Why they are cool: Austrian pop group My Excellence have made the official campaign song for Seal the Deal! called: "Come On (Seal the Deal)".
My Excellence members, singer and songwriter Richie Ulmer, guitarist Chris Kolasinski, Michael Pint on bass and drummer Paul Schneider, performed the song for the first time live on August 28 at a ceremony at the United Nations Office in Vienna attended by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
Cool Facts: The Vienna based band mixes pop, punk and classical music and according to their website, aim to write a whole new type of classical music that uses the biggest classical melodies arranged to sound like contemporary music. Their debut album "Pomp's Not Dead", released in 2009, was inspired by the spirits of Mozart and Bach, creating their very own punk as “homage to the geniuses of classical music”.
