Act Profile

Classic Motown & Soul

Perhaps the most stunning act on Earcandy’s books, Motown Gold are an 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

  • The Act made our night. They were absolutely fantastic, brilliant voices and great fun. The dance floor was never empty!! Totally seamless. The lead singer even came to find me at the end of the night to say goodbye which was lovely. If I could give you 11 out of 10 I would.

  • Having a band for our wedding reception was extremely important to us to really give our guests a good party, and Motown Gold turned out to be the perfect choice. 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.
