Our Client Reviews
“The Moonlighters were booked for our Corporate Holiday Party and they were absolutely 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 accommodating, 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!!!”
– Amy C.
“The Moonlighters were a great addition to our Christmas party and adjusted very well to a small and crowded room. Great sound from a small group and they were all very willing to accommodate the needs of their audience. Many compliments were given to the party planner in their behalf. It is obvious they enjoy what they do - it comes out in their music. They was jammin' and we was jammin' right along. Good Job!”
– Paul P.
“The Moonlighters were wonderful - exactly the sort of band we were looking to find for our wedding! Many of our guests came up to us to tell us how great the band was. They added a vocalist at the last minute so that they would be able to play specific songs I requested and had the whole floor filled with people dancing. Everyone enjoyed them so much. Thank you!”
– Laurie C.

“The Moonlighters did an excellent job for my wife's Surprise 50th Birthday party. They performed an excellent blend of Motown / Funk & Soul and practically everyone at the party came up to me and said "Great Band, where did you find them?". They made the party a very special and memorable event and I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.”
– Clark C.

“We hired the Moonlighters for our Valentine's Day wedding and we got lots of compliments about the band! They even let my brother play bass with them, which was a really lovely way to involve him on my special day!”
– Sabra G.
“The band was fantastic!! I fully enjoyed their performance and received positive feedback on them from many who attended my reception. I would use them again and totally recommend them to others. The Moonlighter's helped to make our wedding reception special and memorable!!”
– Kristen H.
“Where to start? EVERYONE who attended the reception was simply in AWE and kept asking where I found this band! The band and singers performed flawlessly and were very professional. There were so many people dancing at times that there wasn't any space left on the dance floor to accommodate any more! All vocalist were amazing, but the lead female singer literally blew everyone away. The band played right up until the last people were left at the reception and remained as professional and energetic as from the start of their performance. Very eager to please, very professional, and very friendly people! I recommend them without hesitation. Thanks Moonlighters!”
– Scott F.
“This was our 40th Autumn Glory Festival kick-off dinner. The band kept playing, the crowd kept dancing and we had the most positive feedback ever on the entertainment for the kick off dinner.”
– Cherie R.
“The Moonlighters simply ROCKED. Our crowd was up and dancing BEFORE they served dinner. They met all of our needs and played the songs in the right order and at the correct times. Towards the end of the evening, they played Sweet Home Alabama right on cue. It brought the house down! Our guests were amazed at their performance and we're still receiving great feedback from people weeks later. The Moonlighters took our wedding to the next level. I would suggest them to anyone. William Goldman and the band are top-notch professionals. We'll use them again. Best, Amos and Whitney Snead (Washington, D.C.)”
– Amos S.
“The Moonlighters were fantastic, as always. This was a major open house for an estate in Baltimore County. They were extremely professional and sounded great. The Moonlighters certainly made this a distinct, memorable function.”
– Lindsay B.
“These guys fit the bill perfectly for our Spring Fraternity Formal. Every suggestion/recommendation we had for them, they followed to a T, and they kept people on the dancefloor constantly. We gave them a direction to go in, as far as the setlist, and they took it from there, and we were not disappointed. These guys were some very talented musicians that played with a lot of soul, and if that is what you are looking for, then by all means book this band right now. The Moonlighters are highly recommended!”
– Andrew H.
“The Moonlighters were simply fantastic! They showed up early to ensure they were completely set and ready to go at the appointed hour. They were extremely professional and very accommodating to my guests' requests. I will most definitely use them for my future parties and highly recommend them!!”
– Don H.
“We had an outstanding experience with the Moonlighters and I highly recommend them for anyone's wedding or big event. From the first time we talked to their contact, William, 9 months ago until the end of the wedding, we couldn't have been more pleased with the professional, friendly, and accommodating service we received. The Moonlighters were a huge hit and had people up and dancing the entire time! We're still receiving comments from our guests about how much they enjoyed the band! The Moonlighters walked into our reception and encountered several glitches but they never showed it to us (the bride and groom) and kept a great and upbeat attitude while rolling with the punches. We are truly grateful for that. Again we were completely thrilled with the Moonlighters! They more than fulfilled all of our expectations!”
– Ryan V.

