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 300 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. (Note: We provide all live karaoke lyrics for clients selecting that option.)
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, ZipRecruiter, Maker Studios, Phenomenon, Grey's Anatomy, The California Water Service, Hixme, Camp Ramah, 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. If you want to scale up, we offer a horn section (trumpet, trombone, saxophone), violin/fiddle, additional vocalists, and a pro sound engineer with a full system.
Q: Why should I hire you? A: Because we're the best at what we do! Our players have the training (Berklee, CalArts, UCLA), the talent (myriad recording, live, and TV credits), and the versatility (nearly 700 available songs -- the most in LA) to make your event truly special. And we're always friendly and professional -- things you will quickly appreciate on the day of your wedding or event!
Q: Do you provide a sound system? Lighting? A stage? A: All our packages include a sound system (should your venue not provide one). For larger events, we strongly suggest hiring our in-house engineer, who provides a top-of-the-line PA system and stage lighting in addition to his services. We do not provide a stage, but we can assist 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 (honestly) our musical talent. There are more expensive bands / booking agencies, but you tend to be paying for office staff and laser shows -- 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 will only play a fixed 30 song setlist. Some "bands" are actually booking agencies. The Moon Units are a real band, not a commission-driven agency, and we will give you the best quality for your dollar, guaranteed.
Comedy / Magic We are the house band for LOST MOON RADIO, an award-winning LA based comedy ensemble. We have partnerships with magicians from Hollywood's world-renowned Magic Castle. Inquire for more info on either option.
