Ask any DJ: She’s not called the Queen of House for nothin’. Zee Zandi’s been booking celebrity hosts and electronic dance music artists for more than 10 years in Vegas clubs and maintains an impressive list of clients. Just check her Tweets back and forth with notables such as @Alesso, @DJChrisLake and @ShaunPhillips95. The Wynn Resorts director of nightlife entertainment has been immersed in electronic music since she moved to Las Vegas 16 years ago. She became Vegas’ first female nightlife talent booker at Risque, working with DJs such as Richard Humpty Vission, then names like Sharam, Roger Sanchez and John Digweed at Jet Nightclub. Her position at Angel Management Group allowed her to hook Vegas up with killer lineups, most notably at Wet Republic, and The Joint’s first ever-electronic debut with Swedish House Mafia. She knows just how to balance business with pleasure, and her clients appreciate and love her for that. “Zee is simply amazing,” DJ/producer Max Vangeli says. “She thinks like an artist. Whenever we do a show with her there’s no doubt about the fact that it’s gonna be epic.”
