Black Tie Certified DJ Staff

DJ Anthony D

DJ Anthony D

One of the most requested at Instant Request, Anthony has been DJing, and emceeing at events since he was very young. He’s even saved another company’s DJ from a catastrophic equipment failure while attending a friend’s wedding. His natural charisma and beaming smile, combined with a strong knowledge of equipment and music makes him truly, Black Tie certified. When he’s not DJing, Anthony also works in Film/Video Production.

Anthony’s musical tastes cover the board, but more importantly, he works hard to provide your desired vibe, whether classy/formal, raging party, or anything in-between. “Young or grown, I WILL find out what gets your body in motion!”

 

DJ Anthony did our wedding ceremony and reception (announcing and music) and was AMAZING! He was talented, engaging, and fun! Everything went seamlessly and was the best investment of money on our wedding day 🙂 – Jennifer and Mitchell 10/14/17

 

I cant say enough positive things about DJ Anthony. he did everything we asked for and more. He read the crowd and knew exactly what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. I spoke with him privately a few days before my wedding to pull off a huge surprise for my bride and he executed PERFECTLY. I would give him more than five stars if i could. when he was packing up, we decided to double his tip because everyone loved him so much. We are still getting compliments for hiring him. Thank you Anthony for everything. You were a huge part in making our reception great! Not only all of this, but we were literally about to not even HAVE a DJ at our wedding. We went to two wedding fairs and thought everyone was just a stereotypical d-bag and they all fed us the same lines about how they’re better than the others guys and how they’re soooo unique. then we walked passed Anthony and he was just jamming at his booth, doing his own thing and asked how we were doing. That was all. So we approached him and got to talking to him and knew he was our guy. We went home that afternoon and booked Instant Request and requested Anthony the next day. Don’t let the other guys fool you with their bs sales pitch.                                                                                                – Cassi and Orion 10/13/17

 

From working in the wedding industry previously, I knew before I even got engaged who I wanted to DJ my wedding. Instant Request with DJ Anthony was the second vendor I booked after my wedding venue and I wouldn’t have changed anything for the world. The online planning tool was fantastic at keeping you organized and made sure no detail was forgotten. Anthony was always prompt in his responses prior to the wedding and his day of skills are second to none! I am a firm believer that a DJ can make or break your reception and Anthony did not disappoint! I always recommend him and Instant Request to all my friends and family. If you are in need of a DJ to keep the dance floor full all night, an upbeat, positive attitude and all around rock star DJ, Anthony is your man! – Kirsten and Matt 10/7/17

 

Instant Request was awesome! We had so much fun at my sister’s wedding with DJ Anthony D that we had to have him for our wedding too! Awesome dance music, great at reading the crowd and getting people on the dance floor. We also used him for our ceremony music and he did a great job! Highly recommend him and Instant Request as a whole! Thanks for helping make our day a great one!                                                                                                                                                   – Emily and Chris 10/6/17

 

We cannot express how incredibly grateful we are for DJing our wedding on September 29th. You were absolutely fantastic and we had so many compliments on how great you were. Thank you for making our special day perfect. We are forever grateful! We will definitely be recommending you! – Laura and Nick 9/29/17

 

Anthony was wonderful! We were so pleased with this service for our wedding.                                                                                                        – Grace and Marko 9/17/17

 

We had Anthony and he did an amazing job. He was very enthusiastic and kept the reception on track with everything we had planned to do. Also this company has a great online system to pick music for every possible event during your reception and even things I didn’t even think of, like games and fun line dances. It also allows you to mark songs/genres you absolutely DO NOT want played. They are very organized and I’m happy we went with them! – Michelle and Nick 9/3/17

 

What an incredible vendor, above and beyond. Anthony hosted our wedding and was the BEST. All of our guests couldn’t stop raving about how fun our dance floor was. He really hit it out of the park and we loved his mixes. Dancing never stopped and it was the best party we could of ever imagined. Would recommend this vendor over and over again!                                                                                    – Danielle and Kyle 9/2/17

 

I was attending a wedding fair and heard Anthony D. mixing, and I knew immediately I’ve found my wedding DJ! We met with Anthony about five weeks before the wedding to go over the order of events during the reception, the music playlist, and the kind of atmosphere and mood we wanted to exude. Anthony was professional, personable, attentive, and so easy to work with! He responded timely to emails and text messages. He was flexible with a last minute request to play a song earlier in the evening just for our two-year old flower girl. I honestly can’t say enough great things about Anthony! He is a phenomenal DJ! We loved him, and our guests all loved him! We still had guests on the dance floor after we’ve finished with the majority of the teardown and cleaning up for the night. My family and friends are already talking about whose wedding will be next so that we can hire him again!                                                                      – Sheng and Brady 8/12/17

