Awesome Events Create Awesome Memories.
Ben DJs Your Wedding
Ampersand Events is owned by one of the nation's top special event DJs - Ben Penman. He has been DJing since 1998 and knows how to get your wedding guests dancing.
Ceiling Pattern Projection
We love being able to highlight the unique architectural aspects of your venue. We used lighting to emphasize the amazing beam structure of the ceiling. It created and one-of-a-kind, intimate feeling.
Ben DJs Live
Here's Ben DJing for an event at Children's Hospital of Orange County. CHOC uses Ampersand Events for a majority of their events throughout the year and returns to us for all their special event production needs.
Dancing, Even in the Daylight
We love to get your guests dancing, even when it isn't dark. Our fantastic selection of music spans from the 1920's all the way to the top hits of today!
Add some dramatic looks to your outdoor event with Uplighting on trees, tall shrubs, or walls. Our RGBA LED light fixtures can produce a huge range of color and operate at low enough temperatures that they wont burn your plants or guests.
We aren't staring into a laptop all night, which means your guests can more easily make requests. No laptop means no "Crashes" and means we aren't checking out facebook, when we should be paying attention to your musical needs.
Washes of Colored Light
We offer full event lighting, not just dance lighting. A majority of our lighting equipment features the super "green" LED technology that has revolutionized the way we use lighting. Our large lighting inventory is at your disposal, and is available whether we are your DJ, or only providing lighting.
Ricardo and Maria's First Dance
We are so happy to have been involved in the marriage of these two. This is their first dance as a married couple and as you can see, they are dancing on a custom monogram projection we created for them. It was a perfect day and the evening ended with a Grand Exit through all their friends and family holding sparklers as they danced away into the evening.
This is our super awesome DJ setup. It has all the bells and whistles that allow us to mix up a great variety of music and keep the dance floor packed. Also, there is no laptop or computer screen stuck in front of our face, which makes us more approachable for your guests to make requests.
