"Spectrum Band provided the best live music and entertainment I've ever heard at any wedding. Before the wedding day, Tim, the band's manager (also a member of the band) was in excellent communication with us to make sure we had everything we wanted covered and planned out. The actual music at the reception couldn't have been more fun and was exactly what we wanted. The band's performance, sound quality, lighting, and selection of songs kept our party going the entire time. Thanks so much to Spectrum for making our reception such a blast! --- The reception was at the Coronado Ballroom" - May 14, 2017

"We received these two nice follow-up notes from one of our recent wedding couples after we performed for their reception. ******** Tim: I can't thank you enough for providing the best live music I've ever heard at any wedding. I might be a bit biased since it was our wedding but the music, band, dance floor, and lighting couldn't have been more perfect. Thank you for keeping the crowd going the whole night and also for only taking one break! Thank you so much again, we will definitely use you guys if and when we ever need some live entertainment! Please pass along our thanks to the rest of your band. Thanks, Ted Lane ----------- Tim: We just got back from our honeymoon, so I am working on catching up on my emails today :) You guys were amazing, we have heard from sooo many of our guests about how great the band was! It is definitely a compliment to you guys that the dance floor was so crowded the whole night, we could not have had a better time! Ted and I will definitely spread the word to all of our engaged friends about how much we loved working with you and having you at our reception. Thanks again!

"YAAASSSSS!!!!! They far exceeded our expectations. We found them by searching this website, watched their Youtube video, and agreed that if they were booked over a year out they must be worth it. Spectrum blew everyone away! Every single guest was on the dance floor until the very last song and even begged for "one more song." Do yourself a favor and book Spectrum now! --- The reception was at the Coronado Ballroom" - April 25, 2017

"Absolutely, hands down, 100% hire Spectrum for your wedding, or any event for that matter, if you want your guests to enjoy themselves.

Well done and thank you! --- The reception was at the Coronado Ballroom" - April 23, 2017

"Spectrum was awesome! Our guests loved the live music and the dance floor was packed! The band did a great job reading the crowd to know what to play next.

As I'm sure you've seen over the years, the bride and groom want everything to go off without a hitch and inevitably they worry about every little detail. While Julie and I may be a bit anxious, we know not to be concerned about our venue and choice for our musical entertainment. Both will be flawless.

"We hired Spectrum to play at our wedding and we could not be more pleased with how everything went. In the planning stages, they were prompt with their responses and very organized with all of our information. Tim was more than willing to meet with me to discuss in person “day of” details. At the wedding, they were amazing. They created a playlist of songs that kept my guests on the dance floor the entire evening. Almost three weeks later, I am still receiving compliments on the band. If you are considering a band for your wedding, I would highly recommend Spectrum. It will be the best and easiest decision you will make throughout your planning process. --- The reception was at Bissinger's Caramel Room" - November 26, 2016

"If you are looking for a wedding band you should look no further than Spectrum band. They performed at our wedding on Saturday and did an absolutely amazing job!!! Spectrum was the first thing we booked after our venue, and my husband and I are so glad we did. The dance floor was filled for the entire reception and we have received so many compliments on the band from our guests, many saying it was the best wedding band they have heard.

Working with you from the time of booking through the wedding day was so easy and seamless. You and the band truly made our wedding a magical evening and one we will never forget!

You guys did such an incredible job! Thank you for playing your hearts out and rocking the group into the late hours. I couldn't have imagined a better evening for Laura and me, and Spectrum was the main source of fuel in the party tank. Woot woot!

"Spectrum Band was absolutely fantastic for my wedding! My husband and I met Tim, the band manager, and listened to the band during a friend's wedding last year. We knew we had to book them and surprisingly they were available for our wedding! You can just tell that they love what they do and they made our whole night so much fun! They were very flexible and able to change the order of speeches, blessing, and announce our first dance on the fly. We had the pianist during our ceremony, a trio during the cocktail hour and the full band during our reception. The pianist even learned to play the song that I wanted to walk down the aisle to, which was such a special surprise! They kept people dancing all night and they made our wedding so much fun! --- The reception was at Wine Country Gardens" - November 7, 2016

"Three weeks after our daughter's wedding reception we are still getting wonderful compliments on our band selection. Tim was extremely helpful from the planning process through the reception. They even learned a special song for the reception and I could have sworn it was a soundtrack. They connect with the audience and feel out what music fits best. They can play it all. The dance floor was packed from the beginning to the end and no one wanted it to end. We had the nine-piece band and the duo for happy hour. This also included two engineers for the night. I could not believe what we got for our money. What a value. They truly enjoy performing and it is contagious. My suggestion is to book them early and certainly pick a few special songs, but let them do their thing. They are the best! --- The reception was at Old Hickory Golf Club" - October 31, 2016

"Hi Tim: Tim and I just got back from our honeymoon and we can't stop talking about our amazing wedding -- especially the band!! From the beautiful music during dinner to the special first dance songs, Tim and I knew the rest of the evening would be amazing and wow did Spectrum blow us away! Tim and I did not leave the dance floor and absolutely loved the songs the band performed. I think it is safe to say that our guests would agree with us since the dance floor was packed from the time Spectrum started until the end of the evening. Our guests kept commenting on how amazing the music and vocalists were and we couldn't agree more! We definitely noticed and really appreciated the band only taking one break during the evening. We know this made for a long night for all of you, but it meant a lot to us, and hopefully you enjoyed the lively crowd! We can't thank you enough for helping to make this a night we will always remember. Best of luck to you and the band in the future! We hope to hear you all again soon! Thanks!

"Hi Tim, I am just now catching my breath after an absolutely wonderful wedding weekend for Julie and Tim, and I wanted to write to you. On behalf of my husband Bodie, and Julie and Tim, I cannot thank you and Spectrum enough for the fabulous job all of you did to make the wedding reception so special! The music during dinner was perfect and it was always reassuring to have Ray there to lead us through the process. The first dances were so special and when you did your magic and got everyone up and out on the dance floor, we knew it was going to be the fun dance party we wanted! The music could not have been better and the vocalists were amazing. Your darling female vocalist was smiling every time I looked her way, and you could just tell that your group truly enjoys what they do. I can't tell you how many of our guests have told me that your band was the best they've ever heard! We agree! You know that when the dance floor is still packed at the end of the evening (even with the older generation), the party has been a huge success. We realize that you took only one break, and we truly appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity in doing that. We will always be happy to recommend Spectrum and you can use our names for referrals any time! All the best to you and the Band!

"Thank you so so so much for such an amazing night with fabulous music! Spectrum Band was absolutely AMAZING at our wedding! Tim Callihan is great to work with - professional, responds promptly to emails/calls, and provides valuable advice. All of the music sounded amazing from the quartet during cocktail hour and dinner to the full band for the reception. The dance floor was packed the entire night and so many of our guests raved about how awesome the band was. Thank you for making our wedding so fun!

"I am the mother of the bride and did not handle the arrangements with the band. My daughter and now son-in-law chose the band and corresponded with them about the songs, timing, etc. I could not, however, have been more pleased. We had some special requests ie. shortening all of the first dance numbers (for the father/daughter dance, for example) to about 90 seconds which the band accommodated. They were easy to get along with and sounded AMAZING!! Friends of the bride and groom as well as our friends were raving about them! The dance floor was filled all night and the band was taking requests. There was a great chant for "one more song" at the end which they graciously answered with, I think, 2 songs! Great band!!! --- The reception was at Old Warson Country Club" - August 20, 2016

"Spectrum Band was absolutely incredible in every aspect. As a bride and groom, there is nothing more reassuring than good communication. Even with the silliest of questions, Tim Callihan always responded the same day, sometimes within minutes. At the wedding, communication was just as good and the band was quick with any changes needed. We opted to trust them with musical selections appropriate for our guest list and they exceeded our expectations by far. Every one of our guests were on the dance floor, from 2 year olds to 80 year olds. The compliment we received from most of our guests was, "OMG that band was amazing!" Since it was a location wedding we were unable to see/hear them in person before the day of the wedding. We chose Spectrum Band based on their rating on theKnot.com and reviews on their website and hired them only having heard their playing online. We are so happy with our decision to hire them, and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band for their wedding, or any special occasion. Long story short: If they're available for your date, book Spectrum Band ASAP! --- The reception was at Barnett On Washington" - August 13, 2016

"I honestly don't even know where to begin when writing this review. Spectrum Band was hands-down the BEST decision we made when it came to our wedding! Tim is a Superstar...communicated everything to us in a timely fashion and took care of every detail so we didn't have to worry about a thing! And the band absolutely knocked it out of the park! Our dance floor was packed from the first chord of the first song to the very last song of the night! Our guests were absolutely blown away by how talented the band was and how fun they made the whole night. This group is the real deal.

"We first heard Spectrum at our friend's wedding in 2013. They made such an impression that when we got engaged a few years later, one of the first things that we did was book Spectrum for our June 2016 wedding. Of course, it was one of the best decisions we have ever made! Not only was Tim extremely responsive, he was patient with all of our questions and offered great advice. They provided emcee services and at the last minute even offered to sing our "parent's dance" song live (originally planned to be played on an iPod)... which was so lovely! They kept our guests on the dance floor the entire evening and worked in their requests. The atmosphere was amazing and we received so many compliments from our guests.

"Thanks for the "phenomenal" review Elisabeth! --- Spectrum was fantastic from the beginning of the planning process to their performance at our wedding! Tim (the band's drummer and contact person) is extremely organized, professional, experienced, and very prompt in responding to all the necessary logistical emails. Planning a wedding and managing all the details and different vendors can be really stressful, but Tim made it so easy - the band was the one element I never had to worry about! Their performance at our wedding was phenomenal - we had people (including me and my new husband) on the dance floor all night long, and people kept approaching my parents throughout the night to comment on how great the band was!

