I feel lucky to have his level of talent here in Phoenix!” – Amy V., Director of Marketing .: Saks Fifth Avenue, Phoenix
"I've found that regardless of industry, generally the more creative people are, the more challenging they can be to work with. Not so here. Rani is immensely creative, technically talented, possesses impeccable music taste and most importantly, acts with humility and grace. If you want to get the job done, and done right, start here." – Mark P., Vice President of Marketing .: Oregon Museum of Science & Industry

"Working with Rani for the past few years on our Glenmorangie Highland Games & Gathering in Phoenix has helped add a "cool" factor to our pop up Lounge. His professionalism is impeccable and his energy and positive attitude helps light up the crowd. Would call upon his talents, again and again." – Sheila H., West Region Marketing Director .: Moet Hennessy USA
"When I was living in LA and involved in booking DJs for bebe on Rodeo Drive, I reached out to Rani for every big event. His professionalism, passion and music selection proved to be a hit with our clients, employees and even people who wondered in from outside to hear the music. His addition of live saxophone and the collaborative synergy that followed, also changed the vibe and ambiance of our store leading to an increase in sales. Clients didn't want to leave! Notable events he played include; the Kardashian's Meet and Greet, Rami Kashou's Bridal Boutique Launch and Fashion's Night Out. His ability to perform and adapt to any setting, read the crowd by playing unique remixes of familiar music, as well as introduce new music, played a pivotal role in booking him for our store and referring him. Rani is a true pleasure to work. His integrity, dedication and endearing qualities have allowed for us to also become friends over the years." – Chanel M., District Manager Orange County/San Diego .: bebe Stores Inc.
"As an event planner, I so appreciate those individuals who I can bring an idea to and they produce exactly what I need. I have turned to Rani to provide DJ services and book musicians for Phoenix New Times events for the past six years. Give him a theme or vibe you are looking to achieve, and he will deliver. Add on his passion for what he does and he makes working with him a true joy." – Jessica H., Marketing Director .: Phoenix New Times
"As Co-Chair of The Special Event, I had a huge challenge ahead of me - producing an event that would be attended by 2,000 other special event professionals. This was not amateur hour. Everyone on my committee said without a doubt, Rani was the man for the job when it came to the entertainment piece. The audience for this event had already seen most of the entertainment that was trending at that time, so we really had to wow them with unique and innovative performers and music. Rani was definitely a creative force and a self-starter. I put a lot of trust in him to select a diverse and engaging variety of entertainment for our event and he definitely delivered. I hope to have an opportunity to partner with Rani again soon!" – Kerrell M., GEO (Great Event Organizer) .: the next great event, LLC
"We have had the pleasure of working with Rani for the past three years for the Ripe Culinary Awards. He has been an integral part of our event and is constantly thinking of ways to make improvements to enhance the experience for our patrons. Rani also has a knack for avoiding problems before they occur. He is a consummate professional and couldn’t be easier to deal with." – Ryan O., Board Member/Event Chairman .: Men’s Arts Council of Phoenix Art Museum
"As a Marketing Director for several major event productions, I have relied on Rani in many capacities and to my relief he has always provided the same intense level of dedication. After meeting & hearing Rani in Tulum Mexico for a festival, I invited him to perform in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic for another festival. His passion, attention to detail and unwavering loyalty to the type of environment he provides guarantees an extraordinary experience every time. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary that will stand out from other experiences, Rani can provide this for you." – Bruce B., Marketing & Business Development .: BMW USA (Previously Marketing Director of Winter Music Conference, Miami)
"Talk about sophistication when creating an environment! Yes, that is the added value you get to have on your special celebration, or your special day… a creative like Rani G. His art resides in creating the harmonies and beats that best fit your idea of elegance and style. His constant learning of what is happening around the world in terms of music, his love for ethnics and his ability to blend it all up to create a very diverse mix makes every single celebration one to remember. A true professional in his field, he provides a signature that makes every single event or celebration to be distinctive by making you feel elegant, trendy, passionate, up-beat or whatever the environment requires. His keen ear and eye allows him to read the crowd adapting to the moment and momentum. He is simply raising the local standards when it comes to entertainment. Our success with Night Circus at SMoCA had him as a peer, with an exquisite selection of sounds and beats to match the themed trendy party. What better option other than Rani G? In addition, his collaboration with musicians playing LIVE during his performances add a true value to the local entertainment and arts scene." – Oscar DLS., Board Member .: SMoCA .: Owner of What Would Oscar Do & O Productions
"Rani is one of the most creative artists I have worked with in the past. With short notice he was able to turn around an amazing performance which included collaborating with another musician. He coordinated all the details with the Saxophonist and they played off each others music as if they were following sheet music. It was amazing to see and hear. In addition, Rani has been amazingly flexible and professional with limited direction and last minute changes. He was a pleasure to work with and I will be seeking out his professional services in the future." – Kristy B., Event Manager .: Diageo, Arizona / MKTGINC
"One of my board members from the Latino Alumni Association at Arizona State University recommended Rani for a fundraising event we were hosting for our scholarship recipients. He was flexible with our budget and provided us an excellent experience at our event! We enjoyed his mix of world and Latin music and the conga and guitar musician that he brought was an extra special touch. We look forward to having Rani at our next charity event!" – Sonia G., VP of Communications .: ASU Latino Alumni Association - Los Diablos
"I first met Rani G. years ago at a fundraising event for the Desert Botanical Garden. Rani was so easy to work with due to his "can and will do" type of personality and work ethic. I find it important for artists working together to get along well as this relationship always ends up in a better "product" for the client. Since then, we have worked at numerous other events together like CSA's Dawn of Time and SMoCA's Night Circus. His choice of music always livens up our performers. Whenever our clients mention that they are looking for a DJ, I always jump in and recommend Rani G. I certainly would do so every time given the opportunity." – Rachel S., Creative Director .: CSA Events (The professional special events branch of Circus School of Arizona)
"Raniiii!! Not surprised but AMAZING job last night. Everyone was and is still talking about how awesome you and your saxophonist Ted were. A few said best music at a wedding ever and my friends wife even yelled at him because he's in MAC and didn't ask you to do their wedding - Hahaha! We had such a great time. Thank you for EVERYTHING. You're good people and we can't wait to see you again when we get back. Btw, if you have time/energy tonight, swing by Short Leash (on Roosevelt) for food and drinks from 12-2 and continue the celebration with us." – Devin S.
