"Zeb and his crew Smoked Out Soul are as good as it gets. It was truly the best money we spent on our wedding. We fell in love with their band at a festival and were thrilled they made themselves available for us. Zeb was so easy to deal with and the entire band was just lovely. I really can't recommend them enough." - Emilee B. - Los Angeles, CA

☆☆☆☆☆ "Dear Zeb, We wanted to send you a quick thank you before we leave for our honeymoon to say how much we enjoyed having you as our wedding musician and DJ. We can’t imagine a better fit for us. You are so talented and calm. Dan’s dad was thrilled with your music and toast support, and Wendy has never danced that much!  We got lots of compliments on your band too. Your work was key to giving us and our loved ones a magical experience at Zephyr Lodge. We hope to see you perform in the Bay Area again, maybe even at a future Google event."


-Daniel and Wendy



☆☆☆☆☆ "I Couldn't be more happy with your performance on Sunday, it was incredible!  Thanks again for being a huge part of the best night of my life."  

-Corey Escobar



☆☆☆☆☆ “Eastdil Secured has hired Zebuel Early for the past four years in a row to DJ at our annual ski trip event in Lake Tahoe. I have found Zeb to be professional, organized, dependable and a fantastic DJ. He is always a huge hit with our clients and everyone looks forward to hearing him play at our events. I also recommended him for a very close friend’s wedding in Yosemite and they LOVED him! I would highly recommend Zebuel for any sort of party, corporate event or wedding. He is always open and willing to work with you on the music and has consistently been a pleasure to work with.”

-Maura Smith



☆☆☆☆☆ “Music is a huge part of wedding receptions; its affect is not always obvious to guests but as an event planner, I notice when the DJ is reading the crowd and the transitions of the reception appropriately.  A wedding DJ needs to be able to balance the tastes of not only the couple but also of their relatives and friends.  Zeb handles the transitions of the night beautifully.  He’s classy and refined for the reception and dinner.  Zeb holds the cheese (and yes, wedding DJs can unfortunately be cheesy), keeps your friends dancing while catering to grandparents enough so that they don’t want to leave early.  My favorite part about Zeb is that once the formalities and first dances are done, Zeb throws an awesome party.  Anyone can play the Top 40 – Zeb puts on a show.  It’s also worth noting that Zeb is professional, prepared and on time.  His musical knowledge and inventory allows him to keep the couple’s tastes in mind.   I am always thrilled when a couple chooses Zeb – it’s one less thing to worry about and one more thing to look forward to.”

-Tara Stetz



☆☆☆☆☆ "Zeb was awesome! We wanted a dance party at our wedding, a mix of music to satisfy grandparents and parents and kids then ultimately the late night crew - He did it all, everyone danced the entire night. And when the old timers and kids went to bed the room became the club scene we dreamed of and we danced until 2am when we had to shut it down. All our guest raved for days on how good he was and went online to get more of his music. Zeb gives a personalized experience. He mixed in all our pre-wedding requests with high energy beats and created perfect dancing flow through the entire night. You can get a band, but if you want people to dance hard and have a seriously good time, get Zeb to DJ your Wedding. It was clear from our first conversation that he wanted to make our wedding live up to our expectations, and he produced and then some. Sign Zeb on for your wedding - music (check). Figure out the other thousand details, the music is handled."

-Captain Rob Sanderson



☆☆☆☆☆ "Zeb was just what we needed for our private event. He was prompt and professional and kept the riders going all weekend long!"

-Mike Murciano



☆☆☆☆☆ "Zeb performed a funk-inspired DJ set at our company's award party and easily exceeded our expectations. He was extremely accommodating and helped customize a DJ set to fit our party's theme. Zeb provided a very high level of customer service and professionalism throughout the entire process from our first conservation all the way through his performance. I have seen many DJs perform in the Tahoe and San Francisco Bay area and after working with, and hearing Zeb, there is no one else I would recommend. Thank you!"
