was SO amazing to work with during the planning process. He was professional, prompt with responding, and helpful in determining what options they offered that we wanted for our wedding. We hired Amplify Entertainment for the ceremony and cocktail guitarist, dance floor, and monogram lighting for the reception. For the guitarist we were able to list out specific details in a timeline that he called me a few weeks prior to review together! Nate allowed endless possibilities for color and font for our monogram lighting. Everything from Amplify Entertainment from start to the end was perfect and if we ever find ourselves back in Tallahassee for an event we would surely hire them again for more services!"
Janelle + Chris
"Great DJ service. Everyone had a blast with the entertainment that was provided. Dillon and his assistant were very professional, courteous, and friendly. Dillon was great and it was funny to see the constant evolution of his hairstyle throughout the night!"
Katie + Andrew
"Nate was really professional and easy to work with when we set up our contract, and Michael did an absolutely outstanding job as DJ! We got several comments about how nice the guitar sounded both before and during the ceremony, and how nicely the reception engaged all guests. Micheal obviously listened to our suggestions for the night, was very flexible on meetings and very responsive. We really appreciated his energy and how much he went above and beyond to make sure we were happy."
Holly + Adam
"From our first meeting back in October 2016 up until our wedding October 2017, Nate and Dillon(our DJ) have been amazing! Nate really eased my mind about having a DJ at the wedding, he assured me that Amplify was not a cheesy 90s DJ company and he was right! Our first meeting he talked with us for about an hour, getting to know us. Asking what type of music we like, didn't like, and our overall vision for the wedding. He gave us the option to pick our own DJ, but after meeting him we felt comfortable having him match us up with someone. Our DJ, Dillon, was great! He is so laid back but super fun. A couple days before the wedding, we were worried that Tropical Storm Nate (haha) would affect our outdoor wedding. We were able to last minute move our reception indoors at the Southwood Clubhouse but still have our ceremony outdoors. Nate/Dillon were super understanding and flexible about the whole thing. He set up two systems for us and made sure everything ran smoothly. Luckily it did not rain! He picked the energy back up when people went outside to smoke cigars and drew them back in, so it was never dead and there were people always dancing. We are so thankful that we chose Amplify, their price was fair especially for everything they provide. I recommend Amplify to any couple searching for a DJ or to anyone who needs one for an event. You will not be disappointed! Thank you so much Amplify!!!"
Briana + Alex
"You know you picked a good DJ when every one of the guests you talk to comment on how amazing your DJ is before they say anything about your dress ... "Your DJ is the best I've ever seen! Oh, and congrats, btw, on your wedding and stuff." :) I saw Nate DJing a bridal show, and knew we had to have him at our wedding. So much so, that we picked our wedding day based on when Nate was available. Nate is hands down the best DJ I've ever seen. His attention to detail is amazing; he takes the time to actually meet with you and have an in-depth conversation about your style and how music can complement your wedding day. Then he plans everything to a T, so you don't have to worry about anything or answer any last minute questions on the big day. He played just the right mixture of music and got all our guests out on the dance floor having a good time. From a rap battle to a candles-in-the-air Beatles tribute to an epic air guitar chorus, he had the crowd going all night. So much so, that they all wanted him to come to the after party. Nate was an all around cool guy, and made our reception one for the books."
Megan + Ryan
"Amplify Entertainment was such a great company to work with for our wedding. Nate and his team go above and beyond in making sure they get the perfect picture of what YOU want your day to feel like. We had the privilege of having Dexter DJ our wedding and he was perfect. We had so many compliments on him and how interactive he was with the guests. He knew how to get people up and dancing! We highly recommend this company."
Meagan + Adam
"Our DJ, Michael, from Amplify Entertainment was outstanding! As a musician myself, I was skeptical hiring someone outside of my friend group, but as soon as I met Nate, my mind was at ease. He and Michael both listened to my concerns and were super awesome to work with! Our guests still keep commenting on how wonderful the music was at the reception and we had such a blast dancing the night away. Thank you so much for making our big day truly fabulous!"
Diane + Daniel
"We chose Amplify for our wedding and man did we luck up! Nate is truly a professional in every sense of the word. We've learned that a good wedding DJ doesn't just push a lot of buttons and good songs come out. A good DJ is tuned into the frequency of the whole wedding. They help set the mood you want, carry the wedding forward, and herd your guests. Nate did all these things wonderfully and more. And he did an excellent job of reading the crowd. So many people told us to prepare for a small or no dance crowd, because guests probably won't like to dance outside when its still daylight and southern hot! Well, Nate tuned in and turned it up and the people came. Even my 8 months pregnant cousin was getting down! So, needless to say, choose Amplify for your next event, you won't regret it. How can a company where the CEO goes by "Chief Entertainment Officer" not be awesome?!"
Xu + Andrew
"Nate was amazing! So willing to answer any and all my questions with such a quick response time. He met with us prior to our big day and made sure everything was perfect! When the big day finally came, we couldn't have asked for anything more! He was totally awesome with his selection and adding in our special requests!! Would highly recommend Amplify Entertainment to anyone with a special event!!"
Lucy + Steven
"Dexter was AWESOME!! Everyone had a wonderful time, and he got everybody on the dance floor which I was THRILLED about for photos lol. I didn't think that would happen :) It was just perfect!!! The lighting and sound was amazing, and the volume was perfect! Thanks again, the service was too notch, classy, and the purple uplighting gave me chills when I walked in."
Paulette, Mother of the Bride
"I totally recommend Amplify Entertainment! My wife and I hired Amplify for our wedding and we have no regrets. Nate was our MC/DJ for the reception and he provided music for our ceremony. Our reception was a party! Our wedding was on Nate's birthday and he still decided to work on his birthday! I can go on and on...Amplify Entertainment is top notch!"
Derrick + Shatoya
"If you're looking for a DJ for any occasion in Tallahassee or North Florida, look no further! We had our initial meeting with Nate for our wedding ceremony and rehearsal and it was a match made in heaven! Nate is a professional and knows what he’s doing, so trust him when it comes to setting the vibes you’re looking for on the most memorable day of your life! I also have to say that his online website really helps you get to know the other DJ's with their bios. Also, from the deposit, payments, signatures for contracts, everything is an absolute breeze because you can do it all easily online! Totally recommend!"
Chelsea + Ross
"Nate was amazing throughout this entire experience! By far THE BEST vendor we used for my little sister's wedding! Everything she envisioned was included, and the flexibility of Nate was amazing! He truly is a scientist of DJing; knows how to read crowds and make sure all are having fun without any down time. Extremely professional, fun, entertaining, and passionate about his work. Don't miss out on the chance to work with him!!! You will not regret it!"
Becca (Sister of the Bride)
"If you are looking for the greatest musical experience for your next event, you need to call Amplify Entertainment! I had the pleasure of working with Nate and highly recommend him. I have never seen a DJ read the crowd so well! I think he knew our guests musical performances better than we predicted! The dance floor was constantly packed and that's entirely thanks to Nate! I have never felt more like a rock star, and my very shy husband never left the center of the dance floor!! Thank you Nate, you are honestly the best DJ and the reason my wedding was so memorable!"
Noelle + Christopher
"We had the best experience with Amplify Entertainment! Dave was our DJ for our wedding, and he made the entire night as special as we had always imagined. All the forms were very comprehensive, and we got the mood and genre of music we wanted without having to put extensive time into choosing all the songs - we gave Dave a list of what we liked and he created the perfect playlist. Our night was so much fun, thanks to Amplify! Would definitely hire them for another event!"
Kaity + Reece
"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed having Michael with Amplify Entertainment DJ our wedding day. He exceeded our every expectation and kept an energetic vibe the whole time. Amplify Entertainment does an outstanding job to figure out exactly how you want your event to go. I am so thankful that they provided us with packets to fill out because they covered every area imaginable. With planning a wedding, that was so helpful because we did not have to stress out about what we needed to provide the DJ. We also had the KidStation set up outside and the kids enjoyed it very much. It is an awesome item to have if you are going to have a lot of children at your event). Thank you Michael for everything! You were outstanding!!!"
Katie + Paxton
"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."
Carlos + Holly
"Nate and his team ROCKED the house!! I could not be more happier with Nate and Amplify Entertainment. Nate somehow bridged a generation gap of 20+ of age to 60+ of age and he did it all through music. He had everyone up and on the dance floor and engaged in what turned out to be an epic wedding!!"
Joy (Mother of the Bride)
"Jake from Amplify Entertainment was awesome!!! Thank you so much, we had a blast and I am so glad we chose you guys!!! You and Jake have been so awesome, I would recommend you guys to anyone!!!!"
Brianna + Wallace
"I can't thank Nate enough! He did an amazing job at our wedding! He stepped in when the other venders fell behind and made sure things went smooth! He kept the guest dancing and having a great time! Please do yourself a favor and hire Nate!"
Stephanie + Steve
"Nate was fabulous to work with! His entire model is personalized to YOU. Whatever you want, he will make happen. He has such an awareness and understanding in keeping the flow of the night go smooth. I fully support Nate and Amplify Entertainment as the best DJ and music entertainment in town."
Chris + Shea
"Nate Long and his company Amplify Entertainment exemplify all that is best in the contemporary DJ business. Highly professional, utterly reliable and great fun! The best of the best!"
