Hey Nick,

Everything is going great! Thank you so much for helping make our big day so much fun. Please see the testimonial below:

We had never worked with a DJ before and so we were both nervous going into planning our wedding but DJ NICK helped simplify the process. He made himself accessible before the wedding and he was prompt and professional in all our conversations. He helped us plan out several surprise performances and he provided recommendations whenever we needed. On the day of, we were forced to make a sudden change to the lighting scheme, to help accommodate the venue but DJ NICK and his assistants took care of the changes promptly and ensured everything was beautiful.

We were able to easily communicate with Nick by phone and e-mail to set up DJ and lighting services for my brother's engagement party in Pittsburgh. Nick was familiar with our venue and said he was used to making the trip from Ohio, which eased our anxiety of using a non-local vendor. As the date got closer, Nick contacted us to make sure he had all the details he would need and helped me walk through the evening's program. He had good advice based on his experience about timing and brought up some things that we had not thought to ask our venue about--so we appreciated those insights and his attention to detail.
On event night, he arrived early, set everything up and made sure the lighting matched the rest of the decor in the room. The lighting looked very professional and classy (not tacky or over the top). It was a tough crowd to entertain as we were a small group of only 75 with mainly older guests, but he was able to "read the crowd" and play a good mix of old and new tunes to keep everyone moving and happy. I was worried about the energy fizzling out, but he was able to keep everyone engaged on the dance floor until the party ended. We were happy with the experience and recommend Nick for DJ and lighting services.

I would definitely recommend DJ Desi Soundz! We danced the nights away at our sangeet and wedding :)

We considered 10 DJs before deciding on DJ Desi Soundz. They were very reasonably priced, and still had all the bells and whistles - dhol player contact for the baraat, uplighting, monogram for the reception, etc. They were also amenable to our special requirements; for example, creating portable music to be played off of a golf cart for the baraat since their normal car setup wouldn't fit on narrow paths. They did not charge extra for this hassle. They also provided a projector setup upon a last-minute request, for a small extra charge.

DJ Nick, who I was personally in contact with, was always upfront and honest about their needs, which I appreciated. He explained that they need 2 hours to change setups (moving from ceremony location to reception location) which was important for our scheduling, gave honest opinions about lighting ambiance options, etc. He also asked specific questions about our music preferences to help create exactly what we wanted, and was open to and encouraged song requests/lists by us ahead of time.

Overall, all of our guests had a wonderful time with the music, the dance floor was always packed and energetic, and I would recommend DJ Desi Soundz for your event!

Gar Gautam - Brother of the Groom & Best Man Nick at DJ Desi Soundz was a great addition to our celebration. We wanted to make the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding catered towards the Indian side of the family as the wedding was going to be a non-denominational event. Nick helped us introduce our friends and family to a part of our culture that they have not experienced before. The night was full of compliments for Nick’s choice of music throughout the night. We wanted it to stay mainly Indian music throughout the night but Nick was able to read how to change it up and make adjustments while maintaining our original requests. We were not avid listeners to Indian music but knew it must be incorporated given the theme of the event. So we were not sure what songs to suggest or what songs would be played but Nick assured us he is very familiar with music across all genres and songs that will appeal to all ages, and he was right. He delivered better than we expected. We also had a dhol player (drummer) come in and play for us. Nick took it upon himself to reach out to this other musician and coordinate how the music will be handled to make it a cohesive performance. It worked out great. Overall, we really appreciated everything Nick did for us and would recommend him to anyone interested in a DJ for an Indian event.

DJ Nick,

We all had a blast during the event. Thank you so much for accommodating our special requests. I know that the mix Spanish songs were a hit as well, as I saw Xiana’s family enjoying them and cutting loose on the dance floor.

We had a great time and couldn't ask anything more of you. The sound and transitions were on point. Thanks once again.

PS: I liked the color of your shirt and how well you blended in with the rest of the theme.

Rajiv and Nick,

Thank you for the kind email. It was a pleasure working with you guys:) We were very happy with your services.

We must thank you Rajiv for being the announcer for the family portraits! Vivek and I both envisioned that part to be a bit of a mess but you allowed us to sit back while you managed it and got all of our families up to the mandap in a timely manner. We truly appreciate you taking control and remaining professional while getting everyone there!

We received so many compliments on the timeliness of the events and would like to extend our thanks to you both as you played a big part in that.

Nick we enjoyed you being our MC on Saturday evening! You did a great job! We will definitely keep you both in mind for future events. Thank you and best of luck to you both!

Hi Rajiv and Nick,

We just wanted to say that we can’t thank you enough for your spectacular services during my daughter’s sweet 16 birthday party. Everything was above and beyond our expectations. The music selection was just perfect with unbelievable clarity and quality in the sound. You provided great entertainment and we got many compliments from our guests on your services. Also, the DJ booth, LED lights, and overall set up were very tasteful, matching our decor very well. The input you gave us on ideas for the party was very helpful and turned out fabulous.

