Instant Request DJ Staff

DJ Tom C

Tom Coughlin currently lives in St Paul, MN where he skates frequently on his long board to local record shops and thrift shops digging for vinyl records to sell and trade. Originally from Chippewa Falls, WI, Tom moved to MN to attend McNally Smith College.

Tom has a special passion for music, starting out playing guitar with a goal to mimic Jimi Hendrix. At about 17 Tom bought his first pair of turntables and since then he has been building his skills as a DJ. As he has grown, so has his personal record library. Tom also performs around the twin cities metro as part of a hip hop duo that just finished recording their debut album.


DJ Tom C was the best DJ we could have had for our wedding! He read the crowd very well and there was not one moment during the night that we heard a song we didn’t like, we honestly would not change a single thing he did. We received so many compliments from our guests on how good our DJ was as well. The event planner tool made the planning process so easy and had everything in it to ensure things went smoothly and exactly the way we wanted. We can’t recommend Instant Request (and DJ Tom C) enough! <h4><strong>Karina and Ben 4/28/18 – Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens (Jimmy Bogen)</strong></h4>
Thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding. You did such an amazing job with the music between the ceremony, reception and everything else, it truly made our special day even more amazing! It was everything we wanted. We will totally be recommending you to everyone we can in the future. – Abby and Eric @ Lowertown Event Center


Instant Request was one of the best choices we made for our wedding – 5 stars! Their online system was so detailed and allowed us to choose our music and structure the whole day – from the Grand March, to the First Dances, to the genres, etc. We worked with DJ Tom and he was amazing! He did a great job communicating throughout the night and the dance floor was ALWAYS full! So fun 🙂 Thank you! – Becca and Conor @ Plymouth Creek Center

Our DJ Tom was the best!!! He was exactly what we wanted in a DJ – charismatic, fun, and kept the dance floor going all night! He was great with requests and so kind and funny with our guests. He did a great job blending our music for the ceremony. Finding the right DJ was probably our biggest worry during wedding planning, but as soon as we got our call from Tom 2 weeks before the wedding, we knew we were in good hands! – Alyssa and Dustin @ Lowertown Event Center


This company is absolutely Amazing!! We had Tom as our DJ and he was such a pleasure to work with! He played all the music we were hoping for and more. He kept people on the dance floor all night long. We received so many compliments on how fun our dance was! Tom wrote us a personalized note after the night was over and it was so fun to read it! Request Tom, he is one heck of a DJ!! So so happy we choose Instant Request DJ, they know how to have a party 🙂  – Brianna and Bryce @ Graduate Minneapolis


Our DJ (Tom Coughlin) did a fantastic job and suited our needs. He was flexible, professional, and worked extremely hard through all of the heat and event set up. We cannot say enough about how great of a job he did! The sound system worked well for both our ceremony and reception, which exceeded our expectations since it was an outdoor wedding and we didn’t totally know what our day would entail. The lighting also helped create a fun dancing atmosphere. I like how Instant Request has a very reasonable rate and takes into account the customer’s wishes to match up a DJ that fits their needs. Not having to find our own DJ through other sites made it a lot easier on us for planning our wedding.  We couldn’t even find any other service remotely in the same price range for how long our DJ provided his services and the quality was outstanding! Thank you so much for providing such a classy DJ for us and helping us with planning. This process went a lot smoother than we were expecting and can’t say enough about your service and Tom Coughlin as a DJ!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           – Kelly and Bennen @ Private residence
