Review by Jonathan W.

WeddingReviewed on October 1, 2023From Woodridge, NY

We booked Zanzibar for our wedding on 9/16/23 and could not have made a better choice. Matt and his band are unmatched in their professionalism and talent! We had an absolute blast, and many of our guests remarked that they were one of the best bands they had ever heard. Zanzibar & Matt are incredibly organized - they made the entire process easy and worked with us to make sure everything went smoothly. We also booked their dueling pianos option for our afterparty, which was a hit with our guests! Thanks you for making our wedding even more special and putting on a performance we will never forget!

Thank YOU Jonathan, for trusting us with your BIG DAY, and being so easy to work with! We loved you guys! And we cant wait to celebrate with you again soon!

WeddingReviewed on February 5, 2023From New York City, NY

Thorough, professional, detail-oriented, and that's just the PLANNING of the reception. We couldn't be happier with the job that Mark, Matthew and the team at Shake Rattle & Roll Music did, in putting our wedding together, and that amazing band. They played oldies, they played disco, they played rock, they played current hits, and our guests loved it! A million thanks to everyone in the group - you were all ALLSTARS!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on January 26, 2023From Lindenhurst, NY

When I dreamt of my perfect wedding, I couldn't have imagined music like this. Matthew and his team (Debbie, Gene, and the rest of the PHENOMENAL band) exceeded every expectation. Our wedding (which was actually in June 2022, not January 2023) was the soundtrack of our relationship, and the team at Zanzibar knew EVERY song we wanted to hear. Earth Wind & Fire, James Taylor, Bruno Mars, and even some Led Zeppelin. Matthew did ALL the MC work for the reception, and coordinated everything with our maitre' d. Their leadership was seamless, and allowed us to really enjoy the day (shocking, right!?). We already want these guys back for our anniversary party!
