“We absolutely loved John as our DJ! He was very communicative and was available for all the random questions we had! He made sure our sound the whole night was on point–vows, to speeches, and of course the music were all pulled off wonderfully. I was worried about the sound since our venue was quite large, but JC pulled everything off expertly. The music itself was exactly what we wanted–we were sad when the party had to end!
I wholeheartedly recommend AMP’D and John especially. Hire them!!”

“JC from amp’d was an amazing DJ! He was a good MC that kept the night rolling, and he was very attentive to what we wanted and our style of reception. I couldn’t recommend him more!”
“John Carlton was our DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception. He was professional throughout the whole process and I would recommend him to any bride. Leading up to the event he was easy to contact whenever I had questions and was available to recommend songs or make edits along the way. During the reception he got everyone dancing from the flower girl to my grandparents. He really made the night special and fun for us and all of our guests. He was never cheesy but was always on hand to MC and make announcements as need. My husband and I have already recommended him to a few other engaged friends. You are in great hands with John Carlton and Amp’d Entertainment”
“John did a wonderful job!!! Not only did I not provide much for him to go on, he pulled off everything I could of asked for and more!!!!!”
“I used Amp’d Atlanta’s DJ, John “JC” Carlton, for my wedding May 04, 2013, at Indian Hills Country Club in Atlanta, GA, and I could not have been more pleased with their services.
The entire experience with Amp’d Atlanta was seamless. They have a great understanding of what a bride (and groom, and anyone in need of DJ services) needs, and wants for her wedding. The website is such a great tool, it proved useful while planning the songs to play at the garter, bouquet toss, first dances, etc.
Planning the toasts, dances, etc was a breeze with the website and John’s consistent communication.
John was in contact with me from the moment I hired them, until after the wedding, to ensure we were on the same page about everything. I never went longer than a week or so without an email or call from John to touch base, this was greatly appreciated! Several details of the wedding would have gotten lost in the mix if John was not on top of everything!
My wedding was supposed to be outside, and unfortunately it rained, so everything had to be switched to indoors at the last minute. John ensured everything from the ceremony to cocktail hour to the bridal party entrance flowed perfectly!
John clearly loves what he does, and was always upbeat and smiling. He brought an awesome energy to the evening, and was truly a pleasure to have hosting my wedding. He had the ENTIRE room on the dance floor for more than a few songs, this was one of my favorite parts of the wedding.
John guaranteed the evening was devoid of any awkward silences or uncomfortable moments.
lAnyone in need of DJ services will not be disappointed with Amp’d Atlanta and if you want the best DJ Atlanta has to offer, I urge you to choose John “JC” Carlton.”
“We had the honor of having John be the DJ for our wedding! We were the first wedding at Ashton Gardens in Atlanta, Georgia! For a new venue, John made sure that he was there well before the time he even needed to be, to make sure that everything ran smoothly! The ceremony music was played at the perfect times and he made such lovely transitions! For the reception; everyone complimented on how great our music was! John was an amazing announcer, super fun, energetic and very easy to work with! He played all of the songs that we had requested be played and even incorporated great ideas to keep the party going!
“We were so happy that we went with Amp’d Atlanta! You will not regret choosing them for your event, especially your wedding!!”
“I’m so happy we decided to hire Amp’d Atlanta for their DJ services and lighting at our wedding. The lighting was so fabulous and really set the party sence, we both loved it. JC is the DJ we hired and we can’t say this enough, JC was AMAZING!!! JC did a fantastic job making sense and flow of all the music we picked for each of our playlists, which is exactly what I hoped he would do for us. We had so many different generes and so many songs picked but he knew exactly what to do with it. JC was also very intune with our guests, what songs got them pumped and dancing so that the dance floor was packed the whole night. JC was so much fun to work with, we loved his personality and attention to detail. We would totally hire JC again. Thank you Amp’d for providing us with such a wonderful DJ and Thank you JC for making our special day so much fun……YOU ROCK!”
“Absolutely wonderful! We had a fantastic wedding experience and JC was a big part of making our day so special. His music selection was spot-on, with a good mix that kept all of the guests, regardless of age, engaged and having fun. Also, he did a nice job of taking us through the requisite announcements, speeches, etc. Highest recommendation!”
