DJ Eric M

DJ Eric M

Eric was born and raised right here in the Twin Cities. He has been a local radio DJ for 14 years working for 93x and KQRS. His radio work led him to start helping friends out with weddings, and then his love of live Djing took off.

Eric’s journey with music began at an early age when he began playing the guitar. Eric still plays in a successful band whose songs have been featured on blockbuster movie soundtracks.

We worked with DJ Eric Malmberg for our wedding in February, 2018. Eric reviewed our online planner and scheduled a time to video chat with us a few weeks before the ceremony. He had great advice and tips for making our reception go as smoothly as possible. On the day of, Eric arrived early to set up and everything was taken care of. The dance floor was literally packed all night. Thanks, Eric!                                                                                        – Kayla and Tony 2/17/18

We had Eric M (Black Tie DJ) perform the DJ of our wedding on NYE. He was excellent. He has been DJ’ing for like 10+ years, and could read the crowd very well. We requested that he play the anniversary song for all the married couples. He did. We had a Google Hangout (video chat) before our wedding and discussed overall flow and discussed our wedding playlist profile that Instant Request has you make that has EVERY DETAIL embedded into. Overall, Eric was amazing. Music makes the wedding fun. Our dance floor was packed. Eric was worth way more than the amount that instant request charges (I think we paid $1,050 for him, but his professionalism/demeanor/experience was worth $1,500). Would recommend Eric M to anyone who wants a DJ they can trust won’t play a “Dance Floor Killer” song as Eric described it. Super funny guy! Thanks again Eric! – Erin and Chris 12/31/16


Eric was a great fit for us; he was excellent at reading our subtle cues on the day of before even meeting us (like when the first dance should end); he came and introduced himself; followed the planner perfectly; was friendly and easy to get along; very professional and well-organized during our phone meeting prior to wedding.  – Jennifer and Michael 12/3/16


Eric exceeded our expectations. His professional yet laid back/relax style was perfect for our wedding. He was great at speaking when we needed him to and prepping the guests for dinner, dancing and everything between. He had a great playlist for the wedding and kept people on the dance floor all night! I’d highly recommend him to others. – Katie and Adam 10/22/16


After lots of consideration, we chose Instant Request for our wedding on June 4, 2016. I love music, but this was the most important part to my husband. We upgraded to the Black Tie DJ and chose DJ Eric M, who also brought a trainee along with him…. I think people throught we were extra fancy because it looked like we had 2 DJs! We had our 1:1 with Eric and went through everything we expected for the ceremony and reception. He very professional and accommodated all of our requests! He made announcements as we needed and was a lot of fun with the music and guests. Everyone was out dancing and having a great time…we had people comment about how they’ve never seen so many people on the dance floor at a wedding! I definitely recommend Instant Request, ask for Eric M!                                                                                                            – Pamela and Jared 6/4/16


We loved our DJ and are still getting compliments about him. He was a great fit for our style.  Eric was very accommodating and great at his job                                    – Jennifer and Brian 8/22/15
