We had a wonderful time working with Instant Request! Specifically Joey Atkinson. My husband and I are stationed in Germany so planning a wedding was a challenge. They were so patient and easy to work with.
We had them do our ceremony and reception music and everything turned out perfectly. Joey was able to read the crowd really well and was very entertaining. We had a pretty small turn out but the night ended with the family singing along to the music and dancing out on the dance floor. Everyone had a wonderful time and we created some memories we will never forget!

Absolutely AMAZING! Our DJ Justin Roff by far exceeded our expectations! Instant Request was very quick to respond to all of our emails and even set up an initial meeting to meet with us and answer our questions. We are so happy with the way things turned out - our guests were on the dance floor all night long and many of them complimented us on our DJ and song list. Highly recommend!

Instant Request DJ Entertainment was a wonderful company to hire for our wedding. Everyone we worked with was friendly and very professional. Their Event Planner was an amazing tool to use, which allowed us to organize how we wanted our reception to go and which songs we wanted to make sure were played. The Event Planner also matched us to our DJ, Jason, who was nothing but wonderful. He made sure we were ready for main events of the night, such as speeches, dances, bouquet toss, garter toss and cake cutting. Also, since we were married in March, they gave us an amazing price! We were so happy we went with them for our DJ!

Instant request's staff was great from booking all the way until the last song. Not pushy at all, so accomidating, flexible, and affordable! The song choice was great, the DJ (Zach) went above and beyond to find the unique songs we requested. The uplighting was beautiful also affordable. Zach was very professional and the set up looked really nice. We had a great time!

We used Instant Request for our wedding in October and absolutely loved them! They did a great job communicating with us prior to the wedding, and the online tool that they have to help you plan songs for the day is amazing!! It made it so easy for my fiance and I to coordinate the music choices for the evening.

Our DJ Derek was amazing as well! He played everything we asked for, did an incredible job reading the crowd, and kept the party going all night! Not only was Derek extremely easy to work with, he was really fun and had a great high energy (without being over the top). Everyone loved Derek, and thought he did a great job making sure everyone had an awesome time!

I really enjoyed working with Instant Request for the reception of my wedding. I wanted to play different music than what Instant Request offered for dinner and they allowed me to bring an iPod and hook it up to their system and play my own playlist. They were flexible, professional, and easy to work with. The online event planner worked really well and I was nice knowing that I could choose the style of music and the songs that I did or did not want to be played at my wedding and they would listen. Overall, I had a great experience and would definitely use Instant Request again!

Working with Instant Request was stress-free and convenient. Their customized song list helped to ensure we would be loving all the music played that night. We were paired with Alex Knight, who was very professional and a great DJ. He added a great selection of songs to complement our preferences and had everyone dancing the entire night. He even threw in a few mash-ups, which everyone loved!

The DJ for our wedding, provided by Instant Request, was phenomenal!! Our DJ got everyone out of their seats and onto the dance floor. I've been to A LOT of weddings and people usually take dancing breaks in between songs. Not with Instant Request! Everyone was on the dance floor! Instant Request has a online event planner which made it easy for me to select songs that I really wanted played. It also provided Instant Request with what kind of vibe I wanted at my wedding reception so that they could pick the best DJ that best suited my needs. They picked an amazing DJ! (I'm not exaggerating.) My friends and family loved him! Do yourself a favor and book your DJ with Instant Request.

Our DJ Zach Vinge was simply amazing. Before the wedding we had filled out their online event planner and Zach followed everything as we requested. He did a fantastic job at reading the crowd and playing songs that they would enjoy. We had people on the dance floor until 1am! He was so professional and always checked in with either myself or the groom before allowing certain requests from guests. He was so genuine and not at all cheesy, I couldnt have asked for a better DJ experience.

Great customer service and value. Our DJ helped create a fun mood to encourage dancing and crowd participation, but not in a cheesy way. He played music from our custom song list and made sure to include guest requests. I asked him to fade out the song for the father daughter dance, which was done subtly and at just the right time. Also, we had a very intoxicated guest that wanted to make a speech and our DJ was able to handle that situation tactfully and discreetly.

There are a few things you need to have an amazing vendor for, you need good food, a great photographer and the perfect music! Music is such a big deal - it starts your wedding day as the guests arrive and it ends the night with the perfect send-off song to everyone. It's the difference maker - that's why my husband and I cancelled our contract with a vendor and signed with Instant Request for our DJ... and they were ah-mazing!

They booked our event 14 days prior to the wedding - and the DJ we got (Joey A.) was awesome! He had the right amount of personality, extremely friendly and kind and did everything he could (including help with some flowers) to make the day perfect! My husband and I wanted a unique grand March (who doesn't?!) and we found a online clip of a college Cheer that we wanted to enter to - our DJ was able to get the clip and play it for the grand march! It was a one-of-a-kind sound that I was for sure we couldn't get, but he made it happen. Also - I was far from a bridezilla, I let things just play out and was pretty relaxed about it all, so the week before was super busy trying to track everything down and I wasn't able to connect with our DJ before the Wedding day, it didn't matter, Joey showed up early and had everything he needed a response on organized - we nailed out the details about 30 minutes before the ceremony and everything was perfect the whole evening.

I would highly recommend Instant Request (who allows you to make your music selections online as well as review DJ's profiles) and I would strong encourage you to request Joey A - he was awesome!

Instant Request has been such a wonderful vendor to work with. From our first contact all the way through, they have been nothing but helpful, attentive, and professional. They went out of their way to do things for us to make our day perfect. I loved having an online database to chose our music and set everything up all in one place. We were paired up with Charlie T and it was an absolutely perfect fit. Charlie is so nice and fun, he played a great selection of music and seriously has a 6th sense when it comes to feeling the crowd! We were all there until 2 in the morning, we didn't want to leave! We could have gone all night. Thank you Charlie and Instant Request for making our wedding such a fun, crazy, perfect party!!

Jason Q was the BEST. We seriously cannot say enough about him. We were on the fence about even having a professional DJ, and was hesitant when reading the reviews- they seemed too good to be true. Last minute we decided to book, and it was one of the best decisions we could have made. Jason played danceable Mo-town music all night and got everyone of all ages dancing. Our friends and family are still saying incredible he was. He's not only a great DJ, but the nicest guy- our wedding party all commented that we wanted to be friends with him.

We were a bit nervous because the ceremony was held at a private residence so power supply and space were a bit finicky. We requested music for only cocktail hour and reception, which means he'd be setting up while everyone was in the backyard for the ceremony. There would be no one there to give direction on location or if something went wrong. After taking photos though, my husband and I went to join our guests in the front yard. Jason was all set up in the perfect spot and already had music going. The energy of the party was set, and we knew it was going to be a good night.

Again, book JASON Q. Best decision we made for our party.

YOU NEED THESE GUYS! This is a FABULOUS group to work with; they know their stuff and if you know exactly what you want, they can do it. Even during the wedding, when things were slightly falling behind, our DJ, Hnub, went with the flow and it went perfectly. He also felt the mood and changed the songs depending on who was on the floor. Also, at the end of the night we felt bad because he was doing everything right, playing fabulous music and he explained that he has seem it where Friday weddings, people seem to head home sooner... totally made sense! He was great; they were amazing to work with. LOVE THEM! If I EVER need a DJ for anything ever again, I'm going through them!

Instant Request was not only our DJ but supplied the most incredible lighting in our venue that gave it the WOW factor. Nate was our DJ and he was perfect-he really knows music and people! He knew the right songs to get everyone on the dance floor and even mixed in some from our ipod. Even our 80 year old Nana was on the dance floor after midnight! Nate was very accommodating and even stayed a little longer...well he didn't have a choice, there was no way we were going to let him stop playing that music!

He also played music for the ceremony, that was also very well done. I am super happy we added the lighting package. It really helped complete the look for the reception.

My DJ was awesome. Instant Request assigns a DJ to your event then he/she contacts you with questions on how to make the day perfect. They also have you fill out a questionnaire to figure out what kind of music you like and would want to be apart of your day. I thought that they did a very good job and made sure we got everything we asked for.

Instant Request never fails. We had been to several weddings with Instant Request. Every experience has been awesome. So naturally, we hired them for our wedding. Anthony did an awesome job on our night. Our guests raved about the music played which is always awesome to hear. He even came out on the dance floor (per our request) to dance with us!

