Can't put into words how much Zamb'up exceeded all our expectations! We were looking for a versatile band that could handle both a laidback reception as well as a raucous party. On top of that, we wanted an acoustic set for the ceremony. Zamb'up heard all our requests, learned the songs, and killed the entire affair! They set an amazing tone for the ceremony, even finding a violinist accompaniment, and continued to grow throughout the reception. By the time dinner was over, they had everyone singing and dancing on the floor, even culminating in a song lead by the bride and groom. Kind talented professional, can't recommend this group enough out of space!!!TY!
The selection of songs will certainly make your event memorable.
