About The Moonrunners

Party band
Public liability insurance of £5 million

We are The Moonrunners, a high-energy party band perfect for your wedding or event. With an extensive catalogue of crowd favourites, we’ll have your dance floor packed all night long. Having played together since we were 13, The Moonrunners Band has gained over 15 years of experience performing live shows at thousands of events across the UK. Jack (lead vocals and guitar), Rob (drums), and Dan (bass) have played everything from pubs, festivals, weddings, tours, parties, corporate events, and more. Our signature sound is indie-rock but we have an appreciation for all styles of music. So whether you’re after a night of disco, pop hits, country, or a little bit of everything, we can tailor our repertoire to create your ideal event. Get in touch to discuss your requirements. We would love to be a part of your perfect event. Jack, Rob, and Dan • Ceremony Have you got a particular song that you would like to walk down the isle to? We would be honoured to play this for you. We would play completely acoustically, all three of us would sing to create a moment you will remember forever. This would be an added cost to the overall price. • Drinks Reception Would you like some background music during your drinks reception? We can provide a 1 hour acoustic set with percussion, acoustic guitars and 3 vocals at a time of your choosing. This would also be an added extra cost, please let us know in your enquiry if you are interested in this service. • First Dance We will learn your first dance and play it live absolutely free of charge! Just tell us what it is and which arrangement you would like, and we will do it. • Evening Party We are fully equipped with a full PA and Lighting, we can provide either 2 x 60 minute sets or 3 x 40 minute sets. We will also provide DJ music before, in between and after our live sets completely free of charge. All we need is for you send us a playlist of music you would like to hear of up to 30 songs and we will do the rest! • Extra Musicians? Our repertoire is quite vast and there is not much we can’t play, however we do pride ourselves on our ability to play indie Rock music. So if you would like a female singer, keyboard, extra guitarist or any horns like saxophone, trumpet or Trombone we have lots of close friends in the music industry at our disposal to join us in making your event as memorable as possible! • Listen When looking at different bands for your event it’s understandable to be worried that they might not sound like they do on the videos and demos. With ‘The Moonrunners’ our videos were shot live in one take, so what you see and hear is exactly what you get on the day! We feel that our clients should be safe in the knowledge that when we turn up to play, they needn’t worry that they won’t be as good as they are online. This is why we decided to shoot our videos live for an exact representation of what we can offer!

The Moonrunners were simply brilliant! The afternoon set was the perfect background to the reception and the band were so good we had a number of people simply sit and watch them rather than play the garden games. Great selection of music played incredibly. Then the night! Just wow! The band was super accommodating with organising our first dance. The guys were easy to communicate with and were very easy-going as the dinner/speeches over-ran a bit. Once they started playing, the dance floor filled and didn't empty except when they had to take their breaks but it was full again after the played the first note. The band learned a song for us as a special request and nailed it. I've been getting feedback from everyone who attended that they were incredible and I can say that they really made the night. Song selection was great, they were high energy and really played to the crowd who just loved it. Honestly could not fault a thing with them all night. Even the nice touch of letting us choose a final song to play through the PA let us play a special song to finish the party. I hope they travel near Manchester because my sister-in-law is getting married there next July and I think that they want to book The Moonrunners for their wedding too, they were just that good. I really hope that they had a good time too - it was the best day of our lives and they really made it something extra special. Would happily write any review or recommendations that they need to promote them. - Conor & Rach

We cannot thank the lovely guys of The Moonrunners enough for all they did on our special day. Super organised and couldn't have been nicer. They sounded incredible in both the acoustic set and the evening sets. Learning our first dance song and playing it live was just so cool to see, you can really tell they just love what they do. So many guests comments throughout the night too of how good they sounded. We hope this isn’t the last time we see The Moonrunners live!!
