Sonali and Kanad Mukherjee · Getting married on 03/08/2021
Weddings in the time of Corona
We originally had booked the team for the typical 500 person Indian wedding, but the script was flipped with the pandemic and settled on a 50 person wedding with countless precautions in place (masks, hand sanitizers, prior covid testing, etc). The group was incredibly flexible in adjusting the contract and were gracious enough to offer the deposit back if nothing was to be pursued. Obviously, we moved forward and I'm as thrilled as one can be with the circumstances. I'm a "hey can you play this song" x 10 annoying type of person, but they took my song suggestions prior to the event and played nearly all of the 25 that I requested. They had variety of music (Hip-Hop, Pop, Rock, EDM and of course all types of Indian) and were able to appropriately turn up and down the party as necessary. If music was the sole decision to pick an organization, this is a no brainerSent on 08/20/2020
Outside of the music, they played an integral part of maintaining flow, reminding guests to wear masks when groups got too large and to respect distance when that got too close. There was no ego, no awkward conversations--everything was just easy. I don't know how things will turn out in a pre-vaccine world, but know that if you are planning on having a wedding, safely, and need people that have already done this and will make all the guests get in the mood, this is the organization who (whom?) you should choose.

Unreal night - he threw the best party of our lives!
Oh man. Rahul from Volcanik was truly incredible. I had see him DJ my friend's wedding a few years before, and was blown away by the party he threw. I had never seen an Indian wedding light up the dance floor the way it did when he DJ'd, and when it came time for my wedding I knew I wanted him to DJ. He went above and beyond, provided advice and help far beyond just DJing, provided sparklers to light the dance floor alive, and threw the best party we could have ever asked for! We had countless people come up to us and ask who our DJ was after the wedding and were recommending him left and right. I can truly say he became our friend, and we will never forget the party he threw that night. Music makes your reception - this is a vendor I would never ever settle for less than the best you can get - and Rahul is the best!Sent on 01/09/2020

DJ Rahul was a fantastic vendor. He kept the party going all night, was fun and easy to work with, fast and easy to communicate with, flexible, responsive, accommodating, and professional. Could not have asked for better service or value. Would hire again in a heartbeat.Sent on 02/26/2020

He had everyone on the dance floor!!
Rahul is absolutely amazing! He was so easy to work with and we love his style with music! We used Rahul for our wedding and reception. The baraat was amazing! The groom, his family, and groomsmen were dancing the whole time. During our reception, our guests danced the whole night. We highly recommend Rahul and his team for your wedding or any event!!Sent on 01/31/2020

Best DJ we could have asked for!
We hired Rahul and Volcanik Entertainment for our wedding weekend and they completely exceeded all of our expectations! Over the span of 2 days he DJ'd our Sangeet, Baraat, Wedding Ceremony, Cocktail hour and Reception - each event sounding flawless. We shared ideas of what we wanted the music to sound like at each event and he took those suggestions and completely blew us and our guests away with his ability to read the crowd and hit the exact vibes we were going for. Leading up to the wedding, it was very easy to communicate with Rahul - he was always prompt in responding to our questions, offered plenty of ideas, and was flexible in helping with any changes we needed along the way. Volcanik Entertainment goes above and beyond to make sure you and your guests have an amazing experience; I would (and have) highly recommend them to anyone looking for a DJ!Sent on 01/04/2020

Coming from a DJ, these guys are amazing
I hired DJ Volcanik for my wedding because I loved some remixes he made back when I was 10 years old, which I continue to play till this day. After speaking with him, I gained confidence that he would do an excellent job for my entire wedding weekend. Sure enough, Ashish and Nik did not disappoint one bit. As a DJ myself, I was very particular about the music I wanted played for each event (Pre-sangeet, sangeet, baraat, wedding, reception, NY reception etc.). We needed a lot of bhangra, hindi and hip hop and they played it all beautifully. The team made every effort to play all the songs I requested (which were a lot) and this was very much appreciated. I ran back to the dancefloor multiple times as I kept hearing different favorites being dropped. I even got to DJ for a little while. They mixed in their own music too, which we all loved. The songs they picked post speeches were 100% on point as well. Through and through, Volcanik entertainment did an amazing job and I would recommend them to anyone that seriously cares about music.Sent on 09/17/2019

We requested Rahul at our destination wedding!! Ours was a mixed Indian and Latin wedding and let me tell you...Rahul did the most amazing job mixing these two genres of music!! Not to mention the groom and I love hip hop, 90s freestyle music, and ending our wedding with Bohemian Rhapsody! He mixed us every playlist for all 3 days of events and for the 2 wedding ceremonies! Indian wedding ceremonies need a DJ who is knowledgeable on what music to play during certain parts to keep people’s attention and to keep people engaged! He knew exactly what to play to get the party going. He was professional in all his emails and answered any and all questions in a timely manner. His MC skills were phenomenal, which also got the guests energy up and excited to dance at all events! Would not have dreamed of a better music man for our wedding! Great job!!Sent on 08/28/2019

