Although my Travel Distance notes say I will only travel 200 miles, I am open to virtually any gig, anywhere. Let's talk details!
Zach was responsive, professional, and he did such an amazing time playing the songs we chose for our ceremony. He even came for our rehearsal to make sure everything went according to plan - we would definitely recommend Zach! He is very talented.
Response from Zach Zurn:
Jaimie, thanks so much! You had a beautiful ceremony and it was an honor to be a part of it! Congratulations!
My wife and I hired Zach to play at our wedding. Zach is a very talented artist, and the music was fantastic, but he was also willing to go above and beyond for us. He learned new songs that were important to us, had regular check ins leading up to the event to make sure he had all the information he needed, and made himself available to be at the rehearsal the day before to ensure there were no technical issues with the sound and equipment. He really helped make our day even more special.
I would highly recommend Zach if you are looking for someone to play at your event.
I knew Zach through my brother (they are pretty much best friends) and I know how amazing his singing voice was and how musically talented he was also, so when I got engaged Christmas 2011 and I started picking out music for the ceremony the ONLY person I could think of do it, was Zach! He completely outdid himself and it was even more perfect than I originally hoped and thought it would be! I had many other guests coming up to us after the ceremony and told how amazing our guitarist/singer was. He completely made our wedding day even more magical than it already was!
You want this guy for your event. Zach has one of the most beautiful voices I've heard and he is an incredibly gifted musician. He was a joy to communicate with and always replied promptly to our questions. We gave him the list of songs we wanted at our wedding, not completely sure how they would all work out, and he guided us along and chose all the right beginning and ending points for the songs. We would choose Zach over and over again!
Zach is more than just an incredibly talented musician, he is an amazing person to be around and work with. My wife and I had the perfect experience working with him on our wedding ceremony music. We just told him the songs we wanted in our ceremony, sent him links to all of the songs, and when each song was supposed to be played in the ceremony. Zach listened to all of our desires and gave his feedback after listening to our songs. He was super easy to talk to and made this part of the wedding planning really fun and exciting! He came to the rehearsal and actually sang parts of each of the songs during the rehearsal and it was amazing! We were blown away, but not surprised in the least bit. After our wedding ceremony everyone was so impressed and honestly told us it was some of the most amazing music they have ever heard at a wedding (to this day, more than 2 years later!). My wife and I had a beautiful wedding, and Zach was a huge reason why! I couldn't recommend him highly enough!
Zach sang at our wedding. Beforehand, he was professional and took the time to make sure that the song was exactly what we wanted. He didn't just show up that day (though he probably could've and it would've still have sounded great). He is a creative and talented musician.
This guy practiced and practiced for our wedding, sent us videos to preview what he would play, and even made some tweaks to the song for us. The wedding turned out amazing and he gave us great music for our ceremony.
Zach played for my wedding. He played a song as we sat parents and grandparents and transitioned perfectly into the processional song. He also played with me and my wife as we led two of our favorite worship songs during the ceremony. He's a phenomenal multi-instrumentalist and comes very prepared. He has an excellent voice and also has a great feel for flow and transitions. He knows how to ask the right questions to make sure he delivers exactly what you want. He's very flexible and super easy to work with. If you hire Zach, you can be 100% that your music will be great. He's worth it simply for the peace-of-mind.
Zach sang and played guitar at my wedding this past fall 2015. One of my favorite memories of that day was the music. Being a musician myself, I had high expectations. The music was everything I asked for and dreamed of. Zach is professional, a talented musician, and a wonderful asset to any event. I can't say enough wonderful things about his music and talent. :)
Zach took our wedding to another level! We had an outside ceremony and there were plenty of factors that played in to attempting to do live music. Zach handled it like a professional and got the sound system working and everything sounded great. He also had a great feel for the tone of the ceremony and was able to play off of the energy. He built the bride's entrance song and hit the climatic moment of the song right as she became visible. It was perfect and it will be a moment I will always remember and cherish. Zach is one of those guys that you like from the moment you meet him and he's a humble, serving, extremely talented musician. Highly recommend.
