Our members are fully qualified in live and studio playing and have travelled the world, producing, arranging, writing and playing for themselves and others.
‘The Zealots are an excellent function band made up of incredibly gifted musicians, who really made my 30th Birthday Party a night to remember. They were very helpful with any questions I had running up to the event and were prompt in responding. The party was made personal as The Zealots carefully planned their set list around songs in their repertoire I liked in particular. They also learnt a number of requests; this made my Birthday incredibly special. The Zealots are awesome! They had people of all ages on the dance floor from start to finish. What a night! My guests were all so complimentary about the band. They bring the funk to any party and seamlessly move between older and new tunes with a whole lotta soul! This band do not disappoint!’
‘You guys were awesome. I name thee chief of funky town. Really kicked off the party brilliantly and got people of all ages up and dancing (before the DJ we hired got us sitting down again). Everyone was enormously complimentary to the Zealots and you guys created the atmosphere for one of the most memorable nights of my life.’
‘Thank you so much for Saturday evening; everyone thought the band was great! So many people have thanked us for a lovely party and without fail each person has said, ” what a super band, they were so good”. They loved the music, the singer’s voice, everything. So I think you were a hit!’
‘I had them at my wedding and have danced to their soulful jams at just about all of my friends weddings, not once have I seen the crowd stop moving, young and old alike. They’re worth booking just to hear them play Candy, let alone the plethora of other tunes in their repertoire.’
‘A big THANK YOU for both the band and the DJ on Saturday night. We had the best time and sore feet after all the dancing.
You really hit the spot with the music and everyone was complimenting how good the lead singer of the band was!!
Once again, thank you for making our special day unforgettable!’
‘Wow what a night, a truly unbelievable and amazing performance from The Zealots. We can’t thank the band enough for their efforts at our wedding and with the DJ sets in between the bands’, it proved a seamless and worry free evening on our special day. To have every guest on the dance floor when the band was up speaks volumes and the rendition of our first dance song will always make it such a special moment. Thank you so much guys.’
