  • Zeb provided beautiful acoustic accompaniment for our ceremony, and a spot on setlist for lunch and our reception. We received numerous compliments on his music and enjoyed every bit of having him at our wedding. We can't recommend Sounds Elevated highly enough!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Sounds Elevated was amazing for our wedding. Zeb handled all of the coordination prior and then Ian was our DJ day of. In addition, they provided extra set up for the ceremony (including microphones), speakers for the cocktail hour, and the photo booth. Also, Ian is a guitarist, and was able to play for the ceremony as well. Having a one stop shop for everything was wonderful. Zeb was always very responsive and helpful throughout the process. I can't recommend them enough!

  • 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.

  • Zeb played, DJ'ed and MC'ed our wedding, solo, and totally crushed it on all fronts. During the ceremony, he played live acoustic guitar, going so far as to learn a few special songs ahead of the wedding to make the ceremony exceptionally special. At cocktail hour, Zeb kept the vibe bright and happy with some great live tunes. The outdoor space we were in was beautiful, and the sounds elevated the moment to peak heights. During dinner, the background music was classy, and Zeb was very attentive at enabling toasts and speeches with mics and sound coordination. Oh yeah - he brought all the AV gear needed to fill a massive outdoor space with the voices during the ceremony. Did I mention he is awesome! Our officiant, and I the groom both had wireless clippy-mics (that an industry standard term) rigged up, and their was a hand held wireless mic for the blessing bit for the moms. That mic got some good use during dinner too, and even my 90 year old grandma could hear what was goi... Read more

    Matt you and Megan were so great! I loved hearing the stories about your time in Africa and other world travels. Your best man was spot on, your positive energy is infectious and that made playing music and DJing really easy and super fun! Enjoy the honeymoon!

  • DJ Zeb was THE best! He took everything we wanted and made it even better. He really knows how to read a room and play the songs everyone wants to hear. He was also just a cool guy that we wanted to talk to and get to know instead of just some vendor we were using. Highly recommend!

  • Zeb was seriously the best. From the first consultation to the day of execution, he was extremely communicative, friendly, and easy going! Throughout the planning process, asking him questions and getting his expertise on thing was a breeze. He always replied to every email right away and always made us feel like we were his top priority. We loved his vibe and attitude towards music. Being that Zeb is a musician first and a DJ second he truly understands music on a different level. He listened to all of our likes and more importantly dislikes when it came to music selection and did a fantastic job incorporating every request into the night at exactly the right moment. Using Spotify to make playlists gave us a chance to share our music tastes with him, while still allowing for Zeb to use his expertise to sculpt the vibe for the entire night. We loved how relaxed he was on wedding day, set up all his equipment without bothering any wedding guests and hit every timeline moment spot on. Ze... Read more

  • Zeb was incredible with all aspects of our wedding. He played live guitar at our ceremony, and even learned how to play a song that we requested that he hadn't played before, and he sounded awesome. He helped us curate playlists for our cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. His reception music was amazing! Our dance floor was packed the entire night, and everyone was impressed by him. He worked with us to play a unique song for our first dance (we surprised our guests with something choreographed) He went above and beyond and truly made our wedding special!

  • Best DJ/Band performance we had ever seen. He had everyone up on the dance floor all night and managed to play all of our family and our favorite songs with live components! Our guests absolutely loved it and everyone of all ages had a blast and won't stop talking about it. Zeb was also extremely responsive and easy to work with all years as we prepped for our wedding. He also did an awesome job as MC for the wedding....really truly a professional and did it with a smile on his face. We couldn't recommend him and his team highly enough!

    Thanks so much Alison! You and Mike are the coolest. We had a blast at Park Winters with you and your crew. Hope to see you at a show soon! Enjoy the honeymoon. Best, Zeb

  • Zeb is amazing! We hired him and Lindsey with So Good Photobooth to be our DJ (ceremony, sound/mics, reception, dancing) and photobooth for our wedding right outside of Yosemite last month. Pre-wedding: We inquired with a few DJ prospects, but after talking with Zeb, we knew he was the right DJ for us. A non-cheesy DJ that isn't a mic-hog and has great taste in music, especially since he's a musician himself! He was incredibly organized and responsive via email throughout the wedding planning process. He also utilizes an online questionnaire and a wedding music planning app, as well as Spotify, to help with your selection of music for the day of. It made wedding planning much easier knowing we were in good hands with Zeb when it came to hiring a DJ. Wedding: When it came to the day of, Zeb arrived earlier than expected to our venue to set things up, which is great! Everything went so smoothly throughout the entire day. He played some great music, everything from motown, oldies, ... Read more

  • Zeb was amazing. He did a great job DJing - we gave him barely any guidelines for the reception, but he still played exactly what we wanted. He sent out detailed surveys before the date which allowed us to give him an idea of what we wanted playing at various times throughout the ceremony and reception. He even kept playing after the set finish time when our whole party wanted to keep dancing! We worked with his fiance Lindsey for our photobooth, which was also exceptional. They both traveled to Tahoe for our wedding, and their travel prices were very reasonable. They come highly recommended!

  • If Zeb is available, book him! We booked Zeb for our reception and couldn't have been any happier and wonder what our wedding would have been like without him! He played the guitar for cocktail hour and then DJ'd the reception so we were excited that he doesn't only specialize in one area. With our small wedding and older people from our families attending, my husband and I initially thought the dance floor was going to be empty most of the night. Well, Zeb had the party going so much that even our older family members were on the dance floor all evening as they enjoyed Zeb's selection. He was great to work with and my husband and I think that without Zeb, our wedding wouldn't have been so great!

    Thanks so much for having us Rebekah! You and David were so cool and it was blast playing for you and your crew. All the best!
