  • DJ Ravi Jackson was a hit for our wedding! After looking at DJ after DJ, we finally found someone who was a perfect fit. Neerav was friendly and flexible, easy to get a hold of and talk to, and made the process really easy. He chatted with us to understand where we were coming from (my wife is indian and I'm western [aka white guy] so we wanted a mix of music from both parts of the world). He was organized with spreadsheets which made it so simple to plan and organize everything with him. We even made some last minute changes just a few minutes before we walked into the reception and he was all over it, no problems. The ceremony sounded great with perfect music cues, and our reception was a blast. He did a great job of mixing between top 40 and bhangra, bollywood etc to keep everyone in it. We also got lighting, which looked great, and a music cart for my baraat. He explained the significance of the baraat to my family and gave them a few sample dance moves, and kept them in it the who... Read more

  • We had a fantastic experience working with DJ Ravi Jackson. He was originally recommended to us by a friend and we were lucky enough to experience his services a few months prior to our wedding (at a friend's wedding). Based off that recommendation and the competitive pricing, we decided to go with DJ Ravi. It was a great experience working with him - not only was Ravi professional, responsive, and thorough, he also gave us a bunch of recommendations that made our wedding planning much easier (EG recommended photographers to us, advised on the schedule, helped us find a photo booth company, etc). Multi-cultural event? Not a problem! We had a Chinese Tea Ceremony, Indian Sangeet/Baraat, etc. and everything went according to plan over the two days of events (even though some aunties were changing up the performance schedules on him up to the last minute). All the events went like clockwork. In fact, our priest gave him a shoutout when he visited us after the wedding - the priest said th... Read more

  • DJ Ravi Jackson was amazing! He did the music for our Baraat (we also hired a dhol player through him), wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and he truly set the mood with perfection for every single part. The baraat was super high energy, the ceremony felt momentous (the guests all listened and paid attention during the ~1hr ceremony), and the reception was so high energy (I assume the cocktail hour went well, as I was not there). So many of our guests commented on how much they loved his MC and DJ-ing and there were so many people on the dance floor all night, which is a true testament to his skill as a DJ. He played a perfect mix of the Indian and western songs and he helped us put together a great list of chosen songs for different aspects of our wedding. He executed our request flawlessly. It was important to use that we have a south Asian DJ, but were looking for someone who matched with our vibe (we are not over the top). He was high energy, incorporated both north and... Read more

  • We couldn't have picked a better DJ for our Indian fusion wedding! We had a 300-person wedding reception with a mix of both Indian and American guests. We asked Ravi to play both Indian and American songs so that all guests would feel included and want to dance. And they all danced! Many guests told us that some people who never dance at weddings actually did at ours. There was so much great energy in the room the whole night because Ravi could read the crowd and knew which songs to play. Ravi was also wonderful to work with before the wedding. He was always responsive to emails and also receptive to a do not play/must play list. My husband and I also did a surprise Bollywood dance to three tracks, and Ravi cut the tracks for us before the wedding so that we could practice. Overall, our reception was so much fun, and we owe a lot of that to Ravi! We can't thank him enough.

  • My husband and I hired DJ Ravi Jackson and his team for our fusion Hindu/American wedding in Philadelphia this summer. From the moment we began communicating with him months in advance, we were incredibly impressed with DJ Ravi's professionalism and flexibility. Because were were planning this Philly-based wedding from Washington, DC, we relied on e-mail and phone communication with DJ Ravi; he was exceedingly available at all hours of the day to speak and e-mail with us. As a bride who planned a 200+ person wedding on my own (ie. no wedding coordinator), DJ Ravi was by far the most responsive and polished vendor I worked with during the wedding planning process. On the day of the wedding, he and his team seamlessly incorporated energy and fun to the baraat, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We also hired a dhol (Indian drummer) player through DJ Ravi, and it is safe to say that he brought his "A" game to the wedding! We had several song suggestions, "must haves," and "not ha...

  • We used DJ Ravi Jackson for our wedding in May 2017 at the Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge NJ. We had a great experience working with him leading up to the wedding, as well as on the wedding day itself. Above all else, he has two major qualities which make him an ideal DJ for any event you are planning. First, simply put, he is good at his job. You can rest easy knowing that anything you ask of him will be done well, and that you will enjoy the music and atmosphere at your event. Second, he has a very patient, calm, friendly demeanor. This makes him really easy to work with in the time leading up to your event. We were behind giving him information and multimedia files, and he was never perturbed, handling everything as it came to him. Additionally, he tolerated all of our crazy song requests throughout the night and fit them into his song sequences seamlessly. No matter what happened, he was always pleasant. You will not be disappointed if you go with DJ Ravi Jackson.