“We had a WONDERFUL event and The Moonlighters were exceptional. My husband (it was his birthday party) was thrilled to the max. Our guests LOVED the band. We had guests from the music industry who were entertained by their exceptional sound and LOVED the band. Thank you so much! They were easy to work with, on time, very professional and considerate. I would use them again without thinking twice...so would my guests.”
– Stella M.
“The Moonlighters did a fantastic job at our wedding! They brought such wonderful energy to the room. Everyone was dancing until the very end. Vance also was wonderful. I spoke to him a week before the wedding and he completely put my mind at ease that everything would be taken care of and it definitely was! I couldn't have been happier with them. I would recommend them in a heartbeat (and already have!). Thank you Moonlighters!!!”
– Kristina H.

– Tara B.
“Many thanks to this band for bringing fun & enthusiasm to our recent wedding! The music was perfect for the mood we were trying to achieve and the band members were all incredibly professional. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you to the band for your understanding and patience at the end of our reception - I know it got a little wild! Another thank you for providing music during dinner and at the end of your set. We had brought our own but there seemed to be some miscommunication with our wedding planner as to getting it played. We are so grateful you were well prepared!”
– Abigail S.
“Filled the dance floor at our office Christmas party, would definitely hire them again.”
– Karl H.
“What a fantastic band! They started on time and played without a break, despite the intense heat outside. Songs were perfect for our guests, and everyone enjoyed the music. My only regret was not booking them for a longer timeframe, as they left us wanting more. All band members were professional, friendly, and easy to work with. Can't wait to have them back for my next party!”
– Jen S.
“Band was great. Took the thunderstorm in stride and started playing as soon as the weather cleared. All requests from guests were honored and we received many compliments from friends and family. We would highly recommend them.”
– Mark F.
“The Moonlighters were FANTASTIC!! They set the mood for the entire evening and were even able to get some of the guests out on the dance floor...which is saying a lot with this group! I would definitely recommend them to friends and family for future event.”
– Melissa H.
“The Moonlighters were great! Everyone raved about them, and they were a perfect choice for our wedding!”
– Sandy B.
“We hired the trio (not the full Moonlighters band) for my sister's engagement party, and they were fantastic! Punctual, friendly, and accommodating to all our needs. They played a great selection of music and everyone loved them. Thank you!”
– Elizabeth D.
“The Moonlighters were a wonderful group! We hired them for a black tie, Valentine dance which we held in our home. They had to start later than we had originally anticipated, but they were very accommodating and got the job done. Our guest were delighted, every thank you note we got in the mail after the party commented on how great the band was! We hope to use them again this summer for a large outdoor event! Thank you for a job well done. Martha Curt, Harrisonburg Va.”
– Walter C.
“What a party..and the baaand!- They ROCKED! Who were they???" Is what every soul who was at our wedding has been talking about. "The MOONLIGHTERS!" I tell em. The collective Moonlighters came up big at our event in all the right ways, at all the right times. Everything went down perfectly for our outdoor rural wedding- except the weather- which they can't control. They were very accommodating in my musical tastes and went above and beyond what I was expecting. The smooth keyboard playing during the prelude and ceremony faded out to a recessional song from my CD and was a hit with perfect timing to introduce our guests to us and the night. During cocktails the playing continued to the delight of our guests as they mingled. For dinner which was in a large tent, a blues/jazz trio set up inside with us as our 150 guests dined. They were so classy, jazzy, hip, and head boppin' as they accompanied our feast with some sweet numbers both obscure and known. Already midway through the night and people were lovin it, as we got so many complements on their playing and song selection. After dinner came the real treat... no, not the wedding cake, but the soulful sounds of the full 7 piece swingin' band as our guests began to shake it! The stage and dancing was in an old barn next to the dinner tent and boy therin was a barnstorming. A funkin', soul searchin', rockin' good time was had by all, as every number they played got the dancefloor packed and for a solid 3 hours! After warming up the crowd our first dance songs were played from my CD's and again were incorporated into their live show just fine. The band really knew their songs and were able to bust into classic rock, soul, funk and requests at the drop of a hat. I found out we needed a bigger dancefloor as all ages sweated it out and boogied down. They even accommodated us with an extended version of "Shout!" for a family dancing tradition that got everyone pumped up and still packed them in with the sweet slow dancin' numbers. Only snag: I couldn't afford the overtime as guests shouted for MORE, MORE!! We recommend the Moonlighters/14k Music for those music lovers looking for something that is NOT RUN OF THE MILL. (OH and...bring your dancin' shoes...) BJ and Victoria Ervick”

