  • We cannot say enough about the Original Moonlighters!!! Will, the manager was very attentive to email and communicating throughout the entire process. We ended up getting the 8 piece band, and it was money well spent! The band and singers are phenomenal! It was so much more like attending a concert, than a typical wedding band. They even learned our wedding song. If you are in to Motown, jazz or funk, this is the band for you! We loved how they were able to read the crowd and choose songs to get everyone up dancing. They even took requests. At one point, they even had all the ladies doing a choreographed dance to Rolling Down the River. The band truly went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having great time. Our guests are still talking about how awesome our band was. Thank you for making our wedding so special and unforgettable!!!
