  • The Moonlighters absolutely made our wedding the most amazing night of our lives. ALL of our guests were dancing the entire night, and they all raved about how amazing the band sang/played/danced. Not a single person was sitting once the music got started. The band had the most incredible energy, and as the bride, made me feel like they were singing all of their songs just for me. Literally ... they played every song I requested, kept the music on schedule, and most importantly, kept everyone dancing. They ended the night with such a great energy, no one wanted to leave! We are SO HAPPY they were available for our wedding ... thank you Vance and the Moonlighters for making our wedding so much fun. We wish you the best, and please don't ever stop playing!

  • Cannot say enough about how amazing The Original Moonlighters were at my wedding! We had 190 people at the wedding and as soon as dinner was over everyone was up and dancing for the entire reception. We had the 9-piece band and highly recommend them. We were thrilled with how many genres they could cover from oldies to Motown, pop, funk, rock, etc. Their musicians handled cocktail hour with a solo keyboardist and a dinner jazz trio as well. It could not have been easier working with the band as they were always accessible by phone and email. My wife and I could not be happier with the band, don’t hesitate to book them! Thanks to The Original Moonlighters for making our day that much more special.

  • The "Original" Moonlighters made our wedding 'party' come alive!!! D.J.'s can be great, but you can't beat a LIVE band to keep your guests on the dance floor. The "Original" Moonlighters have a massive playlist- from oldies to UpTown Funk!! Your guests of all ages will be WOW'd. They also handle all of your D.J. needs and are very flexible. Thanks from a VERY satisfied M.O.B.

  • Trust me, you want to book this band! We were a bit nervous about the band for our wedding just because we had booked them without ever having heard them play - always a bit of a risk. We had absolutely NOTHING to worry about. The Original Moonlighters had everyone on the dance floor all night long! They were engaging, fun, not to mention they sound incredible. If you're looking for a classic wedding band that plays all the best songs, this is absolutely the place to go. We would do it all again in a heartbeat! It was the perfect vibe for our reception - book them now!

  • The original moonlighters played at my wedding in September and they were amazing. I was a little nervous as I never heard them in person and picked them based on wedding wire reviews but I was not disappointed. They got everyone on the dance floor and made the wedding so fun. Will their manager was also really great to coordinate with, being extremely responsive prior to the date. Highly recommend!!!

  • The agent and all band members showed the highest degree of professionalism. Our guests were totally in love with this group and the variety of music they could play. But most important, my daughter--"THE BRIDE"--could not have been happier after it was all over that we had selected "The Original Moonlighters" for her wedding. We are still getting comments from our guest on how much they loved this band. Thanks to all the band members who helped make my daughter's wedding a remarkable day.

  • The "Original" Moonlighters were fabulous. The music during dinner was very elegant and did not compete with the conversation. Then they revved it up with the dancing - the floor was full all night. Great fun!!

  • The Original Moonlighters provided an amazing performance for our wedding reception at Ceresville Mansion. Vance and his band were exceptional and performed a wide variety of selections. Every guest was out on the dance floor and days later talked about the wonderful performance by the band. We would highly recommend the Original Moonlighters for a wedding reception or any event. They were extremely professional and a lot of fun!

  • You can stop your search for a professional, rocking, get-'em-up-and-dancing band right now. The Moonlighters were sensational. They exceeded our expectations and kept the party going until the absolute end. Nearly everyone stayed until the final note. I can't say enough!

  • WOW! We were beyond thrilled with the quality and sound of the Moonlighters at our wedding. They were professional, extremely talented, and had everyone raving about what a great band they were. We are so glad that we hired them as our band and have great memories of our evening and they were a big part of it!

  • The moonlighters were a fabulous addition to our wedding. The music was so fun that it really made the night. So many guests raved about the band. They even learned our college fight song and mixed it into a medley of songs. It was awesome. They were also very easy to work with and very professional on the day of. The only negative that I can say is that they did not end up playing all of our requested list (no Shout?!). Perhaps our list was too long, but that would have been good to know so we could have prioritized. You should definitely hire the Moonlighters for your next event, just be sure you get on the same page about the playlist before the event.

  • DON'T HESITATE! The Original Moonlighters were the BEST wedding band!!! We wanted a good variety of songs that kept everyone dancing all night, and they delivered and then some! Their musical talent was awesome, and the playlist couldn't have been better. They were also ready to roll with the punches when unplanned things occurred, like an over-served groomsman jumping on stage and being the lead singer for an entire song, or when they broke into an impromptu version of "The Stars at Night" on the trumpet for our guests, half of whom were from Texas. They were absolutely incredible and just MADE our reception. The dinner music they played was classy and made us feel like we were at the most chic of events, and the dance music after dinner was just so much fun. They are laid back, easy to work with and receptive to ideas. They're great at MCing the event, as well, and keeping a good flow throughout the evening for things like the cake cutting, first dance, intros, bouquet toss, s... Read more

  • I'm a professional musician. So is my wife. And our families. We've been playing music all our lives. Picky is an understatement, and we must've screened at least 30 bands until we found The Moonlighters. Unlike most others out there these days, they actually play their music live. Why spend the money on an actual band if they're just sequencing everything and laying vocals on top??? Plus, these guys actually read an audience, take requests and interact. There's nothing fake/canned about their performance. It's exactly what we were looking for, and we recommend them without any hesitation.
