The Golden Bell Collective is made up of a crew of top DJs and musicians from the Bay Area and Los Angeles.
Outside of DJing private events and parties, you can find us performing our original music or touring with top artists such as Bonobo, Pretty Lights, Talib Kweli, Gramatik, Beats Antique and Afrolicious to name a few.
By booking as a collective, rather than individual artists, we’re able to pool our collective resources and place these top DJs and musicians at private events and weddings who would otherwise be unavailable. In fact, many members of the collective are only able to pursue full-time careers in music through the support of the events Golden Bell has been able to provide. By hiring the Golden Bell team for your events, you’re directly supporting artists and musicians in your community.
