$750 - $4000 per event
The Moonlighters range in size from 4 to 20 pieces. We perform music for dances, formal galas, corporate events, community functions and street fairs, wedding ceremonies and receptions and more! We present a high energy or quiet and sophisticated atmosphere depending on your special event. With over 3,000 songs in our repertoire, we play "simply the best variety of swing, beach, oldies rock, ballroom and cotillion dances, Motown and more". We are NOT your typical big band.

In addition to the swing big band, The Moonlighters Orchestra franchise also offers two groups that are very popular. Quarter Moon is our jazz quartet specializing in playing and singing classic jazz as well as vocal standards. This group is great for cocktail hours and intimate settings. Also we can provide our popular wedding/corporate event band known as Carolina Moondogs. This is a great dance band perfect for your special event. Based on the style of the great horn bands such as Blood, Sweat and Tears, Chicago, Tower of Power and others, this group gets guests on the dance floor with a wide variety of music including Motown, R&B, Oldies, Swing, Beach and original compositions. A great horn section, rocking rhythm section and great vocalists make this fun group a must for parties.

The Moonlighters Orchestra promises you an unforgettable evening. Long after the food is forgotten, the decorations have been packed away, and the flowers have wilted...your guests will always remember live music!

The Moonlighters Orchestra was a wonderful addition to our wedding day! They really went above and beyond our expectations by accommodating several special requests with no hesitation or reservation. They were very good at adjusting to the mood of the party and served a duel role as announcer at our reception as well. Terry Blalock, the band's point of contact was very helpful and responsive by both phone and email and a delight to work with. He made multiple trips to our site so the band's set-up on the actual day was flawless. We are so grateful to the effort the whole band put in to making this a stress-free day for us! This group earns our highest recommendation.

We asked for a sax but they weren't able to provide one. They told me this after we had paid downpayment for a trio. I asked for no vocals, trumpet player sang during dinner. The trio was supposed to take 2, 10 min breaks. One break was so long that two people in our wedding party checked to see when they would start again. I (the bride) finally went into the other room where they were eating cheeseburgers (we provided a meal but they could have eaten after or faster) and asked them to play (now, please) because the main course was being served. They didn't play the songs I sent in a request list via email. Communication was mediocre throughout the experience.