 

What do people remember from your wedding day the food and the DJ! So getting a great DJ was important to us. We did our research and knew Instant Request was the DJ company for us. We did the Black Tie Package which is worth every penny. We got to meet with our DJ go through the wedding timeline with him and answer any questions. They give you a website so you are able to plan precisely every song for everything or you can leave it more open for the DJ to control. We got to pick our DJ and we picked ANTHONY D. He is the best! He was great at running the timeline of the reception. Great with accommodating a game into the clicking of the glasses. He played just the right music at the right time. He kept people on the dance floor ALL night. I have never been at a wedding that had as many people on the dance flood ALL night like our wedding. Everyone loved our DJ! We’ve gotten compliments ever since and have recommended him to everyone. If you want to have peace of mind on your wedding night, relax and enjoy the day you’ve been planning so hard for get Instant Request DJ onboard and ask for Anthony (although I know they have MANY great DJ’s) – Katie and Christopher 7/8/17

 

Thank you so much for being such an amazing MC, making the music which was so important to Miranda and I, Perfect. From the initial meeting at Starbucks, to the custom cocktail hour playlist, our wedding was amazinhg and the music was a big part of it.  Thank you! – Miranda and Andrew 7/1/17

 

Wow! I don’t have enough words to explain how amazing Anthony D. and Instant Request are! They were easy to work with and their online event manager was perfect! Anthony is hands down the best DJ ever!! Our first dance, FOB dance and MOG dance were not typical songs, and Anthony was so accommodating to make sure he had the correct versions. We wanted our grand entrance song to start at a specific point in the song and he made it happen. Our dance floor was packed the entire night, and he was actively DJing all night, not just a playlist. He incorporated requests perfectly, MC’d the evening so well and was flexible and accommodating all night. We have gotten so many compliments about how fun our wedding was and how amazing the music was. Seriously, the dance floor was packed until the last song, and so much fun! The best decision we made was choosing Instant Request and Anthony D! – Claire and Nick 6/10/17

 

Anthony was the DJ for our wedding dance on Saturday, 3/25/2017. He was awesome right from the start…..planning and then executing a very smooth and entertaining dance. Our guests continually asked us where we found the DJ and commented on how great the music was and how he kept the evening moving. Anthony was very easy to work with, very helpful, and obviously an experienced professional. We have nothing but good things to say about Instant Request and about Anthony. Awesome job!                                                                                                                                                                                  – Geri and John 3/25/17

 

We were very happy with Anthony and could not have asked for a better DJ. He kept the party going the entire night and we received so many compliments from our guests on what a great job he did. He ended the night with the Alabama fight song when he heard my husband and his relatives were from Alabama and huge football fans. It was the perfect way to end an amazing day! – Melissa and Brad 2/25/17

 

Anthony was absolutely amazing! He was great to work with and read the crowd very well!  Everyone at my wedding commented on how great he was! – Marlo and Mike 1/21/17

 

Absolutely! Anthony was amazing, he was was very helpful when we met with him one on one before the wedding and was able to walk us through how the evening was going to go. Everyone was dancing all night until the very end of the wedding and the energy was FANTASTIC! He was the best and will be recommending him to all my friends who are looking for a wedding DJ! Thank you so much Anthony!                                                                                    – Katie and Bogan 11/12/16

 

Anthony was amazing! The dance floor was packed the entire time, and that’s what we wanted!  Anthony rocked! He did his job, but was never to be the center to f attention.                                                                           – Kari and Matt 10/29/16

 

Anthony was AWESOME, there was not a single moment when there were not people on the dance floor, he created such a fun and inviting atmosphere and we had many people tell us during the night how much they enjoyed the music.  We needed a set up for our ceremony which was outside and we needed a 425 ft power cord to run from the building to the ceremony site and it was provided to us without a problem at all. Anthony set up and took it down as well which was wonderful.

