DJ Bret C

Bret is originally from western WI so he has always known the twin cities as his second home. His love for music started young when he began playing the drums at the age of twelve. At the same age Bret became fascinated with turntables and would listen to old albums. Over the years this turned into a love of old school vinyl scratching and mixing called turntablism. Bret eventually started creating his own music and scratching, playing drums, and providing backup vocals in his band.

Bret is a gear head and while not Djing he works as a camera operator. He has earned Associate’s Degree in Film and Video Production. He also loves most outdoor activities such as skateboarding and kayaking, or projects like working on vehicles and drawing.


We had Bret C. as our DJ. He was super accommodating to us. I didn’t really get an opportunity to complete my online event planner but Bret helped make it easier on me to get the list of songs to him. He assured me that everything would go smoothly during the day of the wedding. He made sure to mix in a great amount of traditional Hmong music with the other songs. I know all of our guests was appreciative of this. Thanks for playing a huge role in my wedding and making sure all the music went well. I don’t have enough positive words to describe this experience. I would highly recommend Instant Request Entertainment.                                                                – Yer and Vang @ Brothers Event Center

Bret Christiansen was a wonderful DJ for our wedding at the Plymouth Creek Center!  He was attentive to our needs and to what the guests were itching to dance to.  He has a fun, upbeat personality that resonated throughout the night and kept the party going!  Instant Request was really easy to work with, and we would recommend it to anyone!                                                   Katy and David @ Plymouth Creek Center

They communicate really quickly and their website is easy to use. Our DJ, Bret, was fantastic. He made sure he understood what we wanted, played a great mix of music and even found a old polka song requested by grandparents. We received so many compliments about him and his service. We highly recommend Bret!!                                                                                            – Wendy and Eric @ Theodore Wirth Chalet

We worked with Bret for our wedding and he was awesome! After filling out our online planner, I chatted with Bret to go over a few details. He was extremely professional, easy-going and fun! He had everyone on the dance floor throughout the night.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 – Ashley and Michael @ Graduate Minneapolis
