Letizia and the Z Band is the quintessential band for any type of wedding reception. They have been based out of Syracuse for 18 years, but, play private functions all over the Northeast.
From the standards of the 40's, to the rock and roll of the 50's, to Motown, to the disco 70's, to the techno 90's, and today, there is music for all tastes and ages. After all, we understand that a wedding reception is a celebration for everyone in attendance, and we make sure everyone is able to participate in that celebration. Our goal is to make your reception an unforgettable, lasting experience for you and your guests.
If you are looking for HORNS, Letizia and the Z Band has an "in house" horn section. Letizia plays trumpet, and Mark, our guitar player, plays alto and tenor saxophone.
Because we understand how important the music is at your reception, Letizia will sit down with you before your special day, and customize the music to your individual tastes.
On the day of your reception, Letizia will line up the Grand Parents, Parents, and all of the wedding party, and will announce your wedding party as they enter the reception room.
Letizia will also make sure that the whole reception runs as smoothly as possible, coordinating events with the room, so that you don't have to.
Letizia and the Z Band will provide recorded music on CD while on breaks so that the music never stops. The music can be on your mp3 player, or, on CD that either you or the band provides.
We will continue CD music after the completion of the Band's performance for as long as the room will allow.
We will gladly take requests from our repertoire prior to the reception, or, you can leave the music choices completely up to us. We will also try to accommodate as many of your guest's requests during the performance.
We are happy to learn your FIRST DANCE, FATHER/DAUGHTER DANCE, and MOTHER/GROOM DANCE. We just ask that a copy of each song be given to us at least TWO months in advance.
Letizia and the Z Band will provide state-of-the-art, professional sound and lighting to ensure clear sound at an acceptable volume.
Once all the details are taken care of, you can sit back, and enjoy your celebration, because Letizia and the Z Band will take care of everything else, from the announcement of the wedding party to the last song played!
But that's where it ends, where it begins is at your wedding ceremony. Letizia is available to perform as a soloist accompanying herself on the piano, at either your ceremony, cocktail reception, or both for an additional fee Letizia and the Z Band can take care of all your musical needs on one of the most special days of your lives.

Letizia and the Z Band did an amazing job! They were professional, friendly but most importantly they cared deeply for the "cause" they were playing for. They did everything to help make our Non-Profit event a huge success! Remarkable group of people who we highly recommend~

I hired Letizia & the Z Band to entertain at my wedding. They were nothing short of professional, entertaining & wonderful. They kept the dance floor alive & packed all night.. so much that we got them to stay an extra hour to keep the party going! Thanks for contributing to our wedding memories!
Letiza is a remarkably talented musician and performer! She has also surrounded herself with some equally talented musicians in “Z-Band”. I am also quite blessed to call her my Friend. ?
