There are Motown Bands & There's Motown Gold

There are Motown bands for hire and then there’s Motown Gold. Perhaps the most stunning act on Earcandy’s books and guaranteed to leave your guests awestruck.

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.

Motown Bands For Hire - The Ultimate Motown Tribute 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. Consider it the ultimate Motown tribute band.

Motown Gold’s song list incorporates bespoke song arrangements, exclusively refined by Earcandy. That means you experience a performance you won’t find with any other Motown bands for hire.

“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

  • We booked Motown Gold and DJ Kev Williams for our wedding in September.

    Motown Gold were 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, and thank god we got DJ Kev! Kev 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. Kev 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!

  • We can't thank Motown Gold enough for the incredible contribution they made to our wedding reception back in September.
    They were absolutely fabulous, sounded incredible, looked and performed so professionally and we sang and danced the night away!
    We would highly recommend them and wish we could do it all again!
