    They’ve played for President Barack Obama’s Inaugural.  They have performed for Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.  They have played for the President of Nigeria and political figures and celebrities from around the globe.  They have played for Eli Manning’s wedding, Ted Turner and Julius Erving.  They have played for President Donald Trump’s New Year’s Eve Party for the past thirteen years…and now the Number One Party Band in the Nation is back again to play for the twelfth time at your Kingsport Chamber Annual Dinner!


    Voted the Nation’s Number One Corporate and Private Party Band, Party on the Moon custom tailors music, choreography, state-of-the-art production and entertainment to spectacular specifications.  Based in Atlanta, the award-winning band performs 70s, 80s, 90s, current dance, pop, rock, classic rock, disco, funk, swing, R&B, Motown and new country music.


    Party on the Moon performs world-wide for millionaires, celebrities, global company CEOs, top sales executives, discerning brides and national and local philanthropists – even at the Inaugural Ball!  But no matter who their clients are, Party on the Moon’s goal is always the same: create the perfect party.  The band always performs to create fun, memorable event experiences.  The musicians are world-class, the gorgeous female vocalists top-notch, and the lighting, choreography and sound state-of-the-art.  So, if you want to launch a party that will simply be OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD…book PARTY ON THE MOON!


    The band’s non-stop, high-energy performances always leave audiences craving for more.  Party on the Moon was such a huge hit that President Donald Trump requested the band return again for the thirteenth consecutive year to perform a five-hour show at his personal New Year’s Eve party at Mar-A-Lago.  “The band (Party on the Moon) is spectacular,” Trump said.  “This is the best New Year’s Eve we have ever had at Mar-A-Lago.” 


    The HalfMoon TRIO features Mark, Big Papa and Tyrone, (drums, piano and bass), with a repertoire spanning almost every genre of music. 


    The Higher Power Choir, voices of inspirational pop, features world-class vocals and a wide-ranging musical repertoire.


    With more than 300 album and CD credits collectively, the four-piece FullMoon HORNS are well rehearsed, disciplined and play the arrangements you remember.  Working with superstar entertainers is not new to Party on the Moon.  Their long list of outstanding recording credits include Maroon 5, Carrie Underwood, Diana Ross, Peabo Bryson, Gladys Knight, Roberta Flack, Natalie Cole and Francine Reed as well as tours and performances with Sly & the Family Stone, Alicia Bridges and Martha Reeves and The Vandellas.


    The band has performed with some of the best, including Journey, Prince, James Brown, Huey Lewis, Three Dog Night, The O’Jays, Peabo Bryson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Temptations and Bob Seger.


    Party on the Moon was founded by musician and entertainer Dennis Smith, who still serves as the band’s music director.  Smith has been featured in American Entertainment magazine.
