DJ Jimmy C

Jimmy grew up in Minneapolis and has always had a love for music. As a child he played piano and was part of a Chinese dance group. He started DJing a few years ago, and has quickly made himself known for his easy going personality, and professional approach. Jimmy has a degree in engineering from the U of MN. When not DJing Jimmy can be hard to find. He is often doing outdoor activities around Lake Calhoun. He enjoys traveling and experiencing different cultures and cuisines. To date, he has visited 27 different countries on 4 different continents.

We had Jimmy C for our DJ and he was fabulous!!!! From our first phone convo with him we were immediately put at ease with his organization. It was so nice to be able to use the Event Planner to input the songs we wanted for our first dance, cocktail hour music, dinner music, all the names of our bridal party and who was going to be introduced and which song we wanted for that, etc.  Our dancefloor was packed ALL night!!!! Although he didn’t play every song we put on our “list” of songs, Jimmy totally read the crowd and kept people out there all night! I think our wedding guests would have danced all night if they could!!

Instant Request was responsive and accommodating from day one. Matt and Nate were always very prompt in answering my many questions, and the on-line planner was very easy to use. I was a little nervous about not meeting our DJ in person prior to the wedding, but in retrospect it really would have been unnecessary. DJ: Our DJ, Jimmy Chien, was excellent. He went through our entire on-line planner with us in very detail weeks before the wedding and was able to accommodate us with our last minute adjustments days prior to the wedding. He was professional and played songs that our guests really enjoyed. Other: we also had uplighting, photo slideshow projector/screen, and ceremony microphone/speakers through Instant Request. Everything was perfect! I would definitely recommend Instant Request as well as DJ Jimmy Chien!

Jimmy Chien was the DJ for both my daughter’s weddings in 2017 and 2018. He is OUTSTANDING. Everyone loved him and ‘cut the rug’ — young and old alike! He is reliable, personable, energetic, respectful. Jimmy is the BEST! Thank you so much! Would highly recommend!

Instant Request was great to work with. We initially went down to the office building for out first consult, and explained to them what we wanted for our ceremony and reception. They have an online event planner that makes it really easy to get the music just the way you want it. I filled it out, and the DJ they assigned us was Jimmy. He was very laid back and a perfect fit for the kind of reception we had. There were a couple of glitches with the microphones, but they were fixed almost immediately. We had a great experience with them, I would recommend them to anyone!