We also had up-lighting services through Instant Request. It transformed our golf club ballroom into a dramatic atmosphere. The raspberry color was AWESOME! Future brides if you're looking for something to help transform a space think about adding up-lighting! Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed working with you and your team. Everyone was very informative, helpful, responsive and friendly. The Event Planner was perfect for us, especially since we were planning the wedding from abroad. It not only helped us with the music selection, but the organization for the entire day. I don't think the day would have ran as smoothly without the planner. It made us think of every little detail from first dance song to order of speeches. Our DJ Tim, was spectacular. He was the perfect fit for our group. Not only did Tim keep everyone on the dance floor all night long, but he kept my husband and I on top of things. We were supposed to do our first dance right after the grand march, but we got so caught up in everything that we just sat down! Tim came to the rescue and asked us politely if we still wanted to do the dance at that time. He was very professional, organized and his personality was very similar to ours so it was a perfect match. We also used the uplighting you provide and it was fantastic. It gave the Minneapolis Golf Club a lovely ambiance! Overall, we were extremely satisfied with your service and would highly recommend you to any of our friends.

Instant request was such a good choice. They were very inexpensive, and they played only the music that we like. We took the time to carefully fill out their survey and it was worth it. The wedding dance songs went great, they let us use their microphone for the speeches and the DJ was perfect for us. We didn't want a super obnoxious guy who is on the microphone all night or forces us to do some cheesy game we don't want to do, so for us it was perfect. He was very professional and everyone was dancing all night.

I'm so glad that we chose to go with Instant Request as our wedding DJ. The online music playlists were very helpful, and the entire experience went smoothly. We ordered uplighting through them as well, and it turned out perfect! It really added to the reception decor. Travis Monroe was our DJ, and he did a phenomenal job. He made sure he uderstood what we wanted & didn't want, and always checked with us on the evening schedule to make sure we were still on track. He really worked the room & everyone loved the music choices!

We had a great experience working with Instant Request and our DJ, Justin was awesome! We spoke to him a few days before the wedding and told him that we wanted a fun, energetic night and we wanted people to stay and dance all night long. He made sure that everyone had a blast and that the dance floor was packed all night long. I love that you can make your own playlist at instant request and the DJ's will add additional music to compliment your selections. We had a great experience with instant request and we would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or event!

We would highly recommend Instant Request! We worked with DJ Ryan and he was great! He called me a week before the wedding to make sure we were on the same page with everything. He knew exactly what we were looking for in a DJ and he worked his magic and had people dancing all night long. People are still telling us how much fun they had at our reception!

From the minute I requested a quote from Instate Request, they were prompt, helpful and professional. We had a great meeting with them to get things set up, and they picked the perfect DJ (Scott) for us as well. EVERY guest was up and dancing at some point, even the people who say they never dance. Scott was very accommodating and calm, he made last minute changes as we needed without any problem, and was overall fantastic! We had several people tell us it was the best reception they have been to, and that was largely due to Scott.

Our DJ, Mark, was great throughout the entire event. He set up the sound speaker system for the ceremony as well as DJ'd the dinner and dancing part of the evening. When the father of the bride wasn't feeling well and had to go lie down for a while, he was flexible in holding the father/daughter dance until later in the evening. It was a great event and we thank Mark for helping to make it that way. Also, thanks to the online event planner which helped us to map out what was going to happen during the event.

Nate from Instant Request was a great asset to our wedding. Professional, responsive, and knows what he is doing. These guys cannot be replicated by an iPod, they will do exactly what the bride and groom want whether that be playing a specific playlist or 'feeling' the crowd and knowing what to play next. Lighting was amazing as well, Instant Request earns their money!

Instant Request was absolutely fabulous. Our DJ, Joe, was amazing from beginning to end. We booked Instant Request to do our ceremony music, as our venue was a golf club, and also our reception and Joe, our DJ, did a great job. The reception was *AMAZING*. He kept people on the floor all night, which was my biggest concern. There is nothing worse than going to a wedding reception and the DJ can't take a hint, and people leave the dance floor - thankfully, we had the exact opposite problem: people wouldn't leave the dance floor! It was great! The online service you use to plan your ceremony/reception music prior to the wedding is so thorough and allows you to be really involved if you choose to be (which was excellent for me, as I was very picky with the music I wanted played). I can not thank Instant Request enough - they did an excellent job. Ask for Joe, he's great!

Our DJ Travis did an amazing job! We could not have asked for more! He got us perfectly!! Everybody was dancing--from my high school and college friends to our parents and even our grandparents were dancing the entire time!! Everybody said that the DJ was amazing!!

He was very relaxed, considerate, super fun and casual. At the end of the night he stayed an extra 30ish minutes after he was supposed to because there were still a lot of people dancing! We really like how he asked us what we wanted at our reception. He was engaged with our guests and we really like how he enjoyed the photobooth as well. It was so nice seeing that he was able to get away from the music for a few seconds to leave us a message in our photobooth book so that we will always know who played the perfect classical rock for our wedding!!

Jeremy did a great job of playing our list, taking requests, and checking in with us on a as needed basis to check how everything was going. The most touching part, towards the end of the evening he wrote us a hand written note thanking us for the business, and allowing him to be a part of our day! I would recommend Instant Request anytime!

He had the perfect amount of interaction with the guests and was very professional but extremely fun. The sound and lighting was perfect. We didn't want anything over-the-top and the lights were just the right touch. I still can't believe that we received such wonderful service for such a reasonable price.

We had the best experience with Instant Request! This company was recommended by a friend so we went with them and could not have been happier. Our DJ, Kjell, was phenomenal! We have family and friends that LOVE to dance and he kept all generations on the floor and bustin a move all night long. People did not want to stop dancing - they had to kick us out of there. This company is so professional, very responsive and attentive, great to work with, and we felt so comfortable heading into our big day knowing that we had a great DJ. And then he blew our expectations out the roof - it was so great. People were talking about our DJ for weeks! Thank you Instant Request!

I used Instant Request for my Mill City Museum wedding in August 2012. The DJ we worked with was Justin Roff, he was amazing! We had a very complicated, multicultural ceremony and reception and he pulled it off seamlessly. He was very accommodating and professional. Leading up to the wedding, I had a lot of last minute requests for songs and Instant Request was very reactive and was able to get me the obscure songs requested by my foreign family in time for the wedding. When it came to the lights and slide show, I didn't know where it would look best or what to do with them, so Justin/Instant Request made those choices for me, I showed up and it was all set up beautifully. Working with them was stress free and easy. They were very organized and professional. They were very reasonably priced and I would have paid a lot more to receive the same service from them again. The DJ was one of my biggest concerns because I had been to weddings where bad music and a bad flow can make an event boring for the guests. The music was great, our dance floor was full all night. We made some suggests but not many, Justin was able to guide us through his experience of what was best to get the party going and it worked beautifully. I would highly recommend them to anyone, you wont regret using them! If I host any parties again in the future, I will 100% use them again!

Instant request did a great job for our wedding! It was so easy to planning using their online planning and the DJ was very flexible and listened to what we wanted. One thing that really made them different than other DJ companies we had talked to is they weren't "salesy," they simply talked to us about how they work and let us ask questions.

Instant Request was awesome. They were very quick with responses to emails and phone calls. I got a quote which was based on a deal they had going on at the time, and then forgot about it, and when I remembered it months later, and asked about it, they honored the original quote. Which is, obviously, awesome, and a great start. Their online event planner was really user-friendly and had a ridiculous number of songs. I found every song I wanted to hear in their collection. You're assigned a DJ based on your completed event planner a week before the event. We were assigned DJ Charlie. He was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted someone energetic, but not crazy and over the top, and who would interact with the guests when necessary but not pester them. Charlie fit that description to a t. He checked with us before taking requests (which I'd requested) and was great at gauging what the crowd needed to keep them dancing. He did a really excellent job. I'm extremely pleased with my experience with Instant Request.

We had a perfect experience with Instant Request. I loved being able to choose how hands-on (or not) we were with the music selection and special dances. We were initially reluctant to hire a DJ and planned to do the music ourself for fear that we would end up with some tacky, over-the-top DJ but after working with Instant Request, we had a great experience with the perfect amount of tasteful crowd interaction and are very glad we hired a professional. Our DJ Makai is wonderful and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

What a great DJ service! We had months prior to the wedding to set everything up online. Every detail was addressed. They were professional and put genuine effort into making sure our reception was exactly what we wanted. One week prior to the wedding I received a call from our DJ and he went through every step with me to make sure we were on the same page. One detail I really liked was that when we arrived at the reception hall, our DJ was waiting at the door for us (the entire wedding party, plus some) to keep everything organized and on time. He did a great job. We highly recommend.

