Gold Standard Music (Band and DJ)
About this pro
As both a band leader and DJ I am able to provide musical entertainment for all aspects of an event from start to finish. For some events, I DJ and play the saxophone. Other events I bring my band and also DJ. Gold Standard is comprised of three seasoned jazz musicians: Conn Curran (vocals) Bart Olson (drums) and Rob Bennion (DJ/Sax/Flute) with an affinity for vintage jazz style and electronic exploration. They are known for taking current popular hits and turning them into golden crooner renditions- combining serious DJ grooves with impressive acoustic chops. Their music spans from the classic sounds of Frank Sinatra, to a dance-infused electronic version of John Legend. They can turn a concert or event into a speakeasy or a dance club, or both. Providing a quality experience for satisfied customers makes me happy!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After getting the details about timing, location, and type of event, I begin working with the client to customize the music for it. I ask for a 25% and have a simple contract, also a questionnaire about the music to make sure everything's just right.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I began performing in clubs at 15, I studied music in school, and have been performing professionally for over 20 years. I am resident DJ at a night club and perform on average 4x a week year round.