"Thanks for the excellent review Amanda! --- We cannot say enough about how wonderful the Spectrum Band was! They truly transformed our ceremony and reception into the most amazing and perfect wedding we could have ever asked for! They were incredibly responsive and profession and flexible. Only a couple of months before the wedding, our ceremony musicians had to cancel on us! But we immediately contacted the Spectrum Band to see if they could fill in and help. Not only were they able to provide us a trio for the ceremony but they helped us design our ceremony music and played everything we asked them to, even a Disney song that I wanted to walk down the aisle to! They customized our ceremony music, cocktail hour music and reception music to exactly what we wanted. They kept the energy up the whole time for our guests and kept everyone on the dance floor without ever being cheesy or drawing attention away from us on our special day. We cannot thank them enough for their service and we will recommend them to everyone for their weddings! --- The reception was at The Old Barn Inns at St. Albans, MO" - June 15, 2016

"Thanks for the excellent review Jenny! --- Spectrum Band was one of the best decisions we made for our reception!! I can genuinely say that having Spectrum there brought an amazing energy to our evening that we would not have had with a DJ or another band. They are classy and very professional, but are also so fun! They cover a wide range of songs/genres, and did a great job keeping the party going all evening! I absolutely loved having our first dance, father-daughter dance, etc. played by a talented live band. And the piano/cello for our cocktail hour was to die for - they set the perfect vibe/mood for our reception. Honestly, the sound made me feel like I was at a cocktail hour right out of a movie! It could not have been more perfect. We had multiple guests ask us about the band because they were so impressed with them. Not only do they do a wonderful job performing, but they are also friendly and great to work with. Tim is very quick to respond to any and all questions you may have, and they did an excellent job introducing the events of the evening, etc. Bottom line, if you are looking for a fun, energetic evening as you celebrate with friends and family, then ditch the DJ and book Spectrum Band instead!! They are very reasonably priced and well worth your money. Thank you SO much Spectrum Band for making our evening memorable and keeping us out on the dance floor all night!

I was too busy enjoying your performance to talk, but my parents were very impressed and relayed to me afterwards how many people approached them about Spectrum's talent and how much they enjoyed the band!

"Thanks for the excellent review Debbie! --- We chose Spectrum Band for my first daughter's wedding and upon my second daughter's engagement, called Spectrum to book them for the second wedding. Tim is still the very organized manager handling all the business arrangements - he's responsive and detail-oriented and was always a pleasure to work with throughout the process. That was one vendor I never worried about! Several musicians were in the band for both weddings and their sounds are contemporary and had our guests on the dance floor from the moment they began until the end of the night when it was time to leave. They "read" the audience and have such a variety of sounds - two vocalists - that it didn't matter whether it was fast or slow songs, people loved being on the dance floor to their music! It's no wonder they receive the Couples Choice award and Best of Weddings year after year. They are that good! -- The reception was at The Missouri History Museum" - May 31, 2016

"We received this note from our most recent client today. We performed for her daughter's wedding on Sunday and we also performed for her other daughter's wedding in 2007 so it was another situation where the family invited us back again. Always a great compliment! She didn't get to say goodbye at the end of the night on Sunday so she sent a very nice note within 24 hours of the wedding. That just goes to show that we get to perform for some very nice people. A huge thank you to Debbie for inviting the band back for her second daughter's wedding! ******** Tim, As you know, I am your biggest fan and YOU are the reason why! Your attention to detail - your organization and responsiveness are all things I do appreciate as they make life planning a wedding so much more enjoyable. The variety of songs played and having your finger on the pulse with regard to what the audience is looking forward to hearing and dancing to are what make Spectrum the number 1 choice in entertainment. I was impressed with how full the dance floor remained throughout the evening and up until that last song was played. I apologize for not saying goodbye and my thank yous at the end of the evening as we were trying to gather things up, making sure we didn't leave anything behind. You made the "work" of planning a wedding a joy! I can't tell you how many times I have told everyone that Tim is so organized that the band was the first vendor I signed up and never had to think again about because you were always so wonderful and responsive. We loved having you play at Erin & Marc's wedding and there was no need to look any further knowing that you and many of the same musicians still comprised the Spectrum band and the consistency in how you run your business make it a real pleasure to use Spectrum.

"Thanks for the excellent review Catherine! --- I can't say enough about Spectrum Band. For me personally, one of the biggest factors in selecting our wedding vendors was their level of responsiveness. Tim, the band's point of contact for booking, was always prompt, thorough and professional in his responses to our inquiries. From our first conversation, I knew that I could trust him and the rest of Spectrum Band with spearheading a spectacular wedding reception. I especially appreciated that they had absolutely no qualms with allowing us to personalize our special day. I have a close friend that is a professional singer, and I had always imagined that she would sing on our wedding day. Not only was the band completely open to her making a guest appearance for our first dance song, but they also provided the sheet music for her and learned the song which was not previously included on their song list. While I am normally a very detail-oriented person and a total planner, I didn't bother to submit a song request list to the band prior to the event. We felt completely comfortable allowing the band to use their best judgment to tailor the music to our guests' taste throughout the evening. It was an amazing weight off our shoulders throughout the planning process and the day of the wedding to know that we had such an outstanding vendor that we could trust fully for our entertainment needs. We had many guests on the dance floor until the very end of the night and couldn't have been more happy with how wonderful the band was. If you are looking for a live band that is professional, reliable, incredibly talented and wildly fun, I highly recommend Spectrum Band for your next event! To the band, THANK YOU for creating such a memorable evening for us, our families and our guests! -- The reception was at The Coronado" - May 23, 2016

"Tim and Spectrum Band are fantastic! My now husband and I were worried about finding the right fit with a band for our wedding and we are so glad we chose Spectrum. From the first contact, we received a response almost immediately. Communication was great throughout the whole wedding planning process. The day of our wedding everything went smoothly. Band was on time and wonderful to work with, very organized and courteous. When they started playing, everything was polished and sounded GREAT! We received so many great compliments from our guests about the band and how great they were. They definitely played to the crowd. Could not be happier with our choice.

The combination of talent and organization makes any bride and groom feel comfortable. They also have their own lighting package which was very affordable and convenient.

"I can't say enough positive things about Spectrum. Any time I emailed Tim, I heard back within 30 minutes (including the weekend!) The dance floor was packed all night, and they finished the reception with a song they learned just for us (and played it flawlessly). My mother-in-law said the next day "The band looked like they were having as much fun as we were!". I have to agree---in the background of our reception photos they are all smiling in every photo! I would recommend this band to absolutely anyone. We had a GREAT time.

"I could not be happier with our decision to have the Spectrum band at our wedding! From the very beginning Tim was prompt and thorough in his communication with us. I was confident he would not miss anything and I could tell how passionate he was about his work. All of that made us decide to hire them for our wedding! Throughout the wedding planning process, I never had to worry about the band because I knew Tim was already on it before I even had to ask. The band learned a new song for our first dance and that was so special and unique! They were also so flexible in playing other music not on their routine song list (e.g., our college fight songs and Irish Jig). I received so many compliments about the band during and after the wedding! I would definitely recommend Spectrum and if I had to pick a band again I wouldn't change a thing. -- The reception was at the Missouri Athletic Club in downtown St. Louis" - February 29, 2016

"Booking Spectrum Band for our wedding was one of the easiest decisions (besides saying "I do") we could've made. We initially reached out to them to check pricing and availability, and Tim Callihan couldn't have been more helpful. He was extremely kind, quick to respond, andimmediately put us at ease about the whole process. Seriously, they pretty much take care of everything! That said, our reception was in a venue which they were familiar with, and had played at several times, so there was no confusion or issue there. We simply gave them the date, time, and location, and they took care of everything else. The pre-wedding questionnaire gave them a good foundation from which to build their performance. In it, we were able to specify songs/artists, the names of those in our wedding party and important guests, and set the flow of our reception. As our wedding date approached, Tim remained in close contact to nail down the details, and was very accommodating to our requests...even the last-minute changes. They were extremely professional about everything. My husband and I could not be happier with Spectrum Band's performance. There is so much talent and personality in this band...they are amazing! They did everything we asked for, and more. In addition to playing music, they also provided our emcee, who really paid close attention to details, and set a lively and fun tone for the evening. We decided to hire the quartet for the cocktail hour, and the full nine-piece band for the rest of the reception. The feedback we've received from our guests has all been positive. We didn't really set too many restrictions, in terms of songs not to play, and let the band maintain their creative freedom. Our guests ranged from very young to quite old, and they performed (or played from an iPod playlist during breaks) a variety of music, which appealed to people of all ages. At the end of the night, we were extremely happy with Spectrum Band's performance, impressed with their professionalism, and couldn't thank them enough!

"Tim and Spectrum Band, thank you for providing amazing entertainment during Amanda and David's wedding reception. You were the first vendor we contracted with and were thrilled with your performance. The jazz trio was the perfect entertainment during the cocktail and dinner hours. The guests continually commented about how enjoyable it was to listen to the piano, sax, and bass while mingling and the trio provided perfect background music for our delicious dinner at the Saint Louis Club. Ray, the emcee, was friendly, professional, and truly comfortable in his role. Spectrum Band is fantastic! The vocalists and musicians are spectacular - full of energy and amazing talent. The dance floor was never empty and all of the guests had smiles on their faces. No one left the ballroom! We are still receiving compliments on your band.

"Ariana said... 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 fiance 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. -- The reception was at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis, MO" - November 6, 2015

"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!

"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 Callihan 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!" - October 14, 2015

"Tim, The band was excellent! I personally wish we had extended the reception as I could have danced all night and everyone seemed to be enjoying the music and dancing. You just never know how long dinner, speeches and all the othe formalities will take. Mike's dad said that one his friends commented -- we'll stay until the loud music for the young people starts -- well that didn't happen and he stayed and danced all night. You had a good mix of music and I can always tell that the kids are enjoying it too when they are out there dancing and SINGING along. I particularly enjoyed seeing Kristen and Kyle dance to "My Girl" . . . excellent job on the band's part with this song. Everything was perfect as usual from The Spectrum band. So many people complimented the music and asked where we had heard them. The first time I heard you guys was at The Coronado (probably five years ago) for a wedding reception. I made note of the band's name at the time because I knew I would be recommending it to Kristen should she marry. I really wish you guys played at more open venues like Faust Park. Hopefully they will have you back again next year and we can hear you again. You all were very accommodating with everything we requested. I was confident with the numerous emails going back and forth that you would have things under control and like you said that would be one less thing we would need to worry about . . . you were so correct. I didn't see you all leave but I hope you had a good evening and found time to eat. I am sure Kristen will be emailing you once she returns from their honeymoon.