“The Moonlighters were great. They were very professional, and helped us out with all the wedding announcements as well as playing great music. We received many compliments on how good the band was. If people weren't dancing, they had the reception chairs pulled up concert style to watch the guys play. Thanks fellas.”
– Sean P.
“The Moonlighters traveled to a very rural area, far from their home base, to perform at our wedding. They were punctual, extremely professional, and worked well entertaining the crowd and getting even non-dancers on the floor. They are an extremely talented band, and we were very satisfied with every aspect of working with them.”
– Colleen C.
“I was really impressed that I didn't have to give them much direction as to the music to play. I told them initially what we wanted and they ran with it. MANY people from our party commented on how great the Moonlighters were and how many of them would like to have them play at their functions. Kudos to the Moonlighters.”
– Melissa J.
“The Moonlighters were fantastic. They played a great, soulful blend of music and kept everyone dancing. They have a superb playlist full of classics and deeper tracks that shows off their truly rich and authentic sound. I'd say the genre is kind of a mix between motown and classic soul. We were also very pleased with their playing during the dinner hour, which provided ambience without overpowering the conversation. We also had the BET horns play who were equally fantastic. Numerous people at out wedding complimented the band, and said what a great sound they had. The Moonlighters are such a refreshing departure from the typical, cliched music you hear at a wedding. Ronnie Campbell was also great on the introductions of the wedding party. We could not have been more pleased. Everyone was supremely professional including William, the booking agent, who set it all up. The Moonlighters are not some glossy wedding band churning out the same 30 songs everyone has heard or some dj with an ipod and a two year vision of music pumping out bass so loud it scares your grandmother. These guys are the real deal, a fantastic band with a smooth sound and great energy. Highly recommended. Thanks again for the great night. Jon and Sooz.”
– Jon S.
“Thank you so much. I did not get the opportunity to speak to the gentleman that played the sax at my daughter's ceremony. I want to relay that he contributed to making her day a wonderful success. I received many compliments on his performance. Thank you so much!”
– Debbie B.
“EVERYONE LOVED THE BAND! THEY PERFORMED AND ACTED VERY PROFESSIONAL. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH THEM. I WOULD RECOMEND THEM TO EVERYONE. THEY PERFORMED AT MY IN-LAWS 50TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY WHICH HAD THE 50'S THEME. THEY PLAYED EVERYTHING FROM THE 5O'S TO DISCO IN THE 70'S. EVERYONE WAS DANCING. THE PARTY WAS OUTSIDE AND WAS AN EVENING EVENT. JUST GREAT!”
– Katherine G.
“The band was great! Everyone really enjoyed them and a few said they had danced for the first time in several years.”
– Susan G.
“They were great! Everyone loved them and many more people danced than I expected -- I credit this to the band. Professional, great sound, danceable, enjoyable songs that made my wedding a huge hit!!!”
– Deana M.
“The Moonlighters are a great band and a professional one. They arrived before an event that was off the beaten path and played a fantastic set of funk and motown songs to get everybody on the dance floor for my wedding. I highly recommend them!”
– Josh M.
“My wife and I were absolutely thrilled with the Moonlighters. We had so many guests tell us that ours was the most fun wedding they had been to in a long time, and possibly ever, and we owe that in no small way to the Moonlighters. If you want people to get up and dance at your event, the Moonlighters will get it done! We recommend them very highly.”
– Michael D.
“Excellent performance by the band at our wedding reception! They played the requested songs well and were also quick to accommodate a sudden change in the schedule. What I was most impressed by was their ability to adjust the sound level so that people were able to have discussions during the dinner. Most bands have no clue how loud their music is perceived by the guests.”
– Kenneth G.
“The Moonlighters were terrific! They were very professional and everyone loved the music and danced A LOT. Can't recommend them highly enough.”
– Joel R.
“They made my wedding. Velvet voices, dressed in tuxedos. Everyone loved, loved, loved the band. They sung every request we asked, effortlessly. The band was prompt, and professional. After my groom, gave me a toast.....they played a song that reflected the moment perfectly. It was a great time. If you want a stellar Motown band do not hesitant to contact the Moonlighters. I am already planning to hire them for my party next year. Great Band.”
– Kyra B.
“Just wanted to thank you for your help in finding an awesome band for our wedding on Saturday. The Moonlighters were absolutely fantastic! From the first song on, it was obvious that these guys were seriously on top of their game. Not only was their musicianship excellent, but they did a great job interacting with the crowd, getting people dancing, and just generally creating a fun atmosphere. I talked with them during one of their breaks and found them friendly and approachable. In short, the experience was just perfect. Everybody at the wedding raved about them. So thanks for making me look good!!!”
