DJ Leon J

Born in Boston, Leon was raised in the Twin Cities. Leon is a lifelong performer.

He has been performing music since the 3rd grade. He has participated in talent shows singing, playing music, and dancing. He got into DJing in 2007 when he got a job as an assistant DJ carrying crates of records at Club Escape. He worked with some of the biggest names to come through the Twin Cities Club DJ scene. This sparked his interest & fueled his knowledge. He credits a bulk of what he knows of the art, to watching these amazing mixers night after night.

Leon has DJed 100’s of events over the past decade and is known for his ability to mix. Leon has performed multiple times at 1st Ave in Minneapolis. He has also developed his skills behind a camera. He also works recording & producing music & music videos.  Leon also dabbles in Photography as well.

We were so happy with our DJ Leon, he was AMAZING! He could not have helped the day go more smoothly for us and everyone absolutely loved the music he selected!!! My husband & I were so excited to put together our wedding playlist in the beginning, but ended up completely leaving it in Leon’s hands. We were glad we did. He played a bunch of music we loved and made it sound like a club for our entire family. Leon did such a great job of gauging the crowd and finding music that everyone enjoyed (young to old). Highly recommend booking with him for any event!


Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day! We appreciate your service as our wedding DJ. You did an amazing job making sure our wedding music ran smoothly and that our guests were entertained throughout the evening. We’re so happy you and Instant Request were part of our special day.

Leon was so great to work with, he set up a call prior to go over everything. Played great music throughout the evening! The website is nice and easy to go in and select all of your songs.

DJ Leon James was awesome for our wedding reception! He was very kind and chill. I had multiple guests come up to me saying how awesome each song he played was. We never had the dance floor empty! Overall, we and our guests were very happy with Instant Request!

Instant Request was fantastic. I would recommend them to anyone planning their wedding. Our DJ, Leon, was amazing. He reached out to us before the wedding to discuss our plans and preferences for the day. He was incredibly flexible as we hammered out some of the details closer to the wedding. He also arrived super early to set up and then helped pick songs that kept people dancing until midnight! We had a ton of people come up to us after the wedding to compliment our DJ.

Leon was the best DJ ever!!!!! Our wedding was so fun and a lot had to do with the great music that was played! Highly recommend Leon for anyone who wants perfect music and fun!
