Full Biography

Gold: The Ultimate Function Band.
This international party band is made up of a collection of the highest quality professional session musicians and vocalists who specialise in performing choice party tracks from the wide ranging genres of Funk; Soul; Motown; Rock; Indie; Pop and Disco.

Gold has a wealth of experience performing at the very highest profile events at venues in London such as The Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair, The four Seasons in Canary Wharf and The Savoy on the Strand for clients such as Louis Vuitton, Rolex and BMW to name just a few. The versatility of the band means that they are not only ideal for corporate events but also for weddings and civil partnerships, university balls, birthday parties and barmitzfers, awards ceremonies and festivals. They have also proved to be very popular with the British Military and are engaged by the SAS, RAF, Army and Navy on their major events throughout the year.

Gold is led by Mathew Richardson Bmus (Hons) who is a former scholarship student of the Royal Academy of Music London. Away from Gold Mathew along with the other members of the band enjoy a varied freelance career working at home and abroad with artists such as Sir Paul McCartney, Corrine Bailey Rae, Professor Green, Sam Smith and The Human League, in some of the countries finest concert venues as well as on television including appearances on Later with Jools Holland, on the radio and on a number of commercially available recordings.

If you need a band that will have you dancing all night & leave you shouting for more, there can be only one choice…

Gold; The Ultimate Function Band.

Gold Party
The party band produces a truly fantastic sound and is perfect as the main evening’s entertainment for any event.

The band will perform for up to a total of two hours of live music, and its at the clients discretion whether the format is 2 x 45 minute sets, 2 x 60 minute sets or 3 x 40 minute sets.

Acoustic Sets (Guitar & Female Vocals)
Gold offer an acoustic Duo option with guitar and female vocals which is perfect to create a laid back and contemporary feel to your drinks reception or dinner. The band will perform for up to 2x40 minute sets.

Gold Jazz
The versatility of the members of Gold means that they are just as experienced performing Jazz Standards, as they are party tracks, and are able to offer the Gold Jazz option.

Dine in style whilst being entertained by the refined sounds of Gold Jazz. The Duo, Trio or Quartet is able to cover a full range of cool Jazz Standards which will add sophistication to any event. The band will perform for up to 2x40 minute sets.

DJ Option
As standard Gold provide a laptop DJ service so that your guests are kept fully entertained when the band is not performing live. They have a huge amount of popular songs and they mix them as they would be by a traditional DJ. They will make basic announcements, and take requests from guests on the night. You can even let us know in advance if you have any favourite songs and they will make up a playlist specially for your event.

Dress Code
The band will always dress very smartly as standard unless a more casual look is required by the client. Please just let us know what you require for your event and they will be as flexible as possible to try and meet your requirements.

PA Equipment
As standard Gold uses top of the range audio equipment which is installed and operated on each engagement by our very own team. Because the band is fully engineered this ensures the perfect sound mix for each and every event. After gaining entry to the performance area, it takes a total of between 60 / 90 minutes to be fully set and ready to perform.

Working with Sound Limiters
The band is regularly booked to play at events where the venue has some restrictions placed on the amount of volume which is allowed during the performance. Usually there is a decibel meter fitted in the room which is connected to the power supply that the band is asked to use. This is absolutely no problem for the band to work with.

Lighting Options
As standard Gold uses the Acme cabaret colour pro light system. This produces 4000 watts of stage lighting via 8 x 500 watt bulbs. The system allows a flood of light of numerous colours or can be programmed to move with the rhythm of the band. The equipment is very compact and so can be used in almost any space.

For larger events, we can supply a popular range of intelligent and generic lighting from manufacturers such as Avolites, Martin Professional, Clay Paky, CCT, and Thomas and complementary special effects such as smoke and haze which can greatly improve the impact of the lighting. Set up time around 120 minutes.

Even better than we could have hoped for

5 stars - Gold are Highly Recommended
booked Gold for their Wedding in Cheshire May 2024

“Our wedding day was magical and the band was a large part of why! I'm so glad I stuck to my guns and insisted on a live band. We had actually seen them perform at a friend's wedding the year before and so felt confident they'd be a huge hit, but they still managed to blow us away. Their energy levels were phenomenal (I have no idea how they're able to just keep going song after song!) and everybody loved their sets. We also adored their rendition of our first dance song. We had also requested a last dance song that was performed brilliantly but didn't hit quite the way we had hoped with the crowd... the band spontaneously looked to us to see if we were up for one 'final final' song. Of course we were! They then broke into Uptown Funk, which is one of our absolute all time favourite songs to dance to. It just couldn't have been a more perfect way to end the night and was genuinely just the band going with their gut and reading the room. Couldn't recommend them any more h...”

Highly recommend

5 stars - Gold are Highly Recommended
booked Gold for their Wedding in Nottinghamshire

“Just spot on - from the contact before the day through to the actual performance, everything was great. Lots of guests have commented on how good the band were and I loved that we were able to have our first dance to our song of choice, live. Only downside is I didn’t get confirmation of receipt of final payment. Thank you for a fab day though.”

“Perfect band, for a great celebration. Brilliant communication before hand. Lovely members of the band. The selection of songs they managed to squeeze into the 2 hours was a great mixture that got people dancing! The comments from people throughout the night were fantastic, I would definitely book Gold again!”
