Amanda and David 1/9/20 – Kellerman’s Event Center (Brandon Holland)
Instant Request DJ was fantastic. They kept our guests engaged the whole night and had a great variety of music. Our DJ, Brandon, better known as DJ Caramel Sauce, was great!
Taylor and Sean 1/4/20 – Town & Country Club (Justin Roff)
We booked Instant Request after seeing them at a bridal fair/expo in St. Paul. The DJs we talked to were personable and fun, and they were offering a great promotion for early booking. So, we jumped on it! We did pay for the Black Tie service, and chose Justin R as our DJ – he KILLED it! Full dance floor for four whole hours! Not only did our guests have a great time, but he was great at ensuring my husband and I had a great time too. Could not recommend Instant Request and Justin R more!
Molly and Sam 12/31/19 – Lakes and Legends Brewing Company (Justin Roff)
Sam and I are so happy with the way everything turned out on New Year’s Eve and DJ Justin was one of the highlights for us. He did such a great job and people were on the dance floor all night and we’re so happy with him. Thank you Justin!!!!!! You killed it! Thanks for making our wedding so memorable and so much fun.
Emily and Matthew 12/28/19 – The Crown Room (Ben Mezzenga)
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!
Amy and Brooks 12/28/19 – Lafayette Club (Brandon Holland)
We had Brandon DJ for us on December 28th. He read the room and kept the party going in the best way. He also helped the kids have an awesome dance party during the down time before the official dances began. Highly recommend!
Sydney and Ian 12/28/19 – Ashery Lane Farm (Alex Knight)
Thank you for being our DJ. Great job on the music and atmosphere, it was exactly what we wanted. Thank you for helping to make the day special!
Jane and Devin 12/27/19 – Holiday Inn and Suites Lake Elmo (Zachary Bayerl)
Zachary B from this company was truly astounding. He knew how to read the room and was exceptional at taking song suggestions and making them work. He blended songs together and if we hadn’t had to deal with a snow storm we could have easily danced until dawn! The pricing package was perfectly matched for what we needed.
Caitlin and John 12/21/19 – Minnesota Masonic Heritage Center (Tom Coughlin)
We had such a wonderful experience with Instant Request! They were so easy to work with and Tom did a great job reading the room and playing what everyone wanted to hear to get the party going!
Emily and Scot 12/21/19 – Grand Banquet Hall (Kyle Egan)
We had the extremely fortunate opportunity to work with DJ Kyle Egan. A consummate professional, he knows his stuff-can read a crowd with ease and made everyone feel comfortable and joyful. Winter weddings are tough, our dance floor was small but mighty and DJ Kyle had a lot to do with that. Thank you so much, Kyle and Instant Request. We knew we could count on you and we are happy to recommend you to anyone who will listen!
Jeri and Mike 12/21/19 – Brackett’s Crossing Country Club (Derek Hanisch)
Derek did a fantastic job at our December wedding. We had a health emergency that needed attention and during that time Derek wisely turned volumes down and kept the guests entertained. When that emergency was resolved he helped bring the remaining browd back up for a strong, fun, wonderful finish to our night. Thank you Derek for your understanding, kindness and skills to make our wedding all that we’d hoped for!
Megan and Spencer 12/20/19 – Jax Cafe (Auctavias Blanchette)
Our Instant Request DJ was a hit! The entire process of setting up our schedule for the night and playlist was so easy. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a reliable and fun DJ.
Annie and Kevin 12/14/19 – Dellwood Country Club (Jimmy Bogen)
If we could only repeat one detail of our wedding it would be booking Instant Request specifically, Jimmy B. We knew right after meeting him that we were in good hands and he did not disappoint. He was able to read the room and switch the music to keep people on the dance floor all night. We highly recommend Instant Request and Jimmy B.
Emilie and Sam 12/14/19 – The Blaisdell (Rick Ausland)
We had Rick as our DJ, and I am STILL hearing from guests that they loved our dance and have never seen so many people on the dance floor at the wedding. Thank you!
Taylor and Jack 12/7/19 – Capitol Room in St. Peter (Kyle Egan)
We booked Instant DJ request due to excellent ratings. We got a great deal & were so excited to get our DJ assigned to us. We were assigned Kyle Egan- and he was absolutely PHENOMENAL. I can truly say he was the best DJ I’ve ever seen at a wedding ever. Our guests were on the dance floor the entire night- he knew exactly how to keep everyone having fun. His pacing with all the crowd events was excellent- we didn’t feel as if our first dances, garter or bouquet toss were rushed. Everything seemed to flow perfectly. He took requests, but also respected our wishes! His lighting and equipment were great. Honestly couldn’t be more happy with Kyle as our wedding DJ. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. He did an excellent job.
Margaret and David 12/7/19 – Pinewood Event Venue (Alex Knight)
Instant Request (specifically Alex Knight) did an INCREDIBLE job! We were a bit nervous at first since their website is a bit older and they don’t assign a DJ until ~1 month before. But wow, we were blown away by our DJ both during the ceremony and the reception. Alex did an incredible job coordinating with the wedding party and the officiant and keeping the evening on track. I especially appreciated that he went out of his way to make sure the folks giving speeches or walking in knew what they were doing. He followed our music taste and guests’ song requests perfectly. We also had silent disco for our wedding, and he (along with the venue) made this such a seamless transition! Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ. The dance floor was packed the entire night! Thanks so much!
Lori and Tim 12/7/19 – Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West (Randy Grubba)
Instant Request and our DJ Randy were outstanding. The experience my Bride and I had was phenomenal, from meeting at the Instant Request headquarters to the last song at our reception. We were shown how to navigate their website and we were able to select songs we wanted played and not played. We selected a handful of songs and DJ Randy took control of our reception and kept our guests on the dance floor until the very end of the night. We also used up lighting and that looked amazing along with our decorations and the up lighting was very reasonably priced. The night was perfect and DJ Randy and Instant Request only made it better. My Bride and I could not be more pleased and would recommend Instant Request DJ Entertainment in a heartbeat.Thank You!
Lauren and Zachary 12/7/2019 – Refuge Golf Club (John Butler)
Instant Request was amazing! Our DJ , John B did a wonderful job and he really took the time to make sure he knew what we were looking for in our ceremony & reception music. We received so many compliments on the DJ and how great & fun he was and the dance floor was full ALL NIGHT!
Jenelle and Justin 11/23/19 – Machine Shop (Justin Roff)
Justin was the DJ at our wedding ceremony and reception and he was absolutely fabulous! He was so easy to work with! The music selection was great. The music for the service was perfect. He met with us beforehand to make sure he understood the vibe we wanted. We had some unique song choices for our ceremony and he was able to play them without a problem. He did a great job reading the crowd throughout the night and he played all the songs we wanted. I didn’t want the night to end! Highly recommended! Everything went according to plan. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!
Christine and Sam 11/23/19 – Hutton House (Alex Knight)
We purchased the Black Tie package for our wedding a few weeks ago, and ended up choosing Alex K. since we had seen him at a previous wedding. Alex was super accommodating during our planning meeting, and made sure that everything we talked about was carried out during our ceremony and reception. During the reception, he did an amazing job engaging the crowd, and our dance floor was packed for the entire evening until the last song played. We would highly recommend Instant Request, and specifically Alex if you are looking for a great DJ!
Azalea and Aaron 11/22/19 – Hutton House (Justin Roff)
I am so blessed to have found Instant Request while looking for the perfect DJ for my wedding. Justin was responsive, professional, friendly, flexible and fun! He was the best. They also offered military discount which we were appreciative for. I recommend Instant for any event, because they truly cared about making sure my wedding day was everything I wanted!
Talysa and Dustin 11/16/19 – Refuge Golf Club (Kyle Egan)
Our DJ was Kyle Egan. He was absolutely amazing! He went above and beyond to help make our day the best it could be. He listened to what we wanted and kept the dancing going all night! I also have had friends go through Instant Request and I haven’t heard a bad review about any of their DJ’s. Highly recommend.
Erin and Taylor 11/16/19 – Landmark Center (Rick Ausland)
Our experience with Instant Request from start to finish was fantastic! The online planner was easy to use and helped us map out the evening. Our DJ, Rick, was phenomenal! He took the time to learn about our music preferences, the mood we wanted for each part of the evening, and brought it to life day of. We received so many compliments on how fun the dancing and the music selection was throughout the whole night. We are so thankful for Rick and Instant Request for ensuring we had excellent music and dancing throughout the night.
Annie and Tyler 11/16/19 – Earl and Wilson Event Center (Michael Majerowicz)
Instant Request did an excellent job with introducing us to DJ Milk Majer, the best DJ ever! Instant Request was very professional and helpful when it came to choosing a DJ for the wedding. We would highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for a DJ service!
Lisa and Luke 11/9/19 – Silverwood Park Visitor Center (Jimmy Bogen)
I just wanted to send you an email and say how absolutely AMAZING DJ Jimmy was this past weekend at our wedding. He did a great job and we could not have imagined it any better. He made sure everything was the way we had discussed and had asked for clarification on anything that we might have missed. And he had so many of us on the dance floor all night long. I had multiple people comment on how great it was. We will for sure be recommending him and Instant Request to our friends that are getting married!
Kaila and Blayne 11/9/19 – Minneapolis Event Center (Alex Knight)
We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ for our wedding night, Alex was the absolute best! Each step of planning and any questions we had were quickly answered by Alex. The online DJ planner that Instant Request offered was SO helpful in choosing songs for our night! The music from the ceremony, to creating custom song mixes for the father daughter dance, to the last song of the night were perfect. Alex was engaging with our guests and knew how to get and keep everyone out in the dance floor having a great time. We are so happy we had Alex as our DJ and were able to work with Instant Request!
Samantha and Andrew 11/9/19 – Earl and Wilson Event Center (David James)
We worked with DJ David James for our wedding on 11/9 and he absolutely exceeded our expectations. Finding the right DJ was so important to us and he was incredible. The dance floor was full the entire night and he was excellent at reading the crowd! Our guests are still talking about how good he was and how much fun they had on the dance floor! He also helped us execute our “NBA-themed” grand march and it went off without a hitch. Thanks so much DJ David!
Jennifer and DJ 11/9/2019 – Dellwood Country Club (Allie Pasiuk)
Ali with Instant Request was the BEST! We had so many compliments on the music for the day. Ali knew exactly what kind of music was needed to keep the dance floor going all night! I could not recommend them more!!
Sarah and Jacob 11/9/19 – Warehouse Winery (Jamir Hopson)
I was very impressed with our DJ Jamir. He was super helpful during our pre event call and helped me figure out what I wanted for my event. The music at the event was perfect – exactly what I wanted. Everyone kept saying how awesome the music was all night! Jamir was kind and very professional.
Lindsay and Austin 11/8/19 – JX Event Venue (Justin Roff)
HIGHLY RECOMMEND JUSTIN! He was absolutely amazing to work with, he listened to exactly what we wanted, and was responsive to us and our guests! He was always in a good mood, and a great guy to be around!
Jessica and Eric 11/2/19 – Woman’s Club of Minneapolis (Tom Coughlin)
Instant Request was amazing! They were easy to work with and offered a great value. They have a wonderful online platform that helps you easily layout how you’d like your music selections to flow. It allowed us to cover all the bases, even things we hadn’t considered! Our DJ was Tom and he was fantastic. He kept the dance floor packed the entire night, making selections that the whole crowd loved. I also felt Instant Request was a good value compared to other places we researched. I would recommend them to other couples, ask for Tom!
Sarah and Alec 11/2/19 – Dellwood Country Club (Ben Mezzenga)
Ben was fantastic!! Our whole experience with Instant Request was so amazing and easy; I never had to worry about anything which made this part of wedding planning a breeze! Highly recommend to anyone!
Amanda and Daniel 11/2/19 – Seven Vines Vineyard (Brandon Holland)
Instant Request absolutely exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Our wedding was on November 2nd, 2019 and we found IR through both our venue’s preferred vendor list and met them at a wedding fair. We also had so many people recommend IR to us, so we already knew we were in great hands. Having the right DJ and a full dance floor the entire night was something very important to us. We went with the black tie option and had Brandon Holland aka DJ Carmel Sauce as our DJ. I don’t think there is enough we can say about Brandon from our first meet and greet to his fun professional personality and his ability to keep the energy going ALL NIGHT! HE IS AMAZING!!!! Our entire wedding party and guests absolutely loved him and it felt like he was truly a part of our day. He was so helpful to keep things going on time, I never had to think twice about the details, he checked in with us throughout the night and really made us feel like we could let loose and enjoy ourselves. He also had a very long standing, working relationship with our event coordinator from our wedding which was another huge plus for us. We also gave him an idea of what we were looking for as far as music goes but ultimately had him really run the show, I mean he is the professional, not us 🙂 You will not be disappointed with IR and you will most definitely not be disappointed with Brandon!!! Thank you so much!!!
Halle and Jacob 11/2/19 – Villa Bellezza in Pepin, WI (Justin Roff)
Justin was our DJ for our wedding at the recommendation of our wedding planner & we were not disappointed! Justin had a telephone conference with us to ensure he knew what we wanted our wedding day to be like. On the day of, he kept everyone on the dance floor for the entire night – everyone told us they had such a great time and loved the music. I would highly recommend Justin & Instant Request!
Ellen and Zach 11/2/19 – Tanners Brook Golf Club (Dario Mejia)
Instant Request was fabulous. Dario was our DJ for our wedding reception and he did a great job reading the crowd, playing music that got people dancing (even people that I was surprised to see dancing) & kept the dance floor active. He was always professional and made everything so easy for us. The Event Planner we filled out allowed us to express our exact wishes for the evening and everything turned out fantastic. Very reasonable price for high quality service- 5 stars all the way!
Michelle and Christoher 11/2/19 – Rolling Ridge Wedding & Event Center (Kyle Egan)
Me and my wife we extremely happy with our DJ Kyle Egan. He was very professional about everything. It was everything we dreamed of.
Caitlin and Jordan 11/1/19 – Machine Shop (Charlie DuBois)
Charlie D worked with us for our wedding earlier this month. Charlie is super fun and laid back, reads the room like no other, and made us feel instantly at ease because we trusted him immediately. We cannot recommend Charlie D enough! He is a great guy and wonderful to work with. Our dance floor was packed all night long. From the first night we met and had a beer with him, to the last song of our wedding night – great experience all around. Definitely recommend Instant Request.
Abby and Eric 11/1/19 – TPC Twin Cities in Blaine (Kyle Egan)
Thanks for helping us host such a fun wedding! All of our guests had such a fun time.
Sara and Jeff 10/26/19 – The Blaisdell (Jordan Nanasy)
We were so happy with our DJ – Jordan Nanasy 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 Jordan’s hands because we were focused on finalizing other aspects of wedding planning (literally did not choose one song for the reception). Jordan 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!
Hope and Sam 10/26/19 – Solar Arts Building (Alex Knight)
We were so lucky to have Alex Knight as our Wedding DJ!! We reserved through Instant Request DJ and based on our information were paired with Alex. I was able to grab coffee with him prior to the wedding to chat about the music for the day and instantly knew that it was the perfect match! Alex picked up exactly on the type of music that my husband and I wanted to be played throughout our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. I love music and can sing along to almost any song but when I am asked what the song name/artist/genre is I am hopeless. Thankfully, Alex was quickly able to decipher what I was trying to convey and the outcome was amazing! Music sets the tone for any event and Alex was able to understand perfectly what we were looking for in each part of the day. We have received SO many compliments from our family and friends (even other vendors!) on how perfect the music and Alex was! Nobody wanted to leave the dance floor at the end of the night and that was 100% Alex!
Bridget and Derek 10/26/19 – Riverview Greens Golf Course (Bret Christiansen)
Had an amazing experience with Instant Request…our DJ was Bret Christiansen, he was fabulous! I have never been to a wedding where the dance floor was always full of people dancing throughout the entire wedding dance. I could see him jamming over in the corner when he was building the lists for the next music. He kept the dance floor full, was great at following our requests and announcements, and he is very friendly. Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ experience! He also did the ceremony and it went great, overall 5 stars, he was very flexible with last minute changes that we made, and it flowed very well. Dinner music and pre ceremony music was well picked by him, wouldn’t hesitate to have him again!!
Jordyn and Ben 10/26/19 – Minnesota Valley Country Club (Obi Okeke)
We had DJ Obi for our wedding as a Black Tie DJ and he was great! We met with him beforehand and went over all the elements of our night, and Obi did a fantastic job following the plan for the night! Thank you for keeping the dance floor fun and the party going all night long!!
Sarah and Tyler 10/26/19 – FIVE Event Center (Jimmy Bogen)
Jimmy was the best! He listened to our do and do not plays and was all around a great time! We would hire Instant Request again in a heartbeat!
Sera and Bobby 10/26/19 – Hidden Meadow and Barn (Shawn Parker)
Our DJ was awesome! He kept our group going all night and did such a great job with our requests!
Colleen and Jack 10/26/19 – Aria (Natalie Jensen)
We were so happy with our DJ at our wedding in October. Natalie was assigned to us and she did everything she could to make sure we were happy. We also received several comments from guests that they’ve never seen the dance floor so full at a wedding. Thanks Natalie!
Maggie and Aaron 10/26/19 – Minikahda Club (David James)
DJ David was so fun and accommodating to our needs – he gave great ideas and suggestions to make our night even better! He has a ton of experience and a great feel for what the crowd wants. Highly recommend!!
Jami and Joe 10/26/19 – Grand Banquet Hall (Dario Mejia)
We used Instant Request for our wedding reception. Our DJ did everything we asked, the only thing I would recommend is to utilize the planning tool and make a list of “must play” songs. We wanted a mix of 90’s and 2000’s from our college years, and that is what we got, but there were songs I wish would have been played that I didn’t think about until later. That is not the DJ’s fault, just something I would do differently if I could go back and change it. Also, I was very happy that when I asked for a song it was played next, I was the bride after all!
Maria and Drew 10/19/19 – Graduate Minneapolis (Brandon Holland)
We could not have been happier with Instant Request, and especially our DJ, Brandon. Worth every penny. They listen carefully during the consultation and the day of, they come in, can set up lighting, have all the audio equipment ready, and make sure everything goes off without a hitch. DJ Brandon (aka Caramel Sauce) is amazing. He was great at reading our crowd, kept the energy up, and was dancing behind the DJ booth right along with us! Great guy, listens to all your needs and makes it happen!!! Brandon brought the energy from the moment we had our phone call consultation. He was an absolute blast, nailed everything we asked of him and was an absolute delight to our guests. We can’t recommend Brandon and IR enough! He made our wedding more even special than we could have imagined!
Marissa and Jason 10/19/19 – Minneapolis Event Center (Kevin Feidt)
We had a great experience with Instant Request (Worked with Kevin specifically the day of the wedding). Their online platform for working on the playlists and songs to played at various points made the process really easy and straightforward. Pricing was reasonable from what we could tell comparing to other companies in the Twin Cities. Thanks!
Abigail and Zachery 10/19/19 – Bloom Lake Barn (Alex Knight)
My (very recent) wife and I chose the black tie option and chose DJ Alex Knight and holy sh*t was he amazing! He was better than we could ever have hoped for. He knew exactly what he was doing, made the entire night run super smooth and man does he know how to DJ! He had our very large dance floor packed all night long and was killing it with the music/song choices! Very friendly guy and to anyone looking to choose a DJ just choose Alex and trust us! 😎
Janice and Patrick 10/19/19 – Minnesota History Center (Tom Coughlin)
Tom was a delight! He’s a gentle giant with a knack of feeling the room. We had an excellent phone call with him before the wedding and when we got to the day of, we didn’t worry about a thing. He quickly made any adjustments on the fly! We would highly recommend Tom for anyone looking for a DJ.
Heather and Aaron 10/19/19 – FIVE Event Center (David James)
David was amazing! All night long the dance floor was packed and our guests kept telling us what a great DJ we had!! He was professional, up to date and really knew how to read the room! He did a great job from start to finish!
Heidi and Eric 10/19/19 – Links at Northfork (Alexander Weaver)