Martin (attended four events we’ve DJed, including his wedding!)
"Fun DJ who played just what the bride and groom wanted and got all ages involved in dancing."
Meg, Mother of the Bride
"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 husband and I cannot say enough great things about Nate and the others at Amplify Entertainment! From start to finish they were helpful, positive and professional! We changed our minds on songs several times and Nate never complained and always responded promptly! He created a fun and upbeat environment at our wedding that our guests will always remember! The company also has their own musicians along with sound equipment! We reserved a violinist for the ceremony and a guitarist for the cocktail hour. Both were a huge hit! Our guests were constantly commenting on how great the musicians were and how engaged Nate was! He got people to the dance floor and kept the music going! He also did a great job coordinating tables to head to the buffet and announcing other events throughout the night! We cannot say enough good things about this company and how fun they made our special day! We are so happy we chose Amplify Entertainment for a big day!"
Karson + Luke
"Amplify Entertainment did an outstanding job at our daughter's wedding! This is an excellent company. Nate is a pleasure to work with, and has a great selection of DJ'so to choose from. Dillon was our DJ, and did a great job on the lighting and music selection. He is full of energy, and kept everyone dancing and having a good time! We have received so many compliments on the wedding, and what a great time everyone had!"
Robbie, Mother of the Bride
"Nate is the best! He made our idea of the perfect sing along, piano bar, dance party, reception into a reality. I had a meeting with Nate a couple of weeks before the wedding and I remember him asking if we were ok with him going with his gut, if he feels like the reception really needs a certain song to get the party going, which I thought was pretty funny at the time. Turns out that was a great decision! He got a good feel for what kind of music Matt and I like during that meeting and we ended up having a blast on the dance floor with all of our friends and family. I truly couldn't count how many people came up to me that night, to say how much fun they had at the wedding, or how many of our friends, that normally hug the bar, ended up out on the dance floor that night, and I know that had a ton to do with Nate! Thank you so much!"
Candace + Matthew
"Nate was so helpful from the beginning, even through us changing things up an moving our date months ahead! Dakota was our DJ and he was great! He was able to decipher what music we enjoyed listening to, my husband and I don't always like the same music so he did really well combining the two and went above and beyond our expectations. We recommend Nate and his team for any and all of your DJ needs!"
Amber + Chance
"We got Nate as our DJ!!! How lucky could we get?? Amplify Entertainment is most professional, there is a reason why they are number 1 in Tallahassee. The homework they gave us to complete for our wedding was so thorough it ensured that our wedding was perfectly attuned to us as a couple. Their services are worth every penny. Our guests loved all of of the music and Nate kept the party going for sure. They are incredibly thoughtful and precise in their work. I've never danced so hard before, it was the party of the millennia! Thank you for rocking the Mission on April Fools Day!!"
Franceska + Dan
"We chose Dexter with Amplify and had an absolutely fantastic experience. One of the best things about Amplify is that they have a pretty large number of excellent DJs with their bios and music tastes and personal style on their website so you can choose the person you think works best for your personality or the vibe you're looking for during your wedding. Upon our initial consultation, it seemed like Dexter would be the best fit for us and he did not disappoint! Even our photographer, who's done hundreds and hundreds of weddings, loved Dexter. The process is totally transparent (no mysterious charges or fees), they offer packages that fit a lot of different needs and there are a number of a la carte options to make it exactly what you want. Nate and his crew have thought of everything and covered all of the bases. Should I ever be throwing a party that needs a DJ or emcee, I'll definitely be returning to them."
Amanda + Cole
"Great staff and service! Nate is amazing and we loved Dakota as our DJ! Amplify puts a lot of thought and organization into their events. I would highly recommend Amplify Entertainment to anyone needing a DJ service."
Kelsey + Tal
"Finding the right DJ for your wedding can be SO hard! You have to find the right personality to fit your needs! Let me tell you, we couldn't have asked for a better DJ than Nate! I wanted someone who would make sure everyone had fun, even if that meant jumping on the dance floor with us! He did exactly that! The entire experience was 100% personalized! Nate created a playlist just for our wedding full of songs we had chosen and a few that he recommended based on our preferences. The entire night was customized to fit all of our needs, which was so much more than we could have ever hoped for! I had no idea a DJ could be so accommodating! When you work with Amplify Entertainment you will have so much fun planning an event that all of your guests will enjoy!"
Emily + John
"(Our DJ was Michael) Amplify Entertainment was well worth it! I read reviews before hiring anyone and Amplify did not disappoint! I highly recommend them if you want a company that is easy to work with, very professional and aim to please!"
Angela (Mother of the Bride)
"Nate was a pleasure to work with. Seemed genuinely excited to give me and my now wife the DJ experience of a lifetime. He was thorough with what we wanted and didn't want and had some excellent suggestions to make everything run smooth. Our DJ, Dexter, was outstanding to say the least. He was early to the event, extremely professional, flexible, and came prepared to our venue that had little internet service. During the reception he kept the energy going and danced with us too! He was so awesome we wanted him to come out after the reception! My guests were so impressed they wanted to book Dexter for future events. I can't say enough good things about Amplify Entertainment. It's a shame I can't give them 6 stars because I would in a heartbeat. Thanks to all of you for giving me an unforgettable wedding experience."
Sarah + William
"We used Nate with Amplify Entertainment for our ceremony and reception. He was professional, responsive, and most of all an amazing entertainer! We have had many wedding guests text us and tell us how much fun our reception was because the DJ was so awesome. He really knew how to feed off of the crowd and kept the energy up the entire night. We also loved that he really knew music, especially our small, no-name bands that we wanted to feature during the cocktail hour and reception. Nate really knows what he is doing, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ. We couldn't have asked for anyone better!"
Michelle + Bobby
"DJ (Michael) really listened to the bride and groom's advance requests. Was great getting everyone into one dancing, etc. Would definitely hire Amplify again!"
Meg (Mother of the Bride)
"We hired Amplify for a wedding in Salt Lake City in March, 2017, and our DJ was Dave. The company was prompt and responsive to calls, texts and email, the flow of the party was maintained, Dave reacted swiftly to changes on the fly, and they had no problem finding all the music on our playlist, even though we had a lot of obscure Indian songs. But most of all, he was able to read the crowd and switch up the music selection to keep the dancing going. Far better than expected for a perfect evening."
Alex + Sana
"Thank you so much for everything you did to make Julia and Jesse's wedding such a huge success last night. You were terrific! A bride whose wedding we did last year came up to me during the dance party and said, 'This DJ is SO GOOD!'. Your instincts are terrific, your enthusiasm contagious. We definitely hope to be working with you again soon!"
Jodi (Wedding Planner)
"Nate was a fantastic DJ and MC at our wedding. He knew how to read the crowd, playing just the right music at the right time. Everyone from small child to 90 year old great grandparents had a BLAST! He helped time everything perfectly so that all events transitioned smoothly and naturally. And the generations dance in lieu of bouquet/garter toss was a hit. We want Nate for every single one of our events. Such wonderful service and shining personality."
Veronica + Joe
"These guys were AMAZING and so much fun to work with!!! They were able to give us exactly what we wanted and everything could not have been more perfect! They are very detail-oriented and the quality of their service is outstanding. Everyone had a blast! We HIGHLY recommend Amplify!"
Rachel + Devon
"We hired Lane, with Amplify Entertainment to be the Sound Director for both our Wedding Ceremony and Reception. Any time that I had a question or concern, either Lane or Nate would promptly respond! My husband and I met with Lane the week of our wedding to go over final details, and was so pleased with how calm and accommodating Lane was! He planned to arrive the day of, with plenty of time to set up and ensure he was ready to start on time. All went as planned, and Lane played an awesome mixture of music that appealed to our guests and got them on the dance floor! We ended up extending the entertainment for an hour because it was just that good! Definitely recommend Amplify Entertainment - thank you Lane and Nate for helping us make our wedding unforgettable!"
Cate + Keith
"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."
Marty (Mother of the Bride)
"Amplify entertainment was amazing! Jake was an outstanding DJ! I remember when I walked into Jake's office and told him I wanted my reception to be a big party and he said "we will make it happen" , I was not disappointed at all!! The amount of thought and care they give to clients is amazing. We ordered the package that came with the "Story of Us" the video was well prepared and thought out and we were very pleased with everything amplify did for us! YOU GUYS ROCK!"
Tanisha + Jay
"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
"Nate was our DJ for our wedding in January and he was amazing! Seriously the life of the party, great at watching the crowd responses and picking the best music to keep it going! He even got out on the dance floor and dance and sung with the guests. Couldn't have asked for a better DJ!!"
Annie + Ben
"Nate runs an amazing company! We recently used them for our wedding out at Southwood and little went as planned due to weather. Nate and the others ensured that everything went smoothly, even with several changes made to our schedule the day of. Not only did they have to move all of their equipment inside because of the weather, he is so amazing at music choices and keeping people on the dance floor! All of our guests were so impressed with his kindness and skills, we cannot thank him enough for making our day so special! Thank you guys for braving the storm and taking all the changes of the day in stride! Having them DJ allowed my husband and I to not have to worry about every little detail because they had it covered!"
