Our Founder

Adrian A. Quilling

Adrian A. Quilling

Hello! I am Adrian A. Quilling, founder of Ambient Entertainment, LLC, a mid-western DJ and emcee company. I got my start in the DJ business as early as my childhood. I love music, and I am known as a music aficionado. I take pride in discovering the newest hits even before the radio stations! It was this everlasting passion for music that prompted my first "gig".

While in high school, I was asked to DJ my neighbors’ wedding. I grabbed my boombox and jumped at the chance! I immediately fell in love with the idea of working with weddings. It’s amazing how much happiness I can bring to others’ lives through music. So my story continued from there, and I joined a big mass production DJ company in college to serve as a Master of Ceremonies for years. While I was with this DJ company, I honed and refined my Emcee and DJ abilities through years of back to back shows, and I learned how much I enjoy bringing my best each show. I am so grateful for the experience I built up with them, and for honing the skills needed for my passion. But every event, specifically weddings, are so unique, varied, and individual, that I now build relationships with my clients before their event takes place. With larger companies, you often never get to converse with your entertainer. I am working to fight against that trend by crafting a company that will be with you every step of the way. At Ambient Entertainment, we will always focus on quality of service over quantity of service. From my memories of each and every event, I have fallen more in love with this line of work, and I believe that it takes passion to inspire passion. I never want to be "the guy who DJ'd my wedding" to you. I want to be "Adrian, the man who helped give us the wedding of our dreams!" 

For all your event needs, Ambient Entertainment will be here. I plan to keep DJing for years to come, because you know what they say: "If you love what you do, then you'll never work a day in your life."

Hi! My name is Zach Sames & I am the General Manager of Ambient Entertainment. From a young age I have loved music of all types. In college my best friend worked for a large DJ company, and I loved hearing about his work. I interviewed with one of the large companies in town (which actually turned out the be the direct competitor of the company Adrian worked for,) and started the best career I could imagine! There is something magical about a wedding, and the energy from a packed dance floor is second to none! I worked for several years as a DJ and Master of Ceremonies for weddings and all kinds of events; I even got to meet celebrities while DJing nightclubs. I loved the work, but something kept nagging at me, it wasn’t personal. Often, I didn’t meet the couple I was DJ’ing for until I showed up at the event. I joined Ambient Entertainment because I wanted to work with clients on a more personal level. Instead of just showing up, I now get to build relationships and get to know who I work with and work for. I love working creatively with clients to bring their dreams to life! The night is yours, and I want it to be your version of perfect! I aim to not only be the guide to realizing your perfect evening, but also the friend who helps you through it! Let's make your dreams happen!
