Jainsounds is an absolute pleasure to work with! It is so great to work with such amazing professionals. Jina Brass Band was a complete hit at the NYC Plaza Hotel Wedding we worked together. If you’re looking to shut down the streets of NYC for your baraat, look no further!
It’s one thing to be a talented musician, another entirely to play while leading crowds of hundreds, and keeping the music, momentum and energy level high the entire time. Sunny Jain and his uber talented team achieve all of this effortlessly and reliably, the latter being critical given that often artistry and execution do not always go hand in hand. Not the case with Jainsounds though, the administrative process is easy, the arrival times always punctual and as planned, and the music superb. Of particular note is that Sunny and his team are not only flexible, ready to go with the flow especially when it changes, but also professional enough to see in the moment when something has taken an unplanned turn and watch to know how to react to that change, in the moment, perfectly. As planners, we work with them a lot and under different circumstances, so our comfort with and confidence in them has built over many years of working together.
We were already fans of Red Baraat, and couldn’t have been happier with the energy and excitement that Jainsounds brought to our wedding in July 2016. We had Jina Brass Band to help us take over the Atlantic City Boardwalk with an epic Baraat, Bollywood Jazz Ensemble to get everyone in the mood to party at the cocktail hour, and Sunny Jain on the dhol to kick off the reception with a bang. The musicians were all super talented, the team was very professional and easy to work with, and the money was very well spent. Thank you!
My husband and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect experience. This wonderful, very talented band (Jina Brass Band) accommodated our desire to surprise our wedding guests, so they hid in our garage, then suddenly brought this beautiful energy into our house straight into the backyard, where everyone danced their hearts out. Our wedding guests are still talking about it! Thank you!
When I first heard about Red Baraat performing at Lincoln Center, I knew I would remember their name and seek them out for my wedding. A few years later, I did exactly that. Sunny Jain and Jainsounds are professional, genuine and ultra talented. We hired the 4 piece Jina Brass Band for the wedding baraat and Sunny Jain himself on the dhol for part of our reception. We are so lucky they were available for our dates. The planning experience was seamless and the price was reasonable. More importantly, the music was incredible! Sunny Jain and Jainsounds made our wedding party feel like it was in India. They amplified the joy and excitement of our wedding and got everyone dancing, family and friends, young and old!
Jainsounds was a pleasure to work with throughout our wedding planning process. Not only were they punctual, but they were very patient when we were running late to begin the festivities. The Jina Brass Band played all the right music to kick start the wedding day with fun-filled, positive energy. All the guests, from children to adults, Indian and non-Indian, were dancing their way through the entire baraat procession with huge smiles. The baraat pictures are full of authenticity with the live instruments and the band members who dress the part. Anyone looking for a baraat with high energy, authentic live music, and responsible professionals, must use Jainsounds! Thank you for making our baraat unforgettable and for your outstanding services throughout!
Thank you Sunny & the entire team of Jainsounds for making all of my events a success. Every-time that I worked with you, had it be a jazz band performance or a high-energy dance performance, you guys without a fail had the crowd entertained always. I look forward to working with you guys at my future events
Sunny was part of our baraat procession as it took off down the cobblestones of South Street Seaport (NYC). He was extremely professional with his punctuality and demeanor (he dressed the part brilliantly!). He was able to involve our non-desi friends and played through the entire baraat at the right pace providing the right impetus that led on to the success of the rest of the evening. The entire baraat was so novel and exciting that there was a healthy crowd of tourists that gathered around clicking away with Sunny himself being one the higher snapped part of the procession. We are delighted to recommend Sunny to anyone who is looking at providing an authentic and fun-filled baraat/wedding
Sunny was fantastic to work with. He helped us well in advance of our wedding patiently discussing logistics, sound equipment, song selection and how to set-up and think about our cocktail hour, baraat, and ceremony. Most importantly Sunny provided an amazing sitar/tabla duo for our cocktail hour and ceremony that our guests are still raving about a year after the event. The duo even learned a sitar version of “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles for the Bride’s entrance. We loved it!
