Awesome job Sounds Elevated!
I am a wedding planner in Tahoe and highly recommend hiring Sounds Elevated! They provided a live jazz trio for the wedding ceremony and DJ Ian McDonald for the reception who kept everyone dancing to funky music all night and was awesome to work with. Sounds Elevated is extremely professional, very accommodating to the guests and takes any stress away from us as we trust them and their services 100%. We look forward to working with Ian and Sounds Elevated again soon!Sent on 05/17/2021

Best DJ Live Combo + Photo Booth
Ok, Zeb and Lindsey KILLED IT! I came across their profile on an instagram hashtag and SO grateful I found them. My husband loves music and we decided that we did want to make sure our DJ and vibes fit us as a couple. I love to dance and Jared loves the art of music, so we were so happy that we found a DJ-Live Music Combo. Zeb as a DJ by himself is seriously amazing, and then when you get to add live drums or a saxophone, it is GAME OVER! Our guests had such an amazing time dancing and I loved his emceeing, it wasn't the cheesy wedding style but just totally read the vibes of the dance floor, us as a couple and mixed in what we requested and what we were all feeling. What we appreciated the most is that he also was able to play live acoustic for our ceremony. Jared loves playing the guitar so having live music for our ceremony was perfection. He was able to play Harvest Moon and Here Comes the Sun, then transitioned perfectly for cocktail hour with our hipster cocktail vibes then to getting down on the dance floor! The Photo Booth was also so much fun, Lindsey did a great job asking what I wanted my photo strip to look like and manned the booth for us. Our pictures were delivered to us immediately. Both of them were so easy to work with! If you don't just want a DJ and want to level up with options of live instrumentals, plus a Photo Booth, this is your packaged deal! OH and Zeb took some awesome sunset photos for us. Couldn't have asked for a better music choice. Thank you so much for making our big day so memorable!Sent on 10/18/2020

Zeb will make your wedding!
I own and operate a wedding venue in the Tahoe area and have worked with Zeb from Sounds Elevated multiple times in recent years. Zeb is among the most professional vendors I have had the pleasure of working with and surpass my clients' expectation every single time. What's unique about Zeb, unlike the many other DJs we've worked with, is that Zeb is an accomplished musician and original DJ. He not only can play live music for the ceremony and cocktail hour, but can also mix and create one-of-a-kind songs and beats during the dancing hours. No song is every the same and he gets guests dancing more than any other DJ I've worked with. He's exceptional. Simply put. You'd make a mistake not to hire him.Sent on 11/02/2020
Zeb is awesome! Worked with him at a wedding in Tahoe. Not only is a fantastic DJ but he is an uber talented musician as well. Played the guitar while the wedding party walked down the aisle it was beautiful!!
I had the opportunity to work with Zeb on the wedding of a lifetime in May, and he KILLED it! There were multiple days and parts to this celebration and he read the crowd perfectly. He created an atmosphere that everyone wanted to be part of. On the first night, we were supposed to end at 12am and he kept the party going well past 1:00am. No one wanted to leave the dance floor! On the night of the wedding, the dance floor was wall to wall people. Everyone was having the time of their lives. Zeb is a true professional, and he has mastered his role in events. I hope to be on the same team with him in the near future!
Zeb of Sounds Elevated is the best wedding DJ we've heard out of over 100 of them. He was the DJ / "sound guy" for the ceremony and reception at a wedding we photographed in Elk, CA in fall 2016, and here's what we observed: He really knows what people want to dance to. He didn't just crank out the top 40. He knew what was current and good to dance to while also mixing in a lot of the classics, without getting too cheesy or making you feel like you were at a late 90s Bar Mitzvah. And he actually mixed all of the music, seamlessly blending from one song to the next; there was never an awkward pause. You know he was playing all the right music because the age on the dance floor ranged from grandma and grandpa to crawling babies. Again, super current, danceable music without getting awkward or raunchy (which is awkward at a wedding). Besides the dance floor in the barn, Zeb also ran the sound for the 125 person ceremony, which was on top of a foggy California coastal hillside. His set up was clean and professional and sounded great! There were no mic errors / loud screechy cover your ears type of moments... and we've heard plenty of those right in the middle of a ceremony! His over all presence was friendly and professional and really just spot on. We ended up photographing later than we were scheduled for partly because the music was that good (and everyone was still dancing because of that)! We now only recommend Sounds Elevated to our clients (:
