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!Sent on 03/03/2021
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

My wife and I chose Amplify Entertainment as the DJ at our wedding last week, and that was the second best decision we made. The best decision was opting for the Nate Guarantee. Nate, the founder of Amplify, went above and beyond like nothing I could have imagined. This dude knows music, and is passionate about bringing you exactly what you want to your event. I feel like my wife and I made a friend, rather than just worked with a vendor. 2 amazing things he did to make the night unforgettable was use my wife's late grandmother's organ music during our ceremony that we converted to mp3s for him. The second thing he did was throw on my homemade Marshmello helmet from back when I went to a show and dance with us. It was amazing, and I recommend him and any DJ with this company to anyone looking to amplify their event!Sent on 03/01/2021
AMPLIFY's reply:Thanks, McLain! Your wedding was the must-attend event of the year! 🔥 What a truly epic wedding day and I was really looking forward to being a part of it, especially considering your eclectic taste in music. I'm so glad we were able to use Olivia's Nana's recording for your ceremony -- the perfect touch that made the wedding ceremony even more special. As soon as you hinted at the Marshmello helmet idea, I was all in and knew it would be an awesome moment! I definitely felt like I was DJing for old friends and glad you two felt the same way -- thanks so much for choosing Amplify and I hope you two never stop going to shows and dancing! My very best wishes to you both! -Nate

Above and beyond
We truly appreciate all that Nate and Darvon did for us to make our wedding perfect! Everything went smoothly and we were impressed by the responsiveness and professionalism. So much attention to detail, down to letting us request specific songs and sending us the playlist ahead of time. We'd recommend Amplify to anyone looking a DJ.Sent on 03/30/2021

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, who’s granddaughter has never seen her bust a move, 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.
Jake’s dream since he was in 3rd 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. At the age of 19, Jake took a break from his music career to dedicate two years of his life to service. Jake learned Spanish and served the people of Central America for two years helping people build houses, overcome addictions and grow closer to Jesus Christ. This experience and knowledge of Hispanic culture and language has made him a particularly popular choice for Spanish-speaking events.
“DJing is really similar to being on stage” said Jake, “It gets the adrenalin pumping, and the goal is always to make the night unforgettable for every single person in attendance. The only difference is I have a laptop in front of me instead of a guitar!” Jake also fronts pop group Brightside. Having gained the ability from his band to address large crowds and his mission experience to speak multiple languages, Jake knows how to amplify any kind of event!
Can your wedding be exactly what you want it to be? With Jake it can! He will cater to all your needs and keep your wedding stress-free. So, if you want the kind of experience this bride had: “Our guests are still telling us how much fun our wedding was, and I truly believe that’s because of Jake,” book Jake today.

Look no further because Amplify Entertainment is the perfect DJ for your wedding! They always keep the dance floor rockin', hand pick each song for each couple so that every wedding is different, and keep the reception right on schedule without anyone feeling rushed. Nate and his team are all professional, incredibly nice, and wonderful to work with. I look forward to seeing them at practically every wedding I photograph!
Great deejay and very interactive with the crowd. Very easy and fun to work with!
Nate and the team at Amplify Entertainment are so awesome! Every time they've DJ'd a wedding I've also photographed, they are so helpful and make sure to let me know when the next thing is coming up during the reception- plus they are so awesome at keeping the party going! It's always so much fun to work with Amplify!