The Instant Request matched us with a DJ that understood our choices. We had a mix of dance/party music with some oldies and some Salsa - I was curious how this combo would turn out and it was great!

I was super happy with Instant Request. My mom found them online and we went with them because their price for a Friday night wedding was very reasonable.

On their website, they allow to create playlists and pick which songs you don't want them to play. It was very easy to use and you don't have to finish it until a month before the wedding. Our DJ, Michael, called us a few weeks before the wedding to make sure we didn't have any questions. He was very professional, wearing a suit and tie that actually ended up matching our colors. The dance floor was packed all night!

I don't know why anyone would use any other DJ company!!! They are fantastic!!! In fact, I have two girlfriends that signed contracts with these guys after attending my wedding. I think the top reasons why I loved Instant Request (special thanks to Matt V!!!!!) were their professionalism and accommodation to what we wanted for our reception. Instant Request really got it right with their "Party Planner" -- an IN DEPTH online organizer that me & my now husband filled out together prior to our big day. This planner was AWESOME to help us address flow questions about our day that we may have never considered had we not gone with this DJ! It really made for a smoothly flowing reception that was just easy and perfect!!! Another huge plus to these guys is that they have DJ's that will accommodate to your preferred style -- I personally really just wanted a DJ that would be professional, read the crowd really well, not have too much interaction but to make the appropriate announcements at the right times & play the right songs for the mood of the night -- and that is EXACTLY what he did!!!! A huge compliment I got about them after the fact from a guest was that they had started playing a song that had some people exiting the dance floor...but then our DJ Matt V SMOOTHLY transitioned into the next song right away rather than let it play out -- he KEPT THE PARTY ALIVE!!! -- in fact, by the end of our dance my groom & I were up in the air on the shoulders of our guests shouting "Sweet Caroline"....absolutely a memory we will never forget. Matt V truly knows what he is doing & if you want a DJ that you can trust to read situations & conduct themselves professionally--- I just cannot recommend them enough!!!!

I don't have even one bad word to say about anyone at Instant Request. They were ultra friendly and helpful. They sent me email reminders and when they said they would call to check in...they did. I also found the online program they have to be amazing. it takes some time to complete but you have total control if you want it but you also have the option of being less hands on and letting your DJ do his or her thing. I would use Instant Request again in a heart beat and recommend them to everyone! I heard about them from a friend who used them for her wedding and now I'm passing on the word as well.

Their Wedding Planner is wonderful... it is an in-depth planner which allows you to customize the type of reception you would like, you can pick anything from what to play during the cocktail hour and dinner to giving them your must plays and your do not plays! They then look at your planner and fit you with a DJ, which ensures you are going to matched up with a DJ that really fits your style. Our DJ was amazing and he had the dance floor packed all night. And I was expecting to pay a lot less for a DJ then I did for them, since they charge one flat fee for all night (which is an added bonus!)

We got married at The History Center in St. Paul - a venue that can be difficult acoustically. Knowing that the dj's at Instant Request had experience in that room gave me a sense of ease.

The online event planner was very helpful. It gave us a chance to go through and not only pick out a play list but a host of other details about the day that I may have otherwise overlooked. We had several months to work our way through it, and given how crazy those months were, I appreciated the lack of pressure.

Damian, our dj, contacted us right on schedule. He and I were able to work through the details and when some big parts of the details changed, he worked through that with me.

He was on time and professional. He was able to provide music for dinner (on the second floor) and move upstairs for the dance - it was so seamless that I didn't even realize it happened. Our guests had a great time dancing and really enjoyed the evening.

Thank you Instant Request and thank you Damian!

Nick was a great fit for us as a DJ. He played whichever songs we requested, was fun but laid back. Instant request is nice because they have an online event planner where you can give all of your information over time as you decide which songs will be first dance songs and which crowd participation songs you would like and wouldn't like. We allowed guests to make requests and Nick did a great job of asking us if it was ok to play those requests. The music at our reception was exactly what we wanted. Thanks Nick & Instant request!

I had to make a lot of decisions during the planning process for our wedding but the best decision I made was choosing Instant Request. They were the most caring, professional, genuine, flexible and fun company I have ever worked with. They answered all of my questions and helped me feel completely comfortable and confident in every decision. We were able to choose our own playlist which was wonderful. However, even after playing all the songs we seleted, our DJ (Kjell) knew exactly what type of music we wanted played. He kept the dancefloor packed the entire evening. My husband and I had family and friends say it was the best wedding they had ever been to and we have Instant Request to thank for this. If you would like a DJ to play for your wedding, select Instant Request you will not regret it and you will have the time of your life!

We now know why they are constantly rated at the top for music. They were so professional not only booking the job, but also the day of the wedding. They played a great selection of music at dinner (we could have picked it out, but allowed them to do it), and they played all of the songs that we wanted them to.

Instant Request DJ made everything so easy, which was great with everthing else we had to deal with and had going on. They listened and provided exactly what we wanted, how we wanted it. We had no complaints at all. While other weddings we've attended this year have had an issue or two with their music, or the amount of control they had over what was played, we had no such mishaps or issues. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

My husband and I got married in June and we had hired Instant Request for our DJ services. I had met Nathan Anderson at a bridal fair and asked for him to be our guy. We talked before the big day and he found out what we wanted, he also helped with some decisions we needed advice on. Everything was AMAZING! People were dancing all night, myself included! :) Nate had someone with him and I can't think of his name, but the two did an awesome job. They were professional but also a ton of fun! To you brides out there, this is a great company to work with! One more note, the online tools make everything fun and easy which is really nice.

He played the best variety of music, that the dance floor was completely packed the whole night! He said that he has never seen a wedding dance floor packed for the whole night! It was great, we will refer instant request to all of our friends and family for future/upcoming weddings!

He was very professional and did a great job announcing and making sure that everything ran smoothly. We had discussed the last song to be played but my husband and I left a half an hour before that and he found me to make sure that I was there for the song and announced our exit. He kept us dancing all night and did such a great job!!!

I would highly recomend Instant Request for any Bride who wants a very professional sound system and DJ, but doesnt have endless funds. Not only was it super easy in the pre-planning stages, but our DJ Reid was fantastic day of! He made everything so smooth, interacted well with us and our guests, played a great variety of fun music (slow/fast & all age appropriate)- our dance floor was not empty the entire night. He took the time to ask me what I wanted our last song to be, which ended up being a really powerful moment that I will not forget. One last thing on the DJ, I realize looking back what a huge mistake it would have been to not have them. Reid kept the flow of the night as not just a DJ, but as the MC. From the grand entrance, to introducing the first dance, father daughter dance to gathering the crowds for the garter and bouquet toss. It was exactly what we needed to keep the night organized and fun.

Also- we had Instant Request do our lighting at our venue and that turned out wonderful as well. The magenta shades really gave it more of an event atmosphere. All and all, it was a great experience from beginning to end!

Ryan Conners of Instant Request is handsdown the best DJ I have ever seen/heard at a wedding. He did a great job with really reading the guests and playing appropriate music. No corny jokes or anecdotes. Perfect level of interaction at the appropriate times. He was on time, and he was professional and fun. He stuck to our strict "do not play" list even after someone tried bribing him with $100 to play a song that we didn't want. WOW! Good job! He was very fun, thanks Ryan! We will happily recommend you to anyone looking for a DJ! Instant request in general has a very convenient online event planner that was helpful in planning each part of the evening and the corresponding music. Thanks!

Everything about this DJ service is extremely user friendly and incredibly professional. Their online event planner was a breeze to use and really helped me figure out the timing of the night's activities. You are able to create music playlists that can be exclusively played or just used to give the DJ an idea of what you are looking for. Our DJ Brian was outstanding. I've never seen someone truly enjoy their job the way that he clearly enjoys his. He was very attentive to what music the crowd was responding to and was very open to requests (as crazy as they may have been!). I would definitely recommend this company and Brian in particular!

We were hesitant to have a DJ because it's so common and a band was much more appealing to us but looking back we would have done the DJ every time over. Our DJ (DJ Nate) was extremely nice and easy to work with and he helped keep our reception running smoothly the whole night through the entrances, the toasts, cake cutting etc. and it was perfect. Once our dance floor was starting to get a little empty he came and asked us if he could go away from our play list to try and get more people out and it worked perfectly.

It was the perfect blend of music and we had the best night of our lives. Our experience was nothing but positive and we'd highly recommend Instant Request to anyone!

