About this Act

There is a wealth of experience within the band with the founding members having played together for the last ten years. Within these ten years, the band has enjoyed a lot of success in not only the pub/club/function area but in writing and recording original material. This has involved two live radio appearances, performances at the Tyne Journal Theatre and The 02 Academy, even recently the band have been writing and recording music for an Australian modeling agency.

The Moonstones are a very versatile band and can adapt to most situations for example, the band was booked to play a twenty minute set at a charity event at Cellar 21, South Shields, on a bill with four other acts. When all of the other acts never turned up The Moonstones played for over two hours non stop!

The Moonstones are very reliable and competitively priced, the band genuinely play for enjoyment and you will find few competitively priced function bands in the North East and the UK.