Wedding planning is inherently stressful, but Sunny was courteous and professional throughout the booking process; he was very responsive to our e-mails and phone calls, was willing to lend guidance even though we didn’t have a huge amount of venue space, and even offered money-saving advice, which is exceedingly rare among service providers. I can’t tell you how many guests told us Red Baraat was the best live Indian wedding entertainment they had ever seen, and months after the event, family and friends were still raving: “Hey, remember that awesome band you had at your reception?” Sunny Jain and his Red Baraat band mates were extremely energetic, enthusiastic, and delivered a performance that even had aunties and uncles up on their feet and on the dance floor. Sunny personally checked in with us throughout the evening, and was mindful of volume and acoustics for the comfort of the guests as they dined and danced. We are very grateful to Sunny and his team for making our evening successful, and would strongly recommend Red Baraat to anyone looking to make their event unforgettable.
Sunny Jain was an absolute pleasure to deal with during the wedding preparation process. He was always available to meet and discuss our musical vision and was very prompt and responsive to all of our questions. The set his Red Baraat band played literally blew the roof off the venue. Pretty much every guest of every age from both sides of the wedding were up dancing and having a great time for the entire performance and we had universally positive feedback from everyone we spoke with afterwards. On top of that, Sunny did a fantastic job playing the baraat drum to end our actual wedding ceremony and playing indo-jazz during the cocktail hour. We highly recommend him.
The Jina Brass Band was absolutely amazing! The wedding party enjoyed the music so much that they didn’t want to stop dancing. We have not heard any band in America that can play Indian music so well for a wedding. We would recommend them to everyone we know. And most importantly, they are so easy to work with. Thank you for making our wedding so special.
Having Red Baraat perform at our wedding was an incredible experience. Our wedding weekend infused Indian/Punjabi, Louisiana Creole, and African American cultures, and they were the PERFECT band for our reception. They played a wide variety of music, and our guests couldn’t stop dancing. Their energy is electric! Everyone loved their performance, especially us.
There are no words to describe the party that erupts when Sunny and Red Baraat play. They performed at our wedding reception and blew away the crowd. Not only are the musicians talented and the music infectious, but EVERYONE is drawn to the dance floor. Within seconds of the dhol beating, everyone, old and young, of every culture was dancing. We are not exaggerating when we say that Red Baraat made our day special, without them it would have been just like any other wedding.
Sunny, thank you so much! We loved dancing to all the tunes played by Red Baraat. Thank you for letting us pick out the songs ahead of time. A good baraat is key for a good wedding party, and you and your band were extremely well put-together, talented, creative, on time, responsive and not to mention – Awesome! Thank you so kindly for helping us add such a traditional and authentic touch to our wedding.
We used Sunny for multiple facets of our wedding. He led an amazing baraat marching band to start, ran music for our wedding ceremony and also played a unique Indian jazz quartet, with a splash of dhol at our reception! Simply amazing! Versatile, creative and a brilliant musician are adjectives I would use. Sunny is a gentleman and a total professional; we would highly recommend and use his services anytime!
The music provided was just excellent. The band arrived much ahead of time and all the guests praised their quality of music. I will strongly recommend them to families whose children are getting married. You will not be disappointed.
We just wanted to take the time out to say thank you for your hard work in making our wedding go exactly how we envisioned it. We received many compliments on the band’s performance. Everyone said the music was bumping!! hahaha. You are a pleasure to work with and keep doing such a great job. I will def recommend you to others!!
Jainsounds made our baraat truly memorable. All the guests were very impressed. We are so glad we did not do the DJ in the back of the truck or the conventional dhol player.
Red Baraat led by talented band leader Sunny Jain absolutely rocked our wedding baraat. They brought heart + soul + amazing music to our special day. Our families danced & celebrated to their energetic + traditional songs. It was so unique + memorable that my 2 sisters also used them for their weddings. Thank you!