Skylar + Kevin
"I'm so grateful for Dakota at Amplify. He was beyond helpful to my fiancée and I. It was only a week or two before my wedding, and I only had one song picked out. Just one. It was awful. Luckily we had Dakota. Dakota was able to give my fiancée and I a lot of different song suggestions for every type of dance that we would be doing come wedding day. Dakota stayed in touch with us up until the day before the wedding to make sure we had everything picked out and finalized. On the day of the wedding everything went perfectly. Dakota did a fantastic job with all of the music! Everything we had picked out (even all of the last minute songs) was played. He even recommended a good dancing spot outside on the back porch of our venue that moved all of our dancing guest outside into the nice weather. He was very sweet, professional, fun, and easy going. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a good wedding DJ!! Thank you so much for everything Dakota!"
Brittany + Sam
"Amplify Entertainment was AMAZING!! Dakota played exactly what we wanted while keeping the party going. My wedding was a week ago and I'm still hearing from guests how great the music was. Fantastic company; the process was super easy and they were great to work with. I would highly recommend this company!!!"
Emily + Matt
"After having a DJ back out of our wedding 3 weeks prior I called and spoke with Nate and he was more than eager to help anyway he could. He was very quick to respond to emails or phone calls. Lane was the DJ at our wedding and he did an amazing job. He stepped in and helped more than he was supposed to. Thanks guys for making our day so great!"
Jessica + Jason
"Most people fear their wedding day won't measure up to everyone's expectations and I know I feared it wouldn't be fun for my guests because we weren't serving alcohol and I was a nervous wreck. But the DJ Dillon was so awesome! He not only kept everyone involved and dancing, he took requests and was so interactive, I was quite impressed with how well our special day turned out to be the most amazing and fun experience for not only us but all of our guests as well!! They were very professional and adapted everything to meet our needs and beyond! I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for highly talented DJ's for entertainment at any event, especially weddings where kids are present! It was enjoyable for all ages and I couldn't have imagined a better turn out! Any future event in need of a DJ or any outstanding entertainment services I know who to call!"
Summer + Colton
"Amplify did the DJ & MC'ing for our December wedding. I cannot express enough how wonderful the whole experience was, from beginning to end. The forms we filled out helped Nate make sure that everything went smoothly and helped us nail down our overall timeline. We had two meetings to go over our selections and allow us to talk over what we wanted. Wedding planning can be very stressful. Nate was one of the few vendors who made me feel like my opinions and vision was feasible and interesting. Our guests had a wonderful experience; they talked about how much fun they had and how well the event flowed. I am extremely glad to have chosen them to do our wedding. Thank you, Nate & co!"
Paulina + Jon
"Nate with Amplify Entertainment was the PERFECT DJ for our wedding!! He was easy to work with and had a ton of awesome suggestions! He uses a questionnaire to make sure each part of the day is perfect. Best decision we made!! I told him the vibe we wanted for the night and he delivered! Our guests danced all night!"
Sarah + Daniel
"You seriously CANNOT go wrong with Amplify! Nate is great at getting the process started and they make it so easy with how organized it is. They have a really awesome PDF file that is so detailed and really helps with planning not only for them but for you also! Dakota was our DJ and he was AWESOME!! He literally did everything we asked and read our crowd perfectly. He knew exactly what to play to keep people on the dance floor and our party was 8 hours long!!! 😳 That was a hard task but he made it happen and there wasn't a minute the dance floor was empty. Also, all their equipment, lighting, monogram feature were top notch and all looked and sounded great! Use Amplify, I promise they won't disappoint!!"
Morgan + Ryan
"We found Nate through a couple we are friends with, who used Amplify for their own wedding. After meeting with him, we didn't have to keep looking--we knew he was the best out there! He is so great at putting you at ease, answering any questions you might have, and being fun and friendly throughout. His experience and know-how of the wedding industry is palpable and came in handy several times throughout planning (helped us find other vendors, etc.). As for how he was at our wedding--WOW! I have never been a dancer at parties/weddings, but Nate had EVERYONE on the floor all night--from my 1 year old nephew to my 80 year old grandparents. He was so talented at feeling the vibe of the crowd and seemed like he could sense what we all wanted to hear next. He made sure to play every song I had requested, tactfully turned down song requests on our 'do not play' list, and ensured everyone had a blast. He kept us on schedule without us even realizing it because we were so busy having a great time. He really intuitively understood what needed to happen and was great at managing the flow of the night perfectly. By the end of the night, he seemed more like our friend than our DJ. We got married about 2 weeks ago and we are still getting rave reviews about our awesome DJ. "Where did you find him?!" "He was the best!!!" So many people said that they usually hate DJ'd weddings because they can be so tacky and cheesy--that was never a concern with Nate. And I LOVE Amplify's organized, modern system for planning--the packets, online payments, ease with which you can contact your DJ--all so simply and streamlined. If I have any other functions I need a DJ for, I would absolutely use Amplify again. I'm almost sad you don't often need a DJ because we would love to work together again. Thank you Nate!!!"
Nora + Patrick
"Nate and Amplify came highly recommended by many of my friends. After meeting Nate and going over the basics, it was clear why many of my friends had already used them at their weddings. Nate has everything figured out, but still allows you to customize everything to make the day go exactly as you imagined! The planning process was so easy and he was so accommodating, even FaceTiming with us for our last meeting because we had moved out of state. I was so confident in Nate's ability to make our day special, even more so when he was willing to hear and execute my husband's specific idea about our entrance. Nate helped us throw a great party that people are still talking about."
Julie + Kevin
"Our wedding was an absolute blast thanks to Nate! My husband (Nate) and I cannot thank Nate enough for an absolutely, perfectly, wonderful, magical evening! I HIGHLY recommend Nate Long and the Amplify Entertainment team! I was a long distance bride so I did all of my planning remotely. From our first conversation I had no doubt that I made the right choice for our wedding. We had a holiday themed wedding with a holiday themed playlist and Nate nailed EVERY moment, every detail! Our wedding guests were so impressed, they wanted copies of the playlist! That is just how talented and devoted Nate is to making your day memorable for you and your guests. We got everything we could have wanted and more when we chose Amplify Entertainment for our wedding. An advocate, planner, coordinator and master of fun! We could not have pulled this off without Nate's magic and cannot thank him enough from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you!!!"
Amelia + Nate
"Look no further!! Nate is the best! Super organized and professional! He made picking out music so easy! Actually he made the planning part of the wedding easy! Very enthusiastic and personable! So much fun to work with! Got the crowd going and even when there were only a few left on the dance floor kept playing music and even joined in for a few! You won't have to worry about music or the MC when you hire Amplify! If I ever have another party I will definitely hire them again!!"
Veronica + Jeff
"Nate and Dexter walked us thru the whole thing, which really helped since we weren't well versed on how things should go. Dexter did a great job with the music and even got on the dance floor to help fire things up! Amplify Entertainment was a great find."
Kim + Julian
"These guys made the difference in our DIY wedding being successful. They were so professional, so knowledgable, so experienced, they literally saved the day. So many little steps we would have missed, or didn't know how to do properly, things we didn't think of, all taken care of by Nate and Lane (our DJ). They are professional and experienced and asked just the right questions, and had the documentation to put our minds at ease and trust them with everything. They even made sure to find a DJ who was bilingual so our Spanish-speaking families were not left out. We can't recommend them enough!"
Alfonso + Annarely
"I cannot put into words how much FUN our wedding was, and it was all thanks to Amplify! After my first meeting with Nate, I knew everything was going to run smoothly and I felt like he genuinely cared about making sure we got exactly what we wanted. Our final meeting with Jake felt like we were just hanging out with a friend - we would give him one example of a song or genre we liked and he would rattle off three or four perfect additions - my husband and I even commented several times throughout the night that it felt like Jake had taken both of our iPods and perfectly blended them together. Every single song was perfect for whatever the moment was (from cocktail hour to dinner to dancing!). So many of our guests have told us that they didn't plan to stay through the whole reception but that they were having so much fun they didn't want to leave, and I cannot thank Jake enough for that! Thank you to Jake, Nate, and Amplify for making our day amazing, we could not have imagined anything better."
Victoria + Ryan
"Where do we even begin? Kiel and I cannot thank Nate from Amplify Entertainment enough for the absolutely incredible job he did DJ'ing our wedding. We are still reliving every moment and coming down off the high of the reception haha...everyone had an absolute blast and we really credit that to Nate bringing the jams and creating a SUPER fun, lively and energetic environment. It's everything we wanted and more! Nate was wonderful to work with, flexible, accommodating, respectful, and professional. He made our day so memorable- the songs he played were PERFECT, I've never seen my dad get out on a dance floor in my LIFE! Haha...Thanks again to Nate from Amplify Entertainment, my husband and I both recommend him highly!! Worth every penny!!"
Carrie Anne + Kiel
"Thank you SO much for a FANTASTIC wedding!!!!!! It has to have been the best reception in the whole world!!!!!! Everyone raved about what a great time they had! I appreciate all your enthusiasm and interaction. I know you and and Kiel bonded over the music and we were soooo glad to have you be the DJ for us. I can't thank you enough for a wonderful evening!"
Janet, Mother of the Bride
"I have nothing but positive comments for this DJ service. Our initial meeting with Nate was very helpful and he is truly a professional. One of my biggest concerns was that I am from Ecuador, therefore, hispanic music was one of our must haves, and there are so many different genres to chose from... Nate recommended Jake to be the DJ for our wedding, since he is both fluent in Spanish and knows the culture as well! My husband and I have very different musical taste, and our guests ranged in age and nationalities, but from the moment the music started, Jake just kept the party going! I would definitely recommend Amplify Entertainment!"
