South West regional winner the wedding awards

Wedding awards

We recently won the award for best wedding entertainment at the 2017 Bristol & Somerset Wedding Awards!

This is the second year in a row we've won the Bristol & Somerset award, having previously enjoyed two successive years of winnning the regional Wedding Industry Award (TWIA) for best live wedding band in the South West. Here are some of the great comments we received from happy couples that contributed to these successes:

 

"These guys were amzing from start to finish, providing planning meetings, advance song choices for us to select from which had a fab range of choices from modern to golden oldies to just outright fun (Vanilla Ice Ice Baby topped our night!)"

"We initially found the Moon Loungers after a recommendation from our venue, but what sealed the deal was being able to watch all of the band's performance videos online."

"What an amazing band! Kept the dance floor full all night, sorted any song we asked for and played an amazing set all with smiles on their faces."

"Amazing entertainment, really nice guys and even learnt a new song just for our first dance!"

"The Moon Loungers are the perfect choice for wedding enterainment. They really show they care in the lead up to the wedding and are prepared to listen and work with your ideas. The wedding day itself was made easy in terms of the entertainment, it was all fuss free and the music was second to none. our guests all commented on how fantastic the Moon Loungers were both as an acoustic duo and the evening band.  They were funny and kept the crowd going, as well as being professional."

“If you want a band who know their stuff, these are your guys!”

"The added extras were nice e.g. a pre-wedding meeting with a cuppa to meet the band before the day, and the band offering to play a track of our choice for the first dance"

"The band was fantastic, the music quality and type was perfect for our wedding, our guests loved them and danced all night. The guys are lovely and mingled well with the guests. The first dance was organised well. They are very professional."

"The Moonlounges are the best musical weding act we have ever seen!  They are so good at getting the guests up dancing, they play a huge variety of songs and they are genuinely nice guys.  We were given song choices early in advance, we chose our favourite songs and they put together a brilliant set. Our pre-wedding meeting was informal and they made us feel very at ease."

"Great wedding band - had the dance floor full all night. Nothing too much trouble."

“Booked this band as after thorough research heard they were really good! Next day saw them at a friend’s wedding! After seeing them we knew they were the best band for our wedding! They were outstanding from start to finish! We had such a good evening singing and dancing along to them! They played an extra special part in making our wedding the best it could be.”

"Great entertainment, really lively and read the crowd well!  Highly recommend."

“We booked them at short notice (just over a month before our wedding) and they were able to learn the song for our first dance which meant so much to us.”

“They came highly recommended by the wedding be venue and did not disappoint. We were able to research them through their videos on YouTube and songs on Spotify and really liked what we saw/heard, which was really important.”

“I had a small wedding only 40 people but the guys were amazing. My husband was very nervous about having music played due to hearing problems and was dead against having any live music being played. But the guys put him at ease via email and the end result was perfect.”

“The Moon Loungers were really helpful from day one and always quick to respond to any questions we had. They were great at giving advice for song lists and were a pleasure to work with. They played our first dance request and everyone commented on how good they were. They even let the groom surprise me (the bride) with a song that he did with the band. It was amazing”.

“Professional and polished band who know their stuff.  Quietly confident, not full of themselves, great communication and most of all...a sense of humour. We also loved the blog after our wedding. It made us feel special, thank you.”

“All wedding guest commented on how good the band were, for the acoustic and main set.  Very professional and great guys to work with.”

“Faultless musical performance at our wedding and very nice lads too!”

“Brilliant service from start to finish.  No request was too difficult and we felt at ease throughout the build up to the wedding. The night itself, the band were brilliant and the evening went brilliantly.”

“A great group of guys we instantly connected with.”

“The most wonderful band who took the time to learn our first dance song which was not on their set list. The dance floor was busy all night as the band were so good. After the wedding people kept asking about the band.”

“Met with us prior to wedding date to ensure we were happy. Created a fab atmosphere, my family still talk about it!”

“They were brilliant, I have never seen such a busy dance floor, and people didn't leave from the minute they started to the minute they finished. One hell of a party...just what we wanted!”

“Saw the Moon Loungers perform at a wedding a couple of years prior and knew I wanted a live band for my wedding, but didn't want to go with someone I hadn't seen play before.  Contacted them through their website - all very simple - and met up with them a few weeks before the wedding to go through the playlist. Really friendly, easy going guys.”

“Great bunch of guys and very talented. All guests (and us) loved them and they made the night!”

