Since 1990, The Moonlighters ® have been performing throughout the United States as one of the country’s best-loved and most authentic Motown and variety bands. Averaging over one hundred appearances per year, we offer affordable quality, specializing in weddings, corporate functions, private parties, festivals and concert appearances, 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 our outstanding dance moves and showmanship. Famous for getting guests out on the dance floor and more importantly, for keeping them there, The Moonlighters ® are experts at reading the crowd and gladly take requests, making our performances highly entertaining and interactive as audiences just feed off the band’s energy and vice versa.

We can also be booked in several different combinations to fit any budget and venue 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. Meticulously-groomed and costumed, whether it’s for ceremony, cocktail or dinner music, a casual outdoor reception or a classy black-tie affair, The Moonlighters ® have a show custom-tailored to best suit any theme.

Featuring HUNDREDS of songs in a wide variety of styles, we do it all very well. Critically-acclaimed, we have performed an unprecedented seven times at The Kennedy Center, for countless political and business leaders, at various foreign embassies, and other prestigious venues, covering well over a dozen different states, including: DC, MD, VA, WV, DE, PA, NJ, NY, KY, TN, OH, IL, NC, SC, GA, FL, and MT.

As seen again and again in our many rave reviews, thousands of appreciative listeners and hundreds of satisfied talent buyers all agree, The Moonlighters ® are dedicated, professionals truly committed to making each and every show an event to remember. But of course, we're in heavy demand with a schedule that always fills up fast, so don’t delay…please contact us today!

The Original Moonlighters provided an amazing performance for our wedding reception at Ceresville Mansion. Vance and his band were exceptional and performed a wide variety of selections. Every guest was out on the dance floor and days later talked about the wonderful performance by the band. We would highly recommend the Original Moonlighters for a wedding reception or any event.

They made my wedding. Velvet voices, soothing sounds, 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.
