Incredible talent

The Moonrunners made our wedding reception truly unforgettable. They are professional, friendly and a pleasure to work with. Every guest was on the dance floor from beginning to end- even our photo booth supplier said they were the best wedding band they’ve seen. So grateful to have had them on the night, can’t recommend them enough!

Highly recommended band

We booked Moonrunners for our wedding after months of searching for versatile band that could cover a good array of music genres. They got all of our guests up dancing from the first song and kept us all dancing all night. Cant rate this talented band highly enough for your perfect wedding band as they provide DJ music and MC services as well as providing their own lighting, thanks guys you were amazing!

Would 100% recommend

So glad that we found Brightside, having been badly let down by our original band. Their agents, Tailored Entertainment looked after us from first contacting them to the day before the wedding, guiding us each step of the way and always keeping us informed. We had never met or heard the band live but loved their website videos and they certainly didn't disappoint. They may not have stuck entirely to our play list but they read our 'slightly older' audience like a book and the dance floor was never empty, with so many compliments afterwards. They were a pleasure to work with and we would 100% recommend Brightside/Moonrunners. Thank you all, Nick & Jane

The perfect evening entertainment for our wedding

We had the pleasure of having The Moonrunners perform at our wedding recently, and we couldn't have asked for a better musical experience! From start to finish, they truly rocked our special day.

The dance floor was full all night long, and it's all thanks to The Moonrunners incredible talent and infectious energy. From the first note they played to the very last, our guests couldn't resist the dance floor, and that's exactly what we wanted for our celebration.

One of the standout moments was them learning and performing a special song just for our wedding. It was a personal touch that made the night.

The band's versatility was on full display, seamlessly transitioning from different genres of music. They catered to all age groups and musical tastes.

Their professionalism was top-notch, from their punctuality to their communication throughout the planning process. They went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly, allowing us to relax and enjoy our big day without worry.

In short, they made our wedding an absolute blast, and we can't thank them enough for their incredible performance with all our guests commenting on how brilliant they were. If you're looking for a band that will bring the party to life, exceed your expectations, and make your wedding day truly memorable, look no further than The Moonrunners.

Amazing Band - Highlight of our Party!

I had the pleasure of organising a corporate 40th party for 200 guests where The Moonrunners performed, and I must say, they were the absolute highlight of the event. The atmosphere they created was simply fantastic. From the moment they started playing, they had everyone up and dancing, which is no small feat at a party!

One of the standout aspects of this band was their professionalism. They arrived on time, set up without any hassle, and were ready to go when the party kicked off. Their experience and expertise were evident in the way they seamlessly transitioned between songs and engaged with the crowd. They had an impressive repertoire, catering to various musical tastes, and it seemed like they could play just about anything.

In terms of dealing with the band, it was an absolute pleasure. They were responsive to my emails leading up to the event and easy to communicate with throughout the planning process. It's always reassuring to work with professionals who make the event coordination a breeze.

Overall, this band made the 40th party an unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend them for any event, as they bring not only great music but also a level of professionalism that sets them apart. If you want to ensure your wedding or event is a hit, look no further than this talented band.

Absolutely the best!!!

We’ve just had The Moonrunners for our wedding (April 2023) and it was just amazing! The dance floor was full with guests dancing and singing along all night long!
They were so accommodating with our first dance and our music choices!
They were so flexible and helpful with the music and really read the room on the night.
High energy, got everyone involved and made it really personal for us!
Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a live band and we would book them again in a heartbeat!

Amazing Band

I booked the band for a 40th birthday party. They absolutely made the event. It was a perfect set list and brilliant performance. They managed the logistics perfectly and were polite and easy to deal with. I have had so many people saying how fabulous they thought the band were and I couldn’t agree more. It was everything I hoped for and then some! The packed dance floor shows how much we all enjoyed it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these guys.

Fantastic Band - read the room and got everyone dancing!

We looked at loads of different bands all across the South, and we really wanted a band that would keep everyone on the dance floor, as we both love dancing so much!
We had Moonrunners do an afternoon acoustic set during our canapes - which set a lovely atmosphere.
In the evening, the band did 2 x 1-hour sets. They were amazing! They learnt our first dance pick, performing it perfectly.
The band was great at reading the room and finding songs everyone loved to dance to.

Thank you so much for being a great part of our wedding!

These guys are fantastic! Don’t hesitate to book

There are so many ‘wedding bands’ out there, that we weren’t sure where to start looking! We knew the sound/vibe we wanted but were nervous about booking as it’s so hard to see any of them live beforehand. But after much deliberation we choose The Moonrunners as we loved their sound in their demo videos and their set list covered all of our faves. And genuinely this turned out to be one of the best decisions we made for day!

We requested a first dance that wasn’t on their set list (an acoustic version on Everlong), and they played it brilliantly. In the lead up to the big day, they were very accommodating and ensured their timings fitted with the version we had been practicing from. Thank-you! It made the first dance a little less terrifying!!

They played so many great songs throughout the night, and were great at reading the crowd too. I didn’t stop dancing all night, and even the most reluctant guests joined in. From air drumming to an impromptu conga line, it was a fantastic evening and we’ve got so many great memories (and photos) of it all. Months on our friends and family are still talking about what a great find they were, and have even tried to book them themselves.

Thank-you so much for making the evening so special! You were definitely one of the best decisions we made for the day!
