The Original Moonlighters ®

Based in Washington DC

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 dance bands.

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 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.

They 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.
