DJ Holden B

From Winona, Holden has been making music since he was a kid strumming chords on the guitar, punching melodies on the piano, and humming tunes between the two. He played the trumpet and sang tenor throughout high-and college. Holden studied jazz guitar and composition at Macalester and continues to write and produce music today. Besides music, Holden also loves construction and landscaping and works for a nonprofit which specializes in home repair. He also teaches music lessons and when time allows he finds time to paint and write.

Instant Request gave us a fantastic DJ experience! The DJ was perfect for our home venue and guests. He was able to read the crowd to play music that kept everyone happy! Their online event planner was super helpful in organizing everything and giving options for different dances, events, and song requests! I recommend them for any event and highly recommend Holden! – Lorna and Alan @ Residence

Instant request was great to work with! We ended up having Holden as our DJ and he was super genuine and sweet- he went with the flow the whole time! There was a bit of a hiccup which they explained was extremely rare but we were originally assigned one DJ that kind of disappeared out of no where. He never responded to our emails and actually hung up on us when we called him! BUT Holden saved the day! We didn’t get a consultation until days before our wedding but it all turned out so wonderful. Thanks Instant Request! – Amanda and Zachary @ Private residence

My husband and I were VERY pleased with our Instant Request experience. We were paired up with Holden as our DJ. He was AMAZING. From our initial action over email, to our phone conversation to discuss the details of our big day, he made everything very easy. He is professional and enthusiastic. When the big day came, everything flowed very nicely. He is able to “read a crowd” and kept our dance floor packed for the majority of the night. I highly recommend Holden as a DJ!– Katie and Andrew @ Silverwood Park and Vistitor Center
