DJ DaVonte M

DaVonte, originally from MN, started DJing with Instant Request years ago. He then joined the U.S. Navy’s Submarine Force where he spent many years traveling the world before returning home and continuing his DJ career among other things. Not only has Davonte DJ’d many events but it is also in his blood. DaVonte DJ’d with his father when he was young. For years as a child he ran the tables, selected music, and even acted as the “hype man” alongside his Dad. Once out of highschool he started solo gigs whenever possible and then joined Instant Request. Outside of the booth DaVonte works full time as upper level management for Target and also owns and operates Sacred Timepieces, a luxury watch and custom jewelry business.
In his free time, DaVonte loves dancing and actively competes in Mixed Martial Arts with roughly nine years of experience in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai. He is always ready for a spirited game of Chess. He also knows American Sign Language.

Our DJ was DaVonte, and he did a FANTASTIC job! He had everyone out on the dance floor all night long and even got out there himself! He was great about communicating both before the big day and during, checking to be sure everything was according to plan and the way we wanted. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about what a great job he did. Would definitely recommend!

Thank you so much for being a part of our special day and for all your hard work! We really appreciate it! We got so many compliments on you!

I wanted to say thank you SO MUCH for being the DJ at our wedding. You did an awesome job and everyone had so much fun dancing!

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!

Davante was AMAZING for our Starkey event tonight! Thank you SSSSOOO much for sending him to us!

Our DJ, Davonte McClam was so good! All my guests made comments on how much they liked the songs and the DJ. I would highly recommend Instant Request and Davonte!

We had a great experience working with Instant Request. The whole planning process is made easy by their online planner that allows you to customize the experience however you want. DaVonte was assigned as our DJ and I couldn’t have asked for a better fit. He did an absolutely amazing job. Set up was easy & he worked with us through the whole process ensuring we both understood the plan and were getting what we wanted. He kept the dance going all night, including joining us on the dance floor at times for encouragement, and the guests loved him! He was so much fun! My husband is a musician, and therefore picky about certain things. We were both so happy with the experience!

I cannot highly recommend DaVonte from Instant Request enough. He was calm, professional, fun and rolled with the punches (of which there was many). Firstly, DaVonte was very respectful in handling every aspect of our wedding time. He was early, respectful when he needed to ask questions, and gave excellent recommendations when needed. We had quite a few people not able to make the reception, and Devonte was able to still put out a solid party for the people that were there. Highly HIGHLY recommend him and Instant Request in general

Instant Request DJ did our wedding recently. We had DaVonte as our DJ… he was lights out!! He had great personality and charisma. In addition, he followed our suggestions on song list but at the same time he included some of the songs he thought would get the party going. He helped us with our entrance song to the reception. He even cut it so it would work perfectly. I would highly recommend DaVonte and Instant Request DJs. Thank you for helping making our wedding day so memorable!

Davonte was the best DJ out there! He was fun and asked me what I wanted and we worked together! I would definitely choose him again if I had a chance! He’s such a nice guy and he did an amazing job! They worked with me through the whole thing. And I appreciate it! Helped me with everything. 10/10 100% recommend!

Davonte and instant DJ were amazing. Instant DJ had a very detailed form for the entirety of the day to fill out. It seemed daunting with all the other planning but really in hind sight was extremely helpful to get all the details we wanted and needed for the big day! Once we were assigned our DJ, Davonte, he held a phone call with us prior to the big day to further gather details and do a quick run down of everything we had on our form. The day of I didn’t think they could be more organized but they were! Davonte was excellent with communication coming to my husband and I about when we would like to start certain aspects of the nights such as parent dances etc. We are still hearing rave reviews of how great our DJ was and we could not agree more!

I just wanted to reach out to give a massive shoutout to our DJ from our wedding this Sunday. Davonte was just stellar. We had so much fun with him, he was super communicative and made sure our day went perfectly. He helped guide our guests in some of the organized dances, and it was just a blast. We only have wonderful things to say about the service provided and wanted to be sure to tell you directly. We will leave a google review for you all as well. Thank you so much to you and Davonte!!
