DJ Eric D

Eric started DJing in college over 10 years ago. He is continually pushing to improve upon everything from his music knowledge, to DJ techniques and emceeing. Eric’s big smile, professional demeanor, and natural aptitude for DJing have made him a valuable addition to the Instant Request team. Eric is one of Instant Request most veteran DJs.

 Eric was fantastic. He was flexible and read the crowd so well. There was not a moment that the dance floor was empty. Great to work with and very kind.                            – Bridget and AJ @ Bearpath Golf and Country Club

We paid the little extra for the “black tie” package, meaning we got to pick and meet with our DJ before hand. We picked Eric Darling. We meet with him a few weeks before and went over the day. The helpful thing was the online planner which allowed you to think of all the details before the meeting. The day of the wedding Eric was PERFECT! He was very professional. He kept in touch with us throughout the evening to coordinate the “events” cake cutting, father/daughter dance, garter toss, ect. The music was amazing and perfect fit. A DJ really can make or break your wedding and he definitely made the evening. Our dance floor was packed until the very end.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     – Kailey and Stephen @ Scandia Creamery


Everyone we worked with was very friendly. Everything was so easy – from booking to payments.  Eric was AWESOME! We had so many compliments at the end of the night. We could not have asked for a better DJ. He was on top of everything and played great music. He had everyone dancing from the start of the night to the end. He put up with a lot of our crazy guests and their random requests. I would recommend him to EVERYONE! The pricing was the best value that we could find in the cities. Everything was so great. We loved working with Instant Request and Eric.                                                                                                       – Sarah and Taylor @ Lowertown Event Center


We loved the event planner.  It was simplistic and easy to navigate. It was great to get to put in our own music requests. Eric was absolutely fantastic.  Before the wedding he was very insightful and friendly.  During the wedding he was very approachable, he was easy going.  Our guests had a blast at the dance due to him!  We LOVED working with him. He kept the sound at a great noise level so that we could still have conversations with family and enjoy the dance. A friend recommended your services to us and I would recommend to anyone getting married.                                                                                                                                          – Elizabeth and Joe @ McNamara Alumni Center


We got paired up with Eric who was an awesome DJ that took care of us very well. I really appreciated that he was very accommodating of some scheduling change-ups we had for the entrance and greetings. He played a nice blend of music from his selection as well as songs we requested on the Online Planner (including all but a few of the “Must-plays”, which we were fine with). Also, we ordered DJ uplighting and ceiling texture lighting. They were a bit expensive, but in the end, the purchase was worth it for adding that “WOW” factor to the room and to get people in the right mood. The night was fun and festive thanks to Eric and Instant Request. These guys are definitely the go-to for a wedding DJ that will get your night done right!                                                                                                  – Emily and Hieu @ Lafayette Club
