What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 120 - 300 minutes
Solid 6 piece band with four lead-quality vocalists as well as great players. All very memorable and danceable classic hits, mainly from the 50's through the 80's but also songs from the 90's and 2000's. Lots of fun and high energy delivery.
The crowd will be dancing, singing along and having a great time while GoldRush plays those great oldies, pop, rock and favorite country tunes from the past.
With a song list of about 400 tunes we work directly with our clients to tailor our performance to your liking, be it rock & roll, country, pop or a nice mixture of all genres.
We have even had members of the crowd join us on stage to fulfill their lifelong dream of performing in a band.
