“The Moxie Band was absolutely incredible, and made our wedding night complete! I can’t find enough words to thank y’all for everything! The entire night was more than I ever could have dreamt of. Adam and I felt like we have known y’all forever… That’s how comfortable you made us feel! We received thousands of compliments and would choose you again in a heartbeat!”
Megan Raybuck, Bride, Little River Farms, September 17, 2016
“My name is Jason and I was the Groom at my wedding where we hired Moxie to play the reception. Let me first start off by saying when we first heard Moxie at a good friend’s wedding a couple years ago, we were instantly blown away. Moxie excels at providing the perfect music to create a positively vibed environment for the guests to enjoy, dance, and party! Quickly after our friends wedding, we asked for their information! My brother then went on to hire Moxie last year for his wedding and my goodness, everyone after the wedding (even a year later) kept saying “Your food was good, but MAN, That band was fantastic at the wedding!!.” There is nothing better than hearing that the entertainment was great at a wedding because most people spend a lot of resources going to someones wedding, and when they have a rocking time and not only celebrate the couples nuptials but also had fun – it is a win win! And let me tell you, when Moxie plays a wedding – everyone is dancing, even grandma! Naturally when we started planning our wedding, we would not settle for anything other than Moxie. Working with Moxie is a BREEZE! So not only are you getting amazing entertainment for your wedding, but the months before the wedding set up was very professional, organized, and you can tell that they have done this before. From the first dance songs, to the ballads, to the bruno mars party songs, to the rock and roll classics, every member Moxie is a virtuoso at their instrument. You’ve got top notch musicians armed with a professional and fun-loving attitude, ready to dynamically match your weddings vibe and create an excellent environment for you and your guests to enjoy the night; if you’ve got Moxie; you’ve got a hit. Also, Rich, the MC/Singer is fantastic at what he does – he keeps the crowd lively, provides information as its needed, and works with you prior to ensure he knows how to say all the names, knows the timeline, and does it all with a smile on his face.”
Jason Abdo, Groom, Little River Farms September 10, 2016
You guys were outstanding! Friends and family are still talking about the Moxie band. Thank you again for awesome entertainment!”
Mike Purdue, Father of the Bride, King Plow Arts Ctr., August 27 2016
“The Moxie band was one of the best decisions we made during the planning process! This was for many reasons – Rich, the band leader, was professional and responsive whenever I had questions – I always received an answer within days (unlike some of our other vendors who took weeks). He helped me so much and was always willing to work with me, even adding services just a few months before the wedding. On the day of our wedding, not only was I completely confident in Rich and The Moxie Band, we were blown away. We had seen them live, but we were shocked when we had people on the dance floor before dinner even started – a true sign of a great band! People couldn’t wait to dance. After dinner, the party had already started and we had relatives on the dance floor that we had never seen dance at a wedding. The day after we had so many compliments on what a great party and atmosphere there was and I give all the credit to The Moxie Band! Thank you for making our day incredible!”
Stephanie Colasante, bride, the Ritz-Carlton Atlanta, August 13, 2016
“We could not have asked for a better band play at our daughter’s wedding! You all were so much fun and played the songs for all ages to dance to, during the reception! And also lucky enough to enjoy you at Christmas time for my Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s Christmas party! Thanks so much!”
Robin Henderson, Mother of the Bride, the Barn at White Oaks, Dahlonega GA, July 30, 2016
“Dear Rich and the Moxie Band,
Wow! I must say we trusted God would lead us to you, and he did just that! You absolutely were the perfect band for us. I thank the Lord first because you were truly our God send. Planning a wedding is daunting task. With so many personalities involved in the decision process these days. We can’t thank you guys enough for making our daughter’s wedding on 7/9/16 in big canoe one of the most memorable nights of our lives. Roger and I are more than thrilled to have chosen you all to entertain our large crowd. The ceremony music and reception music was exactly what we’d hoped for and more. The dance floor during the reception was packed the entire night. Yes, it was truly an unforgettable night. Yes, we dreamed BIG! Amazingly, it was even more fun then we’d dreamed it would be. We know it was a once-in-a-lifetime “Best Day Ever” for Melissa and Alex. Although, we do believe God has more good days planned ahead, we are all still excited to get to relive in our minds some of this wonderful day when we watched their video. We also wanted to say in it to thank you for allowing Scott Meeder, (Alex’s uncle) to join in and play a few songs with the band. Not only are you all very gifted and talented singer/musicians. We loved the emotional connection we felt as we watched and danced with your band performing. We could see the real joy you all were feeling entertaining our friends and family. It felt like we were all one big family. We truly love the confidence your band shared with all of us with each song you played. This is why we chose a band to play in the first place. “Live” music is an art happening now that touches more than one dimension of our brains. We can never relive exactly the same life we just live today. With much prayer, hope and thankfulness we will find our peace in choosing to enjoy the next ride, looking ahead each new day. If we do look back to remember our past, we will only want to recall what has brought us joy. Please know you all were a huge part of our joyride on 7/9/16 and will forever be remembered in our hearts. You will always be the band be recommend. May God continue to bless you all, and may you always enjoy what you do that brings so much joy to others.
Thanks again, Kathy and Roger Moore, Mother and Father of the Bride.
Melissa and Alex Miller, the Bride and Groom, Big Canoe, July 9, 2016
“Dear Rich and Moxie,
You all are amazing! Katie and Ryan’s wedding reception was full of guests, dancing to your energetic and fantastic music! You kept every person on the dance floor with all types of music. Everyone kept telling us “How wonderful Moxie is, they are the BEST band!” You played all our favorite songs, and had our guests from 8 years to 93 years dancing to the beat. Uptown Funk was awesome and had everyone on the floor rocking! Thanks again for a magnificent evening of music, fun and dancing. You made Katie and Ryan’s reception marvelous!
Thanks so much for a fabulous evening, Moxie is THE best band!”
Kathy Erickson, Mother of the Bride, Capital City Club Downtown, June 25, 2016
“Rich, The Moxie Band exceeded our expectations at both events. You have done for us, my step daughter Caroline Davis Hughes reception on 11 – 1 – 14 and at our most recent event, my daughter Emily Cook McConnell’s reception! You are a joy to work with! Everyone associated with The Moxie Band is so professional, courteous, and of course, talented. As you know, the band makes the party! We could not have been more elated with your music at Emily and Alex’s reception. My younger daughter, Louise, is on the deck next. ( Not yet engaged, but headed in that direction). We will not set a date without making sure The Moxie Band is available that evening! Many thanks! Carlton Davis”
Carlton Davis, Mother of the Bride, the Piedmont Driving Club, June 18, 2016
