  • Zeb was not only personable and very professional in the introductory and planning phases of the process, but he was also amenable to suggestions and very flexible. He was extremely thorough and helpful, and basically left it up to us how much or little we wanted to be involved with curating and shaping the musical selections at the different points of our wedding. During the wedding he worked closely with the wedding coordinator, and with us, without needing too much input since we had everything carefully planned beforehand because he made it so easy to do so. His drummer, his dj skills and his ability to blend live performance with the classics we loved really had our guests gushing over how fun the music was. Seriously he was the best wedding DJ and live music experience we've ever had. Thanks Zeb!

    Hi Andrew, Thanks so much for the review! It was such a pleasure working with you and Paris. I hope the honeymoon in Africa was great and diving with the great whites was amazing! Yikes ;) Playing guitar and DJing with Paul on the drums was so much fun and the afterparty was off the hook! Plus I'll never forget the horses galloping in the background as you two tied the knot! All the best, Zeb

  • Zeb was great! He listened to what we wanted and built a great set. He knew how to feel out the room and how to accommodate guest requests. He also was great with my nephew and younger cousin who loved the DJ booth. Due to a landslide the quartet for the ceremony was late, but Zeb was there early and stepped up immediately and was ready with music in its place. I'd recommend Zeb for any wedding or event. We couldn't have been happier.

    I had your back Phillip! You and your crew were amazing to play for. I love looking back at the pictures from your wedding. That Dirty Dancing move was a highlight and Patrick Swayze ain't got nothing on you ;) Your little cousins were a hoot! Future DJ alert!!! Cheers - Zeb

  • Zeb was our wedding DJ this summer and totally exceeded our expectations! We gave him minimal direction to do what he does best, and he most definitely delivered. He really understood how to get EVERYONE onto the dance floor and progressed the party into the night. Even our grandparents still can't stop talking about how much fun they had, and he was kind enough to let some of our younger family members put their turntable talents to the test. We highly recommend Sounds Elevated for any event and hope you have as much fun as we did! ☮

  • Zeb was a fantastic DJ! He was wonderful to work with — so accommodating, so chill and so personable. Our guests raved about Zeb's work at our wedding. As one guest told me, she was waiting for a song to come on that she didn't love so she could leave the dance floor and grab a drink, but such a song never came on. Zeb rocked the first part of dancing at our wedding, which was more inspired by oldies, pop and classic dance hits and then did an amazing job DJing our after-hours party, mixing up the classics with club beats and great transitions. Everyone loved his work! He was also a wonderful, low-key emcee throughout the night and an overall kind person. We highly recommend him!

  • We hired Zeb for our outdoor wedding in Berkeley, CA in July 2017. He was fantastic from our initial phone contact through the end of our wedding evening. Zeb is professional, courteous and organized. He will be as much of a critical centerpiece and organizer as you need him to be or will gladly defer to a coordinator and take direction. My wife and I highly recommend Zeb, here is what we were most impressed with: - Reading us at initial phone consultation and subsequent follow ups, communicating with us the way we wanted to be communicated with. - Punctuality - he was on site before our wedding coordinator! - Professionalism. Clear, concise communication, perfectly dressed, kind to guests. Happily took direction from our coordinator. - Great equipment. Top of the line, capable of handling any indoor/outdoor space. - The music. Zeb did an incredible job of managing the needs/wants of my wife and I but at the same time seamlessly reading the crowd and incorporating requests. We... Read more

    Thanks John. You're wedding was a treat. Redwood grove ceremony and Palm Tree reception for the win! Great to see you at Andrews wedding later in the summer too!

  • Zeb was so so so many on and before our wedding day. He was there every step of the way. I go a recommendation list of DJs from our venue and sent him a quick email and he responded to me within minutes. He was so kind and easy going (which is great in the stressful wedding process.) He listened to my request, concerns and executed perfectly. During our wedding, he was there before the event to set up and I just completed trusted him with everything else! His prices are so reasonable especially considering how awesome he is! He somehow managed to please a wide variety of age groups at my wedding and made sure everyone had an incredible time. He was so lovely to work with and I cannot say enough good things about him! Seriously, PICK SOUNDS ELEVATED!

    Hi Bri! I appreciate the kind words and love the photos you sent. I hope you and Ryan are loving the married life! It was really great DJing your wedding and the day couldn't have been more beautiful. Wishing you all the best! - Zeb

  • Zeb was a fantastic addition to our wedding. He was professional even in the face of a very unique and intense wedding. One of his great assets is his flexibility. He can play many different situations from more straight forward DJ, to party DJ to full band performances; all of which we used to great effect! And he pulled it all off flawlessly without ever breaking a sweat. Cool calm and collected is what you need when everything else is so stressful. He even helped me rehearse and cued me when I sang my first song in public!

