DJ Anand B

Anand Balar moved to Minneapolis from Valparaiso, Indiana in 2018. He has been drawn to DJing for years, mostly due to the different people from all walks of life that are drawn to the art form. He’s been DJing for  years and picked it up during the pandemic when he couldn’t see DJ shows live in person and the next best thing was doing his own mixes himself at home. He loves spending time watching movies with his cat, biking, producing music, and watching basketball daily when it’s in season. He’s an avid Cubs, Bulls, and Bears fan, but really loves the Timberwolves even though they’re hard to watch most days. In addition, he speaks some Spanish, and is fluent in Hindi and Gujarati. 

We’ll be leaving reviews but we wanted to let you know how amazing Anand was. He was so great with requests and was flexible and on the ball all night. We got SO many compliments for how well he mixed the ceremony music and everyone said he was great during the reception- the dance floor was well filled all night!

Thomas and I LOVED working with him. He made our wedding day so memorable and was so on the ball with small adjustments throughout the night. He worked so well with our photographers and coordinator.  He was such a professional and seemed cool and collected- even when we threw a mini karaoke session and dance performance his way. He truly is an amazing DJ and we feel so lucky that he was assigned to our wedding!

Instant Request was great! Both my husband and I loved that we were able to completely customize everything online and our DJ Anand did an awesome job! We chose them because we both loved that we were able to completely customize our playlist and their website planner was so easy to use! Before booking, we met with Mitch and were so impressed and excited with his enthusiasm. We were assigned our DJ, Anand, three weeks prior to the wedding and were even able to chat before to review all of the details. He was great – we couldn’t have asked for a better DJ experience! So happy we chose to work with Instant Request for our big day!

LOVE LOVE LOVED our experience with Instant Request. So wonderful. So responsive. The online planning system is fabulous and you can literally create your entire wedding playlist if you’d like. SUPER friendly and fabulous and would 100% recommend. Will recommend them 10/10 times to everyone that is planning a wedding! Our DJ was Anand and he kept the dance floor packed all night. I could not be happier. 

Instant Request was SO easy to work with, and their pricing was great! We were assigned to work with DJ Anand, and he did an amazing job. He played all of the songs we requested, along with songs I hadn’t even thought of that got everyone out on the dance floor. We ended the night in a giant circle singing a song. It was the best! Would definitely recommend Instant Request and DJ Anand!! 

Anand was an absolute gem to work with. We would highly recommend him.
