Zak at Hang Out
November 06, 2006

Back in Lebanon, I was a big fan of live bands, whether domestic or foreign. Whenever I hear some band is playing somewhere, I was sure to go. Except when it was death metal bands :P That was simply just noise. Always been a fan of how musical instruments work and love watching the musicians play. So last night we head to Hang Out to listen to Zak sing while playing his guitar. He is a talented soloist player and has a pretty good voice; the sound system installed is high quality and the voice is distributed all over the place in a non-annoying way. Among the songs he played my most favorite I should say was Zombie followed by Hotel California, with which he ended the night. He played from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Usually there would be a bigger audience but for some reason there were maximum 20 people, of which 10 were on our table. Regardless, I would recommend you to listen to him play. Not only is he talented with the guitar, at the end of the night he passes by every table, sits with the peope, and gets to know them. He usually plays every Sunday there but I think its every other Sunday now. Enjoy!!

    Zak is an amazing guy! I went to high school with him! I don't know if he still plays at Astra or not but he used to do both Astra Lounge and Hang Out!
    Back in the day he was in a band and I think they put an album! You might want to ask him!

    Zak is a talented guy! We once hired him for a friend's birthday party and he literally made us all sing Hotel California when we were sitting at the dinner table

    I for one know first hand of the amazing musical talent Zak posesses. He is a wonderful musician, and and even better writer. I have been in his home in the States and in Q8, and have seen him sit and play on his own or for entertainment of close friends for hours. He is very dedicated to music, as he should be. The world needs more musicians with the heart that Zak has. I wish him all of the best, and I am more than excited that people are starting to hear him for the God-given talent that he has.

    Lux. He seems to be as great a friend as he is a musician. Unfortunately, not many in Kuwait appreciate such talents, but for those that do enjoy live talented musicians, be sure he got the attention of all of them and everybody loves his style. As u said, he is dedicated to music and plays it with a passion and that alone makes u respect what he stands for. Cheers man!
