    Simply Superb!

    We love everything about The “Original” Moonlighters - their incredible talent, sound, energy, and song selection will wow your guests and make your event memorable!! They worked with us in advance on the Bride’s surprise song for her Groom. The band kept the energy high and fun from the very beginning of our reception, and they continued to wow everyone throughout the evening. Our guests packed the dance floor throughout the night, and everyone loved the music and the band. We have continued to receive compliments on the band, several days after the wedding.

    OMG! Where do I begin? Everyone was so nice and accommodating before, during and even after our wedding day. Manager, bandleader, and musicians were totally on point. I wish all my other vendors were this awesome. We had some venue and timing issues, but they didn't miss a beat, handling all the last-minute changes with big smiles on their faces, making the day much less stressful. Learning special songs, making announcements, even having my brother sit in with them on drums...no problemo! AND keeping our guests dancing all night long: 20 year-olds, 30/40-somethings and even the 70 year-olds were totally getting down!!!
