More information about Gold Dust

We are available as a five-piece band, consisting of lead vocals, guitar, keys, bass guitar and drums/special FX.

However, we are very flexible with the size of our ensemble. If required, we have a horn and/or string section ready to go.

We are based in London but perform at weddings and events throughout the UK, especially in the counties of Essex, Surrey, Hertfordshire, Kent, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and the entire South East.


How do I know you’ll fill my dance floor and have it cooking on gas all night?

This is understandably the most pressing question or concern for anyone wanting to guarantee an evening of great entertainment.

We love music and we love seeing people enjoy themselves. We use our wealth of experience having each performed with major artists at major venues and events to deliver top quality live shows.

If you have a party / corporate event / special occasion and need live music and a dance floor full of people having a great time, we will deliver exactly that.

How long does the band play for?

We normally play 2 x 1-hour sets or 3 x 45-minute sets. However, we are happy to discuss other options to suit your event.

Can I request a song for our first dance / can I pick songs that are NOT on your repertoire list?

Absolutely! We do kindly ask that you give us sufficient notice if you would like us to do this (at least one month). Our repertoire list is also always expanding so feel free to add a few additional songs that are not on our list and we will do our utmost to accommodate you.

What happens between the band performances / do we need to hire a DJ as well as the band?

We can provide music between sets and after the band has finished from a playlist via our laptop that is connected directly to the sound system.

This option is included in the cost of our service. We do also provide a professional DJ service for an extra fee, courtesy of our multi-talented bass player, so please let us know if you would like to discuss this further.

Will the band provide their own equipment?

We will provide our own PA sound system and lights suitable for an audience up to 300 people. For larger events than this there will be a small additional hire charge.

How much power does that band require?

We do not provide any power generating equipment and require this to be provided at the event. We require access to minimum x3 240v sockets within 10 meters of the stage area and we normally use around 4-5kw of power.

There is a noise limiter at my event. What should I do?

We have played at events with noise limiters before and this isn’t necessarily a problem provided we are told what the limiter is set to.

Below 95 can be problematic and above 100 dB is ideal. If you are not sure whether there is a noise limiter at the event, we recommend that you check.

"We had a wonderful time last night with Gold Dust playing for a combined 25th wedding anniversary and 21st Birthday party at our house. Liese has a fantastic voice and the musicianship was excellent. Jack was very professional beforehand agreeing on play list and times. They were flexible ensuring that we had the kind of party that we wanted. Everyone from 7 years old to 77 enjoyed the music and the 20 somethings couldn't get enough. That you so much for playing for us - you really made our night. Hope we have the opportunity to book you again soon, although the neighbours might take a while to forget it!"

“We took our time to find a great a band for our wedding and chose Gold Dust because they looked like the fun, energetic act that were looking for. We weren’t disappointed. We had a number of comments from guests on how good they were and we felt they were very good at getting people up to the dance floor and enjoying the party. Thank you for being flexible and getting there early on the day and for giving us a great party!“

"After discovering Gold Dust, we were desperate to have them at our wedding. Their medley video really caught our eye and they didn't disappoint! What a fantastic performance and a great way to finish our big day. We'll never forget their performance of David Bowie's "Heroes" for our first dance - it was such a good choice. They turned up soo promptly and got set up with no hassle or hand holding, whilst the rest of the wedding continued. All our guests were buzzing for the band and the atmosphere was great, everyone was on the dance floor dancing and singing along. We would highly recommend them for anyone for their wedding or party. We're already looking for the next excuse to have them play for us again."

"Thank you so much Gold Dust for making our daughter’s birthday party the most amazing and magical party ever! Although a more acoustic set up, your band managed to bring our 'Garden Music Festival' to life: performing so many wonderful songs and allowing the children an ‘open mic’ so that they could sing their favourite songs, too. Your warmth and encouragement enabled the children to take to the stage and sing their hearts out. We all enjoyed the experience greatly. It was a fabulous event thanks to you all."

"Gold Dust were a massive hit at our wedding. The sound was incredible as they played two sets: one Motown and the other modern pop and rock. They have an extensive range of music and they really made the day special by creating a party atmosphere. They also played Bill Withers for our first dance, which kicked the evening off perfectly. Thank you, Gold Dust, you were superb!”

“Hiring Gold Dust to play at our wedding was the absolute right decision – they lit the place up! Within seconds the dance floor was full as they reeled out an eclectic set of tunes from artists such as Police, Blondie and Tina Turner. Their version of “Proud Mary” was infectious! We can only recommend this band – their ability as musicians and professional attitude meant we could relax and enjoy a truly great night. Many thanks again Gold Dust!”

"Gold Dust… Me and my wife want to thank you so much for making our day very special. The music was really well played and the energy from the performance was infectious. Our guests were on there feet dancing, singing along and having lots of fun. All the members of the band are talented musicians whose precision and versatility enables them to play a variety of songs. There was something for everyone. We love you and can’t wait to arrange another party:) Christian & Tracey Kuhwald xx".
