Sangeet at Ronald Reagan Center in Washington D.C., and Wedding at J.W. Marriott in Washington D.C.
“We had a great experience with Planet DJ and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a DJ. Monica and Ateet worked with us on 3 separate events throughout our wedding weekend including setting up audio for a professional singer and DJ’ing our reception. They were extremely responsive throughout the entire process and worked with us to ensure we got exactly what we wanted. Everything was flawlessly executed throughout the weekend and our friends loved the music that Monica played on Saturday night. “
Wedding at Hilton Rockville, Rockville, Maryland
“We are more than happy we chose Planet DJ Productions as our DJ for the reception! The ambience looked amazing and exactly as we expected. We had a skit at the reception and Ateet and his team ended up improving the sound quality that gave it a theatrical effect. The spotlights/ intelligent lighting moved from one character to the other flawlessly. The songs kept playing all night without any pauses one after the other, thanks to Monica! We danced all night and my legs still hurt (one week after the wedding!). The reception evening went by smoothly regardless. I have never seen an event where the mic does not squeak, but our reception sound system was impeccable, thanks to Ateet! True professionalism I must say. We bought a couple of GOBO monograms and textures and hence the price shot up but they were worth every penny spent! Great work guys!” -Fareen & Kamran
Wedding at Lauxmont Farms in Wrightsville, Pennsylvania
“Ateet, Monica and team were so great for our wedding and so very easy to work with as we were out of state. They are so organized, even my wedding planners were raving about their client intake website which covered so many questions and was so comprehensive. My fiance and I loved that they could incorporate so many different types of music in order to make our crowd happy which was comprised of Indian, Jewish, American and Hispanic guests and Monica hit it all! My favorite part of the wedding was actually something that Monica thought of which was to have Indian music playing during the ceremony at the point where my husband tied the Mangalsutra and they KILLED IT! It is honestly my favorite memory of the ceremony and I can’t thank them enough for the perfect execution. The team was great and my venue was not easy to work with in terms of location and onsite management so I give major props to the sound technicians for doing an awsome job for our outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour (especially in the heat). Thank you for making our wedding memorable and working with us in such a timely and professional manner.”
Wedding at Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland
“You know when a guy just has it all together? Enter Ateet Ahuja. If he wasn’t a fearless entrepreneur, you’d find him as a name partner at a global consulting firm – that’s the level he plays at. One phone call with him and you’ll see what I mean.
We have no doubt he’s the hardest working guy in the business. You simply can’t operate with that level of commitment, attention to detail, and client focus unless you are. We were so impressed by his process of making us feel understood – we asked him to DJ himself – and it was the best decision we made.
People will tell their children stories of this dance floor. The unbelievable energy, the ridiculous dance offs, losing all track of time – let’s just say my Indian aunt who is in a wheelchair shut down the floor chanting one more song well after midnight.
Special credit to Jake and Sam for creating an ambiance that brought life to the room. The Planet DJ team doesn’t just play music, they don’t just show up, they don’t just sit back in the booth. What they do, and why you hire them, is because they create unbelievable experiences through lights and sounds. Couple that with their focus on client service, discipline, organization, and commitment to quality – as you close out your own dance floor – you’ll realize hiring was one of the best decisions you ever made.”
Wedding at Castle Hill Cider in Keswick, Virginia
“Planet DJ was fantastic and handled all the sound & music for the entire day from the ceremony to cocktail hour until the last song of the night. Ateet was extremely organized and with their online planning tool had all the music ready to go and did a great job MC’ing the program for us as well. Our venue (Castle Hill) was a little unique so they put in the extra mile to travel all the way to Charlottesville for our wedding walk thru and came early to make sure all the power & connections were ready to go in our rustic barn setting. Their attention to detail was essential and made sure everything went off perfectly on the actual wedding day. We had a Jewish / Christian / Indian wedding so they were able to get all aspects of the different cultures down with starting out with the Horah / Mezinka and playing some Bollywood music to get the crowd going on the dance floor. Planet DJ was one of the best wedding vendors we picked and we’re extremely thankful!”
Wedding at National Press Club in Washington D.C.
“We used Planet DJ for our Hindu and Christian wedding ceremonies, an afternoon tea hour, cocktail hour, and reception and they absolutely nailed it!! Our wedding was a really long day and we had very specific requests throughout–we wanted romantic Bollywood songs for our tea hour, classic rock for cocktail hour, southern soul for the dinner, Indian flute music during our Hindu ceremony, and specific tracks for our processionals/recessional during our Christian ceremony, and Planet DJ’s DJ Monica completely blew us away. Planet DJ was extremely flexible in the weeks leading up to our wedding, when we changed some of our songs and added several events to the docket, and DJ Monica did an excellent job emceeing our reception, to include doing a live fade in/out of several songs for our first dance, providing a specific track and microphone for a vocal performance by my mom, and mixing both Western-style and Bollywood-style dance tracks for the dance floor. Who else could mix the likes of Justin Timberlake and Nicki Minaj with multiple Bollywood songs and have an entire ballroom of guests of varying backgrounds raging the whole night?? It was awesome. Planet DJ also provided two beautifully lit-up trusses with moving lights that provided spotlighting, dance floor lighting, and even mood lighting during dinner, which all added such great ambiance to our event. Their online system is super clever and allows you to submit and change all of your requests in one place, making it very easy and convenient to communicate and make changes. All in all we were absolutely thrilled with Planet DJ and highly recommend them for any wedding, but especially those requiring a multicultural touch.”
Four Seasons in Baltimore, Maryland
“We were extremely happy with everyone at Planet DJ Productions! We used Ateet and his team for our DJ/audio and lighting needs and we were not disappointed. Our DJ Monica was fantastic and accommodating for our last minute song requests. We had a fantastic mix of Indian and American music throughout the night. Overall, we had the best night ever and this group helped make our night EPIC! We also had a photo booth provided by this company, which was a hit with our guests. Would highly recommend this company and would use again!!”
Sangeet at Kunsthistoriches Museum in Vienna, Austria and Wedding Ceremony at Stadtpalais Liechtenstein – City Palace in Vienna, Austria and Wedding Reception at Palais Liechtenstein – Garden Palace in Vienna, Austria
“I don’t think it’s possible to explain how much Ateet and Planet DJ Productions mean to us. They were an incredibly integral part of our wedding festivities which comprised of 4 wedding events in Vienna, Austria, throughout which they not only took care of logistics but helped to make it the most unforgettable weekend of our lives. They took the challenge of a fusion Indian and Chinese wedding and set a new standard beyond what we’ve ever experienced. We still pinch ourselves for being so lucky to have them DJ our wedding. They set the tone and made sure everything ran smoothly. We love Ateet and his talented team. “
