    Since our daughter lives out of town, we did the interviewing and securing of all vendors for her special day. From the moment we met Nate Long with Amplify, we knew he was the one we wanted to handle the music! We couldn’t have been more pleased with our decision! Nate is the best of the best! From the music for the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, to getting every single guest on the dance floor at the reception, his energy was nonstop! First class all the way!

    AMPLIFY's reply:

    Thank you for your feedback, Cay! What an incredible wedding day it was, and I'm thrilled that you chose me to be a part of it. It was such a pleasure working with you through the process! It really was the perfect wedding day -- beautiful, fun, memorable, classy. You really put a lot of thought, effort and care into everything, and it showed through for your daughter. You and your guests were too much fun, and I would totally do it all over again in a heartbeat. Thanks again for trusting me with the DJing/emceeing for your daughter's wedding day and I wish you and your family the very best! -Nate

Team

Nate
Nate
Chief Entertainment Officer

Music has played a defining role in Nate’s life since at least age three, when he and his brother Mike would beg their parents to play 1812 Overture so they could run around the house and fight battles. There’s a VHS video somewhere of four-year-old Nate singing at the top of his lungs to Billy Ocean. His dad made mix tapes of ‘70s and early ‘80s classic rock and he eventually did the same for his friends and brothers, but in the new era of CD burning. Nate started his DJ career at 16 years old, DJing for his friends and working with his dad, who DJed as a side hobby to pay for his love of music and high-quality speakers.

Around the same time, Nate also started playing bass guitar and formed a rock band with some of his best friends (he would later be a part of three other bands throughout high school and college). As the frontman and lead singer, Nate loved the experience of being on stage and leading a party-hard crowd that danced, bounced, and sang along. Nate DJed his first wedding way back in 2002 when his dad was leaving the industry. He then worked for a few other companies before founding Amplify in 2006 to create a very different kind of DJ company -- one built from the ground up with a focus on attention to every detail, personalized and made fun for each client and all of their guests and bringing the energy of a band to the DJ world.

Over the years, Nate has performed more than a thousand events. His approach to DJing is often described as high-energy, interactive, approachable, genuine and friendly. His experience as both a DJ and a rocker taught him that practically any performance is much more fun and rewarding as a participatory sport rather than a spectator sport. His longest period of straight DJing was for a wedding in Florida that started at noon and -- when no one wanted the night to end -- kept it up for more than 15 hours, finally ending at 3:30 a.m.

He often measures his success as a DJ by how exhausted and drenched in sweat the event guests are at the end of the night. He loves getting that one grandma, whose granddaughter has never seen her bust a move, to dance the night away and have as much fun as the bride herself. While Nate loves every moment of a wedding, from ceremony to send-off, he lives for that moment when he gets to open the dance floor and try to win over a brand new crowd, joining them in creating an evening to remember for his clients and their guests.

Jake
Jake
DJ/MC

What makes Jake stand out as a DJ is his ability to be both detail-oriented and go-with-the-flow. You will notice this common theme among reviews for the 300+ events Jake has DJed. “Every inch of detail was covered, and everything was perfect.” “Jake never rushed us and made us feel confident the day would go smoothly.” “Jake did such a great job mixing all of the different kinds of music we wanted and did such a good job reading the crowd.” “[He] made things so smooth without all the added stress.” Check out the glowing reviews below to get an idea of how focused Jake is on ensuring each wedding is even better than hoped for.

Jake’s dream since he was in third grade was to be a rockstar. Since then, he has toured through the entire North American continent performing in Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. He has lived in Central America and speaks fluent Spanish. This experience and knowledge of Hispanic culture and language has made him a particularly popular choice for Spanish-speaking events.

Jake notes that DJing is similar to being on stage. It gets the adrenalin pumping, and the goal is always to make the night unforgettable for every single person in attendance. Jake also fronted pop group Brightside. Having gained the ability from his band to address large crowds and his experience with other cultures, Jake knows how to amplify any kind of event! In all, Jake's priority is to hyper-focus on each client's needs and help keep their wedding stress-free and fun!

Darvon
Darvon
DJ/MC

Darvon first got into music at the age of nine. His first instrument was a violin provided by his elementary school in the fourth grade. A year later, he joined the school choir. Darvon didn't own instruments of his own outside of school. Luckily his amazing mother owned a huge collection of Motown albums, and he has fond memories dancing and singing karaoke in the basement with his family. When he was 14, Darvon started rapping, greatly inspired by Motown legend Eminem, and walked to his local Radio Shack on 8-mile to purchase a desktop microphone and start recording his songs.

Throughout high school, Darvon recorded his raps over other artist instrumentals and rap-battled online. After high school, he was accepted into FAMU and moved to Florida. He continued his rapping career while adding to his musical skillset by adding production and DJing to his repertoire. Greatly inspired by Tallahassee nightlife, he DJed house parties and continued expanding his genre knowledge and it was about that time years back that he joined Amplify.

Darvon has opened for Ying Yang Twins, Ilovemakoneen, Inspecta Deck (Wu-Tang), Mike Jones, and many more artists as an emcee. He still loves music, whether its DJing, producing, or rapping and brings his wide range of music knowledge and experience to any event, from weddings (where his attention to detail is applauded by Amplify clients) to parties.
