About

Al and his band played for 250 Seniors. They were a smash. Everyone said it was the best band we have ever had. The songs were familiar to almost everyone and we had many people up and dancing which doesn't normally happen. Thanks Al!!

The last thing you want to worry about is the entertainment when planning a wedding reception. That is not an option when working with a pro like Al Zaid. It was a pleasure doing business with Al and his music was top shelf. He kept the guests on the dance floor past my bedtime I had to shoo them off. All of our guests had nothing but praise for Al Zaid and his band. We recommend Al Zaid to those who enjoy good music and fun times. Thank you Al Zaid and gigmasters, Steve
