The Lakeshore Encores

The Lakeshore Encores came on the scene in 2017 as an exciting new option from Danny Chaimson and Gold Coast Events.  The band is led by the one and only Angela Martin.  Angela has been with Gold Coast since day one, and anyone who's seen The Gold Coast All Stars can tell you that Angela is a performer like no other.  Having been featured heavily on American Idol, she came to Gold Coast with a wealth of big time experience, and since then, she has performed all over the country as one of the lead singers of what has become know as the preeminent wedding band in the country.  She's redefining what it means to sing at a wedding: Angela makes you feel like you're at an amazing concert.
The band ranges from 11-13+ pieces and follows the same blueprint as all of the bands at Gold Coast.  There are 6 different lead singers who all specialize in different genres, allowing the band to be just as at home rocking a Queen song as they are a Rhianna song.  The Lakeshore Encores have been mesmerizing crowds at high end weddings and galas since their inception, and have quickly become one of the most in demand bands in Chicago.  Gold Coast Events is thrilled to be able to present another band that can do what only we do- turn your wedding or private event into the concert of your dreams.  We specialize in creating music and memories that last a lifetime- for you and your guests!


Saturday night was truly epic! The band was incredible, accommodating, interactive and a blast -
one of my favorite lines from the night was "this isn't like a wedding - this is like a fancy concert!". All of our guests talked
about how it was the best band they'd ever seen.
Please pass along my thanks and gratitude to Angela and the rest of the band. And let us know where
you guys prefer us to leave a glowing review - yelp or otherwise.
We appreciate everything and are looking froward to getting some rest now :)

Thanks again!
