"We loved working with Nate and most importantly Zac! Nate worked with us in the preliminary stages to set proper expectations. Their client portal is very thorough and we were able to read bios on all of the DJs. We chose very wisely when we selected Zac. We only had to have one conversation with Zac before feeling pretty relaxed about how everything would go, since the music portion of our wedding was very important to us. Of course, day of, torrential downpours. But that didn’t stop Zac from rolling with the punches. We also had multiple areas of our widespread outside venue we wanted speaker systems on, and he was very accommodating with relocating them. By the end of the night, we had a very energetic group on the dance floor, after all of our requested songs were played. We couldn't be happier with how the music turned out at our wedding. Thank you Nate for making this a very organized process and thank you Zac for being such an awesome DJ and an unforgettable element for our wedding!"

"We hired Amplify for a fundraising event and were very happy! Zac was our DJ. He did a great job! He showed up on time and really got the crowd going. He was also very friendly and personable. If we had to do it again, we wouldn't change a thing. We loved working with Zac!"

"Amplify was wonderful to work with. Nate was quick to respond to any questions or concerns, and were super flexible with our meetings, they were even willing to meet after work hours. Zac was the perfect fit for our wedding day. He was engaged and energetic, keeping the dance floor packed and ensuring everyone was having a good time. I would highly recommend Amplify over and over again. Great company to work with!!"

Clients Review Zac
A Florida native, Zac has been obsessed with music and science fiction since he was 7 years old and watched Star Wars: A New Hope for the first time; nothing made Darth Vader more terrifying (or awesome) than John Williams’ Imperial March. A decade of piano lessons, Orson Scott Card, and a guitar purchase later, Zac was telling stories of his own through songwriting, short stories, and his one man DJ service right up until he decided to put pen, mixer, and strings down for two years to serve the people of California. Not too long after he returned home, Zac got married, started a family, became a professional Shakespearean actor for a while, learned Hebrew and Greek, and dusted off the old PA system to DJ events along the far western Panhandle.
What was the first album you ever owned?
No Fences by Garth Brooks (where I was first introduced to my karaoke favorite, Friends in Low Places!)
Who are your favorite artists?
Classic ’70s and ’80s rock and pop are my staples (Michael Jackson, Kansas, Queen, David Bowie, Toto, etc.), but I love anything with a beat I can dance to or that’s fun to sing along with. Even if I don’t know the words or the beat, if it’s good, you can bet I’ll be out on the dance floor.
What song is queued up on your phone/iPod right now?
Smooth Criminal – Michael Jackson.
How would you describe your DJ style?
Eclectic. Any song can bring the house down on any night, it just depends on the vibe and the event. You gotta be open to the crowd and what they want (sometimes what they don’t know they want yet). That’s the fantastic and enchanting thing about music; in the moment, the right song can take a night from fun to legendary.
What’s the best Star Wars movie and the order in which to watch them?
If you’re watching them for the first time, start with the O-ridge Tridge (Ep.4-6), then Prequels, then, the new ones.
Ep. VI, Return of the Jedi. Hands down.
If you’ve seen then before go with The Machete Order:
- IV, A New Hope
- V, The Empire Strikes Back
- II, Attack of the Clones
- III, Revenge of the Sith
- VI, Return of the Jedi
