Meet the Maestro
The Birth of the Love Uninhibited Orchestra
In February 2010, Danny Moynahan was preparing for his monthly residency with his trio at a Venice, CA restaurant called the Talking Stick.
In a nod to Valentine’s Day, he added a few classic love songs to his repertoire of original music and invited the audience to sing along. The following Valentine’s Day, he added two sets of love songs and invited additional guest singers, a horn section, and a string section to perform with him.
Lyrics were projected on the wall that night for all to see. Much singing ensued. All inhibitions were peeled away as the band and audience made love songs to each other all night long, and the Love Uninhibited Orchestra was born.
Meet the Love Uninhibited Singers
Matt, Nini, Johanna, and Kate are featured throughout the Love Uninhibited repertoire, harkening back to singers from the Golden Age of love songs like Al Green, Minnie Ripperton, Karen Carpenter, Toni Tenille, Marvin Gaye, the BeeGees, and many more. In this video, the Love Uninhibited Singers talk about what it feels like from the band's perspective when the whole audience is singing along.
The Love Uninhibited Sing-along
Jesse, Timothy, Danny, and Mike come from a family of musicians and performers where sing-alongs were a regular occurrence. In this video, they talk about music, life, and the sing-along.
In the Studio
The Love Uninhibited Orchestra was honored, in the summer of 2015, to record love songs at the state-of-the-art Hen House Studios in Venice, CA. Here is one of those songs.