We worked with the Volcanik team for our engagement party last year and all of our wedding events this year. Ashish, Nikit, Rahul, and Hemant were great to work with! Our guests raved about the baraat and the reception dance floor was packed! Guests specifically told us our DJ was fantastic. Thanks for making all of our events so memorable!Sent on 07/28/2019

Couldn't have picked a better DJ for our wedding!
If I could give these guys 100 stars I would. We hired Hemant and Ashish to DJ the reception for our destination wedding, and we did not give them an easy task: We wanted a 6-hour reception with music the whole time, and we needed a broad enough assortment of music that my husband's (Indian) family, my family (from North Carolina), and our friends (from all over, with strong musical opinions) could all appreciate. These guys spent months preparing for our event based on our playlist and do-not-play lists and managed to somehow merge music from both cultures in a way that flowed nicely and kept everyone on the dance floor until last song! They even spun a few songs on vinyl!!! All of our guests are still talking about how eclectic the music was and how epic our reception was - and I really don't think we could have pulled this off with any other DJ. I'd recommend these guys to anyone, Volcanik are absolute pros.Sent on 01/02/2020

We are so glad we chose Volcanik Entertainment for our wedding. Ashish did a great job with explaining all the services prior to the events and during. Both Ashish and Rahul went out of their way to make our events memorable with the music, lighting, emcee, and song requests. Ashish was always available whenever we had any questions or concerns. Not only did my husband I have such a great time, but our guests did too! There were no hiccups and everything went smooth. Thank you Ashish and Rahul for creating such a great ambiance for our wedding! Can't wait to work with you in the future.Sent on 02/25/2019

We hired Rahul as the DJ for our wedding and we could not be happier! He was super helpful every step of the way, and capped it with an incredible performance at the reception!Sent on 11/28/2018
- He helped with picking entrance songs as well as cutting/editing songs for a Sangeet performance.
- MULTIPLE people came to us afterwards and said this was the best baraat they had ever seen. And @dholisaag kept the party going!
- Most importantly, the music at the reception was amazing! We gave him some idea ahead of time on the type of music we liked and he took it and ran with it. The dance floor was packed from the whole night! The transitions were seamless and the intelligent lighting was the cherry on top.
If I could do it all over again, I WOULD NOT CHANGE A THING. We got so many compliments from our guests on how fabulous DJ Rahul was. Thank you so much!!!

Best DJ ever!!
We hired DJ Rahul for multiple wedding events over the span of three days. He exceeded our expectations!! We had a mix of American and Indian guests and he catered to both!! He was so friendly and personable and made all of us feel at ease when it came to music. He provided us with sample itineraries which made the process for every event so smooth. I cant thank him enough for the amazing weekend we had. Everyone raved about how great the music was all weekend. I highly recommend!!Sent on 10/31/2018
Courtney Harris · Married on 09/29/2018
Amazing! Highly recommended!
We hired Rahul to DJ our wedding reception, and he was the perfect choice! I knew he was going to be amazing because he was awesome at my best friend's wedding a few years ago, but he far exceeded my expectations. People still tell us that it was the most fun wedding and dance party they've ever attended. The lighting and music were perfect, and he did a great job of reading the crowd and keeping the energy up all night long. I don't think we sat down once all night because every song was so great. No one wanted the night to end. All I wanted was for people to dance and to have fun, and that is exactly what happened. Rahul was so easy and fun to work with. He was very responsive and delivered exactly what we wanted. We would definitely hire him again!Sent on 01/10/2019

Want to throw the best party of the year? Want everyone to rave about the music? And have everything run smoothly for your wedding day? Look no further and hire Volcanik. The best of the best!Sent on 09/11/2018
We hired Volcanik for our wedding and we got a DJ + a party planner all in one. To start, Hemant guided me throughout the planning, from helping me create the romantic setting I had envisioned for the reception to making custom monograms for us. The Dhol-Player, the colorful smoke-bombs during Baraat, our live band during cocktail hour (The Young Picassos), the LED dance floor and the sparklers for the Reception were some of the highlights. From MCing to DJing, the day flowed so well. Ashish and Nik made sure the dance floor was packed the entire night with 400 guests. THANK YOU FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT, Hemant, Ashish, Nik, Kauyur! You guys know how to throw down!
Rakesh · Married on 08/18/2018
We had engaged Ashish and his team for total 5 events for our son's wedding in August 2018 at Bridgewater, NJ. Ashish & team stepped-up the experience for our guests through every event, starting from pre-wedding events to Baraat to Wedding to Reception, matching the mood of every event. The dance floor was always full throughout the event/s with 400 guests which is not an easy feat. We received raving compliments from our guest on how great the music was. The Dhol-Player, the colorful smoke-bombs in Baraat, the LED dance floor and the sparklers for the Reception were some of the highlight of their services. Ashish and his team is Well-organized, top and true professionals and super courteous in communication. What we have been able to accomplish, picture-perfect experience, would not have been possible without Ashish and his team. Volcanic Entertainment is the best in the business.Sent on 09/09/2018

