Hi Amit,I wanted to tell you again how much we enjoyed working with you for Julia and Siddharth's wedding. The multi-cultural Baraat was a huge success! Your dhol player was great and offered good instruction to the group. Siddharth had a blast atop his white horse surrounded by family and friends in full celebration. I'm sure that this was the first Baraat in Concord Center and people were out on their front steps to watch the procession pass by. Later, at the reception, the Bhangra dancers were a huge hit and were very effective at getting others out on the dance floor. Many of our guests said it was the most interesting and fun wedding ever and much of that is due to the services you provided. I would certainly recommend Dholee Entertainment to anyone and would be happy to be a reference for you. You were very easy to work with and delivered just as you said. Thanks so much!

Dholee Entertainment Services provided dholi services and dandiya dancers for my brother's Nikah/Recepion on July 14th 2012. I was so pleased and entertained by both services. Everyone was punctual and professional. Amit played the dhol with so much enthusiasm and really got our baraaties dancing. He felt the pulse of the crowd and involved mostly everyone. We all had a lot of fun. The dandiya dancers were also a hit. Not only did they do a little performance but then taught guests how to dance and were able to get one routine taught. They were very talented and patient. Lot of guests told me it was a wonderful idea and they had a lot of fun. All in all, the evening was a blast and I would recommend Dholee Entertainment services to any bride & groom planning an Indian wedding. Thanks a lot Amit for making it so wonderful!
Amit / Dholee were recommended to me by a close friend for my engagement party for 250 in July 2010 and we were not disappointed. The preparation and professionalism displayed was fantastic. The DJ and Amit working together was brilliant! Amit had all our guests jumping, dancing, and cheering for more - the beat was funky, fresh, and above all everything flowed.
They were so good I hired them again for my wedding the following year in July 2011 and again they he brought his A-GAME to the place and where we had nearly 500 guests attending. Again he showed so much enthusiasm and innovation that I would happily recommend him and the group to anyone. - In a crowd of 500 the attention was on Amit and his skills - I think that says it all!

If you are looking for a dholi, please don't any further than Amit Patel. Amit did both our events and he did a fantastic job. Amit's rates are definitely fair, you will not find a better deal than him. Apart from the financial aspect, Amit is very good at his job. He makes the party come alive. He mixes desi and american music and make it work really well. Sign Amit for your event and you will not regret it!

Words can’t express the quality of service that Amit brings to the table. His brilliant style of dholi talents creates a predominant vibe on the dance floor. Guests are constantly intrigued by his performance style, and how he’s able to incorporate the fusion between his dholi beats and various genres of music which he is able to blend it with. Not only is Amit the best dholi performer we’ve ever witnessed, but his professionalism, presentation, and enthusiasm just makes him that much more special. After being in the entertainment business for many years, we highly recommend Amit’s talents over any other dholi player we know. He will surely engage everyone’s attention!

We were most impressed with how Amit drummed his way in the wedding hall, all my guests were stunned and the mood became ecstatic! Amit not only arrived early on the day but cooperated throughout the process. The bit was him giving my sister's event that extra touch by integrating himself with my family members and guests. I have already booked him for my elder sister's wedding in July of 2012
Dholee provides a bespoke performance for any event. On two recent occasions, the players were given distinct and demanding briefs, playing in front of invited audiences ranging from 50 to 300. The dholis ability to tailor its provision was enhanced considerably by the quality of performance - something which was well reflected through audience feedback
Not only was their execution superb, but they present themselves as a highly skilled and professional outfit. What is perhaps most striking is the integrity of their performance, conveying a real passion for what they do. This, combined with a deep musical and historical knowledge, results in an experience with any audience - be it as observers or participants - will find memorable over a period of time.
Just wanted to say thank you sooooo much for an awesome baraat and reception!!! Everyone was talking about it all day and said that it really was one of the biggest highlights of the day. You were awesome getting everyone pumped up! Yeah we had some rain but it definitely didn't stop our parade!"
You were very prompt, professional at all times, courteous to guests, facilitated on the dance floor, respected our dance list requests (70s/80s/Bhangra) and in fact the did some amazing beats to Billie Jean! I will certainly use your services again. A pleasure to work with and will pass your name along to anyone needing a differentiator at their event!

Amit is very motivated, sensational, supportive and an excellent Dholi. I have seen Amit playing dhol since he was just 10 years old and was accompanying his father for music concerts. He is naturally talented. Amit has been playing dhol with my live garba group "Sargam Ki Sham" and he rocks the crowd with his magical rhythm creating a joyous atmosphere. I would definitely recommend Amit for any occasion as a dholi.

As bhangra and Indian music earned its spot in the limelight, the increase of live musicians, dholis and Indian DJs in the Boston area has increased by the ten fold. Part of this influence is partly due to the committment of those loving and practicing this music before the fad. In Boston, DJs such as myself, Bhambhi Brothers and DJ Bunty wanted to show its people how Indian music is done, and when it comes to the Dhol, there is no one better than Dholi Amit. Amit and I have performed several hundred events over the past decade and there are too many reasons why. What makes Amit unique is that as the Indian genre evolves, so does his technique. He keeps it fresh! Sometimes traditional, sometimes fusionistic, and best of all, always unique and influential. Keep it up bro!

Jas was amazing! Obviously you can’t start the party without a dhol player. And Jas did just that. Thank you so much for making our day truly special!
We were in need a of a dhol player desperately and could not find one here in Minnesota, one of my girlfriends had suggested Jas. And like a true professional with amazing talent he made our baraat and reception even more memorable.
We flew Jas all the way from Chicago because our DJ (Sunny Banga) had nothing but good things to say about him. And did we make the right decision! Jas was awesome to work with. He rocked the baraat as the whole resort watched in amazement. To this day we still have our friends talking about the dhol player.
We were recommended Jas by our horse guy Billie from Maharaja Farms. Like a true professional he rocked the dhol with his amazing beats. Jas is extremely talented, and this showed with him playing the dhol to a very high standard. His professionalism and pleasant attitude made our occasion even more enjoyable.
A true professional with unbelievable talent. He rocked the baraat and really got the party started!
With Jas at the helm of the dhol you can never go wrong. Trust me you wont be disappointed. With his unprecedented skills he will sure to rock your event just as he did with mine.
Jas was the dholi through out our whole wedding weekend frenzy. Jas did everything from the lady sangeet, to the late night bhangra sessions, the baraat, and finally the reception. We have heard many other dhol players in the past but no one comes near the skill set of Jas. Spending the whole weekend with our close friends and family, Jas easily blended in with everyone. We had a blast, and are looking forward to another festive weekend with Jas coming up in August 2012!
Jas played at several occasions at our event. He did an amazing job and was extremely professional, punctual, and reliable. He just didn’t play the dhol but he interacted with the crowd and created an electric atmosphere. If you’re ever in need of a dhol player, without any hesitation contact Jas.
Out of all the vendors that we hired, Jas had to be the most laid back person. Overall he was very easy to work with and mainly very approachable. His communication was top notch, as he would reply to our emails promptly. Working for the first time with our dj he rocked the reception, it seemed like they had been partners working together for years. Thanks Jas for everything.
