    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).

    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.
