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 have a 350 song "active list" and an additional 400 songs that we can add on short notice. It's the biggest song list in Southern California, and our band members are masters of many genres.
Since forming in 2009, our most frequent events have been private parties, especially weddings. We also regularly play corporate events. Past clients have included: Sony Pictures, Sony Television, Ford, Maker Studios, Grey's Anatomy, The California Water Service, Hixme, Camp Ramah, Phenomenon, KPCC, and The LA Weekly. We're the house band of The Hollywood Fringe Festival and the award-winning Lost Moon Radio.
Q: What instruments do you offer? A: Our core band features guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums, plus our fabulous singer who takes lead vocal on covers and then hosts "live band karaoke" for those who want to include it.
The largest version of our band has male & female vocals, guitar, bass, keys, drums, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, violin/fiddle, and a pro sound engineer with a full system. 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 wedding, party, or event!
Q: Do you provide karaoke lyrics? Sound system? Lighting? A stage? A: All our packages include a sound system (should your venue not provide one). For more elaborate events, we strongly encourage you to hire our in-house pro sound engineer, who provides a top-of-the-line PA system in addition to his services. We provide all lyrics for live band karaoke. We can provide lights if your venue does not offer them. (Additional charges will apply.) We do not provide a stage, but we can assist you with the rental process. We can also provide event insurance if your venue requires it.
Q: I found a lower price from another band. Will you match it? A: We are confident that we offer the best value of any band out there. There are cheaper bands, but they don't have our massive song list, the "live karaoke" option, or our versatile roster of top players. There are more expensive bands, but you tend to be paying for their costumes and fog machines -- they won't beat us in terms of actual music.
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. Do note, however, that not all quotes are the same. Some bands have only 3 players. 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.
