We are very happy with Ajay's professionalism. We held our reception at Noor's Pasadena and he rocked the party with his collection. If you are reading this review to find the good DJ don't look further !! Trust me I've asked the impossible and he has delivered and met the challenges. We asked him for the most traditional south indian music called the "nadaswaram" and he had it!! & he had a good collection of mainstream/ bollywood music, which was perfect for our fusion wedding =D. I would recommend Ajay for all your events he has a very positive vibration that can kick start a party!

This is a company that lives up to its name – we had our three day wedding celebration in Long Beach, CA. And the Special Occasions team walked the whole journey with us, offering a comforting hand when it was overwhelming, and helping us with valuable insight when we had no idea we needed it.
With prompt and professional responses to emails and investing the time to explain their different services and options, we were certain of our decision to go with them from the onset. Throughout the planning process, we had access to their website that’s easy to use and allowed us to list those songs we wanted for the evening.
The reception is where their mastery was evident –the dance floor was always full, with friends and family wishing it didn’t have to stop. Ajay was funny, upbeat, energetic and never cheesy or inappropriate. He kept everything moving along at a perfect pace, and accommodated requests from our guests masterfully. The addition of Vinay playing the dhol during the reception elevated the whole evening and brought that special touch everyone looks for. Not to mention the ambiance and warmth the lighting, white dance floor and gobo brought to the whole room and made the event feel more intimate than the 400 person count would encourage.
Our wedding was no exception – from the baraat and dhol inspiring family and friends to dance all the way to the ceremony, the caliber of execution and professionalism was evident. The praise from our family and friends reinforced what we already knew – that we had made the right decision in going with Special Occasions and trusting our special weekend to their expertise.
We can’t say enough about how happy we are with the Special Occasions family and how much you all cared about every detail for our special weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Special Occasions were the last vendors we signed. And boy, were they a brilliant find!!

We found them online and were only able to communicate with them via email as we were based out of India at the time. Ajay was so helpful and kind enough to arrange a few Skype sessions with us so that we were able to discuss things with him and get to know each other. Since my husband is American and I am Indian by heritage, it was important that our DJ/MC was able to bridge the gap between cultures and bring everyone together.

Ajay and Chirag DJ'ed at our wedding reception. They were both fantastic!! The music was amazing throughout; it was everything we had asked for. Our brief was fully understood and executed perfectly. Ajay got everybody on the dance floor, there was never a dull moment all night! He was also a great MC, funny and entertaining, livening up the atmosphere from the very start to the end. Together, both Ajay and Chirag brought two different cultures together with a night of complete entertainment and fabulous music. We had so many guests tell us afterwards that it was the best wedding they had ever been to and some tell us that they had never danced so much in their entire lives! My husband and I also hardly left the dance floor as Ajay and Chirag continued to blow us away with one amazing song after the other. They are fully responsible for making our wedding reception an unforgettable evening for everyone and for keeping the party going non-stop. (Ajay also conducted a little 'how to Bollywood dance' session that almost everyone participated in and enjoyed thoroughly, myself included!!)

I could go on and on about how great they were but I will be here for hours. These guys were amazing at every stage; from being so helpful and accommodating at the planning stages to the actual amazing wedding reception party. I cannot recommend them enough! Look no further, they are brilliant and will not disappoint!!

BY FAR the best choice I made for my wedding. Bhavin was a killer MC and the dj BLEW MY MIND. We had no less than 70 people come up to us during and after the wedding and tell us it was the absolute best music they have ever experienced at a wedding. So many people asked for the playlist - I wish I could take credit for it!! Nobody was in their seat once the dancing started (and people started dancing before dinner was served - it was that good!). It was exactly what I wanted for my wedding. Highly, highly recommended.

My parents and I worked with Parag (who was the DJ for our event) and Ajay (our initial contact). Both were incredibly professional, thoughtful and accommodating. They created tracks for my family's dance performances before the event and truly listened to our song requests and vision for the event. The lighting was spectacular and all in all, a very classy event. We had an overall older crowd, but we wanted to keep an energetic, relaxed atmosphere. They helped us create just that without yelling at the crowd! We strongly recommend them!

Chirag and Bhavin were awesome! The lighting was amazing and they really kept the momentum and flow the entire night! So many of my guests have commented on how great these two were! They were extremely professional but fun, funny but not cheesy, and extremely nice! They even took the time to set all the equipment just right. Some of my engaged friends either asked them or have asked me for the information as they plan their own weddings. These guys are awesome and know exactly how to keep a party going!