If I could vote 4.5 stars, I would have. We had Alexander Weaver and everything was great. The only issue we had was some “popping” feedback during the speech he wasn’t able to resolve. Other than that, Alex did exactly everything we asked of him. He was very easy to work with and responded quickly to all emails which I appreciated. We also had a second DJ with equipment for the offsite ceremony and once again, everything about it was perfect. No technical challenges, the volume was perfect. Everything went smoothly. The online planner was a great touch. I wish a few things could be customized, but we just communicated those items to Alex and all was good.
Ashley and Lindsey 10/19/19 – Gasthaus Bavarian Hunter (Ryan LaRue)
We heard about Instant Request DJ through a friend that works for them. We requested a quote for our wedding and received word back that very same day! We were so surprised at the reasonable price and booked them immediately! Their DJ Event Planner was super easy to use and made us feel very organized about the whole day! And now our DJ….Ryan was AMAZING!!!! He was helping our personal attendants with set up even before our reception began! He checked in with us before every major event of our reception and his music selection was SPOT ON!!! He kept the flow of the reception going throughout the entire dance! Thank you Instant DJ request and RYAN so much for all you did to make our day that much more special!
Amy and Jon 10/19/19 – Hyatt Regency Bloomington (Jimmy Bogen)
DJ Jimmy is amazing. He had incredibly creative ideas and was very flexible to work with. He had our wedding vision in mind and kept people on the dance floor the entire night. I wouldn’t go with anyone else for any of our future events!
Archi and Kyle 10/19/19 – Harriet Island Pavilion (Justin Roff)
Thank you so much for DJing our wedding on October 19th. We really apprecaited working with you and you taking the time to listen and work with us. You did a great job at the reception and everyone had a ton of fun. You were a big part in making the day special. Archi loved getting on stage and singing into the mic and it is a memory we won’t forget. Thank you again for all of your time and energy.
Robyn and Luke 10/18/18 – Weddings at The Broz (Obi Okeke)
Instant Request was an extremely smooth process. My wife and I had DJ Obi and he was absolutely incredible. I gave him a few songs and I told him I trusted him completely to read the room and play what he thinks the people would love. He delivered on that and I had a bunch of friends go grab his card when the dancing was over. I’m sure there are a lot of capable DJ’s but I have never been to a wedding where a DJ sings to you and gets the crowd in it like he did. I HIGHLY recommend DJ Obi and Instant Request. They made the best day of my life even greater. Thanks again DJ Obi & Instant Request.
Samantha and Dustin 10/18/19 – Nicollet Island Pavilion (Justin Roff)
Terrific service. We had a Hindu ceremony and Instant Request DJ did a fine job throughout the entire ceremony and reception. Highly recommend.
Kara and Brent 10/12/19 – The Neu Neu Event Center (Brandon Holland)
Having a packed dance floor all night was a ‘must-have’ for our wedding and DJ Caramel Sauce (Brandon H) delivered! We chose to go with the Black Tie option and chose our DJ and could not have been happier with Brandon. From our initial meeting to the end of our wedding day, he was constantly checking in with us ensuring we were happy. Instant Request makes the planning process super easy with their Event Planner and they were able to obtain a song not in their library for our processional. Brandon handled the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner. The music he chose for the cocktail hour and dinner fit our tastes perfectly. Brandon played all of the songs on our ‘must play’ list and seamlessly incorporated his own choices to keep the evening moving. Our reception was incredibly fun and exactly what we wanted thanks to DJ Caramel Sauce!
Jenna and Justice 10/12/19 – Elm Creek Park Reserve Chalet (Max Greene)
We had an awesome evening with Instant Request at our wedding. The day of the event, a different DJ showed up than our original assigned DJ, but he did a great job. They were quick to respond to emails and professional in planning. We definitely would recommend Instant Request to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding!
Meredith and Michael 10/12/19 – Aria at the Jeune Lune (Charlie DuBois)
We had Charlie as our DJ!! He had the dance floor going all night long! Charlie was very professional and entertaining! We chose the Black Tie DJ option and after reading all of the bios for those available on our date, we went with Charlie…about a month later I was at a wedding and during dinner I said “I really like this DJ’s voice”, turned around to see it was CHARLIE. I approached him that he would be doing my wedding in about a year from then and he was so pumped about it. Instant Request uses a portal system that you go in and fill out what you want musically for every aspect of your wedding and it was super helpful and convenient. We met with Charlie a month before the wedding at a brewery and had a great conversation about what our vision for the music was, he also handled all of my parents questions very well and impressed them with how knowledgeable he was. Charlie kept our dance floor bumpin’ the entire night. We had a very diverse crowd (inter racial couple) and he managed to cater to every person in the room. Not only is he an amazing DJ but he’s also a great guy and was so supportive and excited for us. Music was one thing my husband was most worried about and Charlie delivered exactly what we wanted.
Lyndsey and Jon 10/12/19 – Minnetonka Orchards (Obi Okeke)
We got married 10/12/19, the weather was not ideal, and we actually lost power…a few times. We had DJ OBI, he was and is amazing. He was very laid back during the power outages and the chill from having our wedding in a large tent. He kept the dance floor full and catered to our requests through out the evening. The music was on point and the transitions between songs was a great touch. Myself, my husband and guests enjoyed having him on our day. Thanks again!!
Renae and Mark 10/12/19 – JX Event Venue (Paul Kue)
I can’t imagine having a better experience with a wedding DJ than we did with Paul. We could tell right away from our initial phone call with him that he cared to understand our style and what we wanted from a DJ at our wedding. He listened to what we wanted, and provided great suggestions for how to keep the dancing going, which was very important to us. Instant Request’s planning software was helpful, and made us feel secure that we had a plan for the day, but Paul’s execution of that plan and keeping the party going was perfect. We would definitely recommend Instant Request and Paul Kue to others.
Krystle and Michael 10/12/19 – Harriet Island Pavilion (David James)
Look no further for a DJ service – Instant Request with David James is AMAZING! He was wonderful to work with leading up to the big day and we had comments all night long about how Awesome our DJ was! He had our guests on the dance floor all night and even mashed a surprise father/daughter/family dance to start the evening. A+ service! Ask for David James to DJ your event! 🙂
Sarah and Joey 10/12/19 – Campus Club of the University of Minnesota (Jordan Nanasy)
We hired Instant Request DJs and were assigned to Jordan Nanasy. He did a great job – the sound was on point and everything went according to plan. We had some specific requests for our ceremony which he accommodated as we had discussed before. When it was time for the dance floor to open up, he kept things going all night! We are so glad he kept things fun for our guests.
Kelly and Steve 10/12/19 – Private Residence (Bret Christiansen)
I just wanted to give a shout out to Bret for his excellent service on Saturday night!! He was amazing and really made the night come alive for us! He even agreed to stay extra time. We will definitely pass his name on for Instant Request referrals. Thanks again for the wonderful service! 🎉
Jacqueline and Mark 10/12/19 – Pinstripes (Ryan LaRue)
Ryan was amazing. We asked him to read the room and told him about the general vibe we were looking for, and MAN did he deliver. He essentially took control of our entire reception and made sure everything happened as we planned it, and smoothly. The best part of the night was the send-off and it was largely thanks to him. Cannot recommend Instant Request enough.
AJ and Dom 10/11/19 – FIVE Event Center (David James)
I can’t say enough great things about DJ David James. We met him at a vendor event at our venue and knew pretty quickly that we wanted to book HIM, specifically. He was so personable, “got” us and our music style, and kept everyone on the dance floor right up until the end. Wish we could do it all over again so that we could dance more!
Katie and Bert 10/11/19 – Warehouse Winery (Shawn Parker)
We knew Shawn would be an amazing DJ from the first phone call. He immediately put my mind at ease assuring us we would have a great time. He went through everything in great detail in the phone call before the wedding. The day of, Shawn made it a point to come find me to introduce himself with the same assurance we would have a great time. Everything from the ceremony to reception was perfect! He kept the dance floor packed the entire night. I even saw people who never dance on the dance floor! What really caught my attention is Shawn made sure my husband and I were together to dance to our dating song (Electric Love). The only negative feedback I did have was he did almost forget our dollar dance but he quickly fixed it. At the end of the night, he gave me and husband some advice and wished us the best of luck in our marriage. It was so touching. It shows he truly cares about his clients. He should be in the black tie group as he is an elite member of Instant Request. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an awesome DJ!
Klarissa and Landon 10/11/19 – Pinstripes (Tom Coughlin)
My husband and I initially wanted to keep costs low for our wedding and decided to go without a DJ. I went to a wedding in July as the videographer’s assistant and spent a good amount of time talking to the DJ there. The DJ was Tom C with Instant Request. He was super funny and answered all the questions I had about his equipment, the process, etc. Once the reception started, I was able to see first hand how great his DJ skills were! He was an awesome MC, and all the music flowed together really well. He was able to read the crowd and play music accordingly. After seeing him in action, I realized I really wanted him to DJ my wedding in October and convinced my husband we needed to hire a DJ. When I called Instant Request, the managers were super nice and helpful, they laid out all of our options for DJs and they made sure to accommodate us when we requested to have DJ Tom. I was worried what the price would be since we booked only 3 months in advance (which is super short notice in the wedding world), but their quote was incredibly affordable and transparent, especially since we got the Friday event discount and we only needed basic services. DJ Tom did such a great job at our wedding, and the process was a breeze. He worked in peoples’ music requests and made sure all the different genres of music we had transitioned flawlessly. I would definitely recommend Instant Request, and especially DJ Tom C.
Rebekah and Justin 10/11/19 – St. Paul College Club (Jamir Hopson)
Jamir is the best! He kept the flow of the night going smoothly. His song selections kept people of all ages on the dance floor all night long. Would highly recommend Jamir and Instant Request!
Beth and Jon 10/5/19 – Belle’s Event Center (David James)
We had the opportunity to work with DJ David James and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a fun, young, high energy wedding. From start to finish, David was a pleasure to work with and I can truly say that he was the reason our wedding guests had so much fun. The last call shuttle bus was overflowing because almost everyone stuck around til we were kicked out of our venue, and I have no doubt this was because of David. He listened to what we wanted, he stayed true to what we didn’t, and he did not try to be the center of attention on our big day.
Katie and Gilbert 10/5/19 – Graduate Minneapolis (Ben Mezzenga)
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.
Erika and Jake 10/5/19 – Horse and Hunt Club (Charlie DuBois)
This was a fantastic experience for us! I first met Charlie at the wedding fair and he sold me right then and there! I knew I needed to do the black tie DJ because I wanted to guarantee he would be our DJ! He was so easy to talk to, funny, full of energy, and confident! I appreciated all that because on the day of he took care of all my fears! He made sure we were having a great time and he kept the dance floor alive! Cannot say enough good things!
Hailey and Ryan 10/5/19 – Rush Creek Golf Club (Max Greene)
I just wanted to pass along that our DJ (Max Greene) from this past Saturday did an awesome job! Our wedding party was on the dance floor until the very end, and everyone we talked to said he was great.
Manda and James 10/5/19 – Prestwick Golf Club (Anthony DuBose)
Had DJ Anthony at Prestwick Golf Course and was an absolute hit. We gave him the liberty to read the room and did it perfectly. Very professional and accommodating. Would recommend every time.
Megan and Nick 10/5/19 – Minneapolis Marriott West (Alexander Weaver)
I wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for being a wonderful DJ at our wedding this past Saturday! You were amazing at adapting the music to what the crowd was enjoying so that our guests would stay out on the dance floor! Again, thank you so much for being so wonderful to work with!
Lisa and Craig 10/5/19 – Millennium Hotel (Derek Hanisch)
Instant Request did a great job at my wedding. Derek was my DJ and he was very personable and easy going. I would recommend Instant Request for any future parties! Thank you for providing the entertainment and equipment during the wedding ceremony, reception and dance. Derek, you did an amazing job throughout the whole night. The wedding planner was very helpful during the process and how to keep organized up until the wedding. Thank you for being approachable with all of our questions.
Rachel and Gavriil 10/5/19 – Minnesota Valley Country Club (Justin Roff)
Justin Roff was our DJ for our wedding and he did a phenomenal job!!! He kept the party and the dance floor going all night! He communicated with us frequently throughout the night to make sure everything ran smoothly. Justin is the best!
Brittania and Chad 10/5/19 – Private Residence (Jordan Nanasy)
I was absolutely pleased with the DJ services at our wedding. Jordan was amazing….he was punctual, fun, professional, and played great music. He also played any requests from our guests. Plus, he kept our day going at the perfect pace. I received many compliments about him as our DJ. I highly recommend using Instant Request DJ’s!
Jamie and Tyler 10/5/19 – Lafayette Club (Ben Nordquist)
LOVE LOVE LOVED our experience with Instant Request. So wonderful. So responsive. The online planning system is fabulous and you can literally create your entire wedding playlist if you’d like. SUPER friendly and fabulous and would 100% recommend. Will recommend them 10/10 times to everyone that is planning a wedding!
Jackie and Mac 10/4/19 – Earl and Wilson Event Center (Ben Mezzenga)
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!
Marie and Timothy 10/4/19 – Ridgetop (Tom Coughlin)
We were not sure what to expect using a bigger company who picked our DJ for us without us knowing who’d we get. We were matched with DJ Tom and he blew our expectations away! DJ Tom called us about one week prior to our wedding to go over all parts of our wedding – this made us a little more comfortable with our decision to book with Instant Request DJ. On our wedding day, DJ Tom made a point to introduce himself to us as well as any important members of our wedding, including other vendors. He was dressed professionally and was so natural around us, as if he was part of our friend group. When it came time to play the music…. DJ Tom was hands down the best DJ we’d ever came across. He knew what music to play to keep the crowd going! We heard from nearly all of our wedding guests that our DJ was awesome. So when booking with Instant Request – request DJ Tom!
Alicen and Peter 10/4/2019 – Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens (Allie Pasiuk)
DJ Allie was an incredible addition to our wedding. From our surprise first dance, to the rap from our maid of honor, to our three song throwback to the 1950’s, and everything in between–she was an absolute pleasure to have at our wedding. When we first decided on booking a DJ, I was worried about who they would be and whether or not they would match up with what we were hoping for our wedding to be. Allie was a sound technician, a wedding coordinator, and a disc jockey all in one. She was so incredibly professional and a joy to work with. I honestly cannot overstate how great it was to have her as a part of our big day. If Allie is working on your wedding, you are in excellent hands!
Taylor and Chris 10/4/19 – Redeemed Farm (David James)
We had a spectacular experience with DJ Dave! He was so great to work with and we appreciated the way he wanted to accommodate what we wanted at our wedding. He was very professional and fun! The dance floor was still full at the end of the night!
Ashlee and Lucas 9/28/19 – Bloomington Event Center (Ben Mezzenga)
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!
Carly and Dylan 9/28/19 – Charleston Event Center (Zachary Bayerl)
Instant Request was a perfect DJ service from our wedding from the start of the process to the end. We selected DJ Zach AKA DJ MadLove (Zachary Bayerl) from the Black Tie DJs because he had such great reviews. Zach did a phenomenal job working with us to make sure all of the music that was played was either selected by us or approved by us. He really did a great job of feeling out the crowd and keeping them dancing all night. He even got out on the dance floor with us a couple of times to lead us in group dances like the Cha Cha Slide! I would definitely recommend DJ MadLove to anyone looking for a great DJ for any event!!
Mary Kate and Robbie 9/28/19 – Marriott Minneapolis Southwest (Jordan Nanasy)
The best DJ ever! We had Jordan N and he surpassed our expectations. From start to finish the process was seamless. They take into consideration not only the bride and grooms wants, but consider your crowd. It was so easy and I cannot thank Instant Request DJ enough!
Chelsi and Jeff 9/28/19 – Millennium Hotel (Justin Roff)
We had Justin R for our DJ and he was absolutely amazing. Kept the dance floor full all night and played the best music!!! Highly recommend!!!
Samantha and Merik 9/28/19 – Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West (Shawn Parker)
Our DJ helped make our night amazing. He was able to accommodate our families requests and everyone seemed to have had a blast.
Natalie and Bryce 9/27/19 – Bloom Lake Barn (Alex Knight)
Alex Knight was the greatest! Easy to work with and provided everything we had imagined for our wedding day.
Anne and Elliot 9/21/19 – Como Park Conservatory (David James)
David was amazing! We met him prior to our wedding and he quickly relieved a lot of the stress I had around planning our ceremony and reception timing. He kept everyone on the dance floor all night long and made sure everything including speeches ran smoothly. He was very friendly and listened to our wants/needs. Thank you so much for making our night special and fun!
Amy and Andrew 9/21/19 – Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens (Ryan LaRue)
Our DJ Ryan was amazing! We had the best reception with everyone dancing all night and we owe it all to him! He was so helpful during our phone call and day of with our timeline and the flow of our reception. I highly recommend Instant Request!
Lauren and Zachary 9/21/19 – Bearpath Golf & Country Club (Tom Kramm)
We were assigned w/ Tom Kramm & he was great to work with! We spoke w/ him a week before the wedding & he guided us through how the night would run. We were super relieved to learn how knowledgeable he was & how he would help make the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dances run smoothly. Our wedding day went perfectly & didn’t have any music or sound system problems! Highly recommend Tom for his energy & enthusiasm. He is hilarious & knows how to run the show! Instant Request knows what they are doing & I loved how we could build our own playlist easily on their website. Worth every penny!
Jamie and Matt 9/14/19 – Bunker Hills Golf Club (Obi Okeke)
Obi was our DJ and did a fantastic job. We had him from the ceremony through the dance party. He did a great job working with us leading up to the wedding and during the day. Our dance floor was packed all night thanks to Obi! Obi was the best. I’d recommend him to anyone who wants to have a busy dance floor. Instant Request was easy to work with. We had great service from everyone involved.
Alexa and Alan 9/14/19 – Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato (Alex Knight)
DJ Alex Knight killed it at our wedding this past weekend! The dance floor was packed all night long! 12/10 recommend him and Instant Request!
Kory and Andrew 9/14/19 – FIVE Event Center (Josh Perkins)
Instant Request did an amazing job! The DJ, Josh, was amazing and the guests loved the music. He took requests and made the guests very happy. Thanks to Josh, everyone had a great time dancing and loved the playlist. The up lighting was so cool! Highly recommend the company!
Marla and Alex 9/7/19 – Outing Lodge at Pine Point (Ray Bell Jr.)
Had Raymond Bell as a DJ for my wedding and he was wonderful! Ray was professional and worked hard to make sure our day ran smoothly. Every time a song played Ray would be interacting and having a good time with the crowd, all while playing great songs!
Nicole and Westin 9/7/19 – Bunker Hills Golf Club (Justin Roff)
I knew Justin R would be perfect for our wedding when he did his “DJ voice” in the middle of Caribou during our planning meeting and sure enough, JUSTIN KILLED IT. I got the recommendation to request him as our Black Tie DJ through my coordinator and he literally made our entire night. I have never been to a wedding where EVERY song was the perfect song for that exact moment. Our dance floor was filled the entire night and I have had so many people come up to me and say that it was the most fun wedding they have ever been to. I ended up doubling my tip for him on the spot because he was so great. Every time you thought “I’ll sit out and rest for the next song”, a song would start playing that you couldn’t possibly sit out. It was amazing.
Brianne and Tim 9/7/19 – JX Event Venue (Kevin Feidt)
I highly recommend Instant Request for any event you need a DJ for! We got married in September and were assigned DJ Kevin, and we got SO MANY compliments on our music! We’ve also had other friends use Instant Request and everyone has been super impressed!
Mikaela and Steven 8/25/19 – Royal Golf Club (Ben Mezzenga)
Ben was amazing! Very professional service and a pleasure to have at our wedding! We have recommended him to several friends and family 🙂
Mickael and Beau 8/24/19 – Freeport Community Center (Ben Mezzenga)
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!
Amy and Jeff 8/24/19 – Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington (Jamir Hopson)
Jamir was hilarious and many compliments from my guests on him! Super funny and just all around genuine. Highly recommend him!

