DJ Rachel P

Adopted from China, Rachel was raised in Minneapolis. One of her fondest memories is listening to pop radio in the car with her parents and singing wildly inappropriate lyrics that she didn’t understand as a kid. Throughout school, she played the trombone in concert, jazz, marching, and pep band. Rachel’s background is in film and videography, as her dad owned one of the last independent video rental stores in Minnesota. However, she is known amongst her friends as the one who handles the aux in the car. She enjoys pop punk, classic jazz, EDM, and hip hop/rap. But, Rachel likes to discover new sounds and adapt her playlists to audience preferences.

When she’s not DJing, Rachel works in marketing and runs a creative production agency for social impact organizations. She also enjoys traveling to quirky roadside attractions, yoga, attending concerts, watching movies, learning about cephalopods, and spending time with her friends and family.

Instant Request was one of the best vendors I worked with for my wedding. They were prompt with communications, offered great add-ons like uplighting and a DJ booth to make my wedding even more special, and Rachel the DJ was INCREDIBLE. I’m still getting guests saying how great she was. Thank you so much for helping make my wedding day perfect!

Rachel was absolutely amazing!! She was the best DJ we could have asked for and was so kind, professional, and did everything better than what we could have imagined. The dance floor was packed the whole night and she played an amazing variety of songs, requests, and styles we wanted all while taking into consideration our special wedding requests. She was seriously the perfect person for our wedding. All of the transitions and timing of everything she did was on point. The ceremony, the reception, the bouquet toss, the welcome, the announcements – it was exceptional and I would not want anyone else to have done our wedding besides her. She called me a week before the wedding to make sure we had everything arranged how we wanted and day of she was on top of it all. We can’t thank you enough Rachel for all you’ve done and how special you made our day. If you’re looking for a DJ, You have to choose her! You will be so happy you did!

5 stars! Great experience from start to finish. We loved working with DJ Rachel. She was nice and organized. She genuinely cared about our  wedding. She also gave us a rocking dance. We could not be happier with her.  

We had a great experience with Instant Request. They were communicative with us along the way, and we appreciated the comprehensive event planner they had us complete. The DJ that we were matched with was Rachel, who was fantastic! 

We used instant request for our wedding and had the best experience! Rachel did our ceremony and reception and she absolutely nailed what we were looking for in a DJ! Our guests were up dancing all night long and Rachel even did 1 extra song at the end of the night because no one wanted to stop dancing! Our night flowed perfectly because of her and her cues/announcements! In addition, Rachel did an amazing job at accepting requests from guests which is exactly what we were looking for! THANK YOU Rachel!