"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! Dr. & Mrs. Ray Davis -- The reception was at the Chase Park Plaza " - July 11, 2015

Not only do you play well, but your band members were easy to work with and easy for me to communicate with - which is hardly ever the case!

"EXCELLENT CHOICE!!! 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.

"Hi Tim! I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and the band once again for an outstanding job last night. You all are always so accommodating and easy to work with. It makes my job so much easier when the band is made up of professionals that understand the wedding environment. Of course, it goes without saying that music was top notch. The packed out dance floor at 11:00 pm says that better than I ever could! I hope we get to work together again soon. You all are fantastic. Once wedding season calms down a bit, I would love to have coffee with you sometime and learn more about the band and the business. Would love to be able to send more clients your way! -- Wedding reception venue: Missouri Athletic Club in downtown St. Louis" - June 6, 2015

"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. -- The reception was at the Moolah Shrine in Maryland Heights, MO." - May 2, 2015

"We just attended the beautiful wedding of my husband's son and his awesome bride. All I can say about this band is BRILLIANT! They played for 4 hours with no break and kept the dance floor crowded the entire night. And they were so good with every type of music from dinner music to country rock. They played any requests and did not play so loud that one could not talk to the next person. And you know they are good when everyone dances right up until the last dance. I highly recommend them for your functions! -- The reception was at the Moolah Shrine in Maryland Heights, MO." - May 2, 2015

"WONDERFUL BAND: I am a mother of four daughters and this was the final wedding for us. Spectrum was a great choice for our band. They played exactly what we wanted, took requests from the guests and kept the dance floor full until the last song. The sound technician was great. We were able to have a conversation while we danced and everyone was able to stay in the ballroom to enjoy the celebration. I would enthusiastically recommend Spectrum. -- The reception was at Bellerive Country Club in Ladue, MO." - April 18, 2015

"PERFECT! Spectrum played at my wedding recently and they were a huge hit! We had a jazz quartet play through dinner, they were just the right level to provide background atmosphere while allowing guests to chat. The music selection was spot on as well. The full band came on as dinner ended and kept the dance floor packed all night long. The band handled all of the announcements and first dances/cake cutting in a very classy way that was comfortable as a participant. Tim Callihan,the manager, was always quick to respond to calls and emails and gave clear expectations. The band learned our song for our first dance and hit it out of the park! I'd hire them again and again! -- The reception was at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis, MO." - March 21, 2015

"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. -- The reception was at the Shrewsbury City Center." - February 9, 2015

Since we've gotten back in the country, and cell phones turned back on, we've gotten numerous texts and comments regarding the band we had at our wedding. All were major compliments, so rest assured that party wouldn't have been nearly what it was without Spectrum. It was soo much fun, and we can't thank you guys enough for it! Seriously, everybody danced, sang, and partied their faces off, and we couldn't have asked for more! If you need us to write reviews for anything, let me know and I'd be happy to.

"What a BAND, what a NIGHT! I've been to plenty of wedding receptions where live bands provided the entertainment, and have never experienced one better than the band I had at my own; the Spectrum Band. They MADE THE NIGHT! Still getting texts about how great the reception was because of the music! From the very first correspondence, all the way through to now, after the fact, Tim C. answered calls/emails VERY promptly, gave explanations and suggestions, and really helped build an awesome party in whole. We had the full 9-piece + the sound engineer, who is such an added value to have on-hand. That night, Tim and Ray V. ran the show, coming to us with ideas and suggestions behind the scenes, and tailoring everything for us that night. Having a 9-piece band, a sound engineer, and two singers (male & female) was what I'd call the "total package". My suggestion for wedding entertainment: these guys! and if you do go with Spectrum, let them do their thing. We gave them a general idea/genre we were looking for, and had them learn one song for us. Aside from that, they took that little guidance and ran with it, creating a set list that was perfect for a great party. Fairly priced. Great value.

"We had a great overall experience with Spectrum starting from our first contact to inquire about dates and availability. Very professional and timely responses. We ended up booking them off the internet for our son's wedding and had a great wedding event with them. The crowd was on the dance floor filling it up for nearly every song they played. The choice of music was varied and appealed to all age groups.

"Packed Dance Floor, Easiest Vendor to Work With -- I think the best and most important thing to note when reviewing Spectrum was that they had the dance floor packed until the very last song. In fact, it was still packed AFTER the music ended at the completion of our reception! That is the BEST thing for a bride and groom to see-- everyone else enjoying the evening as much as you are. We had their pianist play during dinner and the full band throughout the rest of the reception and they did such an amazing job we had family friends decide on the spot to book them for their daughter's upcoming wedding. Several people commented on their range of music.. from Louis Armstrong to Katy Perry they killed it all and had selections for everyone. How do I even begin to review Tim, the band manager? Through our extremely long engagement (2 years) I inquired about and corresponded with a lot of vendors. By a mile, Tim was the easiest to work with, quickest to respond, and, despite having dozens of weddings on their docket, always seemed to remember all the details of our wedding throughout every conversation we had. There was never a single doubt in my mind that Spectrum would be at our venue, set up in time and everything would go perfectly. As I write this I realize Tim is the only vendor I never called to confirm all was in order the week of the wedding. I was so confident they'd be there and ready to roll. Thank you, Spectrum, for being a highlight of our evening and making our wedding even more special and memorable! - Review of the band that was posted on the weddingchannel.com web site (http://local.weddingchannel.com/Wedding-Vendors/Spectrum-Band-Wedding-Reviews?ProfileId=339736)" - October 10, 2014

""My husband and I could not be happier with our decision to hire Spectrum as our wedding band. From the very beginning, Spectrum was attentive and accommodating to each of our requests, no matter how minor. They responded promptly and clearly to every call and e-mail. Out of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, Spectrum was definitely the most organized and easiest to work with. At our reception, each song sounded amazing and the dance floor was constantly packed with people. Numerous guests commented on how great the band was. They really engaged the wedding guests in a way that a DJ cannot. I admit I initially was skeptical about hiring a band instead of a DJ at first (mostly due to cost), but it was well worth the price, and Spectrum has so many pricing options and packages that you can easily customize their services to your needs and budget.

"BEST BAND EVER!! Our daughter's wedding was last Saturday, and I couldn't have been more pleased about our band choice. A year ago, when we started searching for a good band, my daughter sent me 3 links of highly recommended bands by her friends. I researched them all but immediately knew upon hearing the music on Spectrum's website, that this was the band for us. Loved the horns and loved the choice of music they play, not to mention the singing which was phenomenal. Saturday night, I can't tell you how many people asked who the band was and commented that they were the best band that they had ever heard! The music definitely made the night into a fantastic party! The dance floor was always full. Even my 93 year old father (who doesn't dance) got out on the dance floor. I also want to note that Tim Callahan was so attentive to our needs and quickly responded to any email requests prior to the wedding. By far, Tim was my favorite vendor used for the wedding, always assuring me that he had his job covered, and I didn't need to worry about his duties being fulfilled. He came through just like he promised. The band was so good, that I almost wish I had another daughter so that I could hire them again for another wedding. :)... - Review of the band that was posted on the weddingchannel.com web site (http://local.weddingchannel.com/Wedding-Vendors/Spectrum-Band-Wedding-Reviews?ProfileId=339736)" - July 12, 2014

"Spectrum was the entertainment at our daughter's wedding this past weekend. Spectrum is spectacular! What more can we say. Why Spectrum? Just before our daughter and son-in-law announced their engagement, we were at a private party where Spectrum performed. We said to each other wow they're good. We looked at each other and silently knew this was the band. It was that simple; that obvious; that quick. Tim, the band manager and drummer, was extremely easy to work with as we coordinated the reception and entertainment. We used members of Spectrum in three settings. Their pianist set the mood during our cocktail hour; a quartet from the band provided background music during dinner; and finally the full band cranked the party up all the way. We had a handful of music professionals as guests and they all commented on the quality and professionalism of the band. One of them said their arrangements of many well-known songs coupled with their performance made you feel like it was originally theirs. What a compliment. The dance floor was packed en masse with our guests as the evening concluded. We knew our daughter and son-in-law's wedding day would be memorable. Thank you, Spectrum.

"SIMPLY PHENOMENAL (INCLUDING PRE AND POST WEDDING)- In short: I found I had written a lot, so wanted to include the short summary up here: The music was incredible, the band read the mood and kept our dance floor packed from start to finish. Further, Tim (the manager) was incredibly helpful and responsive all the way through, providing a recording of our first dance and making us completely comfortable that everything would happen in terms of logistics. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Spectrum for your wedding, more details below. ===== Full review: I reached out to Tim (Spectrum's manager), along with several other companies and groups, over a year before our wedding date. Spectrum had popped in many sites as the best wedding band in St. Louis, and I was thrilled when Tim shared their pricing with me for the night - they were in line with all the others (but the others did not have the same quality of reviews). We quickly booked. Over the next year as we moved closer and closer to the date, Tim regularly corresponded with me whenever input was needed, making sure we knew what the band needed (e.g., they like to know the first dance song with a few months to spare - although he was willing to be flexible if we had needed it) and that things would be in great shape for the big day. He readily worked with our day-of coordinator (definitely get one of these if you can, it had an incredible impact), and the last email he sent a few days before our wedding included the note "Consider us the thing you don't need to worry about at all - everything is set". Given the frequent communication, I knew I could trust him. On the day of, Spectrum set up (including some cocktail hour and dinner music). I was happy to meet Tim beforehand just to say hello, and when the band got going they were incredible. Our first dance was played perfectly (they had sent us a recording of the song a few months before so that we could practice), and they NAILED every song. Some of my favorites were the Michael Jackson medley (four of his songs in one) and of course old wedding classics 'Shout' and the Cuban Shuffle. Some of the crowd requested Katy Perry after hearing her once and the band readily obliged (they did an excellent job of reading the mood and playing great songs to fit). Altogether, the dance floor was packed and rocking all night even despite other attractions (photo booth, giant jenga, walking around the history museum where we were). Several guests, both my age and older, came up to me to say how much they loved the band. My new father-in-law even commented later that he had tipped them extra because he thought they were so good. At the end of the night, as they packed up, Tim and a few other band members thanked us for the great crowd and handled everything related to packing up. He and Spectrum really blew us away and made our day even more special than it already was. 10/10 would recommend! - The venue was Missouri History Museum. - Review of the band that was posted on the weddingchannel.com web site (http://local.weddingchannel.com/Wedding-Vendors/Spectrum-Band-Wedding-Reviews?ProfileId=339736)" - May 3, 2014

