Corporate FunctionReviewed on September 27, 2019From New York City, NY

Bandleader Dawn and the additional members of ZapOte created a fun, festive and engaging ambiance for our cocktail party celebration. The group was responsive to feedback (we needed to have a quieter vibe in the early stages of the event so that people could have conversations easily), and generally very accommodating and flexible (we were able to use the band's microphone for a short speech and negotiate for an extra 30 minutes of play time). The quality of the music was great and party guests had nothing but complements. Everyone left smiling!

FestivalReviewed on October 29, 2016From Brooklyn, NY

ZapOte improved our Harvest Festival immensely. They were on time and very willing to accommodate my requests. They kicked off our event with enthusiasm and spunk that was lacking from previous years. I intend to hire them again for future engagements and recommend them to anyone who is looking for a marching band.

We booked Dawn Drake and Zapote for a banquet and they definitely exceeded our standards. Their communication with us was on point, their music and vocals were amazing, and the guests could not stop saying how much they liked the band. We are definitely considering bringing them back in the future. Thanks!

For first contact to completion of the event Dawn was a true pleasure to deal with. Her professionalism and attention to detail are only surpassed by her musical talent. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone. Thank you, Brian Finn Finley's of Green Street- Huntington, NY