Giselle + Anthony
"Great wedding DJ! They made our day so fun and personal even though we had a bunch of weird music requests they made sure they had all the music and played flawlessly!"
Nicole + CJ
"Amplify Entertainment was fantastic and I cannot recommend them enough! They did a wonderful job of getting the music we wanted and our DJ Ryan kept the party going for our guests. They were the best!"
Jenny + Mikey
"I have nothing but positive comments for this DJ service. Nate responded to my initial email so quickly! My initial meeting with Nate was extremely informative and I left with zero questions. Once I selected Dakota as my DJ for the event, communicating with him was extremely easy! Dakota was the best DJ I've ever experienced, and he captured the feel I wanted for our wedding. Nate and Dakota were extremely flexible if I had any changes or updates to music we wanted. Also, they were very professional and I could tell that they know how a wedding is supposed to go! My husband and I have a very broad range of music we like, and Dakota made it all flow very well. If I ever need a DJ service for anything else, I will be going with Amplify Entertainment!"
Hannah + Josh
"Awesome job Dillon!! He and his assistant (Drew) were super sweet and gave us exactly what we wanted for ceremony and reception. It was a beach ceremony and it was raining the entire time, they remained patient and willing to play for us no matter what. Music was a blast at the reception and we are very pleased, thank you so so much! Extremely well run business."
Brittani + Austin
"Wedding planning is hard, especially if you don't enjoy planning. Fortunately, Amplify makes the music element SUPER EASY for you once you get to that part. They are extremely thorough with the planning process from their packages and add-ons to the ceremony and reception planners. Communication and payment are also a breeze (really loved that I could make multiple payments online). We worked with Lane and he did an awesome job orchestrating our wedding and playing our must have songs AND keeping the crowd going. Would choose them again in a heartbeat for our wedding!"
Asia + Matthew
"Nate from Amplify Entertainment is amazing! He answered all of my questions with a professional manner, and helped me decide which package was right for me and my fiancé! He also responded back to me with in 5 minutes of my initial contact, I cannot wait to work with these guys!!!"
"My maid of honor was doing the task of DJ research and reached out to many of the areas DJs. Nate's response was immediate and the most professional. He was very kind via email and I knew just through emails we were going to choose Amplify. Dakota was our DJ. He was kind and soft spoken and at our first meeting was very respectful of my lack of preparedness. The day of was a blur- but Dakota was calm and was open to our changing schedule. By the end of the night, Dakota was like one of our bridal party members. He treated us like family-not like someone paying him. He kept the party going and his experience showed as he suggested we so our send off again so our photographer could truly capture the moment. He was awesome with our other vendors. Our musicians traveled from out of state and Dakota was awesome working with them through their songs and perfecting it. Our photographer was also from out of state and Dakota worked very well with our photographer! Hands down, AMPLIFY!!"
Heather + Marc
"Nate with Amplify Entertainment was fabulous! Very professional and accommodated our daughter's wishes for music and style of entertainment at the wedding reception. He was timely, very organized, was very familiar with the venue and had back up plans in case we had to go to plan B. Can't say enough good things about Nate."
Robin (Mother of the Bride)
"Awesome job Dillon!! He and his assistant were super sweet and gave us exactly what we wanted for ceremony and reception. It was a beach ceremony and it was raining the entire time, they remained so patient and willing to play for us no matter what. Music was a blast at the reception and we are very pleased, thank you so so much!"
Brittani + Austin
"As we were wedding planning, literally everyone we talked to highly recommended Amplify Entertainment, and after working with them I completely understand why! Nate was fantastic to work with, and he gave us some great resources that really helped us to figure out a wedding timeline and the songs we wanted to have for the special dances. Dakota was our DJ, and he was truly amazing. He was so helpful in our wedding planning meeting, and he was so patient with us when we were being really indecisive! He had so many great ideas. The day of the wedding he made everything go so smoothly. He was so responsive to our requests and he played great music all night long. The up lighting was beautiful and really transformed the room. I could not recommend Dakota, Nate, and Amplify enough!"
Martha + Allen
"Nate from Amplify Entertainment exceeded our expectations and made our wedding more fun than we could possibly imagine!! He was interactive and by being so awesome, it ensured everyone was out on the dance floor! Would recommend him to any of my friends getting married."
Christine + Nick
"The first thing you should do when you start to plan your wedding is to book Nate with Amplify Entertainment. He made our day amazing from the up lighting at the wedding ceremony, the slide show of pictures and the great music he played at the reception. He really kept the beat going all night. All our guest had a great night and still talk about the great DJ and the music he played. He kept people on the dance floor and helped make our special night memorable. He went above and beyond to make our night. We are forever grateful to him."
Jaimie + Sam
"Amazing! I'm so glad we picked Amplify Entertainment for our wedding! They were amazing! Nate kept the party going all night. I 100% recommend them to anyone who's looking for a DJ. He played the right song at every moment. We had so many compliments on the music. It was great!"
Christina + Paul
"Amplify Entertainment was a perfect ten every step of the way, from planning and brainstorming to the 'big day.' My husband and I appreciated how professional and organized they were and how they focused on personalizing the music and other services for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone."
Erica + Moein
"What can I say?? Amplify Entertainment was one of the biggest highlights from our wedding!!!! From the planning to the actual event, everything was what we expected and so much more. Nate is such a professional and put my mind at ease when discussing details and telling us about their company and their process. Thank you for that! We had Jake as our DJ for our wedding and he was absolutely perfect in every way. Very hands on and helpful with everything. I can't begin to express how happy we were with our Amplify experience!!!!!!"
Lauren + J.J.
"Nate is absolutely amazing! He was so interactive and full of energy, even though he hurt his foot the day of. We really appreciate the excitement he brought to our wedding! When using Amplify, you have to use all of their amazing equipment. The up lighting was perfect and set the mood for a great night! We can't thank him enough!"
Katie + Evan
"Nate was the DJ for our wedding, and we found him to be professional, friendly, and easy to work with. He played a really fun selection of music for the dancing at our wedding reception, and the uplighting and monogram of our initials projected onto the wall during the dinner hour added an extra special touch to the reception room during the dinner hour. My husband and I would highly recommend him to anyone!"
Tabby + Timothy
"We truly cannot say enough good things about Nate Long at Amplify Entertainment! Our reception was so wonderful and so so meaningful. There wasn't a moment when our guests were bored with dancing, the music or the flow of the evening! Thank you, Nate for making our wedding so memorable!"
Ashley + Greg
"Nate!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our man!! Wow....what can we say?!?!?! You and your team came through so hard for our wedding! From the ceremony music (AHHHH-mazing!) to the reception music....you absolutely listened to our desires and added your own funk and it absolutely blew up the place! We were so blessed to have you as our DJ and you are beyond comparable to any other DJ. Thank you so much for being patient with us and for being accommodating to Rodney's creativity. Your passion for this business shows and if I could sum you up in one word - it would be...impossible to do. :) Much love and blessings for you and your team and your family!"
Jasmine + Rodney
"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!"
Desiree + Stewy
"Where do I even begin? Nate, with Amplify Entertainment, absolutely made our wedding night! We have heard so many of our guests raving about our DJ. I would definitely recommend Nate and his team to make your wedding ceremony and reception a day to remember."
Ashley & Greg
"Amazing!!!! I was in a completely different state than where I was holding my wedding and Amplify Entertainment made things so simple and smooth sailing through all of the planning! Nate was great to work with and quick to answer any questions or concerns I had. As for the wedding itself it was everything I could've asked for plus some. Jake was our DJ and let's just say that he did not disappoint. Even when our feet hurt from dancing so much we kept on! All of my guests have been asking who the DJ was and of course I referred them because of how amazing they did! They had the schedule of what we wanted and kept everyone having a blast while incorporating the traditional wedding events. I am so grateful we chose Amplify Entertainment! They will not disappoint!!! Thank you guys for an amazing wedding and one we will never forget :)"
Randa + Dustin

Thank you to Jake, Nate, and Amplify for making our day amazing, we could not have imagined anything better."
Victoria + Ryan
"We booked Nate as our DJ for our wedding this past May because every single vendor we inquired about or worked with recommended him and raved about him. I will just say that they were all RIGHT! Prior to the wedding, he answered the numerous questions we had quickly. He sent us numerous documents via email that helped us plan out our timeline and choose numerous wedding songs, apart from the first dance, that you don't even think about. He met with us in person also to get to know us, so he could make additional suggestions and ensure that we would be getting exactly what we wanted. At the wedding, he helped make everything run smoothly by doing extra little things, such as calling table numbers for guests to go to the buffet to eat. More importantly, he read the vibe of the crowd and made sure that ALL of our guests of all ages were happy, having a great time, and dancing! We received so many compliments from our guests on how great our DJ was and are definitely happy that we made the right decision by choosing Nate!"
Shannon + Phil
"We loved working with Nate and Dakota. They were extremely knowledgeable about music and weddings in general. Dakota did an excellent job DJing on the day of. Our reception was so much fun! Amplify Entertainment came highly recommended from every vendor we worked with, and we're so glad we had them DJ at our wedding!"
