  • We hired Joan Zen to play at our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception for our wedding and they were absolutely incredible! They went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly. Leading up to the wedding, they were very responsive and even learned some songs for our special day. They did such an incredible job with those songs and all of the other music throughout the day. Their ability get the crowd dancing and having a great time was off the charts. Ever since the wedding, our guests keep raving about how awesome the band was and how much fun they had. Thankfully, this is the only wedding I'll ever have to plan. But, if I had to plan 100 more weddings, I would book Joan Zen for every single one of them. Their energy, kindness, flexibility, and musical talent is truly incredible. And we seriously could not recommend them enough!

    Thank you Jake for making it so easy! Every step of the way you were so thoughtful and kind regarding the needs of the band! In fact, if you needed an extra job, I’d say you make a hell of a wedding coordinator! Mallory must have been so proud of you! Best time ever, thanks to your responsive and fun family and friends!

  • Joan Zen and her band were absolutely incredible - from the moment we started working together, she was extremely professional, kind, and flexible. Joan was generous with her time and provided a contract that was easy to understand and put us at ease planning a destination wedding. Her band was also extremely helpful on the day of the wedding and not only kept the dance floor packed all night but also handled the music queues during our ceremony. And then the dancing started. They read the room and played two unforgettable sets. They are excellent performers, have a great catalogue, and each member is a world class musician. It would have been impossible to have the best wedding ever without them. She was amazing and we couldn't recommend her and her band more highly. Trying to figure out how to have a second wedding so we can hire them again.

    Your wedding was one of the most special days of our lives. And I just watched the gorgeous video from Killer Creations! Totally epic, as was your special day. I hope the floating feeling is still keeping you both sailing in the perfect love you share. Thanks for having us there!

  • They were the perfect compliment to our rustic wedding at Skyridge Ranch in Ronan, Montana. Joan Zen played an awesome set including songs that they learned just for our wedding. We loved the music and so did all of our guests.

  • Joan Zen traveled to play at our wedding in Glacier National Park. The band arrived on time, set up with little direction, were helpful during the ceremony, and brought their "A" game for the entirety of there set. Our parents were dancing, the children were dancing, and the wedding party had an amazing time tearing up the pavilion. After choosing a list of songs from their extensive repertoire, Joan Zen was able to sense what we needed and flawlessly groove us through the night. I highly recommend catching a show of theirs when you can. And if your looking for an energetic, funky, soulfull, (not to mention a voice to die for) band for your wedding, Just know we would do it over in a heartbeat.

  • Joan Zen played our wedding in July of 2018. They made sure that they showed up early and were quick and professional with their setup. The band learned a couple specific songs that we wanted for dances and did them wonderfully. They had the entire wedding dancing for the entire time that they were playing, and all of our guests including those who had traveled from out of state were highly impressed and complimented the band. If you want a band that will make you feel the love, dance the night away, and be incredibly sweet and accommodating then Joan Zen is the band for your wedding.

    Tyler, thanks for making the time to review the band! What a great wedding! We could feel the love in the crowd. Have a grand time on your honeymoon! Best to you both!

  • Imagine waking up a few days following your at-home-wedding and finding the set-list hanging on your refrigerator. We smiled so big! What a lovely memory to keep. No band is more personal, more efficient and more party-ready. Joan Zen learned "our" song, and added songs we requested to the set-list. Communication was minimal and so easy, spot-on for what was needed. Our guests loved the tunes - many of whom have danced, danced, danced to Joan Zen at other venues and weddings. Joan Zen is the best thing we did for our wedding. Thank you. We love you guys!

    Thanks for taking the time to review the band! It was a perfect place, time, and event! So fun playing Money for Nothing and some old rock and roll in our sets for you. Thanks for having us!

  • I highly recommend Joan Zen for anyone's wedding! They were awesome from start to finish. They sent a very detailed email after I contacted them with a general wedding outline and a lot of info as to how things usually go with the scheduling of the day. They got to our venue right on time if not early and were super accommodating and easy going. When the reception started and they began playing we were blown away. Our guests were telling us all night how great the band was and we completely agreed. The music was exactly what we were wanting and Joan herself was joking around in-between songs and making everybody feel good! We of course had special song requests we told them about ahead of time which they nailed but we asked for a couple extra ones day of which they happily played and it made for some very special moments. Everybody absolutely loved the band, us included, they will make any wedding one to remember forever, book them!!!

    Ben, thank so much for having us play! It was a blast! What a great family you have....I hope wedded bliss is continuing on for you both! Best!

  • I'm a little late writing this, bit we had our wedding this last July and contacted Joan Zen to play. Right away they were very responsive and made a great effort to get all the scheduling and the songs right. So we already felt good about it going into the wedding but were really blown away when they started playing. They helped make our wedding so special, from the song we wanted to walk down the aisle to just the reception they were awesome! They even fit in a few special requests during the reception and all of our guests couldn't stop saying how much they loved the band. I would absolutely recommend Joan Zen for a wedding or any event really, they really knocked it out of the park!

  • We absolutely loved Joan Zen band and so did ALL our guests. They were recommended by several friends and went out of their way to travel for us and learn songs that we requested. They played longer and harder than they planned to, because we were all having so much fun. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We still love to see them play at friends weddings and around town when we can catch a night out. They’re the best.

  • Choosing the Joan Zen Band as the providers of the soundtrack for our wedding was the best choice we could have made. They made the night. We came away impressed by the breadth and depth of their ability, professionalism, positivity, and energy. From the beautiful classical guitar surrounding our ceremony, to the grooviest dance tunes that got everyone up and moving, to the perfect slow songs that gave us all a chance to dance closer, The Joan Zen Band brought it all. It's hard to know where to begin in detailing all of the extras that the band put into making our event special. Not only did the band learn to perfection a list of some of our favorite songs and played them at perfect moments, but they helped us (and a few of our conspiring guests) pull off some party shenanigans that really got everyone moving. After our first dance (another song we requested that they played exquisitely), they helped us get all of our guests in the dancing mood with an irresistibly funky version of the... Read more

  • As out-of-towners, we had to rely on youtube videos when picking our band, and though we were a bit nervous, Joan Zen turned out to be amazing! Great singer, great band, and our crowd was dancing all night long

  • Joan Zen absolutely killed it at our outdoor wedding! Through working with us during the planning process, they delivered on everything we asked for. They had the sound system set up perfectly for the ceremony and played a more upbeat classical tune for walking down the aisle. For the first dance and father/daughter and mother/son dance, they covered three different songs by Beck and other artists that aren't usually covered, and they nailed it. They wowed our guests and ourselves the rest of the night with tunes that made everyone go nuts on the dance floor and hold nothing back, which is what my husband and I were aiming for. Without telling them to do so, the band matched the energy of the crowd and had everyone grooving. They really were a huge part in making our wedding so special.

    It was such a great evening! Thank you for having us and for reviewing us! Wishing you both the best for marital bliss! Hope the honeymoon was a blast too!
