Cover Band in Minneapolis, MN
This band is the shit. Hands down. Working as a wedding photographer for the past 3 years, I've been to my fare share of weddings. The wedding where I first heard them play was a dry reception, and I have seriously never seen people have so much fun without any booze in their systems. This band is sick and brings one hell of a party. Classic Gold= five stars, all the way.

See for all the way too much fun had at party hour for yourself >> http://beautyboardmediablog.com/2014/09/03/leonora-austin-get-married-minnesota-wedding-photographer/)

Classic Gold was great to work with! They met with us twice before our event and we had several emails between us as well. They were willing to work with our venue and bring in all their own equipment, they even put a speaker in our separate cocktail hour room for us and ran the ipod music all through dinner. We had a great time at our wedding reception and they were a huge part of that. Almost our entire wedding guest party was on the dance floor at one point! Sounded great and were very personable! Thanks for helping make our wedding amazing!!!!!!

It's been months since our wedding, and we still talk about how much we loved our wedding band, Classic Gold. These guys were seriously perfect for our indie-prairie wedding, but they are sharp dressers and have a sound that could match any of our friends' weddings these days. Thank you so much again, Classic Gold, for making the trip out for us and for being so accommodating, professional, and chill for us and our guests. We wish you nothing but great and wild success with your music!

We hired classic gold for our wedding on a very special day of 12-12-12. Not only is the day memorable, but this band made it even more so. I was expecting the usual cover band, come in, play songs, and get the heck out of there. Absolutely not the case with these guys. Super Fun, super professional, and became part of our guests while dancing in-between sets with us. It was unfortunate that a lot of our guests weren't up on the dance floor like I would have liked, but I was told that they really loved the band, even though they didn't seem like it HaHa. The variety of songs was amazing, even added a few extras in there. Kept everyone happy including my 16 month old daughter who is now they're groupie. My and my husband's song that we asked them to learn turned out beautiful for our first dance :) I'm all over the place with this review, but there was a lot to remember with Classic Band. If we ever have another function, they will definitely be the hired entertainment for sure! And I'm going to guess we'll be following them around at venues too!

Classic Gold arrived right on time, and got soundchecked and set up well before our ceremony. Their sound guy, Mason, did a great job adjusting the volume and tone for our metal building/reception space. The band sounded great, and their song choices were varied to appeal to a larger age range. The band was fine with playing a half hour later than scheduled due to a late dinner start. They announced us as man and wife and announced tables to be dismissed for food which was a big help. Afterwards, the band allowed us to play an iPod through their set-up while they mingled with our guests and relaxed. The band played short sets with breaks to keep people interested, and people were dancing through their whole set. They learned a song for our first dance, and were professional and thoughtful throughout, from booking them to them packing up. They are young but very responsible, we think they'd appeal to a big range of audiences. Thanks again, guys!

We hired Classic Gold for our Wedding. They took my suggestions for current songs as well as classics and expanded the list to include even more great selections. They kept the party moving; and I was impressed with their professionalism.

Booking Info

  • Typical Gig: 60 - 300 minutes
  • Fee: $1000 - $2500
  • Languages: English

Overview

Flexibility is our number one priority. It's your event and we are the guys who are supposed to help you look good.

We'll be on time, polite, well dressed, and sound great. We'll ask questions when needed and stay out of your hair so you can focus on your other priorities of the day.

Additional Booking Notes

We will bring our full professional sound and lighting system so that you don't need to deal with renting one.

It's all included in our quotes - no surprise fees.

We're always flexible but it's nice to have around 20 square feet to have everything setup. But we've squeezed on to lake cruise boats, and in wine tasting rooms and just got a little cozy.
