The Original Moonlighters

Washington, DC - Dance Band

Washington, DC

Since 1990, The Original Moonlighters8 have been performing throughout the United States as one of the country’s best-loved and most authentic variety bands. Averaging over one hundred appearances per year, they offer affordable quality, specializing in weddings, private parties, festivals, concerts and corporate events with an emphasis on strong, soulful vocals and solid instrumentation.

Just close your eyes and you’ll swear the original artists are performing. But don’t close them for too long or you won’t be able to enjoy their outstanding dance moves and showmanship. Famous for getting guests out on the dance floor and more importantly, for keeping them there, The Original Moonlighters are experts at reading the crowd and gladly take requests, making their performances highly entertaining and interactive as audiences just feed off the band’s energy and vice versa.

The Original Moonlighters can also be booked in several different combinations to fit any budget and type of event, from just two or three musicians to as many as ten or twelve, including one of the tightest horn sections in the country and some of the finest male and female vocalists anywhere.

"The Original 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 Original Moonlighters were great! Everyone raved about them, and they were a perfect choice for our wedding!"
- Sandy B 

"The Original 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 Original Moonlighters were wonderful - exactly the sort of band we were looking for 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

"WOW! We were beyond thrilled with the quality and sound of The Original 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!"
