Zak was wonderful! He had a wide range of music that fit our event perfectly, and he was a lovely person to talk to as well. Would highly recommend for any occasion!

I hired Zak to play for my wedding last night and it was the best decision I made for such a special day! As a music teacher myself, it can be very hard to enjoy listening to someone play and fully surrender to the moment, but I can safely say that Zak’s talent is undeniable. I can’t thank him enough for making my special day even more perfect, and I have been recommending him to all of my friends! Thanks again Zak.
