This Houston Party Band Totally Rocks!

We’d like to take a moment to introduce you to The Moment, a Houston party band with a very special gift for turning wedding receptions into totally unforgettable dance-all-night bashes!!

Heading up a nine-piece outfit of accomplished, versatile musicians who truly love what they do, Scott Sofer is a master MC and an expert at “reading the room.” Not only will this amazing Houston party band get your guests on their feet, but they’ll take them through a journey of fun, from first introductions to last waltz (or rhumba, or boogie, or electric slide…you get the picture!). We can’t say enough good stuff about this superb wedding band, who can shift seamlessly from Queen to Daft Punk to Al Green and countless other beloved artists, all while making every guest feel comfortable, energized and eager for more! This is NOT your mother’s party band, friends. The Moment brings a club gig experience to your big day, in the absolute coolest way. Give them a call or email them to schedule a consultation, and find out more about who they are, what they do, and how they can ensure that your guests will be talking about your wedding for years to come. And make sure to tell them you found them at Weddings in Houston!
