Downtime is a professional band in which each member has more than 10 years of performing experience. We play at weddings, corporate events and private parties. Being based out of St. Louis, allows us to travel throughout the Midwest very easily. Our goal is to provide fun and professional musical entertainment of all genres to all audiences. With Downtime’s wide variety of music, high energy, and quality sound, everyone will be sure to have a great time.
The variety of our comprehensive song list allows us to satisfy any audience. We are willing to learn, rehearse and perform up to 2 songs that can be included throughout the special night (such as the bride/groom first dance, father-daughter dance, etc.). Music will be provided during all band breaks to ensure continuous listening pleasure. The break music list can be collaboratively decided upon to supply the desired blend of musical diversity that best fits the special event. The band also offers a continuous band option where the band does not take a break. This can be requested for an additional cost. Emceeing adaptations will be made at the client’s discretion, as well as band size, instrumentation and acoustical levels to accommodate any facility. Included will also be a meeting up to a month prior to your event with Jon. Dance lights are an option at the request of the client. The group’s standard attire is a formal tuxedo for weddings and corporate parties, but casual wear is also available upon request. With the vast selection of options, Downtime guarantees complete satisfaction.
Downtime offers many different options for the variety band. Alterations to any of the following groups can be made to best fit any wedding reception or event.

Great choice for our big day!
Downtime were fantastic! We had them for our wedding earlier this month and we were so pleased with our choice! Working to get them booked was an easy process through ABE and working with Jon leading up to the event was also very easy. He was great to work with in helping to finalize the set list for our event and all of the fine details and was very responsive to emails throughout. On the day of, they were set up on time, professional and put on a great show! We especially loved the young woman on vocals and it was great to see our guests up and dancing all night long! Overall, they were a great addition to our big day and we had a blast! Thanks so much Downtime!Sent on 06/16/2019

My Wife and I knew from the beginning that we wanted a band for our wedding. After lots of research and recommendations from our Wedding Planner, we came across Downtime. We knew immediately Downtime was right for us as soon as we heard their sound. From the horn section, male/female vocals, to the talented musicians, it was a perfect fit for us. During the wedding reception, Downtime exceeded all of our expectations. They were very good at keeping the energy high and smoothly transitioning into songs. I appreciated the mashups that the band performed as well. The song selection was on point and we could tell they looked at our song selection sheet when planning their set list. Not only was the 8-Piece band wonderful, our Jazz Trio Band during dinner was fantastic. We received just many compliments for the Trio as we did for the full piece band. Thank you Downtime for making our wedding a night we will never forget!Sent on 09/15/2018

We loved the Downtime Band! We had the 9 piece band with three lead singers. They were amazing! They listed to our song requests, and knew which types of music to get the dancing going. They played a good mix of fast and slow songs and the singers killed it! Our guests were raving about how amazing they were. Several people told me days after the wedding that they were still thinking about how good the band was! Jon Spindler was great to work with. I highly recommend the Downtime Band if you’re looking for a dance party all night!Sent on 06/09/2017
Downtime Productions? Simply the best! Jon insures that every client is a happy client-- he and the band produce fabulous music, excellent energy and outstanding customer service. Don't hesitate, book them before someone else does! We LOVE Downtime Productions!
What an amazing company to work with! Jon Spindler is reliable, professional and very knowledgeable of his craft. I have worked with him and every band Downtime offers on all kinds of events, from Wedding Receptions, to Corporate events, to Black Tie Galas. They have just the right amount of entertainment options to match my event needs and I trust that it is quality music every time. If you need a ten piece band or a three piece jazz trio I highly recommend Downtime Productions!
Downtime Band is awesome! By far my favorite band to work with. They play music you want to hear and keep it going all night long.
