We are still looking for archival content to add. If you were a member of The Moonliters, and have some photos, recordings, or videos to contribute from your time in the band, please get in touch with us. We'd love to hear from you again!

The Moonliters are very excited to announce that we will be performing at Mill Lake for the 2019 Mill Lake Concert Series.
Although the grass at the park isn't great for dancing, for all you big band enthusiasts out there, this is a great opportunity to see and hear an authentic big band, playing the original charts.
If you love this style of music, come on out and join us for a couple of hours of toe-tapping, chair-dancing fun. And if you're really adventurous, you can always try dancing in the grass.
Don't forget your lawn chairs!
Mark your calendars. More details to follow. Tickets will be available online soon.
