Meet the Band
Our band members are all accomplished musicians in their own right with a wealth of musical experience and an engaging performance style. We can also call on a number of fine musicians to expand the band as needed, for example by adding live bass and drums, or a backing singer. All our musicians are experienced players who perform regularly with Moondance.
