Full Description
Available from a 5pc band, up to a full 10pc, enjoy the vocals of some of the best performers on the circuit, complete with industry standard Audio and Lighting equipment. What makes Motown Gold unique? > Get better performers : Motown Gold performers know how to put on an incredible show - having performed at venues all across the country and abroad, from the smallest weddings to some of the most prestigious events (even members of the royal family!) > Motown / Soul music : We think Motown and Soul music translates well across all ages - from your kids to your grannie. *The management* Your booking will be managed by the award-winning company, Earcandy. Unlike traditional agencies, Earcandy only represents a handful of exclusive Act concepts - which means you can't get them anywhere else. Earcandy will liaise with your venue before your wedding to help make sure all logistical details are prepared and to take the weight off your shoulders. You also get your entertainment coordination team available by phone or email - we're here to help advise and make sure the final details are prepared for the day, and also to help give you advice on how to make your wedding day extra special. *The tech bits* Along with your booking, you get your very own "sound engineer" Most venues aren't "built" for live sound - and we recommend a sound engineer to make sure the sound of the band is tailored to the venue, so you can hear everything at its best. *Music in-between* In between the band's sets, at no extra charge you can get Earcandy's Disco Package - which is the sound engineer administering a playlist of music. You can let us know what songs you'd like to hear, and the sound engineer will make sure it's played for you. For something even better, you can upgrade to a fully-fleged stand-alone DJ. It will be a DJ that comes with a DJ booth who can 'read the room' and adapt the music to suit your musical preferences. *VIEW OUR VIDEOS BELOW!*

We booked Motown Gold for our wedding in September. Motown Gold was absolutely brilliant and our guests have been raving about them ever since the day! They played a great set and we were so grateful for how everything ran so smoothly on the day. We also booked A DJ with earcandy. He rang us the week of the wedding to understand the details of the day, what kind of music we were into, which songs we wanted him to play and the nature of the guest list for the purposes of planning his set. He played a brilliant set and everyone was dancing right until the end. We were so grateful for how brilliant they both were and couldn’t recommend them enough. Thanks so much!

The Somebodys were incredible! We've had so much feedback from people saying how much they loved them! They took requests, spoke myself and new husband and interacted with our guests! They helped to make our evening extra special!

I thoroughly recommend The King of the Swingers
Extremely professional charming guys. Our guests ranged from age 16 to 80 something and everyone said how much they enjoyed both the band and the dj. I thoroughly recommend The King of the Swingers for a similar audience.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't underestimate the importance of your entertainment, it's the final part of your wedding day - get it right and it ends the evening with a bang.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Personal favourite: the bride had a bucket list task - to sing in front of a big audience. Our band obliged and backed her up.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Get in touch with the entertainment advisors at Earcandy. They'll go over your initial requirements/needs and make sure they get you booked with an exclusive Earcandy Act that is the right fit for you.

On your big day, your Act will be set up and ready to perform with the magic that Earcandy is known for!

What makes a romantic first dance?

Think about something that is meaningful for both of you - it doesn't need to be conventional. If you want Motown Gold to learn and perform the song, that can be an even more special way to enjoy your first dance !