"Spectrum played at my daughter's reception on April 5, 2014. Being the father of the bride I don't have much to say about picking the band..... all I get to do is listen at the reception and pay for it. :) Honestly I had no idea what to expect. Boy was I happy at her pick. Spectrum played a fantastic mix of music that both the older crowd and younger crown could both enjoy. I've listened to a few bands in my day and these guys are really talented. I especially liked the horns and the way they played together as a group. The best thing is that when they started playing during the dinner they weren't so loud that you couldn't carry on a conversation at the table. I can' tell you how many wedding bands dominate and overpower when they start playing. Great selection of music during the dinner time too! They are worth every penny. Listen to them and hire them for your next event. -- The venue was Algonquin Country Club -- Review of the band that was posted on the weddingwire.com web site (http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/spectrum-band-chesterfield/1e7ade1e347cdd43.html)" - April 5, 2014

Thanks for the many slower songs which allowed all ages to enjoy the music. Dancing was great but must admit I was sore Sunday- need to dance a lot more!

"Spectrum did an amazing job at our wedding! The quality of services they provided was like nothing I have ever seen. Not only was Tim so kind and easy to get a hold of, he was more than willing to answer any little question that I had prior to my day in such a timely manner. They were by far the best wedding band we could have ever had. The musicians got everyone out on the dance floor and people stayed out there the whole evening. They did an outstanding job of playing all different genres of music.

"Tim, We were pleased to have the band at our event. You are right about the guests being tired. They had a late night Friday, then in meetings all day, then sat through the awards banquet. After a few cocktails, we did have some dancers and other guests seemed to enjoy the music while visiting. The Spectrum Band was excellent. The background music played during dinner was perfect.

"Here's a nice note from someone that wanted to book Spectrum but we weren't available for her. I helped her find another band and answered all of her questions about bands so this was nice to receive. --- Hi Tim, You should publish "The In's and Out's of Hiring a Live Band," or something to that effect. At the very least, you should have a sort of "Ann Landers" of how to work with a live band and use all those wedding sites as your forum! You would have a lot of followers. Again, Tim, many, many thanks for all your help, time and insight. It has been invaluable, and should you ever need a non-client endorsement, I will give you a resounding one. Perhaps we'll have a chance to work together for real some other time. Best, Jody " - January 15, 2014

"I cannot say enough good things about the spectrum band. Leading up to the wedding, I felt completely at ease because of the wonderful correspondence with band manager and drummer, Tim. He was truly more than just part of the band. He took the time to lay out details and helped give me information that I never even considered when it comes to wedding planning. In some ways, I felt like because I had such a great rapport with Tim, I trusted his input for all my vendors. The professionalism of ALL band members (during the wedding reception and also the pianist - Mike, who performed at our ceremony) was first class. The emcee (Ray) helped our crazy wedding not go astray. He kept our wedding going in an organized manner yet remained very entertaining and professional. Their actual performance fit our styles and our wedding perfectly, which is something they committed to and strived for when planning our reception set list. We booked them from 6-11pm and they sounded wonderful from beginning to end. Spectrum can play anything very well. Wedding bands can be more expensive, but the quality and entertainment value are so worth the extra expense. Believe me - the compliments we have received have been overwhelming. I honestly could go on and on and on about how wonderful they were but anyone who is reading this, please know that you will NOT be disappointed in their quality, performance and professionalism.

First, let me give a big THANK YOU to Tim, the Manager of Spectrum. After many emails and conversations, the band was ready for the party! All the details were perfect! Our youngest daughter was the last of the three daughters to be married. This was our first live band and all I can say "it is so worth the extra money!" The dance floor was full all night and we just wished we could have danced a few more hours. Everything was perfect and BRAVO to all of the band members and the singers.

"The Best Wedding Band! Working with Tim and the Spectrum Band proved to be one of the best decisions I made while planning my wedding. Spectrum was my favorite vendor - by far - as they were accessible and proactive throughout the entire process. Spectrum's unique Sound Engineer made sure the audio sounded great from all areas. Our reception was at the Moonrise Hotel's Moon Room, which can be tricky for audio, but Spectrum had no problem making the band sound great!

We had so many compliments from friends and family wanting to know how they could book Spectrum for their next event. We had a dance floor full the whole night! We had family and friends who never dance at weddings, dance like fools all night! When we asked those friends what changed their mind to dancing, they attributed it all to the great songs from the band. I can't emphasize enough how glad we are we chose Spectrum! They must be the BEST band in St. Louis and I'm saying that after hearing the Ralph Butler and Bob Kuban bands at other weddings and events!

"Spectrum Band just played my wedding Friday August 2nd, 2013, but my happiness with the band as a whole goes back to when I started emailing them several months ago. Tim was prompt in responding to emails which made planning easier and less stressful. It was great knowing that I would get a response the day I emailed him. When the band showed up that night, I was impressed with not only the way they were dressed (which was formal and professional) but also with the amount of communication during our reception. The band really helped us stick to the timeline as closely as possible. When they started playing, I WAS AGAIN IMPRESSED. They are a talented, fun group of musicians and my friends and family piled on the dance floor and didn't leave until the band stopped playing.

"Since the moment we booked Spectrum as our wedding band, we have experienced nothing but professional, informative and friendly service from Tim. He gave advice not only on music and the reception in general, he provided information regarding all aspects important to weddings. We have not a single complaint about any aspect of this process. Numerous guests complimented the band and asked where we found them because they had such an amazing time. There was never a full moment. The band made sure the party kept moving and no one ever left the dance floor! The music choices were perfect. The vocalists were amazing. The music clips on the website do not nearly do justice to them. Spectrum assisted in helping us run the music for our ceremony. We originally intended on musicians playing our music at the ceremony however we changed our minds last minute and went with an iPod. Tim quickly responded to my emails and provided us with a very capable, reliable and friendly helper who ensured the ceremony music played exactly when it should. We priced numerous prominent bands in the St. Louis and attended several weddings in which the other bands performed. Our performance from spectrum far exceeded the others. We cannot stress enough how much we and our guests enjoyed their performance. Thank you so much Spectrum!

"We were set on having a band at our wedding reception and Spectrum made our night unforgettable! We really enjoyed working with Tim beforehand and the process was flawless - we always felt like we were right on track and never once worried about the details. We had so many compliments from our guests about how great the music was and how it created such a fun and enjoyable atmosphere! Spectrum also has an amazing variety of song choices which appealed to everyone from the teenagers to our grandparents. I would absolutely recommend Spectrum to anyone who wants a packed dance floor until the end of the night. We appreciate everything they did to make our event so perfect! - Thanks again!

"Spectrum played at my daughter's wedding and they are fabulous! The music is great and all had a great time. I can't say how many compliments we had or how much our guests enjoyed the band......word for the night is "they are really good !". Yeah, they are. If you use them you will not be disappointed. In addition to their talent, Tim is over the top in keeping in touch with exceptional correspondence. They are the only band I would have for such a special event. My advice is to book them for they are in high demand.

"Tim, you are unbelievable ! Again, you are soooo good with keeping in touch. It was a wonderful evening and I can't say enough how much we, including the guests, enjoyed the music. As they say, your event is only as good as your band, and I feel in this entertainment area, go with the best or go home. You guys are the best! Yeah our crowd likes to drink and dance........and you guys made it perfect. Sarah and John are in Maui now but they were as thrilled with the evening as Kevin and I. So many people commented about your band..."they are so good" and you all are so talented. Thank you again for making it all so special, and keeping us on track, and all your attention to details.

"We HIGHLY recommend hiring Spectrum for your wedding! They played at our wedding on June first and they were a HUGE hit. Our dance floor was packed all night! They play every typical wedding song from our parents era and new songs too. I danced with my 80 year old uncle to lady gaga at our wedding! During and after our reception we have had numerous compliments on how great our music was. I had two songs I wanted our wedding party to enter to and 1 of them I wanted to start 2 minutes in. Tim the manager/Drummer had the songs edit so it would all flow nicely together. This was 2 days prior to the event! Tim is GREAT about emailing you back. Any questions or comments I had he would typically respond within hours to my emails. That is hard to find from most vendors! Spectrum is WELL worth the money. You get what you pay for - great music, correspondence, and a vendor that truly cares about your reception. You will not regret hiring them!! -- Review of the band that was posted on the weddingwire.com web site (http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/spectrum-band-chesterfield/1e7ade1e347cdd43.html)" - June 1, 2013

We are so happy that you were able to play at our wedding. We hope to come see you in Faust Park at the end of June! Thanks, Sarah ******* Tim: Each of you did an awesome job that night and we really appreciate the hard work that was put in. The male vocalist's lyric change on "Fly Me to the Moon" was flawless! We have received many, many compliments on our band choice. It's been a pleasure working with you. Express all our thanks to the band, please!

"AMAZING EXPERIENCE WITH THESE GUYS! The Spectrum Band was a huge hit at our wedding! Tim was so easy to work with and did his best to accommodate all of our requests. Our guests loved the band so much we actually asked them to play a little over the allotted time. This kept the band playing for 3 hours straight, but you would never have known it with the way they kept their energy up! These guys are great!

"HARD TO IMAGINE A BETTER LIVE WEDDING BAND: Spectrum was very responsive and professional from the initial correspondence regarding the wedding through the end of our wedding night. The music they played at the reception was exactly what we had hoped to get after filling out their wedding questionnaire. The band was great at reading the crowd and adjusting to get people on the floor. They nailed everything from Motown classics, to Michael Jackson and Etta James, from wedding classics to modern hits. The compliments we received reflected greatly on the band as well as our reception.