I would highly recommend Rahul with DJ Volcanik. Everything from his lightening to DJing was absolutely amazing. We hired him for multiple events and he did such a great job. A little over a month and we are still receiving comments on how amazing our DJ was. My husband and I were thrilled with the results. The dance floor was completely full until 1am! He played a variety of music and mixed it so well that it wasn’t harsh when switching songs. Love, love, loved him! Again, highly recommend!Sent on 09/12/2018

We had the best time at our wedding! Ashish and Rahul know how to throw a great party. The emceeing and music was great. They were so organized and made sure everything ran on time from the baraat to the reception. I have never seen a dance floor packed the entire night like I did at our reception. Thanks for everything!Sent on 08/11/2018

We hired Rahul and the volcanik entertainment team after reading all the good reviews about them. Needless to say we had an awesome experience with them. The guests all raved about the music. Rahul was very professional and made the whole experience a breeze with picking songs and recommendations. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family for future events.Sent on 08/12/2018

They are amazing! So organized, flexible, and great at what they do! Rahul met with us prior to the different events for our wedding to get an idea of what we wanted, and his team definitely delivered! Our sangeet, wedding, and reception were amazing! Neither of us will ever forget our reception! They kept the party going and the dance floor packed way into the night. Highly recommend them!Sent on 09/01/2018

Ashish and his team are no less then AMAZING. The party literally kept going till 1 am and his team made it all an amazing experience for not only my husband and I but also all the guests who attended the event on June 24, 2018 at Dover Downs. I can't thank Ashish and his team enough for the diligent work ethic, professional and of course amazing DJ skills they put forth. I would also recommend using Volcanik entertainment for pyrotechnics and starlight dance floor b/c they have delivered a wonderful setup for these two things as well.Sent on 08/08/2018

Rahul and Volcanik did an amazing job for our South Asian wedding. From the baraat to the mandap to the reception, they were able to gauge our needs, match the mood, and adapt seamlessly. Their open communication and easy going nature was exactly what we needed in the planning phases. They took all our requests into account and even accommodated our last minute request to set up a white dance floor for the reception. We received so many compliments on how great the music was and how all guests of various ages were able to mesh in and enjoy the dance floor. Moreover, the dance floor was always packed as people felt the energy of the evening through the amazing set. We do really appreciate meeting with you before the reception and running through the evening because that really helped make sure the final details were in place. Finally, we really do feel like you bring something special to your brand by how personable the entire operation is. You remembered that we are big fans of Demi Lovato and tried to work her in to the evening. It shows the effort you make to really make the evening enjoyable for each couple and we won’t forget that. Thank you again!Sent on 08/12/2018

Ashish and his team at Volcanik Entertainment were amazing to work with. Ashish took the time to get to know both my new wife and I and our style differences. Coming from different cultural and religious backgrounds, we were used to very different types of wedding ceremonies and receptions, but Ashish was able to take those two and build into a beautiful collaboration! How often do you get to hear a range of music from today’s hip-hop, rock, pop, bollywood, all the way to Hank Williams Jr. :-)Sent on 08/16/2018
We are so thankful for the time he took from the moment we chose him as our entertainment specialist all the way through the delivery of the final product! Our guests were on their feet all night long thanks to the production by Ashish and Volcanik Enyertainment!! Thank you for everything!
Dhara · Married on 01/20/2018
We know Rahul through my family and have always heard good things. Last year, we used Volcanik for our engagement party - all of our guests raved about Rahul's music and talent, so we felt excited to use him again for our wedding and he did not disappoint! When we had to move our wedding from its original location in Puerto Rico to South Florida at the last minute, Volcanik Entertainment (specifically Rahul in our case) went above and beyond to assure us we would still have a great wedding (which we did!). Rahul helped us search other vendors as well in Florida, which was very helpful! We loved working with him and his team. Volcanik was with us all weekend long - from the lighting on our welcome night which was set outdoors, to the music at our respective pithis, Dholi at our garba, pujas at the ceremony, to tearing up the dance floor at our reception, and finally, even adding some jams to our after party - we could not have asked for a better DJ! Thanks Volcanik (and Rahul!!) for keeping the party going all weekend long and being so incredible to work with!Sent on 02/26/2018