In addition, your flexibility in your schedules for meeting us in person before the event to plan out all the details was extremely admirable and appreciated. We look forward to having your services again in the future and we can’t thank you enough for making that night one of the most memorable ones that will forever be cherished. It wouldn’t have been possible without your extraordinary services and we would strongly recommend your DJ services to anybody, for any event, without any hesitation.

We had a fantastic weekend! It is so hard to come to terms that it is over. All in all, we think the DJ and lighting services were good. The lighting was fantastic for the room and to accent the tables. I am glad we decided to do uplighting on the back wall behind us.

The music selection for the reception was fantastic. People - Indian and American - really enjoyed dancing to the music selection. Starting off with Wagon Wheel right off the bat was a great choice because a lot of people came up to dance immediately!

The wedding ceremony also went very well. My only comment would be that we did not talk about actually naming each individual bridesmaid and groomsman when they walked down the aisle. When you named each pair, it took away from the background music and the flow, since you had to dampen the music each time you named people coming down the aisle. It is not customary to name each pair as they walk down the aisle - that is for the reception only. Maybe we should have been clearer, but we thought it was assumed that the music would play and they would just walk down in pairs without having their names called. Most of our guests didn't notice, but we and our families did. Not a huge issue at the end of the day, but just wanted you to know for the sake of appropriate feedback.

Hey Nick and Rajiv,

Thank you SO much for all your hard work and providing such great music and entertainment for our wedding. In my opinion, you both did a fantastic job - punctual, professional, accommodating our special requests (i.e. especially working with Deepak's aunt and the AV team at LaCentre to coordinate her special performances.) You went above and beyond, and we really appreciated your efforts. Your DJ booth and speaker system appeared very stylish and professional, and went nicely with our overall decor.

I know Deepak was really happy with his Baraat and all of our guests enjoyed the music at the Sangeet and the Reception. You both also did a great job as the MCs for the evenings, and played all the appropriate songs at the appropriate times. Also, I appreciate you going along with us adjusting the timeline and announcements as the night went on; you did a great job of going with the flow, and made all the appropriate announcements - even regarding the last shuttle departure (which was a last minute change as well!)

Overall, you both did a great job, and I'm really happy that we had you guys as our DJs. We'll definitely be recommending you to everyone -- I already told Durga how happy I was with you guys so she can pass your information on to future clients. Also, I'll tell Kelly to add your names to the Recommended South Asian Wedding Vendor List at LaCentre, so that future brides know that you're available and provide excellent DJ services!

Hi. Thanks for coming to Pittsburgh. For the first time doing an Italian - Indian wedding you did well. The only thing really that I was concerned about was the microphone while the speeches would be made but that was executed great once you found that it was the channeling and didn’t mess up my evening.

For others I got feedback from, the flow of the music was good.

But all in all everyone had a good time and liked the cultural mix of the music.

It was a pleasure to deal with DJ Nick and his group for the DJ performance and uplighting. It was an Indian wedding conducted in an Indo-American style at Kalahari Convention Center. Nick was extremely cooperative and patient with my obsessive compulsive nature of perfection. He joined us in a joint meeting of all the vendors, to coordinate the performance. He took down notes, and suggested better ideas to our plan. He paid meticulous attention to detail, and played to the taste of the crowd and hosts. I was impressed with his skill in getting the entire crowd to the dance floor, so much so that the photographer remarked she had never seen a wedding with 100% of the audience on the dance floor. Love your performance Nick, and we will hire you again for our daughter's wedding.

Hi guys,

Approachability: Very pleasant and receptive to client needs and very open about suggestions but willing to do what the client wants.

Timeliness: Very prompt about replying and getting back to client. Also, arrived at the event on time and was prepared when the program was supposed to start.

Means of communication: Willing to talk to on the phone, meet personally, or even communicate via emails as needed as convenient. Also met with the bride's family in Cleveland to tour the hall to become familiar before the event.

Song collection: Wide variety of collection available and also very willing to play songs that were personally requested. A good collection of hindi songs with a variety of new and mixed old favorites. Fairly good amount of new English songs-and willing to play requested english music so was acceptable. Garba music was also pretty good.

Qualtiy of sound: Good sound, equipment never malfunctioned and was able to provide working microphones which did not encounter any issues.

Misc: Provided a projector too upon request which was much appreciated and functioned well. Very reasonably priced. Very good people who just want the best for the event coordinators and do not try to run the show as they please. They deliver what is promised without a doubt. Also, willing to help out with announcement and emceeing if needed which was not utilized by us but did appreciate their help in calling out lists of names for pictures to be taken.

Overall: Very pleased and would recommend to others.
