Instant Request DJ Staff

DJ Joey A

Joey was born and raised in Minneapolis. He comes from a very musical family and began playing instruments at a young age. He has been playing drums for 17 years and piano for 13 years. Joey started djing for private parties about 4 years ago.

He is currently at Hennepin Tech for audio production and engineering. When he is not surrounded by music, Joey can be found playing basketball, tinkering with audio gear, or seeking a warm beach to do some long board surfing.

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

We never had any issue getting in touch with any of the office staff.  They were very friendly when I came in to sign with Instant Request, and when I had questions afterwards they were always available and helpful. We enjoyed using the software and getting to create our own playlist.  No suggestions – it is really user friendly, and fun to use. Our DJ (Joey A) was awesome!  Friends and family said the music was great, and that the DJ was able to sense the crowd, and kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night.  He also touched base with my husband and I multiple times during the night to make sure we were happy with the music.  We have recommended him to anyone we know who is using Instant Request.We continue to recommend Instant Request, and specifically Joey A to all of our friends who are getting married. We have friends who have gotten married and have paid double what we did.  We got a very good price from the wedding fair, and it was well worth it! – Allison and Peter 9/12/15


We booked Instant Request when they were running a promotion, the price seemed pretty reasonable. Since our ceremony and reception were in the same location and no extra setup was required, they were willing to throw in microphones for the ceremony at no extra charge. They also would have played music for it but we were able to find some musicians last minute. The planning piece was pretty easy/low stress thanks to the online planner that we filled out ahead of time and call we had with the DJ to finalize details the week before. We had Joey A. as our DJ and thought he did a great job keeping people on the dance floor, helping keep the timeline on track, and making any announcements that we requested. Would recommend! – Sarah and Joe 9/5/15
