Ask Lane what his favorite type of music is and he’ll have a hard time giving you an answer. The truth is he likes music from literally every genre, except maybe polka (no offense, polka fans!). He’s been rocking everything from weddings and company parties to Quinceñeras and mitzvahs for Amplify since 2014, but weddings are his bread and butter.
When he’s announcing the wedding party and the bride and groom for their grand introduction into the reception, Lane channels his inner event rockstar and trust -- it works. When it’s time to dance, Lane brings enough energy to get the crowd going, but he’s not overbearing on the mic. If the crowd on the dance floor gets thin he switches tactics to find the right vibe and bring it back. He describes it as a game of reading the crowd and anticipating what they need to hear to keep the party jumping and he acknowledges that it’s never the same for any two groups.
When he’s not creating magic on the dance floor, you might find Lane at home with his wife and four little kids. Or at home working for a national education nonprofit trying to help kids in need get access to a high-quality education. Or at home building himself a home office in the backyard so he can hide from his four kids and get some work done.
After all these years of watching couples share their vows and say, "I do," Lane still finds each wedding touching. And every time, it makes him think of how much he loves his own wife and how she deserves the best he can give her. Ultimately, for Lane, DJing is one part love of music, and the other part... just love.