Rani, here's what we'd like to share about our experience with you... which was AMAZING, by the way.
"Simply put - Rani rocked! We loved having him for our wedding. He was easy to work with, he understands events, and he knows music. He understood from the get-go what we wanted - someone who could bring down the house and create a super personal and intimate party. We wanted a really memorable experience, something more than a traditional DJ or a typical band. In addition to his live mixing, Rani incorporated a trumpet and a saxophone player to fill the venue with incredible dance vibes." – C'Pher & Morganne G.
"Rani is great to work with. A Bosnian, Indian, American wedding is not the simplest of events to put together. We trusted him to blend a wide variety of World music with the setting in mind, and he blew everyone away with the results. He had live musicians play along with his set adding another layer to the event, something that people still talk about today, over 4 years later! Rani is a true professional that I'd recommend without hesitation." – Hussein & Emina D.
"When I was looking for someone to do the music for my wedding, my mind immediately went to Rani. I have seen him play several venues throughout the Valley and I always get excited when our paths cross. Regardless of the venue, he is able to connect with the audience and customize his music accordingly without losing his unique style. Although his primary business is not weddings, that is exactly why I wanted him. I wanted GOOD music and knew he would deliver. His knowledge of so many local venues was a huge asset. He was familiar with my wedding venue and offered some really great suggestions. Other than the wedding prelude and recessional song, I really let him take the reigns. He knows good music and I trusted him. His music is solid, but his attention to detail and desire to do a great job comes across in everything that he does. He really goes above and beyond. As he was setting up for my outdoor wedding, he sent me some pictures of the views and guests arriving. Greatly appreciated and a nice touch. After the wedding, he handed me a CD of the dinner music. These are memories I will have forever. I’m excited to see where his career takes him! He has a really great gift." – Angie and Jason G.
"Rani made our wedding the kind of occasion that brings the fondest of memories. His attention to detail and genuine enthusiasm for our event made working with him a dream. He made suggestions that we would never have thought to include (a collaboration with a professional dancer as well as live musicians!) and beautifully melded old and new to keep the dance floor busy whether the track was Sinatra and Peter, Paul and Mary, or Train, Bonobo, and the Gotan Project. Our wedding was an incredible diverse mix of Indian and traditional American and it never felt forced, just a seamless blend of music and performance. He was willing and eager to make sure our guests had an experience that they still talk about, more than 3 years later. Rani's talent and those of his fellow performers that night cannot be paralleled. Often the music is an afterthought at a wedding, but for us it was a beautiful anchor to the event, the memories and the experience." – Jeanne Marie & Todd H.
"We loved our experience with World Life Music. Rani helped us with 2 very different events in the past few months. We truly appreciated the ease of making one call to handle all of the entertainment. He has access to a very diverse and talented pool of performers! Our guests were thrilled with a wide range over the two events from Flamenco Dancers, to a string quartet who did a special arrangement for us, to amazing DJ services. We highly recommend this company." – Becky and Dan L.
"We have had the pleasure of having Rani G provide DJ services at several events for us over the past few years. Rani provided not only the highest level of quality entertainment for our celebrations, but also brought something special with his unique blends of music and live musicians and entertainers. He continually exudes pure professionalism and amazing creativity. Our guests have repeatedly mentioned how unique and passionate he is about his craft. Nothing but the best!" – Steve & Ann G.
"Hi Rani, WOW! So fun last night.........the mix was perfect and I love how you communicate by email to make sure your client is happy and how you prepared the songs......... Loved your trumpet guy.........we had an awesome time and I passed around your cards.......should get some referrals!! Thank you!!" – Sara L.
Thanks so much for a wonderful event. You are a consummate professional. Our friends raved about your music. Thanks for playing everything we requested and adding the percussionist & trumpeter to accompany you." – Louise T.
"My husband and I recently had a party "just because". Rani was fabulous! Easy to work with and so professional. Our guests are still talking about how great the music was and how much they enjoyed an amazing trumpet player. Will definitely plan another "just because" so Rani can come back!! I know he does a lot of corporate events but is equally wonderful for a backyard event." – Ricki J. .: Paradise Valley, AZ