“We thought the service and adaptability of the band were excellent they did their upmost to meet all our needs including a last minute venue change when the sun decided to come out. They always made us feel welcome and the key thing for us was the flexibility in the music they played accommodating bit mine and my wife's varied music taste. The acoustic set was perfect for the venue and all the guests commented how excellent they were. ..I think they got a few enquiries off of it!”

“Absolutely fantastic! The organisation side was easy. Emails were answered promptly. On the actual day The Moon Loungers were absolutely fantastic. The music was great and had all the songs we had asked for. All the guests loved them and the dance floor was never empty.”

“We absolutely loved having the moon loungers play at our wedding. They were so friendly, fitted in perfectly with the tone of our wedding, made the songs personal to us with dedications and anecdotes and turned up on time. Everybody loved their covers and they played such a wide range of songs that they could fit in with whatever style of music you wanted.”

“The Loungers were really friendly and approachable from the very outset. They took time to listen to and understand our reqs and tailored accordingly. They instilled confidence from day 1 of meeting them and allowed us to focus on other wedding tasks, safe in the knowledge that all was in hand with themselves. They also had a good sense of humour again putting us at ease especially as we hadn't seen them live before. Great set of lads. Feedback from our guests was exceptional.”

“These guys were great at accommodating our special requests. I play drums in a band myself and I was really impressed with their backline and performance energy.”

“Amazing band best decision we made choosing them for the wedding made our evening and everyone commented on how great they were. They were flawless on the night better than we could have ever expected.”

“The Moon Loungers did a brilliant job of keeping the dance floor full and created the perfect party atmosphere. They were very professional in every way, both on the night itself and in the lead up to our wedding. They kept in touch, recommended we see them to discuss music we wanted. They also learnt our first dance song request which was an extra bonus! We were recommended them by a friend and would absolutely recommend them to others. Well worth every penny!”

“Just the best band possible. Fantastic set and the part of our wedding the guests were most impressed by.”

“I cannot flaw the Moon loungers. What an amazing band!! They remembered my love for The Beatles and threw it in at perfect moments throughout the night, gave great expertise on how to organise the first dance, were incredibly helpful and prompt throughout the planning, and kept the entire wedding on the dance floor ALL NIGHT. Simply perfect, and I'd hire them 1000 times over.”

“The moonloungers deserve huge recognition for their talents. After learning a brand new song in just 2 weeks, for our first dance they made a massive first impression. Their energy and enthusiasm just lights up the room, and keeps everyone entertained all night, never seen such a full dance floor. The friendliest band too. Such nice people. They are able to adapt to any song request you throw at them, being so flexible with 3 singers with such different voices and range.”

"They are always professional, friendly and do a fantastic range of old and new songs that they put their own twist on.”

“We looked around for months trying to find the best band for our wedding. Eventually it all fell into place with the Moon Loungers. Classic tracks, without being too overly 'wedding-y'.”

"I really can't do justice with words to the quality of their playing, their comic banter, how well put together their setlist was, and the perfect blend of the 3 of them as performers. I also can't accurately share how incredulous I was at having everybody up and dancing continuously - I have been to many family events and there were dancers who I've never seen up before."

“The Moon Loungers were excellent at our wedding and provided just what we wanted for our day. They were also flexible in last minute, playing their first set outside as it was a beautiful evening which really made the day even more lovely.
 
“They were absolutely fantastic. They gave us great advice before the wedding and on the day we had compliments from a huge number of our guests, including my (very hard to impress) father in law. They played something for everyone and got even the most unlikely people up on the dance floor.”

“They were such a great band and fantastic to work with in the lead up to the wedding; really personable, polite and professional. And they helped us have a huge party that everyone loved!”

“They were amazing, they also totally made our wedding perfect. The boys nailed it....... end of. Thanks chaps (still buzzing from the night!).”

“The band were absolutely perfect.”

“After watching their content on youtube I was immediately impressed by their talent and style. They stood out as different from the majority of other bands yet played a great variety of music. Upon meeting them they were down to earth and friendly guys and there set was outstanding on the night.”

“We really appreciated everything they did on our wedding day, they were so warm it was like having some more mates at the wedding! Everyone had an amazing time at the wedding reception, boppin around to the music we think thats a lot to do with the selection of music they played and the performance”

“I still remained stunned that a 3 person band can produce such stunning, varied music. And the drummer sings! I have never seen a dance floor so packed by all ages - and it was NEVER empty whilst they were on. Truly incredible guys.”

“Absolutely phenomenal entertainment on the night - the Moonloungers definately made our wedding. The guys played each song back to back to ensure the dancefloor was packed at all times - just didn't want the party to end! We would highly recommend them to anyone.”
