The Expandables

Why book The Expandables?

The Southeast's premier 1950's cover band is the perfect high-energy fit for your next party or event! The Expandables are a non-stop rock and roll dance party, playing only the best from the original titans of rock, from Elvis to Little Richard to Chuck Berry and all points in between. The Expandables sound as good as they look, and they look TERRIFFIC.





Highly Recommend The Expandables

I have seen The Expandables at 3 different venues. Oasis, Rogue Tavern, and Avondale Brewery. Each time I saw them they were great! The lead singers have great stage presence, always smile, and they get the crowd on their feet. As soon as the first song starts people do not wait to start dancing, the crowd is on the dance floor immediately. The expandables play up beat 1950's dance music and are entertaining and talented! I highly recommend the Expandables for your next event!

Rocked out on our Wedding Night!

We had The Expandables play our wedding reception, and they were better than we could have ever hoped. Whether or not you know music from the '50's, you will find yourself dancing until your feet hurt. They were both professional and easy to approach/contact from our initial communication to the night itself. They played off the feel of the crowd and ended the evening with a boom! We will never forget that night in large part to The Expandables!

The Expandables: High Energy and Fun Rock N Roll!

I saw this band Friday night at The Rogue Tavern, and they were so fun! They played the best 1950's rock n roll hits and were so entertaining! I look forward to rocking out with them again!
