WE ARE AWESOME AT THIS

Initially under KGS and now under his son Puran, companies like Apple, Netgear, Etihad Airways, Cirque Du Soleil and countless private clients have trusted us for over thirty years to produce everything from events with thousands of attendees to intimate home parties for close friends and family. Not only do we produce, organize, and manage – we ourselves perform Tabla, Dhol, DJ, Vocals, Sitar, Drumset and more. I am proud to say unlike most event companies we take pride in doing what we love OURSELVES – both performing with the entire KGS team for our clients as well as entertainment event preparation and coordination.

OUR SUPPORT IS THE BEST

I abide by two golden rules in order to create successful events – extensive preparation and open communication. I do this by preparing a proposal with timelines, detailed service descriptions with video examples of the service(s) to be provided, and package as well as a la carte service pricing. Once both you as a client and we understand what the expectations, budget constraints, and desired outcomes are for an event I keep clients updated about any concerns or issues. We have never had an unsatisfied customer however I promise should any unforeseen circumstance occur to do my utmost to properly rectify the situation.

We LOVE What We Do

My dad, Mr. Kukoo G. Singh began playing Tabla at the age of 8 under the guidance of his father, my Dada-Ji the late Giani Karam Singh Rasia. KGS was already performing on television by his early teens and went on to perform Tabla throughout Asia in the Filipino Rock Production of “Mahaal” and later with music legends like Surinder Kaur, Swami Hari Das Giri, Hari Om Sharan, Kuh Ledesma, and giants in genres like Flamenco, Jazz, and Rock. I began learning Tabla and Drumset at a similar young age both at home and academically at San Francisco’s School of the Arts, SF Conservatory of Music, as well as UC Santa Cruz. We continue to grow individually as musicians and as a group with a team of highly trained Western and Indian musicians that we regularly practice and perform with.

Our Work

Here are a few photos from our most popular types of events: Baraats featuring our Brass Band, Wedding Ceremonies and Cocktail Hours featuring live Sitar, Sarod, and Tabla and of course DJ, Dhol, our Live Band with Singers, and Dancers for Parties such as Sangeets, Anniversaries or Corporate Events.

The Dobara Package

Many couple's opt for two-in-one type of performance especially for events that might immediately follow one another. For example we often feature the Barat Band as the Groom's Wedding party makes their entrance to the wedding venue immediately followed by Live, Sitar, and Tabla for a Wedding Ceremony. Similarly we are often requested to feature light Classical music during a Reception Cocktail Hour then followed by the live Hindi and Punjabi Sangeet Band or DJ with Dhol player in the main hall.

Barat Band + Dholi

The Barat Band welcoming in the Groom to make an impressive showing to the Bride and her family is one of the most iconic moments of a South Asian Wedding. We offer formations from a single Dhol player all the way up to a 7 piece Band with 2 Dhol players and live Bhangra Dancers.

Light Sitar or Sarod with Tabla

Listening to the melodies of the Sitar or Sarod with accompanying Tabla is a must-have for infusing enchantment and wonder into your reception, cocktail hour, or wedding ceremony. All of our musicians have training from the Ali Akbar Khan College of Indian Classical Music and we provide all of our own audio equipment. A platform or riser is recommended both to appear more visually appealing to guests and out of respect and comfort for the musicians. If outdoors, an awning or umbrella is also necessary to prevent the instruments from going out of tune and requiring constant tuning.

R

Sangeet Band

Ready to dance and sing a long to a live band performing classics like Ae Meri Zohra Jabeen, Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast, Mehndi Laga Ke Rakhna, Bari Barsi, Munda Apne Viah De Vich, and many more?. Singers Raja, Nidhi, and Kukoo G. Singh himself are fully backed by a cast of Dhol, Drumset, Saxophone, Bass, Guitar, Tabla, and more to keep your hands up, shoulders popping, and hips swaying throughout the night!

R

Desi and American DJ

We all know a DJ is critical to both the enjoyment and success of an event. I DJ myself as well as showcase other DJ's if I am performing live with the band. We also perform MC'ing services and provide a custom consultation to ensure we craft the perfectly curated playlist for your event. We are capable of everything from a small home-party set up to a large reception hall featuring uplighting, screens, custom globos and more.

R

Bollywood and Bhangra Dancers

Bhangra Dancers add an impressive visual aspect to a Barat, dancing with and energizing the Baraatis as well as alerting friend and foe alike that the Groom has now arrived! Both Bollywood and Bhangra Dancers compliment a Sangeet or other upbeat event and will provide an impressive visual performance as well as inspire the crowd to get out of their seats and dance!

R

Dholi with DJ

Featuring a live Dhol player along with the DJ is one of the easiest ways to elevate an otherwise standard event and give the guests something to watch and dance their hearts out to.

R

Ceremony Audio Support

Not only do we provide live music for your wedding ceremony - we also include wireless and or corded mics for your Pandit Ji or other officiant. This has several benefits. The first is of course that your guests will hear what is taking place rather than looking at their watches and wondering when they can eat and second your videographer will be able to plug into our mixer and later sync all of the audio from your ceremony to their film. WINNING.

R

Your Custom Option

Do you have something unique in mind? If it's possible we will make it happen! We have received requests to perform certain songs such as Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Tum Jo Aaye, Tum Hi Ho for a couple's first dance or to feature a certain Vidhai song with live vocals, Tabla, and Harmonium. Let us know and we will let you know what we can customize for you.

What our clients say

“Hands down one of the best decisions we made was to have them perform and enhance the ambiance at our wedding events. The KGS team is nothing short of phenomenal.. They are great at what they do and very professional as well. Our families and guests were completely blown away by their talents. Puran and his team played along with dhol players during the baraat (trumpet, trombone, flute, clarinet are the ones my husband can remember) it was different than just the typical dhol players for the baraat and that’s exactly what we wanted. For the wedding we had tabla and sarod playing as we wanted a more traditional musical experience for our guests than just Bollywood songs during the ceremony. My personal absolute favorite was the setup they had for our cocktail hour.. A full band playing some of our most favorite songs! I can’t say enough positive things about this team and they FARRRRR exceeded my expectations! If you hire them I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. Thank you KGS for all your hard work we could not have been happier, thank you for making our events exactly what we wanted them to be!”

“When you have a special occasion to celebrate, there is nothing like a live music to make it special. We have hired KGS on multiple occasions and recently hired them for my son’s engagement party. They can do DJ, and they can do live music. And we have been very satisfied with their service. I love the way that they come dressed in traditional bright colored clothing and outfits. It really creates a great atmosphere. You can also hire them for a performance anywhere. We have had them come to events in the Southern California area before as well.”

Pearls P. | Client - Diamond Bar, CA

“Mr. Singh performed live Indian Classical Sarod and Tabla for our wedding cocktail hour. The performance was amazing and was the exactly the the touch of elegance we were looking for. Highly recommended!”
