What Our Clients Have to Say
Simply put, our clients are the reason we do this. They are the measuring stick for our success. Below are some thoughts on our performance.
Shyam & Meghan Majmundar
Everyone loved you man! They are all like I am booking that DJ. I gave your number to like 5 people afterwards. No joke, I am really glad you did the wedding and were able to be such a BIG part of it!
Rockleigh, NJ - April 2019
Jag & Sandy Sekhon
Thank you so much Neil! Since the wedding was on our home turf (Mexico), we really wanted to add an Indian flair to Jag and Sandy’s fusion wedding (Punjabi / Mexican) and you were it! We really appreciate you flying to the west coast of Mexico all the way from New York and adding so much energy to the Baraat and Reception. A lifetime of gratitude from our family to you.
Wendy Aguilar - Sister of the Bride
Isla Navidad, Mexico - February 2019
Ansh & Avanika Grover
Neil - Thanks again for coming to JAX. You were great for both of the days! Would you be interested in coming again for another wedding on December 28, 2019 in Ft. Lauderdale? I guess you made some fans! We really appreciate the energy you brought and our guests loved you.
Ranjeeta Grover - Mother of the Groom
Amelia Island, FL - December 2018

Neil - you were FANTASTIC! Amazing that you knew Brad as well. Such a great job!
Jaishree Kapoor - wife of Vikas Kapoor (CEO) - New York, NY - November 2018
Chris & Rena Persaud
Neil - you did an awesome job with Ravi! All of our friends said this was the most lit wedding / cocktail party they have been to. The direction and knowledge level you have really show why you are always booked and why it’s so hard to grab dinner with you. When our planner cancelled (I will not say the name via email, but people can ask me), you literally told me not to worry about it. The reason I actually did not as we moved on during the day was because of you. We love you! The RBS family loves you! Thank you SOOO MUCH AGAIN!!
New Brunswick, NJ - October 2018
Rohit & Megan Anand
Just wanted to reach out and say what an absolute amazing job you and Chad did this past Friday and Saturday. Friday was sooo amazing that people didn’t understand how to party for a whole other day haha.
Thank you so much!!! I wanted to share your information with my friends!
Loved having you as part of our wedding. Thank you again.
New York, NY - September 2018
Karan & Nandini Chaabra
Neil - I got amazing feedback from the bride and groom. You were on point and thank you so much for rocking the music, being an awesome MC (without being corny and overbearing), and obviously crushing it on the dhol. I truly hope to work with you more often. Until our paths cross again!
Manish Goyal - family friend / wedding organizer
West Orange, NJ - July 2018
Ben & upasana Davies
Amazing job with the music, dhol, and MCing. Both days were everything I could have imagined and more. Neil and Mike really made our wedding special and brought energy to the party. I did not get to leave before you left last night, but I would like to send you something in appreciation of a job extremely well done!
Port Jervis, NY - July 2018
ANu & Cassandra Mohan
Hi Neil - I just wanted to say thank you for a great job on Wednesday (July 4th). Our guests really enjoyed the music and the energy! Thank you so much for helping with such a big day in our lives. I am one of the few that looked you up and that makes what you do even more impressive.
Long Eddy, NY - July 2018
Parag & Sherry Viradia
We had Neil and Ravi for our Sangeet and Wedding in June. They did everything right and Neil’s confidence during my initial phone call definitely showed for our events. They had been to the venue many times before for other weddings and were very comfortable with how to structure things. Everything was just really strong especially the music and MCing. The only thing I wish he did was take a credit card haha. Honestly, they both were a BIG part of an awesome 2 days.
Woodcliff Lakes, NJ - June 2018
Neil & Rebecca Tuli
Mike, Neil, and Ravi - Thank you so much for doing all 3 of our wedding events, including an absolutely unforgettable dance party and introduction. Mike rocked the first 2 events and Neil and Ravi capped off the grand finale on Saturday night. We had about 400 guests and literally every single one of them was on the dance floor. People wanted to keep the party going so long that Ravi played for the afterparty in the hotel and kept it going until about 3 am.
We were really lucky to have these guys and everything went better than we could imagine.
Boston, MA - June 2018
Private / Undisclosed 50th Birthday Celebration
Dear Neil - Thank you for working with Van Wyck & Van Wyck on the recent 50th birthday celebration that took place in New York City. Your set invigorated the dance floor and helped to keep energy high amidst an event that featured Snoop Dog and Steve Angello. I look forward to future collaborations and new opportunities to work together.