The whole year leading up to the wedding I was in constant communication with the company and had time to select songs (and ban songs!) that would be played at the reception. The night of the wedding came and my original DJ was sick! They sent an excellent replacement who was friendly, fun, outgoing and very polite. He played the songs I had pre-selected and also worked in my friends and families requests. Whenever I had a song request or a question he was very attentive and respectful. I would recommend this DJ company to anyone having a party or wedding 100%

Instant request was a pleasure to work with from the very begining all the way through the reception. Their event planning software is incredibly userfriendly, the sample audio made song selection simple, and they were incredibly responsive with any assistance we required throughout the planning process. On they day of the event, they were very professional to work with, playing the songs from our play list, avoiding the songs from our do not play list, and had a very appropriate amound of interaction with the guests. As the night went on, I requested that our DJ transition from the 'typical wedding reception' music to a genre that younger people could dance to, and he made the transition flawlessly. Long story short, we were extremely pleased with every aspect of instant request, they get our highest recommendations, and would hire them again for any upcoming events without hesitaion.

If you are a bride looking for music to entertain your guests and don't have a huge budget, but want to spend more then just having your cousin put together a iPod music list, then you have to check out Instand Request!

I did a lot of research and went to a handful of appointments. I saw reviews about IR and they were all fabulous....so I scheduled an appointment. Just walking through their doors almost sold me right there. Everything looks professional and up-to-date. I worked with Matt, who never pressured me once and answered all my questions. I signed at the dotted line right there. :) Since I booked them 8 months in advance, I did a payment plan, which eased looking at the final number (which isn't bad at all!). The list of music is incredible and YOU get to decide how your reception/music will be played. YOU.

Nate was our DJ and he was outstanding! Again, very professional, extremely nice and checked in when needed and played songs that just happened to pop into my head right then and there. I think he had as good of a time as we did! :)

IR is located in Bloomington and I had my reception almost 2 hours south and the price out beat any of the closer locations by far! AND, Nate arrived 2 hours BEFORE the open house....played music the entire night and for our dance. We were having TOO MUCH FUN, that I couldn't end the dance at midnight and extended it.

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about our experience with Instant Request. I would hire them again in a heartbeat and recommend them to any bride.

Matt would often respond to my emails in under half an hour and it was always easy to get them on the phone. Oftentimes they would call us and give us information about things that we hadn't even thought to ask about yet, and their online event planner was a lifesaver!

I can't say enough great things about Instant Request and our DJ (Jason). My husband didn't want any "cheesy" entertainment, and Instant Request more than met that challenge. They were extrememly professional and provided great service & music with none of the gimmicks. We had a very classy wedding and our DJ was able to get our guests of all ages (between 16-75) out dancing ALL night long. Our dance didn't end until midnight when we had to leave our venue. Instant Request's music/event planner was excellent! You can choose ALL of your songs if you want, create a do not playlist, and customize how your reception will flow. They even give you the option to change on the fly that evening, and will occassionally check in with you during the night to see if you'd like anything new added or taken away. My husband & I had a blast customizing our playlist! Their price was practically a steal for the service & quality.

Instant request was very professional and ensured that we received the ceremony music and reception music we requested. They have you fill out a specific planner for the night of your event and have the DJ that will be working it follows up with you. This made me feel very confident in their services prior to the wedding. The night of the wedding many people commented on how much they enjoyed the music throughout the night.

We had Ryan Conners as our DJ and he was great- very familiar with our venue. We used Instant Request for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music and couldn’t have been happier. They are super professional and cared about the flow of our evening. He had guests dancing the entire night!! I thought it would be corny to have a DJ play music for our outdoor ceremony but you couldn’t even tell the difference that the music was coming from a DJ as opposed to a person playing the piano. They also had really nice microphones that blocked out the wind so people could hear us say our vows and hear our officiant.

Dan Dias was our DJ from Instant Request and he was incredible! Before the wedding he called us and we talked for almost 2 hours about our expectations of the evening; from the moment we arrived at our venue to the very last song he would play! He was a great listener and very attentive to our likes/dislikes. I felt like he really got to know us and our style and because of that was able to cater the evening to us and our guests.

He arrived at our venue hours before, setting up and ensuring everything was ready. When the wedding party arrived in our bus, he greeted us at the door, double checked the pronounciation of all the names in our wedding party and how we wanted him to introduce us. He provided awesome dinner music (as well as cocktail hour music but I wasn't there to hear that :) and then got the party started!

I could tell throughout the night that he had a good feel for what was getting people of ALL ages out on the dance floor. He had great timing throughout the night and balanced different style/type of songs well. He made sure all the guests had blast as our dance floor was still FULL at 12:30 when the party ended!

Instant Request was amazing! I had no idea what I wanted in a DJ and called several places, but I knew I found a great company when I called Instant Request. Matt talked to me for a half-hour about what kind of bride I was and what I liked/disliked about wedding reception music. He had so many suggestions for me that became a wonderful part of my wedding reception.
Our DJ, Ryan, called ahead of time to discuss details and was really personable on the phone. He was even nicer in person. He even accommodated several last minute requests from me at our reception - and you'd never know they were last minute!
We have already recommended Instant Request to friends getting married in August (who were trying to book them after they attended our wedding), and I would recommend them to every other couple! They included so much in their prices, too!

Instant Request was great to work with from start to finish. We meet them at a local vendor show and were completely impressed by their professionalism, their online planner and how personable their dj's were. Kent was our dj for the evening and did a great job. We were even an hour behind schedule but everything went off without a hitch! He kept our dance floor packed the entire night! Seriously people wouldn't leave and were requesting more songs. I would recommend them to anyone and will be using them again for events in the future! Thank you!

I am soooo glad I chose this DJ company. I’d heard great things about them, but they were really great to work with. I used them for both ceremony and reception and everything was seamless. He arrived two hours prior to ceremony to set up, which made me so comfortable not having to worry right before the ceremony as to whether or not my DJ would show up. All ceremony songs were played perfectly and with great timing.

For reception, he played soft music during the cocktail hour and dinner. He kept the volume low enough so that people could converse and enjoy each other…but loud enough that the music could be heard. He was very polite and friendly. He interacted with the crowd when necessary and only when necessary, which was exactly the level of interaction I’d wanted.

They were very easy to work with regarding two songs that weren’t in their library. I just provided them on cd and they were played without issue.

Our guests could not get off the dance floor! Instant Request fit perfectly with what we wanted. We provided a list to play off of, but left it up to the DJ to mix and take requests. Our DJ was Reid Mosey, he was amazing.... he felt the mood of the crowd and played for them. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

Let's just say when the dance floor has no less than 50 people on it from 9 p.m. - 1 a.m., it's a good night!! People were begging for the dj to stay, but our facilities closed at 1 a.m.! Our dj played a perfect blend of what we had requested, but also kept with the flow of the evening and made sure to keep people dancing! We were told by many people that it was one of the best wedding dances they had ever been to. I would recommend Instant Request to ANYONE looking for the a fabulous DJ!!!!

On time, state of the art equipment and flexibility with changes throughout the night. The online music selection was very convenient. The caterer forgot to feed our DJ and he didn't even mention it - we only found out b/c I asked him, "did you enjoy your dinner?" at the end of the night.

Overall I was so impressed with Instant Request. They were so attentive to our choices of music. They were so organized and professional (they didnt have the tacky self advertisement on the black tarp at the dj table which was nice). They had a very helpful website where we could pick out specific songs or genre and you could pick traditional things you wanted and didnt want (like the chicken dance or dollar dance). They also have a number of DJs and set you up with the one that best meets your taste. Our DJ was phenomenal everyone said he was the best DJ they had ever seen, he really was, he played all the best music, all our style and taste and he was so attentive, flexible and responsive to what we needed and when throughout the night. He was really good at staying in contact with me to make sure I was ok and liking the music and asked me when to start the father daughter and mother son dances and the rest the ones we picked. He was not overwhelming at all like some DJs he just knew the right amount of fun and was not over the top! So the overall quality of service was great and I thought it was reasonably priced and he got so much for what we paid, I would have paid even $500 more for them so we tipped the DJ $200 for being so great! I would recommend them to anyone, they can meet your needs no matter what and they will make sure you have a fun dance and reception!

Everything we had prearranged; music selections, order of events, interaction with guests was delivered exactly as we had hoped. Matt even made a point to double check with us about certain song selections that had been requested from guests - and thankfully so! He used such great judgment and was so pleasant to us and our guests. Matt really made the night a true success. Everyone had a great time and was dancing all night. I would definitely recommend Instant Request, especially Matt, to one and all. Thanks again!

