Hailing from Dallas, Texas, Deitrich Armstrong has been an incredible addition to the Amp’d staff. Also known as DJ General Mealz, Deitrich has made Atlanta the new home for his furious turntable skills and creative mixing. You won’t find many DJs as equally comfortable headlining festivals, rocking out a club, or holding down a wedding dance floor. If you ever find yourself at SXSW, you may have already heard him! But, fortunately for us, you no longer have to travel to Austin to hear Deitrich in the mix. Contact us today to see how Deitrich can bring his turntable magic to your next event!

“Amp’d Entertainment and specifically, DJ Deitrich Armstrong were awesome! Music is such a critical element to any celebration or party and working with Amp’d and Deitrich made it so easy. From the beginning, they were able to help me stay on-budget and still give me all the elements from lighting to music for a great night. The planning tools are incredible and we had so much fun as a couple leading up to the wedding playing songs and making our requests. Deitrich was incredibly professional and sincere – he always made our calls so easy and he was super thorough regarding the timeline and requests.
On day of, Deitrich truly went above and beyond. I didn’t spend a ton of time micro-managing his every move and he was able to anticipate needs and he took it upon himself to help coordinate details I didn’t think of.
From the moment guests started gathering at the venue, he helped set the tone for the night. People were coming up to me and asking about the playlist and telling me the music was awesome. Once we officially opened the dance floor for the fun part, I literally never left it. Our guests had SO MUCH FUN. Deitrich was great about mixing up the music and moving on to songs he could tell the guests were responding to. There was literally never a dull moment. He hit on every emotion and it felt like I was connected to every guest through the music. For the last song, every guest was arm and arm with us dancing in the middle and me in tears. It truly felt like a scene from a movie. When the last song was announced, our guests literally cried out, no! We could have danced for several more hours because of his talents and the energy and emotion he helped provide. I am so grateful to Deitrich and the whole team at Amp’d!”

“For our wedding on March 10, 2018, we had the wonderful pleasure to have Deitrich for our DJ. He was such a great person to work with and so easy to talk to and get in touch with. The music was absolutely perfect and everyone was talking about how awesome he was and the mix that he did for us. He can definitely get a crowd going and keep them engaged…the whole time! The first thing that my husband said the morning after the wedding was…”The DJ played some great music. He was s0 awesome!” He definitely knows what he is doing and is flippin’ amazing at what he does. I told him that if we ever needed music for anything that there would be no hesitation on who we would use. I definitely recommend Amp’d Entertainment for all music needs (but particularly Deitrich..because I’m biased :))”
“My husband and I first met Deitrich about 9 months before our wedding when he was playing a set at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. My mom was in town and we took her to see the annual Garden Lights show. We heard some great music playing by one of the bars so we stopped to have a drink. We ended up staying for awhile because the music was so awesome, a perfect mix between old and new songs that were all upbeat and had everyone around us dancing, including my mom. After some time, my mom suggested we get the DJ’s information to consider for our wedding. We were still early on in the planning process at this point, but Amp’d Entertainment was a company that had been highly recommended to us by some of our other vendors. Once we got the DJ’s (Deitrich’s) card, we saw that he was from Amp’d and we knew our search was over! We hired Deitrich just a few weeks later and it was one of the best decisions we could have made for our wedding!!
Deitrich himself is very organized and professional and made sure he knew the types of music we wanted to hear and what kind of atmosphere we wanted for our reception. When you work with Amp’d, you also receive access to a client portal where you can update your wedding song choices (i.e. first dance song, etc.) which was very convenient and easy to use. Deitrich stayed involved in our planning process and worked wonderfully with our day-of coordinator on the timeline for our wedding to make sure everything went perfectly. On the day of our actual wedding, Deitrich arrived early to set up and and was ready for all of his cues throughout the reception. When it came time to open the dance floor, Deitrich got everyone up and dancing right away and the dance floor never cleared the entire night!! Seriously. I wasn’t sure what to expect since our guest list included such a wide range of ages, but EVERYONE danced all night long and had such an amazing time. The song choices were perfectly selected and catered to the “vibe” of the crowd. I had multiple guests come up to me and compliment the music choices and tell us how awesome our DJ was! We couldn’t agree more. Our reception was a blast, all thanks to Deitrich. If you want a truly memorable event, we cannot recommend Deitrich and Amp’d Entertainment enough for your wedding!! ”
“Amp’d + Deitrich = Best. Wedding. Ever! We decided to have a DJ about 6 months before our October wedding and Brian was so accommodating, even after I ghosted him for a little while as we were looking around. He recommended Deitrich when we said we were ready to book and WOW! Deitrich had two meetings with us (one in person a few months out and one a week out to go over timeline and song choices) and each time, we felt like he listened to us and made sure he got everything down perfectly so there were no questions. On the day of, the timeline was seamless and he had a group on the dance floor all night including this bride. The music selection was varied and he knows how to read a crowd. We even wound up having to cut the night short since a lot of our guests had a long drive home and it was all coordinated quickly and smoothly. I even had a surprise track to walk down the aisle to and while my husband and I were on the phone with Deitrich, he was reading ahead and kept it hush hush so as not to ruin it. You will NOT be disappointed using Amp’d as your vendor and you will have the best night ever with Deitrich as your DJ.”
“I can’t even begin to say how awesome Dieterich was! He was so helpful, fun and flexible with us! My husband and I went in not really knowing what songs we wanted so Dieterich took over and pulled from experience and made the best wedding playlist ever!! He even played the hot dog song from Mickey Mouse for my 2 year old niece who loves that song! Best DJ EVER!! Definitely will recommend and use again if needed for other events!!! Thank you so much For making my day perfect!!”
“2 days before our wedding, our original DJ was admitted to the hospital for emergency surgery. We frantically called quite a few different companies that came highly recommended from a wedding coordinator friend and Amp’d was available on such short notice, worked within our budget, and made a very stressful situation into a pleasant one with a seamless transition. Deitrich (our DJ) was absolutely fabulous. Always available by email, text and call. He answered every question we had and gave great suggestions that were SO appreciated. Because of the time crunch, we had to do our first and final run through of all music choices over the phone and Deitrich made this run so smoothly. We went over everything song by song once, then he read it back to me twice to make sure everything was exactly how it needed to be. He had no problems finding the songs we wanted to use on such short notice. The day of the wedding, he had everything ready early and was phenomenal with transitions between the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception. He kept the reception light and fun during dances, toasts and cake cutting. Everyone had the time of their lives and we kept hearing all night “oh my gosh, I love this song.” Deitrich is absolutely amazing. We can’t wait to use him again soon! We HIGHLY recommend Amp’d to anyone who needs an awesome DJ and fun party!”
“Deitrich of Amp’d Entertainment was phenomenal! Everyone commented on how nice he was and he was so flexible with the changes that came the day of! Amp’d Entertainment was so accommodating and easy to work with and their online portal makes planning super easy!”
Our DJ, Deitrich Armstrong, could not have been better! He helped make our wedding very fun for us and our guests! I will definitely use him at my next wedding. 😛