Bronson Van Wyck - founder
New York, NY - May 2018
Anand & Kristin Trivedi
Neil - You rock!. Neil was a referral from my good friend Kiran Kothari (Neil did his daughter’s wedding about a year and a half ago). He was very responsive with emails, phone calls, and even recommendations. My entire family had a meeting with Neil and his experience and commitment to the event are very evident. For the Baraat, we had an issue with the equipment, but he was able to adjust so fast and still make it great. That was extremely impressive. The reception was as expected - all of our guests were dancing to both American and desi music the entire night. We knew our guests would dance, but some of the songs were so great. Overall, He and Ravi work really hard and do an excellent job. Thank you again! Bharati Trivedi - Mother of the Groom
Princeton, NJ - April 2018
Chris & Maliha Dobrowolski
Neil - Exceptional job at the Palace in Somerset. You are amazing at fusion. Way to rock both sets and my family loved you. Thank you so so much!
Somerset, NJ - March 2018
Baqar & mashal Sajjad
Neil - Thank you so much for making both days sooo much fun! Awesome job with everything top to bottom - from the DJing, MCing, to the dhol playing. Everyone LOVED it and really appreciated how you ran the program. Again...Awesome job! Look forward to staying in touch!
Parsippany, NJ - December 2017
hirsha & mamta venkataraman
You guys absolutely crushed it and people have been complementing us on the music literally since the moment the dance floor ended. Our guests had a blast and it was because you guys put so much effort into what you do. You guys operated on a time crunch without a proper sound check and handled it like champs. We were very happy with the introductions and the MC duties overall. Not to mention, your dhol playing was an absolute HIT for both the Baraat and the Reception. You made our dream wedding come true and I knew that when I hired you, I would get nothing less than the best service. Neil and Kash - We can't thank you guys enough.
Tannersville, PA - December 2017
pratik & chetna patel
You were awesome! Everyone in our family loved you again even after Tarak and Khusbhu's wedding - which was also awesome. Great job again with running the show and keeping the crowd engaged the entire night.
Minal Patel - sister of the groom
Randolph, NJ - December 2017
Sonny & Lihn Hyun
Neil and Akash - Thank you guys SOO much! We had an incredible night. Everyone was raving about you guys! It was everything I wanted! So funny that you and Sonny knew each other. Have you ever had any of your bride's shuffling on the dance floor? See you guys soon!
Old Bridge, NJ - October 2017
Maruti & Anjni bhamidipati
This was the 2nd family wedding that Neil did for us. The first one was my son's wedding in Santorini, Greece. I cannot believe that I am saying this, but he actually did an even better job at my daughter, Anjni's. He brought in an electric violinist for the cocktail hour and the reception with whom he mixed Dhol with on certain occasions. His performance with Magic Mike really goes to show his dedication to the craft and focus on keep getting better. Thank you wholeheartedly once again on a job well done.
Arun Patel - Father of the bride
Sussex, NJ - October 2017
Saket & Shereen Agrawal
I wanted to thank you and Ravi again for doing an amazing job on my wedding day. People are still raving about the music and all the fun things you did with the dance floor and how great the program went. I will never forget how much you and Ravi did to make the day incredibly special. Please pass this message to Ravi as well. THANK YOU!!!
Cleveland, OH - September 2017
Zaheer & humA rangwala
Thanks so much Neil! Great job with keeping the crowd going. You are extremely talented and I was glad to have you at my wedding! You certainly did not lie when you said that you have been doing this a long time. All the best going forward!
Neptune, NJ - August 2017
Deep & Kaitlin Singh
Executing on a 3 day destination wedding event is difficult, but you guys made it seamless. I can see the reason why you are successful. There is such an attention to detail coupled with a personal touch in everything you do. We loved getting to know you in the last year and my entire family loved you. You and Ravi killed it! We could not have expected anything better from you guys! See at all of the family parties going forward.
Tucker's Point, Bermuda - July 2017
Kamal & ritika Rana
Everything was perfect. Everyone had positive things to say about the DJ / MC so thanks for making it amazing! Between my family and Ritika's, we got a lot of compliments on DJ music, crowd control, crowd build, and of course Dhol! We will see you at Gandhi's wedding in a few months. Until then, thank you so much man!
Somerset, NJ - July 2017
neeraj & preeti mehta
Neil - sorry I could not get back to you earlier. Thank you for an awesome time. Being a musician myself, you were awesome, especially with the band. Really loved everything you did and keeping the energy up for everything.
