A Record Year Comes to a Close!

12-29-2015

2015 was a year for the record books here at Amp’d Entertainment!  We set new standards and rocked a record 300 plus events!  Here is our annual year in review!

January

The very start of 2015 would start with a bang as we were honored to be named Top 5 DJs by Modern Luxury’s Atlantan Brides Magazine!

The start of the year would also be very exciting as we continued our partnership with StudioWed Atlanta and moved into our first dedicated office and warehouse located inside of the studio .

Stop by and see some great new additions to our office in 2016!  There are some amazing event photos as well new awards that will grace our wall.

2015 was also our first full year under the newer logo, name and brand identity, Amp’d Entertainment (previously, Amp’d Atlanta).  The change was made partly because we had the opportunity to expand into other markets but we also were able to perfect our Remix’d Weddings craft under the new brand. This was also our first ever year with dedicated and trained employees.  Our moto, the official home of Remix’d Weddings was earned through several hours of practice, dedication to our craft and execution of our brand at our 300 plus events!

April

Prom!  Amp’d Entertainment shows we can Remix any event and for all ages!  Our Dueling DJ Set up with Overhead “Nightclub” Style Moving Heads, Bumping Sounds System and LED Light Show was sure to impress.  This was our debut of the Dueling DJ set up and it is now our standard option for teen events, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet 16s, School Events and more!

April would also be an amazing month as DJ Bigg H hosts special guest Cash Money, DJ Mannie Fresh. This Persian/American wedding had it all!  Authentic Persian cuisine with an American twist, Persian music sprinkled in with American dance classics, and an incredible mix of family and friends that partied well into the night!!!

June

Our recent membership with GaMPI landed us a sponsorship at the 2015 Phoenix Awards.  It was held at one our newest and favorite spots, American Spirt Works!  We have several events booked at the Stave Room inside American Spirit Works and it’s an impressive new spot in Atlanta!

The end of June marked that the year was half way over, so our team got together for an End of 2nd Quarter Party at one of our partner venues, Monday Night Brewing!  We tied one off and celebrated our team effort and a great start to the year!

June also saw a huge interest in the retail community.  Companies like Orange Theory Fitness, Versace, America’s Mart and InMotion hire Amp’d DJs to Remix the music experience in store.  In the case of Orange Theory Fitness, we upped the beats per minute to get their members in the Orange Zone!

2015 would also be the year we hosted our very first Showcase!  It was held on August 27th at one of preferred partner venues, the Glenn Hotel, Sky Lounge!  Several couples, interested prospects and industry friends came out as we showcased our DJ’s Remix Sets along with our unique and fun entertainment options!

We’re almost at 100 events for 2016 and we believe that Remix’d Weddings and Remix’d Events will be the new standard for hiring a professional and talented DJ!  We look to redefine what it means to be a wedding DJ and avoid anything boring and “traditional”.  We seek couples seeking not just the very best in entertainment but also wanting to match their style and creativity to their one big day.  We look to provide outstanding customer service once again as we partner with Atlanta’s top Vendors to become the area’s most highly recommended DJs.
Be on the lookout for new promo videos and new all star DJs to join our team!  We will have new and exciting DJ and Lighting packages to suit almost all needs and budgets!  We spent much of 2015 perfecting our craft so we look forward to serving you in even better ways in the coming months.
We look forward to Remixing Your Next Event in 2016!
