About Accolade

Accolade (formerly known as Pleasure Groove) specializes in elegant, fun, high energy wedding receptions and corporate 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 wedding or private event band. The Accolade experience is guaranteed to give you and your guests an evening they'll never forget.

Accolade is a 7-piece band specializing in 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. From 2001-2011, the band was known as Pleasure Groove. 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. 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.

Whatever the occasion, Accolade is the perfect dance band to help bring your special event alive.

    Accolade played for our daughter's wedding and we could not have been happier with this decision! Mark was wonderful to work with and made some great suggestions based on his experience. The wedding party and guests loved the band and the dance floor was packed all night.

    I did not even have to think about providing a rating of 5 on every category. Accolade was incredibly easy to work with, and I can't imagine anyone throwing them more curves than we did. They were so accommodating to every whim (and some requests were in that category). Now let's talk about the quality of the music. They are one of the most versatile bands I have ever heard, and they have a very professional look. They provided cocktail music, which went to dinner music, which went to dance music. They can play anything, and I mean anything, and they will play it at the appropriate decibel level. People of all ages were on the dance floor until the final moment, and there was a chant of "encore" for a while when the band said goodnight. And this chant came from a lot of people.

    I would recommend Accolade to absolutely anybody. They were the perfect band for our wedding day. Mark was extremely accommodating throughout the planning process, and also very responsive. He made everything leading up to the big day very easy. Their actual performance blew me away. They provided the perfect background music during dinner, and from the moment the dancing started, they were phenomenal. They brought a ton of energy and sounded amazing. Everybody in attendance had a fabulous time, and so many of our guests complimented us on our band choice. People were shocked that this is just a hobby for Accolade - they truly sound as if this is their one and only profession. I'm a musician myself, so I feel I have higher standards than most brides, and I was incredibly impressed.

    Pleasure Groove is fabulous. They had the dance floor full all night and were a joy to work with. I hope to work with again soon!

    Pleasure Groove can simply be described as a crowd favorite! Not only is the group very professional and easy to work with, they will go above and beyond to accede the client’s requests and expectations. When we are onsite at an event with Pleasure Groove we are at ease knowing that they will be eloquent and efficient as they emcee the event. Of course it is topped off with incredible vocals and excellent musicians. Lead vocalists Philippe Crymes and Robyn Moore are a power house duo that will leave goose bumps on the arms of your guests. Thank you to the group for the incredible events we have already completed; we very much look forward to working with you in the future!

    What can I say, Pleasure Groove Band is AWESOME ! We hated to leave the wedding when our job was done. All we wanted to do is sit and enjoy the music. I have heard alot of bands, yet this one stands out above the rest. If you are looking for one for your wedding reception, these are the people to call.