“The Moxie Band got everyone on the dance floor and kept the party going. From the current music to 70s hits, there was something for everybody to enjoy!
Denise Spratley, Private Events Planner, The Cherokee Town Club, Father/Daughter Dance, June 10, 2016
“Thank you so much for making the wedding so joyous !!! We definitely needed you in the room. And thanks for going with the flow and working with my older daughter Shira in co ordinating . Your Jewish dances were great —– you got everybody on the floor ! Again THANK YOU! I really appreciated your expertise !!! You were the best Atlanta Band we ever had. The only other band we enjoyed was a klezmer type band imported from Cleveland. I look forward to seeing you at a Bar or Bat Mitzvah in 14-15 yrs. I wish you success and hope (if you’re interested) you’ve gotten into the bar/bat mitzvah circuit.”
Jacki Friedman, Mother Of The Bride, Lake Lanier Islands, June 5, 2016
“We would be happy to recommend you. Everyone complimented the band. The breaks were impeccable and you provided continuous music, a definite plus! I especially appreciate your flexibility when we negotiated the contract, letting us use the microphone at the ceremony and working with the groom and his father to serenade the bride. You all were great. Thanks so much!”
Elyse Guenther, Mother of the Bride, The Four Seasons Atlanta, May 28, 2016
“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! To the Moxie band for making our daughter’s wedding reception an incredible night. Your music is so high quality and your attitudes are very professional and kind. You helped this mother of the bride have a great night herself, knowing you had everything under control. We will be calling again for future clients – no doubt! Thank you again and God bless you.”
Jan Johnson, Mother of the Bride, Rainwater Conference Ctr., Valdosta, GA, May 27, 2016
“You can skimp on the food and skimp on the flowers. But, do not skimp on the band. My daughter’s wedding in Savannah this weekend was beautiful in all respects. However, The Moxie Band made it a real party and made people enjoy the reception all night. There were no empty space on the dance floor. The band members are all high energy and keep people on the dance floor all night. From beginning to end, Rich was a true professional and we received everything we wanted and bargained for. If you want to have a great wedding reception, call Rich and book the Moxie Band for your event. You will not regret it.”
Chris Phillips, Father of The bride, May 21, 2016 DeSoto Hilton, Savannah GA
“I cannot say enough good things about The Moxie Band and their leader, Rich. They absolutely MADE my wedding reception! From announcing us into the reception to getting absolutely everyone on the dance floor with the very first song they played, they were energetic, SO FUN and lively and so talented at what they do! Their music is outstanding and kept everyone on the dance floor the entire reception. We keep hearing that we had the best wedding people have been to and we owe it to the Moxie Band for creating such a fun and memorable wedding reception for us. They were a blast and I cannot recommend them enough!”
Morgan Stashick, Bride, Country Club Of The South, May 7, 2016
“We had the Moxie Band for our wedding and wow! They were absolutely amazing! Such great musicians and singing. Played everything we wanted and really made the night special! The dance floor was full the entire evening. I don’t think I ever left dance floor. So much fun and energy.! EVERYONE loved them. Thanks Moxie!”
Bride-Alison Thompson, Saint Ives Country Club, April 30, 2016
“We hired The Moxie Band for our daughter’s wedding. WOW what a great band. Professional, talented and reasonably priced. The Band makes the wedding and we hit the jackpot. We danced all night.”
Norma Schwartz, Mother of the Bride, Saint Ives Country Club, April 30, 2016
I wanted to thank you again for making our reception so much fun. Everyone was commenting how good the band was. They all loved your music. The dance floor was never empty. You were great 11 years ago, and you were great on Saturday night. I am so glad that could give us another wonderful night of music.
May God Bless, Linda”
Linda Leedham, Mother of the Bride, Atlanta National Golf Club April 9, 2016
You guys were awesome! Thanks for being the first class professional band that you were for my daughter Kellie 11 years ago.
Your band was center stage in making our celebration a fun and memorable event. All I can say is…WOW!
All the best to you and all your talented cohorts.
Gary Leedham, father of the Bride, Atlanta National Golf Club April 9, 2016
“If you want a band that is super easy to work with before the wedding, is great at playing emcee and entertaining, and also plays the BEST music and keeps the dance floor packed, then you need to chose Moxie Band! We had Moxie Band for my wedding on April 2nd. I hadn’t talked to Rich much until a few months before the wedding, since my mom was coordinating most everything since I was from out of town. When I did meet with him though, I was blown away! We had alot of request for the day (special mp3 songs, special requests for the band) and there wasn’t one thing he wasn’t 100% on board with!! It never took him longer than a couple of hours to get back with me, no matter the time/day I emailed or called him which I really appreciated! The day of the wedding we even changed some things around and he could not have been nicer or more accommodating! Every time I spoke to Moxie Band I was told and felt the same way – this was my day and they were going to make it the best day they could. And it was so true!! I had alot of expectations for the dance part of reception and I was blown away. Moxie Band was AWESOME! The dance floor was packed all night! They played special tribute songs that were requested by my dad that meant so much to him, and really kept the crowd going. I could not have picked a more perfect band. My mom loves motown, and asked for them to play some songs. They immediately progressed into some Motown hits!! My favorite thing about Moxie was how nice and easy to work with Rich (their main point of contact) was, how much FUN they were all night, and how great the music was. I would pick them again 100% and will if the situation ever calls for it!!!”
Abby Ahlers, The Bride, Ivy Hall, April 2, 2016
Email: “Everyone in the band was fantastic! I’ve made a few adjustments because my husband had a few “activities” for guests and rich was fabulous at helping him integrate the activities so the flow of the evening wasn’t interrupted. Everyone had a wonderful time with lots of positive comments about the band. Unfortunately, most of our guests were from out of town, but we would definitely recommend Moxie band and would hire them again in a minute! Loved it!!
Note:“Rich, your band is perfect! I would not change anything. Today, I received a thank you note from two friends. Each note talked about the fabulous band! I wish I had another daughter to be married as we would definitely have Moxie at the reception. Even the event coordinator at Atlanta national wrote me an email, and said that the Moxie band was a top-notch band. Don’t change a thing. Love your band.”
Linda Ahlers, Mother of the Bride, Ivy Hall At Roswell Mill, April 2, 2016
“Dear Moxie Band,
Amazing!! Thanks to all of you for your incredible performance at Laura and Jeff’s wedding. You had Summerour rockin’ and rollin’ – even the grandparents. (Loved the post, pictures and video on Facebook). People are still talking about the event and it wouldn’t have been nearly the fun without your music. Thank you for your performance and your professionalism – great combination. Hopefully, we will get to hear you play again soon and many thanks for helping me make Laura’s wedding dreams come true. Sincerely, Mary Cay Jernigan.”
Mary Cay Jernigan, Mother of the Bride, Summerour Studios, March 19, 2016