  • I would recommend Zebuel 100% for any wedding big or small. We put on a wedding with multiple events, and he was the backbone of each of the days. Zebuel can bring a full band, be the band himself, play guitar, dj, mc, run sound, entertain, and improvise based on what's happening, making him hireable for an entire weekend, not just one event or day. And he's funny, personable, adaptive, and trustworthy. There is no way we could have pulled off musically what we did, without Zebuel being the pulse of it the entire 4 days.

    Thanks for the review Ann! I can't tell you how awesome it was to be a part of your destination wedding in Arizona. It was such a great experience to be involved in so many aspects of the event. It never felt like work and I had a blast the whole time. Multiple DJ sets, acoustic guitar and singing the "Don't Worry Be Happy" acapella vocal bass part were all great! The highlight for me was playing guitar for you and Kerry's duet of "Islands in the Stream"! So cool :) Thanks again and all the best!

  • Zeb was amazing! Prior to the wedding he was always available for questions and to make sure we had everything set and ready for the big day. It made for a stress free celebration. We actually added some extra speaker set ups, that we had not planned for, only a couple days before the wedding and he was able to accommodate without any issues. He was on time and even offered to help out any of the other vendors if need be. He played music during our cocktail hour, dinner and once it was time to dance. He seamlessly interacted with the guests and other vendors and was just a real pleasure to have at our wedding. We sent him a list of music we liked, he took it added some other great music and made an amazing play list!! All of our guests from our 90 year old grandpa to our college friends were out dancing all night. We truly enjoyed having him as part of our celebration. If you are looking for a DJ, you've found him! I can't recommend Zeb enough!

    Hey Adam, Thanks for the review! I have nothing but fond memories of your wedding up in wine country! Your hospitality was second to none and all of your guests were so nice. What a fun night, thanks again! - Zeb

  • Zeb single-handedly made our wedding the incredible party we had imagined. First, he happily made the trip to Elk, CA (3 hours north of SF) for the big day without complaint. The ceremony music (from what I remember...I was in a bit of an emotional fog throughout) was exactly as we'd imagined, and Zeb was even willing to help our catering staff schlep chairs back down from the bluff where it occurred to the reception barn. As for reception music, it was just perfect. He did an amazing job reading the crowd and keeping the energy up and bodies moving until the wee hours of the morning! So many of our friends told us how much they enjoyed his music. Our vision was to have an epic dance party, and that vision was wholly achieved! Zeb also played for soooooo long (ceremony started at 4:30pm, reception ended at 12midnight), for which my husband and I were so grateful. We didn't get to really start enjoying ourselves on the dance floor until after 10 (turns out schmoozing at a wedding is ... Read more

  • Our wedding planners recommended Zeb and I'm so glad they did. Zeb was so easy to work with - from our initial conversation to developing the vibe that we wanted to have at our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and party - Zeb understood what we wanted and delivered. He also did a great job MC-ing and keeping things moving. Zeb is a really sweet nice guy who is clearly talented both at acoustic guitar and DJ.

    Thanks so much Lauren! I really appreciate it. Your wedding was great and I'm so honored to have been a part of it!

  • We hired Zeb on the recommendation of our wedding planner, and we could not be happier! Zeb is as professional as they come. From the first contact through the wedding he was responsive, clearly communicated expectations, and overall a joy to work with. You never know what you are going to get when hiring a DJ you haven’t heard before, but rest assured, with Zeb you will not only get a DJ who reads the crowd perfectly and plays music that gets EVERYONE going (including my 87 year old grandma who hasn’t danced in years!), but you will get someone who takes pride in what he does. Zeb played acoustics for our ceremony and even learned a few new songs for us (Queen’s “Don’t stop me now”). For the reception we built a playlist of songs we like, and Zeb took that cue to build the most complete wedding set list ever. The best thing about his performance is that during the entire ceremony he was learning what pumped people up, what didn’t, and what would literally make people ... Read more

    Thanks so much you two! Your wedding was one for the books. It was so fun and such a great crowd to play for. That makes it easy! Take care, Zeb

  • Zeb was great! Super laid back and mostly responsive. My only real qualm was that he was almost too hands-off and we could have used a little more guidance at times. On the other hand, his pre-wedding questionnaire was incredibly thorough, so I can't really complain too much :-)

    Thanks for the review Eric! I had a great time at your wedding and really enjoyed playing guitar for your ceremony and DJing your reception. My fiance' Lindsey also had a blast providing and running the photo booth for you and Jaclyn. We do our best to be thorough and work with every client in the months leading up to the wedding. We send out questionnaires and provide lots of examples of music to choose from. We work with you on your photo template and musical choices. We are prompt and responsive. We also do our best to work with and assist your planner the day of to make sure things go smoothly and go according to plan. Our hope is that your planner guides you while we are DJing and lets us know how we can help. At times it may seem that we are hands off because we aren't constantly on the microphone, but rest assured we take every detail seriously and treat every event with top priority and utmost importance. We are happy that your wedding was a complete success and everyone had a great time! Thanks again, Zeb