Sarah and Chris 8/24/19 – Greenhaven Country Club (Alexander Weaver)
We recently used Instant Request for our wedding and couldn’t have been happier with our decision. Alexander Weaver did an amazing job, between prior to event correspondence and handling day of preparations, everything was great. We had an amazing wedding and if we ever need DJ services again we will be sure to book Instant Request and will ask for Alexander for sure.
Rachel and Sam 8/23/19 – Capitol Room in St. Peter (Patrick Sullivan)

We have received so many compliments about how great the music was at our wedding, and it is all thanks to Obi!
Paige and Morgan 8/17/2019 – Bearpath Golf & Country Club (Allie Pasiuk)
Instant request was fabulous! Allison (Allie) was absolutely incredible! She was extremely personable, and made the night a breeze for Paige and I! We had told her to “play the room” as far as playing music that people seemed receptive to dancing along to, and she did exactly that! She also sprinkled in the songs that we had chosen before the wedding, and took requests from our guests who wanted to hear something more specific. We couldn’t be more pleased with our choice of DJ! Thanks Allie!
Kelly and Andrew 8/17/19 – White Bear Yacht Club (Tom Coughlin)
DJ WAS AWESOME. Did what we requested to a T. No technical difficulties. What made him amazing was what he did when we gave him the flexibility to express his talents, it created such an incredible dance floor atmosphere. This DJ was the best.
Michelle and Chris 8/17/19 – Brackett’s Crossing Country Club (Charlie DuBoios)
DJ Charlie D was awesome! Michelle and I both felt very comfortable with him from the first time we met him.

