If you want a truly traditional touch to your baraat, a live dhol player is the way to go. While plenty of dholi's can play the drum, we pride ourselves on our ability to also MC the baraat (i.e. games, teaching dance moves, calling on family members, etc.) to really engage your guests and make sure everyone enjoys the festivities. If requested, we can also do traditional Punjabi boliyan so please inquire when booking!
If you're planning a sangeet, mendhi, reception, anniversary, or any other special occasion, leave it to us to add that extra energy to your party! We can play with or without music and our dhols can typically be mic'd into the DJ's speaker system, creating an electrifying sound that will keep your guests on the dance floor all night long!
MASTER OF CEREMONIES / EMCEE
Our MC's can work with your DJ or our own to bring much more to your event than making announcements & energizing the crowd. For weddings, formal announcements of all itinerary items like family & grand introductions, speeches, toasts, cake cutting, first dance, etc. are just one element of the services we provide. Seasoned experts in managing event logistics, we also acts as a day-of coordinators/liaisons between the DJ, venue/vendor staffs, and of course our clients to ensure a smooth flow throughout the evening. And to ensure optimal preparation for the big day, we can also assist with itinerary planning and other coordination efforts throughout the planning process.
Dhol Player Entertainment is proud to bring you much more than just amazing drummers. Most of our clients take advantage of several of the following services we provide both in-house, as well as through our partnered performers/vendors.
A packed, energetic, and fun dance floor is not only a guarantee - but with our DJ's, it's only the beginning. Whether you're looking for a more simple setup or a full package with additional audio/visual options, we can handle it all! We use only the best high-end sound, lighting, and video equipment to bring you a full range of services for all your event needs - including but not limited to: baraat party vans, cocktail hour sound systems, custom monograms, atmospheric lighting, intelligent lighting, large flat screen TV’s or projector screens, & more!
Nothing electrifies a crowd like a live singer, so if you're ready to take your event to the next level please inquire about our lineup of artists. We work with singers of various backgrounds and experience levels, including NYC's internationally renowned bhangra star Bikram Singh
BHANGRA DANCE PERFORMANCES AND/OR "MOTIVATIONAL" DANCERS
