  • AMS was the only failure of our wedding. I found that the over promised and under delivered. We booked on Labor day a full year before our wedding.We hesitated to use a DJ because we really didn't want to hear a loud DJ talking during our wedding and we wanted to avoid overplayed songs. Tad the owner promised a personalized and classy event. We were sold. After spending HOURS selecting songs and filling out their questionnaire, we received a call from a DJ who lived in Fresno and would be driving in for our wedding. When we asked why we were being given a out of town DJ, we were told that there other DJs were busy. When we complained they gave us a new DJ who turned out to be TERRIBLE/ He acted as an obnoxious MC (when we asked not to have one) and played songs from our Do Not Play list rather than the songs we had carefully selected. On top of all this they booked us a latin spring trio when we SPECIFICALLY asked for roaming mariachi's. I am a local and dreamed of a Santa Bar... Read more

  • I was AMAZED with AMS! First off they were flexible and worked with my needs. They were responsive and made trips out to my venue to assess for lighting. The DJ made the party, all night and weeks after just compliment after compliment on how beautiful the lighting was and how fun the dancing was. The DJ literally had everyone on the dance floor! He worked with what I wanted and met ALL my needs! I have been to my share of weddings, and two now, including my own where AMS provided the DJ services and it is the most fun I have had! Alex was my DJ and he is friendly, professional, and was a highlight of my wedding! If you don't have there service your wedding and experience will miss out! SO SATISFIED!!

  • AMS was amazing to work with. They took a lot of time to make sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted. We spoke to multiple people in the office and they were all helpful and wonderful to deal with. Saul was an amazing DJ and MC for our special day. The photobooth was a hit with our guests, we loved the fact we could put our custom logo on the photos.

  • AMS did an amazing job organizing our DJ, lighting, and photobooth needs. They are incredibly thorough, constantly available (including the owner of the company), and completely professional. They kept our guests dancing for over 5 hours! Awesome all around. A big thanks to Tad and Saul.

  • AMS is great at figuring out what you want. My now husband and I knew we wanted a band, had a budget, and knew what we wanted the band to play and we could not figure out how to go about making that happen. I went to AMS and they set us up right away and found the perfect band for us. They are super professional and on the day of the wedding made sure that everything went smoothly. AMS is really the place to go if you are looking for live music.

  • Tony with AMS was AMAZING!!!! The team at AMS is very professional and organized. Tony had the dance floor packed all night long!!! I would stronglly recommed them. They took the time to talk with us a few differnt times while we were planning our wedding to get to know us and our style. They played all of the songs we wanted and then some!!! We also booked the Photo Booth through AMS as well. It was a hit! There was a line to get into the photo booth all night long. The props were a ton of fun!!! Thanks AMS!!!!

  • Traveling from out of the area, my wife and I were extremely nervous about choosing vendors. Music is a huge priority for us and the DJ can make or break the event. Sean was the consummate professional from the day we walked into his office. He worked with our style, priorities and spent time getting to know us so that he could help create the perfect event. We loved the high-tech website where we could listen to examples online and pick our favorites on the fly. Sean and AMS have connections to other add-ons such as lighting, furniture and music for the ceremony. He was able to pull some strings and get a baby grand piano for the reception. The day of the ceremony, Sean took the reigns of the schedule and was in constant communication with my wife and I, and flexed to cover some of the inevitable snafus. I couldn't recommend Sean and his team more. "Thanks for making our reception unforgettable, Sean!" - Joel & Erin

  • AMS takes the time to train all of their DJ's, they're very professional, no awkward yappage, able to respond to your needs, and most of all, the level of their interaction with your crowd is ultimately up to you. We chose Tony Park as our DJ and he fully executed our entire song list with ease! Thank you so very much Tony. Unfortunately, we don't remember the name of our guitarist... what a great sport to be playing in the rain! It only sprinkled and he did have some shelter but it was also cold outside. His music added to the overall ambiance of our ceremony. Thank you kindly!

  • Sean at AMS entertainment paired my now husband and I with one of his wonderful DJ's that fit our personality and our wedding day mood. They play great songs and keep the day running smoothly. We really enjoyed having AMS Entertainment DJ our wedding day! They made it very special.