Somerset, NJ - June 2017
Ravi & drashti patel
Neil - It was great working with you from the start. We booked early and we now know it was a smart decision. You worked extremely well with our awesome planner Hasina from Royal Charms and our other vendors (Fine Art, Chand Palace, Abhishek). I heard the Baraat was amazing and could not be happier with how the reception went (Intros, dance floor, etc.). Also, thanks for the shout out to USP. We love you guys!
Springfield, PA - May 2017
Steve & sonia keller
Thank you so much for your services on our wedding day! Everyone is still talking about our events with such excitement, particularly the baraat. Everyone was so pumped , and being a mixed wedding, we appreciate you leading the way. It was truly the best day of our lives and thank you wholeheartedly for playing such a huge part in it
Syracuse, NY - May 2017
Sam & Monica Rosen
Neil - Thank you for an outstanding performance and coordinating everything from New Jersey. Our guests from all over the world including many from India and Dubai loved your work. The Baraat and Reception were beautiful because of your energy and enthusiasm. You really set the tone for a wonderful day for my family. Remarkable job again at my daughter's wedding at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriot.
Milind Ajinkja - Father of the Bride
Chantilly, VA - May 2017
CT & Anisa Sinha
Neil you rocked out! You were awesome and the pleasure was all ours my brother. Thank you for everything especially with coordinating between both venues. It is such a small world and glad to see a number of my friends and family already knew you. I'll make sure to refer you to all my friends that are having upcoming weddings.
Woodland Park, NJ - February 2017
SALT Experimental Marketing - product Launch - Hero Glamour
It was a great experience working with Neil and his team on the launch of Hero Motorcorp's Glamour motorcycle in Buenos Aires. We were connected via Mumbia based BlackHat Talent. The launch was one of the biggest productions ever in Argentina attended by key members in the international media. A talented, organized, smart, and creative musician.
Buenos Aires, Argentina - January 2017
sandip & suheily Pandya
Neil was very flexible to work with and gave us great recommendations on songs. We had a Latin and Gujarati wedding which had a naturally vibrant crowd. He really was able to play to the crowd and have everyone get energized. Thank you for a great time and keeping it creative! Surprised at how many people already knew him and his work at our wedding. Grateful for a small world and a job well done.
Somerset, NJ - December 2016
Jamie & anjali smith
Just wanted to say thank you SO much for playing at the sangeet & wedding and for all of your flexibility on timing! We've had so many people comment on how awesome you were and how much energy you brought both nights. It was absolutely our dream weekend. We are so glad that we were able to work with you! The two days were incredible and we are so excited for the videography and photographs!
Philadelphia, PA - October 2016
Rahul & Shebani Arora
Neil Desai is phenomenal! The videos he showed us were great, but his live performance was even better. He was phenomenal! He worked extremely well with our celebrity DJ Baba Kahn from Toronto. His MCing, event execution, timing, and dhol percussion created an unforgettable experience for our wedding and reception. Keep rocking!
Washington DC - September 2016
Nimish & christin patel
Very pleasant throughout the pre-planning process and amazing execution as the MC. There was very little sales pressure and absolutely no oversell. Neil gave us exactly what we were looking for. He was well regarded by our other vendors (Wedding Design, Moghul, and even our pandit / priest). A number of our guests were blown away by the energy and talent level. Very honest, straightforward, and extremely talented! He really delivered. Btw...my parents also loved him because he's originally from Valsad.
Valley Forge, PA - September 2016
Arpan & sonam patel
You were awesome! You got me to dance...and I don't dance. Thank you so much for doing such a phenomenal job at our wedding and reception. My friend Manan put me in touch with Neil and everything was smooth sailing from there. I am doing my residency in Chicago and was initially stressed about how everything would turn out because I was not there every step of the way. Neil eased every stress Sonam and I had. He was so organized from the start and great to both of our families and friends. People have not forgotten about how much fun our wedding was and it's been 4 months. Thanks again to our awesome team of Neil Desai and Raj Minocha.
Somerset, NJ - August 2016
doug & Ahillia Latimer
Thank you so much for the entertainment on Saturday Neil! Everyone had so much fun. You were not lying when you said you were comfortable with mixed weddings (American - West Indian). From the bottom of our hearts, you were GREAT and we really appreciate it!
