  • I have been hiring Joan Zen for 4 plus years and they are our top band. Our establishment meets full capacity every time they play. I give them the top spot every month they play here. Highly recommend them for your wedding needs!

  • Joan can sing anything, literally anything, and she will leave you laughing, crying, singing, and dancing your tush off! The band has an enormous playlist— pop, jazz, soul, reggae— to appeal to any tastes, any venue you can imagine. The boys in the band are all geniuses in their own right. Your group will feel so energized by this band! If you want your guests to remember your special day, book this band now!

  • I book live music for Finn dining room, deck, and special events. Joan Zen is a sure bet. Whether solo, trio, or full band, Joan and her musicians bring professionalism, energy, and artistry to every performance. I have every confidence in Joan, so If you ever have an opportunity to book her, do it! Andrew Huppert.

  • Joan Zen is a premiere band in Montana. They play a variety of music that appeals to all ages. It is energetic to the point that you can't just sit still. She has played our Eagle's club venue for a number of years, as one of our favorite artists. Truly talented and just great people to work with. We Love them!

  • As the owner of the Bitter Root Brewery I've known and worked with Debra and Jason Hicks since they came to Momntana in the late 90's. From the very beginning of the Joan Zen Band to the present they have been completely professional in every way. Working with most all local and regional musicians, I've found Joan Zen to be among the most diverse and best musicians available. I would highly recommend their talent for any event, from an outdoor concert, to a small private gathering, Debra and Jason deliver what you need to complete your event :)

    Thank you, Tim! Your support from the beginning was integral to our success and I know that our partnership with the brewery over the years is the biggest reason we felt so connected upon arrival. The last best place was our first great space. Love you all.

    Thanks for taking the time to review us, Becky. We LOVE playing for the party annually and missed it this year due to Covid, but we can't wait to be together again!

  • I wanted to hire Joan Zen as the musical guest at our fundraiser because they are very popular in the valley we live in and I'd hoped their name on our posters would increase ticket sales. It did, but what I didn't know was that they would be a joy to work with, supportive of non-profits, helpful with promotion and also encouraging and supportive after the event had concluded. They are a talented musical group and wonderful people. 15/10 recommend!

  • Joan Zen has a wide variety of talent in different genres of music. They are flexible, listen well to what your needs/wants are and then deliver over the top. They are also SO MUCH FUN! Joan can belt out everything from Joplin to more modern day artists and has a wonderful voice and stage presence. Any opportunity we get to go listen to them, we go and the house is always packed!

    Thanks, Laurie for reviewing us. Your opinion means a lot to us given your work with music at the PAC. Hope to see you all soon.

  • 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.

    Thank you for singing with us Katie! It was a wonderfully special celebration and I’m hoping that you are still reeling with joy!

  • 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.

    Ryan, thanks for having us play! What a blast! And thanks for taking good care of the boys with the air BnB. Made it so easy to travel! Blessings to you both!

  • 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

  • The Hamilton Downtown Association has a yearly event on Main St culminating in the "street dance". In the Bitterroot valley the Joan Zen Band really brings the people out and signals that a good time will be had by all. Far and away they've been our best band and our biggest draw. Jason and Deb are reliable artists who will get the crowd up and dancing.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We love the annual opportunity to rock the ‘root! Hope to see you all soon!
