  • Ok, Zeb and Lindsey KILLED IT! I came across their profile on an instagram hashtag and SO grateful I found them. My husband loves music and we decided that we did want to make sure our DJ and vibes fit us as a couple. I love to dance and Jared loves the art of music, so we were so happy that we found a DJ-Live Music Combo. Zeb as a DJ by himself is seriously amazing, and then when you get to add live drums or a saxophone, it is GAME OVER! Our guests had such an amazing time dancing and I loved his emceeing, it wasn't the cheesy wedding style but just totally read the vibes of the dance floor, us as a couple and mixed in what we requested and what we were all feeling. What we appreciated the most is that he also was able to play live acoustic for our ceremony. Jared loves playing the guitar so having live music for our ceremony was perfection. He was able to play Harvest Moon and Here Comes the Sun, then transitioned perfectly for cocktail hour with our hipster cocktail vibes then to ge... Read more

  • I own and operate a wedding venue in the Tahoe area and have worked with Zeb from Sounds Elevated multiple times in recent years. Zeb is among the most professional vendors I have had the pleasure of working with and surpass my clients' expectation every single time. What's unique about Zeb, unlike the many other DJs we've worked with, is that Zeb is an accomplished musician and original DJ. He not only can play live music for the ceremony and cocktail hour, but can also mix and create one-of-a-kind songs and beats during the dancing hours. No song is every the same and he gets guests dancing more than any other DJ I've worked with. He's exceptional. Simply put. You'd make a mistake not to hire him.

  • Zeb and Sounds Elevated was the best possible DJ for our wedding. He played guitar during the ceremony and then for the reception he had the dance floor going crazy from start to finish. We also hired Teddy on the saxophone who was incredible. This was a great solution if you want some live aspect but can't have an entire band for whatever reason. Zeb and Teddy worked so well together to make the songs feel like live performances and Teddy was able to walk throughout the dance floor getting everyone involved. Felt like a concert! Zeb was easy to communicate throughout the process and he customized the music to be exactly what we wanted. He provided example playlists to get us started so we could tell him the vibe we were going for and then he absolutely delivered. I also saw a couple of his shows in San Francisco which are worth checking out even if you don't hire him for your wedding! I can guarantee you won't be disappointed with Zeb. I'm confident he would be great in a variety o... Read more

  • We worked Sounds Elevated for a few different components of our wedding including acoustic tunes for our ceremony, a jazz trio for our cocktail hour, MC duties for our reception and late-night DJing at the end of our reception. Zeb and his team nailed it on all fronts. His acoustic set the perfect backdrop for our intimate and personal ceremony... it really set the tone and made it feel like us. The jazz trio we had for our cocktail hour was fantastic and made it feel lively and fun yet classic at the same time. Lastly, Zebs MC and DJing were on point!! We had such a blast closing out the night dancing. Zeb was also really great to work with and helped provide us with some guidance on how to organize our thoughts to make sure we got to hear all our favorites while setting the tone we wanted for the night. Sounds Elevated hung in there with us despite having to cancel our original wedding and reschedule around COVID and for that, we will be forever grateful. Thanks again, Z... Read more

  • Can't say enough good things about Zeb & Sounds Elevated! We got in touch with him about a year before our wedding in July 2020. Prior to COVID creating so much uncertainty, Zeb was organized, responsive and professional! When we had to pivot our wedding plans he was able to accommodate and went above and beyond to offer solutions for ceremony, reception and after party. He was on time, personable and mixed everything PERFECTLY! Highly recommend Zeb to anyone.

  • I'll never forget walking down the aisle with my mom and dad by my side, the sun shining down on smiling friends and family, with the sound of Zeb's acoustic "Wish You Were Here" helping me float all the way to the altar. To say that Zeb went above and beyond for our wedding is an understatement. When we had to postpone our original date due to COVID-19, Zeb remained positive and supportive the entire time, doing everything he could to help us prepare for our big day. He not only crushed our ceremony music, but he NAILED his DJ set and had our guests dancing to a variety of tunes all night. I don't want to get married ever again, but I will definitely keep Zeb's information just in case. :) Thanks, Zeb! Jack Huber

  • Zeb made everything so easy! Sounds Elevated made sure to get our sound, and take into account the wedding playlist we had put together before the big day. Kept the party going after dinner, and ensured everything went according to our program's schedule. Also so helpful with suggestions on how to set everything up to suit our needs. Uplighting that they provided was amazing and definitely enhanced our event--they even moved the lighting from outdoor to indoor for us! Seriously the best. Thank you again for everything you all did!!

