Spectrum is proud to announce that we are a recipient of the 2019 (and the 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 & 2013) “Best of Weddings" Award from The Knot! We were also honored to receive the 2019 WeddingWire "Couple's Choice" Award as well as this same award for the past 11 years. In fact, we are the ONLY band to win both of these awards for the past 7 consecutive years.
Spectrum was also honored to be inducted into The Knot “Hall of Fame” due to the consistently receiving positive reviews provided from our clients for so many years! We also have many NEW reviews from past clients on theknot.com and weddingwire.com.
We perform for more wedding receptions than any other band in St. Louis and want to perform for you too! We guarantee to deliver a packed dance floor, no silly choreographed dancing musicians, a lively and elegant stage design, and great communication right up until the last dance of the night. We've delivered high energy dance music for over 1,000 weddings so you know you're in good hands!
Our comprehensive web site is fun to review and proudly includes: our complete schedule with past and future dates to give you comfort and establish credibility (we don’t use the tactic of “hiding” our schedule); our huge song list that reflects the musical diversity of the band; hundreds of "current" unsolicited reviews from past clients; plus more video and audio media than any band in the Midwest. We’re confident enough in our performances to show “live” videos rather than being recorded in a sterile studio and pretending to be entertaining an audience. We’ve provided all the tools necessary for you to accurately attend a live audition from the comfort of your own home!
We look forward to performing for you, your family, and your guests. Let the Spectrum Band bring this high level of experience, professionalism, and elegance to your special day!

First off, let me start this review by saying that this band KICKS ASS. The sound was mixed perfectly throughout the night and they kept everybody on the dance floor for the entire night. They truly were one of the highlights of our wedding.
The band went above and beyond in all aspects of the event. Their manager, Tim Callihan, (who also plays drums for the band) was amazing and very, very responsive. His availability by email and phone was astounding. I returned one of his phone calls at one point and he pulled his car over to the side of the highway so that he could take my call right then and there - this is the type of person you want in your corner on your wedding day. Knowing that Tim (and Spectrum Band) cared about our wedding day as much we did relieved any anxiety that I had with regard to the music for the reception.
Sincerely, this band was the life of the party! My wife and I spoke about the reception and remarked how we saw some family members dancing who we had NEVER seen dance before ever (even at other weddings)! Wonderful job; if we ever have another event in St. Louis, Spectrum Band will be the first that we contact!
I was curious to see how the band would be received given that my family is full of musicians (my parents were professional musicians and played something like 50-60 weddings on weekends as I was growing up; my brother writes musicals and teaches improv in L.A.; my mother and her sisters grew up singing in various groups and love all things musical) and they LOVED the band. By all accounts, they truly kicked ass.
This band will give you everything and more that you hope for on your wedding day.
P.S. - They like to have control over the flow of the music and this should not be a concern; rather, this is something you should take comfort in. They know how to control a dance floor and they do a great job keeping the guests engaged and dancing throughout the night.

I was initially nervous about a live band. However, I couldn't be happier we decided to have this band. They were excellent and the dance floor was full the entire time because of it. Easy to work with, professional, excellent musicians and thoroughly enjoyed by the guests and us (the bride and groom). I can't reccomend them highly enough!

At the wedding, my expectations were blown away! They made our wedding night more memorable and fun than I could ever have imagined. Spectrum Band was so flexible, accommodating, and professional in the planning process. They are nice down-to-earth people who love playing music for others. Our guests were on the dance floor all night with us! I would absolutely work with Spectrum again for any family event!
"I had the distinct pleasure last night of photographing the Spectrum Band during their performance at the Coronado Ballroom in St. Louis, Mo. The music was absolutely superb, the atmosphere electric, and I had a front row seat! Spectrum Band is a professional 9-piece variety dance band that specializes in wedding receptions, corporate parties and public events in the St. Louis, Mo area; and, they have been doing it for over 20 years. I have to say; when I say they are good, I mean they are good! - As in REALLY REALLY GOOD! I could not recommend them highly enough for any event, especially weddings. Tim Callihan, the band leader, drummer and one of the original members, and I had been corresponding for several weeks on the subject of weddings and receptions. During the course of those conversations, Tim mentioned that they were needing some updated images for the website, and wanted to know if I was interested in shooting them. As it turned out, we had the time available and I have a policy to never turn down the opportunity to work with the best; and that is exactly what Spectrum Band is, the best. Not to mention, watching them work under the wonderful and electric atmosphere of the Coronado Ballroom, which is one of the premier wedding reception venues in the entire Midwest. --- Event: Fundraising event for the Asthma & Allergy Foundation held at The Coronado" - March 10, 2012
We are big fans of Spectrum Band. If you want a great band with great vocals and brass, this is the band for you. They are great to work with and have many years of experience. They are not just one singer with one sound. You will love how they get your guests up to dance and celebrate your Wedding with you.
True professionals delivering a quality performance! We recommend Spectrum Band to our clients.
