The most incredible band!
We cannot say enough about the Original Moonlighters!!! Will, the manager was very attentive to email and communicating throughout the entire process. We ended up getting the 8 piece band, and it was money well spent! The band and singers are phenomenal! It was so much more like attending a concert, than a typical wedding band. They even learned our wedding song. If you are in to Motown, jazz or funk, this is the band for you! We loved how they were able to read the crowd and choose songs to get everyone up dancing. They even took requests. At one point, they even had all the ladies doing a choreographed dance to Rolling Down the River. The band truly went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having great time. Our guests are still talking about how awesome our band was. Thank you for making our wedding so special and unforgettable!!!Sent on 12/01/2019

Do You Remember...
the 21st night of September? Woooh! Me and Cody will be remembering that night for the rest of our lives, as will all our dancing guests. Our planner recommended the Original Moonlighters band, and it was the best decision we ever could've made. Dressed up all cute and handsome in their matching blue suits and bowties, from the very first note, the party was "on". Some folks were up dancing instead of eating their dinners even...and after they played a perfect "Let's Stay Together" for our first dance, nobody would leave the dance floor!!! Then they starting hitting on Bruno Mars, and totally brought the HOUSE DOWN, of course playing lots of Earth Wind and Fire to celebrate our special day...trust me when I say it: this band is LIT, and you need to hire them for your own wedding (if you want everyone dancing, that is).Sent on 11/10/2019

Our feet still hurt from dancing, lol!
Yes, they do!!! I've been to TONS of weddings with boring DJ music, so we decided to hire a live band covering all the classics and top 40 hits. But the Moonlighters pretty much know every song in the universe, so it was an easy decision. Pricing was reasonable, they took all our requests, and even personalized some songs with our names...now how cute is THAT??? But when they let our family members on stage, singing a couple songs with the band, it brought the whole house down!!! You guys totally rock, and we're already making plans to book you again for our family reunion next yr.Sent on 12/29/2018
