The Gold Tips are a nine-piece soul band, featuring the rocking elements of drums, bass, guitar, keys alongside some righteous horns and vocals – everything required to make a beautiful sound.
At home in a club or on a festival main stage, the band opened for the legendary Nile Rodgers & Chic to a sell out crowd at Custom House Square, Belfast in August 2020.
Debut album Parade, due to be released in early 2022, is a 9 track soul-train hurricane soaked in a deep love of Sam Cooke, Stax and early Dexys.
Like proper soul heroes, there is not a moment wasted, as Parade gallops in at 27 glorious minutes.
