About The Golden Geese – professional acoustic duo based in London
The Golden Geese are a highly accomplished and professional musical duo who make any party or event an occasion to remember.
More than just a covers band, The Golden Geese's energetic and infectious act reworks your favourite tunes from across the last century in a quirky style that keeps guests guessing and everyone entertained.
We're regularly booked to perform for weddings and events at The Fox & Grapes in Wimbledon and Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in Camberley, UK.
We specialise in performing at weddings, private parties, charity balls and corporate events.
As an acoustic duo, we are able to roam around your guests which can add another dimension to our performance – roaming is particularly suitable for wedding breakfasts and outdoor events.
With more than 10 years experience playing all over the UK and the world, our unique style of playing classic songs is guaranteed to intrigue and delight any audience.
Their repertoire covers everything from Gershwin to Oasis, Bob Dylan to Beyoncé and Elvis to S Club. It's upbeat, happy, dancing music in a skiffle, rockabilly, jazz style.
Endlessly versatile, they are as happy on the Main Stage through the biggest PA as they are roaming acoustic.
Whether welcoming guests in or closing the party in the wee small hours, they are experts at judging their audience.
Each gig has a unique setlist calibrated to the mood of the crowd and the intent of the client. A "No Fuss" service with a smile is our trademark!
Previous clients include Adidas, Arriva Trains, The OXO Tower Restaurant, Metro Radio, T Mobile, Leon Restaurants, Newcastle United Football Club, Atkins Architects, Acton Borough Market, Dot Festival 08 and Bahrain Formula 1.
Here are just some of the locations where we have been booked by clients on FixTheMusic for weddings and events...
The Golden Geese have recently been booked on FixTheMusic for a private event at Tamesis Dock in London.
Full acoustic band
Expanding from a trio to a septet with the addition of drums, fiddle or brass, you can pick your own line-up.
The Golden Geese use some of the best musicians in London to become an even more formidable party force.
So if you're looking for the finest vintage acoustic covers band London has to offer, please get in touch! We look forward to entertaining you.
HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?
We will travel anywhere and everywhere. Inquiries for space travel are encouraged. Past adventures have seen us fly to glamorous locations in the Middle East and Ireland. Trains are our favoured (and ecologically sound) mode of transport, but of course, cars come in handy too.
HOW LONG DO YOU PLAY FOR?
For a standard booking we usually play two sets of 45 minutes (or 3 x 30 minutes), we can play for longer or shorter periods depending on your requirements.
CAN I REQUEST SONGS?
You can request any song you like, just give us a couple of weeks notice. Please bear in mind, however, that we would hate to murder your favourite song so if it doesn't sound great we won't play it. Also, if it's a song we hate we're probably not going to play it either. Feel free to ask though.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL DIETARY REQUIREMENTS? WOULD YOU LIKE A DRINK?
As long as its delicious we will eat it, although we do love steak. Champagne is our drink of choice, we are The Golden Geese after all.
DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN PA?
We have a very compact PA system that we can bring for gigs of up to 30 people. We are happy to liaise with hire companies in your area and help arrange local PA hire for your event. This ensures that the PA is set up and ready prior to the start of the event and can be used for speeches or music after we have left.
WHAT ARE YOUR POWER REQUIREMENTS?
This depends on amplification: acoustic, we need no power, with the small PA, two plug sockets. Obviously the bigger the PA the more plugs.
WHAT WILL YOU WEAR?
We have a variety of stage apparel but suited & booted is our default setting. Our Mark III Purple Velvet suits have just arrived and are looking awesome! Generally, we are very flexible so if you want us to match your colour scheme just ask.
DO YOU HAVE PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE?
We are covered up to £10,000,000 and can provide a certificate if required.
CAN YOU DJ?
Yes! We are both very experienced DJs and can spin many fantastic tunes to keep the party jumping after our live sets.
IS IT A REAL MOUSTACHE? HOW LONG DID IT TAKE TO GROW?
It is a real, bona fide, award-winning 'tache! Officially the 2nd best in the UK. Robbie has been growing it for 17 years.
IS IT A 'CELLO? IS IT HEAVY?
It is a double bass. It is heavy, but Brendan is exceedingly strong. It fits in most cars and regularly travels by train, tube and bus.
"I wanted to say thank you very much. The Golden Geese went down so well - thank you so much for all your help. Overall they were an absolute pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend them to other companies - they really do a great job."
"Hi Brendan, We just wanted to say how much we loved having The Golden Geese at our wedding. You were both brilliant and made our day so special! We’ve given out your details to a few guests who asked about you for their weddings! Also thought you might like to have a copy of this photo which was taken by our photographers. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future! Best wishes, Tess and David."
"We had the golden geese for our drinks reception of our wedding in Ireland last week. Wow did they get the party going or what!! Robbie and Brendan were truly incredible, they had everyone up dancing and singing before the meal! So many guests now want to book them for future events.
We are already planning when we could hire them again!"
"The Golden Geese were absolutely AMAZING tonight, our group loved them and the lads were a pleasure to work with - thank you so much, they really added that something extra special to the night!!! Will definitely keep them in mind for future gigs, such a talent!"
"The event went great, thank you. I was really impressed with The Golden Geese, they seemed really prepared and were very accommodating on the day. They seemed the perfect fit for the event and worked very well. Their personalities and performance were both quite quirky but this fitted well with the tone of the event."
"The Golden Geese were absolutely fantastic. Those boys are fantastic and went down really well. I really can't thank you enough please pass on my thanks to the performers!"
