Ziad is a known saxophone instrumentalist in the Charlotte area. He has performed with numerous national acts, live and in the studio, including Soul Legend James Brown, Gospel icon John P. Kee, The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, Smooth Jazz Legend Grover Washington Jr. and many more. Ziad founded the band Mo' Money which performed regionally for many years. He released a smooth jazz CD nationally which received airplay across the U.S. as well. Currently he is performing in the corporate market with a trio and a duo. Ziad's versatile brand of instrumental performance can cater to any of your listening desires.

As a trio, Ziad is performing Smooth Jazz, R&B and Traditional Jazz with keyboards and drums for a full sound that can be geared to an upbeat higher energy performance or a lower volume laid back atmospheric experience. For a more unplugged trio sound the instrumentation is sax, piano and guitar. As a duo, sax and piano can provide a similar unplugged smooth sound. All of the above configurations can substitute a vocalist for drums or guitar if vocals are what you envision for your event. Lastly, Ziad can perform as a solo artist along with recorded tracks.

Ziad also performs as a duo consisting of acoustic guitar/vocal and saxophone with acoustic artist Rayen Belchere. Together they perform acoustic versions of a variety of classic rock and popular songs with either a chilled out feel for background atmosphere or a more high energy attitude for brighter paced events.