  • We used DJ Ravi Jackson for our wedding last month (large Indian wedding in the Philadelphia suburbs). He was amazing! First, during the planning process, Ravi was incredibly down to earth, accessible/responsive, and easy to work with. His prices were comparable to others we considered, maybe slightly less. But the main reason we decided to go with him were that he was so down to earth, not pushy about anything, and had experience DJing weddings at our venue. He always replied promptly to emails and texts, and made himself available for phone calls and live meetings, both before and after we signed the contract with him. This was key because the DJ has a very central role in coordinating the flow of the reception and even the ceremony (with different music to be played at different parts of the Hindu ceremony), so we had lots of questions for him. We had 12 different sections of the ceremony, and my parents gave him instructions on which music should be played when, and at what volume.... Read more

  • We hired DJ Ravi Jackson to handle our entire wedding celebration from the Garba, Baraat, Wedding and finally the main event the Reception!!!. Our main goal for the reception was that our guests had great food, great drinks and also a BUMPING dance floor. Everything hit the mark, especially with DJ Ravi Jackson dropping awesome music all night ensuring our dance floor was bumping all night long! He also made the night really interesting with an impromptu dance off! We highly recommend DJ Ravi Jackson for your DJ needs!!! We were especially impressed with his close attention to detail to ensure we had an amazing night! Thanks DJ Ravi Jackson. Sincerely, Gautam & Megha

  • Ravi did an excellent job with our wedding! Services he provided were: DJ, dholi for baraat, ceremony music, and MC. Throughout the planning process he was such a pleasure to work with and was incredibly responsive when we asked to meet with him. He had great suggestions as to how to keep the night running smoothly. He did a wonderful job facilitating the ceremony, getting the crowd excited and keeping people dancing. The music was fantastic - I barely left the dance floor the entire night!

    Thanks Alanna! You and your guests made my job easy! You brought the energy all night! I truly appreciate the opportunity! I hope to see you and Bharat out in Philly soon!

  • We can't give a more positive rating for DJ Ravi. First off, his services speak for themselves: I had multiple people come to me after the wedding and say, "This DJ is amazing! Where can get his contact info?" To back up a bit, we asked Ravi for a number of his services: a baraat with a mobile music cart, a complex ceremony that involved playing 18 separate cultural songs at various points in our South Indian ceremony. In addition, we asked him to coordinate between the audio for the mics and the music itself. The mic audio was problematic at points, and they cut in and out frequently. However, the music for the ceremony itself and the music that was cued was done with extreme precision. In the few weeks prior, Ravi took the time to carefully chat with us on several occasions to work through the details. As you'll see from his Soundcloud page, Ravi is masterful at lots of different styles of music: for our ceremony we asked him to play many different South Indian and North Indian... Read more

  • Ravi is an average DJ at best. Not that anything was extremely wrong at our event, but things could truly have been way better. I provided a detailed list of songs that had to be played at each entrance and at each ritual. Ravi had a somewhat difficult time following that list. There were some extremely weird mixing sounds added between change of sountracks, that were not pleasant at all. Lastly, he did not play all the upbeat songs i had put in the list of songs for when the dance floor opened. He did follow some songs, but my guess is he isn’t too familiar with Bollywood numbers and didn’t know which ones were more appropriate in the setting. Overall an average experience for way too muc money. The wedding DJ was 2/3rd the price and 100 times better. Verdict: Look elsewhere you will find someone better for a more reasonable price.

    Hi Mahvish, Thanks for your honest feedback. I'm sorry you felt things didn't go as well as you hoped. I recall you saying things went well at the end of the night, so I wasn't aware you thought it was just an average experience. We're always striving to get better and we'll definitely use your input to look at ways we can improve, whether getting more in tune with the music, better transitions, etc. Regards, Ravi

  • DJ Ravi Jackson was completely professional. He sent us a very helpful spreadsheet to organize our song choices/preferences. Above all, he was incredibly genuine and down to earth and easy to work with. Not to mention, our guests left the reception hall early and he stayed the entire time of the contract and honored his commitment. I truly appreciate that. Ravi was our DJ and Emcee and I think it may be worth it to pay for a separate Emcee. He didn't do a whole lot to get our crowd going/involved. I will say that we had a tough crowd and no alcohol (Malayalee community), so it wouldn't have been easy.

  • Used DJ Ravi Jackson for our Indian wedding. We had a North-South wedding and Neerav did an amazing job keeping everyone on the dance floor by playing a variety of music. He did a great job at reading the crowd and playing music that kept the dance floor full all night. We also used one of his dholi's who later transitioned into our reception MC. The dhol player was fantastic and did an even better job as an MC! Also, he is very well connected in the industry and our event ran even smoother because he had solid relationships with most of our vendors. Only issue--this was the first event he had done at the Sheraton VF and the sound in the back of the room was not ideal. I think we may have needed two more speakers in the back of the room because some guests were not able to hear the speeches. Overall we were incredibly happy with his work and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a talented DJ for any event!