The fact that Anthony was enjoying himself and really loves his job was such a blessing, he was involved and he wasn’t just there to play song after song, he read the crowd and had a great mix of all types of music from oldies, to country to rap. Every time I looked over at him he was dancing and smiling and I really think that added to our reception.  You get what you pay for and I believe that having Anthony/ Instant Request as a part of our wedding day was worth every penny. It was so comforting to know that I was working with professionals with many years of industry experience.  – Mel and Patrick 10/15/16

 

Anthony was the absolute BEST DJ! We first met Anthony at a family wedding and the dance floor was packed the entire night, so we knew we had to go with him for our own wedding as well. He was so great to work with leading up to the wedding and had all kinds of song suggestions when we needed it, especially for the ceremony. I knew I didn’t have to stress with him as our DJ because he is very organized and kept things on schedule. On our wedding night the dance floor was full all night long and everyone kept telling us how much fun they had dancing. I couldn’t be happier with our experience.                                                                     – Melissa and Ryan 9/24/16

 

Our DJ, Anthony, not only met our expectations but far exceeded it. We had, and are still getting, so many compliments on the DJ company and Anthony himself. I could not be more pleased with how our night turned out, he kept the crowd going until the very end and every one had such a good time. He was PERFECT!!   Instant Request was an all around great choice, the staff is friendly and very helpful, the event planner was a godsend for me, the price was very reasonable when comparing to other services and our DJ was the person who made our night memorable for everyone in attendance. I would recommend Instant Request to anyone in need of a DJ, I believe we even handed out a couple cards the night of our wedding 🙂 that is, in fact, how we got connected with instant request. In comparison with other companies you can’t beat the price with Instant Request. I really can’t say enough about your company. I truly feel the DJ is what makes your wedding night and Anthony did just that for us!! Thank you so much!!!

– Brittany and Jamie 9/9/16

 

Anthony D. was phenomenal!! He was fantastic to work with and super accommodating the night of. He is a great character to have behind the table and met all of our expectations.  Throughout the night and still to this day, we are receiving glowing feedback of Anthony’s talent and the fun everyone had! It is safe to say, he blew some minds that night with his transitions and flair. And of course kept the dance floor going all night long!  His Thank you note card at the end of the night was a nice added bonus/surprise.                                                                                                                                                          – Emily and Tyler 9/3/16

 

I wanted to take a moment to extend a heartfelt thank you to you for the DJ services you provided us on our wedding day. Your exceptional ability to remain flexible when the rain was causing grief, be professional and fun showing off your true passion for DJing, and to LIGHT UP A DANCE FLOOR cannot be emphasized more. You have a clear passion for the role and every one of our guests could see it. I heard from many guests that you were the best DJ they have ever had the pleasure of dancing with and many guests who said they have never seen a dance floor that full for that long before. Brian and I could not agree more with them and wanted to take a moment to show our appreciation for all that you did to make our wedding day so very special. We were so so happy!! Thanks again for all you guys’ help at Instant Request DJ. Our wedding venue owner at Maple Ridge Farm was actually present for most of the wedding reception and will be adding you guys to the top of her recommended vendors list. Thanks again.                                                                                                                                  – Heather and Brian 8/20/16

DJ Anthony was awesome. He did great, our photographers were even impressed with how many people were still on the dance floor when they left. He was perfect for our wedding.  You guys have it down to a science and everything we did was very easy because of how you have it set up.DJ Anthony was pretty awesome too.                                                                                                  – Julie and Brandon 8/13/16

 

We absolutely LOVED Anthony. Even though we only met him once prior to the wedding (through the Black Tie meeting), we felt as though he was a friend the day of our wedding. The best part is he listens to every single little detail! Truly! For example, we were struggling with a song that we wanted to walk into for our grand entrance. We were thinking maybe something in the EDM realm, but not as “party”. I had happened to mention to Anthony in passing that Kurt loves Frank Sinatra; not only did Anthony end up finding a Frank Sinatra remix for the entrance song that was PERFECT, but he played a Frank Sinatra song for our last dance of the night. It was really special to us as Kurt is not much of a dancer, but loves dancing to Frank. We had no idea he was going to do this, but we were really happy that he listened to those small details; it surprised us! And certainly meant a lot to us.  We also loved the online event planner.  I am a spreadsheet person, so to input every single detail in this planner was amazing. Additionally, there were no mishaps the day of or questions of when to do what event or play what song when! The event planner is a must.   We were very very pleased with the music and atmosphere of the night and we would 100% recommend Anthony and IR for any event. IR is like no other wedding DJ!! It’s funny; most people view a live band as the crème de la crème for music at a wedding reception, but there is no comparison when IR is your vendor. I would chose Anthony and IR to play for my event every single time over a live band.  We booked incredibly early to lock Anthony down for our wedding date, and we got a steal of a deal. With that said, even the regular price would have been a great value. We know other couples that have paid significantly more than IR’s prices, and it has been inferior quality. Great value!!

