“Miss Myra and the Moonshiners absolutely made our dance event weekend! Their rippin' horn section and dynamic bandleader/vocalist really wowed us. Their repertoire pleases both jazz newcomers and the devout enthusiasts. It's hard to find a band that's as revelrous about jazz as dancers are. It's often said that swing jazz bands "have it" or don't-- Miss Myra and the Moonshiners "have it"!"
-Penn State University, State College, PA
“Miss Myra and the Moonshiners MADE our event! The professionalism the performers showed was admirable all the while remaining fun and upbeat. During their breaks they interacted with our guests which made the night even better. They are lovely people and definitely know how to create a fun atmosphere. Our company hired them for our Roaring ‘20’s themed holiday party. From their sound to their outfits to their attitudes everything was on point! Miss Myra’s voice transcends you to a different time. The musicians were incredibly talented and the variety of instruments up on stage made for an unforgettable sound and experience. I would recommend this group to anyone looking for an incredible, respectful, and professional group. Just be sure to wear comfy shoes to your next event because their music will have you on your feet dancing the night away!”
