“I need more than 5*s! Cracking band who are lively, versatile, quirky and have oodles of personality. So much more than just another covers band. Everyone's been raving about how good Zazu were at our wedding and we couldn't agree more. Book them now! X”F. Mosco - Wedding
“Saw these last night in Kidderminster. Amazing band. Loved the quirky style.”M Robert - Party, Kidderminsister
“Whole wedding party loved the band, people who never danced were up on their feet! Their repertoire is so diverse and really suited our autumn, barn wedding. The quality of the vocals and instruments were truly out of this world. The band as people each and every one are absolutely lovely. Highly recommended to celebrate your special day. We will always be truly grateful for making our day special x lots of love.”K & H Heydon - Wedding
“What. A. Band. I knew when I heard the Britney Spears cover that you were going to be our wedding band!!! Not only are Zazu the slickest band I've heard at a wedding, but you made our wedding so much fun and personal. Mike and I thank you so much - you gave us the most incredibly fun and energetic evening to our wedding, our guests cannot stop talking about the music!! The choices of songs were just perfect and your rendition of our first dance just made it for us. Thank you Zazu for making our night!”S & T. Thornley - Wedding, Pangean Barn
“Zazu played my sister's wedding recently and were fantastic! They got everyone dancing, were energetic and fun, amazing musicians and vocalists. We loved every second and didn't want them to finish. I'd highly recommend them for weddings or parties... So much fun and lovely people!”B. Carter - Wedding
“We booked Zazu for our wedding and they were wonderful both in the run up to the wedding and on the day. We had a couple of special requests which they accommodated with no problems, and all our guests have told us how much fun they had dancing to the terrific set list”M. Vose - Wedding
“Just a few lines to say thank you. Zazu were amazing! First of all you sounded fantastic! The band were all really friendly and the contact in the run up to the wedding was great. They were flexible on the day, fitting in with where we wanted them to play, and making the sets fit around our evening. The guests loved you, and the children really loved you. I’ll never be able to hear Seven Nation Army again without thinking of you (miaow). Thanks for topping off a perfect day. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of booking you.”M. Hinchliffe - Wedding
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that? Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features modern day dance floor fillers to your favourite rock and pop anthems, so there's certainly something for everyone.
Do you take requests? We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up? 60 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play? At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for? We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception? Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute full band acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.
What is the difference between the ‘pre-mixed DJ service’ that comes with the standard package and the 'band member to DJ live' which is an optional extra? The pre-mixed DJ service is where the band put on a bespoke playlist (you can request up to 30 songs in advance for this) through the PA before and after their live sets. We do this at most events and it works great - the volume of the music would be the same as if you had a DJ.
If you upgrade to the live DJ service, you can still send over preferences in advance, but you will also have a band member selecting and mixing tracks live on the night, as well as taking requests. The DJ will be happy to make important announcements but they will not talk constantly over or between tracks (that's just not our style!). We also think it's important to say that the DJ won't have a separate DJ booth - they will set up in an appropriate space (ideally to the side of the stage) and the PA/lighting will be the same as what is being used by the band.
Do you have your own PA and lighting? Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on? The published guide price is based on our 5-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Sussex. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hour drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
Will you perform our first dance? Yes, as long as we have three weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require? We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require? 2 x 13-amp sockets are fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? The band's standard rider is for a hot meal and soft drinks for the band members or a £25 pp rider buyout.
Can we see you play live before booking? As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