Secaucus, NJ - July 2016
Punit & Leslie Sarna
OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE EXPERIENCE!!!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH NEIL!!! Punit saw Neil perform at a wedding in California last year and could not stop raving about how much fun he had at his cousin's wedding because of Neil and his team. He was equally fantastic at our Sangeet and Wedding events. There was a significant amount of negotiation in terms of pricing, but Neil was willing to work with our budget. He gave insightful opinions on the direction of our events. The music was exceptional. Neil and Magic Mike really catered to both crowds (Cuban and Indian). You could see the experience and confidence play out in the performance. Muchos Gracias!
Greenville, NC - June 2016
mithun & riddhi jani
I just wanted to thank you for doing such an outstanding job at my wedding and reception!!! You were so great!!! Everyone loved you. Especially when you played the disco dancer song for Mithun and the garba song for me. It was such a creative segment. I was sooo happy with your work!!!
South Brunswick, NJ - May 2016
PAUL & NEHA GREWAL
We could not be happier in having Neil perform at our wedding. He rocked it! He has a lot of energy to him and it shows. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. The booking process was very straight forward and he was able to give us the "pros and cons" of the services offered. Thank you again for an amazing job!
Brooklyn, NY - May 2016
kush & Rimple Patel
Neil and Akash really blew us away. They were on top of everything the day of the wedding from the Baraat to the Ceremony to the Reception. We have heard Akash spin before at a few weddings and knew the skill level, but the thing that stood out here was the care for our event from both of them. There were some difficulties with our venue, but they worked through them and did really great work as a DJ / MC team. Neil was a great MC - versatile, vocal, and able to judge our crowd. Akash - great set with what we wanted to have played.
Fords, NJ - May 2016
harsh & arti pandya
Neil really exceeded my expectations. So much so that I personally called him the day after the wedding and thanked him for such an awesome job. All of my guests loved the hype he brought! I heard of Neil before because of his popularity in the Indian wedding market, but his performance is what has me really recommending him. Thank you again for a great job!
Arlington, VA - March 2016
amit & sanam ravani
Neil - Thank you for a wonderful time! Everyone thought you were awesome with everything you did. You have a great personality that is seen through your work. I will be referring others to you!!! My son loved it tremendously!
Nutan Ravani - Mother of the Groom
Philadelphia, PA - March 2016
sohail & kathryn shaikh
You are exceptionally gifted!!! Last night was sickkk!!! Cannot thank you enough. Tons of compliments on your performance. Cannot wait to see the video! You did my brother's wedding a few years back, but you were even better at mine. This really shows the dedication to your craft. Thank you sooo much again!
Old Bridge, NJ - December 2015
Satish & aarti patel
Very easy to work with, organized, and responsive. He is highly skilled and would be plug and play at any event. Thanks again man for rocking out!
Garfield, NJ - December 2015
Cire & Samapti Taylor
Neil is extremely talented. I cannot stress that enough. We had a mixed wedding (Bengali / African American) and all of our guests loved him. He is just very good at what he does. The experience and skill level really shine. I hope to see him soon. Thank you again Neil!
Roslyn, NY - November 2015
ravi & monica singhvi
Neil came highly recommended from our wedding planner Mayank - Platinum Dreams Events. We can say that we understand why. Neil flew out from NYC and did not skip a beat. He absolutely crushed it on the mic and the dhol. He ran the show in sync with Mayank to perfection. The music and production work from Vik and Neil were very impressive.
Orlando, FL - November 2015
Anupam & COnnie chakravarty
Neil gave me the best Baraat I could have possibly imagined. Performing at a Bengali and Irish wedding is no easy task, but he absolutely killed it. He fused with Connie's uncle on bagpipe and gave the baraat so much hype with his MCing. Unsurprisingly, a good amount of my guests were familiar with Neil's work from prior events so there was no doubt in my mind. Unforgettable experience that I cannot thank him more for.
Washington, DC - October 2015
ameesh & natasha kapoor
Neil and Akash were recommended to us by my sister Prianka. She saw them at a wedding in Greece and insisted that we fly Akash and Neil out to the west coast for our wedding reception. The music was a great mix of punjabi, top 40, and hindi. Everyone was dancing all night long and our introductions were AMAZING! A really solid team that cares!
San Francisco, CA - September 2015
ANU & NEHA SHAH
Neil and Mohit were exceptional. From the music to the performance, everything was great. It was great to know that they both work together so often. Amazing Baraat Neil! Check out our highlight video and you will see why.
Springfield, PA - August 2015
Ashesh & nika Patel
What a squad! That is all I can say. Neil and Akash were instrumental in making our Santorini destination wedding a success. As you can imagine, there was a significant amount of pre - planning that went into our events. Neil was very responsive and vested in our wedding. From the helicopter entrance to the introductions to the fireworks, he was great in leading. Akash DJed for 5 hours during our reception without interruption. I think he set a record. Amazing work fellas!
