Our history


Established in 2015, after the late and legendary Lance Diamond passed away, vocalist Denzell Ward with members of the former 24K Band formed a new identity now known as Denzell Ward and Cool Platinum.  

Since then, the band has performed at many bars and clubs throughout WNY, private events and functions, and larger performances at Canalside, Tonawanda Canal Fest, Funk Fest, M&T Bank Plaza Series, Erie County Fair, and the Taste of Buffalo!

Our sound


Buffalo's premier and only band performing both old and new school R&B, Funk, Pop, Hip-Hop, and much more!  We create a high energy, up tempo, crowd engaging performance with a one of a kind sound all over WNY.

From the sounds of James Brown, Rick James, The Rolling Stones, Disco, and Motown, Denzell Ward and Cool Platinum can do it all and so much more!
