MOTM is a wonderful venue, presenting music in a comfortable environment for both the listener and the performer. The setting is intimate and the focus is on the music. Owner Keith Harrelson has created a true listening room without distraction. There's no bar or restaurant, although you're welcome to bring your own food and beverage, adult or otherwise. I've been... More

I LOVE this venue - both as a performer and as an audience member. The intimate space and quality sound equipment make for a perfectly enjoyable experience for all present. I love that you can bring your own food and drinks, that the shows typically start at the reasonable hour of 7:30pm, and that you can bring your kids (or... More

MOTM is a listening room that has friendly and informal living room feel with the best sound anywhere!

A true listening room! Top touring singer songwriters. Also supports local artist as opening acts and great open mic nights twice a month. You can bring your own food and beverages. Birmingham is fortunate to have his venue. The touring acts ALWAYS comment how lucky we are to have a venue like the Moonlight.

As a local music lover, I have visited Moonlight on the Mountain more times than I can count and have NEVER seen a bad show! The emphasis is on original, acoustic music performed by touring musicians although the Bham area has quite few talented performers as well that get showcased. MOTM has a calendar posted on its website with artist... More

I have been here several times and it is a great little venue. It's a very laid back atmosphere and the location has a fantastic view (especially at sundown). I love the fact you can bring your own food and drinks, too! I look forward to seeing many more shows here.

I went to this venue twice while I was in town and enjoyed the music on both occasions. The owners we very polite and helpful and it had a very nice atmosphere, you get close to the performers. If I was staying longer I go again.

We really enjoyed our visit to this venue. The atmosphere is casual, warm, intimate and romantic. The music that night (Mike June and Jessie Keith) was my favorite kind: songs from the hearts, hands and voices of the ones who wrote them. So was the audience- there to listen and enjoy original music. MOTM is in a plaza right across... More

Moonlight specializes in showcasing singer-songwriters. This is a listening room, and you are reminded to minimize your conversation while the performers are playing. Prices are very reasonable, but no food or drinks (other than free coffee) are served -- you are, however, quite welcome to bring your own, and people bring just about anything. The music is the main draw,... More

If you enjoy listening to singer/songwriters in a really great listening room, this is the place to go. The owner does a terrific job offering excellent singer/songwriter talent on a regular basis. The room is hospitable; the acoustics and ambiance are great. Guests can bring their own beverages and snacks. Complementary coffee is available. This is a very unique venue... More
