My wedding was last night and I wanted to pass on that Aaron did a great job! The dance floor was full the whole night. I will definitely recommend you guys to others. - Kaite and Neil 9/30/17
Alex Knight started DJing at the age of 13 when he got his first pair of turntables. Not long after that, he started digging through the crates at local record shops, as well as create his own music. His all time favorite song is “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green and says if he ever gets married, that’ll be his 1st dance song.
In addition to making a name for himself as a skilled DJ in Minnesota, Alex is a resident DJ on a very popular cruise ship, having traveled to over 50 countries and counting throughout the world as a DJ.
With that being said, Alex is one of Instant Request's most sought after DJs for his ability to rock any crowd.
Our experience with instant request was great from start to finish. Their online booking system was simple, payments were easy to make, and the online planning system worked flawlessly. They were very accommodating even when we changed the date of our wedding. Once we were assigned a DJ, we got to have a phone call with him a few weeks ahead of time to confirm details and answer questions. Even though he was in Australia at the time, he woke up early so that we could have a phone call with him at a time that worked for us. When the wedding day came, DJ Alex was helpful, courteous, and respectful to our family, wedding party, and all guests. He helped keep us on schedule, but allowed room for flexibility when a few things took longer. He knew who to give the microphone to and when to do it. When the dancing finally started, he was an absolute hit. He knew what songs to play and when. The standard lighting setup worked great for us too. It was a great addition to the dancefloor, and was even synced to many of the songs. We've received many compliments about him in the days since our wedding.
I highly recommend Instant Request and DJ Alex to any couple planning a wedding. If you aren't sold on the idea of a DJ and are thinking about doing it yourself, think again. He made our day go so much smoother, and it helped us enjoy our wedding day so much more since we didn't have to worry about little details. Thank you Instant Request and DJ Alex! - Kiley and Isaac 10/6/17
Anthony Smith recently DJ'd for our wedding. I could not be happier with the quality of the music he chose! Everything from the dinner music to the dance music was great! He played many of the songs we requested and was able to feel the mood of the crowd for he rest! He was a great people person and I highly recommend him to anyone else who is looking for a DJ for their special day. - Brittany and Aaron 9/30/17
Ayo is originally from Bronx, New York and proud of it. Ayo has always been fascinated with a variety of music. Since he was young he has been exposed to various genres which has led to his love of all forms of music. Currently, Ayo is in college working on a double major in IT and English. He finished very soon and is looking forward to it. Ayo loves DJing weddings. Every family is different and figuring out what moves them on a dance floor is a fun challenge. When Ayo is not DJing or in class, he can be found playing or watching basketball. He is also fond of classic art and has been known to visit museums with friends.
DJ Ayo was our DJ for our June 24th wedding. He provided music for our ceremony and reception. I was a little nervous after our first phone call (it seemed as if he had perhaps forgotten about it!) but, all my worries melted away as the wedding day progressed. He arrived early for set-up and was able to confirm processional details with us for our ceremony. He also kept pretty well to the schedule we set. During our planning phone call, we had told DJ Ayo that we essentially wanted him to do his thing and give us a dance party to keep the dance floor full and that he was more than welcome to take song requests. He delivered. Our guests were out on the dance floor all night dancing away. And the few times that I requested that he play a few slower songs for the older crowd, those songs were the next in the queue. We were so very pleased with the service provided. Us and our guests were having so much fun out on the dance floor that we completely forgot about the bouquet toss and dollar dance (both of which my husband and I were a little wishy washy about doing to begin with). DJ Ayo was actually the one to bring it to our attention and at that point we just didn't want to stop or break up the party for those events. No one seemed to miss them! We tired out our guests earlier than we thought we would and most left around 11pm or so. We were so sad to have to cut the music early but, didn't see any reason to keep going if everyone else was gone and we were starting to clean up. Anyway, thank you so much DJ Ayo! You helped make our wedding day absolutely wonderful! - Carolyn and Justin 6/24/17Learn more about DJ Ayo O