Jessica + Tyler
"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!"
Aiden + Andrea
"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."
Denna (Mother of the Bride)
"We loved our experience with Amplify! When I was searching for a DJ, I knew right away after checking out the Amplify website that I wanted to hire them. And I got even more excited after meeting with Nate and telling him our vision for our reception, styles of music we liked, etc. They really invested time in making sure our reception reflected our personalities. Not just the dancing music - but the cocktail hour, toasts, announcements, everything. They were willing to play all of our weird indie music requests, didn't play cheesy songs, and didn't do anything ridiculous or embarrassing during our reception (I have seen some weird DJs...) Dillon was such a fun DJ - we only met with him once before the wedding, and communicated briefly the week-of... but when we showed up to the reception it was like seeing an old friend! He was super fun & very flexible. He patiently worked with us and the delays/time changes of the day. He was great at keeping everyone entertained and the reception rolling - all while making sure everyone was relaxed and having a great time. I honestly had no worries during my wedding reception and wish I could have slowed it all down to enjoy it more! Random highlight: Dillon found an acoustic version of the song we played to walk into our reception, and played it during our cake-cutting. My husband and I both got excited hearing it again, and we even had guests comment on how beautiful it was. It was the little things like that gem that made it so special! :) I highly recommend Amplify - great time for the guests AND the couple! Not your average DJs, and very professional and experienced. Thanks Dillon, Nate & Amplify!"
Tracy + Charlie
"We had an amazing experience with Amplify Entertainment! We first met with Nate who is great about answering questions and keeping everything organized. Lane was our DJ, and I cannot say enough good things about him! At our meeting he was very receptive to our wants, and also gave some great suggestions. At the wedding he kept everything running so smoothly that my husband and I didn't have to worry about anything we got to have fun and enjoy our day. He was engaging with all our guests, and kept the party going all night! I am so grateful to Lane and Amplify for making my wedding day so memorable!"
Sydney + Bradley
"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."
Kim + Sam
"Amplify Entertainment was more than we could have asked for from a DJ service. Nate was the absolute best from the very beginning and all the way through the end. We knew right after our initial meeting we were going to book Amplify Entertainment and that it didn't matter which DJ we ended up with because they were all clearly trained to be the best. They are able to provide their own recommendations based on their expertise but are also completely open to whatever you want to do. You can have them pick out your entire playlist, or you can pick out your entire playlist yourself - it's completely up to you. Our DJ was Dakota and he was fantastic! He listened to all of our requests and got on the mic and dance floor with us! In fact, Dakota played beyond past the time that was stated in our contract. We didn't realize how late it was at the time... the party was going that good and Dakota didn't want it to end either, so he just kept it going! Highly recommend this company and Dakota!"
Lindsey + Todd
"Amplify Entertainment and Nate Long were awesome from the day we contacted them. Nate answered all of our questions thoroughly and was very organized in his preparation to DJ our wedding. Providing entertainment for a half Persian wedding came natural to Nate. He has a great grasp of music from all genres and was able to keep the dance floor rocking all night with both Persian and American music. Nate was enthusiastic and compassionate throughout the process. He truly cares about the quality of his work and wants to provide the guests with the best experience possible. Amplify did more than just play music at our wedding. They took the time to understand our desires for the celebration and made sure everything flowed smoothly throughout the evening. Thank you for an amazing experience."
Omid + Sarah
"Music was a major player in our wedding, being that my husband is a drummer and this was the easiest part of the wedding! Nate was the most helpful and easiest to schedule with. I would definitely recommend him for anyone's wedding. He was very professional and provided lots of options to make our wedding unique to us!"
"If you don't have Amplify Entertainment as your DJ for you wedding or any event you are having you are missing out!! I am so taken back and impressed with this group. Not only are they super professional and nice, but they are so organized! And not to mention they are VERY affordable. Our DJ was so detailed. He gave us a package where we can write specifically what songs we wanted ahead of time. He also scheduled a 1 on 1 meeting with my husband and I prior to the wedding to make sure everything went smoothly. They were flexible on the payment methods and our DJ even asked how he should dress to our wedding! I could go on and on but the truth of the matter is that we received so many compliments on our DJ from our guests. Everyone was dancing the whole time it was incredible :) Thank you so much Amplify for being one of the least stressful vendors for our wedding and delivering the best party ever!!"
Carolina + Ryan
"Amplify Entertainment was the best addition to our wedding. They catered to all our requests including my request to have the father/daughter dance fade out of the sweet, sentimental song, and fade into another a more lively song to get people out of their seats and on the dance floor! Dakota did an awesome job! They were very professional and did a great job going with the flow--Our wedding party was a few minutes behind, but Dakota went with it and continued playing the genre of music so the guests could continue to get seated and the wedding party arrive. Awesome DJs and I'd recommend them to anyone!"
Janeann + Jacob
"Fantastic music selection for our wedding reception!"
Courtney + Brandon
"Many thanks for helping to make our engagement party/surprise wedding a success! Everything went flawlessly and Dillon was awesome. I won't hesitate to recommend Amplify in the future. Thank you!"
Will + Sarah
"Amplify Entertainment was incredible to work with from Day 1! Nate responded quickly and thoroughly to any questions that I had (and this teacher/type A personality gal sure had a lot), no matter how small! Both he and Jake, his brother/our DJ for the wedding, were very down to earth, but also very professional. Jake walked us through the timeline of events from start to finish and worked with us on song choices and flow of the ceremony and reception. Thank goodness for Jake!!! He had some wonderful ideas that we didn't even think of! I cannot rave enough about Jake and how amazing of a DJ he was!!! WOW! He played amazing music, got the guests up and ready to hit the dance floor, and he even wore suspenders just for us! I would absolutely recommend Amplify for ANY event that needs a fantastic DJ! You really made our wedding ROCK!"
Jessica + Chaz
"Nate from Amplify Entertainment came highly recommended from friends, family, and acquaintances. I knew virtually nothing about wedding planning and was ignorant to how expensive everything was and I was determined to get the best bang for my buck. I reached out to Nate just a few months before my big day with the understanding that he was probably booked due to popularity. To my surprise Nate was very prompt in getting back with me and had had a recent cancellation. I talked with other vendors who offered much less but for the same price if not more! After emailing with Nate a few times I knew I could trust him for the job and I that we would get the best quality. I met with him a few weeks prior to the wedding and he guided me through the entire music selection process with patience and professionalism. I am so thankful for him and his expertise because boy does he provide a lot of options! If you are looking for a DJ I could not recommend anyone other than Nate at Amplify Entertainment. Our friends and family had a blast at our wedding and talked about the music and dancing for weeks after! Thank you Nate for helping us create the perfect day!"
Kaitlynn + Daniel
"Amplify was great from start to finish. My guests were even telling me how great our DJ was. What a party. Wouldn't have been so awesome without Nate!!"
Danny + Tricia
"NATE WAS AMAZING!!!! My husband and I couldn't have pick a better person to DJ our wedding. Everything from the music, lighting and keeping the crowd going was awesome!!! Nate was great to work with and he accommodated a lot for my husband and I since we live in Panama City and had to drive over for late meetings. He did an epic bridal introduction for my wedding party and was able to keep a huge secret from my husband and I that my husband's mother had arranged a private wedding message from Gene Deckerhoff introducing us. If you need an excellent DJ pick Amplify Entertainment!"
Amy + Jason
"I met Nate at a bridal event in Tallahassee and was sold on booking Amplify within a few minutes of speaking with him! Throughout the whole process Nate was incredibly responsive, easy to get along with, and made the whole booking process a breeze! As for the day of, we could not asked for a better DJ! He and his assistant were wonderful!! The dance floor was going all night -- it was impressive how he was able to get so many of the guests out there dancing! We had several people comment on what an awesome DJ he was, and we would recommend him very highly to anyone in need of a DJ in the Tallahassee area!"
Natalie + Brian
"My wife and I hired Amplify for our recent wedding and we were very happy with how they handled everything. During the planning stage, Nate was very easy to work with and helped us figure out which package would be right for us and then customize the experience within that package. Dakota was our DJ for the actual wedding and he was very professional and helped make things go smoothly, and everyone seemed to enjoy his music selection. We highly recommend Amplify to anyone in need of quality DJ services for an event."
Krista + David
"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."
Anna + Terrence
"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!"
Lauren + Jimmy
"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!"
Emily & Austin
"DJ Jake was AMAZING!!!!! This wedding was so awesome and so was Jake! When I need a DJ I can promise this company will be my first choice and the DJ has to be as amazing as Jake!"
Angel (Wedding Guest)
"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!"
"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!!"
Heather + Kevin
"These folks are amazing!!! Truly the best choice for a DJ in Tallahassee- hands down. From our initial meeting with Nate to the end of our wedding night with Cameron as our DJ, we felt 100% taken care of. The planning and preparation they put in made us feel at ease when we were stressed about everything else. To set the atmosphere of an entire wedding reception is quite the task, but Cameron nailed it. We had a song list that he respected while also throwing in his own choices. And our guests had a blast! Thank you Amplify Entertainment for being so awesome! We would recommend them to everyone!"
