"You'll never find an event company quite like Ampersand"


We aren't satisfied with "basic", "standard", or "average" - and YOU shouldn't be either.

We're always asking our team "What else can we do to make this better, more unique, bespoke, and personalized for our client?"

The answer usually comes when we have run out of things to say "and..." about.

Our company was founded on the concept of "AND"

DJs & Lighting & Sound & Planning & Decor & Imagination & Memories & ...

We are the simple solution for your complex event needs.

Ben and jen are the best! They know exactly what they are doing and it is one less thing you have to worry about when planning your wedding. Our day was perfect and they played a huge role in that. They are professional and help you with your ideas. They also have lighting options for your venue which add a beautiful touch. We highly recommend them!

Ben & Jen are fabulous!! They were eager to work with us, and help in all that we needed early on in the wedding planning. We met with them in the comfort of their home, and got to see their amazing DJ equipment and examples of the monogram lighting they were able to get made for us to be projected onto the dance floor. It turned out gorgeous!
Their online system for requesting songs for specific dances, etc. was great and easy to use. They made sure they got a feel for the genres of music we wanted played. They were thorough and contacted our venue to make sure they were prepared for all necessary for the big day!
We had our wedding this past weekend, and it was great! So many of our guests complimented the music and DJ, everyone was out on the dance floor until the latest possible minute! Ben & Jen were great at keeping us on track, making sure we had enough time for each part of the wedding night, and made sure to make all announcements etc.
The wedding night was a blast, and we couldn't have done it without them! Jeremy and myself are SO happy we chose Ampersand Events to DJ for our big day!! We'll definitely be recommending them to friends & family!
