Q: What services do you provide? A: We are both a cover band and a live karaoke band. We can provide either option, or a combination of both, for your event. We play weddings, birthdays, corporate events, bars, cocktail parties, backyard parties, bar mitzvahs, festivals... you name it!
Q: What instruments do you offer? A: Our most basic package is a quartet: guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums. It's perfect for live band karaoke. You can also hire our fantastic lead singer for when we do covers.
We can also get really big. The largest version of our band has guitar, bass, keys, drums, male & female lead vocals, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, violin/fiddle, and a pro sound engineer. And we can do anything in between!
Q: Why should I hire you? A: Because we're the best at what we do! Everyone in the band holds degrees from top music programs -- Berklee College of Music, UCLA, and CalArts. We have the largest song list in LA County (over 700 available songs), and we can play in all styles. And we're friendly, flexible, and professional -- things you will quickly appreciate on the day of your event!
Q: Where have you played? A: The Moon Units have been playing together since 2009. Our most frequent events are private parties, especially weddings. But we play a lot of company events. Our clients have included: Sony Pictures, Sony Television, Maker Studios, Grey's Anatomy, The California Water Service, Hixme, Camp Ramah, Phenomenon, KPCC, and The LA Weekly. We're the house band of Lost Moon Radio and The Hollywood Fringe Festival. And we play every Thursday at Scum & Villainy Cantina in Hollywood.
Q: Do you provide karaoke lyrics? Sound system? Lighting? A stage? A: We provide all lyrics for karaoke -- on your choice of either a digital screen or laminated sheets. We can provide sound and lights if your venue does not offer them. (Additional charges may apply.) We do not provide a stage, but we can assist you with the rental process. We can also provide insurance if your venue requires it.
Q: I found a lower price from another band. Will you match it? A: We will if we can! Please bring us a competitor's price and we'll do our best to match it, without sacrificing the professionalism and versatility you only get with The Moon Units.
Please note, however, that not all quotes are the same. Some bands have only 3 players; our ensemble starts at 4 players and can be as large as 10. Some "bands" are actually a single music contractor who hires different people to play in different bands across town at the same time. That's not us -- and we will give you the best quality for your dollar, guaranteed.
Q: Can I see you perform live? A: Yes! Although most of our events are private parties, we have a free-and-open-to-the-public residency on Thursday nights from 8:30-11:30pm at the Scum & Villainy Cantina at 6377 Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles. It's all live band karaoke, but even if you only want us to play covers at your event... you should still come by!
