This band is THE BEST. I first heard them two years ago at my niece' wedding. When my daughter got engaged one of the first things I did was book The Spectrum Band. First of all, they are VERY easy to work with. Second - They played background music during dinner which was very nice. Third - they kept people on the dance floor all night. At the end of the evening it was still packed. I cannot begin to count how many people raved about them to me. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. I HIGHLY recommend.
We had Spectrum Band at our daughters wedding, Tim and the entire band so wonderful!!! We had so many people come to us to say what a great band. Everyone loved them!!!
We were more than pleased with the Spectrum Band. As mother of the bride I knew that I wanted this band for my daughter's wedding long before she was engaged and was so happy that she too agreed after hearing them at Faust Park one night during the summer that this would be her music for the big day. The band plays a variety of music and manages to keep people on the dance floor. The volume of the music was perfect . . . you could still carry on a conversation while the music played. Very talented musicians. Tim Callahan from Spectrum was wonderful to work with. He gave me the confidence that everything would flow smoothly that evening by going over the timeline for cocktail hour, bridal party entrance, cake cutting, dinner, speeches, etc. well in advance of the wedding day . . . and everything went as planned. Any time an announcement had to be made such as a reminder for guests to visit the photo booth or dessert table, a designated band member was available to do so. I loved seeing so many of our guests dance and sing along to this great music! And the majority of them stayed til the very end of the reception. Great job Spectrum Band!
Spectrum Band is the first vendor we booked for our wedding day! They performed at my wedding reception and were absolutely amazing! They are extremely talented and their music and vocals are awesome! It really set a wonderful mood for our guests by playing during cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing! The week of my wedding I asked if they could end our first dance song at a certain time due to choreography which they did with no issues and without any rehearsing the timing was perfect! The songs they chose were great for slow and fast dancing and they even got my non-dancing friends out on the dance floor. I highly recommend them! Book early!
All you ladies (and gents) out there: You’re Welcome. I’ve done the work for you and you have to look no further on finding the band for your wedding. Hiring Spectrum was one of the best decisions we made and I promise you we did not come to the decision lightly. My fiancé and I decided that the music --and the open bar--were the most important things and we needed to make sure both were fantastic. I researched bands for weeks and made many MANY phone calls with my list of questions. I pored over YouTube videos. When I finally talked to Tim, Spectrum’s band manager, something just felt so right. Tim took his time talking with me and patiently answered all my inquiries, kindly embracing my neurotic nature. He was so responsive and thorough and literally would spend hours on the phone with me making sure I had exactly what I wanted; he promised the wedding night would go off without a hitch. Boy, did it ever! We got married at the Missouri Athletic Club (a somewhat fancy affair) and Spectrum blew it out of the park. Cocktail hour with sax and piano were such a hit that I saw guests literally standing and watching them play. Ray also MC’ed for us and did such a great job introducing the party and keeping the whole wedding on track. Cut to after dinner when the full band took the stage. The dancing DID. NOT. STOP. We had 150 people shaking what their mamas gave them on the floor for 4 hours! Spectrum knew how to read the crowd and played the all the best tunes from all generations. We couldn’t have been more thrilled and you are crazy if you hire anyone else. Worth. Every. Penny.
Thank you for everything, the band was amazing! All of our guest had a great time dancing thanks to you. I will highly recommends ou to everyone I know!
Spectrum was the most incredible band. Before the wedding, they were extremely responsive and accommodating with all of my emails and requests. They were a pleasure to speak with. The dance floor was packed (very good "problem" to have), and people were dancing until the very end of the night. I strongly believe it was because of Spectrum's music choices, talent and professionalism. They have an amazing presence on stage. Each and every one of them is a talented musician/artist. I've received many compliments about how amazing the band was at my wedding. I would recommend Spectrum to everyone! You will have an amazing time at your event with them there!
The BEST band in this region is Spectrum Band! Their magnificent 9 person group played Saturday night July 11, 2015 for our daughter’s wedding at the Chase Park Plaza. The variety of music they played between the superb male and female vocalists, the keyboard and brass section was incredible, to say the least. The saxophone player, Ray, was also our M.C. for the evening introducing the wedding party, etc. It is a must to hear him play, but when he sang a solo of Louis Armstrong’s “What a wonderful world,” you couldn’t believe it was not Louis himself singing! Their fantastic drummer and business manager, Tim, was so organized and easy to work with in the planning stages of the wedding reception that it took a lot of pressure off. They will learn songs by special request for key dances without any problem, but they have a “spectrum” of hundreds of songs they already know for you to choose from. And they are so professional, they can “read” the audience and know how to tailor their music sets to get everyone up dancing and enjoying themselves. Many of our guests commented on how much they loved our choice of live music and said the experience was superb compared to other bands they had heard and especially compared to any DJ’s. There is no doubt in my mind why they have been honored by awards year after year for their excellence!