Amanda + Bryce
"We had Amplify Entertainment DJ our wedding and they were AWESOME! The whole process from start to finish was great. Nate helped create a package that best reflected our needs for the event and walked us through everything they would be able to do leading up to the wedding as well as during. Our DJ Lane was an excellent host and helped keep the flow of the evening moving smoothly and was able to make adjustments as the evening progressed. The music selection was great and everyone at the wedding had a great time. Amplify goes above and beyond and does more then just DJ your wedding, they help ensure your day runs as smoothly as possible. I would HIGHLY recommend using Amplify Entertainment, they are FAR better then just creating a playlist or having a friend DJ. Thank you again Amplify and Lane for adding your professional and personals touches to our wedding day - it made it all the more special. Sincerely, Nate & Jillian"
Jillian + Nate
"Great Crew! I had an awesome wedding. Dakota really catered to what we wanted. He wasn't constantly trying to keep us on schedule (You'd be surprised how bossy some DJ's can be). We were 30 minutes late to our reception because of pictures, but some how we got everything done that we wanted to, and the timing seemed to flow really well. He even made sure the bride and groom ate something! He had all the music we wanted, even the indie stuff. I couldn't have picked a better DJ!"
Kelly + Brad
"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!"
Melissa + Phillip
"If you ask my husband and I about our wedding day, we both agree it was the best day of our lives - we had so much fun and Nate was a big part in helping have a blast! My husband was skeptical at first about having a DJ. He plays guitar and was in a band so he wanted live music. The FSU Alumni Center recommended Amplify Entertainment, so I set up the meeting. We spoke to Nate for almost 2 hours about music, what we liked, the style of our wedding - and my husband was sold! We were also very lucky to have Nate as our DJ and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The ceremony was lovely, introductions and first dances went off without a hitch, and when it came time to get the party started, he got everyone on the dance floor! From the moment we came back from taking our couple pictures to our sendoff we did not leave the dance floor. It was truly the most epic night of our lives, if you want your guests to have the best night with you, pick Amplify Entertainment!!"
Natalia + Josh
"Nate! Thank you so much for providing such great entertainment for our wedding! Everyone gave such high praise for a fun time! You really are great at what you do. If you need a DJ...Amplify Entertainment is who you need to contact!"
Leigh + Ryan
"If I had to choose one word to describe the way that Nate with Amplify Entertainment enhanced our wedding, I can't... because I'm truly speechless. WOW! What an incredible night. Let me start with the process of booking him: He was incredible. My fiancé and I went into his office and immediately felt as if we had made a new friend. He truly cares about your wedding and takes personal notes (that I promise you he uses later on because one of the best moments in our wedding was based off of one of the notes he took from our meeting). Nate engaged with us and truly got to know the things we loved and the style that we wanted to portray. Originally, I wanted to hire a string quartet as well as a DJ because my then fiancé and I were having an elegant ceremony. But once we heard his selection of music, we decided to have Nate be a part in our ceremony as well. Nate was not seen, but only heard during our ceremony in which the music truly flowed so beautifully that our preacher officiating our ceremony was even brought to tears. The cocktail hour music was not only elegant but also enjoyable and a beautiful prelude to our reception. During the dinner, Nate hit the nail on the head. He stayed present the entire time and continuously evaluated everyone's mood, as not to miss when everyone was starting to get the party started! He went through and directed the way in which we were supposed to either go or lead our attention to and everything was able to run very smoothly. Once everyone began to dance, he continued to not only be completely engaged in our crowd but he truly ensured that everyone had an amazing time. An overwhelming amount of people approached us and complimented how incredible our DJ was. I truly could not have asked for a better DJ to complete our night. Thank you so much Nate and Amplify Entertainment for making our wedding perfect!"
Cassie + Russell
"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!!!"
Ashlee + Louis
"Nate is amazing!!! All year long, during our engagement, when people found out we had Nate DJ'ing our wedding, we were told he was the BEST!! They couldn't have been more right! It's been about three weeks since the wedding and I still have guests telling me how fun the reception was and how our music was spot on!! Nate had the best energy and was able to pull every single guest out of their seat and on to the dance floor! I can't recommend him enough!!!"
Brittney + Chris
"Based on the expertise of our wedding planner, we worked with Amplify Entertainment for our wedding. My (now) husband and I are very into music, so we had a lot of ideas. Nate and Lane (our DJ) were very accommodating to our ideas, but also helped up plan a party that all of our guests would enjoy. Lane nailed the vibe we were going for at our ceremony, he made our first kiss a very special moment, I'll never forget it. Based on some of our favorite artists, Lane came up with an amazing play list that we loved, along with everyone at our wedding. Hotline Bling was a highlight, Lane's got moves. Beyond the music, which is obviously a crucial element, Lane emceed the reception. He's got a great personality and made the event seamless. Professionally, Amplify Entertainment were completely on point. We met several times before our wedding day and they painstakingly tried every Pantone setting on their UP lighting to create the perfect color. The day of the wedding I never saw them, I showed up to the ceremony and everything was set up. I walked into the reception and the UP lighting was beautiful, the dance lighting was set up, Lane was announcing us - the whole thing was seamless. Basically, they were perfect. Well priced, nice people who made our wedding unique, but fun for everyone. Can't say enough great things."
Lindsay + Nic
"I worked with Nate and Lane at Amplify and they were both so great! Nate was a blast to work with and very helpful! Lane was my wedding day DJ and he was great as well! He was very good at feeling out the guests to play the best music for the crowd and knew exactly how to keep things running smoothly throughout the night!"
Morgan + Brian
"My husband and I would 100% recommend Amplify Entertainment to anyone looking for DJ services for a wedding. They offer the most complete wedding packages at the most affordable costs. Nate was wonderful to work with in the planning stages. He is incredibly kind, helpful and goes above and beyond to make sure your special day is exactly how you envisioned it. We had Jake (Nate's brother) as our DJ for our wedding. Simply put, Jake was amazing. He new exactly what song to play at the exact right time. He was fun, interacted extremely well with the crowd and was able to get almost everyone at the reception up and dancing. He was very knowledgeable and new exactly how to keep the wedding and reception running smoothly. Overall, you can't go wrong with Amplify Entertainment."
Nicole + William
"Nate is one of those caring, gifted people who immediately puts you at ease. As the mother of the bride, I accompanied my daughter and future son-in-law to speak with Nate about hiring Amplify for their wedding. We knew right away that we could trust Amplify to deliver exactly what they had in mind. Nate listened and paired them with DJ Lane and a package of services to perfectly match their personalities and wedding style – and my budget. Amplify’s planning questionnaires ensured their favorite songs were on the playlist and when we were stumped for music for the processional and dances Nate met with us, played recommendations based on the getting-to-know-you meeting and – again – came up with the perfect matches. Our guests are still laughing with us at the uplifting, sweet, fun, and funny processional! Nate was also there to discuss a creative option to provide acoustic music for the cocktail hour to respect the venue’s use requirements (even though we ultimately didn't need to use it). Finally, DJ Lane made sure the wedding guests could clearly hear the officiant and the vows, emceed the festivities flawlessly, and kept everyone out on the dance floor—even outside in 40 degree weather. We happily grew our family on that day, but Nate and Lane Amplified the wedding!"
Tracy (Mother of the Bride)
"I contacted Nate based on reviews and word of mouth from others. He was busy at an event when I contacted him, but he took the time to text and e-mail me to let me know that he would be in touch when his event was over. We scheduled a meeting and went over all the package prices and options. I felt that Nate's enthusiasm and music knowledge were awesome and we gave him a deposit and booked him that day. He sent us the wedding planning tools and guide that were VERY helpful in communicating the music and information about the wedding to him and his staff. The music for the ceremony and reception was handled by Patrick, everything was great - people had lots of fun...I would highly recommend Amplify Entertainment!"
Wendy (Mother of the Bride)
"DJ Dillon was great. He was on time, and executed our wedding ceremony's music plan perfectly. He was also able to accommodate our specific reception music requests as well. We appreciate Dillon's cooperation in calling out the answers to our corny wedding quiz. He did a great job, no drama, and got our family out there dancing! We didn't have to worry about a thing."
Nicole + Tim
"We are so happy with Amplify! We almost didn't use a DJ and at the last minute decided we needed one. They worked with us on the fly and provided a perfect experience. Could not have asked for more!"
Rebecca + Andrew
"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!!"
Ashley + Chris
"Patrick was the PERFECT Wedding DJ for my Dream Come True Wedding!!! He played the perfect songs at the perfect time! He said the perfect things! He was funny! 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!!!"
Jill + Brian
"Nate with Amplify is the absolute best DJ in Tallahassee! We had him for our wedding and it was amazing. I told him exactly what we wanted (what music and that I wanted all of the guest to be able to dance to the music) and he did just that plus more! He was very involved in the wedding and was great with the wedding guest (they all LOVED him)!! I would recommend Amplify for any event!"
Alexis + Tyler
"I found Amplify Entertainment through a Google search of available vendors in the Florida panhandle. I had a destination wedding and living 5 hours away from my venue and all of my vendors was overwhelming. Nate and I emailed back and forth and finally got to chat on the phone, for an hour!! It was such a relief to talk with him. He answered all my questions and walked me through every step of the ceremony and reception. When our wedding day came, Nate was there (early) and had everything set up and ready to go. Our ceremony music was perfect and so was the reception. I had a small wedding, only 50 or so guests so I was worried there wouldn't be much dancing. But I was wrong!!! Nate was on top of it!!!! He had everyone so pumped up and excited, we didn't want the party to end. He even got on the dance floor with us and had everyone dancing until the very last song! It was more than I could have ever asked for. Nate deserved a far larger tip than what we could afford. He was amazing. Best DJ ever. The end."