I am so glad I went with Instant Request for my DJ! Our particular DJ, Conner Dahl, was amazing from start to finish. When the dance floor wasn't as full as I wanted it to be, I gave him one song suggestion, and he read the crowd's reaction and kept that atmosphere going all night! He was extremely responsive to song requests from guests but only played them if and when it fit with the crowd's mood. My requests, on the other hand, were accommodated immediately, which, let's face it, as a bride is a must! I love it that my wedding reception was a gigantic dance party which people still talk about! The company as a whole is great. The online event planner is fun and easy, and their prices are reasonable. Go with Instant Request for sure, and ask for Conner if you want a fun milennial dance party reception!

The most wonderful feature is an online event planner; it allows you to choose the style, mood, even EVERY song that you want played at the reception! Your DJ will also be hand-picked for you based on your style. Our DJ was a perfect match! He was personable and professional. He monitored the dance floor and chose an order of songs that would get people dancing. He responded promptly to my calls the weeks leading up to the wedding, and he was very understanding and accomodating to my last-minute changes. Excellent value for a reasonable price! The DJ can really make or break the mood of your reception and Instant Request surely made ours a successful party.

I am thrilled that we used Instant Request for our ceremony DJ. The online event planner is really useful (and the only reason I gave them a 4.5 for flexibility is you can't alter the planner 3 weeks ahead of time, but I believe you can email them and they will work with you), and I do wish that they would match you with a dj a bit more in advance as by the time we were matched with ours, I was going insane with last-minute things. Our DJ, Travis, was absolutely AMAZING. I cannot say enough good things about him, he was perfect. He did a great job on the wedding party introduction, and only got better from there! Instant Request is a great deal for the money, and they do a great job! Thrilled with Travis!

We used Instant Request for our DJ at our wedding.

In the beginning, we originally thought we'd just have a friend work with custom playlists that we would create on our Ipod - we were worried that having a DJ would make our reception a 'cheesy' experience. However, we decided that we didn't want to have any of our friends 'work' at our wedding reception, so we started to research DJ's.

We came across Instant Request through a friend and were immediately blown away by the cost and the flexibility of us being able to truly customize our reception music experience.

They have an online event planner that allows you to customize things you want and don't want - from the music to how much the DJ involves him/herself with the crowd.

We had DJ Nate at our reception and he was awesome. He got in touch with us a couple weeks before the wedding to talk about the details on our event planner - I had a few changes and they were totally flexible in allowing us to make those changes - they even used a bunch of our own music that we originally thought we would never get to hear through a DJ. He checked in throughout the reception to make sure things were good and if we were ready for our toasts, etc. and it was just a very smooth and awesome experience.

The guests loved everything and had very sore feet after our reception from all the fun dancing. :)

We highly recommend Instant Request (and DJ Nate) because they completely proved me wrong about my concerns that DJ's are cheesy...it was an awesome night.

Cheers!

I'm so happy I went with Instant Request. I've only heard great things about them, but I was more than happy with the results. They were really easy to work with, professional, and experienced. The Event Planner was so nice to have. It was fun to use, but it also made me more comfortable to know that my preferences were documented and not just quickly explained over the phone. They're very flexible as well. I called a couple days before to ask them to run the photo slideshow. Mitch said it was no problem, added the service, and the slideshow equipment looked so nice and professional. And did I mention the dj? Lance could not have been more wonderful. I wanted the dance floor packed the whole night, but realized that wasn't necessarily going to happen. I was wrong. From the wedding party dance until the very last dance of the night, the floor was packed. People kept telling me how great the dj was. I've never heard that comment at a wedding before. If anyone talks about the dj it's to say they suck. Every single song he played got people moving. We all had a blast. I definitely recommend Instant Request.

Overall I really liked Instant Request. I got lighting as well as DJ services from them. The lighting was amazing, and I think that in itself brought my wedding to a whole other level! I also had them DJ the ceremony. I did get pretty upset though when my processional song started out right..then switched to some random classical music and then came back on cue again before I walked out. It really threw me off. No one seemed to notice but me, but I was kinda sad about it. I did not say anything to my DJ though, cause he really was a super nice guy, and the rest to the reception went pretty amazingly. They did accidentally start my first dance song before they meant to and had to re-start it, but again I don't think anyone noticed but me and he profusely appoligized. I noticed he really did stick to all my playlist requests and he played all my must play songs which was really great! He also was super cool at announcing to our guests to remember to use the photo booth and other announcements like the dollar dance etc. Even with the few hiccups I experienced our DJ was great, very easy to work with & the online event planner tool Instant request provides is awesome!

We hired Nate, via Instant Request, to provide DJ services for both the ceremony and reception portions of our wedding. Overall, we found Instant Request to be excellent - their online music planning system is very intuitive and guides you through all of the music choices you need to make throughout the wedding day (even if you're hiring musicians for portions of the day, it's helpful to be able to see it all in one place!). Their music library is extensive and had plenty to choose from under our genres of interest (the usual choices of a couple of 28 years olds who are trying to get everybody, including Grandma, on the dance floor). Furthermore, they were very responsive to our questions - which were all submitted via email, due to our planning from a long distance. As for Nate, specifically: we paid extra to have him, having seen his work at a friend's wedding, and could not have been more pleased with his efforts up to and on our wedding day. He spent a long time on the phone with us, the week before the wedding, problem solving some of our sound equipment issues and ensuring everything was ready to go. On the day, he executed all of our requests without a hitch, interacted with the crowd an appropriate amount and consulted us, only occasionally, but in helpful ways (e.g. asking if we were ready to do the toasts, confirming certain guest's questionnable song requests were acceptable). In summary: we would definitely recommend this company and, in particular, urge you to pay the bit extra to guarantee Nate - it was money well spent.

We really enjoyed our experience with Instant Request. We were able to meet with our DJ before our wedding to discuss what kinds of music we wanted played. They also had a fabulous online event planner where we could make our own playlist, depending on what time of the evening it was. There was a must-play option, as well as categories to fill in for the mother-son and father-daughter dance, as well as our first dance. You are even able to choose what type of DJ you want so, if like us, you prefer someone who isn't jumping all over the place you are in luck with Instant Request. Even my dad, who wasn't too keen on the idea of a DJ - he thought it would be cheesy - was impressed by the level of professionalism displayed during our wedding reception.

We continue to get high praise for our DJ months after our wedding. I was excited when I found out that Nate had been chosen to DJ our wedding because I saw that he had gotten such great reviews from other couples, and he more than lived up to the praise. I'm from a family that doesn't do much dancing, but if the right mix of music is playing, we will get off our seats and have a great time on the dance floor. We knew we would need a DJ who could seamlessly switch back and forth between a variety of styles of music as some of our guests would want to fox trot, swing or waltz while others wouldn't step on the dance floor to those songs and instead would prefer more upbeat songs better suited for just jumping around while singing along or even breakdancing.

We were able to talk with Nate before the wedding and he was able to get many songs we requested that weren't even on the already huge data base of songs that Instant Request had on their event planner page. He and his assistant showed up on time, dressed very professionally, and did a fantastic job of selecting songs from our list in an order that kept the energy level up and people on the dance floor all evening. Many of our guests say it was the best wedding and/or best party they have ever attended.

They also provided dinner music and made announcements as needed throught the evening. His delivery of such announcements was exactly what we hoped for, he was well spoken and to the point, and got back to the music as soon as he had communicated what needed to be said.

We are so grateful we made the decision to go with Instant Request.

Since the first time we met with Mitch at Instant Request, we knew we'd be in good hands. The offices were beautiful, with all the latest technology; and Mitch was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and a good listener. We could understand why others recommended Instant Request to us for our wedding. We were a little nervous about the music all coming together... as we had vocalists and a pianist, and also used our DJ during our ceremony songs; but it all came together well. Thank you! (PS - Don't underestimate the effect of 'uplighting' for your event. We had Instant Request provide uplighting, and we really loved it and we received a lot of positive comments on how much it added to our beautiful room!)

We have no bad or even mediocre comments! We love Instant Request, their online music finding tool was awesome and easy. We had some requests that were not on their music finder, they emailed us back promptly and added the music to our playlist (communication was great). Our DJ (Dan) did exactly what we asked, knew what songs to play when, and kept the guests on the dance floor. We would recommend them anytime!

Instant Request was a great DJ. The online event planner was a nice way to plan ahead what we wanted for our reception. The DJ was really great about taking time to check in with us to make sure that we still wanted to stick with the plan (and sometimes we didn't, so it was good that he asked). He wasn't overly involved, but did a great job of keeping people on the dance floor until the very end. Overall, we were happy with Instant Request.