You were kind, attentive, and helpful in our planning, and the Moxie band far exceeded our expectations! It was a wonderful evening, and you and the Moxie band absolutely made the reception! So fun and engaging, and excellent musicians and vocals. It went by way to quickly! Thank you again for making our special event an awesome evening! Warm regards, Susan French.
PS all of our guests raved about the band!”
Susan French, Mother of the Bride, Roswell Historic Cottage, March 12, 2016

Caroline French, The Bride, Roswell Historic Cottage, March 12, 2016
“Rich, We got so many compliments on the party, many of which were directed your way! People loved Moxie’s energy, song selection, and overall vibe. We couldn’t have been happier. We’re SO glad and grateful you were our wedding band – and especially glad that you had a fun time, too!
Warmly, Melissa Schmidt”
Melissa Schmidt, Bride, The Stave Room, February 14, 2016
“The Moxie band was fabulous, and Rich was a pleasure to work with! They were respectable of the volume during our seated dinner, but kicked it up between courses so that everyone enjoyed the music and the dance floor was full throughout the entire evening. They played the perfect blend of all the music we requested, we look forward to having the Moxie band again in the future. A great night! Thanks!”
Kathryn Brown, Chairwoman, SECC Dinner Dance, Capital City Club Atlanta, February 13, 2016
“Rich, I just would like to express our appreciation for The Moxie Band at our wedding Sunday nite. You and your band were awesome and everyone and I do mean everyone had an awesome time. It was amazing and if you ever need a reference, please be sure to call Gail or me for one. The timing, the songs and the way you reacted with the crowd was just magical.
Again, thank you.”
Ron Chanin, Groom, Canoe Vinings GA, January 17, 2016
Letter: “We were so thrilled with your performance. Our reception had a fluidity because you were present orchestrating the agenda. I have already shared your info with Kristie Henderson, one of my bridesmaids. You were one of our favorite vendors for our wedding. Thanks for your hard work!”
Card: “Dear Rich and the Moxie band,
Thank you so much for making our wedding day so spectacular! We can’t tell you how many of our family and friends have told us that our wedding reception was one of the best they have attended.

Warm regards, Morgan and Katie Fish”

Andrea Smith, Emory Johns Creek Hospital Staff Party, The Standard Club, Johns Creek GA October 13, 2016
“Rich, It’s taken almost 2 weeks for our wedding craziness to subside, and I am finally finishing up a few remaining wedding tasks. One of these, an important one, is to let you know what a great job you and the rest of the Moxie band did at an Annelise and Brendan’s reception over at Ivy Hall. While the Roy clan is full of avid dancers, the Mowry bunch is not. It’s a serious testament to your abilities as entertainers that so many of us danced, and danced, and danced! We heard from many guests have very much they enjoyed the music and how wonderful they thought you were!
We always felt that only 3 things were important for the success of the reception – the food, the alcohol, and the music. You guys totally surpassed anything we could have hoped for on the music front.
Sincere thanks to you.
Please feel free to give my contact info out for references – so long as you keep an opening for us in case daughter # 2 gets married locally. Thanks again. Christina Mowry”
Christina Mowry, Mother of the Bride Ivy Hall at Roswell Mill, October 10, 2016
“I wouldn’t change anything! The Moxie band is Awesome! Everyone loved them, their energy and had the dance floor packed the entire night. Rich was courteous and helpful. A true professional. We would absolutely recommend The Moxie Band to everyone, and have been to anyone who needs a band for their wedding in the future.”

Thanks Rich – you and your band members are very talented and you rocked it!!! Thanks again!”

