Peter Portales aka DJ P2

 DJ P2 profile 2
Born and raised in San Antonio, TX, Peter joins the Amp’d team with over twelve years of DJing experience under his belt!  After graduating from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2014 with a BFA in Sound Design and minor in Film, Peter brought his considerable talent to Atlanta.  Building on his background in Sound Design, Peter crafts eclectic and creative sets that often feature his own track edits, remixes, and mashups.  Throw in some formidable beat juggling and scratching skills and DJ P2 is tough to beat when it comes to entertaining a crowd and rocking a dance floor. 

Like all of the Amp’d DJs, Peter has a wide variety of music tastes and is completely confident spinning every genre or decade.  But growing up in Texas helped expand Peter’s music knowledge south of the border as he attended his fair share of quinceañeras, weddings, and other parties.   It was at these events that he developed an appreciation for all varieties of Spanish music allowing him to seamlessly incorporate a Latin flavor into his DJ sets when needed.

In his spare time, Peter enjoys creating original mashups, some of which you can hear below.  He also loves all things basketball (Go Spurs Go!).

Absolutely Amazing Amp’d Entertainment!

Amp’d Entertainment created a perfect wedding experience for us and our guests. We used DJ Peter Portales and he was perfect! We met with him twice leading up to the wedding to discuss details and I love their online portal so you can make changes and add any details they will need to know for the day (including timeline, names of people giving toasts, etc.) They did our music starting before the ceremony all the way to the end of the night. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to throw down at their wedding.”

AMPD Took Our Reception To The Next Level!  I can’t say enough about how totally pleased we were with AMPD Entertainment! Super responsive and easy to work with – Hollon and our DJ Peter stayed in constant contact with us through the entire planning process. Their website tool allowed us to create song lists for every part of our ceremony and reception – but what truly sets them apart from other wedding DJs, is that our DJ took our song selections and created his own unique mix that had perfect flow and balance that kept the energy going! Our dance floor was full all night and our guests are still talking about our reception two years later! I highly, highly recommend AMPD Entertainment!!!”

–Craig

“I believe you get what you pay for, and Peter with Amp’d Entertainment was AMAZING! From the very first phone call, Peter impressed us with his upbeat attitude and thoughtfulness. The planning process was a breeze with the Amp’d website and any question we had along the way was quickly answered. Peter provided a personalized consultation that was instrumental in assisting us with our timeline and song selection. The night of the wedding was absolutely perfect, and we owe a lot of that to Peter. Our venue was a bit unique and he did a wonderful job directing people to and from cocktail hour to dinner to cake cutting, etc. He did a fantastic job managing the crowd throughout the night. Lastly, the music and lights were incredible!!! We danced all night and never had an empty dance floor. So thankful for this amazing company and super awesome Peter!! You can’t go wrong choosing Amp’d Entertainment… our guests were so impressed that they are actually booking Amp’d Entertainment for their upcoming events.”

“Picking the entertainment for our wedding was one of the more difficult decisions we had to make. After a bunch of research, we decided on AMP’d Entertainment and couldn’t be happier with our choice. Peter handled everything for our wedding perfectly from the ceremony to the dance floor. Before our wedding we were worried if people would dance, but Peter had the floor packed! He was a great MC that handled everything in stride without being an overbearing presence.

We were very pleased with AMP’d Entertainment and would highly recommend them to others!”

–Zach

“Mr. Portales and the people of Amp’d provided an amazing experience. I got all the songs I dreamed of and was able to put in requests from all those close to me. I’ve received so much feedback from my guests what a great DJ we had. It was a truly unforgettable day and they provided the music to put it over the top!”

–Alona

“I had a wonderful experience with Amp’d entertainment and DJ P2. Peter was wonderful to work with – easy to get along with, quick to respond, and willing to indulge us on those “crazy” requests. DJ P2 made my wedding so special and fun. All of the guests comment on what an awesome DJ he was. I also truly appreciate him sharing the set from the wedding with us. It was so fun to listen to after the wedding and to workout to as well!”
