It's my opinion that a dj can make or break a wedding and should be considered one of the most important decisions in planning. Mike and Brian from Amp'd Atlanta were so easy to deal with from the very beginning to the very end. They were very interested in getting to know me and my husband and our taste so that they could choose the right music for our friends and family. Brian was spot on with his choices. He involved the crowd and managed the party at the perfect level. I highly recommend Amp'd Atlanta. They made our wedding amazing.
I honestly don't have enough good things to say about Mike Walsh and Amp'd Atlanta. During the planning stages Mike was always available for any questions or concerns we had. He was incredibly thorough and asked all the right questions. Mike made great suggestions that made our evening spectacular. He was without a doubt the most reliable, professional, and helpful person we worked with throughout the whole wedding process. Night of, he kept the dance floor packed all night, everyone worked up a sweat! All of our guests complimented how great his music was. The two videographers we worked with that night were incredibly kind and captured great moments, we can't wait to see their footage. I truly wish we were planning another event just so we could work with Mike again. Hurry up and book him!
AMPD Atlanta was recommended to me by my wedding coordinator at Ashley Baber Weddings.
My fiancé and I met with Hollon Yarborough, the AMPD DJ who was available for our wedding, and we both agreed that Hollon came across as super laid back, knowledgeable, and experienced. Hollon asked about our music preferences and he seemed to really understand what feel we were going for with our ceremony and reception.
I have to admit that I procrastinated WAY too much in selecting my wedding music and getting all the information to Hollon that he needed. The last month before my wedding was CRAZY! Hollon and the owner of AMPD, Mike Walsh, could not have been more patient and understanding with me, or more helpful in their attempts to keep me on track.
After I finally got my very specific music selections to Hollon (with about 48 hours notice...) he delivered tenfold! Every single song I particularly requested was played during the exact points in the evening that I asked them to be.
In addition to my specific song requests, I sent a list of artists and bands my fiancé and I like, and Hollon interpreted our musical tastes to a tee.
I will recommend AMPD to my friends and family, and I'm happy to recommend them to the Wedding Channel community as well!
Thanks Emily! No worries at all, too! We know how crazy it can be leading up to your wedding so we were hear to help at any hour. I am very appreciative for this specific testimonial from you because Customer Service is so crucial to success of th...
DJ Mike is the best! Also helped us with our videography. Kept everyone dancing the whole time!
Attentive to our suggestions and musical stylings!
Mike was the best DJ we could have asked for! Sometimes you go to weddings and no one dances- well that was absolutely not the case! Mike played songs that kept the dance floor completely full up until the very end of the wedding! We are still receiving compliments about how involved Mike was and how he truly made the crowd come alive! He listened to all of our requests (like shortening the length of father-daughter and mother-son dances) and was entertaining! We did give Mike a list if suggested songs but also gave him free range to play what he thought was best. Letting him choose is the way to go- he is the professional and chooses the best music for the certain crowd! We will recommend him to all of our friends and family for their upcoming events!
DJ Hollan was simply fantastic. Not only was he great to work with from the very beginning but he was so professional throughout our entire wedding planning process. He really took time to get to know us and get feelers for what type of wedding party we wanted. He had a difficult task of playing not just western, modern music but also Persian music. He couldn't have done a better job. The dance floor was packed the ENTIRE party. He read the crowd perfectly and played a perfect combination of both types of music. Do you want to have the best party ever? Book Hollan. HE ROCKS!!! I couldn't recommend him enough and I'm hard to please!!
I was very impressed with Amp'd. We communicated a number of times before the wedding and they were exceptional when it came to getting the exact versions of songs that I wanted for the ceremony and even using a piece of music that I edited to fit a certain amount of time. We also discussed them using their judgment in terms of deviating from my music play list during the reception in order to get people to dance. While I enjoy rap music, my original list did not have any on it in order to be more multi-generational. As a result, my DJ incorporated more dance/rap music to try to get people to dance, which did not happen. After trying, I would have preferred that he had gone back to my original choices more but in all fairness I did not say anything at the time because I was focused on other things. Great work, just be sure you stick to what you want or include caveats and they will follow your direction. All of this said, I would use them again.
DJ Big H was awesome. Very easy to work with. Very easy to for everything, made our day less stressful! I would 100% recommend Amped Atl and DJ Big H. Kyle Adams
We couldn't be happier with the job that Hollon with Amp'd Entertainment did with the sound for our wedding ceremony, and DJing our reception. His skill-set and specialization is one of a kind, the result of 15 years DJ experience and a lifetime of music appreciation. He is a great person to be around, and was so much fun to work with. He always had the perfect suggestion for our musical tastes, and is a virtual encyclopedia of the coolest tracks in the world! Plus he knows how to tailor them to your specific event. When the reception arrived, there were no surprises...except the level of participation from our crowd. Virtually everyone was on the dance floor, dancing and singing, and clapping along exuberantly throughout the duration of our final song (best send-off ever).