Last but not least, he kept the dance floor busy with his wide variety of music to keep everyone entertained. I would highly recommend to anyone!
Julie and Michael 8/17/19 – Keller Golf Course (Ben Nordquist)
Ben was the DJ we chose for our Wedding reception. As soon as we met with him, we knew he was the perfect choice for us.

Great music choices and wonderful personality. Very professional and we would highly recommend Ben!
Michelle and Tyler 8/17/19 – Edinburgh USA Golf Club (David James)
Incredible experience with Instant Request. We are so glad we went with the Black Tie DJ David James. He was unreal at reading the crowd and making sure that dance floor full the whole night. Super impressed with his ability to take requests but play the best music the whole time – we didn’t need to do one-off requests. From our initial sit-down meeting to the wedding day, David was extremely organized, professional and executed his job to the highest level on our wedding night.
Amy and Nicholas 8/17/19 – Creeksbend Golf Course (John Butler)
It was a magical day! John B. did such an amazing job at reading the crowd and picking songs that matched the energy level around the room! Thank you!!

Awesome company! Very easy to work. Alex Knight was really friendly and you can tell he really loves his job. The dance floor was packed all night. Highly recommend!
Michelle and Randy 8/17/19 – Seven Vines Vineyard (Zach Bayerl)
Zach did a great job during our ceremony and reception. There were a few minor hiccups but they didn’t ruin the day! I would highly recommend Instant Request.
Sloane and Kevin 8/16/19 – Nicollet Island Pavilion (Allie Pasiuk)
Great experience with Allie! She really cares about us and we didn’t even know what we wanted for the processional or during the 4 hours of dancing. Allie made it all happen and my new wife and I, and my guests, loved her. Thank you!
Christine and Derek 8/16/19 – Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens (Alex Knight)
Do not wait to book with Alex Knight. He was the best! He provided such a VIP service, it was amazing. He played our Ceremony and our reception and we couldn’t have asked for a nicer and more professional DJ. He kept us cool, he smiled constantly and he mixed the beats to keep the songs flowing. 10/10 would recommend again. You can tell he loves his job and we can’t thank him enough!
Niki and Alex 8/16/19 – Seven Vines Vineyard (Anthony DuBose)
We had an awesome experience choosing Instant Request as our DJ. We chose the Black Tie package so we could hand select Anthony as our DJ after seeing several amazing reviews about him, and we are so glad we did! Anthony went above and beyond to go over every detail and make sure we were on the same page as far as our wants and visions for our day. He was so easy to talk to and did a great job keeping our day on track. He was the perfect choice for us! The whole process was great.
Rachel and Spencer 8/16/19 – Oak Ridge Country Club (Dave Kellner)
Dave, our DJ, was great! We didn’t have a complete game plan for after dinner but Dave took our pre-planning phone call after we were matched to a DJ and put together an awesome evening. He played both new and old songs per our request. The online planner was also a very easy to use tool. It allowed us to pick the music genres we wanted to hear and provide a general timeline. Dave also checked in with us before the evening started to make sure we were comfortable with what he had set up. He also did cocktail hour music without any problem. Extra bonus: this company is a great price!
Lauren and Jay 8/16/19 – Brackett’s Crossing Country Club (Jimmy Bogen)

The whole process of using Instant Request was smooth an easy. Highly recommend!
Saarika and Sean 8/10/19 – The Blaisdell (Jimmy Bogen)
I just wanted to send a quick e-mail to let you know how fantastic Jimmy was on Saturday evening! I am so happy that we had him as our DJ! I could not have imagined a better event. He did a great mix of reading the crowd and playing our requests. I cannot rave enough about him. I hope we didn’t scare him during our meeting, because I think we requested that more “traditional” wedding songs not be played and instead maintain more of a party environment. He absolutely delivered. He kept our dance floor packed! He did a fantastic job of reading our crowd and playing a few Indian songs. Jimmy was the emcee that we didn’t know we needed. One thing that especially stood out to me was how he walked around to dismiss our guests for dinner. We had multiple guests approach us and told us that was an excellent way to dismiss them and they commented on how nice he was. My dad was also so happy with the microphone coaching he got pre-speech. We had so many people reach out to us on Sunday and let us know how great Jimmy was and how much fun the evening was!
Julia and Ross 8/10/19 – Pinstripes (Allie Pasiuk)
DJ Allie was amazing! She met with us weeks before the wedding to talk through our vision and made my bride feel so at ease for our big day. On the day of, Allie was great at helping to organize our guests, communicating with other vendors, and of course playing bumping jams. Allie made this the best dance I’ve been to for a wedding, which was awesome because it was my own wedding! We absolutely recommend DJ Allie for anyone searching for a DJ!
Michelle and David 8/10/19 – Maple Grove Community Center (Ray Bell Jr.)
Ray was nothing but excellent, far exceeding our expectations! He is extremely accommodating and his work managing the timeline to ensure our reception went off without a hitch allowed us to relax and enjoy the evening with our friends and family. Ray had a great mix of music and kept the dance floor packed throughout the night. Several guests and our whole bridal party complemented his work. My wife and I highly recommend Ray!
Brooke and Mitchell 8/10/19 – Gopher Hills Golf Club (Bryan Jacobson)
Our D.J. for our wedding was a very fun and professional individual! Bryan Jacobson did a great job making sure that we (the wedding couple) were always happy with what was happening. He was also very quick to think of songs to play when our songs weren’t long enough during the nights’ occasions. Overall, he helped make our special night a huge success. Thanks!
Karlie and Dan 8/9/19 – Hope Glen Farm (Jimmy Bogen)
We loved DJ Jimmy B! He was so easy to talk to, read the crowd, and just did his thing without us having to worry about a thing!

At one point we had a small mishap with the schedule and our DJ helped us buy some time by keeping the crowd at ease while our wedding party scrambled behind the scenes to help us get what we needed in place. He was so fun and helpful and if you can, we highly recommend you request DJ David!
Colleen and Donovan 8/9/19 – Town & Country Club (Andrew Najafalipour)

Evette and Creighton 8/9/19 – Little Log House Village Hall (John Butler)
Instant Request was super easy to work with and made the planning process that much more enjoyable.

Cassie and Andrew 8/9/19 – Lowell Inn (Koop Anderson)
Koop did a fantastic job setting the tone for our wedding!! Koop went over every detail beforehand with us to be certain everything ran as we anticipated.

You won’t be disappointed!! And they are priced just right!
Brittnee and Sam 8/4/19 – Minnesota Valley Country Club (Alex Knight)

Overall just a great job and we keep hearing how great the wedding was as a result!
Stephanie and Benedict 8/3/19 – Grand View Lodge in Nisswa (Nate Anderson)
We had DJ Nate, which was really special because he DJ’ed the wedding where we met! He could NOT have been better. We loved him and the whole experience! The dance floor was full all night, in fact one of my crabby guests complained that the “dance floor was too full” haha!
Becca and Cody 8/3/19 – Park Ballroom in New Prague (David James)
Outstanding service! DJ David James kept the dance floor busy all night! He made sure our grandmarch at the reception with our bridal party was unique and special! He was great at taking requests while also mixing it up with our custom playlist and his own music to keep the party going! Would 100% recommend him to anyone!
Alex and Cody 8/3/19 – Legends Golf Club (Dave Kellner)
Instant Request DJ was great for our wedding! We didn’t have a ‘definite’ wedding schedule but our DJ, Dave, was super willing to work with us and be accommodating to our schedule the day of the wedding.

Overall we had an amazing experience with Instant Request DJ and we would recommend them for anyone look for a wedding DJ!

We loved using Instant Request for our wedding! DJ David was phenomenal to work with; when we met with him, he immediately understood how we wanted our day to flow and the types of music various types of guests would enjoy. He even flawlessly worked with our processional music when our flower girl and ring bearer took a bit longer than expected and extended our song. We would 100% hire Instant Request again!
Caroline and Ryan 7/27/19 – Loring Social (Jimmy Bogen)
DJ Jimmy was hands down the BEST! The dance floor was full the entire night. He went off of are play list and songs that we selected, but also felt the vibe of the room and decided when to switch it up and change the song. If you are looking for a DJ for an event Jimmy is the guy!!!!! Great music and great entertainment! Made for a great wedding.

