“We had an amazing experience with Instant Request at our wedding. I absolutely loved the detailed event planner that we were asked to fill out prior to being assigned a DJ. It really helped me consider every part of the evening and exactly how I wanted the timeline to layout. A few weeks prior to our event Rick A was assigned to be our DJ. Within a few days we had a great phone conversation where he gave me a few suggestions on details that I had not quite figured out yet. He made me confident with his experience and professionalism. And on wedding night we were not disappointed! Rick not only kept my guests dancing, but also provided excellent customer service.”
“We loved working with Instant Request. The online planner helped us to organize both our ceremony and reception music as well as make sure everything with our music & microphones went flawlessly for the entire event. We had very few required songs, and let Jimmy use his expertise for the dance portion, and it was awesome - our dance floor was full until the very last song!”

“Incredible service and value. Our DJ, Brandon, went above and beyond our expectations! We were communicated with extremely well and had a wonderful experience. We wanted to do a few unique things with wedding party introductions, last dance, etc., and all we heard from Instant Request is: "We can do that!" HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”
“We loved working with Instant Request! Tom was our DJ, and he was fantastic!! Due to COVID-19, we had to move our wedding reception to another location. This made the logistics for our DJ much more complicated. However, Matt and Mitch at Instant Request were so helpful with planning everything out, so the day was flawless. Our DJ was incredible! He was so fun and outgoing. During the ceremony, he played every song exactly how we wanted. During the reception, he did such a great job emceeing the event. He played all the songs we wanted and even showed those out on the dance floor how to do the Cupid Shuffle. Thank you Tom and Instant Request, for helping make our day so special.”
“We had DJ Obi as our DJ for our wedding which had roughly 60 guests, and we were blown away. Our wedding was initially scheduled for April, and due to COVID, we had to re-plan everything to October. I must give a shoutout to Matt and Mitch for making the process so smooth, but it was DJ Obi that really transcended our experience with Instant Request. Obi reached out to us prior to our date and walked us through every detail we could ever imagine. From first dance songs, to how we wanted to handle the "clinking of glasses" he guided us to a perfect day. His mixing skills were next level, and his ability to read a room and make it fun for all parties was spectacular.”