June + Kit
"Amplify Entertainment was a great DJ service. The lighting and add-ons to their packages are unique and technologically up to date. They are priced a little higher than other DJs in the area but they really are the best!"
Samantha + Timothy
"Thank you Nate, Lane and Amplify Entertainment - you helped to make our wedding amazing. From day 1, Nate was easy to work with and made this part of the process completely stress-free. He was patient as he guided us and offered recommendations for music. He thinks of everything - including packets that helped step by step with music selection and offered the DJ additional information. Lane was our DJ and always keep the dance floor busy - he was wonderful to work with. Lane added beautiful touches to our reception with uplighting and our monogram on the wall. I highly recommend Nate and his team at Amplify Entertainment."
Heather + Chris
"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."
Kuwanzasis + Jeshua
"Nate was awesome and hands down the best vendor we had involved with our wedding! It was a relief having him help keep everything so organized and he was a pleasure to work with. He kept everyone dancing until the end of the reception and chose music that perfectly matched our preferences! We are still receiving compliments about Nate and comments on how much fun every one had!"
Debbie + Will
"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!"
Teresa (Mother of the Bride)
"We used Amplify entertainment for our wedding reception in September. Nate, our DJ was great. He kept things moving on schedule and was able to accommodate all our on the spot request. More importantly, he did an amazing job getting the party started and keeping it going. He had the exact right mix of music for us and kept the dance floor rolling until we left. Can't recommend them enough."
Ben + Kala
"Nate was an amazing DJ! He got the party started and kept it going! The music was all perfect. Thanks so much!"
Kacie + Thomas
"Nate was awesome! His professionalism, attitude, and his ability to enhance the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were the best in town! Nate provided uplighting, monogram lighting that multiple guests noticed and appreciated. Nate seamlessly transitioned from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception went unnoticed and set the mood perfectly. Bottom line, Nate is fun and treats guests as his own family. 5 stars!!"
Katie + Chris
"Nate, I cannot tell you how grateful I am for the amazing job you did at our wedding! I am still on cloud nine and day dream about the day (sigh...) Many of my guests and family raved about you and how awesome the wedding was. You definitely kept the energy going with the crowd! One thing I learned about the day is how to adapt and move... and you helped make that easy and still everything was perfect! Thank you, thank you for helping our magical day be perfect. By the way, what you did with the song, Piano Man, was epic and memorable. That is "our song" for my brother, Major Josh, and it was fun to put him in the middle. You played every song that I requested at just the right time and sprinkled in your genius in between. People told me they have never been to a wedding that was so much fun. Other people who did not attend have told me they heard how great it was and hate that they missed it."
Christine + Kurt
"Nate was awesome! He was the very first vendor I booked for our wedding and I am so glad I did! He provided me with a list of other possible vendors - including multiple options for each category and different budgets. Based on his recommendations I booked some of the very best vendors who made my day amazing. Nate in particular was fantastic - our wedding was fun, organized (he made sure we stayed on time and on schedule), the music selections were great and all our guests had fun dancing throughout the night. He even did a special dance at the end where all the guests gathered around my husband and I - it was unexpected and so much fun! Book Nate - you will not regret it :)"
Jessica + Josh
"Nate was absolutely wonderful! He was super flexible and understanding to the music we wanted at the reception. He engages the guests but not in the cheesy typical wedding DJ way. Everyone had a blast dancing! Thank you again Nate for making my wedding a night to remember. I would definitely recommend Amplify Entertainment to anyone planning a wedding!"
Becky + Matt
"Just wanted you to know that you all did an AWESOME job! Jake was the best!! I had multiple comments from my guests about the guitarist, cocktail band and DJ! It was really really awesome! Jake is super professional and catered to our needs! Thank you so much for a job well done!"
Sharon + Matt
"You did a stellar job for our wedding. We heard many comments about how much our guests appreciated your professionalism on the mic and your music. And they didn’t even know that -- after 10 months of planning -- it was your lighting efforts IN THE HOUR BEFORE the reception that saved the whole event! That was a little more vulnerability than I was prepared for, but God was very gracious in giving us you to handle the problem! Thank you again so much for working out a truly lovely solution. That amber color was exquisite! Thanks also for your kind words about our family. It was a joy to have you with us for such a milestone!"
Maryanne (Mother of the Bride and Planner Extraordinaire)
"Amplify was perfect for our wedding needs. We had Nate as our DJ and he was great. Kept the flow of the wedding going and played many jams including R. Kelly :)"
Katherine + Josh
"Nate was a great DJ! He helped us through the planning process and accommodated all questions and requests from us. He kept the partying going til the very end of the night and every tells me they had a great time."
Amanda + Bobby
"Nate and his team of DJ experts did exactly what we needed them to do. They were our professional entertainers for the night. Nate was responsive to all email communications and helped us figure out how to incorporate our favorite songs into the ceremony and reception. Amplify Entertainment is hands down the best DJ company in the Tallahassee area."
Thais + Stephen
"We contracted with Nate Long of Amplify Entertainment for our daughter's wedding. Everyone has been complimenting us on selecting Nate. The guests didn't want to leave. Nate kept everyone going to the last minute. I would highly recommend Amplify Entertainment to anyone and specifically Nate."
Regina (Mother of the Bride)
"My husband and I knew we wanted to use Amplify Entertainment for our wedding, as Nate Long did an INCREDIBLE job at my sister's wedding. We were able to correspond with Nate throughout the entire planning process and we had Lane Wright as our DJ on our wedding day. Lane was amazing and made the entire night such a fun experience! During the planning process both Lane and Nate made my husband and I feel completely comfortable allowing them to have some flexibility with the playlist and Lane absolutely delivered. There was not one thing I would do differently! Thank you, Lane and Nate for the most perfect ceremony and reception music!"
Monica + Jared
"Nate was amazing! He kept the party going way into the night, and even stopped by our after party which was really cool. He was open, helpful, and made everything easy for us. I would highly recommend Amplify Entertainment to anyone looking for a great DJ."
Katie + Leo
"I cannot recommend Amplify Entertainment more highly! Working with Nate Long was a wonderfully stress-free experience from the moment of booking until the end of the wedding reception. Nate has every detail covered, he is available instantly for questions and concerns, and his experienced guidance is spot-on. His personality is perfect for a fun filled reception: we hoped for a classy experience that was at the same time full of energy and joy and Nate did not disappoint. We were fortunate enough to book Nate himself for our first daughter’s wedding and Lane Wright for our second daughter’s wedding…. eighteen months apart! Both were professional in every aspect and made the receptions unforgettably fun for every guest. Thank you Nate and Lane!"
Carolyn (Mother of the Bride)
"I hired Nate at Amplify Entertainment to DJ and provide lighting for my April wedding, and it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. From our initial contact, he was friendly, professional, and very helpful. I enjoyed meeting him so much that I signed a contract that day without any hesitation. He offered reasonably priced packages, had an obvious love of music and entertainment, and had only rave reviews (including from my other vendors). Nate is a very talented DJ, entertainer, and businessman, and it was a joy working with him. He had great suggestions for our timeline, music selection, and lighting options but made it clear that everything was our choice. I am delighted with how everything turned out- the lighting looked amazing, the music was perfect, and everyone was dancing and having a great time all night. I cannot imagine a better DJ or a more pleasant person to work with! I hope to have the opportunity to work with Nate and Amplify Entertainment in the future!"
Sarah + Chris
"Amplify Entertainment and DJ Nate were absolutely wonderful at our wedding. He played the best songs that ensured our guests had a lot of fun and danced the night away. During the planning process, we knew that we wanted to play some of our all-time favorite songs during the reception, and Nate was so accommodating to include these in his playlist without any questions. The planning process was a breeze with the great user-friendly ceremony and reception worksheets that they provide to help you with the planning process.....Not a detail was missed. Thank you again Nate for everything!! You were fantastic and we would highly recommend you to anyone and everyone!!"
Holly + Andrew
"Choosing Amplify Entertainment was one of the best decisions this pair of brides made in planning our wedding! From the first moment we emailed back and forth with Nate, we knew our wedding entertainment was in good hands, and this was further confirmed in our first meeting. Nate handled every detail of wedding planning with care and gave wonderful advice without being pushy. The reception timeline he suggested allowed us to enjoy a relaxed dinner, visit with every guest, and then have an AMAZING dance party! Everyone had a fun time at our reception, and we know it was in big part to Nate's attention to detail and amazing personality. Choose Amplify Entertainment - you will not be disappointed!"
Emily + Ashley
"Dakota and Amplify Entertainment were great. We were VERY pleased with everything! Thank you!"
David + Doug
"Amplify Entertainment ROCKS! There is no other way to put it. We worked with Nate through the process and he was absolutely amazing. A pleasure to work with him. He was always very responsive and just an all around awesome guy. Jake his brother is who actually was the DJ at our wedding. We met him at our last meeting and he was just as awesome. He made sure he had all of the information so that our day was perfect and smooth, and that it was. Everyone had such an amazing time and that couldn't have been done without Jake and Nate! Thank you guys for being a part of our wedding day. Anyone looking for a DJ, Amplify is the way to go!!!"