Kassidy and Marcus 7/27/19 – Hidden Meadow and Barn (Justin Roff)
Our Black Tie DJ, Justin, was phenomenal! I was so nervous that we would have technical difficulties during the ceremony, but the music, timing, sound and mic were all perfect. He played great music for the dance! We had a phone call prior to the wedding day where he went over every detail with us so that he could be as prepared as possible, which was so nice! The online event planner is very extensive & ensures that every detail is covered, so that your special day plays out perfectly.
Kaia and Adam 7/27/19 – Birch Hill Barn (Tom Coughlin)
Our DJ did an amazing job!! Announced everything correctly, was super flexible with us, and played all the right music! Couldn’t have had a better experience.
Cecelia and Taylor 7/27/19 – American Swedish Institute (Rick Ausland)
Rick from Instant Request was the best wedding DJ I’ve ever experienced. He was professional, kind, and incredibly talented. We had so many friends asking for his name at our wedding. We received so many compliments on his talents! He made the night so special and fun for all. Definitely gave his name/info out to a few friends who are getting married 🙂 Would definitely recommend!
Ashley 7/27/19 – Venue Coordinator at Olympic Hills Golf Club (Trevor Todd)
I can’t tell you how many rave reviews we got last night and that are still pouring in this morning. Trevor was THE BEST that we have ever had here at the club and I would like to know if you are able to note this for us for future events here at Olympic Hills – we would love for him to come back the members had ***such a blast!!!***
Molly and John 7/27/19 – Wayzata Country Club (Charlie Mitchell)
Charlie was everything we hoped for and more! He was very respectful of all of our requests for the day and kept a full crew on the dance floor the whole time! My fiancé and I absolutely loved working with him throughout the entire process! Would definitely recommend Instant Request and DJ Charlie!!
Kay and Brady 7/27/19 – River Oaks in Cottage Grove (Naomi Schroeter)
Naomi was our DJ for our wedding celebration and she was absolutely wonderful. Did a great job of keeping everyone involved from the little kids to the old folks. She did all she could to help us have a wonderful night!
Tracy and Timothy 7/27/19 – Indian Hills Golf Club (Patrick Sullivan)
Patrick Sullivan did a over the top fantastic job. He was on time, professional, and listened to what we had to say…Very easy to work with. We gave him a general song list and his selection for additional songs was right on. Of course my bride and I were nervous about the wedding and the reception but after speaking with Patrick on the phone he really put our minds at ease. I would highly recommend using Instant Request DJ Entertainment and I would highly recommend using Patrick as a DJ.
Eric Vest Photography 7/27/19 – Bearpath Golf & Country Club (Allie Pasiuk)
I’m writing just because this is the 2nd time I’ve worked with Allie and I just have to say what a GREAT DJ she is! I work with all sorts of DJs and it take quite a lot to impress me. She was kind, on top of everything, very professional with the guests and always let them know what was coming next in the run of events, dressed incredibly classy, and the list goes on. And besides that it didn’t seem like a big “Dancing Crowd” but she had the floor packed the whole time I was there!
Stephanie and Rob 7/27/19 – Hutton House (Anthony DuBose)
Anthony was amazing!! Would definitely hire again.
Sarah and Paul 7/27/19 – Private Residence (Ray Bell Jr.)
Ray was great. Very friendly and kept the party going.
Nicole and Lucas 7/26/19 – Calhoun Beach Club (Jimmy Bogen)
We had a great experience with Instant Request, and in particular with DJ Jimmy B. Your company was extremely responsive to our questions and worked with us throughout the process. Whenever we had a question or concern, Instant Request handled it immediately and made us feel comfortable. Jimmy B did a great job at our wedding of keeping the dance floor packed! He read the crowd extremely well and played songs that people loved. He was very professional throughout the planning and event.
Alyssa and Luke 7/26/19 – Machine Shop (Anthony DuBose)
Anthony from Instant Request was amazing! Once we met him at our planning meeting we knew that he was going to be awesome and make sure our guests had a great time. He was very good at getting a sense of what we wanted and what was important to us ahead of time, but made sure we just got to enjoy the day when it came without having to bug us at all! We realized about halfway through dinner that we had forgotten to give him our playlist for the dinner, but somehow there had been great music playing all night already! Truly great at making the day special and taking care of everything for us!
Chris and Hansol 7/26/19 – Harriet Island Pavilion (Allie Pasiuk)
Our DJ, Allison, did a phenomenal job at our wedding. She was very personable, nice and confident. Instant request was very easy to communicate with and they’re online portal was simple enough to use and plan the details of the wedding music. We chose to just let our DJ choose most of the songs because she is the professional, and we were happy to have that stress off our shoulders. We felt the base price for the services was reasonable and we didn’t purchase any add-ons.
Alexis and Ryan 7/26/19 – Watson Block (Trevor Todd)
DJ Trevor Todd was awesome and followed our event planner perfectly! Everything went smoothly and I couldn’t have asked for anything better!
LaRae and Mason 7/20/19 – Giants Ridge (Tom Coughlin)
We had DJ Tom Coughlin for our wedding last weekend. I’m not sure if I can express how satisfied we are with his service and performance. He did AMAZING!! The dance floor was packed all night long because of his engagement with the guests and because he read the crowd and switched up the songs as he needed to. If we are ever in need of a DJ again, him and Instant Request will be our choice for sure. Thank you, Tom and Instant Request!!
Jenna and Eric 7/20/19 – St. James Hotel in Red Wing (John Butler)
Did a great job of reading the crowd and playing songs that got people on the dance floor. We had a request to ask some trivia questions during the night and our DJ was more than happy to accommodate our requests.
Beth and Dylan 7/20/19 – Rush Creek Golf Club (Jimmy Bogen)
If you are looking for a DJ look no further . This was by far my best vendor . So organized , professional, reasonably priced , and AMAZING! Jimmy B exceeded all expectations . We had so many guests compliment us and many asked for his information for their upcoming events . The entire night ran smoothly with Jimmy’s lead . He was so personable and quick to read the crowd and select the best song choices . We can’t say enough good things . Thank you Jimmy for an amazing dance party! Words fall short of expressing what a great job you did at the reception! Not only did you keep the party going on the dance floor, but you were so organized and your calm attitude put both Dylan and I at ease. We had so many compliments on how fun our dance was and how wonderful you were! Thank you for running a night we won’t ever forget! We will treasure the memories forever!

Alyssa and Tyler 7/20/19 – 3 Ten Event Venue in Fairbault (Alex Knight)
DJ Alex Knight was awesome! We were impressed from our initial meeting to talk over our wedding day with him. We had a lot of out of town guests who left right after dinner however he was able to keep everyone that stayed out on the dance floor until midnight! Would recommend him over and over again!
Brittany and Evan 7/20/19 – Minneapolis Club (Dekontee Lombel)
It was absolutely wonderful. Our DJ went to our venue almost a week before to get the layout and worked with our contact there so we didn’t have to worry about any of the logistics at all. The sound quality was perfect, Dekontee handled all the announcements and kept the train moving along seamlessly. Which must’ve been like herding cats at times. But most importantly the dance floor was full the whole night! 10/10 would definitely recommend.
Amanda and Daniel 7/19/19 – Hyland Park Chalet (Trevor Todd)
I would 100% recommend instant request to anyone looking for a customized DJ experience. Trevor Todd was our DJ, and he was kind, professional and played all the best music. Trevor rolled with our last minute changes and did exactly what we asked him when discussing our plans. He was great with our guests’ requests and easy to work with.
Nicole and Zachary 7/19/19 – Wilds Golf Club in Prior Lake (Ray Bell Jr.)
Ray was attentive and quick to help us announce anything we needed to communicate as well as make sure all of our speeches went off flawlessly. When he said he was going to play all the hits, I never expected the perfect blend of old and new hits that had everyone on the dance floor at least once. Would highly recommend to others.
Kelly and Brent 7/19/19 – Bearpath Golf & Country Club (David James)
It was great working with David James! He was attentive to our wishes and threw a great party with some great music! He was also very receptive to feedback. We’d recommend Instant Request!! We had a great experience with our DJ!
Kristen and Joshua 7/19/19 – Loring Social (Jimmy Bogen)
Jimmy Bogen could not have been better. He played a great mix of the songs and genres that we requested. Multiple people have told me how awesome our DJ was. DJs make a difference. Jimmy made a difference. I could not recommend him enough. Thank you so much for being a DJ at our wedding! You did an amazing job. The ceremony and dance music was perfect. So many people commented on how much fun they had dancing at the wedding. People that normally refuse to dance were out there busting a move. We can’t thank you enough for creating the perfect atmosphere on our big day!
Ashley and Tim 7/19/19 – Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel (Justin Roff)
Justin was FANTASTIC! The reception flowed seamlessly and everyone from age 5 to 85 was kept entertained. Justin was a class act and we were more than happy to have him as a part of our reception. I cannot imagine our wedding reception without DJ Justin. He was professional, attentive to us and our guests and kept the dance floor full until 1am! He was able to effectively mix in song from all eras and all genres to keep people engaged, and create a killer dance party atmosphere for everyone. Thank you so much! DJ Justin and Instant Request were absolutely amazing to work with.
Shelby and Damon 7/19/19 – Rush Creek Golf Club (Alex Knight)
I can’t thank Alex enough for the job he did at my daughter’s wedding!! He was engaging and open to our ideas. Best of all, the dance floor was packed until the lights came on at midnight! Alex was the BEST DJ we could have asked for!!!! He literally killed it. He wasn’t overwhelming and didn’t try to steal the show, but really kept things moving and truly played the hits from start to finish. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience!! I will recommend Alex and Instant Request to anyone who asks.
Alexis and Derek 7/13/19 – FIVE Event Center (Ray Bell Jr.)
Our DJ was Ray and he was amazing! We had a great experience using Instant Request DJ services. Throughout the process of booking and lead up to our wedding they were very quick to respond. We had a phone consult with our DJ prior to the event and he was very courteous and took what we wanted seriously. The day of our wedding, our DJ, Ray, kept the dance floor busy the ENTIRE dance. We had so many compliments on our DJ. We would definitely recommend Instant Request and Ray to anyone! Our friends and family were dancing all night. Highly recommend Instant Request, very easy to deal with and stress free.
Sarah and Jason 7/13/19 – Almquist Farm (Allie Pasiuk)
Ali was absolutely incredible! Following the wedding, many friends and family members commented on how great the music selection was. Guests of all ages were on the dance floor throughout the entire night. Ali played a huge role in making our wedding day the best day ever!
Michelle and Billy 7/13/19 – The Blaisdell (Ryan Weber)
Instant Request did a phenomenal job DJing our big day! The dance floor was never empty and Ryan knew exactly what songs we wanted played and how to keep the party going! We are one of the first couples from our friend group to get married and will DEFINITELY be recommending Instant Request to all of our engaged friends!
Michelle and Erik 7/13/19 – Bunker Hills Golf Club (Logan Korus)

Mikayla and Lucas 7/13/19 – Seven Vines Vineyard (Charlie Mitchell)
Charlie helped facilitate our wedding day and did a fantastic job! We met with him prior to talk about the day of events, music preference, etc. He made sure the evening ran smoothly and the dance floor was filled before we shut down out venue for the evening. Highly recommend him!
Claire and Nick 7/13/19 – Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel (Alex Knight)
Alex was fantastic. He read the crowd really well and everyone stayed on the dance floor. We wanted a dance party and he definitely delivered!
Rebekka and Shawn 7/6/19 – Brackett’s Crossing Country Club (David James)
We had David as our black tie DJ and he was amazing! He was so great at reading the crowd to constantly keep the mood lively and fun! One of our biggest concerns was to make sure everyone was dancing and having fun and David totally made that happen! We would recommend every future brides and grooms use Instant Request and also to ask for David – you will not regret it!
Rachel and Matt 7/6/19 – Minneapolis Event Center (Charlie Mitchell)
Charlie was an excellent DJ! He kept everything on schedule, played requested songs, and kept the whole wedding jamming until the end! I loved the template we were able to fill out ahead of time to let the DJ know our group’s music style. I would definitely recommend using Instant Request!
Sarah and Veasna 7/6/19 – Seven Vines Vineyard (Justin Roff)
Justin Roff from Instant Request was delightful to work with. He was able to combine two cultures of music together very smoothly. Our wedding had light music during the cocktail and dinner hour and the DJ stepped it up with great dance music after the first dance. I would recommend working with Instant Request.
Kelly and Matt 7/6/19 – Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens (Alex Knight)
We had a great experience with Instant Request DJ and everybody at our wedding enjoyed the music. Thank you so much for making our day great.

Maddie and David 6/30/19 – Golden Oak Farm (Alex Knight)
100% would recommend Instant Request for any DJ needs. We chose Instant Request on a trustworthy recommendation from friends and are so happy we did. Every conversation with the company was reassuring, friendly, and informative. Mitch and Matt are great to talk to and are very much the first people during the process that help get the day’s overall flow figured out (there were times I when I was in a better mood after speaking to one of them!). We were assigned Alex Knight for our wedding day and we were pleased with his services from beginning to end. Guests of all ages complimented his personality, flexibility, song transitions/mixing, and courteousness. The next day, my mom exclaimed she enjoyed his interactions and positivity and wanted to send him a tip! (we tipped him day of :)). Highly recommend this company. They are all great people!
Wendy and Collin 6/29/19 – Hyatt Regency Bloomington (John Butler)
John Butler was PHENOMENAL!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better night. John was professional, easy going, flexible, and it was such a pleasure working with him. With the craziness of the wedding, I didn’t have to worry about a thing when it came to the music which was huge! The ceremony was flawless and he did fantastic with the music. As far as the reception, I didn’t think I stopped dancing the whole night. Everyone has not stopped raving about how much fun they had! I wish we could re-live the night over! I’ve attached our album for you to scroll through to see all the happy faces throughout the night as proof! Thank you for being great. We feel lucky to have been matched with you. Thank you so much John!
Amanda and Nate 6/29/19 – Golden Oak Farm (Tom Coughlin)
We had a barn dance on the hottest day of the year, and Tom kept stance inside the entire time even though it was 100 degrees in there. He moved a speaker outside mid way too, so people could still enjoy the music! He was fantastic!
Kelly and Patrick 6/29/19 – Interlachen Country Club (Justin Roff)
Justin was an awesome DJ for our wedding. He was super easy to work with and enjoyable to be around. We really appreciated the time he took to meet with us ahead of time and the note he left for us at the end of the night. The music was excellent and things couldn’t have gone better. You can’t go wrong with Instant Request DJ, especially Justin.
Kayla and Michael 6/29/19 – Dellwood Country Club (Alex Knight)
Thank you so much for being our DJ at our wedding ! Your passion truly shines and you really know how to run a party! Thanks for being so awesome, we wish we could do it all over again!
Sarah and Charlie 6/29/19 – Plymouth Creek Center (Charlie DuBois)
Charlie was outstanding! From start to finish he was helping us through our wedding day. He was able to relate to any and all of our guests young to older. The whole company is responsive to communication, and very professional. The music selection is never ending and if you can’t find it on their list, they will find it for you! HIGHLY recommend their services, you won’t regret it!
Rachel and Patrick 6/29/19 – Columbia Golf Manor (Rick Ausland)
I wanted to shoot you a note and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding absolutely perfect. You did an amazing job and truly went above and beyond for us on our wedding day, and we could not be happier with your work! When you brought in You and Me by Dave Matthews at the end of my toast after hearing me quote it, when you went into the anniversary dance after the somewhat awkward moment of my dad not being initially around for the Father/Daughter dance, when you kept the party going all night; every moment was flawlessly executed. I had multiple people approach me during the wedding and tell me that you were an absolute rockstar. Thank you so much for creating the best party atmosphere for the biggest night of our lives. Your professionalism, relaxed manner, and understanding of how to keep a party going are second to none. The memories that you helped created will never be forgotten!!!
Jenna and Ryan 6/28/19 – Minneapolis Event Center (Charlie DuBois)
Charlie was awesome and incredibly accommodating. He was always giving us updates and guiding us through the night. He was also very passionate and even though a good portion of the crowd hung out outside all night, he stuck with it and had an incredible attitude. I would recommend him for any event. On behalf of Jenna and I, we would like to thank you for everything you did on our wedding day. We truly appreciate the level of detail you had and the attitude you had to just have a good time. It made the entire day that much better. We felt like everything was spot on!
Nicole and Ryan 6/28/19 – Seven Vines Vineayard (Justin Roff)

