DJ Nate A2

Nate has been DJing for over a decade, and is now a full-time operations manager at Instant Request. He is, without question, the most requested and most highly reviewed DJ in the Twin Cities. From DJing Justin Morneau’s wedding, to his multiple club DJ residencies, Nate has a history of providing the highest quality DJ service in the Twin Cities. When he’s not working in the Instant Request office, he still finds some time to DJ weddings, but also enjoys traveling, going to concerts, working on his home with his wife, and playing sports.

Nate’s years of DJing have made him well versed in every genre, and his ability to read a crowd and adapt is second to none.

Have you ever seen a more packed and amazing dance floor?! Without you the wedding would have been no where near as amazing. You did such an amazing job making my entrance dramatic as all hell and the timing with everything was absolutely perfect. My personal favorite moment was dancing on a chair with the headset on. LEGENDARY. Again, I seriously can’t thank you enough. You made our night everything I had ever dreamed of and you really did take care of us:) YOU ARE THE BEST! – Kate and Andrew 9/29/17


Nate was our DJ and we couldn’t be happier. He kept the dance floor rocking the whole night. Young and old, everyone commented on how much fun they had at the wedding. He didn’t even flinch when we threw him a last second curve-ball and asked him to play a traditional Lebanese dance. The whole experience was awesome and I would highly recommend Nate and Instant Request to anyone ! Thanks again, Nate!

100% rating for our experience.  Can’t imagine having a better experience than having Instant Request run our entertainment at our reception!  The staff we worked with made everything very easy. The event planner was fun and we were able to slot music for every stage of the day before even meeting with our DJ. We had the best experience with our DJ.  The guests were commenting on how good the music and energy was throughout the night and even a week later!  He kept everyone on the dancefloor. There were no sound issues and lighting was elegant (champagne) for dinner and turned fun/party themed (violet) when the dance party started.  Nate clearly had a ton of experience and knew how to read the room to get all guests on the dance floor early and keep them there all night.  Even after our grand exit our guests went straight back to keep the party going!  That is the sign of a great DJ! We have already recommended Instant Request to some friends getting married next year! It was a great value!  Honestly some of the best money we spent on the wedding!                                         – Samantha and John 10/8/16


Nate is simply the best DJ there is. We met with Nate a couple of weeks before the wedding and talked to him about what we wanted and didn’t want. He was fun, professional, and really listened to what we had to say. On the day of the wedding, he arrived on time and prepared. And once the music started the dance floor was full the entire night! It was really important to me that all of our guests could get excited about the music and Nate made sure that happened. We had little kids, teenagers, and older people on the dance floor. So many guests commented on how it was so nice that we had a range of music! If you want a DJ that keeps guests on the dance floor, you must book Nate! – Laura and Tim 8/20/16


Thank you so much for being a part of our speciall day! Karley and I really appreciated that! You were quite the hit (as advertised) with everyone there! I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and thank you again! Hope to see you again somewhere along our journey! All the Best to you                                                                                                                                                                                            – Brock and Karley 7/30/16


Our DJ Nate was amazing. Best DJ and the dancing went all night. We had a big group that was still dancing to the end and could have gone for hours longer. Nate was amazing! We also used Instant request for our lighting and floor monogram which was beautiful. The only thing that was frustrating at times was working with so many people in communication and planning. Once Nate took over everything was great. – Shannon and Mason 7/23/16


Nate was very efficient, very professional and so very friendly and easy to work with. Nate was WONDERFUL. He was fabulous! We didn’t have the typical American reception as there were a lot of toasts and even an impromptu person singing a song. Nate accommodated everyone and kept the reception flowing and happy. He was an excellent … “choreographer” of the evening! He definitely “fit our style”. We have another daughter who, although she isn’t dating anyone at the moment, will eventually get married. Nate, please be around for her wedding!! We liked that you wanted to meet with us – twice. We liked that everyone was so friendly, yet, professional. We liked the whole event planner software. (Alison and Wesley could have their songs, yet, Mom and Dad could also put in our requests.) We felt as if you wanted to do the best job you could for us… as if you were friends. And of course, we LOVE Nate!! Nate, came along side my husband and seemed to understand his stage fright and walked him through what the mic would be like etc. Nate also was very good at reading the crowd. He played just the right music for everyone dancing. Worth every penny! We have actually received notes, cards and texts from friends thanking us for inviting them to the wedding. They say ‘it was like a fairy tale”. “Perfect”. “The most beautiful and special wedding we been too”. “When my daughter gets married this is the wedding I would want for her”. – Alison and Wesley 5/14/16


We wanted to select more than one “genre” for the cocktail hour, and we were able to discuss that with Nate in our meeting. Nate was awesome and definitely met our expectations and was a good fit for us. He was very professional, paid attention to detail, and was willing to be flexible.  Chelsey and Kyle 10/24/15


Nate from Instant Request was our DJ and lighting consultant. We had a DJ for our cocktail hour and to play when our band was on break. Nate was fantastic. He coordinated with the band to make sure that there was no overlap on the songs and made extra effort to get songs that matched our personality. The lighting he provided really made our event. Everything was effortless with Instant Request, which is exactly what you want with such a big event. – Lauren and Dustin 6/21/14