We were very happy with Instant Request DJ. Our DJ was very professional and flexible with requests while still following our playlist. The online planner was a great tool that helped us have a better idea with all planning for the evening. The DJ was very contientious of the music volume during dinner (not too loud so people could talk, but not too quiet). He kept people out on the dance floor until the very end of the night!

We had a great experience with our DJ. The pre-wedding communication was always speedy and the online music forms were so helpful! I would say from my experience and other friends that the more time you put into the online form the better the service will be. It really helps the DJ get a gage for what types of music you like. Ours was very flexible, we did a rock-the-reception type father daughter dance and had to have him cut out the music for us. We also choose a different style of handling the glass-clinking kisses and our DJ was really helpful with that. Overall, they did a great job and were very professional. I completely understand why hiring a quality DJ is so important after working with them, it adds so much to your reception, especially if you want to do a lot of dancing!

We used Instant Request for our DJ at our wedding - largely because of their online planning tools - and it was worth it! It made things so much easier, and really gave them a good idea of who to pair us with! Our DJ, Ryan, the night of was amazing! We didn't have to worry about anything - and he made everything happen! My only complaint is the charge they wanted for the ceremony. Our ceremony was in the same place as the reception, the DJ stuff could have stayed in the same spot for both. While I understand they would have to come early and do work and it deserved an extra fee on top of the normal music, their quote of $300 for the extra half hour seemed a little high. We ended getting a friend to just do it. Other than that we had a great experience and would highly recommend them!

We had DJ Kjell from Instant Request for our wedding and he did an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G job. I am a bit of a control freak, so I picked Instant Request because I liked their Online Event Planner where I could pick most of the songs that the DJ would play. I spent hours doing this as it was very important to me to have good music and have the dance floor packed all night. I spent a little bit more money to specifically get Kjell for the night as I had told people at Instant Request that I wanted someone who had turn tables and could mix beats as I wanted the music to be continuous and for our dance to have a club feeling. They recommended Kjell to us and it was a perfect fit!

I spoke to Kjell a week before the wedding to go over our Event Planner and discuss what I wanted the night to look like. He was responsive to all of my ideas and had some good ideas to share, as well. I felt very comfortable with him after our phone conversation.

The night of the wedding, he did an incredible job. He took our vision and ran with it! Our dance floor was PACKED all night long and the music was so fun. I even had one friend tell me she didn't want to leave to go to the bathroom for fear that she would lose her spot on the dance floor. We had so many comments on how our wedding had the best dance party and music that they had ever been to. I would definitely recommend Instant Request to my friends and even more so, DJ Kjell!!

I went with Instant Request without shopping around much based on the string of "best of" awards. Since I wanted to spend money where it mattered, I probably spent more than needed for a DJ but I'd do it again. Michael was great to work with, played what we wanted which, considering we were mostly an older group (35-80), was not today's pop hits. (Note: I did spend a good amount of time filling out the online profile forms. It was time well spent.) He interacted with the crowd in an professional, yet fun, manner. I think the venue was new to him, so we blew out a fuse 2 or 3 times. Each time, it was quickly (like a minute or maybe two) fixed. We had the dance floor rockin' for 4 hours and had lots of compliments about how much fun everyone had. Thanks Michael and Instant Request.

Instant Request was wonderful. My husband and I were able to plan our DJ experience online with Instant Request. Although this seemed a bit hands off at first, it was super convenient and the day of the wedding...everything went perfectly. Our DJ was Nate, and he was amazing, I heard from some friends that he was helping set things up at the reception because time was running out. I would recommend the DJ service from Instant Request to anyone looking for a vendor who they can trust to carry out their vision for the music at their reception.

Anthony did a great job at our wedding. We didn't find out that Anthony was our DJ until 2 or 3 weeks before the wedding, but we filled out the extensive online profile, which pretty much included everything you would want the DJ to know. We had a little issue getting in touch with Anthony at first, I think he was out of town. We were a little worried at first, but once we did talk on the phone, it was clear that Anthony was polite, knowledgeable, likable, and had a nice voice. Before the reception Anthony came over and introduced himself, and was very accommodating when we asked him to pick some songs to play during our slideshow last minute. The DJ booth was kind of far from the rest of the dining tables (due to the setup of the venue), but Anthony made sure to be attentive to us for when speeches needed to be made, and slideshows needed to be played. The speakers were also kind of far from the dining tables, so some times it was little difficult to hear him clearly. He did a great job playing music for the dances. He certainly got people on the dance floor; in fact, the music was so good that guests from another wedding at the same venue wanted to come to dance at our wedding instead. I think he did such a good job that our guests didn't want to leave at the end of the night, and after the last song everyone requested an encore, which he then deferred to us to decide. And at the end of the night Anthony also gave us a card to congratulate us. All in all, we thought that Anthony did a great job, and we would recommend Instant Request, as well as Anthony to other brides!

Instant Request was all that we were looking for in a DJ. We had a unique reception venue where the dance floor was upstairs from the dining area. We wanted our DJ downstairs to manage music and also to announce the bridal party in the grand march when we arrived to the reception, but we also needed them upstairs later to run the music for the dance. I talked with them before booking and they were pretty accommodating and agreed to put a speaker with an ipod and microphone downstairs for dinner and then have the main system upstairs. That way they could just quickly run upstairs to start the music when the dance started. What I like most about Instant request was their online event planner. We had a unique login and were able to go in there 24/7 and change things as much as we wanted up until about 3 weeks before the wedding. It had EVERYTHING in there from the style of reception we want, to the DJ interaction, the style of the bouquet and garter tosses, what special dances we want and the songs we want and much, much more. This was very helpful since my husband and I start work early in the morning and don�t have time to talk at night to a DJ about all the details. I would definitely recommend Instant Request to anyone needing a DJ for any event.

WE loved Instant Request! They provided awesome service to us, and we loved the online event planner. The only thing that was a little annoying was our DJ probably brought up leaving him a tip 4 or 5 times, and it seemed a bit unprofessional. I understand it is their job and if they go above and beyond expectations you should indeed tip them, but tipping is also voluntary and is certainly not mandatory, especially when you are already spending $700-$800 dollars! We felt it was a little ackward and made us not want to leave a tip! Other than that everything was great and the dance floor was packed all night long!

Instant Request DJ Entertainment responded with the following comments:

Most of our brides inquire what a customary tip is so our DJ's offer that information. We do not have a policy of requesting gratuity since our philosophy is that it is the Bride and Groom's discretion. Our DJ's love what they do and are very good at it. Most clients are more than happy to tip since our fee is such a value.

Instant request fit all of our needs for our wedding reception for a DJ. They have a wedding event planner that is easy to use and you can pick music that you want them to play. You can do it where they choose most of the music or where they only play music on your playlist. I was pleased with their professionalism and their flexiblity during the evening to get the special events in that we wanted. Their price started out high but they came down to a price that we could afford. We paid around $500 and I wouldn't pay more than that for a DJ. Especially when it is easy enough to do your own music now with an ipod and a great set of speakers.

Instant Request provided our reception music for our wedding. We used them during their off season rates so the value was wonderful. The event planner was helpful but our DJ did not contact us until 3 days before the event which was an unnecessary stress. At the event, we had a few hick ups because our DJ had not discussed with us where we would enter for our introduction so our venue coordinator had to figure that out for us last minute. They also had not communicated with the venue when our first dance would be so we had to wait a few minutes once we were ready for the lighting to be adjusted. For both of these issues, I feel our DJ relied too much on the event planner to give him the details and that is where the oversights came into play. We did a 1920's theme and, while they were able to provide some of the music from our list for cocktail hour and dinner, we ended up having to provide them with about half of what we wanted which involved us purchasing the music ourselves. Overall, they were responsive to our requests and our DJ did a wonderful job at adjusting the music to what our guests wanted to hear. The few problems we encountered were minor in comparison to everything they provided. I would recommend them to others but would simply suggest that you make sure all the details are discussed in detail prior to the event.

We used Instant Request for both music and lighting at our wedding reception. The Online Event Planner was very thorough and made the planning process simple. We have seen this company at several weddings, and they rarely disappoint. We didn't get our request in for a particular DJ in time and were matched with someone who we hadn't seen before. I recommend putting in your request early if you have a preference!

