Playing keys and providing vocals, Brian and Jo use backing tracks, a vocal harmonizer, and Bose sound equipment to give their clients that full sound usually reserved for much larger bands, but still maintaining the fine control over volume to conform to any venue, small or large.
"Thanks for all of your help with the band. The Moonlighters were awesome! They were very accommodating as they were originally set up outside on the deck, but moved inside during their break as the weather got a little colder. Everything about the two of them was great, their sound, their vibe, their song selection, it was all very impressive.