Bethany and Nathan 6/28/19 – Green Acres Event Center (Anthony DuBose)
Anthony was amazing! There’s nothing he can’t do!!
Kelly and Stephen 6/22/19 – Lowertown Event Center (Justin Roff)
Absolutely loved working with Instant Request, the planner and day of Justin Roff. He is truly the best and we had the dance floor going all night. Do you want your dance floor FULL non-stop at your reception? Yes? Then book with Instant Request. I echo many brides’ reviews on full dance floors and flawless service. We absolutely LOVED Justin R. with Instant Request. He was so supportive with our ceremony timelines and ensuring everything was executed perfectly. He communicated with us throughout the evening to ensure we had everything we needed and to keep the night rolling. We could not have thanked him more — he was not only a DJ but almost another ‘planner’ that day. Our dance floor truly was jam packed from the moment Footloose kicked off until we had to pack up and leave. He nailed it! I wanted a solid dance party and he delivered. 12/10 – the best! My guests had a blast and his communication and guidance throughout the day made it seamless. Would recommend him/the company to anyone!
Lindsey and Nathan 6/22/19 – Private Residence (Allie Pasiuk)
Instant Request DJ entertainment was a very positive experience for our wedding day! DJ Allie was able to give my now husband and I a lot of guidance when we were at a loss for how we wanted things to go! Our wedding was very informal and we wanted people to have fun. DJ Allie provided just that in a professional yet fun and spunky way. We were happy with everything she did and provided. She didn’t need much direction from me, she kept the crowd happy and entertained!!! She was AMAZING!!
Alaina and Peter 6/22/19 – Seven Vines Vineyard (David James)
We used Instant Request DJ Entertainment for our wedding in June 2019. Our DJ was David James and he was amazing. He worked with us on getting a great playlist together and met with us in person to go over the music and our timeline for various parts of our wedding. On the day of our wedding, the music was perfect. Not only did he play our list of songs, he was open to requests that made our event really fun. Everyone had a great time! Highly recommend David and Instant Request.
Caitlin and Nick 6/22/19 – Cottage Farmhouse in Glencoe (Daniel Gazca)
Instant Request was great! Both my husband and I loved that we were able to completely customize everything online and our DJ Daniel did an awesome job! We chose them because we both loved that we were able to completely customize our playlist and their website planner was so easy to use! Before booking, we met with Mitch and were so impressed and excited with his enthusiasm. Mitch was extremely responsive any time I emailed him with a question. We were assigned our DJ, Daniel, three weeks prior to the wedding and were even able to chat before to review all of the details. Daniel was great – we couldn’t have asked for a better DJ experience! So happy we chose to work with Instant Request for our big day!
Megan and Justin 6/22/19 – James J. Jill Reference Library (Tom Coughlin)
Our DJ was great! He played music that was very fitting to our requests and we received endless compliments on the music. The dance floor was packed the whole night!

Alexander was awesome. He kept the crowd on the dance floor and kept the bride happy.
Katrina and Scott 6/22/19 – Minneapolis Marriott West (Brandon Holland)
Our wedding last Saturday was perfect, and our DJ Brandon H was a huge part of that. Brandon H was an absolute rockstar! He was so helpful and attentive, and he even helped us out with some unwanted wedding crashers. We absolutely loved working with him, from the moment we met him at the wedding fair, to our face to face meeting and the last dance on Saturday.We loved working with him and he put in 150% to make our wedding was the party we wanted to be. Our dance floor was packed from the very beginning of the night all the way until the end. Thank you for dealing with our crazy family and friends and for helping them all have the best night possible. People kept telling us that they couldn’t believe how much dancing there was. Everything was perfect and we couldn’t be happier!
Cassie and Jake 6/22/19 – Minnetonka Orchards (Charlie DuBois)
Everything from start to finish was wonderful & easy. We worked with Charlie who was absolutely incredible! He was sweet, tentative, professional & went absolutely above & beyond to keep everyone aware of what was going on & everything running smoothly. He absolutely killed it! I am so grateful we went with the Black Tie upgrade so that we could hand pick him & have the chance to meet with him beforehand. Truly we could not imagine our wedding day without him! – The Old Town Road Couple 🙂
Jessika and Chad 6/22/19 – Intercontinental St. Paul Riverfront (Rick Ausland)
We had numerous reservations about planning a wedding in St. Paul while living in New York. We knew there would be challenges with selecting vendors since we weren’t local, but Instant Request seemed to be a solid option when we were looking at reviews and feedback from their previous clients. Since we were planning from afar, we decided to go with the Black Tie Service with Instant Request. We were assigned DJ Rick Ausland for our wedding and after meeting and working with Rick, we don’t think a better option could have been available! Rick responded to all emails and made us feel calm in the months leading up to the wedding. We had so many other things to worry about, and he constantly reassured us that we would be in good hands. We finally had a chance to FaceTime with Rick about three weeks before the wedding, and he took his time going over the Instant Request online form with us, answered all of our questions, gave us some ideas, and really made us feel comfortable that everything was going to be perfect on the day of the wedding. And you know what? Rick was right. He had all of the song choices ready to go for our ceremony and introductions. He had a plan for what kind of music to play as the dinner eventually segued into the reception. Once the dancing did start, the dance floor was never empty! We had songs that we wanted to hear, and Rick played them all. However, he also did a great job of reading the room and playing music that got our guests out of their seats. We had a perfect wedding day, and our experience with Rick and Instant Request DJ was definitely a big part of it. If you’re planning a wedding in the Twin Cities, these guys should be your first call when you’re looking for a DJ. If you’re lucky enough to get Rick, you’re in great hands and you’re going to have a great time!
Christina and Felipe 6/22/19 – Millennium Hotel (Anthony DuBose)
We chose the “Black Tie” package and had DJ Anthony D for our wedding. Anthony was recommended to us, and we loved being able to meet our DJ before the big day. My husband was very nervous about the music portion of our wedding and after meeting Anthony he was completely at ease, and all concerns were gone! Anthony had great communication leading up to the wedding and the online music planner was very easy to use and very thorough! Anthony did a lot of custom, fun stuff for us, including doing a WWE themed Grand March (with no hesitation!). The dance floor was PACKED the whole night of our wedding. Anthony did such a good job of reading the crowd and kept the vibe going all night long! We received so many compliments on Anthony and he truly made our night so much fun!! We 100% recommend Instant Request as a company and 1000% recommend Anthony!
Hayley and Kyle 6/22/19 – Almquist Farm (Andrew Najafalipour)
Andrew, our DJ through Instant Request was awesome!! He was timely in contacting us and getting an idea of what we wanted for the day, prompt in email replies, and friendly! Andrew was easy to work with, arrived early on the day, and listened to our requests and feedback. He had a great flow of music and was easy to work with. He listened to requests, and played songs when we wanted them. Very friendly and did AMAZING!!! It was reasonably priced, The online planner made it SO easy to plan our day, and the online payments were helpful! Instant Request was an outstanding DJ service!

Jimmy was fantastic! He personalized our wedding and it went off without a hitch. Thank you so much!
Olivia and Joe 6/21/19 – Loring Social (Obi Okeke)
My husband and I truly believe that our dance floor was packed until the venue kicked us out because of our DJ, Obi. He was a joy to work with on top of being very talented. He made great music selections based on what we wanted and had amazing transitions between songs. It was the perfect party!
Gretchen and Alex 6/21/19 – Como Park Zoo & Conservatory (Bret Christiansen)
Now that Gretchen and I are getting settled in our new home after our wedding and honeymoon, I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated you DJ-ing our wedding at Como Park Zoo. You truly were one of the best parts of our wedding and are a huge reason we had such a blast at our reception! You were exactly what we were looking for in a DJ – accommodating to our custom playlist, reading the crowd well, super respectful and professional and we enjoyed seeing you having fun as well! I hope you could tell that our friends and family appreciated you as well. We can’t thank you enough and we really appreciate you working with us! I will definitely be recommending you for others in search of an amazing DJ for their event.

Amazing job from start to finish! Incredibly easy to work with. They provided a completely customized experience that played to our style!
Rachel and Bryan 6/21/19 – Rush Creek Golf Club (Brandon Holland)
Brandon (DJ Caramel Sauce) was absolutely fantastic!! We had a lot of families with small kids at our wedding, so the first part of our dance was very family-friendly. Brandon kept the music clean and upbeat until later in the evening, when the adults still remaining were able to let loose on the dance floor. We loved our experience with Brandon and Instant Request and will definitely recommend them!
Heidi and Solomon 6/21/19 – Central Park of Maple Grove (Justin Roff)
Every aspect of our experience working with Instant Request was absolutely phenomenal! Matt was exemplary with communication and ensuring all questions were answered prior to our wedding and reception. I would HIGHLY recommend requesting Justin as your DJ as he blew all expectations out of the water. From the ceremony to the reception, every detail was on point. The dance floor was packed from the moment open dancing began until closing time. He was extremely professional and made sure all events ran smoothly and without a hiccup. If you are in search of a DJ service, look no further than Instant Request!
Courtney and Michael 6/21/19 – Minneapolis Event Center (Rick Ausland)
DJ Rick was awesome! We were very happy with our selection of Instant Request! My husband and I gave DJ Rick a list of songs we would like played but then gave him the reins to mix it up and read the crowd. He did a wonderful job and kept people on the dance floor till the lights turned on!!!!
Olivia and Ryan 6/21/19 – Hyland Park Chalet (Charlie DuBois)
DJ Charlie DuBois was so amazing! He was very nice, personable, and professional. He knew when to play what songs so that everyone could participate throughout the wedding. I only wish we could have had more time to dance!

Alex was the DJ for our wedding. He was a professional the whole night and I was glad we picked Instant Request DJ. He also did a great job engaging the guests to get up and dance.

We would like to say thank you a million times for how amazing you were for our wedding at Craguns! Tom was absolutely amazing! I received so many compliments on having Tom as our DJ! We along with our guests had a fantastic time. He read the energy so well and played music to get the crowd excited and dancing! Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ!! Tom was a huge part in making our day everything we could have hoped for and we truly appreciate him! Hope your drive home wasn’t too hard that night! Thank you again! Thank you so much!
Hannah and Luke 6/15/19 – Seven Vines Vineyard (David James)
We had an AWESOME experience with our DJ. David was great and understood the vibe we wanted to go with from the very beginning. We left our initial meeting with him feeling very good and were even more pleased after the wedding. David was kind, funny and made sure people were on the dance floor all night. I would recommend DJ David to anyone!
Megan and Drew 6/15/19 – Brackett’s Crossing Country Club (Charlie DuBois)
Charlie was the DJ at our wedding and he was AWESOME! Charlie took all of our ideas into consideration, and had great ideas himself. He was so helpful, and even secretly helped my dad pull off a surprise during his speech. Charlie had the dance floor PACKED until the final song of the night. He had a great playlist of different genres for everyone to dance to. Can’t thank him or recommend him enough!
Lizzie and Brent 6/15/19 – Minneapolis Event Center (Michael Majerowicz)
Planning our DJ experience with Instant Request was very easy. Their online planning tool helped us iron out timeline, figure out grand march entrances, and find songs we truly wanted to hear – not just a hodge-podge of “popular” wedding songs. We went with the black tie package so they did a great job selecting a DJ they felt would work well for our needs, and DJ Milk did just that. I would highly recommend this company for both their help on the front end in selecting a DJ, and the actual work done by the DJ on the day-of. DJ Milk, was personable, quick to respond on email, available for calls whenever we requested one and EXTREMELY detail oriented. We had many compliments on the DJ afterwards. Great choices of music. Understood our wants as a couple for the dance floor, but also had a great feel of when to cut a song and start something fresh if the reaction wasn’t great for a particular song. He also did a great job of inserting personal touches throughout the night between the toasts and other special moments for both me and my wife. I would highly recommend his services.
Sarah and Andrew 6/15/19 – Bad Weather Brewing Company (Dave Kellner)
Our DJ was on time, polite and played great music all night long. I was asked to fill out an extensive survey for our event, and I neglected to do it. The DJ still provided us with a great time. 100% would recommend.
Carolyn and Sean 6/15/19 – Eden Prarie Garden Room (Dario Mejia)
He did a wonderful job! Thank you so much! We where really happy. Everyone had fun!
Emily and Patrick 6/15/19 – Machine Shop (Alex Knight)
We can’t say enough great things about Instant Request and especially our DJ Alex Knight! Alex was phenomenal to work with, he did a great job of reading the crowd and playing the right music to keep the dance floor full all night long. He stayed true to our playlist and style of music and incorporated songs that everyone loved. Following the wedding, we had so many people reach out to us to say our DJ was awesome, one of the best they have ever heard at a wedding!
Madeline and Zach 6/15/19 – Minneapolis Golf Club (John Butler)

Ashley and Carlton 6/9/19 – Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens (Rick Ausland)
We had DJ Rick for our wedding day. He was amazing to work with we had a phone consultation before our big day finalizing the detail of our reception. He could not have made our day more enjoyable and easy going. He followed our playlist and added some other songs that got everyone else dancing. We would highly recommend Instant Request for their events.
Emily and Matt 6/8/19 – Legacy Hill Farm (Charlie DuBois)
Thank you so much for being a part of our special day! The ceremony music was beautiful and we had the most amazing time dancing the night away, and we owe it all to you!