Letter: “All the music for the Prelude, processional, and recessional were well queued, and perfect. Many comments during the evening about “what a great band”. Everyone danced and had a great time! This was our last wedding, but I would definitely recommend them to friends.”
Donna Porter, Mother of the Bride, Lake Lanier Islands, September 12, 2015
Email: “Hi there,
Sorry I missed your call. We did receive the questionnaire and will get it back to you this week.
I thought you might be interested in a comment we had from a friend who is an opera lover and plays classical music on his grand piano – he said “What a great band.” He said this several times during the evening. He doesn’t dance, but he enjoyed the music. 🙂
We thought things went perfectly and Ashley was happy with all of it. (main objective) You did a splendid job with the prelude music and got everything right on during the processional as well. Dave and I both are thrilled with how it went and we thank you and your band for your professional performance the whole time. If we had any more weddings, we’d definitely hire you again, but alas, no more children to marry off. (Thank you, God). We would be happy to recommend you to friends.
Stay well, keep making that great music, and maybe we will meet again.
Donna and Dave Porter and Ashley and Kevin Skaggs”

Payne Wright, Groom, Dahlonega Market Place, July 4 2015
Rich, Just wanted to drop a note to say thank you again. It’s been over a year and friends are still raving about how much they loved the band at our wedding. My uncle is still basking in the glow of jamming on the drums along with the rest of The Moxie Band. The Moxie Band brought exactly what we were looking for in terms of energy, diversity of genre’s, and entertainment. Again, I think it’s quite a testament that this much time has passed and people still recognize how much you brought to the atmosphere at our wedding.
And as much as you deserve to be recognized for those contributions, equally, you deserve to be commended for all the work you did leading up to the wedding, from putting together playlists, advice on song choice, order of events throughout the night, even the advice regarding our choices for a venue had a tremendous impact. The experience you brought and the part you played in the orchestration of our wedding night will be forever recognized as a part of the reason it was so memorable for everyone.
Thank you again. Douglas M. Halka
“Dear Rich (and fellow Moxie band members), We cannot begin to adequately express our appreciation for the outstanding performance by the Moxie band. The night was still young and we were already receiving compliments. So many parts of the wedding are essential but can’t necessarily influence the outcome. A band can and you did! As you know, Turner (the bride) searched down Donna and Gwen to make sure they could stay on the dance floor as late as possible. The night was summed up by our son who told us he had never seen Turner have so much fun – ever! What else would we have asked for. Please know how grateful we are and that you will always have huge fans in Tunnel Hill, GA. Sincerely, Louis and Donna”
Louis and Donna Fordham, Father and Mother of the Bride, The Farm, Rocky Face GA June 13, 2015
(In regards to the email from Conrad Lauten, Father of the Bride below.)
Yeah! I love when clients listen and hire the BEST band ever!!!

Absolutely. But you must CAPITALIZE best and use a gazillion exclamation marks!
Best regards, Dawn Tibbles Director of Catering Chateau Elan
Rich: Just a quick note of thanks for the AWESOME performance the Moxie Band provided at Natalie’s wedding reception. I told her in the early planning stages of the wedding that the band would be the key to a memorable experience….and you proved me right!
Song choices and timing were perfect! I don’t think I’ve ever been to a reception with so much energy and participation for the WHOLE evening! I know it got on the edge of getting out of hand a couple of times but you were great at managing the crowd!
Thanks also for allowing Bobby and my brother to perform with you…I’m biased but I thought Bill’s rendition of “What I like about you” was memorable and the band’s versatility was amazing!
Thanks again for being a key part of helping to make this “the wedding of Natalie’s dreams”…her words not mine. That’s pretty special for a Dad and Mom to hear.
If you ever need a reference don’t hesitate to use us! Hope to see you guys perform again!
Conrad Lauten, Father of the Bride-Château Élan June 6, 2015
WOW is all I have to say. This is the 3rd time we have heard the Moxie band play at an event and it was the best ever. Our group LOVED every second, and danced ALL NIGHT LONG! Thanks so much for making our daughter’s wedding perfect!
Anne Duncan, Mother of the Bride, the Foundry at Puritan Mill, May 16, 2015
Rich, Thank you and The Moxie Band for fantastic music! The evening could not have been better and from the moment that I met you, I was reassured that you were a professional, flexible and knowledgeable person with whom to work. Except for my feet, I would love to be with The Moxie Band tonight! Hope to hear and see you soon. I give up on the weather and hope you did not put too much time into worrying about it.
The Best, Ginger
Letter “Rich and the band members were not only very professional but they were very much a part of the reception team in that they were vested in making the evening a success. Kudos to Rich as a communicator – very well done. All the guests loved the band and music and danced. You all contributed to a wonderful evening. I will never believe a weather forecast! I will recommend you most highly. Rich, you’re a good man and I wish you lived in my neighborhood! Thank you and thanks to all of the band members. Ginger Mize”
Ginger Mize, Mother of the Bride, The Pace House, April 25, 2015
“This band was fabulous! Not only is their music talent top notch, Rich was very helpful throughout this whole wedding process! He helped to calm my nerves a few days before the wedding and really cared about how I was feeling. They played all the favorites (old and new) and really catered the playlist to the songs I requested. My guests absolutely loved them and are still talking about it. They were such fun entertainment and I would definitely recommend them to anyone! We had only wished it could have lasted longer to enjoy it more! Music was fabulous, and everyone had a great time! Very happy with my band choice!”
Kaylan Myers, Bride, Primrose Cottage, April 17, 2015
“My husband and I got married in April of 2015 and having the Moxie Band perform at our reception was by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! They were INCREDIBLE! Not only were they extremely personable and great to work with, they are extraordinarily talented! They were very quick with responses when choosing the requested songs for First Dance/Father&Bride/Mother&Groom dances and were willing to learn a song we requested that they had not played before. From the moment they started playing, our guests hit the dance floor and did not get off until the last song! The number one thing we have heard from guests of our wedding, is how amazing our band was! The Moxie Band, played everything from the great “Oldies” to Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars! I truly believe they can perform any song and it be incredible. During one of their break, Richard, one of the lead vocalists took the time to come find us and make sure we were happy with all the songs and to ask if there was anything we wanted to hear that they hadn’t done yet. I can’t express how happy we were with them. The Moxie Band was a HUGE highlight of our entire wedding!”
Meghan Daniel, Bride, Glen Ella Springs Inn, April 11, 2015
“The Moxie Band was amazing. The music top of the line. The sound incredible. Rich and his group are professional in every way. I highly, highly recommend them and will do so to anyone needing a band. They are my only choice if I need a band again. Thank you for such an incredible night!”
Suzi Lewis, Mother of the Bride, Country Club of the South, March 21, 2015