Hiring Spectrum for my daughter’s wedding reception was one the best decisions we made. I spent a lot of time researching different bands. I finally made my decision based on feedback from the catering managers of several hotels. After exchanging a few emails with the manager, Tim, I knew we were in good hands. It was an absolute pleasure working with him during the planning stages. He was extremely responsive in terms of answering questions and replying to emails. When I realized we would need a microphone and speakers for the wedding ceremony, Tim arranged that for us, too.
I appreciated how easy it was to manage the cost thanks to the band’s different options. We opted for iPod music during the cocktail hour and dinner as a way to lower the cost. They also allow you to choose the number of musicians.
I lost track of the number of guests who told us how much they enjoyed the band. The dance floor was packed the entire night. Tim asked us in advance if we wanted to select songs or let the band make the choices based on the interest of the guests. I had complete faith in them to make the decisions and they were spot-on. Many guests said it was the best wedding reception they had ever attended and asked for the band’s business card.
As if all of that was not enough for me to sing their praises, they surprised us with recordings of the father-of-the-bride, maid of honor, and best man speeches.
Spectrum Ban exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend them!
I cannot thank Tim Callihan and his talented musicians for making my daughter Maura’s wedding so much fun and memorable! Spectrum played above and beyond our expectations. We had so many people on the dance floor from start to finish due to Spectrum’s high-quality singing and musical instrument talent! Working with Tim was a pure joy as well. He was extremely patient, flexible and responsive to all our needs. I would highly recommend Spectrum to any bride and groom! Thank you, thank you!
When my daughter told me the date they selected for the wedding, the first thing I did was to search for a band. I searched for different bands in the St. Louis area and listened to many band performance and watched many videos. Once I heard Spectrum, I immediately called to see if the date was available and fortunately for me it was,
The best thing that we did for our daughter's wedding was to hire the Spectrum Band. Their performance was totally outstanding and just had our guest in amazement. Seven instruments and 2 vocalist performed an outstanding show. It was as if we attended a concert. We received so many excellent comments for our selection for the music. We also elected to go with their lighting package, which was fabulous and they were able to match the color theme of the wedding perfectly.
Outside of the outstanding music, what really impressed me was the eight months of communications between myself and the band manager Tim Callihan. The correspondence and the attention to detail was outstanding. Over the eight past months of communicating with prompt replies back-and-forth making sure that every detail was going to be covered on the day of the event. Not only did I find an excellent band for my daughter's wedding I believe I made a friend as well.
Spectrum band was a great addition to our wedding celebration. They played exactly what we wanted, took requests from guests and kept the dance floor full until the end of the evening. The sound technician was great. We were able to have a conversation on the dance floor and the guest were able to stay in the ballroom and celebrate the entire night. I would definitely recommend the Spectrum Band and will probably use them again. Thanks, Tim!
I had seen the Spectrum Band previously at another wedding and knew that I wanted them to play my wedding as well. While I was looking over the band’s options, I also knew that I didn't have too many decorations so I definitely wanted the band’s lighting package (it was well worth it!). Tim followed up with me often to make sure everything was good and that I was getting all the information I needed, and he even checked in with me while he was on vacation (now that’s service!). As expected, the band’s performance was awesome, and EVERYONE was coming up to me telling me how great they were. It had me feeling that it was money well spent. Not only was the performance great, they were amazing with the kids. It’s impossible to express how truly impressed I was with the whole experience. I normally do not write reviews, but I felt compelled in this instance because the band exceeded my highest expectations. This is, without a doubt, the best band with the best musicians. I would name drop but everyone in the band was so awesome and so kind to me and my husband. They were truly worth every penny. If you’re looking for exceptional communication throughout your wedding process and a band that genuinely seems to care about you and your family, I highly recommend the Spectrum Band because it was a night I will never forget.
Spectrum was everything I wanted for my wedding day and more! Not one of my guests stopped dancing all night and I have gotten so many compliments about how wonderful they were. Not only are they great performers, but extremly easy, informative, and so helpful to work with! Tim was in constant contact and answered any questions that I had extremely quickly. He made any stress I had about the day completely disappear. I highly recommend Spectrum and can't wait to see them again for my friends wedding in September :)
Spectrum did an amazing job for our wedding. I was a little nervous hiring a band without seeing them live first, but Spectrum was great!! Tim is organized and responsive with his emails - which is so nice when you are in the last few chaotic weeks before the wedding. The music was perfect - people were on the dance floor all night long. We had so many people telling us how great the band was. Highly recommend!!
This band is amazing. Not only was their performance great at the reception, but the owner is SO flexible & easy to work with. They even surprised me the next day by sending me audio files of all the speeches at the reception - priceless. It is a full month after my wedding and we are still receiving comments about how awesome the band was. I cannot say enough good things about this band. Highly, highly recommended. I can't wait to plan another party so I can use them again!
