What Our Brides Are Saying

We hired instant request for our wedding and they chose Justin W for our DJ. What a perfect fit!! We are incredibly happy with how our night went and how great Justin was! So many of our guests complimented us on our DJ as well. Will definitely be recommending him! 10/10

Just want to say thank you for all your help with the PACIM Ball. It was very successful and we all had a wonderful time. Eric was a very good choice for the DJ. Thank you for arranging him. He was accommodating and did a great job with the music. I would definitely recommend him again in the future. I would also highly recommend Instant Request for any future events.

Top Notch DJ!! The vendor themselves was amazing and easy to work with. Their online platform is easy to fill out and allows you to let them know exactly your requests. Our first meeting with our DJ Alex was great and had us super comfortable to know he understood our expectations. The day off, Alex knocked it out of the park. Our dance floor was going all night long to the very last song. Alex did an exceptional job and we would hire him and Instant Request again in a heart beat.

DJ Eric did a great job with our January wedding at the Depot. Throughout the whole process the company was responsive as was DJ Eric. They were organized, on time and kept everyone entertained. They did a great job with both the dance and ceremony. The DJ had our guests dancing all night and kept the dancefloor packed. I would highly recommend Instant Request and DJ Eric to anyone looking

Would highly recommend working with Instant Request, and particularly DJ Alex . It was incredibly smooth & easy working with Instant Request to book our dj for our wedding. We did not do the black tie service where we can request our own dj, and were assigned with Alex. He was everything we could’ve asked for and more in our wedding dj. He kept the crowd on the dance floor all night, and mixed some amazing tunes to keep our crowd engaged. I would absolutely recommend paying the small bit extra to select Alex via the black tie service. You will not regret it! Very experienced and fun to work with!

Instant Request was awesome to work with. Our DJ Jamal was incredible and we LOVED working with him. One of my most favorite parts of the night was looking over at him and he had a pair of our flashing glasses on – it was AWESOME! He checked in at appropriate times throughout the day to ensure we were on the same page for the upcoming songs, which was incredibly reassuring and appreciated that he wanted to make sure everything was perfect. We had two songs that were not on the tracker and it was an easy process getting them to him by using an Apple adaptor cord and/or just texting them to him. He even gave us a card at the end of the night thanking us which was such an awesome touch. One thing that would be nice is if the tracker stayed open until the day of – just a thought. Great experience with Jamal & Instant Request!

Instant request was fabulous to work with! I was really on the fence about having a DJ at our wedding and man am I glad we made the decision to move forward with them! Great customer service and attention to detail. Stephen was our DJ and what a great human! He had great energy and handled my many questions like a gem.

The group at instant request was a pleasure to work with from the moment we walked in the door. Mitch was awesome getting all the details setup, and Alex, our DJ the night of the wedding was amazing. He kept people out on the dance floor and was on the ball with all of our details and requests we had for him. He was also really good about coming and finding one of us to make sure we were ready for the next part of the reception. I highly recommend checking out instant request, I don’t think you’ll be sorry.

My husband and I used Instant Request DJ for our wedding in December 2022, and we could not have been happier with this choice! They were very responsive and easy to communicate with. Their software for music planning is wonderful, really easy to use and very thorough! We were paired with Auctavias as our DJ, and he was great! We had a call with him to go over our music choices and he delivered everything we wanted perfectly! He played all of the music we had on our must-play list, and did a great job of reading the room to play the right music to keep the party going! Highly recommend, thank you Instant Request and Auctavias!!!

Auctavias was the DJ assigned to my daughter’s quniceanera and he was awesome! We’d never worked with a DJ before and weren’t sure what to expect. He answered all of our questions, helped us understand everything, he stuck to the song list, was flexible to make changes as we needed. It was a great experience and we will definitely use Instant Request DJ again!!
