AMAZING!

Heather Moran sang at our wedding!
Not only does Heather have the most beautiful voice, but she is so kind and very easy to work with! She made our ceremony so memorable with her help to coordinate the order of our ceremony and all of the music that was to be played. She did everything she could to help us! She was fantastic. I have gotten so many compliments on our wedding music thanks to her!! I wish I had my ceremony music on a disc so I could always listen to Heather Moran sing all the time! She was incredible! I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks Heather!!
Mr. and Mrs. Ennessy :)

Response from Heather Moran:

Thank you so much for the kind words, you are a stunning couple and not just on the outside;) I absolutely loved working with you and planning the ceremony music. May you have joy and happiness every moment you share for always....

Made the Night!

Heather and Gabriel were awesome! She worked with me from beginning to end on what I wanted as far as musical style and genre at my engagement party. The guests had a blast - and Heather was more than accommodating with regard to family toasts and making various announcements to our guests. We loved her so much that she'll be doing our wedding as well! Thank you Heather and Gabriel for a great night!

Wonderful experience from start to finish!

When first investigating musical entertainment for our event, Heather Moran (and band) came very highly recommended. I had not hired musicians before and was a bit apprehensive about the process. Heather was an absolute dream to work with as we were planning the event, and the performance was stellar. The music was fantastic and really made for a very classy evening. Clients were impressed, everyone had a great time. From start to finish, an absolutely wonderful experience - we will definitely be bringing them back for more events. Highly recommend! Thank you, Heather!

easy-to-work-with performer and great performance

I hired Heather Moran off a website, after hearing her demo, but without the benefit of seeing her perform live or even meeting her. She and I were able to speak on the phone and arranged most details via email. Even before our event, I felt comfortable with her.
On the night of our event, she and her band arrived on time (early) and really took care of themselves and their needs so I was free to attend to other party details.
Heather and her band are professional entertainers - that much is evident. She knew the right questions to ask before the event and knew how to handle the actual event, too, so that the volume level was well suited to conversation or for entertainment.
I have received a lot of positive feedback about our party and our great musical entertainment. I strongly recommend Heather Moran and her band.

Review by Pam B.

Heather and the boys in the band we great. We have already booked them again for next year's Christmas party. All our clients complimented the music. The band played at the right volume, enough to hear them but not so loud you couldn't talk. They are a great party band. And good looking to boot!

Since Heather did such an amazing job at our wedding, when we needed a singer for my mother's funeral I knew she was the one to go with. She went out of her way to make the ceremony memorable for all of us and her voice touched everyone that day. I'd recommend Heather for every type of event since her voice is absolutely beautiful.

It was a pleasure having Heather Moran at our Celebration event again this year. If we could we'd have her back every year, but we have to settle for every couple of years. She is wonderfully talented and a great to work with.

Heather Moran

Ms. Moran is blessed to be musically surrounded with some of Chicago’s top Jazz musicians on the scene today. She is perfect for your wedding, cocktail hour, private and/or corporate event. She is equally at home in any size venue.

Born and raised in Illinois, Ms. Moran has been performing for most of her life. She studied voice as a child at New Trier High School and Northwestern University in Illinois. As an adult, she studied opera at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pennsylvania, and the University
of Colorado. She eventually returned to Chicago to earn a BA in theater from Columbia College.

Over the past several years, Ms. Moran has divided her time between her two loves: acting and singing.

As an actor, Ms. Moran has worked with numerous theater companies in Chicago, but most extensively with the Factory Theater, a storefront community theater company in their eleventh season with over 100 all original productions under their belts. She is also a Second City alumna skilled in improvisational theater.

As a singer, Ms. Moran has performed in many settings: nightclubs, weddings, private and corporate functions, and most notably, on Navy Pier's two premiere dinner cruise ships, Mystic Blue and The Odyssey. Some venues she has appeared at include: San Francisco's Empire Plush Room, Drury Lane Water Tower, Katerina’s, Grant Park, Andy’s Jazz, Park West, The Acorn Theater in Michigan’s Three Oaks, Caf Luciano, The Field Museum, The Stonefire Restaurant, Tivoli, Tuscany-Wheeling, Webster’s Wine Bar, Magnum's Steakhouse, Davenport’s, Gold Star Sardine Bar, Martyr's, and Joy Blue. She just recently ended a 12-month engagement at Chicago Old Town’s wonderful Bistrot Margot and can be seen frequently performing at Katerina’s on Irving Park. She was also recently a regular performer at Tivoli Ristorante in West Chicago and frequently performs for the city of Chicago’s Cultural Affairs department.

Ms. Moran’s newest sensational Rosemary Clooney hit show, “Rosie, A Tribute...” is currently touring regionally. She is also a regular performer and many venues in NW Chicago suburbs, performing as contemporary duo with her guitarist.
