Moxie plays a tasty selection of dance-oriented R&B, soul, funk, rock and beach music that everyone knows and loves. They are the perfect band for weddings, corporate and private parties, festivals, and clubs – wherever the goal is to get people on their feet dancing and having a great time. These five veteran musicians are professional and easy to work with to meet the needs of the client and the event. Moxie's performance is family-friendly and packed with songs that people will want to sing along with, from 60s and 70s classics to recent hits. Featuring a dynamic female vocalist, 3-part harmonies and tight musical arrangements, Moxie's sound gets the party going from the very first song.
We finished the second year hiring Moxie to play for our community event. Residents in our community love Moxie. Their musicianship is excellent, voices are superb, but more important, their spirit and wonderful, fun, cheerful, family atmosphere. Their song selection, a combination of 70's Funk, Motown, and Oldies tunes, creates the perfect atmosphere for entertainment and/or dancing. I can't say enough good about Moxie. I'd give them six stars--but there's only five above. So, consider this a Six (6) Star Rating! Now, give them a call. You'll not regret it!
We hired Moxie for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party, and they did not disappoint. They were amazing! Everyone at the party commented how great the band was, and they got people to the dance floor. They have a big sound with a Saxophone, keyboard, drums, bass, guitar, lead singer they knew how to control the volume so it was perfect for our inside venue. They were professional, talented, and a crowd pleaser! If you are looking to make your event memorable, this is the band!
Everyone loved them. We had a concert in the park and they were very energetic!! Great vocal skills and song list. We will have them again!
I don't have words to describe the excellence of our experience, not only in music, but with the heart that we experienced with Moxie. Each member of the band seemed delighted to be with us, and that bubbled over onto the people who attended. On this HOT June afternoon, these men and women played their hearts out, smiling, laughing and throwing their excellent music and joy all over the crowd.
When I came into the office on Monday morning, the first words from the staff was, "WE'VE GOT TO GET THEM BACK!" And so, if they're willing, we certainly are.
Thanks to the band members in Moxie for providing a wonderful day for our residents at the City of Albemarle Dept. of Public Housing. The day, thanks to you, was perfect!
