Mark Zauss & the Z Street Band is found on the top of vendor lists from Disney Fairy Tale Weddings to some of Orlando hottest venues. Reliable and experienced, they perform over 120 events annually, and have opened for Sting,Taylor Swift, as well as other celebrities and public figures. The Z Street Band was awarded Wedding Wire's 2013 Bride's Choice Award, and 2014's Couples Choice Award

This 3 to 8 piece wildly diverse band features band leader, trumpet player, and vocalist Mark Zauss and female vocalist Kathy Zauss along with the Z Street horns and percussion. Elegant and fun, the Z Street Band prides themselves on reading the crowd and keeping the dance floor packed, with music for all ages.

The Z Street Band's visual is "Vintage Romantic", complete with elegant band stands and state of the art stage lighting. Although their look is nosalgic, their playlist offers music for all ages, with hits spanning 70 years. Whether your taste is Sinatra, Bruno Mars, or The Black Eyed Peas, they cover it all. The Z Street Band combines creativity with today’s technology and innovation, allowing them to have a full and authentic sound true to the original artists. This very same state of the art technology is being used by most touring bands and name acts today, from Natalie Cole to Journey, U2, Coldplay and many more.

Their services include state of the art sound system, LED intelligent stage lighting, specialty dancefloor lighting with LED laser effects,(additional cost), million dollar liability insurance,(Which most venues require) microphone for toasts and announcements, and complete DJ services between sets. They also welcome your Ipod play lists in between sets as well.

Mark is present on every event along with Kathy and the rest of the band, and never sends out a duplicate band in their place. They never "Subcontract" the band. There is only one Z Street Band,so you can rest assured you will get the personal attention you deserve, from the initial planning stages until the last note is played . Marks company, Band Source Productions, Inc. carries multi million dollar liability insurance which most venues require. Mark is experienced as an Emcee. Wedding receptions are his specialty, and he coordinates with your wedding planner, caterer, photographer and videographer throughout the evening to ensure no photo opportunities or customs are missed.

The Z Street Band is not a talent agency which means no extra agent fees, and no middle man. Marks company, Band Source Productions, Inc. carries multi million dollar liability insurance which most venues require.

Hello,
I recently celebrated my wedding at Loews Portofino Bay Resort and had the pleasure of working with the Z Street Band. The evening was magical and everything was absolutely PERFECT. Mark was wonderful to work with and they set the tone wonderfully for the evening. I booked cocktail hour with their saxophone player which was a fantastic extra when the guests arrived and settled in. When my new husband and I arrived to the reception area, they introduced us perfectly and we went right into the first dance. My parents were celebrating a 40th wedding anniversary and my husbands were celebrating 50 years. We asked the band to please invite our parents to join us on the dance floor in honor of their anniversaries. Mark inviting them to join us clearly and quickly and it was an amazing dedication. The music was very mellow and romantic during dinner which is exactly what I wanted. They changed the tempo as the guests began moving around the reception area and indulging in cocktails. The evening moved to a more fun rhythm as the time progressed. With each hour, the band really seemed to read the mood of the crowd and changed the music tempo to match each temperament. At the end of the evening, all the guests started screaming “one more song, one more song,” and the band gave us exactly what we asked for. During the speeches, they professional and invited guests up gracefully. We had an ice-cream station and photo booth…both of which were mentioned to guests as “open” from the band…they really alerted everyone to what was going on in reception area…..which was awesome.
Our departure was through fireworks and the band bowed out gracefully. They also wore tuxes and Kathy was GORGEOUS in her gown which fit right in with my décor as it was black tie event.
If I could do it all over again, I would literally not change one thing about working with the Z Street Band. They made the evening a success and I could not recommend them enough. INCREDIBLE!!!

Mark Zauss and the Z Street Wedding Band did an excellent job. They truly made a significant contribution to the wedding being a perfect event. Their performance in all categories exceeded the most hoped for expectation. As the father of the bride, I found Mark to be a professional in all aspects and provided much needed guidance from the beginning of the process through the final moment of the reception. Mark and his band deserve a 5.0 plus rating. Please feel free to call me on my cell phone at 407-256-3842 for a recommendation. David Conway

Mark and the band were absolutely great !!!!! You cant meet and talk to Mark and not immediately like him!! We met him with our wedding planner Brandee Gaar and we booked him right away. What a great decision it turned out to be ! The Z street band kept the dance floor packed the entire night ! It was a perfect mix of music throughout cocktail hour( where he played the sax), Dinner, and of course the reception, which is exactly what we wanted. We chose a band over a DJ for this very reason.. we wanted someone who would play for the parents and songs they knew and loved as well as our friends. Mission accomplished ! We are so glad we chose them to be part of our day and would recommend them to anyone. Our guests LOVED the entire night and put the flip flops we provided to good use.

Hi Mark, I want to thank you and Kathy and the entire Z Street Band for making my wedding day one to remember! The band was such a hit at our wedding reception and had people dancing on the floor from the very beginning and they never left! Many commented to me that they were mesmorized by your skill on the trumpet and asked who you were so they could remember you for their special events. You also were so great about adding in all of the specialty songs that we asked for like "Love Boat" at our bridal party entrance! Thank you, thank you for another job well done! A big thank you as well for traveling all the way from Orlando to our destination wedding in Ft Lauderdale!

Thanks to Mark and Kathy Zauss and the Z Street Band for performing at my daughter’s wedding. You were exactly what my daughter wanted for her reception and everyone commented about how fabulous you looked and sounded. Your band sounded even better live than on the demo recordings. I had no idea everyone would dance so much and we even had to keep you for an extra hour. I appreciate you being so accommodating of all the details and changes we had. You helped make my daughter’s wedding night the best night of her life. We are eternally grateful to you and the Z Street Band. Thank you. Mother of the Bride, Emily D.
