About Moon Rivers

The Only Party band to take you from Stevie Wonder to Spice Girls all in one night! - Then from Elvis to Dua Lipa!
Wedding band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

We are Pop & Rock Covers band comprised of professional musicians and entertainers with vast experience in performing live events and planning live performances. We have come together as Moon Rivers through our shared love of the upbeat music of the nineties and noughties. We lean towards a guitar-driven, high-energy indie, rock and pop anthems from the likes of Queen, Kings of Leon, Bruno Mars, The Killers and Oasis but you will quickly discover that we are not afraid to throw in a few of the era's infectious pop classics from artists like S Club 7, The Spice Girls and The Rembrandts (yes, that’s the Friends theme song!) creating an audacious mix that's certain to get your nostalgia senses tingling, and have you and your guests singing and dancing all night! Rounding out our repertoire with pacy covers of the 50s and 60s rock n roll classics for vintage lovers and up-to-the-minute modern chart hits for the youngsters (and young at heart), we are the complete function band with only one goal in mind – to transform your event into a joyful, non-stop party. We thrive off the energy and fun of a live performance and want you and your guests to have as good a time on the dance floor as we do on stage. Fronted by a powerful male vocalist who is also a witty entertainer with years of experience working for Europe’s finest 5-star holiday resorts and backed by ultra-tight bass, electrifying guitar and foot-stomping drums, we are a band with a big sound and matching personality. We manage the band ourselves (shout out to our bassist and admin/logistics extraordinaire, Allen) which means that YOU receive a competitive, all-inclusive price and above all prompt, personal and friendly service! MOON RIVERS Why choose us There's just something about live music filling the room from corner to corner that completely amplifies your evening in every way! Nothing quite tops having a live band, doing what we do best, to bring the party to life. We understand that when you have that special celebration in mind whether it is your WEDDING or BIRTHDAY or you just want to dance the night away with your workmates at your work CHRISTMAS PARTY, you want to make it perfect! You want it to be a night to remember! ​We pride ourselves on building strong relationships with our clients. We believe that knowing what you love and want (and what you don’t) is as important as our performance on stage on the day. So, if you have any questions don’t be afraid to get in touch! It will be our pleasure to guide you through every step of the process, answer any questions and offer you suggestions so that between us we can ensure that your evening is everything you want and more. ​We offer recorded music between sets (AKA a DJ Playlist Service or Disco Service) to keep the night on the high even when we are not up on stage. We have everything we need to bring you and your guests a proper live performance, including a professional PA sound system and lighting, a fog machine, a laptop playlist DJ service and party props to create a party mood from the minute we arrive. If you are booking us for your wedding reception, we will also learn and perform your first dance if it isn’t already in our repertoire, making it easy to personalise this special part of your Big day.

We stumbled into this pub where the most amazing band were playing, I absolutely loved them and have talked about them on and off ever since that night. To see them at my surprise party was just amazing! Emotions that I cannot even begin to explain.