|Our daughter’s wedding was October 11,2014. Moxie played for us at the Ritz Carlton of Atlanta. Moxie’s wide variety of music literally had all of our guests up on the dance floor! Rich and the band connected with our guests and many of us didn’t sit down the entire time they played. We have heard from countless number of friends that told us it was by far the best band they have heard at a wedding.

The event would not have been the same without. I remember at one point I was talking to some people in the back of the room when your were performing an Adele song and none of us even realized you were performing, we all thought it was the MP3 player and were taken aback when someone pointed out that you guys were performing live….. Also a special thank you for letting my uncle join you guys up there. A very special memory indeed.
And another very special thank you for making the event so special.
Best, Doug and Erin”

We used Moxie twice – for our two daughters weddings – and we will use them for our third daughter’s wedding. Love you Moxie!”

We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding the best day of our lives. You all were absolutely amazing! Our guests did not step off the dance floor and had an incredible night all because of your amazing ability to perform! If I could only recommend one of my vendors, it would absolutely be Moxie! Rich, you were such a pleasure to work with. Your responsiveness and thoughtfulness made our wedding planning process so much easier. It was such an ease to work with you.
And when I thought you all couldn’t get better, you agreed to learn our song “I choose you”. This was the highlight of our night! You sang it so beautifully even better than Sara Barellis herself! There are no words to express how thankful we are for the beautiful first dance and the entire night. Please use us as a reference if you ever need. We love you guys!!! Sincerely, Jill and Craig Wasilewsky “ Bride and Groom

“Great performance! Nothing short of perfect.”
Greg O’Sullivan, groom- Montaluce Winery September 14, 2013
“For me, choosing the perfect band was the most critical decision for the entire wedding — it was even more important than our venue, my dress or where we went for our honeymoon! Fortunately, Moxie Band absolutely delivered above and beyond my wildest dreams!
For starters, Rich is simply amazing. He is the consummate professional and does his utmost to understand all of the details for the big day so that everything works seamlessly. We had so many special requests and Rich honored every single one of them with sincere commitment.
If you want to host a wedding where the guests are literally so busy dancing they can’t be bothered to eat or drink, this is your band! Even family friends of ours who NEVER dance were working it on the dance floor! Months later, we still have friends commenting on how great the band was, how much they loved the music and how great the MC (Rich) was at keeping everyone engaged.
One really unique thing about Moxie Band is that every single member is really, REALLY talented! Most not only play an instrument but are also true vocal soloists in their own right, so they can cover a diverse range of material and always have a really full sound with lots of harmonies. They also have tons of energy and clearly love performing together.
However, perhaps the most remarkable thing about Moxie Band is that, even though they’re good enough that you would go to a show just to see them perform, they also know how and when to blend into the background and let the bridal party, parents and bride and groom take focus.
One of my favorite photos from our wedding is from our last dance at the end of the night (we stayed past 1am). The dance floor is still packed and everyone, young and old, has a huge smile on their face. I think it’s really rare to find a candid picture with more than 20 people in it where every single person looks so genuinely happy, and it’s all because they were having such a great time with Moxie Band!
Kathleen Voboril, Bride – The Four Seasons Atlanta August 17, 2013
“We would ABSOLUTELY recommend the Moxie band to others – which I think is the highest compliment we could bestow. Rich was great to walk through the entire planning process and the event couldn’t have gone better. We have received SO many band compliments from all of our friends who had a blast dancing the night away!”
Mary Ann Bender Mother of the Bride, The Atlanta History Center August 10, 2013

“Rich, I apologize for my delay in responding to your kind note and request for feedback in connection with The Moxie Bands superb performance at Charlotte and Stanton’s wedding. Without equivocation, the band’s presence and music struck the perfect notes in every respect. You covered every genre of our eclectic play sheet artfully: the mellower tunes provided a charming backdrop to the early hours of the reception, and it goes without saying that when you cranked it up later on, the result was overflow dancing with an infectious joy that was everything we as a party givers were hoping would happen.
Beyond the music, as I indicated, your personal touch and the engagement of the other members of the band were warm and compelling, and greatly contributed to the celebration. We appreciated your coordination of the “events”: the first dance, toasts, etc., as well as the entertaining breaks. You struck just the right tone in the introduction and the performance. And many, many of our guests commented to complement appreciatively not only your excellent playing, but more importantly your high level of engagement and the fact that, by all appearances, you all were having a very good time as well; our crowd certainly fed off that.
So again, thank you and the band for bringing and sharing your talent, showmanship and commitment to making it a joyous affair. Thanks in large part to you, a splendid time was had by all”.
Jeffrey Baxter Father of the Bride Summerour Studios March 31, 2012
“The Moxie Band played for our daughter’s wedding reception on March 17, 2012. They were superb! There was constant dance music of the highest quality. They were enthusiastic without being intrusive. The variety was amazing; the musicianship was palpable; and the transitions were seamless. They perceived quickly what would get the crowd on their feet. Then the flow and tempo of the songs made people reluctant to leave the dance floor. They have our highest recommendation. Again thanks for making our daughter’s wedding reception so very special.”

