This is the second family wedding for which we hired this band. They kept everyone dancing the whole time; great music and a very fun vibe. They were also willing to learn a new song or two for the first dance and provided the emcee services. Highly recommend!

Do you want your wedding to ROCK!?

My wife and I were so pleased with Spectrum bands performance, and our guests loved them as well. Their selection of songs was incredible, and they collaborated so seamlessly with our coordinator and caterer, it was very hands off. I could not recommend them more. Nothing beats live music.

Spectrum Crushed It

Sean was a great contact throughout the year plus we had Spectrum booked for our wedding. There was weather issues the day of, but Sean communicated well and a great solution was found.

The band took our song suggestions and turned out two epic sets. The fact that the band can cover Sinatra to MJ to RHCP is a masterclass is making it happen. We danced hard, the band jammed, and it will be a night I'll never forget! Absolutely a five-star band.

"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.
