Carrie Zazzarino fell in love with music the first time she heard a Beatle album! She began The Carrie Zazz Band in 2017 to fulfill her life-long dream to play music. While her favorite genre of music is rock and roll, her earliest influences were classic country music artists, which is evident in her unique style and sound. Her true love of harmonies is evident in her song choices and it is no mistake that all members of the Band are strong vocalists, bringing the harmonies and songs to life.
The enjoyment of singing along with an audience, playing someone's "favorite song" and making people happy is a driving force behind her love of performing.
