Accolade band specializes in elegant, fun, high-energy special events. Few other dance bands in the Midwest so flawlessly combine the energy and talent of a top concert or nightclub band with the professionalism and elegance of a top special event band. The Accolade band experience is guaranteed to give you and your guests an evening they’ll never forget.
Accolade is a 7-piece band performing popular dance music from the 60s through today, with a focus on Motown, Top 40, R&B/Soul/Funk, and Disco, as well as jazz and light music for dinner and cocktail hours. The word accolade means “an expression of the highest praise,” and the name Accolade was inspired by the consistently enthusiastic response the band received from their clients and audiences during their first ten years under a different name. Accolade has two of the most extraordinary lead singers you’ll find anywhere, which may explain why their clients are routinely asked by their guests, “Wow! Where did you find this amazing band?”
In addition to their great music, Accolade offers many “special touches” to help make your event as successful and hassle-free as possible. For example, they work closely with their clients to customize their performances around their clients’ preferences, they provide professional emcee services, they often are consulted for suggestions to help their clients plan the entertainment portion of their evening, and they usually can honor special requests. For the benefit of their clients, Accolade has invested in customized state-of-the-art technology that gives them a superior sound and maximum control over their volume, which is especially important for low-volume dinner music. They also pay detailed attention to the visual aesthetics of their performances, taking special measures to ensure that their stage area complements the elegance of your venue.
