About Carrie and Ariana
Carrie Zazzarino fell in love with music the first time she heard a Beatle album! She has been playing music ever since and has played locally for a number of years with a variety of musicians. Her true love of harmonies lands her with the Carrie Zazz Band today. The enjoyment of singing along with an audience, playing someone's "favorite song" and making people happy makes her love of music stronger than ever. Her musical influences are The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Yes.
Ariana has had a love of music and playing guitar since those beloved "tween" years! Fast forward--whew--she has played at venues including The Town Crier (making Open Mic Finals), Howland Art Center and the Folk Guild Coffeehouse. She was also in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar at County Players. She is thrilled now to be a part of The Carrie Zazz Band! She is grateful to be able to share her love of singing, guitar and harmonies with people. She thanks the people and places that have welcomed The Carrie Zazz band!