                                                                                                           – Amanda and Kurt 5/7/16

 

Anthony was awesome. The night could not have gone better for us; he read the crowd and played engaging music all night. We enjoyed the staff’s personality the most. Particularly Anthony, he was fantastic and all smiles, all the time.                                                       – Anna and Ryan 4/1/16

 

Everyone was great to work with The planning software was great.  It helped get us organized for working with other vendors, photographer, etc) and we found most of the songs and the ones we couldn’t were added for the event. Anthony Dubose played the perfect blend of all the types of music we were looking for, kept people on the dance floor all night long.  Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.  The sound was great.  Should have used the DJ stuff vs the venue sound system for the ceremony, would have worked out better.   I love the organization of Instant Request.  From the software to how prepared the DJ was on the day, with a schedule printed off and reminders of when we were aiming to do the various kinds of dances, etc. I would highly recommend Instant Request to other.  Many guests mentioned how great the DJ was                                                                                                           – Lara and Ben 4/30/16

 

 

Anthony exceeded our expectations and made the event so great!  Perfect fit for our style and met all our requests.  It was a great night. When putting together a wedding, things get stressful as there is a running checklist of thousands of things that need to be done and accounted for, Instant Request provided us a service and essentially did everything for us.  It wasn’t a hassle by any stretch of the imagination – it was a nice to not have anything to worry about.                                          – Laura and Jerik 3/26/16

 

Now that we’re back in the country and sorting out our lives as a married couple, we wanted to send you a huge THANK YOU for doing a fantastic job at our wedding on Feb 27! You read the crowd perfectly and had people dancing all night long, which was exactly what we requested. People were absolutely raving about you, and we feel incredibly lucky to have had your services on hand.

Thanks again, and we’ll be suggesting you to any of our friends getting married and looking for an amazing DJ!                                                                                                – Jesse and Lacey 2/27/16

 

Anthony was fabulous!! We gave him a lot of control with the music he played and he kept the guests on the dance floor! We have heard great feedback about him since the wedding from our guests. He also did a wonderful job helping Steve out with his surprise song he sang to me at the reception. I loved that I knew Steve, my parents and I would not have to worry about anything. Anthony was calm, experienced and trusted. He took the appropriate time during his in-person meeting with Steve and me to ask any information he may need for the day of. We knew we were in good hands and that was a very comforting feeling! Your DJ can make or break your wedding. I have had two friends already booked with you after we booked at the end of Summer! Coming from the wedding industry, we knew you were the best and will continue to spread the word about our experience with you. We appreciated all of Anthony’s hard work and time! We had an incredible day and were so happy to have Instant Request as part of it!
                                                                                                          – Aubrie and Steve 2/20/16

 

Thank you so much for everything the night of our reception.  Anthony picked out some great music to keep the party alive.  We couldn’t have asked for a better night of music.  Everyone had an amazing night.                                                                                                                                      – Alicia and Chris 12/19/15

 

Anthony was amazing!! I received so many compliments on the great music that was played…I gave Anthony somewhat of a direction but not much and he took it from there and hit it out of the park! He was very nice and outgoing. GIVE THAT MAN A RAISE! Really……he needs a big one!                                                                                                                                                                       – Abby and Paul 10/30/15

 

The office staff was wonderful, always prompt with sending emails and adding things last minute when we needed it..  We found the event planner VERY helpful.  Great tool to have for song suggestions and loved how it walked you through the process and kept you on track. .  Anthony D was absolutely perfect for us.  We were beyond happy with his professionalism, fun upbeat personality, punctuality, organization, and great music selection/skills!  He was always quick to reply to any questions/concerns I had and took extra time on the phone with me to walk through our entire day to make sure everything was perfect.  Not once did I ever see him not smiling!  We had complete trust in him and he delivered! The sound and lighting were great.  Even outdoors with the wind blowing it was easy to hear the music. .  It’s difficult to pick my favorite thing about Instant Request.  From the quick and courteous emails from the front office, the helpful online event planner to the best DJ and great quality sound, as a whole the Instant Request team was seamless and a pleasure to work with.  The only thing I didn’t care for was that the day and night ended so quick!   I will aboslutel recommend Instant Request to others.  I already have 3 friends/family weddings in 2016 and will be giving them your information. THANK YOU again Shawn, Matt, Anthony D and everyone else at Instant Request for providing a great quality service for the biggest and best day of our lives!                                                                             – Missy and Brian 10/16/15