Thank you again for being a part of our happily ever after!
Cassie and Casey 6/8/19 – Solar Arts Build (Tom Coughlin)
We were referred to use Instant Request at our wedding and we are happy we did. DJ Tom was great and helped us on the phone go over last minute details before our wedding reception. Tom provided excellent service at our wedding reception. The day was amazing and Tom did a great job with the music! It was an awesome feeling knowing that we didn’t have to worry about how our DJ and dancing was going to be that night. Thanks for your great service!!!
Lindsey and Lucas 6/8/19 – Oak Ridge Hotel & Conference Center (Ray Bell Jr.)
Our original DJ was unable to make it to our wedding due to a medical emergency. When we got the phone call, as expected I was nervous but before I could really get panicky I saw our new DJ, Ray, setting up. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ray. Not only did he figure out what our requests were (some were last minute changes we had arranged with our original DJ) but Ray was also fun to work with, easy going and I could tell he truly enjoys working as a DJ. He had minimal time prepare but nailed what I was hoping for. My boss mentioned to me that our DJ seeme very fun and he loved the music choices. So thank you to Ray for saving our day and Instant Request for making it such a stress free transition. I couldn’t speak more highly of your company and of Ray!
Hannah and Austin 6/8/19 – Chaska Event Center (David James)
Our DJ was amazing!! He did such a great job. We had several guest comment in what a wonderful job he did. Thank you so much! Our DJ was David James, and it was the best experience we could have hoped for. He was super easy to work with, extremely friendly, and kept the dance floor popping the entire night! There was not a single moment when the dance floor wasn’t full. We have had multiple guests approach us and compliment how amazing the dance was, and a big part of that is because of David. Thank you for helping make our night special!!
Samantha and Ryan 6/8/19 – Calhoun Beach Club (Obi Okeke)
Obi did an awesome job! I really appreciate how he followed our taste preferences and kept the dance floor packed all night. I would recommend Obi at Instant Request to any friend/family member looking for a DJ
Natalie and Casey 6/8/19 – Edina Country Club (Anthony DuBose)
Our DJ was fantastic. He played great songs all night long. He had a great feel for the crowd and played the right songs to keep the dance floor full all night.

He is worth every penny and then some!! Please do yourselves and your guests a favor by working with Anthony!

Meghan and Paul 6/1/19 – Machine Shop (Alex Knight)
Alex Knight from Instant Request killed it. We had such a blast and no one left our wedding or the dance floor all night!!! Also, for my nerves, it was so nice to buy the whole package, so we got to talk before and Alex got to know our style. Super easy to work with, flexible and the whole process with Instant Request was a blast. I’ve used Instant Request in the past and wouldn’t pick any other DJ!! Thank you!
Katlyn and Daniel 6/1/19 – Oak Ridge Country Club (Tim Westrom)
We had the best experience with Instant Request! DJ Tim was so helpful and prepared. He was very responsive before the big day and he walked us through the whole night. He was able to really read the room for what songs to play! We would hands down recommend Instant Request for your next event.
Laura and Ryan 6/1/19 – St. James Hotel in Red Wing (Justin Roff)
Instant Request was wonderful to work with! When initially calling the office staff were willing to spend lots of time chatting, and helping me select what services would best meet my needs. I selected a Black Tie DJ and was very impressed with Justin R!! He kept the evening flowing, knew how to read the crowd, and made sure to hit all of our requests! It was super helpful to spend an hour chatting with Justin a few weeks before. I highly recommend Instant Request DJ Entertainment! Incredible services. Easy to work with.
Tori and Benjamin 6/1/19 – St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church (Zachary Bayerl)
DJ Zachary was awesome! He kept the dance floor moving all night and played music for all of the guests including Elvis Presley, 80’s music, and today’s hits. I would highly recommend!

We can not say enough good things about our experience with Instant Request DJ Entertainment. Booking the DJ and communicating with the company was seamless. Our photographer highly recommended DJ Jimmy B to us and he did an absolutely outstanding job! We never had an empty dance floor and we received numerous compliments from our guests both young and old! DJ Jimmy was great. I would and have already recommended him to multiple friends getting married in the near future. He did a great job at playing the songs we liked while keep everyone on the dance floor all night. If you like to dance and want your guests to have a great time, I would highly recommended booking with Instant Request!

Asha and Mike 5/26/19 – Minneapolis Institute of Art (Justin Roff)
We were thrilled to have Justin as our DJ through Instant Request’s Black Tie package. He did a fantastic job mixing Indian and American dance music all night, and the dance floor was packed throughout our reception. We got lots of comments about how great he was, and how much fun guests had at our wedding. We can’t say enough good things!
Bergit and Kyle 5/26/19 – Minneapolis Golf Club (Ben Nordquist)
Having Ben Nordquist with Instant Request be our DJ was one of our best wedding planning decisions we made! Ben is the best DJ in the Twin Cities and we had the dance party of our dreams! Instant Request has an online platform where you input songs that you like. It was a really fun wedding planning activity 🙂 And it’s awesome because it helps your DJ get to know you and your music tastes. They also ask about wedding reception traditions that you do or don’t want (glass clinking, dollar dance, bouquet toss, group dances, etc.) so it’s completely tailored to your wants. We had a call with Ben two weeks before our wedding and left feeling 100% confident that he understood our vision: have an amazing dance party. (We also gave him free reign to cut even our “must play” songs if he felt like the dance was fading.) He does an amazing job transitioning songs to keep the dance going. Also, we told him that we weren’t going to kiss when people clinked glasses and were just going to ignore it. He very thoughtfully proposed that if people were really insistent on clinking, that he jump on the mic and say something like “Okay. They’ll give you this one kiss, but then, that’s it.” (That’s exactly what happened! And because he’s delightfully cheery, the message was delivered with playfulness.) In order to request a DJ (and guarantee your requested DJ), you have to do the Black Tie DJ Reservation ($200 extra). So worth it! I’m sure all of the DJs at Instant Request are awesome, but Ben Nordquist is a 20 out of 10! Thank you Ben!!
Buck and Rose Planning 5/25/19 – Aria (Jamir Hopson)
As a wedding planner in the Minneapolis community, Instant Request is one of my favorite DJ teams to work with. I recently had the opportunity to work with DJ Jamir Hopson from the Instant Request team and he was so much fun to work with! Not only that- he was on top of it, professional, kind, and easy to work with. I highly recommend Instant Request for your wedding day needs!

Kesha and Nick 5/18/19 – Bloom Lake Barn in Shafer, MN (Kevin Fiedt)

Bridget did a wonderful job!

Some of my favorite memories will be dancing with my friends and family. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Laine and Daniel 5/18/19 – Refuge Golf Club (Jimmy Bogen)

Shannon and Zach 5/18/19 – Aria (Brandon Holland)
We used Instant Request for our wedding at Aria and they were absolutely AMAZING! Brandon Holland was our DJ and he was fantastic, he was very energetic and kept people on the dance floor all night long!

It was great. Paul did an awesome job. Highly recommend it for friends and family to use Instant Request DJ services.
Krista and Jeff 5/17/19 – Loring Social (Charlie DuBois)
We had an exceptional experience with Instant Request as we were lucky to work with DJ Charlie DuBois. We had a thoughtful and productive pre-wedding phone meeting. The day of, Charlie was everything we could have asked for–professional, attentive, laid-back and fun! We also opted to add up-lighting which enhanced the magical quality of our venue. Most importantly, our guests had a great time partying and dancing the night away. After a surprise bonus song, we left floating on cloud nine.
Danielle and Ben 5/11/19 – Steeplechase Event Center in Mazeppa, MN (Bret Christiansen)
We used Instant Request DJ Entertainment for our wedding DJ and we couldn’t be more happy!

