Spectrum is proud to announce that we are a recipient of the 2015 (and the 2014 & 2013) “Best of Weddings” award from The Knot! We were also honored to receive the WeddingWire 2015 "Couple's Award" as well as this same award for the past 6 years. We also have many NEW reviews from past clients on theknot.com and weddingwire.com. We were also selected by CBS/KMOX as one of the "Top Wedding Bands in St. Louis". Additionally, we were selected as the "Best Band in Missouri" in the Modern Bride national magazine for two years in a row! We are an award winning 9-piece dance band that is one of the most requested and entertaining professional local bands for St. Louis weddings as you can see from the band's web site schedule. Instrumentation is: Male & Female Lead Vocalists Background, Keyboard, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Saxophone, Trumpet, and Trombone.

Spectrum is one of the most requested and entertaining professional bands in St. Louis for private parties. We are one of the few preferred bands at: the Coronado Ballroom, St. Louis Palladium, Renaissance Grand, Wildwood Hotel & Conference Center, Ritz-Carlton, Chase Park Plaza, Kemoll's Top of the Met, Kemp Auto Museum, Windows On/Off Washington, Sheraton City Center, Frontenac Hilton, and most of the local country clubs. Visit our web site to see more than 200 St. Louis venues where we’ve performed.

Spectrum is based in Chesterfield, MO and is comprised of some of St. Louis' BEST professional musicians as you can easily confirm by reviewing our extensive audio and video demos. We have the talent necessary to surpass your expectations and ensure that you experience the best band possible at your ceremony and reception. We provide a “real” state-of-the-art sound system that’s continuously being upgraded for perfect CD audio quality and a new light system with 32 LED arrays for a stage appearance that is absolutely dazzling. Our latest addition (that is only offered by Spectrum) is the flagship TD-30 electronic drum set from Roland. It not only looks great and makes the songs sound exactly like the originals but it also allows us to have complete control of the band’s volume. Experience it via our brand new videos.

The Wildwood Hotel had their first New Year’s Eve party and they were concerned about ticket sales prior to the event. They hired Spectrum Band to capitalize on our reputation in West County and it was a SOLD OUT event! We even performed for an additional 30 minutes since the crowd was having such a great time.

One of our most important features is that two professional engineers are always on site for each performance to ensure that the sound/volume and lighting are always perfect! You can be assured that our musicians are not awkwardly trying to run the sound and light systems while performing on stage.

We have been performing for over 20 years and featured in "Southern Living Magazine", "St. Louis Bride Magazine", "Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine", "Post-Dispatch", "Best Bridal", "Modern Bride Magazine", and recently featured as one of only two bands in "The St. Louis Wedding Book". We were also featured in the international magazine "Modern Drummer" as one of the most successful local bands in the country. We are members of the American Federation of Musicians and can provide proof of liability insurance upon request (always ask).

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 26 videos and 85 audio demos. Our brand new “live performance” high-definition DVD with 26 full-length songs is available and you can preview it by searching for us on youtube. We’ve provided all the tools necessary for you to accurately attend a live audition from the comfort of your own home!

SPECTRUM OFFERS THESE ADVANTAGES:

We perform a huge variety of music to satisfy diverse audiences of all ages and keep the party lively and the dance floor full. Read our testimonials to be confident of success at your event.

The largest video and audio library of any band! We offer 24 full-length song videos from a “live” performance so you can accurately audition us and assess how we compare to other bands.

Two professional engineers are provided at each performance to unobtrusively monitor sound quality via a wireless ipad to ensure the volume and lighting are always perfect!

A continuously upgraded sound and light system to deliver a stellar show every time

We use a "real" horn section and custom charts on stage, not an add-on group of musicians. It's impossible to correctly play complex horn arrangements without custom charts on stage.

All musicians use in-ear monitors and we are the only local band using the brand new Roland TD-30 flagship electronic drum set allowing absolute control of the volume in the room. The new drum set also makes the songs sound exactly like the original recordings so that's another huge advantage of this feature.

Spectrum always maintains a significant liability insurance policy for your protection

Over 20 award winning years of experience and national recognition to ensure success

Most of our bookings are from guests that attended a previous performance and they want to guarantee the same quality and excitement at their event. We've performed at events as small as 40 guests and as large as 5,000 (we opened for ZZ Top at the Scottrade Center during an IBM international conference), so we know how to make your wedding a tremendous success. Let the Spectrum Band bring this high level of experience, professionalism, and elegance to your special day!

If I can help in any way I'll be right here for you and we look forward to performing for you, your family, and your guests.

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 :)

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!