We had Bret C. as our DJ. He was super accommodating to us. I didn't really get an opportunity to complete my online event planner but Bret helped make it easier on me to get the list of songs to him. He assured me that everything would go smoothly during the day of the wedding. He made sure to mix in a great amount of traditional Hmong music with the other songs. I know all of our guests was appreciative of this. Thanks for playing a huge role in my wedding and making sure all the music went well. I don't have enough positive words to describe this experience. I would highly recommend Instant Request Entertainment. - Yer and Vang 7/29/17Learn more about DJ Bret C
Bryan was a great DJ for us. He wasn't too intrusive and played everything we requested, and filled the rest of the time with great songs that got lots of people of different ages on the dance floor. We were so pleased! - Erica and Ben 7/22/17Learn more about DJ Bryan J
My husband and I were VERY pleased with our Instant Request experience. We were paired up with Charity as our DJ. She was AMAZING. From our initial action over email, to our phone conversation to discuss the details of our big day, she made everything very easy. She is professional and enthusiastic. When the big day came, everything flowed very nicely. She is able to "read a crowd" and kept our dance floor packed for the majority of the night. I highly recommend Charity as a DJ! - Katie and Andrew 9/30/17Learn more about DJ Charity B
Our wedding was on 9/3/17 and we had Cody as our DJ! Choosing Instant Request for our DJ and uplighting services made our big day run so smoothly. One of my biggest concerns was the sound quality and making sure every guest could hear the toasts. This was not a problem. The music was great, there were always guests on the dance floor, and Cody handled all of our last minute requests very professionally and efficiently! Our uplighting also transformed the whole room! Will definitely be recommending to future brides! - Savanna and Nathan 9/3/17
We are back from our honeymoon and just wanted to thank you again for being a part of our wedding and reception. We were so pleased with you as our DJ- even our guests commented on how well you did! (My sister, Jenny, with all the requests, said you will be her DJ whenever she gets married too haha). You were an essential piece of our wedding and reception and exceeded our expectations.Thank you again and best of luck in your continued DJ career! We will recommend you to all our friends. We had a great experience with Instant Request. We had a few issues with eatablishing contact with our first DJ, and were assigned a new DJ- Colton, who was fabulous! He was a joy to work with, communicated with us throughout the night, and even our guests commented on how great our DJ was. Would highly recommend Instant Request and specifically Colton. You will not be disappointed! - Danielle and Connor 8/26/17Learn more about DJ Colton A
I wish I could give them more than 5 stars. First of all, the online event planner is extremely thorough and helpful. They have really thought of it all, and it was fun and easy to fill out. My favorite part, though, was how you could create your own playlist. I had not seen this from any other DJ company, so it immediately hooked me. Now onto our DJ... finding a DJ that could really give us the reception and dance we wanted was the number one priority for us when planning our wedding. Unfortunately, our DJ that we had initially picked called in sick the day of our wedding, so they sent Darshan to fill in for him. We were a little nervous at first, because it was unexpected and last minute. I was worried he wouldn't exactly know anything about our timeline or profile, but oh my goodness he was AMAZING. Darshan kept the dance floor packed the whole night and really honored the playlist we created. We had so many friends comment on how great he was at choosing what songs to play next and fading songs into the next. It was so cool. He was also very kind and gave us such a sweet card at the end of the night. Darshan, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! You helped make our reception memorable! Our friends didn't want to leave! - Alex and Bryce 9/23/17
DJ David James (aka DJ DJ) was an amazing person to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. He was extremely professional, yet a ton of fun and very personable. He knew how to get everyone on the dance floor and matched our style perfectly. I cannot recommend him enough! - Julia and Evan 10/14/17
We were really impressed with Davonte! He did a great job leading up to the wedding and the entire night at the reception! The dance floor was packed the whole night, which we loved. We had multiple people come up to us to tell us how much they loved the DJ. Before the wedding, he confirmed the plan over the phone and followed up with any outstanding questions. He was also very responsive via text message if we had any small items we’d like to let him know about. Davonte was very professional in balancing any requests from our guests which didn’t perfectly align with what the groom and I had in mind. We were a little concerned when initially booking with Instant Request since we did not have a DJ assigned until 3 weeks in advance of our wedding but we were very happy with the online planning tool and our DJ! - Kelsey and Bobby 8/26/17Learn more about DJ DaVonte M
