The Moonlighters were booked for our Corporate Holiday Party and they were absolutley wonderful! Going into our party, it was not expected that our employee's would likely get-up and dance..well, less than a quarter of the way through the evening, the dance floor was full and it stayed that way until the end of the night. All members of the band were professional and very accomodating, to our selection of music and in taking our requests on the fly. It's days later and I am still receiving emails about how great the band was. I highly recommend them as the perfect choice for top-notch entertainment for any event. We expect to hire them again for our party next year!

The Moonlighters were the perfect band for our wedding. From the ceremony, to the cocktail hour to the reception, their song selections and energy level were perfectly matched for the mood we were trying to set. They are incredibly talented musicians and entertainers and they managed to get all 150 people at our wedding up and dancing the entire night. Many of our guests have commented on how fantastic the band was and several guests expressed interest in booking them for other events. I would recommend them to anybody, without hesitation. Thanks to the whole band for making our wedding such a fabulous event!!!
