All videos on our site were shot 100% live to try and give you a taste of the unparalleled joy, talent, and excitement that emanate from the stage during A Gold Coast All Stars performance. The standard lineup features 13-18+ pieces (including 10 different lead singers who all specialize in different genres!), and for certain events there are options to slim down or even add more musicians. The band is comprised of nationally recognized talent from the original music scene, and their ability to make wedding entertainment legitimately cool might be their greatest accomplishment of all!