Lauren + Zach
"I absolutely enjoyed working with Nate & Jake from Amplify Entertainment. Nate was so thorough and made the whole process so easy. They are extremely organized which was nice. Jake did such an AWESOME job at our wedding. He kept the party going which was so fun. I would use them again for a party. I highly recommend them."
Anabelle + Josh
"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."
Maria + John
"Nate Long was a phenomenal DJ. From making my day work as smooth as possible to dealing with my stress, he helped me with a smile and reminded me he was there to help. Nate made our wedding night go off without a hitch. Our timeline changed throughout the night and he was more than accommodating. I highly recommend Nate and Amplify Entertainment."
Allison + Sean
"Can't go wrong with Amplify Entertainment! They made our reception a blast! Nate was amazing!! Easy to work with and definitely knows what he is doing! Our wedding was a blast because of our awesome DJ! Everyone kept telling us how fun and high energy our DJ was! Can't wait for the pictures!"
Nichole + Ashley
"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
"You want Amplify Entertainment as your DJ!!!! Miles was awesome! We met with Miles the week of the wedding and went over song selections and the general feel we wanted our reception to have. He helped us pick songs for all the events (cake cutting, entrances, etc.) and played a perfect variety and mix of songs that kept people dancing until 11:30. He was amazing at judging the crowd and if he played a song and could tell people didn't respond he made a smooth transition to a different one without having the whole song play. I am so happy he was our DJ and he could not have been any better!"
Loren + Jesse
"I had the pleasure of Nate handling all of my music for me! He was absolutely wonderful. My mother and I cannot stop raving about how awesome he was. He is so easy to work with and handles everything with great professionalism. I would recommend him and the company time and time again."
Tennille + Carl
"We loved working with Nate and Amplify. We had to plan our wedding from a distance, so we never actually got to meet with them in person, but I have zero regrets. From our first Skype interview, we knew that they were in the right hands. Nate listened to both of our requests and matched us up with Cameron as our actual "day of" Dj, who hit the nail right on the head with our playlist. He did great during the ceremony and I loved that he kept our request for 90s music in mind, even during the ceremony with the acoustic music played beforehand (that I heard while waiting in the bathroom to walk down the aisle haha.) We had a small wedding of about 60 people, and everyone was on the dance floor having a good time. He mixed my husbands love of country "sing along" songs and dance music perfectly, and it made for a kick ass evening. I will be recommending them to anyone I know getting married in the Tallahassee area!"
Kirsten + Beau
"I can't say enough good things about Amplify Entertainment. We were trying to do a lot on our own. When we sat down to talk about details, it was like we had hired not only our DJ, but a day of coordinator. They helped with so many ideas we were toying with. We hired them for ceremony and reception and they helped us execute our procession line and introductions. When it came time to party they didn't disappoint. Music selection was great and they did everything we wanted and more. Chris and Kendal even got out on the dance floor with us. Highly highly recommend Amplify Entertainment!!!!"
Amy + Rob
"We loved having Amplify Entertainment DJ our wedding reception. No one told me they enjoyed the cake or the food- everyone told me how great our DJ was. Nate and his team are incredibly thorough. We had a phone meeting that went through every detail - things that I would've never thought to talk to my DJ about. Our DJ (Lane) even brought his own table covering because I didn't rent one and it went along perfectly with our colors."
Cole + Laura
"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!"

"Amplify Entertainment is not just a DJ company. They are a friend company. Nate was absolutely amazing to work with. His attention to detail with every aspect of every moment was fantastic. Nate made my wedding so exciting, playing the right music at the right time. Everyone enjoyed how he started off with quiet music so people could talk while they were eating. Then he slowly pumped up the party. Nate and Amplify Entertainment are the best!! Without them my wedding would have not been pumping like it as. Thank you Nate for making my wedding unforgettable and memorable!!!!"

"Amplify Entertainment was great to work with! Both Nate, the owner, and Lane, our DJ, really got our vibe and played great music that felt very specific to us. It helps that they are younger and they seem to understand what modern people getting married want to hear while still catering to the older crowd attending your wedding. I highly recommend reaching out to them if you are looking for a DJ."

"We used Amplify Entertainment for our wedding, and they were beyond awesome. Our venue restricted amplified music for the first 2.5 hours of our wedding, so the Amplify staff got Jake and their band together and played for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and a little more; they were great! They were quiet enough to serve as background music but loud enough to provide entertainment, and they played a great variety of wedding-appropriate music (nothing cheesy :) ). Nate was our DJ for the second half of the event, and he, of course, was great too. He put in a lot of man hours on the front end to help us plan, then when the weather turned out to be colder than expected, he had to improvise and stray from the songs we’d originally picked in order to get people dancing and warming up—everyone ended up having a blast. Nate also stepped up in a big way to help coordinate the ceremony and the reception when he found out that my coordinator broke her ankle the day before. Couldn’t have done it without Nate’s help! All in all—we’re so glad we picked Amplify Entertainment. They were very affordable without sacrificing quality in any way. I’d recommend them to anyone."

"Amplify is the best choice we have ever made. Nate made our wedding. People were up and dancing the whole night and 2 of them had casts on! They can't stop talking about "the best DJ ever!" Nate had every type of music you could imagine right down to all of our Queen songs and the string quartet Star Trek theme I walked the aisle to. He's affordable and very talented. Your Tallahassee wedding will be seriously lacking if you don't go with Amplify."

"We wanted to let you know what a wonderful job Jake did DJ-ing our wedding. He was awesome and not only did he keep the party going, but he remained in communication with John and me the entire night to make sure things were going as smoothly as possible. All of our guests had nothing but glowing things to say about the music and what a wonderful party it was. Jake was flexible with last minute changes in our plan and was very professional. John and I did not have the easiest wedding planning process with the change in management at Wakulla Springs in November, but we both agreed that every time we interacted with you, our experience was fun, professional, and made us even more excited about our wedding. We wish every wedding professional we worked with were as wonderful as you all. All this is to say, thank you. Thank you and Jake for contributing to making our wedding the best day ever."

"I just had my wedding a week ago. We booked them on a friends suggestion, with no previous knowledge. At our first meeting, I knew right away that they were going to be great! We gave him, Nate, our "ideas" of what we wanted and let him be a "DJ" for the rest. Very professional & courteous throughout the whole process. He also did some day of coordination that was extremely helpful. I can't say enough nice things about this business. I would have gladly paid double for the night that we had! Thanks again Nate!"

How will your wedding be remembered?
Amplify Entertainment was founded as a different kind of wedding DJ company. When founder Nate Long noticed that too many DJs were either DJing weddings like they were in a club or like they were stuck in the ’90s, he knew there had to be a better way. He witnessed painful examples of what happens when weddings DJs focus on anything but the experience of their clients and guests. In a sector of the wedding industry where lack of professionalism and fear of technology run rampant, Amplify Entertainment was founded in 2006 as the antithesis of the typical DJ company by embracing technology and delivering not only a great day-of experience for our clients, but throughout the entire booking and planning process. Now, Tallahassee-based Amplify Entertainment performs more than 200 events each year, most of which are weddings, for the best clients we could have ever hoped for. We truly love what we do and we hope it shows during each and every wedding.
We have worked with the most diverse group of clients you could imagine. They differ in musical taste, age, culture, ethnicity, language and personality. Some prefer the spotlight and others prefer to sneak into their own wedding. Some value tradition while others prefer to march to a different beat. One thing all of our clients have in common is that they want to have a fun and memorable evening that they will cherish for decades. We don’t believe in cookie-cutter weddings. We believe that your wedding should be personalized to you — in music, in DJ/emcee style, in lighting, in flow and in every other detail over which we have control. We’re lucky to never perform the exact same type of wedding twice!
While every wedding we perform is unique, the process to get there is the same. We work with you as a part of your wedding consulting team to ensure that each entertainment-related decision fits your style and vision for your wedding. No detail is overlooked and our Wedding Planning Kit ensures that your vision is made into reality on your wedding day.
A Handful of Beliefs That Guide How We Work With Our Clients:
- Weddings should bring out the personalities of the bride and groom.
- Anything that can be prepared in advance should be prepared in advance.
- Things never turn out 100% as planned, so after preparation comes flexibility and agility.
- Creative use of technology can make a big impact. Technology enables, not hinders.
- Highly personalized weddings always trump cookie-cutter weddings.
- Professionalism always trumps cockiness.
- Doing right always trumps being right.
- Making people dance and smile always trumps making the beat match perfectly.
- Focus on the client and all else will follow.
- Monetary tips are for above-and-beyond client experiences. Not for ensuring the DJ gets paid fairly.
- There are certain things that can be taught and certain things that can’t. We search out DJs who have those things that can’t be taught.
- There is never a good reason to play the chicken dance. Unless the bride herself requests it.
- Details matter. A lot.
- Communication always trumps assumption.
- The maid of honor and best man have one job: Don’t let a drunk relative ruin the fun.
- If it feels awkward, don’t feel like you have to do it.
- People in the wedding party deserve to have their names pronounced correctly.
- Our clients deserve to experience the evening of a lifetime.
- We have one burning ambition: the relentless pursuit of the perfect wedding according to you.