In summary, we can't imagine our wedding with any other DJ. Hollon is a true talent, and a true professional. He'll take care of you for whatever special occasion or event you are planning.
Hollon did a fantastic job at our wedding reception! The crowd enjoyed the music selections and had a great time dancing and celebrating. Thanks for a memorable night!
Amp'd Atlanta staff were all super easy & fun to work with from the very beginning of planning our wedding! DJ Bigg H aka Hollon was AWESOME!! He was great to work with, always prepared & very accommodating. We used him for our ceremony & reception and he did a fantastic job, playing the most perfect songs to set the mood! On top of being a great DJ, Hollon went above & beyond our expectations working with the other wedding vendors & our coordinator to assure everything was perfect! We could not have had a more awesome time!! We will definitely be using DJ Bigg H again in the future. We strongly recommend him for any event from weddings to house parties or corporate events.
Thank you again Hollon!!
We saw Amp'd Atlanta in action at a friend's wedding and knew we had to book them for ours as well. Mike made an effort to get to know our music preferences and the vibe we wanted for our reception. He was very professional and he was great at reading the crowd. In our humble opinions, it was the best wedding dance party we've ever been a part of. So much fun and everything we hoped it would be.
We could not have picked a better Dj! He was amazing! Jeremy kept the reception going the whole night. Everyone after said it was the best reception they had been too. He was very professional, fun, and full of life. He was Always on time. If you are anything like me, I was Lost at all that needed to be done/ decide and he helped us every step of the way. All around the best Dj I have heard and dealt with. Amp'd Atlanta is the way to go! Thank you Mike and Jeremy for all you did !
There are not enough words to express my gratitude and praise of this group. Especially DJ Bigg H (Hollon). He went above and beyond to ensure that my wedding with my wife was a hit. Going as far to create a one of a kind mash up of our songs. Guests at our wedding said he was the best they have ever heard and you would be very pleased to have him spin for you. I also want to note, not that it should matter, but if you are a same-sex couple like us, looking for a great DJ, give him a call! He treated us with respect and threw an amazing party and I think we were his first. Check these guys out!
Hollon did an amazing job. He made sure everything was just how we wanted it. He was responsive and easy to work with. All of our guests had a blast! HIGHLY recommended.
Both my husband and I are music nerds so this was probably the most important vendor to book for us. When we met with Mike we found a fellow music nerd who, it turns out, worked in radio the same time that my husband did and we ended up talking for way longer than we should have! Once booked, Amp'd had an incredibly easy website to work with and we got to add all of our songs by the events of the day (e.g. Billie Holiday during the cocktail hour, David Bowe during the seated buffet, etc.). If they didn't have a song in their database they would get it for you and Mike did an awesome job MC'ing the night. He makes sure that if you don't want requests from all of your drunk wedding guests he won't do it and he certainly won't be playing any cheesy music like the Macarena :D So much fun and well worth it. Our only regret was that we booked our photobooth before we knew that Amp'd also offered this service as I'm sure that would have been excellent too!
Mike was awesome. Super nice, super responsive, super talented. He worked with us to accomplish what we wanted to, including timing of certain songs. I docked a point just because he announced the Best Man and Best Woman together, but we had asked him to do so separately to drag out their intro song; Minor detail. He is great at what he does. You can tell how professional he is by his song transitions. HIs website is really easy to use, and he really uses your requests.
Mike did a great job as the DJ for our wedding. Working with him up to the event was very simple. Mike did a great job playing music that would get all of our guests on the dance floor, and he kept the dance floor packed the entire night!
Amp'd Atlanta provided the music for my wedding ceremony and reception. Mike Walsh did a fantastic job choosing just the right songs to play to keep the party going. His unobtrusive style, professional demeanor, and expertise in his field made for the perfect night! I would highly recommend Amp'd Atlanta for DJ services.
Just what every wedding needs! Photo booths are still all the rage and our guests had a great time. The attendants arrived early and had everything set up in time for people to use the booth! There were great props provided; we didn’t have to supply anything at all. The photobooth ran smoothly all night long so we never had to worry/think about it. At the end of the night, we got our memory book right away! This was one of the best parts… in the hustle-bustle of wedding day business, you don’t get to say hello to everyone! But right away, at the end of the night, we were able to definitively see that everyone had a great time, and they all left us adorable messages to read in the book. Everything was perfect! The booth itself was cute and everyone was telling us how much fun they had using it. We had people out on the dance floor dressed in the props which made for great shots later as well! Thanks for everything, we highly recommend going with AmpdAtlanta !!