Santorini, Greece - July 2015
maulik & meghna thakkar
Neil and Ravi did a very good job of getting our crowd involved. We are from central PA and had a very large number of non Indian guests attend our wedding. We were concerned that they would not have as good of a time, but boy were we wrong. Neil is really one of the best MCs I have seen. He ensured that everyone had a great time. Ravi's music was very concentrated in what we wanted. They were great and could not have been happier with having them perform.
Elysburgh, PA - June 2015
SATESH & VISHWANI SINGH
No complaints here. Neil was great to work with. In terms of timing, follow up, and performance, the guy is great and very flexible. There was a special request that I had which required coordination with our Tassa band. Neil was able to meet up to make sure everything was on point and coordinated perfectly.
Queens, NY - May 2015
Sooraj & Pallavi poonawala
Thank you so much for everything you did for us. You guys did a PHENOMENAL job. Pallavi and I could not be happier. I know you had to deal with a lot of different people bothering you. We really appreciate you keeping all that stuff to yourself during the events. We got so many compliments on the DJing, MCing, and Dhol. Again, we could not be more happy we went with you guys.
Atlantic City, NJ - March 2015
As a NYC Tech start up, we LOVE creativity. This is why we LOVED Neil. Thanks again!
New York, NY - December 2014
indian students association at columbia university
They have been doing this event for a few years. Great work every year! Love it!
New York, NY - November 2014
neal & anjali dahiya
Excellent job by Neil and Ravi. Magic Mike introduced us to Neil and I cannot say enough about the level of service. Neil and Ravi clearly had a lot of team work experience and it showed. Everything was smooth from the Baraat to the Ceremony to the Reception. Because our guests were having such a great time, we extended into overtime for 1 hour. Great time and special thanks to Neil and Ravi!
Cortlandt Manor, NY - September 2014
mohammad & nazish Sheikh
Thank you for a great job with a lot of energy. Our families were not the typical conservative Pakistani families and Neil was great in bringing a lot of energy to our event. He is a very very talented percussion with a lot of vocal skill. Our friend Asma recommended him to us and we were not disappointed. His pricing is slightly higher than most, but he is worth it.
South Brunswick, NJ - August 2014
nirav & Reena shah
Thank you so much guys! Our wedding could not have been a success without you guys! As a DJ and MC combo, you cannot get much better. This was the 3rd wedding of the summer that we saw them perform. Our wedding was the 3rd, but Neil made sure it was different than the other two. He is very creative with his delivery on the microphone and Akash is unbelievable at mixing. Our wedding was a non stop party and these guys kept it going.
East Rutherford, NJ - July 2014
gunjan & bhakti SHAH
Great work Neil! You really kept the crowd going. If this makes sense, Neil has a PHD in South Asian weddings. He is so well versed with the entire process that it is hard to believe. He really makes you feel comfortable and gives value added advice to the event. There is no oversell and he works within a budget. Oh yea, aside from this, the music was great!
Hicksville, NY - July 2014
Vikash & nikki Patel
AMAZING WORK! Both of our families LOVED you! Neil was a phenomenal MC. This is not an understatement. We watched our reception video and were blown away again. All of our guests were dancing non stop the entire night. The baraat was insane, the ceremony was tastefully done, and the reception was so much fun. We saw Neil perform at another wedding and expected a great event, but what is incredible is the respect he has among venues. Our matre'de at the Hanover Marriot spoke very highly of him. Very very positive experience.
East Hanover, NJ - June 2014
salman & NIDA Khan
Neil and Himanshu were a great team. The Baraat was very well done in the sense that Neil kept it lively yet processional. The dance party had all of the right elements of music and percussion. Very good job! I have already passed on the information to some of my other family members. He does get booked fair quickly so keep that in mind.
Bensalem, PA - May 2014
Tahir & nida Raza
We were referred to Neil by my cousin Aleeza. She mentioned that Neil had been doing large scale South Asian weddings in the NYC metro area for quite some time. I can safely say that my little cousin gave us a great referral. Neil was very detail oriented and knowledgeable. He knew and was sensitive to many aspects of our Islamic ceremonies. The music was very lively during the mendhi night and more toward the conservative side for the other events. His MCing was very elegant, something that we were very appreciative of because most MCs typically overdo it. All in all, very good experience and highly recommended.
Long Branch, NJ - June 2012