  • If you want great music throughout your big day and an epic dance floor, book Zeb! Our #1 priority was to have music that kept people dancing all night and he delivered! It’s not just that Zeb plays good music, he plays songs at the EXACT right time. It’s absolutely an art. We knew we were going to be in good hands with Zeb, but we didn’t realize how amazing he’d be. First, he is an absolute professional, is so easy to work with, and makes sure he makes your day exactly how you envision. It’s incredible. Second, he came up clutch when we decided not to have a piano player at our ceremony last minute - he stepped up and played beautiful acoustic guitar. Finally, he crushed the reception! He was on point with the mic and I had so many different people ranting and raving about the music the next day. My aunt couldn’t stop talking about the throwbacks that kept her on the dance floor. My wife’s greek relatives loved that the whole room was dancing to the traditional g... Read more

    Thank you Natalie! We had so much fun at your wedding. The DJ set was one of my favorites of the summer and playing guitar at your church was a another highlight for me. I appreciate being a part of such an awesome occasion!

  • Zeb absolutely CRUSHED IT at our wedding! Process: Easy to work with, took an interest in our wants and needs, used our Spotify lists of 250+ songs heavily as requested. On time, on point, and on budget. Great communication; coordinated seamlessly with our planner, videographer and other vendors. Late changes were met with "can-do" attitude, he didn't skip a beat. Results: Great ceremony sound and a full dancefloor until the last song - including a lot of folks we didn't expect to stick around that long. Perfect balance of our must-play selections and reading the crowd / adding his own vibe. He was watching us all night and immediately responsive to signals for "please move the buffet line along" and "hey this dance is getting long and awkward" and "let's get this party turnt up right now!" A number of guests commented on what a great dance party it was.

    Thanks so much Jonas! You and Andrea are the best. I had so much freakin fun at your wedding! The venue was absolutely beautiful and your crew was awesome. All the best to you and the wife on your journey together!

  • What a great experience... Zeb and his musicians were a perfect addition to our couple's wedding celebration. Not only was he responsive, helpful in the music selection, organized, professional and an amazing deal for such a spectacular performance, he was an absolute joy to be around! His vibe is refreshing and fun, a much appreciated feel given the times of Covid right now. We really truly loved the mix of the live band and the DJ, and are really looking forward to working with Zeb and the team in the future.

  • Wow! Zeb and his fellow musicians were all unbelievably amazing. We hired Sounds Elevated to have Zeb play acoustic guitar during our wedding ceremony, provide a pianist for cocktail hour, and to have a live drummer and DJ set during the reception. Music (and the good vibes it brings) were very important to us, and Sounds Elevated exceeded expectations for us and our guests. Zeb worked with us extensively prior to the wedding to learn new songs on guitar and offer suggestions for our playlist. He quickly picked up on the style we wanted and brought it to the next level. The pianist was absolutely stunning and incredibly talented. He created the perfect classy ambiance we were seeking. The drummer was remarkable and added such an awesome sound to every song. And of course, Zeb is the backbone of it all. Month’s later, we’re frequently listening to our wedding DJ set, which he kindly provided on mp3 so we can relive the party anytime, anywhere. Truly grateful for finding this lev... Read more

  • We honestly couldn't have imagined a better DJ than Zeb. He was so easy to work with, dependable, and most importantly had the majority of our guests on the dance floor, for every single song, for two hours straight! He shut down the night with a full floor. As someone who works in the wedding industry, I see a lot of weddings and a lot of DJs. We loved Zeb because he wasn't cheesy, gave great advice and support along the way, and does a great job mixing live instead of presetting everything and just clicking play. You can really tell he truly loves what he does. We'd recommend him over and over again. If you're worried about what DJ to pick, go with Zeb! I promise you 100 percent you won't regret it.
