“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!

      Ben Dilworth

They engaged with the crowd, got everyone involved and our guests were disappointed when they finished because they were so good. We would definitely hire them again!

We already loved the music, but the band really brought something special to the evening. The range of songs provided something for everyone - our family and friends were dancing through the reception which is exactly what we’d hoped would happen! We received so many great comments, and we’re sure it’ll be remembered for a long time to come! All the musicians were extremely talented and professional on the night, we couldn’t have asked for more. Just wish we had another suitable event to book them again.

    • What an amazing band Motown Gold are. Absolutely loved it. Everyone loved it. I just didn't want to leave the dance floor. And the man I married-My Amazing Husband-he hates dancing, but guess what-He stayed with me on the dance floor all that night. Thank you guys. What an amazing band. Moves, voices-so powerful. I absolutely loved it. And the fact that they agreed to do my wedding only with one week before notice (just because my band-which supposed to be playing, couldn't play)-was just fantastic. Absolutely brilliant band and company who provides them. As soon as O sent my desperate message, I received phone call, straight away. Amazing. Thank you all so much.

    • 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.

      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.

With this in mind, they were professional, polite, and patiently waited until there was space for them to do so. once the evening did get stared, the band were amazing. Everyone was up and dancing and enjoying the entertainment. Having the band instead of just a DJ really made the evening feel special and it was a great way the spend the remainder of our wedding day.