"High Energy, Great Service, Excellent Sound!: My mother picked this band out without even telling us, and we (the bride & groom) actually wanted a different band... Well its funny the way things work out, because they were FABULOUS! I didn't plan very far ahead - my fault, but they provided us with great customer service to make sure we had the best reception they could give us. The music was great quality, host skills were right on, and all the musicians were great. They did an excellent job of keeping people on the dance floor...and I do love to dance! As a completely unknown treat, they taped all of the speeches that evening and sent them to us via email within 24 hours of the wedding! It was so special to actually hear the speeches again and be able to retain them other than the blurry wedding day! It was surprise and definite value-added service!

Everyone had a blast dancing to the great music offered!! I was very impressed with how well the band catered to my needs! I left the play list up to the band and it was absolutely wonderful!!! Several people have asked about Spectrum Band wanting to use them for their reception! I would say at least 50 of my guests talked about the band for quite a while after the wedding. I even had someone ask me about them the other day and I've been married for 2 years! Very memorable! One of the best qualities was that they had a sound guy going around the room making sure the noise level was right and the sound was good. I appreciated this a lot since Spectrum had never played at this reception hall before. I never noticed the band being too loud like I have heard from other bands. I 100% will recommend Spectrum Band to anyone!!

"We chose Spectrum to perform at our wedding reception. We chose to have their pianist and saxophone player perform during our cocktail and dinner hours, and then the full band performed for after-dinner dancing. Spectrum was fantastic! The dance floor was packed the entire night. As the last song finished, the dance floor was still packed. They brought an incredible energy to our reception that kept our guests having a great time all night. We received so many compliments from our guests that they loved the band. With the wide range of instruments their music has great depth. They know a wide range of music, plus, they learned a song just for our reception. Beyond the music, they were extremely professional and responsive. Any questions I had were responded to very quickly, thoroughly and very professionally. I felt very comfortable that everything was going to go smoothly with Spectrum, and it did. I would definitely recommend Spectrum to anyone having a wedding reception! -- Review of the band that was posted on the weddingwire.com web site (http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/spectrum-band-chesterfield/1e7ade1e347cdd43.html)" - June 1, 2012

"This band made my wedding reception a blast. They were absolutely incredible. Tim (the manager) was easy to communicate with and made the process very easy. He took care of everything and the band was something I did not have to stress over. They were very professional and kept my guests on the dance floor. I would recommend this band to anyone.

"Hi Tim - Thank you! It was a pleasure working with you over the past several months, and I am beyond thrilled that we chose Spectrum for our wedding. You all were fabulous! We have received so many compliments from our guests on your performance. Beyond the fantastic music and sound, you were also very organized and professional which I greatly appreciated. There was so much energy in the room that night. I would love to write a review on how much we enjoyed Spectrum - is there a website that's best for us to use to write one?

"Tim: It was a pleasure to host you and the Spectrum band at the Bevo Mill last weekend. I really think you did an excellent job and wanted to follow up and gather a little bit more information about Spectrum so when I have groups inquiring about live bands, I can provide some more information. Please give me some of the "basic" information regarding how it works to book your group, how far ahead are you typically booked, and a price range for weddings. I hope to have you back again here soon. Thanks. Prost! Elizabeth Smith -- Wedding reception at Bevo Mill" - May 4, 2012

"If I had to sum this experience up in one word it would have to be "AMAZING". I am a recent Bride who got married in April and I will say that planning a wedding out of town can sometimes be a challenge, but Tim made this process so easy. He has a great response time and is very flexible with the type of music that you are looking for. (Tons of great songs to choose from!) The guests at the wedding were raving about how great Spectrum Band was in getting everyone on the dance floor. My husband's Dad (who does not dance) was out there breaking it down!. Overall, Tim and his band truly made our wedding experience the best that I could have asked for. Thank you Tim for the wonderful memories!

"Our daughter was married on 3.17.2012 and the reception was held at The Grand Hall at Union Station, Marriott. We had the Spectrum Band handle all the music for the cocktail hour, dinner hour, and reception. People are still talking about the great music, their interaction with the guests, and a full dance floor all evening. Tim was fantastic to work with prior to our event and was in constant contact to make sure we had all the desired music covered, a surprise during her dad's speech was set up with a special song, and everything went perfectly throughout the entire event. Spectrum was professional, music was fantastic, everybody hit the dance floor and the true test was when our daughter and son in law thanked us near the end of the evening and their only wish is that the band could play longer. Everybody had a great time and Spectrum was an instrumental part of the wonderful reception.

You all get even better with time like a fine wine!! Everyone who came up to me told me how much they appreciated the range of your music you performed so fabulously.

"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. I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, St. Louis Chapter for their generosity in allowing me to be there last night to photograph the band. This organization serves such a valuable need and I would love to work with them in the future. -- Event: Fundraising event for the Asthma & Allergy Foundation held at The Coronado" - March 10, 2012

"Tim, Thank you so much for the amazing performance as well as being such a great company to work with! We truly appreciate it and hope you had a great time as well! We've heard nothing but good feedback about your music and are so glad that you were our band for the evening. We cannot wait to see the pictures as well but it is too bad they won't have your music playing in the background :) I would love to write a recommendation for you, especially for other non-profits and I will get back in touch with the event planner from CASA who was interested in Spectrum to tell her what a great experience we had.

"Thank you for all that you did! And especially your patience!! Those events are a nightmare with timing and the fashion show was way too long. We recovered some time in the auction but we would have liked to have been dancing sooner. Your band was gracious and when it was time to play you nailed it. We will be talking to you about next year for sure. Everyone had a great time and the band was the perfect way to end the evening. Thanks again!

"Hi Tim: I think the evening went well and everyone had a good time. Our group is a difficult group to get up on the dance floor. I myself feel more comfortable when the dance floor is full, so if there's only 4 people out there, I won't get out there. Your band did a fantastic job again this year. We appreciate all of your efforts to make sure everyone had a great time. We will definitely keep you in mind for next year's party.

"Tim, I would like to thank you and the whole band for a wonderful performance at Shannon's wedding. It definitely says something about the band when the dance floor is crowded the whole time the band is performing. We had many compliments about the band! The Spectrum band is definitely advertising for why people should hire live bands instead of DJ's - there is just no comparison.

"Hi, Tim. I've been meaning to write to let you know how much your music added to my parent's party. Better late than never, right? Spectrum was a hit! Almost 6 weeks later, and I'm still getting compliments on choosing the band. I think the best compliment was from my 82 year old aunt who whispered to me at the party, "I've been to a lot of 50th Wedding Anniversary celebrations, and this one is THE best----including mine!" She polka'd and truly enjoyed your music. I think your ability to play such a wide range of music and to keep the volume at a level to still allow conversation were large factors in keeping the crowd at the party until the facility shooed us out. Also, a personal thank-you for 1) working with my niece, allowing her to sing a song with the band and 2) allowing my small nephew to play your drums at the end of the night, and 3) learning "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" to play as the last song. I know that these are moments that everyone in my family will never forget. Best of luck to you and the rest of the Spectrum Band in your future endeavors. I only wish I had another party soon to plan so that I could work with you again.

"Tim, I can't even begin to count the numerous compliments that I got from our guests on the band. You guys were awesome! There were so many people dancing that I didn't know had it in them. I had to kind of do a double-take! My grandmother, who is in her 80's and recently had her hip replaced, was out there all night shaking it the best she could! Haha. Personally, I can't ever remember dancing so joyfully and freely. What a great way to cap off just a perfect day! You've been an absolute pleasure to work with, professional in every way. I hope that somehow myself or someone I know will be looking to book a band in the future, because I'll know right where to go. Otherwise, we'll be sure to try to catch you when you play at Faust Park, right by our house.

"This is a note from a client to our pianist (Mike Carosello) that performed for their ceremony as well as their reception ***Mike, I hope you can imagine your version of Led Zeppelin's Thank You in the background as you read this ;) That was so cool that you surprised me with that extra treat. I just wanted to say thanks again for doing such an awesome job at our wedding ceremony! You went above and beyond what I was expecting. I know everything didn't go exactly as we had planned. Guests arriving late made things a bit confusing and I should have given the wedding party better instructions on their musical cues. Then, the Reverend sort of just skipped the second music interlude. After all that, it turned out even better than I was hoping. Somehow you found a way to make it work. It was great how you cut in with Linus and Lucy for the kids. I wish I would've thought of that! The bride's processional was so beautiful and I love how you adapted that song. It truly was "just a perfect day." Thanks for everything, Nathan -- Wedding ceremony venue: Mount Pleasant Winery in Augusta, MO" - June 24, 2011

"This is a note from a client one week before his wedding day. Our pianist (Mike Carosello) is performing for their ceremony as well as their reception *** Hi Tim: One week away!!! I just wanted to let you know that Mike has been great to work with. He called yesterday and played me some of the songs I had selected for the ceremony over the phone. I had him adapt a song for the bride's processional (Strawberry Swing by Coldplay) and it sounded awesome! I decided not to ask him to come to rehearsal, but I'm going to have someone time each of the segments of the ceremony with a stopwatch so we can provide him with some time estimates. I know he's been off working with our singers too, providing them recordings to practice with. Anyways, just wanted to share some of my excitement!

I apologize for not being available at the end of the night to greet all the band members and offer my sincere thanks. We had an emergency that I needed to attend to with the bride. No big deal, but one of her overnight bags got misplaced and I had to locate it and get it to their hotel at the end of the night. Sorry about that misfortune.

"Hi, Tim: We felt very good about how the entire evening went and Spectrum played a major role. It was fun from beginning to end ... even got my husband on the dance floor a few times (quite a shock to our three children)! I also saw people on the dance floor that I never imagined would be there. (That might have been where the good, the bad and the ugly came into play, but that's ok, I'm no Ginger Rogers either!) Live music was so important to Allison & Matt, and I know you more than met their hopes and expectations.

