The best way to spice up your event is to add a live element. For a Punjabi Wedding, nothing beats adding an amazing Dhol Player and Live Boliyan Artist to engage your crowd. Last weekend we got to share the entertainment stage with 2 of Northern California’s best, and our good friends Gary Bassi and Raju Dholi. The 2 did an amazing job engaging the crowd. Bol Punjab De was there to help with logistics. Check out this short clip of Gary and Raju.
