Act Profile

Classic Motown & Soul

Perhaps the most stunning act on Earcandy’s books, Motown Gold are and act designed to impress your guests.

Motown Gold celebrate the finest songs from the Tamala Motown and Classic Soul era. Experience songs made famous by musical ‘giants’ such as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and The Jackson 5. Older and younger generations all enjoy the classic songs. And that’s because some of the most legendary songwriters of all time wrote them – So we think they are timeless. Motown Gold are appropriate for medium and larger venues where there is space to show off and make full use of a larger band.

You will be thrilled by the distinctive harmony of up to three singers, and an authentic brass trio that transports you and your guests back to the 60s when Motown made its mark.

Motown Gold’s song list incorporates bespoke song arrangements, exclusively refined by Earcandy. That means you experience a performance you won’t find anywhere else.

“Motown Gold from Earcandy have been the band of choice for many of our clients at One Events. They are fun, professional and extremely talented and they always keep guests on the dance floor the whole night.”

Jemimah - Event Organiser for prestigeous venues

  • Motown Gold were absolutely sensational, from the first song to the last, people did not leave the dance floor and the feedback from everyone was exceptional! Many people have requested their details for their own wedding! They were also just a lovely bunch of people.

  • The act was amazing, they really made the evening, sounded great and looked the part, with a really great energy throughout. Everyone commented on how good they sounded and they interacted with our guests during the performance which made it extra special. They were very flexible with us as we had delayed their start time for which we apologize. They delivered our first dance as requested, which was a lovely touch. I was worried that guests would not start dancing early in the evening but the act were so good that they couldn't help themselves from the moment they started singing! We were all begging for 1 more song before they finished! I wish we had another big event coming up so we could hire them all over again, thank you for all the guys who came from Earcandy and Motown Gold.

  • Motown Gold made my wedding reception! From the first soulful note of my first dance I was in heaven. They entirely exceeded expectations!
    The energy an 8 piece band brings is electric. Each member of the band were amazing true professionals.
    A special thanks to the male vocalist who absolutely smashed my first dance song, it brought tears to my eyes as well as my 100+ guests.
    Every single person at my wedding commented on how amazing the band were and how it felt like we were watching an intimate concert just for us - people cannot wait to book them.
    Id like to thank ear candy and Motown gold for being all I could have asked for and more, it made my whole night - I danced from 8pm till 1am and would have kept going all night long truly magical! thanks Motown gold hope to see you again.