"Erica: My wife and I, as well as our daughter, Julie, and her now husband, Danny, were totally thrilled with Spectrum Band, and working with Tim. My daughter probably would have been satisfied with a good DJ, but I insisted on a big band, and none of us were disappointed. I hired them because cost was comparable, they were easy to work with, Tim took all of our worries away as we approached Julie's special day, and the music played was based on the choices that we gave them, and ones they then chose consisent with the mood we wanted...they were very flexible, and we are sure they adjusted on the fly as the partiers immediately warmed up to them. Young and old raved about the performance and the personality of all of the band members. We also had their small group play during the serving of drinks, etc. You are welcome to call our daughter, Julie, who is temporarily at our home with her husband before going on assignment with Campus Crusade for Christ, and she can give you her personal observations as well..XXX-XXX-XXXX. Our best wishes and prayers for your wedding, and a wonderful celebration. As an aside, Josie Littlepage at Cosmopolitan Events was also a dream to work with.

"Spectrum Band - We are now four months post-wedding and we are still hearing rave reviews about our wedding reception from our guests - more specifically about our band. Thank you for making our wedding dance so unforgettable for us and our guests. Even those in Vienna, MO not at the wedding sat outside and enjoyed your music coming from the farm. We bet you didn't know you were entertaining the entire town! Thank you again - we can't tell you how much we enjoyed your talent!

"Hi Tim: Many thanks to you and the rest of the band for a great evening on Sunday! We really enjoyed the music and the dancing...what a great sound y'all have. Our guests were having a great time and really enjoying themselves. I think I forgot to tell you we had a few dancers in the group. They are great fun to watch in action. Again, thank you.

"Dear Tim, Thank you very much! What else could we have wished for: NOTHING! A professional, kind, generous in spirit and personal touch band. You all did an outstanding job! My only regret is that I did not get to spend more time telling you all this and personally welcoming each of you to Nicholas and Kimberly's wedding. It went by in a flurry and you all were there for us, JUST LIKE YOU PROMISED! Thank you from the bottom of my happy heart! Best wishes to all of you for continued success!

"Dear Tim: Well, it started out a bit gloomy, and wet, but by the end we had a pretty nice day. Thank you for your participation in the 2010 Harvesfest by providing the terrific musical entertainment of the day. People don't really make audiences at our event but they enjoy the music from all around the park and we heard many positive comments about your performance. I particularly enjoyed it and as you could see I had no problem embarrassing my daughter by dancing. Thanks again, and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

"One of the best decisions you can make is to have Spectrum Band play at the wedding. People who attended are still talking about how great they were. They were extremely professional and the music was fantastic! We too had concerns about the space but it worked out just great. We had 120 people in attendance. The dance floor stayed packed all night but was never too crowded. Many folks also enjoyed being in the blue dining room across the hall as well where they could watch the dancing and listen to the music. -- Wedding reception venue: Whittemore House on Washington University Campus" - August 30, 2010

"Tim, Thanks for taking the extra effort to prepare the files for the speeches - lots of compliments from the guests. I know they all enjoyed your music - we certainly did. You exceeded our expectations. Everything went exceptionally well throughout the weekend - the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, the ceremony at St Joseph, the reception, and a brunch at Mal Maison. We are all pretty tired, but it is a joyful tiredness. Best regards, David Copeland -- Wedding reception venue: Renaissance Grand Crystal Ballroom in downtown St. Louis" - August 28, 2010

"The following note was received from an audience member that attended our public concert at New Town in St. Charles. What a great note to have received from a very nice person! **** >>> Tim, Just wanted to let you know that the band "Rocks my world"!!! Second time seeing you this past week at New Town. The perfection, the timing, the overall sound, the personalities, the planning and execution, the interaction with the audience, and of course, MARY!! Oh my, what a smile and oh what a voice!!! Every time I see you guys I just feel so great!! You guys really make for a special treat at any occasion. I especially enjoy the tunes by Chicago! Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

"The following note was received from a bride that booked Spectrum after coming to audition the band when we performed for a wedding reception at the Palladium - St. Louis. She was in the process of listening to different bands during her quest for entertainment for her own wedding reception. It's a great testament to how important it is to have a "professional" engineer in charge of the sound and lighting for your reception rather than having one of the musicians making approximations with the mixing board adjustments from the stage. **** >>> "Dear Tim, We loved seeing you guys perform, and we were incredibly impressed with the quality of the sound - that sound engineer really does his job, huh!? We had just come from a different band that was way too loud and difficult to hear the vocals, so it was a nice contrast. Thanks again for letting me come out! Amber"" - August 15, 2010

"Dear Tim: I told you up front that a great band with a big sound was a priority for me at our daughter's wedding, and you and your group were exactly what I dreamed of, and far more. Everything from start to finish was handled with the utmost of professionalism, working with Julie and Danny and us so patiently, and including your kind note several days before the wedding assuring us that you would be at the site timely, and not to have any worries. The gentleman who handled the announcements was great, and the music was phenomenal. We got many compliments on your band, and the music chosen. You brought an already 'dancing crowd' to their feet for much fun throughout the night. Thanks also for providing the maximum amount of music without a break, due to the number of toasts. Again, your participation helped make the evening as enjoyable as it was for everyone, and we are most grateful. I will be pleased to recommend you and your band to anyone and everyone. Sincerely grateful. Rene & JoAnn Lusser -- Wedding reception venue: The Studio at St. Albans" - August 7, 2010

A couple of the neighbors that were not at the wedding commented on how good you were. They sat out on their porches and listened all night. Thanks again for everything and I hope to get some pics of you guys playing. As soon as I get them from the photographer I will send them along.

"Tim and all: Thanks so much for the wonderful music your group provided for our daughter's wedding. We felt like we were very fortunate to have such professional musicians be a part of this family event. From the moment that you all started playing to the end of the evening's event, I received band compliment after band compliment. I can truly state that everyone enjoyed the Spectrum 'sound.' To your credit, our guest responded positively - with a full dance floor from beginning to end. I have been happily recommending Spectrum to others. It is the least I can do for the service that we received. Thanks again, Deb Hutti -- Wedding reception venue: The Hermann Hill Vineyard and Inn" - May 15, 2010

"Tim, We thoroughly enjoyed having you as our band last night. Everyone I spoke to absolutely loved you guys. They all remarked about how fun and good you were. Tell your vocalist she made both me and our other daughter, Meghan cry with her version of "Never Alone". It was absolutely beautiful and I am glad to have made an impact on your band. We are certainly recovering from the party, and are doing well today. Working with you made our job much easier and was a thorough pleasure. We will definitely keep you in mind for future needs and will recommend you to our family and friends. Take care and have a wonderful New Year.

"Thanks Tim! My entire experience working with you and Spectrum Band has been refreshingly professional. I have never (in my 35 years as a music biz pro) experienced any band leader that topped your attention to detail, client communication, preparation, and quality of service. You made my job easy by giving our client (and myself) comforting peace of mind. It was clear from start to finish that Spectrum Band would provide for all our client's needs and wishes.

"Tim and the band were amazing! Our guests screamed for an ENCORE at the end of the night. I used to book and promote bands in college and the service Tim provided exceeded all of my experience with professional agents/routers/managers (I booked Dave Matthews, Counting Crows, Bill Cosby...etc). I would highly recommend this band to any of my friends, especially those with as discerning musical tastes as my husband and I have. -- Review of the band that was posted on the weddingwire.com web site (http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/spectrum-band-chesterfield/1e7ade1e347cdd43.html)" - November 19, 2009

Review from past client on www.weddingwire.com


"It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Spectrum Band. I had chosen Spectrum based on the recommendation of our florist, Mr. Randy Sharnel of Artistry Floral. At the time, I was living in New York and needed to coordinate my daughter's wedding reception by either the telephone or the Internet. Mr. Tim Callihan, Spectrum's manager, spent numerous hours on the telephone trying to coordinate every little detail necessary to make my daughter's day perfect. To our delight, Spectrum had an outstanding web site that listed all of their songs with live recordings. What a fabulous way to hear their talented musicians! This made choosing the music entertaining and simple. Spectrum is a wonderful and talented group. My family and friends raved about the band and everything was done to perfection! Our friends and family are still raving about what a fun time they were! They were, as my daughter's new father in-law stated, "very classy!". We all look forward to having another big function just so we can have them perform for us again! Yours truly, Noreen A. Roubian (mother of the bride) -- Wedding reception venue: Crowne Plaza in Clayton, MO" - November 14, 2009

"I previously hired Spectrum Band to perform at my wedding and I would like to recommend them to anyone planning a wedding reception or special event. When making the decision of which band to hire for our wedding, the Spectrum Band outweighed the rest because of their quick responses, recommendations from their customers, and their extensive song list. We were able to stop by another wedding at which they were playing and the mother of the bride came and told us how happy she was with them. That made our decision for us. We were very pleased! They played the sax and piano for the first two hours but had the floor set up for the entire 9-piece band before anyone even arrived at the venue. The songs they played kept people of all ages on the dance floor...and it was packed until the end of the last song...with people asking for more!

"Tim: As my fiance and I made plans for our upcoming wedding, we checked out several bands but none met our strict requirements. Finally a friend of a friend recommended Spectrum. We never got a chance to check you out prior to the wedding, but after asking around, we decided that we didn't need to. This was the affordable, large band that we were looking for who had both a male and female singer and a song range that could easily fit our large, diverse group. We had an untraditional wedding, and because we had to put the entire ceremony and reception together, we had lots of questions. You were exceptional about quickly answering the hundreds of questions we had about almost everything (from group dance options to suggestions for speakers and microphones). Once the big day finally arrived, everything fell into place perfectly. Even though we had never seen the band live, we felt as if we had. All of the requests we had (specialty dances, music played, etc) were followed exactly and the band was friendly and flexible with changes we had even made last minute! Finally, throughout the night we had person after person asking us how we had found this "amazing" band. The band had wowed everyone from my conservative grandmother to my rock-loving friends. We will recommend Spectrum Band to anyone and everyone. Gina and Casey Braden -- Wedding reception venue: The Heart of St. Charles" - October 30, 2009

"Tracey and I would like to recommend Spectrum Band to anyone needing live music! Spectrum's performance at our wedding reception was superb. The nine-piece band's rich sound, diverse repertoire, and energetic style pleased our guests of all ages and kept the dance floor filled throughout the night. The band's manager, Tim Callihan, went out of his way to be responsive and attentive to our needs. His helpful, practical advice and willingness to accommodate our special requests enabled us to have a truly memorable and personalized evening of entertainment. Spectrum exceeded all our expectations and made our reception a truly magnificent event!

