"Hey Rana, just got back to work this week after the wedding and honeymoon. I wanted to thank you and your team for the awesome performance. You were so lively and energetic throughout our baraat and reception. You don't know how many compliments I've received about it. It was better than I ever imagined. It was a great way to start off the celebrations... You guys looked and performed so well and professional. I loved the LED dhol also. Certainly an eye-catcher. I know the dhol works with punjabi and hindi music...but the ways in which you performed with the raggaeton and hiphop....STUPENDOUS!!! In short, thanks so much for helping make my wedding a dream come true. Take care and all the best."

"Dholi Rana –
Thank you so much for performing at our wedding. We are continuously hearing rave reviews about our wedding, and particularly your dhol performances throughout the day - from the baraat, to the reception, to the after party – were definitely one of the highlights. You were awesome getting everyone pumped up! You added a live element to the event that took the party to another level. A true professional and one that I fully endorse! Thanks for being part of the day and making it one to remember!!! "

"We have seen dhol players in many weddings and at other events but Dholi Rana was by far the best one we've EVER seen. The hardest part was finding the right dhol player, but with a reference from a college friend, I knew I made the right decision when we worked with Ranbir Singh sitting in Minnesota, while he was on the east cost, which is where the Mehndi was as well. He was very professional and laid everything out in a very simple way for us to understand all of the options we had. Thank the technology gods for making our lives easier to coordinate sitting in two different states, but majority of it had to do with the attention to details and communication that Ranbir provided us with. The day of the event, many people asked us who the dhol player was and where we hired Dholi Rana, because the service, sound and expertise were all truly at its best. Ranbir was very easy going and went with the flow as there was no itinerary of plans for the Mehndi. Best part was that he even offered to play the dholki (little dhol) for us if we wanted to although we didn't get time to make use of this amazing service that was included in his package. All in all, moving forward, this is the one and only dhol service we're recommending. Best. Live. Dhol. Experience. Ever.
Thank you Ranbir and Dholi Rana. You had us at the first dhol beat."

I take this opportunity to thank you for your professional services as DHOLI at our son's wedding at the Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange on July 5,2014.
You were professional in performing your services at this important occasion in our life. You arrived on time for the BARAAT and made us all dance to the lovely beats of drums. This was an important and enjoyable time during the Baraat. You, in fact, jump started the event. Let me also tell you that you are a leader; I say so because you lead the Baraat, on your own initiative, from the starting point to inside the Chateau all the way to the banquet hall.
You made a big difference in day's celebrations. I wish you all the best in your career and will highly recommend you to anyone looking for services of DHOLI.
Once again, I thank you and express my pleasure to have you at our son's wedding. You may feel free to contact me as a reference at any time."

Thank you very much for being a part of my housewarming party on Jan 5 2019 !
It was a great experience with your dhol service , we thoroughly enjoyed it and the guests were up and dancing through out the night . If it wasn’t for the dhol there would have been something missing so yes it definitely added spice to the party . I would recommend Ranbir for any future events , it is a no brainer that I cannot expect anyone else playing better than him ..
10/10 - way to go Rana 👍👍 "