(Wedding Blog) “We had heard The Moxie Band several years ago at a friend’s wedding. My daughter saved their business card and said whenever she became engaged, she wanted Moxie to play at her wedding reception. Several years passed, and when she became engaged, she ran up to her room and produced Moxie’s business card. The Moxie Band just entertained 250 people at our daughter’s reception and everyone loved them!! All ages were up on their feet dancing. I think the party could have gone on well into the wee hours of the morning, if our guests had had their say. Everyone wanted to know who was this band, where did we find them, where they were from….and HOW GOOD THEY WERE!! If you want to have a fun reception with everybody dancing….book MOXIE….”
(Letter) “Your slogan “the Life of the Party” is so true! Everyone at the reception couldn’t stop telling me how wonderful Moxie was! I truly believe they would be kept dancing into the wee hours if Moxie continued to play. All ages love them! Thanks!”

I can not tell you how many praises I got on the band and how fun our reception was.

(Letter); “From our initial booking, until our goodbyes at the end of the evening, The Moxie band met (and exceeded) our every expectation! Everyone was on the dance floor -even the avowed “non–dancers”. What a joyous occasion. We could not have imagined a better band for our daughter’s most special day. Thank you! Kathy Farrell

Believe me, we would call you immediately for an occasion and pass on your name to anyone looking for a wonderful band…and great people to work with and trust to run the evening. You made the entire reception flow so smoothly. I had to laugh when you first invited everyone to come out and dance and the entire floor was full immediately…no shy crowd that night!
I must say that my husband and I gauge the success of a reception by the crowd on the dance floor and you certainly made our night a success. Christine and David were flying with joy and I have been innundated with calls about the good time had by all.
Thank you! Thank you!
Blessings, Kathy and Mike (and Christine and Dave)”
Kathy Farrell Mother of the Bride JW Marriott May 28, 2011
“Rich: You and Moxie did it again! What a blast! With all the hundreds of details and possible worries in planning a wedding, worrying about the band was not one of mine thanks to Moxie. Our guests loved the music and all of the energy you brought to the room. It was a wonderful way for the Mother of the Bride to end the wedding weekend to dance the night away to Moxie! Thank you also for allowing Dick to play with the band — and twice this time! We are going to hold you to your promise to have “Sex on Fire” for the next time! It was such a treat for our firm to see Dick playing the drums (many of them for the first time). It was later in the evening when he played with you for our wedding reception so most of them missed it. I understand you also were generous enough to allow Damian to sing — I missed it somehow. I hope to see it on video but Ashley and Aldan were most appreciative for that opportunity for him. Moxie is the best! Thanks again for a great night!”
Jennifer Carothers Mother of the Bride St. Regis Atlanta Hotel May 22, 2011

One of our friends, who plays in a band himself, paid the group the ultimate compliment by telling Teresa and me how good you guys were. He said he never likes the bands when he goes to parties. Meredith and John had the time of their lives Saturday night — a night they will never forget. Thanks for helping to make it so very special. We will gladly share your name with others! Regards, Robert”
Robert Albin Father of the Bride Primrose Cottage April 16, 2011 “Absolutely

They work with our wedding venues noise ordinance to make sure we would have a rock and party! The band members dressed appropriately and bandleader arranged the event well. We would recommend Moxie to anyone! Moxie Rocks!

