Ateet is a recognized veteran DJ since 1996. He was born and raised in the DC Metro Area and has built a strong following of customers all over the East Coast from New York to Florida that hire him for his ability to make weddings and corporate events more than an entertaining night, but an event that leaves you with memories to cherish for years.
Ateet specializes in international and mixed weddings. He works with diverse people of South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi), Persian, Arabic and Latin background to bring the sounds of Bhangra, Bollywood, Latin and Reggae to your unique event.
He has over 1,000 weddings to his credit during his past 12 years of experience and has learned that each wedding event is as exceptional and special as the couple is. That’s why he’ll give the bride and groom a personal consultation that touches on every aspect from the rehearsal, cocktail hour, Sangeeta, wedding, and reception to turn their vision into a beautiful memory.
He will create a customized playlist as well as a do-not playlist for the evening that fits with the tastes and ambience the couple wants. He will work with his extensive network of fantastic singers, Bollywood/Bhangra/Belly dancers and Dhal players to kick off your event into an unforgettable night of fun and excitement.
Ateet’s exceptional professionalism and passion for music shines through at every single one of his events. He’s fully licensed and insured. He is a member of the American Disc Jockey Association which shows his commitment to providing quality entertainment and services.
He has sold over 1,200 copies of his CD Badd Boy Bhangra. It is a huge crowd pleaser that is a compilation of the best Bhangra remixes he created himself. Another CD is in his future!
His passion for music extends to dance. He personally won several national Bhangra dance competitions with the most notable being the Bhangra Blowout in Washington DC and Bhangra Fusion in Michigan. If you want to learn a few Bhangra, Salsa, Merengue or Bachata moves, Ateet is more than happy to show you some instructional dance steps that will compliment your selection of music.
This is your event and this experienced professional DJ can make it one to be remembered and stand out above the rest!
Whatever your special day, Ateet looks forward to meeting and entertaining you!
DJ Ateet delivered!
He says he is the best and it is true. The whole process was smooth and painless. He helped to make selecting music and coordinating the event a breeze. We gave him a certain number of songs and creative license to pick the rest. He integrated our choices seamlessly. The music flowed together quite well and if for some reason a song was not a hit, it was changed without being noticeable. Our wedding was heavily dance-focused and the dancing happened for 3 hours straight! There was never a moment where the tumbleweeds blew across the dance floor.
He is well worth it!
THANK YOU for your above and beyond performances at our wedding in December. You and your team really made it a wonderful night for us. Your music selections matched the mood of the Sangeet, cocktail reception, and our guests. We wanted everyone to dance and have a great time. Did we ever! Everyone had a great time from the youngest to the oldest. Everyone commented about how many people actually got up to dance. I attribute that to both the music and the outgoing/carefree family members! Your music certainly had a lot to do with the success of the party. Your ability to work wonders on the crowd is amazing. You are truly gifted in knowing people and in creating a perfect atmosphere. Also importantly, you have a wonderful sense of professionalism. We truly cherish the great work from you and your entire team in making our wedding so special and memorable.
– Thank you once again, Sanjay & Divya
Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding amazing! From the announcements to the dancing throughout the night in the reception, we all had a great time and loved the music selections. Your interaction with the crowd really helped get everyone involved. Thanks so much for teaching some of my cousins some new Bhangra dance moves. And a special thanks for making a special Indian remix to “Pour Some Sugar on Me”. It really made our entrance into the reception something memorable to us. Thanks for the great entertainment you provided!

Thanks so much for making my party extraordinary! All my friends and family truly enjoyed the night. Our feet hurt so much from all the dancing and that is when we knew we hired the best to provide entertainment for us. Glad you were available and can’t wait to utilize your services in the future.
