Instant Request DJ Staff

DJ Daniel J

Originally hailing from Columbus, OH this Buckeye transplant has one of the most diverse tastes in music of anyone on the Instant Request staff. Daniel’s musical heart lies with Hip-Hop and dance music but he also enjoys everything from Country to Broadway. Daniel is a U.S Navy Veteran that has honed a diverse set of skills during his journey. He has been a pastry chef, dog groomer, martial arts instructor, and a soccer and snowboarder coach. Once he became interested in DJing, he bought some gear and began to teach himself how to spin and scratch. It eventually lead him to DJing weddings and events. In his free time Daniel loves to attend the theater, see live music, attend sporting events, and get involved in as many athletic activities as possible. Daniel can also be found enjoying one of the many lakes the Twin Cities have to offer.

I just wanted to thank you for all your help and Daniel for his performance. Daniel was amazing, not only did he keep the dance floor packed and everyone dancing the whole evening, but I felt so comfortable with his music selections I told him to scrap our whole must plays and selections and just keep the flow going, which he did! If I am ever planning an event like this again, you and Daniel would be my first call. He was better than I even dreamed. Everyone told me that the music makes the night and Daniel came through and created a perfect soundtrack for our wedding. I can not thank him enough! – Christie and Jacob @ Medina Golf and Country Club

We are SO impressed with the service we received from Daniel at Instant Request! From the first time we talked on the phone, to extra text messages before our wedding day and everything in between, he was always so flexible and wanted to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. We added a few fun touches to our reception and Daniel was more than willing to learn about them and make sure they were added. The dance floor was completely full the whole entire night! Thank you SO much Daniel and Instant Request!! We cannot recommend you enough! – Tessa and Joel @ Private Residence


Really easy to work with! Always responded to our questions, let us know what they needed from us. Took the time to learn about our guests and what music would get them dancing. So great! – Katie and Josh @ Legacy Hill Farm


Daniel with Instant Request was an amazing DJ! He was completely attentive and “in tune” to the style of music we wanted during the hosted hour, reception and dancing. He accommodated all of our “must play” songs, and kept our guests on the dance floor with his music mix. The online music planner program was easy to use and helped us plan all the music we needed for the ceremony, hosted hour, dinner and dance party! Their database has thousands of songs to choose from. And when we requested a couple of specialty songs that weren’t on the website, Daniel found them online and added them to our playlist! I HIGHLY recommend Instant Request and Daniel!  – Elizabeth and David @ Bunker Hills Golf Club