Your company provided the music and other sound services for our reception on Saturday at Raspberry Island. I know we had talked Friday night about the switch from Josh to Eric. We both wanted you to know that Eric KICKED ASS! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Any issues that came up he addressed and had an answer for. Not to mention that he kept the dance floor packed all night. You truly have a great professional working for you! - Lisa and Matt 10/8/16Learn more about DJ Erik L
My wife and I went through Instant Request for our wedding and we loved it! Halie Bahr was our DJ and she made the night fun and kept people on the dance floor. She had a DJ tech with her as well ( I can not remember his name) but he helped our guests get more into the music ( He was a great dancer!). Instant request made us feel like family and helped us with every step along the way. The DJ planner was a little complicated at first but my wife and I eventually got the hang of it and were able to add alot of music to our playlist! I highly recommend instant request if you are in need of a DJ service! - Jessica and Rob 9/2/17
Had Jamir as my wedding DJ. He was the nicest person and full of energy. He had a huge smile on his face the entire night, was happy to accommodate any requests, ran things smoothly, and etc. It was a fun night, people said the music was great and I was overall pleased. - Tamicka and Jason 10/7/17
Instant Request was responsive and accommodating from day one. Matt and Nate were always very prompt in answering my many questions, and the on-line planner was very easy to use. I was a little nervous about not meeting our DJ in person prior to the wedding, but in retrospect it really would have been unnecessary. DJ: Our DJ, Jimmy Chien, was excellent. He went through our entire on-line planner with us in very detail weeks before the wedding and was able to accommodate us with our last minute adjustments days prior to the wedding. He was professional and played songs that our guests really enjoyed. Other: we also had uplighting, photo slideshow projector/screen, and ceremony microphone/speakers through Instant Request. Everything was perfect! I would definitely recommend Instant Request as well as DJ Jimmy Chien - Sierra and Alan 6/10/17 Learn more about DJ Jimmy C
My wife and I had an absolute blast at our wedding. Part of that was because of Instant Request and our DJ, DJ Joey. Not only was Instant Request the most cost effective, Joey and Instant Request were easy to work with and made all of our requests happen. Joey also helped us with answering questions we still had with the reception. It was nice to get the professional opinion of someone that has done many weddings. I highly recommend Instant Request and if you get married in the Mankato area, ask for DJ Joey. You won't regret it. Thank you! - Staci and Logan 7/22/17 Learn more about DJ Joey A
I have recommended Instant Request to everyone I know that is getting married! Not only did I love the online planner, i loved that our DJ kept things going on schedule without being pushy! He also dismissed tables for us for dinner so we didn't have to, and played a huge variety of fun music!! - Shelby and Derek 10/7/17 Learn more about DJ Josh P
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that Lisa was GREAT to work with! I hadn't worked with her or any DJ before, but she was flexible, courteous, professional and had the dance floor pleased. :) Once that dance got going we knew we could relax because Lisa had it under control. Thanks again! - Katie and Charlie 4/22/17
Manny did a wonderful job! He did such a great job with controlling the flow of the wedding, playing songs that the group enjoyed, and was overall great to work with. Joanna and James 9/2/17 Learn more about DJ Manny M
Our wedding reception was a blast! We had Natalie as our DJ and she did a fantastic job. She was very professional and organized. We chatted a couple times before the day of to lock down any special requests we had, and to select music for the traditional dances. She had a great sound system and played a perfect mix of music, including special requests, to keep people dancing and smiling all night. Natalie worked very hard and we are very appreciative of her efforts and would absolutely recommend her to anybody.- Kate and Tim 9/17/16 Learn more about DJ Natalie J
I would highly recommend Instant Request as your DJ Vendor. Everything was set up online as far as what songs you wanted, people involved, fun audience interactions, etc. You fill in the blanks to have it catered to your liking and the DJ called a couple weeks prior to make sure he has an idea of your ideal wedding day and goes your list of requests the whole night. We had DJ Obi and he was very accommodating and polite to everyone. He was able to set up his equipment outside for an outdoor ceremony and pulled everything inside during the social hour through dinner and the dancing the night away. I would highly recommend Obi! He even wrote a sweet note to my husband and I before he departed for the night. - Chelsea and Chris 9/23/17Learn more about DJ Obi O
Instant request was great - priced reasonably, and provided us with excellent service on our wedding day. Everything went perfectly, wouldn’t change a thing! - Kelsey and Alexander 10/14/17 Learn more about DJ Tom C