"I would certainly like to recommend the Spectrum Band to anyone for their wedding or event! They performed at my wedding and the music was wonderful and the professionalism shown by Tim and the band far exceeded expectations. In searching for the perfect band for our wedding day we came across testimonials of others recommending Tim and the Spectrum Band - and they were spot on. Over the months leading up to the wedding Tim was always a phone call or an email away to answer any questions and help resolve any issues that came up during the planning process - allowing us some peace of mind. As we were mulling over a set list for the wedding we wanted to have a mix of music from 20s era jazz to 80s pop and they played it all to perfection ensuring the dance floor was packed all night. During and after the wedding reception the guests, including aunts and uncles in the 70s and friends in our age group, all commented on how much fun the band was. Thanks to Spectrum!

Also I can't remember, how many people were in the band? We want to make sure and include a gratuity. Thanks for making our wedding sooo perfect. We will be recommending Spectrum to everyone! Hope you are having a great vacation on Maui. ........... (upon Elise's return)....... Just got back from Maui and the check is in the mail on its way to you. Thanks soo much again for everything. I have already had several people ask who my band was for my wedding (bc they thought you were sooo great) and I have passed along your name. One of my friends already tried getting you but you guys are already booked. Bummer! Anyway, thanks for everything. If I ever need a band in the future, I will definitely be utilizing you.

My guests and Joe and I had a great time, and you all really got the crowd dancing. It was an amazing day for us, and the music made it all that much better! It was so nice not to have to worry about that aspect of the reception. I knew you all would do a great job, and you did not disappoint. Please pass along my thanks to all of the band.

"Hi Tim: Sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you!! We actually read your email the morning after the wedding and were so very touched that you put it together so quickly. We received SEVERAL comments regarding the Band and know that we couldn't have chosen better entertainment for our wedding (or for anything else for that matter!!). Things are going really well here, as we are quickly decorating and unpacking in our new apartment. The honeymoon was fantastic, just like the wedding. I really had a wonderful time working with you over the past year and was even more pleased with the final result. I cannot express how thankful I am that you were able to learn the mother/groom son. Anthony's Mom was very touched by that gesture, as were Anthony & I. Thank you again so much! Best, Julie & Anthony -- Wedding reception venue: The Coronado, St. Louis, MO" - August 8, 2009

"Tim: Thank you again for speaking with me this past week. Something that I have already enjoyed about you is your promptness in response, as well as your checking-in emails about the status of our wedding plans. Such attention has really made me (and my fiance, mom, and maid of honor!) value the services provided by the Spectrum band. It's obviously a strong priority that we enjoy the band, which we certainly did on Thursday and via online, but it helps to know that you really take into account our wishes and vision. With all of that being said, I would like to formally reserve the Spectrum Band for August 8, 2009 for the Hofmeister-Chambers wedding. -- Note received from Julie in June of 2008 to let me know she has decided to book Spectrum for her wedding" - August 7, 2009

"Tim: The band was great, everybody had a fantastic time. No one wanted you to stop playing when the reception was over! Thanks for your help and working with me to make it a great time. I will look you up if I have another event and need some entertainment. Planning and organizing a wedding is very time consuming and requires tying up a lot of loose ends. One of the many great things was the pre-made checklist you provided to make sure that everything is taken care of. Once the list was completed, you contacted me to go over the list, gave me your expert opinion and then you took care of the rest. Talk about easy and hassle free! The performance was second to none. There was only one problem. You were so good that no one wanted to leave! We seriously had a hard time getting people out of the reception hall. You even let us do karaoke! No one saw that coming. You were also good about accepting requests from the guests as well. The band was one less thing to have to worry about. Spectrum handled our wedding with professionalism and great flexibility to accommodate our guests. You will be my first call for any future entertainment needs. Thanks again. Scott M.

We were extremely pleased with Spectrum's performance and music at Becca and Stephen's wedding in July. The band consists of excellent musicians whose performance was one of the key elements in making the wedding reception such a fun and memorable celebration for our family and friends.

They truly added life to the party and it would not have been nearly as much fun!! They were so accommodating to our requests and made it an unforgettable night! Both of my sisters used Spectrum at their weddings, so it was only natural to have Spectrum come to our reception. I recommend them to everyone I know! I can't tell you how many people came up to us during the reception saying that it was the best reception they have ever been too. Thank you to Spectrum for an unforgettable evening!

The dance floor was crowded from start to finish, which is a great compliment to you. Beth and I have already viewed some pictures of the dancing and wish we could do it all over again. I would be honored to recommend you to anyone looking for great live music. Weddings are very hectic, and the patience and cooperation Spectrum Band had with both Beth and I made everything go much smoother. Spectrum Band's experience with these types of events and their advice given to assure everyone enjoys a wonderful time is invaluable. We know we can't re-live the wedding but are trying to duplicate the fun we had. Thanks for everything. It was a hectic time for both Beth and I and your patience made everything go much smoother.

"Tim: Thank You. Your band was amazing. I couldn't count on my fingers and toes how many times I was asked the band's name, where I found them, or was given a compliment in regards to Spectrum. No doubt in our minds, the band made the evening. No complaints. At all. We did have a pretty good dancing crew...but as you said...it works with the band and the band worked with the crowd. No DJ could have gotten everyone together that way. Young and old enjoyed every song. I am not sure if the band was upset with having to stop their set to play the Cha Cha slide, but we really appreciate it. I had taught my mom a few weeks back how to dance to the song, and she really wanted to dance. I dropped the ball on telling the engineer which break to use those songs, he asked, and I forgot to give him a firm answer. BUT, when Patrick asked your lead singer...she obliged. Thank You from the bottom of our hearts. I have a sister on the verge of getting married, and you can bet my parents will be calling. Amazing. Simply amazing. I truly appreciate everything you've helped us with. Please tell your band the same. Best Wishes, and Thank You.

Please let the band know how much we enjoyed the performance. Our guests also loved the music and have given you several compliments since the event.

"When I began planning my wedding, one of the few things I knew that I wanted was a band that would play music that people of all ages would like and keep everyone on the dance floor. I found that, and MORE, in Spectrum. Not only was Spectrum the perfect band for that night, but they were wonderful to deal with throughout the entire wedding process. They learned a new song for my first dance. When my Mother-in-law was really struggling with finding that perfect song for her Mother/Son Dance, they helped her just as if they were dealing with me. They helped me plan a schedule for the evening and were very, very involved in making sure that our wedding night was perfect from start to finish. When I think about my wedding, which I still do a lot, I always think of how glad I am that we were entertained all night by such an amazing band. We enjoyed them so much, that my husband, myself, our two families and several of our guests from the wedding went to see them in June at Faust Park. I would, and have, recommended Spectrum to ANYONE who is planning a wedding. They truly helped to make our wedding magical!

"Spectrum Band made finding a wedding band so simple and easy. My husband and I were debating back and forth with my parents over getting a band or a DJ. My parents won in the end and I have to admit they were right. The band made our wedding more elegant and kept the party going. The dance floor was full the entire evening. Tim Callihan was so easy to work with and gave us piece of mind. Thank you Spectrum Band!! -- Review of the band that was posted on the weddingwire.com web site (http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/spectrum-band-chesterfield/1e7ade1e347cdd43.html)" - March 31, 2009

"Tim: I can't thank you and the band enough. The music was absolutely fantastic and your group ( as your website accurately depicts) is extremely professional, helpful and kind. Finding out that you had a hospice connection made it seem even more special. Although we did not have quite as high of a turn out as I had hoped (there was about 85 people there - I was hoping for 100-125) the event was a huge success as our crude totals are over $9,000 so far (made up of event sponsors, ticket sales, auction and misc. donations). I hope the band had a good time and a safe drive home. I will definitely be promoting the band to anyone and everyone who needs entertainment! Thank you again - I can't say it enough! Wishing you all the best in 2009, Stephanie -- Fundraising event for Hospice of Northeast Missouri in Kirksville, MO" - February 20, 2009

"Tim, You are highly talented, easy to work with, and very professional as a group. I received so many compliments on the band for many weeks and months after the event. The dance floor was packed all evening involving all the guests, young and old, as well as family members and wedding party. Colleen is our only daughter, so won't be planning other weddings, but happy to refer you to anyone I may think is looking for a band. Please feel free to have people call or e-mail me for a reference. I hope all interested brides to be are as lucky as my daughter in making SPECTRUM part of their special day. I found a cute couple, dressed appropriately in the hall listening and I invited them in so they could see you. Not sure if they took me up on my offer, but it was genuine.

"This band was totally professional. Tim (manger) was timely and alway was reachable by phone or email.

"You will not go wrong with this band!! The dance floor was full all night long. We made our own CD's to play during their breaks but they do provide theirs too. Tim (the manager) was always available by phone leading up to the wedding and returned my phone calls promptly. Don't waste your time looking any place else, this is the band for your wedding. They play all kinds of music and they are very professional. Listen to their songs on the website...awesome. -- Review of the band that was posted on the weddingwire.com web site (http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/spectrum-band-chesterfield/1e7ade1e347cdd43.html)" - December 30, 2008

"Hi Tim! I just wanted to thank you and the rest of the band for the fabulous entertainment. Since the wedding all we have heard about was how great the band was and how much everyone enjoyed themselves(some a little too much as you could see!). I'm sorry this is late in coming! By the way, my parents' friend loved your motown medley and might be contacting you about playing at his retirement party! So maybe more business to come your way!

"Tim - I just have to say that you were awesome! We got so many compliments and it was obvious to me that everyone was really enjoying your music and having a great time. The groom only had one request for the reception and that was to have a live band and I know he was very pleased that we had you provide the entertainment. We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know that is in need of great entertainment. Thank you for being such a big part of such a big day in our daughter and her new husband's life.

Even my 84 year old mother loved the piano music, and she could name most of the songs that were played. Most of my guests commented on the lovely music and how nice it made the event seem enjoyable.

