GOLD STANDARD is an experienced TRIO BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN OLD SCHOOL JAZZ/SOUL AND ELECTRONIC MUSIC.
Gold Standard's "Remixed Jazz” combines buttery jazz inspired vocals with live drums, DJ, sax, and flute. Their sound is a danceable jazz/electro/soul hybrid, drawing from influences like Frank Sinatra, Gnarls Barkley and Daft Punk. The group has entertained celebrity events attended by actors Ewan McGregor, Elizabeth Banks, Keira Knightley and many more. Because they incorporate a skilled DJ in the mix, Gold Standard can play light nostalgic jazz classics but still ramp things up with remixes and huge dance tracks with their award winning DJ and live drummer.
The band has shared the stage with chart-toppers Matisyahu, Capitol Cities, and OAR, playing events of all shapes and sizes from intimate VIP receptions to the Cartier mansion's grand opening in Manhattan. Constantly traveling, Gold Standard continues to perform all over the world.
Conn Curran, son of legendary vocalist Doug Curran of "The Letterman" is the golden-voiced front man. Rob Bennion holds weekly residencies at multiple venues both as saxophonist and DJ, and has toured worldwide including headlining a jazz festival in Japan. Drummer Bart Olson has been signed to Capitol Records and shared the stage with Bob Dylan, Keith Urban, Marc Anthony, and many more, touring extensively throughout his career.