We had a pretty good experience with Instant Request. We really liked their online event planner. which allowed us to pre-select songs that we wanted (or didn't want) to have played. I wish the DJ would have played more of the songs we selected, but we had given him permission to play other songs as well. I also requested a song that they weren't able to get, which bummed me out a bit. I didn't like the fact that we weren't able to talk to our DJ directly until a few days before the wedding. I felt that was cutting it too close--I was so busy with last minute details at that point, and it would have been more convenient to deal with the DJ earlier. I also didn't like the fact that the company wouldn't even consider matching the price of another company with a similar reputation--I actually wouldn't have gone with Instant Request if it hadn't been for the fact that the other company kept calling me over and over. However, the DJ was very friendly and did everything we asked. The sound quality was great, and the setup was nice-looking and unobtrusive. I would definitely recommend Instant Request to other brides in terms of overall quality.

He gave his number out to some of my guests and called and invited one of them to a gig he was working the next night. He did a excellent job of keeping the party going and his work was great, i just wished for more professionalism on his part in regards to flirting girls.

The folks who run the office part of Instant Request are really great and very responsive, flexable and helpful! I was in touch with them multiple times and they were always professional and nice about issues I raised, I was impressed.

Our DJ Dan did a great job with the music and was able to cater to our older crowd and music taste,

I know this is the best value and quality in town for DJ services!

Our dj was very helpful and went above and beyond his duties during our wedding ceremony. He was very curteous and was very responsive to me (the bride) and what our wishes were for the reception.

Instant Request is a great way to go! The DJ showed up on time, was professional, and played the music I chose. The best part about Instant Request is that you can pick out all your songs and create a play list online. You can preview songs and they offer song suggestions for things like your first dance, father-daughter dance, etc. I would recommend Instant Request though it is pricey.

The price was reasonable and Instant Request was recommended by our wedding planner. The online event planner was really nice but did not include some of the songs we wanted. Our DJ did a great job handling our rowdy college friends and get the dance floor all night. Overall great value.

I liked the online planner but the day of was just not what
I was expecting. A few times I had to tell him to stop playing the music because I didn't like it. We wanted an interactive, fun DJ and ours was the complete opposite.

I loved using Instant Request. The online wedding planning was great to use. You could write everything you needed for dances, toasts, songs you wanted played, songs you didn't, how much interaction you wanted the DJ to have.. Basically covered everything. Our DJ that was assigned to us called a few days before the event to go over everything, verify how to say names of people, and anything else we had questions or he had questions about. The day of he was set up and there when needed and everything went great.

We booked Instant Request after hearing good things from another bride however we made the mistake of not requesting her specific DJ. The DJ we had was just ok, we spent a lot of time on our online music planner and nothing was really played off of it, we requested a lot of 80s rock as that's what our family's are into (I've paid extra attention to what songs get people on the dance floor at all the weddings I've been to in the last two years), a lot of newer pop was played which we don't listen to so the dance floor was pretty much dead all night. We had a few people that made requests on songs they specifically wanted to hear however they had to request them four or five times over a three hour period and finally my groom went and requested them and they got played. It wasn't a horrible experience and I wouldn't say working with Instant Request ruined my wedding reception but if I could go back I would choose differently.

Instant Request is definitely professionally run. Shawn and Matt are good to work with, have excellent equipment, and are responsive to communications.

Overall; however, I recommend proceeding with caution if you are thinking of using them, especially if you are particular about your music.

Our disappointments were 4-fold:
1) Music variety/mixing: I provided the DJ with an extensive play-list. In advance of the wedding, we discussed at length that I wanted the music beat-mixed so that songs were kept relatively short, and there would be a lot of variety the night of. Instant Request promised they would deliver this capability and said they had picked a DJ suited to my preference. While the DJ stuck to the music playlist, he practically did no beat mixing whatsoever. Several songs were left unplayed and more disconcerting, some of the songs I provided Instant Request were standard LP style for mixing and instead of any fading in or out of the songs (what they are meant for!), the DJ just played these as they were which left long intro and outros. This really dumbed down the vibe on the dance floor which had SO much potential.
2) Sound-check: Our DJ didn’t have a good sound-check ready to go for the event early on. For our grand march (first song of the night which we asked to be high energy), and early on during dinner, the music was so low it was barely audible throughout the hall. I had to get up and ask for music to be turned up which was a hassle considering all that was going on. I know the Instant Request guys were set up early and ready to go so I was surprised they didn’t have a good sense for appropriate volume. This may sound small but we felt it made us look bad and it just hurts that your opening segment where you want to set the tone for the night gets screwed up,
2) Transitions: We planned our night's music so after the Grand March, we would have our Bride/Groom song, and then we would sit down and join our guests for dinner (and then fire up the dance floor after dinner). With the music already at low levels, our first song was played correctly but immediately after the song, there was dead silence and our DJ wasn’t ready with follow-up music to transition. Honestly, there was silence in the hall for about 20 seconds and it was VERY embarrassing from my perspective.
4) Event Planner Pretty Useless: I spent way too much time on the wedding planner picking out songs. While it had its value (i.e., ideas for songs), I found it wasn't actually used the night of. My playlist ended up being easier to facilitate with my DJ using Excel. Also, we entered in several details into the planner for the night that had to be re-hashed during the reception which created confusion and more stress. In particular, our Grand March was not well prepared and we had to go through the process of writing down everyone's names and order for the introductions. This may sound trivial but you will see on the day of your wedding, you are being pulled in 1,000 directions and it's stressful to have to organize things like this when you already provided the information (via the event planner).

So in summary, there were some balls dropped that we felt should have been easily managed by Instant Request. If you really are picky about your music, you might want to consider other options. I seriously could NOT have been more explicit with them in advance as to what I wanted (I mean, I spent nearly a day preparing a playlist and I had guests asking me for the playlist afterward because they thought the music selection was so awesome) so it was disappointing to me that they didn't come through.

We felt more comfortable going with Instant Request because of the great reviews. Our DJ seemed less experienced and just kind of overwhelmed all evening. When I e-mailed our feedback to the manager, he chalked it up to "being rusty" and and "upgraded dj system" but I feel like that should be addressed BEFORE doing an event?

There were a lot of minor issues throughout the night, but we still had fun, so I guess it was fine. I'd definitely consider using live musicians rather than a DJ for the ceremony music and be as specific as possible when doing your event planner/discussing it with your DJ if you decide to go with them!!!

I have heard good things about Instant Request, but our DJ was NOT what we wanted at all. He played music we had never talked about, and probably didn't even reach the year 2000 until half way through the night.

It is a little difficult to plan the event without being able to discuss things with the DJ in person. They use an online system until a few weeks before. I think our bad match would have been avoided if it had not been for the online system.

Good company, just make sure you are VERY specific on what type of music you want played and when you want it played throughout the night.

The online planner is great, but it would be nice to speak with your DJ sooner in the process (we didn't talk to our actual DJ until the week prior.) During the actual reception, the DJ kept coming to me and asking me questions. I wish he would've been more assertive and used his professional experience to make the decisions instead of coming to ask me every little thing. I wanted to enjoy myself not make more choices that night.

Also, we switched around our timing a little bit (moved up the cake tasting a little bit) and he made an announcement and told our guests that "due to a timing issue" they were moving up the serving of the cake. I didn't like that he told our guests that there was any sort of 'issue.' Our guests would've never known there was any sort of 'issue' but he told them.

I would not recommend Instant Request. The DJ who serviced us did not do the prework and have our "must plays" ready to play. The night of the event he didn't have the "must plays" queued up and was not prepared when the dancing should have begun.

Instant Request DJ Entertainment responded with the following comments:

Danielle and Jeremy were a great couple. The tricky part about their song list was that we recommend clients preselect up to 80 songs and they selected nearly 200 songs. There was no possible way to play all of their requests. They had great music selected with a 89.3 (the current) kind of flair but there was no way would would have time to get to all of those songs. Their DJ is one of the most requested DJ's in town and even played all of the dinner music custom for them. Music we would like to here during dinner: � Billie Holiday � Miles Davis (Kind of Blue Era, Miles Smiles, Nefertiti, In a Silent Way) � Nat King Cole � Bill Evans (e.g. Live at the Village Vanguard / Waltz for Debbie) � John Coltrane � Blue Trane � Thelonius Monk � Alone in San Francisco � Sonny Rollins � Saxophone Colossus.
Great couple just too many songs for us to play in a night.