  • We had our wedding at Elings Park in Santa Barbara. Because this is a public out door venue near homes there are certain sound regulations that you have to comply with. Elings park required that you comply with the rules provided by AMS. Even though we had our own DJ we still had to work with TAd from AMS- because of this we decided to have them also provide our lighting and photo booth- I wish we hadn't. Tad was late to our initial appointment and in the weeks leading up to my wedding he was MIA. I sent him multiple emails that went unanswered. I had to reach out to his assistant to get the answers to my questions. The only good part about working with them was that the photo booth attendant, Haley, was super nice and did a great job.

    I must admit that I (Tad) was out of town prior to this wedding and behind on emails during a particularly busy part of the season. I was not as responsive as I expect from myself or as the bride deserved. Fortunately, we have an office staff that stepped in and answered all of her questions – which is why we have a full-time team to help. In my follow up after the wedding, the bride told me the products she ordered, which included area wash, string lighting and the photo booth were exactly as she requested and was pleased. Unfortunately, my slow response time prior to her wedding when the stress is highest had a very negative effect on her overall impression – which is both disappointing and rare for us.

  • We had an awful experience with AMS--I'm still shocked by their lack of professionalism. Leading up to the time that we first gave AMS our deposit, we’d talked on the phone with Tad Clark, who seemed very professional and knowledgeable and eager to make us happy. However, once we’d sent in the deposit, we were informed by another employee, Saul, that our DJ would be Andrew. We looked on the AMS website to get some information, as we’d been told that each DJ was strategically selected to be the best fit for each customer’s event. While there were a number of DJs on the site that had full bios, clearly outlining his or her experience level, capabilities and style, this is what was all that was on the site for Andrew: Andrew's wide range of experiences and amazing service attitude make him a great fit for any party. He is flexible and creative in all areas from guest interactions to music selection. Andrew is a recent graduate of UCSB and has worked at many service focuse... Read more

    While I am not going to attempt to dispute this review point by point, I will give a brief reply. The client booked our services LESS THAN ONE MONTH PRIOR TO HER WEDDING – leaving us few options. It quickly became obvious to me that her expectations were very challenging and I did my best to suggest alternatives to get her desired impact. I did offer (not threaten) to return her deposit so she could find someone that could satisfy her requests but since she had booked so late, she got upset saying she only had 2 weeks. (I should have insisted but was afraid I’d get a bad review – at this point, I was in a no win position) When she denied my offer, we did the best we could to meet her requests and obviously didn’t do so. This is one of the very rare couples I should have turned away right from the start. Helpful Hint to wedding clients: If you have a heartfelt message you would like conveyed during a portion of your reception, it will have a significantly greater impact if it comes directly from you. Regardless of how proficient the MC, messages coming from your heart, even if imperfectly delivered would mean so much more than having your MC read a script regardless of how well written.

  • Overall my experience with AMS was mixed, but in the end would not recommend their services because I feel it is not worth it. When we met in the office, we were convinced that AMS provided "the best" and "most professional" service, saying that the DJ is more "prepared" that other DJs. Unfortunately after our experience I would not say this is true. I spent time organizing our wedding on the online planner, with the administrator, and with our DJ. We spoke many times through email as well. We even purchased and used our own songs to send to the DJl to further our organization with our song list. I felt that we were well prepared and proactive, I had even asked the DJl before the wedding if the songs were set and if we were ready to go. He assured me he was prepared. AND THEN... Four days before the wedding, he wanted to make sure we had the right set up for him, something you think would have been mentioned before. Luckily my rentals coordinator was professional and had t... Read more

  • AMS was very professional and their worked with me over phone and email, since I was planning my wedding from out of state. AMS has an extensive online DJ planner which allowed my fiance and I to work together to select the types of music that we wanted/didn't want, what feel we wanted, how participatory the DJ should be, order of events, etc. Having done the online planner, when I was assigned a DJ and we had a phone consultation, we were able to spend most of the time going over details and vision and specifics. The staff and our DJ gave us great recommendations and suggestions based on their experiences and we appreciated their advice. However, they also made it very clear that it was our wedding and they were here to help make our vision come into being. Our DJ did a great job MC-ing. He kept events moving, worked with us in spur of the moment change of plans, to initiative to communicate with our other vendors, and most importantly, he took our requests for music styles an...

  • I had ALOT of trouble getting their guitarist, Chris J., to contact me. I tried multiple times to contact him & offered many differnet contact solutions to try and get a response. It took over a month before I could get the ceremony music finalized and it was an extremely frustrating process. Definitely an unnecessary stress before the wedding.
