"Mia and the Moon performed at our function in the King Power Stadium. They were nothing less than outstanding. We had a complete mix of young and older guests, Laura and Maryanne catered for all genres of music. An absolutely mesmerising set of acoustic bliss.
We can't thank you enough.
I will be recommending these girls to many for a long time to come. Just brilliant."

"""Mia and the Moon created a fantastic atmosphere at our 2017 New Year’s Eve event. They played different music accordingly, mimicking the reaction of the crowd, meaning everyone was up and dancing all night, just as we had hoped for. The band went above and beyond our expectations; during a meeting with Laura I happened to mention a few of our pre-booked guests had a real love for ABBA, to which Laura told me they didn’t cover ABBA but were willing to learn some just for us, and sure enough they did, and it was fabulous. The band also left us one of their CD’s with their original songs on them which we have played since in the pub and have had many people ask about the music. Over all, we were super grateful and impressed with Mia and the Moon, they created an amazing atmosphere that we couldn’t have achieved without them and made this New Year’s one of the Hotels most successful yet. We have had numerous customers thank us for such a great evening and a huge part of that was down to be band being as wonderful as they were. I would recommend Mia and the Moon to anyone looking for a unique cover band with an amazing style or for their even own music which is also fantastic, to create a great party atmosphere."""

We had Mia and the moon performing for us at our wedding at skylark farm. I have got to say that I was so overwhelmed with how incredibly beautiful they sounded! They are like angels who put their heart and soul into every performance. They dedicated songs to me and my mum and of and my husband as well as letting me sing with them at the end. I wish I asked them to perform in the evening too because of how incredible they are. I would strongly recommend them and can't wait to see them perform again!

"What a faboulous duo: Plus 1 on the Cajan drum box.
When they started playing I was with a friend who is also a very talented musician and was blown away with how good they were. Beautiful voices, very tight and clearly zoned in on their performance.
They played a fabulous set of selected music (from there huge set list) and really made eavry song their own, of which some were. Many of our guests said we should have had them playing later as opposed to before, during and after our meal. I thoroughly recommend them for any party or gathering.
Ps- Incredibly easy to book and sort out for the gig and Laura is fabulous to work with"
Jo Booth• July 14, 2017
Mia and the Moon were absolutely incredible. Walking down the aisle hearing their beautiful voices is a moment I will never forget. They have been professional from start to finish and we would recommend them for any wedding or any event. Mia and the Moon, wow, wow, wow, we cannot thank you enough XX
Emilie Moslard• Sept. 23, 2016

Many of our guests were impressed. Thanks a lot to both of them !"
