Why would anyone remember June 12, 1994? Well, that’s the day of the famous O.J. Simpson slow-speed chase. It was also the day of The Zoo’s very first live engagement and they’ve been running at high-speed ever since. Their skyrocketing popularity has been highlighted by an appearance on TRL (Total Request Live) hosted by Carson Daly, as well as appearances on MTV’s Ultimate Cover Band contest, the latter of which culminated in The Zoo reaching the prize winners’ platform.
The Zoo, long a nightclub favorite, has become increasingly popular on the corporate and private event circuit. The New York Islanders have been fans of the band for years and The Zoo has not only performed for the New York Islander organization, but was even chosen to perform at the National Hockey League’s “Winter Classic” at Fenway Park in Boston.
The Zoo is a band that’s always on the go and never afraid to travel. The band has performed at destination weddings from Cape Cod to Miami and nightclubs from the deserts of Las Vegas to the ski slopes of Vermont.
The Zoo is one versatile band. This is a group that is just as comfortable performing at a posh gala as they are performing in front of a raucous beach crowd. Nobody knows how to keep a party going like front man and founding member, Randall John. He and female lead vocalist Ginger DeVito front this powerhouse of a band. Randy has kept the line-up youthful over the years and the current line-up is perhaps the freshest and hottest yet.
A VISIT TO THE ZOO HAS NEVER BEEN SO MUCH FUN!!

Dear Randall, This is the perfect time of year to reach out and say thank you. The first time I heard the name THE ZOO, was after Elizabeth saw you perform at a Teamsters event for Autism - you were just great. It was her that said we just had to get you for the wedding, and she was dead right. You were terrific, beyond all expectations. It was NOT an easy crowd, but you won everyone over. You went beyond the beyond and it was greatly appreciated. If you ever need a reccommendation don't hesitate to call Elizabeth or me. thank you again, and we hope all is well with you! All the best, George Reagan
Our company hired The Zoo to play at our employee holiday party on Long Island a couple of weeks ago and let me just say they absolutely blew the roof off of the place!! Even as they were performing people kept coming up to me telling me how amazing they were and asking me for their information so they can book The Zoo at their next event. The booking agent Barbara Klein made the entire experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. Our company has been doing this holiday event for more than two decades and the entertainment that was provided this year was beyond anything we previously had. I highly recommend booking The Zoo for your next event, you will not be disappointed! 12/11/21
My wife Ashley and I had the Zoo play at our wedding on November 27th, 2021 in NJ. These guys CRUSHED it. It was like we were at a live concert. I think at one point our whole 180 person wedding was on the dance floor. These guys are a great cover band, and even learned our wedding song to play live with a 2 week notice! If your looking to bring your event to LIFE this is the band to do it. They truly know how to get the party started and keep it going the WHOLE night! Awesome experience would definitely have them play another event.
5 star rating posted 10/25/2021 Amazing experience! We had The Zoo play our wedding in October 2021 and worked with Barbara at Omnipop. Everything was fantastic from start to finish. Barbara was on top of everything and the booking process was extremely smooth and easy. The band was absolutely phenomenal. Every guest at our wedding commented how they loved the band. They cover all genres flawlessly and a couple guests even asked me if they played a recording of the actual song for some songs because they sound that good. My wife and I met at a concert so having a great band at our wedding was very important to us, and they exceeded expectations. If you want a band for your wedding that will keep the party rockin from beginning to end then you need to book The Zoo with Barbara at Omnipop! You will not be disappointed.
Barbara was amazing to work with. She is accessible, professional, attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her while planning our wedding. We worked directly with her to coordinate all details when we hired THE ZOO to perform at our wedding. There really isn't enough space to describe how happy we were with our music choice and how easy Barbara made everything. Our friends and family won't stop talking about how great THE ZOO was! They have our full support and recommendation for ANYONE considering hiring them for an event.
Last Saturday we had The Zoo perform at our wedding. Not only did they kill it, but the whole process of booking them was enjoyable. Barbara (Omnipop) and Randy were the MOST courteous and attentive people to work with they listened to our vision and turned it into a reality. We decided to forgo a videographer to free up room in our budget because we could either have a video of a mediocre wedding or memories of an EPIC one, and they did NOT disappoint. Our guests and vendors were ALL blown away by their performance, and they had a large role in helping our wedding be everything we've dreamed of and more. We could not recommend them more if any of you are on the fence about booking, below are some pictures to show just how magical the night was!
We originally saw The Zoo at a friend's wedding a couple of years ago. We had so much fun that night that I took their card and contacted them when I was planning my own wedding… The Zoo are professional, fun, and know how to keep the party going. Our dance floor was full the entire night--and by people of all ages. They played a mix of oldies and classics (like Dion's "Runaround Sue" and Tom Petty's "American Girl") all the way up to current music (like Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" and Megan Trainor's "It's All About the Bass")--and sounded like the artist they were covering. We had so much fun with The Zoo and highly recommend them for your reception.
Where do I begin? My husband and I had The Zoo Band play at our wedding this August. We knew we needed The Zoo from the start. We've seen them countless times before and know they are nothing less than AMAZING! To get The Zoo to play at our wedding we had to go through Barbara Klein. What an amazing woman. She's sweet, professional, and quick to respond if you need her in a pinch. For a bride, she made me feel comfortable and we shared many conversations that were just pleasant. I cannot recommend The Zoo and Barbara enough. If you're looking to book the most unbelievable band for your wedding or special occasion and want everything to run smoothly- TRUST Barbara at Omnipop!!!
We can’t thank you enough for giving us the perfect wedding with the perfect band and music. You were everything we wanted and more. Everyone raved about you! They are still talking about our awesome band! The whole room was dancing – which is what we wanted – and we have you to thank! You guys were awesome! Thank You!
My family and all of our friends would like to express our gratitude for participating with 100% effort in making Kathleen and Josh’s wedding a day to remember. Many people have indicated that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The Zoo certainly was a key reason
We wanted to thank all of you so much for making our wedding so amazing! Four months later, we still have friends talking about what an awesome band we had. You gave an energy to the entire night we’ve never seen with any other “wedding band”. And we really appreciated the time you took to learn our song (to our surprise!) and that you paid close attention to the request list we made – I felt like every song you played we had pre-selected. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We look forward to seeing you play again in Danbury!
Thank you so much for making our wedding such a success. You guys were perfect! Thanks also for letting the groom have his 15 minutes of fame in the American Idol Tryouts 🙂 Thank you Again.
Thank you for our amazing wedding music…and so much more!! You Guys Rock
