Let The Excellerators make your next event unforgettable! The Excellerators (formerly named The Dam Band, see reviews below) are a high energy, interactive band who've been entertaining audiences throughout the Southeast since 1998!
So what makes The Excellerators the best band for your wedding or event?
Made up of musicians from diverse backgrounds, The Excellerators bring over 50 years of combined professional musical experience to your event. Some of our members have shared a stage with high-profile talent, ranging from Kansas to Elton John. Though we love to rock, our band members are classically trained and are able to provide virtually any style of music utilizing a wide variety of instruments as required by the material. We're also highly experienced playing entertainment events of all types, including weddings, private and corporate parties, fundraisers, reunions, and restaurant and club events.
With our talent line-up and diverse songlist of over 250 songs, we can provide a full spectrum of musical choices from all genres, including classic rock, current Top 40, jazz, country, and pop. For example, we play dinner sets consisting of both smooth jazz and deep jazz standards, which provide a relaxing atmosphere for dining and cocktails. The inclusion of an acoustic/electric guitar in our line-up allows us to seamlessly play hit songs that have significant acoustic sections such as: Heart, Taylor Swift, Led Zeppelin, Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, and many others. And when it's time to dance, our high energy entertainers and versatile playlist will ensure that your guests of all ages will stay out on the dance floor!
CONTINUOUS LIVE MUSIC
We play truly continuous “live” music – no need to schedule a DJ to cover our breaks. Our sets for live events average over an hour each, with only 10 minute breaks in between. When the band breaks, Jake keeps the house rocking with continuous music covering all requests from his vast DJ catalog. During our sets, our highly interactive band members also work hard to keep your guests engaged and excited throughout the event.
Our singular goal is to provide you with a satisfying experience from booking to event conclusion. We provide turnkey entertainment services with flawless execution, including providing reliable equipment such as extensive PA and computerized lighting to complete your entertainment experience. Our professionalism and reliability, no matter what the circumstance, has put us on a first-call basis with several prominent wedding and event planners in metro Atlanta, and even led to us playing the televised 2013 NCAA Final Four Basketball Tournament at the Georgia Dome!
No cookie-cutter music sets here -- we specifically tailor our songlists for your audience so that your guests are fully entertained by hearing the music that they enjoy. We're also happy to accommodate your requests for those “special” songs to make the evening perfect, such as Father/Daughter dances, birthday requests, etc.
We're equally comfortable working directly with clients or coordinating through event planners (one of our band member's wives is a wedding planner, so we fully understand the level of stress and responsibility you're under). We have an exclusive 360-degree feedback process when coordinating events, which allows us to not only meticulously map to the original wedding/event itinerary, but also to be fully prepared and flexible to accommodate the last-minute changes and modifications that so often occur at these events.
Give us a call, and experience why The Excellerators should be the first choice for your entertainment event!

Wedding Reception in Roswell, GA on 02/20/2010
"The Dam Band played our February wedding and rocked the house! We were thrilled to have such a charismatic and talented group to make our wedding perfect. Their song choice was spot on! It was great to look around and see everyone singing along. The lighting added a special touch that kept things feeling lively (and looked GREAT in our wedding photos). And the flow of the evening was perfect. Since the wedding we’ve heard nothing but great things about them from both the staff at the event and the guests who attended. If we did it all over again, we’d pick the Dam Band once again – THANKS FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING SO MUCH FUN!! "
