"Hello Mark, I wanted to thank you for your hard work at our ceremony. The bride's family got lost on the way to the site. Unfortunately, they were too far out for me to send someone out to get them, and they don't speak any English so my wife had to give them directions over the phone while getting ready. It's was pretty tense for a while. They were about 30 minutes late, but you kept the music going in that sweltering heat without knowing what was happening. I was really impressed by your professionalism. Because the music was going strong, I don't think anyone even realized there was a problem. It's funny, but even before the wedding, while I was still communicating with everyone by email, I was telling my friends that a couple of my vendors really stood out, and it was obvious that they were pros even before I met them. You were one of the people, and it turns out the impression I had was dead on. The ceremony music was great. I would highly recommend you to anyone. Sincerely, Eric Towers" Eric Towers, Groom, Harry P. Leu Gardens, Sept. 20th 2009
"Dear Mark and Kathy, You guys were without a doubt our favorite part of the reception! You MADE the reception!

We so appreciated your professionalism (from the first point of contact until the last note was played), and your love and respect for the classics.

Lanning & Monica Turner, Bride & Groom, Tuskawilla Country Club, Winter Springs, FL June 20, 2008

Mark played solo for our ceremony and was even patient when the site manager forgot to get us when the guests had all been seated. Having a trumpet for the ceremony was elegant yet unique and fitting as it was a military wedding. Their play list for the reception had everyone on the dance floor dancing the night away! Mark was so easy and accommodating to work with, especially being a busy bride with a groom in another state during the whole planning. Their commitment and integrity goes above and beyond words. Everyone could not stop talking about how great the music was, how wide the selection was and how much fun our wedding was. We are a group that likes to party and the Z Street Band had us doing just that! You can't help but get up and dance when they play! Mark and the Z Street Band was the perfect entertainment for our perfect wedding!" Vanessa and Mark Miller, Bride and Groom - Columbia Restaurant, St. Petersburg, Florida, June 16, 2007.