Barbara Anderson, Mother of the Bride Druid Hills Golf Club November 1, 2010
“One of my greatest concerns in planning a wedding was hiring the band without the bride and groom, since they lived out of town. Your band exceeded our expectations and the music was great and the room was full of energy from the band. Many people raved about the band. My youngest daughter ran up to me after you were playing for a short while and said “they are awesome!” Your music worked well for all the generations in the room. The dance floor was full from beginning until the end. We were very impressed with how quickly you would return our phone calls. Overall — you were wonderful. We would recommend you highly. Loved when the guitarist got on the dance floor with my three-year-old great-nephew! Fabulous!”
Judy Schancupp Mother of the Bride Westin Perimeter Hotel October 23, 2010
“You are awesome!!! Feel free to list me as a reference any time. ”
Lynne Riley Johns Creek City Mayors Ball Atlanta Athletic Club October 22, 2010
“I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful the Moxie band was. They by far exceeded all of our expectations and made our wedding a party to remember. Rich and the band were so easy to work with and made sure our night went smoothly. Thank you so much!”
Katelyn Hunt, Bride The Ravinia Club September 18, 2010
“Dear Rich: Thank you so, so very much for the fabulous job you and your crew did in helping us entertain our family and friends upon the occasion of our daughter, Allison Cobb (now Barrett)’s wedding this past weekend. I’m sorry to be a few days before thanking you. I had no idea what a toll such an event would take on my old body — but although we have all turned back into pumpkins, we are gradually coming back to life!
Your group was as wonderful as Debra Wilson of the Capital City Club had said when she so highly recommended you and we had so many wonderful comments about how great the band was!
I hope that if our second daughter ever marries that we will have the pleasure of being able to hire you again and that you will be available. Thank you again so very, very much!!!”
Margaret Cobb, Mother of the Bride Capital City Club Downtown September 11, 2010
(E-mail) “Hi Rich! We just got back from Aruba on Friday. We had a WONDERFUL time, but are glad to be back in the country and back in touch with family and friends 🙂
Thank you SO much for all you did on September 4. It was a truly magical day for us, and much of that credit goes to Moxie. I have added reviews on many of the websites you sent, and I will drop the evaluation you sent in the mail today.
Thank you again for your commitment to us to make our wedding day special. All my “special request songs” were PERFECT and definitely had the effect I anticipated. We have had a few friends ask about your services (Jennifer and Trevor, most recently). I hope you all can make something work out! They loved your performance.” Ali Green
(Letter) “Moxie was not only the perfect complement to our wedding reception, but they flawlessly kept the energy of the evening moving from beginning to end. Rich was VERY thorough during the planning process and was very organized and pleasant to work with. He was also amazingly accommodating during the wedding. He subtly would check in with me and my family to ensure they were meeting our expectations. They, in fact, exceeded our expectations.
Kristin’s voice was amazing and she sang our first dance song better than I have ever heard it. It was magical! I also requested several songs to be played throughout the night — songs that I knew meant a lot to my friends and family. Rich successfully incorporated each and every song at the absolute perfect time in the play list! Everyone had a blast and I’ve already had friends ask me for Moxie’s information for their events! Moxie, thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day PERFECT!!!!”
Ali Green; Bride Lake Lanier Islands September 4, 2010
“Y’all were awesome! You could not have been more perfect for us! A band can make or break the party and you helped make it! Thanks again.”
Pam Jernigan Mother of the Bride Chastain Horse Park August 28 2010
“The Moxie band did an excellent job at my daughter’s wedding. The guests dance than entire time and had a great time! The band members were so very professional and entertaining. All ages love the song choices which were all good dance songs. I have already recommended the band to a friend! I hope to use Moxie when my son gets married.”
Peggy Smith Mother of the Bride Flint Hill, Norcross August 21, 2010
“Y’all were fantastic! Our guests enjoyed dancing the night away and my new wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the sound of our first dance song. Thank you so much for your professionalism and communication before and during the wedding.”
Chip Tinsley Groom The Cherokee Town Club August 14, 2010
“Wow indeed!!! Without great music, it isn’t a party, and you guys were absolutely the best we’ve EVER heard. Thank you so much for everything – our guests couldn’t stop raving about you guys, and we can’t wait to find an excuse to hire you again!!! Relatives and friends who NEVER dance at weddings were on their feet, and for a bunch of non-Jews, you do a really mean Hora!!! (Even for Jews you do a mean Hora!). I’m just sorry my voice was so worn out for I’m Yours – I hope I didn’t ruin other grooms chances at singing with you in the future (you don’t record shows, do you? I’m curious!). We will be sure to send photos after the honeymoon, and please be sure to thank everyone for me again. You guys were perfect and I only wish I could have tipped more. You guys rock!!!!!!!Love, Adam & Megan”
Adam and Megan Friedlander, Groom and Bride 200 Peachtree St. August 1, 2010
“Every girl dreams of her wedding day — I dreamed of my wedding band. I wanted all of our guests to enjoy the music and dance the night away, AND THEY DID! It has been a month since the wedding and everyone is still talking about how wonderful you guys were! And some of our guests are hard to please – YOU BLEW THEM AWAY! I just cannot thank you enough for making my wedding day absolutely unforgettable! Our family has been talking about booking you for a random “Saturday night” simply to enjoy your incredible talents! Thank you also for being so accommodating to our time changes of cake cutting and bouquet toss. We had the time of our lives and oh it all to YOU !!!! We have talked about you all over town and will continue to spread the good news! Thank you again for all you did to make our wedding so wonderful !!!! Cheers!”
Hope and Ryan Builthouse, Bride and Groom The Abby July 10, 2010
“By far the best band I have ever seen perform. Thank you all very much for everything you did for Elizabeth and I. Also, thank you for taking the time to learn our first dance! Our guests are still buzzing about how great the band was. Thank you very much!”
Brent Macy Groom The Emory Conference Center July 3, 2010
“Amazing!!! Moxie was the perfect band for our wedding! You all were amazing! We had 220 guests and 215 guests were dancing the entire night. The song selection was perfect — great dinner music, perfect music to get the party going (cross generational) and Midway through the night you all turned it up and we danced/rock the night away. You were an absolute pleasure to work with. The entire band was extremely professional and a joy to work with. Throughout the entire night Rich would check in with my husband and me just to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. If I had two words to describe the Moxie band it would be:
1). Entertaining! They kept our guests entertained throughout the entire evening. I had no less than 50 people tell us on the night of our wedding that Moxie was the best wedding band they had ever heard!!!
2). Classy! For as fun and upbeat as the Moxie band members are classy! So professional and respectful at all times to all guests. I would highly recommend Moxie for any event! Thank you!”
Leslie Hallin Nesladge Bride The Westin Buckhead June 26, 2010
“Rich, The Moxie Band was phenomenal! I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed your performance. Our guests are still raving about the evening. Thank you so much! And you all did Rod Stewart better than he can these days!
Joaquin Carbonell Groom The Mansion on Peachtree June 19, 2010
“Rich! I am so bad about getting back to my wedding vendors… I was just cleaning my email and saw this email. I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for playing at our wedding! You were fantastic and we had so many compliments on your band. Even Ryan’s dad, Tommy, said he danced 2 songs and said the singers were fantastic (that says a lot because he never dances!). Anyways, we had such a great time and if you need me to give a recommendation for you, I’d love to.
I hope you are doing well since we saw you and thank you, thank you, thank you! Best,
Amy Rooney Bowden” Bride Park Tavern tent Piedmont Park June 12, 2010
“Thank you, thank you, thank you for a perfect evening of music for our wedding. Everyone loved your band and as you saw could not stop dancing. You all are so nice and we appreciate your talents — each of you.”
Debbie Heotaky, Mother of Groom Primrose Cottage June 6, 2010
“Rich, now that we are back from the honeymoon and back to reality, we wanted to thank you for truly making our reception a blast! Everyone had so much fun and still talking about how great you all were! You all are so talented and entertained every generation there. We are so happy that we chose you guys… you really rocked the Ritz! 🙂 Thanks again and we hope to see you all again!”
MacKenzie and Aaron Hahler, Bride and Groom Ritz-Carlton Atlanta May 29, 2010
“Hey Rich, It was MY PLEASURE to work with you and the Moxie band. You guys did an outstanding job. I always love working with you because I know that the entertainment will be top notch and the guests will have a fantastic time. You remain on my Preferred Vendor List and I will certainly refer any clients possible to you.
Thanks again for all of your assistance!! Hope to see you again soon!”

