Why "5 Guys Named Moe"? ... there's 13 people in the band!
With lyrics like "who's the greatest band around?" and "who makes the cats jump up and down?" 5 Guys Named Moe was originally named after the 1943 hit song by Louis Jordan and started out as a 5-piece in 1984. Over the last twenty-seven years however, the band has grown into a slammin' 11-piece show band that is as much fun to watch as it is to listen and dance to! 5 Guys Named Moe is patterned after the larger, visually creative bands of the 1960’s which used horn sections and back-up vocalists. The resulting full sound—combined with a variety of dynamic lead vocalists and their unique visual energy—sets 5 Guys Named Moe apart from other dance bands and can best be described as the “Ultimate Dance and Show Band”.
A 5 Guys Named Moe performance includes:
Highlights of our variety show feature rock and soul hits from the '60s...dance to hits by Aretha Franklin, The Supremes, The O'Jays, The Temptations and more! Later, it’s back to the 70’s for a funky retro soul and disco set with hits by Al Green, Donna Summer, KC & The Sunshine Band and many more! Also featured are some of your favorite '60s, '70s, '80s rock, funk and horn band hits by groups like The Jackson 5, Chicago, Tower of Power, Michael Jackson and Earth, Wind & Fire. Other options include a full variety show which is a little bit of everything from the 60’s to the 80’s and beyond as well as a full set of easy listening jazzy standards—perfect for a dinner set. 5 Guys Named Moe has something for EVERYONE and is your perfect entertainment package for events such as corporate parties, conventions, class reunions, fairs, festivals, concerts and wedding receptions.
