Zak Shepherd - Acoustic Guitarist / Vocalist - Melbourne, Victoria Event Location: Hawthorn Event Type: Private Party 17th February 2024
Zak was great - organised, flexible and sang beautifully for the vibe we wanted early in the party and then moved into a DJ set to get the dance floor going. Thanks Zak!

Zak was such a lifesaver for us. We needed a last-minute acoustic musician for our canapés and wedding reception, and boy did he deliver. Nothing but professionalism by Zak, came dressed for the occasion and matched the vibe of exactly what we were looking for. Not only was his singing fantastic, but he also took a few requests from our guests with a smile and a great attitude. You really impressed us, Zak, and saved the day! I would highly recommend Zak, he's super easy to work with and does a wonderful job.

What an awesome party! A big thanks to Zak for creating fun atmosphere that made for a great night. He played a bunch of classics on his acoustic guitar and even entertained my mates who requested songs. A special note on his rendition of Roxanne by the Police, I thoroughly enjoyed it! After his 2 acoustic sets he kicked the energy up a notch with his DJ decks. He has a great energy and really got everyone to let loose on the dance floor. On a professional note, I couldn't have been happier with his communication and performance. I highly recommend Zak for any private party and will use him again in future!! Great value.