“Thank you, Rich. The band was just great – lots of compliments and the guests truly enjoyed the music and so did we!!! I look forward to receiving the evaluation and hope to have the opportunity to recommend you in the future. Thank you for your professionalism and for your artistic talents. It was a perfect evening for us, for our family, and most of all for MacKenzie and Aaron.”
Bob and Shelby Crain, parents of the bride Ritz-Carlton Atlanta May 29, 2010
“The Moxie Band was absolutely perfect! My wedding reception was everything that I had ever dreamed of, and it’s because of The Moxie Band. Not only was the music phenomenal, but Rich and the band were so engaging and entertaining! I have heard more post wedding comments about how incredible our band was more than anything else! Thank you for everything!”
Jenny Whitt, Bride The Atlanta History Center May 24, 2010
” Y’all were FABULOUS! I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about Moxie and how all of my friends want y’all at their weddings! 🙂 I seriously hit the jackpot with y’all, and y’all were truly perfect! Thanks again plus a million for all of the fun! I’m so thankful for y’all and will be sending MANY referrals your way! I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!”
Jenny Whitt, bride Atlanta History Center Overlook Ballroom May 22, 2010
Wow!!! I think we can safely say from us and all of our guests that Moxie Band was the best wedding band anyone had heard in quite some time. You guys blew the roof off the place. Lindsey and I were just so happy in how everything turned out and how easy you guys were to work with. We felt that the night went perfectly. The songs you started with were just right to give everyone time to eat and socialize, but also gave the kids something to dance to, not to mention that my grandfather loved the standards. Then, when you guys kicked it up a notch, you really kicked it up! We have to say that we were most excited to see that you guys were able to play Born to Be Wild while my friend Chad sang. He loved it! After that it was just an incredible amount of fun. Closing out to Walking on Sunshine was a great suggestion and the second line to The Saints worked fantastically. Thanks again for everything, for checking in with us throughout the party, and for being so accommodating. We had a truly fantastic time!
Take care and we’ll forward you some pictures when we get them back.
Lindsey and Dan Davis, Bride and Groom Callanwolde Fine Arts Center May 1, 2010
“We have gotten so many compliments on the music at our wedding! Moxie really went above and beyond to make our whole evening fun and relaxed. They were so complementary of everything and a breeze and a joy to work with! I could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you!”
Megan Croley, Bride The Ritz-Carlton Atlanta April 24, 2010
“You guys were amazing! Everyone enjoyed themselves and didn’t want the music to end. We will definitely pass your name on to others!”
Kurt Hennek, Groom Naylor Hall April 10, 2010
“Rich, we had so many compliments on your band, and your self. We had a group of dancers and non-dancers, but please know even the non-dancers loved hearing you. You also helped us keep the evening going which was an additional benefit. You were the easiest part of our wedding to work with. Thank you, thank you!”
Debbie Riney, Bride The Wimbish House March 27, 2010
“I agonized over which band to choose for my recent wedding reception, and after interviewing / doing cost comparison / viewing demos and websites of all sorts of Atlanta-area bands, my husband and I agreed on Moxie. I am glad I did so much research because it paid off: Moxie was exactly what we had hoped for at our reception. The band members clearly were having a good time; they were all smiles the whole time. They played fantastic music and had our guests dancing all night. I have had so many compliments on the band, and I am not surprised; they really were a highlight of an incredible evening.
Two things that I liked about Moxie band BEFORE I heard them play were 1. Rich, the band leader, heads up Axtell Productions, which has other musicians / entertainers, so we were able to get our ceremony and reception music through one company and 2. Rich was extremely professional and personable. He has all of his brides fill out a thorough form with their musical preferences / specific songs to play (or not play), and Moxie’s performance stayed true to our requests. He also sent a note in the mail congratulating my husband and me on a beautiful wedding and thanking us for our business. Not many businesses take the time to hand-write notes to their clients, and I think that this is highly indicative of the type of experience you can expect with Moxie.”
So, after all the research I did on Atlanta-area wedding bands and after having seen Moxie’s performance, I can tell you that this is a professional, tasteful but fun, talented group that will not disappoint. I am so glad they were the band I chose for my reception. ” Jeanette Smith, Bride The Georgia Club March 26, 2010
“Rich was wonderful to work with on this event. His prompt responses to the e-mail coming from two directions -Rome Georgia and Tamuning, Guam were equally as coordinated. The band, “the Moxie band” was excellent. We are still receiving positive comments from friends about how great they were. Thanks!”
Sharon Vaughn, Mother of the Bride Lambert Place March 17, 2010
“Choosing The Moxie Band was one of the best choices I made during our wedding planning. Rich was such a pleasure to work with and never one had such a great time dancing the night away. Spencer and I can’t thank you all enough for choosing the perfect songs and helping us make our wedding day a day we will never forget. Thank you!!!”
Amanda Tatman, Bride The Four Seasons January 9, 2010
“Thank you for your amazing performance at our wedding. Your female vocalist is definitely a must-have in your performance! I have never seen my parents dance in your performance afforded me this opportunity. You are Totally the BEST wedding band! Every band member has extremely musical talent and put on a great show for all ages! You made our wedding not only memorable for us, but all of our family and friends as well. Everyone kept telling us how wonderful you were. Thank you again for making our special day even more special! We would recommend you to anyone looking to make their event spectacular.”
