The band can play music from many genres of music such as rock 'n' roll and classic rock right through to pop, soul, funk, disco and motown.
The group will usually perform one of the following options, but are available to alter this to fit your needs:
2 x 45-60 minutes sets
3 x 40 minute sets
Background music can be provided whilst the group are not performing.
Wedding and Corporate Services:
The Moonstones offer the following extended options to those clients who wish to make their event as memorable as possible.
This is the basic option to book the band for your evening party. The band will perform 2 x 45-60 min sets, as well as provide background/disco music before, between, and after the performance until the end of the party.
In addition to the live performance, The Moonstones will also provide a seperate DJ before, between and after sets. The additional DJ brings you the advantage of enabling a constant feel for the party, providing on the spot mixes and is able to take requests.
In addition to the silver package, the DJ will also provide a photo booth, allowing you and your guests to have special photos taken to mark the occasion. The photo booth will be available throughout various points of the night. This proves to be extremely popular with guests.
In addition to the above, The Moonstones will also provide either a singer/guitarist or a singer/pianist to perform background music throughout your ceremony and drinks reception, where the artist can also sing you down the aisle.
Of course it is possible to mix these options. For example, you may wish to book the band without the DJ and photobooth, but may wish to have a singer/pianist at your wedding reception. Let the band know when filling out your enquiry.
For weddings, all options include your first dance song which can be performed either live by the band or though the DJ system.
The price of the band varies depending on a number of factors such as:
-Type of gig and what is required
-Performance/set up time
-Sound/lighting equipment selection
-Travel distance to and from venue
The Moonstones perform some of the biggest and best hits from the best artists from the 50's to the present day. Each set will consist of songs which are carefully chosen, dependant upon the overall audience. A collection of rock 'n' roll, pop, soul, modern hits, classics, one hit wonders. There truly is something for everyone. The band generally will not take on the spot requests as that has the danger of spoiling the flow of the show. Requests can be sent to the band prior to the event and the band may choose to perform them if they will go well with the show. Requests for the DJ playlist can be taken.
The Moonstones have some basic requirements when getting ready to perform a gig:
-Available fresh drinking water
