  • Downbeat LA was so easy to work with, and the band was FANTASTIC! We have this event every year and I've never seen so many people on the dance floor. We'll definitely be working with them again!

  • We had the most amazing time at our wedding thanks to SoulTones and Downbeat LA! Diego and Joel were incredibly helpful throughout the planning process and patient with us as we tried to figure out how to make sure we could have the band set-up work with our wedding at The Ranch. We had SUCH A BLAST and all our guests were dancing their faces off the entire night! We have had people raving about them everytime we talk about the wedding, and we could not recommend them more. They were a hit and truly the highlight of the night! They are wonderful performers and had so many options that everyone from my grandparents to bridal party loved the songlist. Thanks so much Downbeat and SoulTones!

  • We hired Gold Standard as the band for our wedding and could not have been more thrilled with them! They made our wedding day! We coordinated with Diego, who was very helpful. The band members are so talented, full of energy, and had everyone at the wedding on the dance floor, which was the one thing I really wanted. I would recommend them 10 times out of 10 and hope to have a reason to hire them for something else in the future. Do yourself a favor and go with Gold Standard and Downbeat LA!

  • Downbeat put us together with the band Soul Tones. To say they were amazing would not do credit to the musicians. Instruments were rock solid and the vocalists!!! Holy [email protected]! If you get a band with one great vocalist you are happy. If they happen to have two it's a blessing. Soul Tones came with three that were absolutely phenomenal. They played everything from classic rock jams to hip hop to slow dance ballads to dance party standards. Band interacted with our guests and read the crowd perfectly. EVERYONE commented on how tight they were. They got everyone out on the dance floor including life long "no dancers". My only regret was that the party had to end. I would strongly consider crashing weddings if Soul Tones were playing.

  • Downbeat LA/AMFM made our wedding absolutely incredible!!!! We truly cannot say enough good things about them-- Diego and Andrew worked with us for almost a year planning the details of the music and were incredibly flexible and responsive throughout the whole time. One month before the wedding, another vendor (who was supposed to play music while I walked down the aisle) cancelled suddenly, and Andrew and Diego were right there to step in and reassure us that it was no problem and they could extend their time to play during that time! I cannot express how much of a relief that was at that time to know how flexible, supportive, engaged and professional they were. They learned new songs we wanted played, added a DJ we asked for at the end of the ceremony, and provided recommendations that ended up being absolutely perfect and really made our vision come true! At the wedding, AMFM was hands down THE STAR-- they interacted with our guests, coming into the crowd and even had an air g... Read more

  • Gold Standard performed at our wedding. They did a fantastic job. From the first song, our guests knew it was going to be a party. It's important to have a good vibe to set the tone for the wedding. We wrote the script and recreated the POSE scene for Royalty. Our wedding party walked down in pairs with commentary from the announcer (one of the singers). He did a fantastic job. He got our guests up off their seats, hyped up, and cheering us on when we all walked down. We also did a choreographed dance for our first dance. The band did a great job following our instructions on the song. We were able to practice with the band live during the cocktail hour. It was perfectly planned. Overall, Gold Standard delivered beyond our expectations. Our guests are still talking about how awesome the band was. I strongly recommend anyone looking for a wedding band or for other events. I know if I have another big event I will definitely be booking them again.

  • If you want a guaranteed fun and poppin' event, book them! Our wedding was in Sonoma County at Olympia's Valley Estate and their 10-piece band, AMFM, traveled up north to celebrate with us. We were originally recommended by our friend who went to 2 other weddings where Downbeat had artists perform there. As big concert goers and music lovers, we wanted our guests to be entertained and the attention on them to create the party mood. We chose AMFM and couldn't have been more pleased. My wife is very particular about vocalists and instrumentals from growing up and taking Choir and Band in high school and she was mindblown about how good they were. Their whole ensemble was amazing, from the vocalists to the instruments to the DJ and sound check. For our first dance, they performed "Best Part" and did it justice and H.E.R. and Daniel Caesar would've be proud! We grew up with 90s Hip-Hop & R&B and really wanted to incorporate that vibe into our big day. AMFM killed it! Probably one of the b... Read more

  • We knew that a great band would be the focal point of our wedding and we were ok spending a little more in order to get the best! We loved SoulTones of DownbeatLA. Not only did they sound amazing, their energy penetrated the entire night! They kept people on the dance floor and they were not afraid to get down and join the party. I had two issues with the band though, although not serious. The first, we hired the same band to bring a guitarist and dj to our ceremony and although we provided the EXACT music we wanted, he did not play the version of the songs we wanted and then was missing the bridal processional song all together. Thankfully my coordinator had it on her phone. The second, we had a few cultural elements to our reception and they did a great job of singing them, however they didn't give the appropriate introductions so that our guests knew what was going on. All in all, these two things did not ruin our wedding, but good information for anyone looking to book them, is tha... Read more

  • The best thing I can tell you is to just book AMFM. They were worth every penny and SO fantastic at our wedding in October 2018. We loved them and so did our guests!! They had fantastic talent, energy, and musicality - we truly couldn't have asked for more. We received so many compliments on them during the wedding and after; some people even said they were the best wedding band they'd ever heard!! They got everyone on the dance floor, which is a true feat. They really made our night come to life and we can't thank them enough! Diego is also a fantastic guy and so easy to work with in the days leading up - I have nothing bad to say!!

  • AMFM is hands down the best in the business. They made our wedding night so special and memorable. They had everyone dancing and having a great time. They were clearly so passionate about the music and it was showed in the amazing quality of music! Everyone was impressed. They were also great to work with and very professional. We were so lucky to have had them in our wedding. I would high recommend them! Thank you AMFM!

  • We always knew that we wanted a great band at our wedding and so when we selected Gold Standard from Downbeat LA, I have to be honest that our expectations were pretty high. Somehow, these guys exceeded what we could have even dreamed! Our friends and family had the time of their lives. Even at dinner service when the band was just getting started (*cue "If I ain't got you" by Alicia Keys*), we had multiple people come up to us and say how incredible the band was. Then came the dance party... Our friends still can't stop talking about it. We cannot recommend Gold Standard enough.

  • Unbelievable band! So much fun! They played all night, with vocalists and horns coming onto the dance floor to dance with guests. The energy was incredible. DJ kept things going between sets. Loved them! Horns totally worth it! Thanks so much for making our wedding the best it could be!
