The best kind of vibes
No more hassle.
Can’t choose between a DJ and live music? Both have their strong pros: Booking a live musician or band provides a certain ambience and adds to the elegance and high-end feel of an event, but song selection is typically limited by the number of songs they can play (around 200 for the best bands) and by the style of music they best match. A DJ, in our case, also acts as an "emcee" (or master of ceremonies) and is therefore better equipped to handle your reception. Our DJs also have a song selection of millions, not hundreds, spanning all genres of music from pop and rock to jazz and hip hop to Latin and bluegrass. The song selection is practically limitless, which is especially a benefit for weddings that plan to have a lot of dancing.
Booking both a DJ and one or more live musicians can be a hassle that involves different companies and coordination headaches, not to mention prohibitively expensive. Amplify changes all that and removes the headache and astronomical cost by offering DJs and live musicians through one company and one process. You’ll get the best of both worlds and have a single point of contact for ALL things music and emcee, resulting in a more seamless, higher quality (yet also less expensive) experience. You can also mix it up and make your own super group -- think cello, keyboard and guitar. You can even combine DJ + musician, as we've done recently with lounge jazz DJ + live saxophonist.
We have you covered.
Many of our clients will book a string trio or a violinist and guitarist duo, for example, for their ceremony, and then book a jazz trio, guitarist or cocktail band for their cocktail hour. Then the DJ’s music takes over from there. The best part is that the DJ is also there during the time the live musicians are so that they are getting their proper queues, speaker systems are managed as needed (including any wireless mics for the ceremony) and everything is run from one reliable company. ALL of your music needs — both DJ and live music — can be met seamlessly through Amplify! Let’s rock!
