Hire Us

Contact us by email: tom@tomzap.com. We would love to play at your party or venue and will do so at a price you can afford. We do not use instrument amplifiers and we use electronic drums so we are capable of playing at either very low or high volumes, and we are only 3 or 4 people so we don't need much room.
