About The "Original" Moonlighters ®

Since 1990, The Moonlighters ® have been performing throughout the United States as one of the country's best-loved and most authentic Motown and variety bands. Averaging over one hundred appearances per year, we offer affordable quality, specializing in weddings, corporate functions, private parties, festivals and concert appearances, with an emphasis on strong, soulful vocals and solid instrumentation.

Just close your eyes and you'll swear the original artists are performing. But don't close them for too long or you won't be able to enjoy our outstanding dance moves and showmanship. Famous for getting guests out on the dance floor and more importantly, for keeping them there, The Moonlighters ® are experts at reading the crowd and gladly take requests, making our performances highly entertaining and interactive as audiences just feed off the band's energy and vice versa.

We can also be booked in several different combinations to fit any budget and venue from just two or three musicians to as many as ten or twelve, including one of the tightest horn sections in the country and some of the finest male and female vocalists anywhere. Meticulously-groomed and costumed, whether it's for ceremony, cocktail or dinner music, a casual outdoor reception or a classy black-tie affair, The Moonlighters ® have a show custom-tailored to best suit any theme.

Featuring HUNDREDS of songs in a wide variety of styles, we do it all very well. Critically-acclaimed, we have performed an unprecedented seven times at The Kennedy Center, for countless political and business leaders, at various foreign embassies, and other prestigious venues, covering well over a dozen different states, including: DC, MD, VA, WV, DE, PA, NJ, NY, KY, TN, OH, IL, ID, NC, SC, GA, FL, UT, and MT.

As seen again and again in our many rave reviews, thousands of appreciative listeners and hundreds of satisfied talent buyers all agree, The Moonlighters ® are dedicated, professionals truly committed to making each and every show an event to remember. But of course, we're in heavy demand with a schedule that always fills up fast, so don't delay…please contact us today!

    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!!!
