THE GOLD TIPS - IRELAND’S NEW SOUL SENSATION
The Gold Tips blow a non-stop soul-train hurricane. The nine-piece emerged out of Belfast, fully formed, some months ago. Their distinctive, righteous sound, created and driven by frontman Eamonn McNamee, is soaked in a deep love of Sam Cooke, Stax & Solomon Burke and has already seen them pack clubs and carry them to festival main stages. The band opened for the legendary Nile Rodgers & Chic to a sell-out crowd at Custom House Square, Belfast in August 2021.
Their debut album ‘Parade’ released in February 2022, is a 9 track, horn-drenched, glorious squall forged in the great sounds of the past and sounding absolutely of the moment.
