Dakkota (NOT DAKOTA) is a North Carolina-based country music band. The group, composed of four Elon College graduates, was brought together while attending Elon College as undergraduates. Though their academic courses of study varied extensively, they each shared a common passion for music. Brought together by a remarkable combination of fate and pure coincidence, Dakkota was born in early January of 1994. While they were in school and since they have graduated, Dakkota has experienced lows which should justify a "VH1 documetary" and highs which could have awarded them "CMA Entertainers of The Year". Through it all, the group has retained its four original members and surprisingly continues to share the lust for America's greatest music format, country music.

Dakkota has built a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in the SE United States. Touring extensively since 1994, they've entertained crowds from New York to Florida and from Delaware to Kansas City, MO. Their perseverance has awarded them "Country Music Entertainers of the Year" for five consecutive years by the National Association of Campus Activities (NACA). In 1999 and in 2000 they won the Nat'l award for "Best Band" for the "Assocation for the Promotion of Campus Activities (APCA)".

Dakkota is one of the fastest growing, most talented country music groups in the industry today. A rapidly growing fan club and extensive tour schedule have rewarded them with popularity across the country. Their combined talents as songwriters and live performers has launched them into the ranks of today's up and coming country artists.