He was very professional and our guests loved the music he played for us! We definitely recommend Instant Request DJ!
Laura and Steve 5/11/19 – Refuge Golf Club (Jordan Nanasy)
We really enjoyed working with Instant Request. We found their online planning tool very helpful and easy to use. Jordan was our DJ for our ceremony and reception. He was very professional and did a great job with the music selection. Our guests were very happy with the music and flow, and appreciated requests being played right away. He also did a great job of setting up, and then moving and re-setting up all of the equipment when we had to move the ceremony due to rain.
Elizabeth and Jacob 5/11/19 – Hutton House (David James)
DJ David was amazing. He kept the party going and the dance floor was packed all night long. Super impressed with his work.
Sara and Cody 5/11/19 – Mermaid (Derrick King)
DJ Derek King was amazing! This company was so easy to work with, loved their wedding website and super affordable! We were able to call our DJ a week before our wedding to talk about what we wanted for our wedding. Derek not only did an amazing job with our music but came out on the dance floor with us to join in the party for our last song! I highly recommend booking them for your wedding.
Amelia and Ryan 5/11/19 – Minneapolis Event Center (Charlie DuBois)
Charlie was AMAZING! We got so many compliments about how amazing the music and everything was, and it made me and my husband so happy to even see Charlie having so much fun during the reception at the DJ booth! 10/10 recommend!
Kara and Eric 5/11/19 – Turtles 1890 Social Centre (Alex Knight)
Alex was wonderful! Many guests kept commenting on how great he was. He kept the dance floor full all night. One of the best decisions we made was to upgrade to the black tie DJ service. I would recommend Alex to anyone!!!
Alisa and Dylan 5/4/19 – 5120 Restaurant and Onyx Bar (John Butler)
John did an amazing job at our wedding! He was so easy to reach when we had questions or last minute changes. He was such a nice and and upbeat DJ. My guests loved how easy it was to request songs! He even joined us on the dance floor! I felt like John really thought about our needs and what kind of song would work at the time to keep us and our guests happy! He really made our wedding unforgettable and so fun! Thank you so much John!!
Candice and Alex 5/4/19 – Minneapolis Marriott West (Obi Okeke)
We used Instant Request for our 5/4/19 wedding and so glad that we did. They have an online event planner where you put in the details for what you want and don’t want. Very easy to use and details the entire night. We did not do the Black Tie option so we did not know who our DJ was until about 3 weeks beforehand. We were lucky to get DJ Obi O who is a black tie DJ. He did so great with what we wanted and did not want. We also had additional cultural music we wanted and he incorporated this into the mix better than imagined. He did exactly what we wanted with interaction, music and overall atmosphere. I highly recommend not only Instant Request but also DJ Obi O!!!
Cori and Jared 5/4/19 – Bearpath Golf & Country Club (Andrew Najafalipour)
Andrew at Instant Request was great! He was very helpful and reassuring when we planned our reception music schedule. Andrew made sure he was ready to go right when my wedding party arrived and made the evening flow perfectly! He was respectful of our playlist and checked with me if he had any questions. Instant Request website made it so easy to plan out our wedding playlist! I’m so glad we chose Instant Request for our wedding day!
Marissa and Mike 5/4/19 – Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens (David James)
David was fantastic to work with and kept people dancing all night! The ceremony went perfectly as well! All around a great experience.
Lindsey and Kevin 5/4/19 – Interlachen Country Club (Jimmy Bogen)
Jimmy is the best DJ, couldn’t recommend him more to those hosting events! He goes above and beyond to personalize your special day. Not to mention how he interacts with the crowd and his attention to detail. Again, can’t say enough great things about Jimmy.
Maggie and Jared 5/4/19 – Minneapolis Golf Club (Justin Roff)
Justin was AWESOME!! The dance floor was packed ALL NIGHT!!!!
Michelle and Glenn 5/4/19 – Wayzata Country Club (Rick Ausland)
Thank you for providing entertainment at our wedding! Everything was perfect and professional!
Laura and Daniel 4/27/19 – Solar Arts Building (Justin Roff)
Justin was incredible. He was a great emcee throughout the night and played a selection of music that got everyone of our guests dancing. We had multiple people tell us they’ve never seen more people dancing throughout the night than at our wedding. That’s the ultimate compliment to Justin.
Claire and Toby 4/27/19 – Lowertown Event Center (Jimmy Bogen)
Jimmy was fantastic! The dance floor was packed all night and he played exactly the type of music we were looking for. We got a Black Tie DJ and couldn’t have been happier. The dance floor was packed all night and he played exactly the type of music we wanted.
Jenny and Michael 4/20/19 – Nicollet Island Pavilion (Anthony DuBose)
Anthony did an amazing job! He did a better job than we could have hoped for! He got the guests excited to dance and kept the party going! Going with the black tie option and being able to meet him before our wedding was the perfect way to go! We go to chat with him beforehand and we all made sure we were on the same page! I would recommend him to anyone!
Melissa and Chris 4/13/19 – Aria (Obi Okeke)
We hired Instant Request for our wedding at Aria. We chose Obi as our DJ and could not have made a better decision. He was so amazing to work with. He was extremely organized and helped make the wedding day run smoothly. He even went out of his way to talk to the people giving speeches and gave a quick tutorial on how to talk into the mic (they were not experienced public speakers and really appreciated his advice!). I had so many people come up and tell me how fun he was! He knew how to get the crowd involved and had the dance floor full all night. Hiring Obi as our DJ was one of the best decisions we made in the wedding process. I would highly highly recommend him!
Jenna and Kirk 4/13/19 – Calhoun Beach Club (David James)
DJ David and the Instant Request team were easy to work with and very affordable, given the outstanding dance floor we had! David was cool, with a confident, positive personality and many of my guests commented that it was the most fun they’d had dancing at a wedding with the best music (nothing lame, or old, at our request 😉
Tora and Matt 4/13/19 – Minneapolis Event Center (Justin Roff)
Everything was super easy with Instant Request! The online tool is a great resource to get all the details our DJ needed and it worked out perfectly. I would highly recommend this DJ service! Our DJ Justin was amazing!
Jill and Andrew 4/13/19 – Lafayette Club (Jimmy Bogen)
You surpassed my expectations. Our wedding was so fun because of you. I was worried that a DJ would be second best to a live band, but it wasn’t at all. You guys were over the top. Easy to work with and played all our requests. I highly recommend you to anyone wanting a great time.
Brittany and Louis 4/13/19 – Nicollet Island Pavilion (Anthony DuBose)
Anthony was amazing!! Months later and we still have guests talking about how awesome our DJ was and that the dance party never stopped!! THANK YOU for being apart of our special day!
Lauren and Justin 4/13/19 – Capitol Room in St. Peter (Andrew Najafalipour)
Our DJ listened to our preferences and made sure everyone was having a good time. He played from our playlist, took requests from the guests, as well as made excellent decisions from his own experience. Highly recommend!
Rachael and Brian 4/13/19 – Whitefish Lodge & Suites in Crosslake, MN (Ryan LaRue)
Ryan was excellent! He went way above and beyond to make our day run smoothly. From organizing our guests for photos, keeping us on track for time and just generally looking after us. The music was great, the setlist encompassed all of our requests and more. Which means I spent more time dancing with our guests than visiting with them. What a blast! Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ.
Kaitlin and Cole 4/13/19 – Lowertown Event Center (Charlie DuBois)
We loved our DJ (DJ Charlie)! He honestly was amazing he listened to all of our concerns and hopes for the evening and made sure they happened/didn’t happen. We got so many compliments about how great he was after the wedding. The dance floor was constantly full, he knew how to read the room and play the right songs to keep the party going. Would definitely recommend him!!!
Kristina and Nathan 4/5/19 – Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens (Charlie DuBois)
Charlie couldn’t have made it easier! He took care of everything and made the entire night run smooth. Just an all around awesome guy.
Brittany and Matt 3/30/19 – Minneapolis Golf Club (Obi Okeke)
Everyone thought the singing a song for a kiss was a blast during the dinner, which was our DJs idea! Obi started the reception off right and kept people dancing all night!
Stephanie and Daniel 3/30/19 – Landmark Center (Charlie DuBois)
It was an amazing experience. We ended up having someone try and come to the wedding that was not invited and the DJ was the first to notify me of the situation and said that he was already getting security to handle the issue. I thought this was top notch service and he truly cared about our night. I also had requested a song but did not know the name of it. He went out of his way to try and search the song and be able to play it. 5 stars for sure and would book again!
Yeongseo and Jordan 3/23/19 – Oak Glen Golf Club (Obi Okeke)
We picked Instant Request for our wedding reception in Stillwater, MN and we were very pleased with our DJ (DJ Obi). Obi did a great job communicating with us before the wedding, he personalized his services to what we wanted, and he kept the dance floor full all night. We strongly recommend DJ Obi and Instant Request.
Lindsey and Nathan 3/2/19 – 413 on Wacouta Event Center (Jimmy Bogen)
We LOVED our DJ, Jimmy Bogen! Amazing! Look no further. Instant Request was super easy to work with and has an easy interface to get your DJ all the info that they will need for your perfect day. I would pay the Black Tie extra cost and get Jimmy. He was an amazing DJ and kept people dancing for 3.5 hours straight! This was a super important part of our wedding and he knocked it out of the park. Just as an FYI you will just have one meeting with your DJ about 2 weeks before the wedding. Leading up till then you can work on filling out your wedding details. This process worked just perfectly for us! DJ Jimmy will have your back 100000% and we were so lucky to have him! People danced all night and we had the best time EVER! We loved Instant Request!
Chelsea and Tyler 2/23/19 – Muse Event Center (Charlie DuBois)
We couldn’t have better things to say about Instant Request, particularly our DJ-DJ Charlie D. Charlie was amazing to work with. He was very responsive via e-mail prior to the wedding and kept the communication open through the entire process. He met us at a nearby restaurant prior to the wedding and was very helpful in assisting us structure our day – from the moment he was on the clock, to the last song at the end of the night. He was very receptive to our ideas and had many other good suggestions from other experiences – plenty of great input on how to set our day perfectly. Instant Request had everything we could ever ask for and more! Even helped get SKOL chant goin! Instant request has a talented group of DJs. Their equipment and technology appears to be top of the line. Their website has a great catalog of songs and an event planner that helps organize everything from cocktail music, to introductions, to speeches, to the do not play list and to the must play songs. The event planner really helped organize the timeline of events that follow the ceremony (or starting with the ceremony) and the process of beginning to paint the picture for our wedding day. We were told that any songs not in their library, they should be able to add them provided there is a copy available on iTunes or YouTube. When the day finally came, everything that we envisioned came to life and Charlie was a huge part of that! What is most important to Charlie was that whatever made us happiest – and he made sure to take care of whatever that was! We trusted him to keep the flow of the night exactly how we and the guests wanted it to be, but if we wanted something, he was there to deliver it for us. I couldn’t be happier with Instant Request! If you are going with the black-tie option, I would recommend you select DJ Charlie D 10 out of 10 times. Skol
Chandra and Mark 2/16/19 – The Park Ballroom (Tom Coughlin)
Instant Request was extremely organized and diligent with how they communicated with us, their online reception planner was the perfect way for me to give them all the information they needed to make our wedding night perfect! I love how they set us up with a DJ that best suited our wedding atmosphere, and LOVED that we were able to create our own music playlist. Our DJ did an excellent job with running the reception and was great about any last minute changes we had leading up to the wedding.

Justine and Mike 2/8/19 – Best Western Premier-Nicollet Inn (David James)
We chose the black tie package and we love our DJ! He kept the music going, was open to requests and also took our list of music and played everything that was a must for us. I would definitely, and have already, recommend Instant Request DJ to any future brides/grooms getting married or even if you’re looking for a DJ for an event. The speeches, prayer and instructions were all laid out for our guests and they knew what was happening the whole night!
Rebecca and Aaron 2/2/19 – The Neu Neu Event Center (Charlie DuBois)
Our DJ was absolutely FANTASTIC! Charles made sure things ran smoothly and went through all the finer details thoroughly with us beforehand. We had a first-time officiant (friend) and he made sure to connect with him before the ceremony to make him feel comfortable. The music was the perfect mixture of old and new to keep people dancing all night. Thank you so much for making this process simple!

We truly enjoyed and appreciated the professionalism and expertise from Instant Request. Please also send our regards to Charlie. He was such a phenomenal DJ and our guests loved the dancefloor – we did too. He also took so much care in our ceremony, it was absolutely perfect. He was fantastic to work with and he did such a seamless job working with the Lynhall staff and our coordinator. Our wedding day was just unforgettable and Charlie brought the energy and talent we had hoped for. Charlie – Thank you soooo much for your fantastic DJ’ing of our wedding, it was such a memorable night and you helped really elevate the night from the ceremony, to reception and to making for a fun and crowded dance floor. Our friends and family had a blast dancing at the end of the night…and as you saw, no one wanted to leave at close! Thanks for being so accommodating with our few day-of requests. Thank you for making our wedding day such a memorable and fun day. Thank you!
Miriam and Paulo 1/26/19 – Campus Club of the University of Minnesota (Alex Knight)
Alex K did a great job at DJing at our wedding! He kept the energy going with a mix of American and Persian music and even a little bit of Portuguese! He made sure to play some of the songs from our own playlist as well as other songs to complement our selection. He was very accommodating to guests’ song requests and at the same time, respected our wishes in terms of songs not to play. Overall, he understood what we wanted for our wedding night and made sure it was carried through. Thank you!
Samantha and Jessica 1/26/19 – 5120 Restaurant and Onyx Bar (Jimmy Bogen)
Really loved our experience – the DJ was great, kept the energy up and got most of our guests to the dance floor, young and old. He really listened to our requests, even the weird ones, haha, and had great suggestions as well. Wonderful experience for a great price – can’t recommend enough!
Laura and Mitchell 1/26/19 – Rochester Golf and Country Club (Anthony DuBose)
Our DJ for our wedding was Anthony D, and he exceeded all of our expectations! We were blown away by his talent. He was very receptive to our needs and so much fun to work with. Anthony kept the dance floor packed the whole night; many of our guests commented to us that they had never seen a dance floor so full for an entire event. We highly recommend Instant Request and DJ Anthony D!
Tara and Jake 1/19/19 – Olde Coliseum in Richmond, MN (Andy Gensch)
We wanted to leave a quick note regarding our experience with Instant Request and our DJ. We had the pleasure of having Andy G as our DJ. He did an amazing job! He was professional, polite, fun and genuinely worked to make our day run as smoothly and as perfectly as we had hoped. We had numerous comments from guests on how well Andy did with both the sound and the music that was played. We highly recommend Instant Request and DJ Andy! The online event planner was incredibly easy to use and made us feel so organized. In addition, Andy was great at making sure we had open communication prior to our wedding in case we needed anything. We are so grateful that we made the decision to have Instant Request be a part of our day. Thank you DJ Andy! It was a great pleasure to work with you!
Anna and Ryan 1/19/19 – Interlachen Country Club (Justin Roff)
Our DJ Justin R was outstanding at our wedding reception. Very professional with a comforting style. Full dance floor all night long. Justin helped with questions about the website and spent a fair amount of time with us. The evening was special and Justin helped make that happen. Thank you Justin!
Hannah and Ross 1/19/19 – St. James Hotel in Red Wing (Jimmy Bogen)
We had an awesome experience with Jimmy B and Instant Request! Through Jimmy and the online planner we were able to easily design how we wanted our ceremony and reception to sound and the results were exactly what we wanted. Jimmy was very personable and a great MC that was able to keep people dancing the entire night.
Christina and Alexander 1/12/19 – Lafayette Club (Rick Ausland)
I wanted to shoot you a quick note and let you know how impressed we were by Rick at our wedding. We had very high expectations headed into our wedding. Somehow Rick surpassed those extremely lofty expectations. Rick accommodated each and every one of our unique song requests and even used his expansive skill set to tailor our first dance into a memory that will last a lifetime. The dance floor was PACKED from the moment Rick began his playlist after dinner. Several our of guests reached out after the wedding and mentioned how spectacular our DJ was. We will be recommending Rick to all of our family and friends going forward.
Mary Jo and Ben 1/12/19 – New City Covenant Church (Obi Okeke)
Was great to have Obi dj our wedding in January. He made the party live and made it a night to remember! I would recommend Obi to anyone looking for a DJ who brings spice and funk to the dance floor! Big Thanks too my guy Obi!
Claire and Alex 1/5/19 – Hewing Hotel (David James)
David was our wedding DJ and did an incredible job! He asked about our music preferences and what vibe we were going for in advance and executed perfectly. He was extremely professional, super fun, and I would recommend him and Instant Request to everyone!
Tania and Brandon 1/5/19 – Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West in Plymouth (Alex Knight)
Everyone was dancing on the dance floor. Our Dj for our wedding alex knight was amazing. He listened to my husband and I, he came up to us to let us know what was going on, and he kept people on the dance floor!
Abbey and Federico 1/5/19 – St. Paul College Club (Bengi Durgunoglu)
We did the black tie option…Amazing experience! Benji was the best! We talked once over the phone before the wedding and he was so organized, asking all of the right questions to get the whole evening planned from cocktail hour to first dance to entrances and speeches and even asking what we would want for the last song of the night. He even went out of his way to get to know us before the wedding and to understand and accommodate our crazy requests (my husband is from another country and we wanted some specific music/traditions at the dance). He was in tune with the crowd – if he noticed people leaving, he knew to switch the song or change it up naturally. The dance floor was packed until the end of the night and people told me that this was the most fun they had at a wedding dance.
