Cocktail Hour/Dinner Set

If you desire musical ambience as your guests arrive, during cocktail hour or as a soft accompaniment to your dinner, enjoy our quartet featuring drums, piano, bass and saxophone. Our repertoire spans almost every genre of music including soft jazz, Broadway classics, movie theme songs, easy listening pops and light Gospel standards.

You can also expand the quartet performance with some sultry vocals from one of our singers or some jazzy horns from our talented ensemble. For that special “intimate touch,” another popular option with our clients is having one of our talented keyboardists as a solo pianist.

“We had seen Party on the Moon at a friend’s wedding before, but this time the quartet played during dinner and my wife, a jazz pianist herself, was literally brought to tears as she listened. Awesome!”  – Steven Kincaid, Tampa, FL

The raw energy and vocal power rivals anything I have seen on the road in my 30 years in the biz.” –

  • What an amazing event and you all were the icing on the cake!  Thank you so much for everything. I truly enjoyed working with you as well!  Hopefully we will work together many times in the future.

    Jessica A Southern Event Planning Company
  • I received a million compliments on how great you were, so thanks for another great show! We hope to see you guys again soon.

    Sheila McLenaghan SVP, Customer Relations, PGA TOUR
  • The band was fantastic!  They had that crowd dancing all night long and the talent level on that stage was incredible.  ‘Best band ever’ was a frequently heard comment.  Not just the singing, but the dancing and the personalities of the members was just phenomenal.  We had a professional drummer in the audience and he said they were better than many he works with.  He also said when he gets married he wants Party on the Moon even if it means he can’t afford anything else.  I call that high praise!  Honestly we loved working with you all and we have already given your name to many of our friends who were there. Thank you!

  • This past Saturday was our 13th annual Premier Gala, with over 950 people in attendance. I must say our event this year was by far our largest success, largely due to Party on the Moon's performance being way way “over the top”! Fabulous just doesn’t cut it...their energy level, interaction with the crowd and dancing, singing, acting …what a complete package. The next day your band, and our event, was the talk of the town. I have had at least 40 people come up to me after the event and tell me to make sure we book the band again for 2018, so please pencil in the date.

  • Thank YOU so much for everything - POTM was fabulous, everyone loved them and the dance floor was packed all night. They were so professional and wonderful to work with as always - and, I appreciate all of your help with the logistics so much. The wedding was amazing and we had the very BEST band!! Thank you for helping everything to run so smoothly. I can't wait for the next one.  

    Jenny Event Planner
  • Party on the Moon's performance was beyond fabulous! Everyone had an amazing interactive time.  The energy was electric and even the costume changes were wow! I speak for everyone I've talked with who attended, you wowed us all! Thank you for everything, it was great to see you all again.

  • Fabulous, magical...there are not enough adjectives to describe Saturday night. Party on the Moon never lets you down. It was a beautiful, stunning wedding that Catherine and Brent along with their family and friends will never forget. It is a gift of memories... I loved the girls dresses. What a class act!

    Debbie W.
  • Thank you for creating the best party ever in Kansas City. We had a blast and have received rave reviews about Party on the Moon!! Turning 50 and we can still dance, jump and party!! Comments: Best Party Ever, Party of the Century, Party of the Decade. Top of the list. To me the band makes the party and you all did just that on Saturday Night!!!! We all had sore calf’s the next day! You are the best band in the country. Thank you and I hope you had a safe trip back to Atlanta. See you in the Bahamas for the Brooks wedding!

    Ellen Merriman
  • Thank you so much for suggesting Party On the Moon’s sister band, Simply Irresistible.  I want to have another party just to have them again!

    Margo Harrod
  • Simply Irresistible and Party on the Moon performed together at our event in October. The girls were amazing and the entire group wowed the guests. I think we could have left off the food and drinks and our guests would have still been intoxicated off these two (2) outstanding bands alone!

    Barry West AIFD / Blossoms Events
  • WOW! Party on the Moon is just wonderful! What a fun time the guests had with the music and dancing. Thank you for helping us with the information that we needed. You guys have it all entertainment and helpful organizational skills. I hope we have the opportunity to work with you again.

    Event Producer
  • As usual, Party on the Moon lived up to its reputation as being extraordinary.  I have given you the label as the best band in the entire world. You made our Gala of Hope a very special event.

    William R. Harvey President Hampton University
  • Everyone enjoyed (once again) Party on the Moon! I heard several people say, “They just keep getting better!” Y’all truly made our event great! We’re already looking forward to next year – January 24th at the North Charleston Convention Center! We’ll see you next year!

    Pam Zaresk Maritime Association of South Carolina / President
  • Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that Party on the Moon exceeded everyone’s expectations and the bride is elated. Not only was the band great, but the vocal harmonies were spot on! The stage energy went non-stop for four hours and the crowd interaction was perfect! Even after the band stopped the girls were out on the dance floor with the bride dancing to the DJ. Dennis went above and beyond to work with the bride and myself for requests and last minute changes. You can be proud of this top shelf act!

  • I want to thank you again for the amazing job you did for us in Virginia Beach. Just the fact that you made it through a tropical storm is incredible, and to put on a show like you all did, well, it’s nothing short of fantastic! Your lighting design was spectacular and we created an environment that made the whole evening truly memorable. As always, the Party on the Moon vocalists were the best in the business, the back line was terrific, and the Hornz Unlimited guys really brought their “A” game. You really made Elizabeth and Bernie’s wedding a night they will never forget. We can’t wait to throw another party with Party on the Moon!

    Tim Robertson Father of the bride
  • Party on the Moon – seriously best band I have ever seen, they were the best choice and they were so so nice!!! So much fun and such great crowd pleasers – I still can’t believe they played for four hours straight! Absolutely amazing!

    Gloria Moncrief Bride
  • You are fabulous. Party on the Moon made the wedding. Thank you and your band for an extraordinary performance! Everyone absolutely loved you…especially Alexa and Gerry and the MOB. Every venue was magical…from Friday’s trio to the dancing after the rehearsal dinner to the after glow party! Young and old loved you all. You brought the house down! Thank you for making this Alexa’s Princess wedding! We sincerely appreciate it!

    Melanie Sabelhaus Mother of the Bride
  • Party on the Moon was the most fabulous band that anyone at the wedding had ever heard or danced to. Everyone raved and raved about them and we loved having them at our wedding!!

    Karen Gadlin Mother of the Bride

    Dwight Moody President / Wachovia Securities
  • Party on the Moon is the greatest show of all time! It’s been two days since our wedding and the groom, guests and I are sore from our heads to our toes from dancing our faces off with you. Y’all are so talented, fun, and hard working. Thank you, thank you! Best wedding ever!
