How the Stars Aligned


About 10 years ago, Musician Dennis Smith recognized the need for high-end, but affordable entertainment that delivered as much fun as celebrity entertainment on a local level. And he knew of great national talent that would welcome the opportunity. So, he put the two together and joined forces with Ed Duncan, East Coast Entertainment’s senior partner – who advised they create a band with 13 pieces (something no other band in the southeast had) – and the culmination was Party on the Moon.

Party on the Moon quickly took off and became booked solid for weddings, fundraising events, corporate and private functions and even presidential inaugural ceremonies and legendary parties hosted by Donald Trump. Today, the band is proud to be rated the best corporate and events party band in America.

Because POTM became so successful, Ed and Dennis formed the organization Galaxy Party Band, which features hot sister bands that also deliver a high quality yet affordable experience, to meet the demand.

Ed and Dennis attribute all of their bands’ success to top-caliber talent (who have backed the hottest stars including Beyonce, Elton John, Janet Jackson, Earth Wind and Fire and Outkast and are easy to work with); affordable prices; non-stop play action; and their commitment to delivering the best party experience ever.

Bringing National Talent to Your Block

There’s no denying that our high-caliber talent sets Party on the Moon and National Party Bands apart from the rest. Meet some of the stars that make our sister bands soar.
