Sagar played at our Mehendi, the Baraat, and during our Hindu Wedding Ceremony. For some of our guests — the groom's side and our mutual friends — these were new traditions, so we needed someone who really knew how to manage a crowd but also understood the nuances of the events ...and Sagar did not disappoint. Not only is he a pleasure to work with, but he plays beautifully, and our guests fed off of his energy from beginning to end. It's safe to say the bar's been set high for our first-timers (and our more seasoned guests, for that matter).

Not only was Sagar one of our favorite vendors, but he also was one of the funnest! My husband’s family is from Texas…where everything is go big or go home! Sagar worked so well with them to the point that he became their favorite person. Not only was he friendly with everyone, but he was very accommodating and intuitive as to what my jaan would find appealing and favorable. Sometimes, I wish I could just pay him to follow me around as my own personal hype man! Thanks for being so awesome Sagar!:)

If you are having a baraat, you obviously need a dholi, and please look no further than Sagar. As a percussionist myself, I was very particular about the dhol player for my baraat. Sagar brings a distinct energy with his dhol skills - your guests won't be able to resist joining in on the dancing. There's nobody I'd rather have with me on dhol. Easily 10/10... Hire him - it'll be the easiest decision in your wedding planning process by far. I'm happy to answer any further questions you may have if need be - just ask Sagar for my contact info.

Danny and I wanted a wedding that represented our adventurous personalities to the fullest. As Indian kids who grew up in an American culture and with a guest list that reflected that, we spent time figuring out how best to represent both sides of our background. This is exactly why Sagar Thakker was a no brainer. Not only is he insanely skilled at his work, but he has an infectious personality that lights up a room. I've personally witnessed him get a packed restaurant up on their feet dancing and singing to a jukebox song and he didn't even have his drum on him. That energy that transformed that room is exactly what he showed up with on our wedding day, but tenfold. As soon as he walked out our guests surrounded him and they were raving about him for weeks! As if that's not enough, Sagar is one of the kindest men you'll have the pleasure of meeting. He was so pleasant through our planning process and showed up in the greatest way for us. Choosing him to be a part of our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! You won't regret making the same choice.

Working with Sagar for our wedding was the easiest and most comfortable experience. He showed up on time and played to the best beats! Sagar brings high energy to the bharat, from beginning to end. That energy was contagious and had the entire crowd dancing and singing. We are so glad we picked him to be apart of our wedding. Thank you Sagar!!
Aarti & Vinay
Thank you so much for contributing on making our wedding so special and teaching us how to play the dhol! It wouldn't have been the same without you. Thank you for showing up on time to all the events, and working in such sync with the rest of our fabulous vendors. Our guests and Hilton staff had nothing but high praises for how good you were. You were more than just the best dholi in the world for our wedding. You became a great friend and little brother.
Sagar spent 4 months before our big weekend teaching us how to play basic dhol sequences cause it was our dream to play dhol at our own wedding. He was so nice, patient and extremely professional during the entire process. It is important to work with trustworthy vendors during your special weekend, and Sagar is the best they come.
Kartikay & Jasleen
Our entire family LOVED Sagar. He is an amazing drummer and artist with an incredible sense of style. We respected the professionalism and punctuality at every event, held in Michigan. He plays the dhol with an intensity and passion that engages the crowd to get up and dance. He can, in fact, play to every beat that the DJ throws at him.
Suraj & Priya
Sagar played the dhol for our reception and we couldn't have asked for anyone better! He is an extremely talented dholi that is able to mix with any type of music and also has the type of vibrant personality you want at your event. Sagar was able to effortlessly vibe with friends our age and entertain the older guests as well - he is great at reading and connecting with the crowd! Sagar goes above and beyond to make sure everyone at the event is having the best time and we're glad he was able to play at our reception!
Dhruv & Shivani
Shivani and I were so grateful to have Sagar (aka DholiSaag) to make our special day even louder and brighter! Thanks to him families on both sides had a great time dancing and enjoying the wedding festivities! Sagar is the best when it comes to playing the Dhol and getting the crowd energy! We would HIGHLY recommend him for all events! Thank you very much once again!!
Shilpa & Sudip
Sagar is not only an extremely talented dhol player but is also an all-around great person and professional. He really livened up our wedding with his incredible beats and was also one of the vendors we had to worry the least about - because he's so dependable. We could not recommend Sagar more for your wedding festivities/reception & afterparty! He's the best!!
