The Golden Coast Allstars

The Golden Coast All Stars are here to revolutionize the Southern California wedding and event scene. The newest creation from Gold Coast Events' Danny Chaimson, the band brings the wildly successful formula that has transformed Chicago's entertainment industry (with The Gold Coast All Stars and The Chicago Players) to SoCal.

The Golden Coast All Stars are truly an all-star group, consisting of impressive major label talent and the best artists from LA's original music scene. With groupings ranging from 11-18 hip, young, transformative performers-the band discerningly belts out the best from Otis Redding to the Stones, Madonna to the Talking Heads, Kanye West to Kings of Leon-with an energy and authenticity previously unseen.

Be ready to experience a level of talent that you never thought was possible in one band. LA is about to experience what Chicago can't stop raving about, and we can't wait to bring it to you.

I literally cannot speak highly enough of the Golden Coast Allstars.
Music was THE most important thing for me at my wedding, and the band absolutely nailed it. Super easy to work with, extremely professional, and just all around some the best musicians out there.
I would recommend them to anyone I know getting married, and don't have a single negative thing to say about the experience!
