DJ Ben M

Ben is from Shoreview, MN and is a graduate of the University of Minnesota where he played baseball.  He’s been into music for years, and started a band with his brothers as a child.   Ben’s love of music comes from the energy it brings to concerts and performing, and he loves to bring that energy to the dance floor.  Ben remembers the first time he nailed a mix of several songs at a wedding, and watched the dance floor erupt – he tries to bring that same energy to every wedding he performs at.  When he’s not DJing, Ben loves to create YouTube videos, and his other jobs include modeling and acting.  Subscribe to his YouTube channel for some funny and lighthearted content, and maybe a few life hacks!  His favorite non-music art form is dance – unless you count sports as a form of art – and Ben stays true to his hometown teams when it comes to sports, as a fan of the Vikings, Wild, and Twins.

Instant Request was superb to work with. We were paired with DJ Ben and he did an amazing job at our wedding ceremony and reception. Ben played all of our Must Play songs, and kept the dance floor packed all night long. The attention to detail during the ceremony with our song choice requests and flow made it so easy the day of. During the reception, Ben did a great job of making announcements and keeping the evening flowing flawlessly. Working with Instant Request was ideal with their customized playlist, easy to use site, and great staff all around. 10/10 would recommend.

Instant Request was highly recommended by my co-workers. Ben was great! He knew exactly what music to play and how to read the crowd! He was so attentive of what we wanted at our wedding and did a great job making the night magical! I would highly recommend Ben for any weddings or events you are having!

We had DJ Ben from Instant Request for our wedding on 10.4.19 and were super impressed. He brought the energy & was on top of the MC-ing for the event. He played songs that we had requested but did a great job mixing them up throughout the night to keep the guests guessing. He added a few other songs as well and understood how to keep everyone on the dance floor the whole night which was exactly what we wanted!

DJ Ben was amazing! He played songs that got everyone out on to the dance floor and was great at reading the crowd! He was super sweet when kids asked for certain songs to be played, and he knew all of our favorites!

Cannot say enough great things about our DJ! We had DJ Ben Mezzenga and he did an AMAZING job! The dance floor was PACKED all night long and he was great with crowd involvement. He was always smiling and willing to do whatever to make our night go smoothly, which it definitely did. He even had to learn about “the washtub dance” and he was so game for it! We loved having him as our DJ and could not recommend him enough! Thank you DJ Ben!