I was told our dj would be contacting us 3 weeks before the wedding to set up a meeting and go over our event planner. I received an email from him 2 weeks before introducing himself, and he said he would call the next day. A week later he finally called, didn't initiate a time to meet so i had to. I think if I hadn't forced him to meet with us, he would have been ok not meeting us until the day of the wedding. Don't you want to meet the couple your dj'ing for and make sure they feel good about you and you're both on the same page? When we met, he didn't go over our event planner at all and said he had been to our venue before so he was all set. Day of the wedding he seemed very unsure of himself, barely spoke, and needed a lot of direction. He brought an assistant and I spoke with the asst more than the dj. I was looking for someone more direct and outgoing, and someone who seemed excited to dj our wedding. If there was confusion as to how the evening was suppose to go our what we were looking for, that could have been avoided had our dj gone through our event planner prior to our wedding.

He did play the list of songs we provided which was good, but I was expecting a different experience.

Our $595 off-peak rate includes (which is what Barbara and Zach paid) includes everything for a great reception. Sound, lighting, customized music, DJ (or two in their case) in a full black tuxedo, cocktail music, dinner music and dance until 1:00am.
It also includes a PHONE CONSULTATION as early as three weeks out (typically done a week or so before depending on the clients availability)
For brides who want V. I. B. (Very Important Bride) service, we offer a BLACK TIE DJ (as detailed on our website) for an additional fee and that service includes a face to face meeting. Sometimes brides don't select to pay the BLACK TIE SERVICE but the DJ's are still nice enough to meet with them. That is the individual DJs choice. (DJ Jay met with Barbara and Zach and I would call that Above and beyond - Great customer service!)
Our attempt is to keep our price an amazing value but also have an option (BLACK TIE) for brides who request the highest level of personalized service.
Barbara and Zach were a great couple and we have played for a couple of their friends in the past.
The DJ even played a couple special dedications to their friends since we had their first dance songs in our history.
Samantha and Zach Freimark -FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE - STEVIE WONDER
and also Lyndsay and Brandon Meleski -YOU ARE THE BEST THING - RAY LaMontagne
These are the types of extra details that show we care. We aren't the type of DJ company that does a lot of unwanted talking on the microphone because it's not about the DJ, it's about the bride and groom, their friends and family.

We were extremely disappointed with our experience!

Ryan was our DJ and we had given him specific CDs with International Music on them (as most of our guests were international). Each set of CDs was labeled with the exact genre. Ryan didn't even attempt to play anything from the CDs until the last hour of the evening. I know that there were many Africans that were requesting African music over and over and he simply said that he didn't play it because he wasn't familiar with it. Finally someone gave him their iPhone and said play this exact song!!! We had so many people coming up to us and asking "What's up with this DJ!? Does he not notice that no one is dancing?"

We specifically requested a DJs that was familiar with international music and that was comfortable playing it as well. We were told that this would not be a problem at all before our wedding. Our DJ avoided the international music specifically because he didn't know it. If Instant Request had told me directly, up front, "Our DJ's are not comfortable playing African and Latin music, we would best advise you to go to another company where they may be more familiar." I think that would have been more of an honest statement, instead of saying that Ryan was a great fit for our specific needs. This was not even close to the case. Our main request/need was not met and I am extremely disappointed, as were most of our international guests. I wish I had gone with another company!

Extremely disappointed! (However, the online planner was convenient to select American music.)

We met with our DJ a week before the wedding. We went over the whole schedule because we had quite a few specific requests. On the day of, as we are checking the dining room tables, he comes up to us, says hello, and follows up by asking if we have our entrance song on us... On us? We have been getting married for the past six hours! We don't have anything on us, much less do we have a car or anyone who can rush off to get a song that they should have procured LONG AGO! With the help of the hotel, he was able to get it, and we thought troubles were over.

After the wedding, we are told that he responded to people's requests with comments such as, "I don't know what polka is." We had a discussion about polka and how my partner's family would want it played! What!! He also told a friend that "we don't have salsa music in Minnesota." I mean, come on! Wow, do I wish I hadn't already written his tip and handed it to someone else! Just really frustrating to hear that the dj simply wouldn't play music for people or tell them to ask us.

Awesome couple. Sarah and Sarah (Gay wedding) must have received some bad information from their guests. Since the DJ was half Latino it's a little strange he would make the comment how we "don't have salsa music in MN".
To clarify her grand march entrance. We provide 100% of all music requested on our on-line event planner software... guaranteed. The problem was that they didn't fill out their song choice on the software.

We had issues with Instant request from day one. They sent us a very impressive packet in the mail with what seemed to be a “great deal” on a dj for our wedding so we signed and booked the date with them. This company is NOT clear on their pricing and definitely has hidden costs that they are NOT clear about up front. They charge $495 for a very generic photo montage, and also to reserve a “black tie” dj there is a $199 charge just for reserving a DJ???? The worst part about my entire experience with Instant Request is after my wedding finding out I was charged from my venue for equipment usage to play my photo montage that I was told was included in my pricing from Instant Request. I emailed the owner of the company asking for that money to be refunded to me and I was contacted back from him with several emails blaming ME and that it was my mistake and I misunderstood there contract pricing. After the 5th email I had to tell them to STOP emailing me.
Overall very bad customer service and no professionalism.

BRIDE HIRED US FOR PHOTO MONTAGE CREATION ONLY - NOT VIDEO SCREEN AND PROJECTOR EQUIPMENT RENTAL.
She was charged $295 to have us CREATE a photo montage DVD with music but never rented the video projector from us since we knew already that her venue has one that they prefer to rent on site. She assumed we were supplying the video equipment as well but only paid us to produce the DVD. Here feedback was very positive only one month before her wedding date. All of our pricing is available with 100% transparency on our INSTANT QUOTE page on our website.

My guests seated in the back couldn't hear the marriage ceremony. They played the wrong song for our first dance and didn't even have the song I asked for weeks ahead of time. I said no rap, the first song out of the speakers after wedding party dances was a rap song. Not so great, wouldn't recommend

Instant Request DJ Entertainment responded with the following comments:

Our DJ's try to educate the officiants to speak into the microphone but in our 30 years of experience we find that most do not because they are used to having a podium. The ceremony sound system is more than adequate for all guests to hear, it's simply about hiring an officiant who knows they need to be close to the microphone. Another item of note is that we do not recommend Lapel or Lavalier microphones. A microphone on a boom stand sounds ten times better than any clip on microphone. We are asked this all the time- Helpfuol information those of you planning an outdoor ceremony!
The song played for their first dance was "Love you till the end by the Pogues". We emailed the .mp3 file to the bride and her comment was that she thought it sounded different at the reception. Our DJ's always preview every first song to make certain it is correct per the brides request.
Our apologies by playing the "CUPID SHUFFLE" too early in the night for the bride. It was requested by at least ten of her guests. Ironically the song lyrics are "They call me a rapper but I say no". Now if that isn't ironic! We consider the Cupid Shuffle to be more of a crowd participation song and definitely a rap song. Our apologies but sometimes Grandma needs to get her dancing shoes worked out..... She may enjoy it!
Lisa and Dan were a nice couple and there were a hundred things that went perfectly. We feel the review is far too low for the services provided at an amazing value. Our DJ had the reception rocking till 1:00...... We couldn't have been a 2.0 rating!!

Terrible. We would have been better off just playing The Current. They switched our DJ one week before the wedding without apology. The DJ didn't understand our style at all. In fact we requested a song addition "Get Lucky" during our phone consultation and the DJ said "Oh, I just heard of them recently." That should have been a red flag. The dance was seriously the second most important part of the night to us and it still makes my stomach ache when I think about it.

Our DJ was horrible. Not only did he not stick to our timeline, but he failed to introduce us or some of our dances. Whenever he spoke on the microphone, no one could hear him. It seemed as though he did not know how to use his equipment and that it was his first wedding ever. When I reached out to Instant Request to complain the owner was rude and demeaning and told me that I was being irrational and that I should not have expected much since I negotiated on the rate. He also told me he would not give me a refund but would instead tell the DJ to talk louder next time. Do not use Instant Request, if anything goes wrong, it's not worth the headache.

Instant Request DJ Entertainment responded with the following comments:

My advice to all of my brides is get to know your DJ. My staff loves to get to know you before your reception. It is an important part of making sure all of the details go smoothly. It is evident from the quality rating that this bride was more upset about not receiving a full refund from items out of our control and decided to go on a vendetta in an attempt to mislead other brides. Best advice I can give any of you is to let your DJ know when they are rocking the party and also let them know if they need to change things up. Timing during a wedding is always a dynamic thing. With this reception in particular, there was no dinner only light appetizers which needed to be refilled because everyone was inquiring with the DJ where they could go to get something to eat. Since the clients requested a full refund they were viewed by our management team as unrealistic and unreasonable since all audio services including an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception were provided without technical interruption and within quality guideline.