"Tim, The band was wonderful. We received compliments from many of our guests on the polish and overall quality of Spectrum. I think the proof was on the dance floor, which was packed throughout the reception.

"Hi Tim: You were so sweet to send a note of thanks--WE are the ones that should be thanking you! I can't tell you how many compliments we received for our entire evening of music. Jeff's dad was one of many that loved the cocktail and dinner combo (trust me, he's a tough customer when it comes to music) and we were surprised to see a three-piece combo instead of just the piano and bass! And the whole band rocked the house and was just awesome! People were on the dance floor from the beginning to the end. So many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Of course, Rob was a big part of that, too. He helped us through the entire evening and all of the planning. I know Emily and Joe were thrilled. You and your band definitely made it a night to remember! Missy, Emily's sister, will hopefully be planning a wedding in the next few years and deciding on a wedding date will be determined by church availability, The Coronado availability, and Spectrum's availability! You were so nice to accommodate all of Emmy's requests. Thanks so much for all your help!

"Tim: Katie and I got back from Hawaii on Thursday, packed up a few things, and drove to DC over the weekend. We both went into the office yesterday and started wading through the hundreds of emails that arrived in our absence. We want to thank you and the band for such a great performance - especially your rendition of "Beyond the Sea." Everything was so much more than we could have hoped for. Many of our friends and family have told us how much fun they had with the music and dancing, and we are most grateful to you and the band for making that possible. I wish that we had had a chance to thank you all in person that night, but everything was moving so fast - as you well know. Again, thank you very much. We hope to see you again in the future.

"Spectrum Band: I apologize for taking so long to write this. I cannot thank you enough for making our reception so special. You guys were absolutely wonderful! I couldn't have asked for a better band. Not only your music, but your professionalism. Your quick responses to my e-mails gave me peace of mind. You couldn't have made our reception any more fun!

"Hi Tim, I just wanted to take a minute to extend a huge THANK YOU to you for all of your help. In this day and age life for many people is busy, hectic, and sometimes chaotic. It seems busy = normal. I am sure you are a person that falls into that group of people with all you have to manage. However, busy people offering unconditional assistance is not normal; rather a rarity and a blessing. Thank you for taking the time to help me; for returning the phone calls and sending a resourceful email to help me find a band for my reception. Because of your kindness, I value your opinion and Jim and I hired one of the bands you recommended for our reception. Feel free if appropriate to share this note with your clients and colleagues as evidence of your integrity as a person and business owner. Lastly, as a way to say thank you to you, I will remember in my busy days when I am planning a wedding and relocating to St. Louis to extend that same generous, unconditional assistance to others that I come across. I guess you can say I will pay it forward to the next guy. May God Bless you and keep you, Melissa (Missy) Benoit " - January 4, 2008

The Spectrum Band was absolutely amazing and kept our guests dancing all night long. We received several compliments, and people are still asking us for the name of your band. One of Dave's aunts wrote my mom a note telling her she had so much fun and that her feet were so sore the day after the wedding from dancing so much! Throughout the planning you were quick to respond to any questions we had and you were very professional which we greatly appreciated. "Ain't that a Kick in the Head" was perfect as well, and I agree it should be a part of your set. Thank you so much for everything.

"Tim, Once again you've gone above and beyond. Thank you very much for the note and the kind words... They of course mean a lot coming from someone who has seen their share of weddings! And it obviously means a lot to know the emotions and sentiments in the room Sunday night came across so well. Erin and I were extremely happy with every aspect of the evening -- especially the music and the band. Everything was terrific, and we are such huge fans of Mary's voice. Even the song for the last dance was a nice touch as I'm a big Sarah McLachlan fan. My parents thought you were wonderful, which is nice to hear because they really enjoy dancing and pay pretty close attention to the quality of the band. Again, we so much appreciated your thoroughness and responsiveness along the way. It has been wonderful working with you and we will happily recommend the band whenever we have an opportunity.

SPECTRUM is excellent in our book and we want you to thank the entire band for the outstanding performance and for laboring through our song to Katie and Matt. We know you learned this song for us not knowing how bad we would butcher it. Also loved the USAF song. Trust that if we have another event in St Louis we will contact Spectrum first.

"Dear Tim and the rest of The Spectrum Band: I can't tell you enough how grateful we are for your outstanding performance and service at our wedding in St. Louis at Windows On Washington on 14 April. We were so impressed with how talented and professional, yet "hands on" you were. We got so much positive feedback from so many of our guests at how awesome, fun, and entertaining your band was. Many said that you were the best band they had ever heard, which I believe is saying a lot because 85% of our guests were "out-of-towners" spanning as far West as Seattle and LA, North as Chicago and parts of Canada, South as Costa Rica and as East as Boston, MA. Our wedding was by far the best party Karen and I had ever been to and The Spectrum Band was a huge part of that.

I apologize we were never able to meet, but I want you to know Dave and I were very impressed and very much enjoyed the music, dancing, and wonderful choice of songs.

Its good to hear your brother could join you too- he definately added to the evening.

"Hello Spectrum, As I was surfing the net looking for the song Route 66 I happened to click to Spectrum's website because it said you guys play Route 66. I happened to give you guys a listen, for the other's I've heard were not to my liking and then when I heard you guys play it and heard Mary's voice I just melted. Mary has a wonderful beautiful voice and she sang with ease and had a lovely smile on her face, most singers hardly ever smile and she just looked full of confidence and sang with confidence. She's a great example to the people who love music, I love it! You all are wonderful musicians and I am so impressed with the female pianist, cool! So now as I attend my jazz class workshop on Monday my assignment is to sing Route 66 and I am going to sing it just like Mary full of confidence and a smile on my face and try to sing it like her too! Thanks for the lovely website it is so wonderful and you all are so very wonderful! Sincerely, Annie Silvestre from Tualatin Oregon, (10 miles south of Portland) PS: It would be so cool if you all got to play in Portland, everyone will just love you guys!" - October 22, 2006

"Spectrum Band: A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ If I had to do it all over again, the first thing I would do is book the Spectrum Band!! Oh my gosh - they MADE the night!! I really would be rich if I had a dollar for all the compliments I've gotten. I truly can't begin to explain how great Tim, the band manager, was to work with. They had everything planned and scheduled perfectly. The music was SO much fun, and so great for all ages! They even let one of my bridesmaids play on stage with them during one of the songs (she asked them if she could play the cowbell!)! It was hilarious!! The female singer came out on the dance floor a few times and had all the guests sing along - it was great!

You truly made it a stressfree process and you guys really delivered. The band was absolutely wonderful. The band by far received the most compliments. The first words out of everyone's mouth was how great the band was. I would have wished it was how beautiful I looked but you guys definately deserved top billing.

"Siegel Wedding Gives Rave Reviews to Spectrum Band! Dear Tim: On behalf of everyone who attended our wedding, and especially Lara and Josh, the bride and groom, I want to thank Spectrum for the outstanding music! The band and all the musicians were superb. They graciously shared the stage with one of our cousins, Suzanne Wallach, who is a professional singer in Los Angeles. Suzanne sang two songs (dedicated to the happy couple) with the band. And the band was "taken" by my little 5-1/2 year old niece and had her playing tambourine on some rock tunes. Elly was really good at keeping the beat and it made a very memorable moment for her. Everyone loved the selection of songs and there was something for everyone to dance to. The traditional Jewish dances at the beginning of the reception were also a hit. The piano and bass duo during the cocktail hour added to the festive atmosphere. The music played during dinner was just right and provided a nice background to all the table conversation. Mary and Ray did a wonderful job as "mc's" in their singing. It will be my pleasure to recommend Spectrum to all my friends and colleagues. Tim, I especially appreciate the personalized attention you gave to me as a client, thinking about us as you are in the midst of your major European presentation. I hope that went well for you! I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future. Thank you for making our wedding reception so much fun.

It's sure to say from our end that everyone had an absolute blast!! We received so many compliments about the band - from all involved - young and old. And we personally received ZERO complaints (usually there is at least someone (grandma, usually, ha) complaining about the "noise" and lack of variety. We're picking up our video tomorrow evening, and can't wait to see the reception footage. Thank you for everything concerning the band - your help up front prior to the event, and Mary/Ray/band's great performance that night. We are 150% satisfied that we chose Spectrum!!

"Hi Tim: Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful performance you had for our daughter's wedding on Saturday. We got nothing but complements from our guests and I am sure you may be getting some bookings. We can really tell how much you enjoy performing and seem to have fun. As a parent we want the absolute best for our daughter's wedding (hopefully you only do this once) and I have no doubt we had the best in your band. It certainly was a wonderful part of our daughter's special day and helped make it a perfect and memorable one for her and Dave. Your band is fantastic - not just the music but also the general appearance of the band and the behavior of the band members. We are in business ourselves and those things are important to us in our employees because when they are on the jobsite their general appearance and behavior reflects who they work for so I tend to notice those things.

Thank you for your reassurance before the wedding; you were exactly right - we had nothing to worry about when it came to our music!! Ray and Mary sounded unbelievable on "All The Way" and we want to thank you for learning that song for us!

"Dear Spectrum Band - Our goal for our wedding was to create an intimate, elegant, fun atmosphere for our closest friends and family- a tall order. We love jazz and swing music. Your four piece arrangement (plus Mary of course) did an amazing job! Your music MADE our reception. Your music was a true gift. We just watched our wedding video yesterday and were able to enjoy the reception all over again. You truly did a magical job. And... Andy surprised us all by hiring the Elvis show. Our elegant, sophisticated evening was given a burst of fun, entertaining energy by Elvis himself. We wouldn't have had it any other way. Our guests had a blast- he's a great entertainer. His participation made our reception that much more memorable. We took great care to spend our wedding budget wisely. Your music was our biggest splurge and was definitely worth every penny and more. For any couples who are considering whether or not to invest in live music vs. a DJ, I have to strongly recommend hiring Spectrum Band. Tim was very informative, timely, and thorough in his responses to our many many requests during the planning phase. The band was careful to follow our requests in detail. We know that our reception wouldn't have been the same without Spectrum band lending their talents. Thanks for making our event very special and memorable! -- Wedding Reception at View Over Westport" - April 29, 2005

"Tim and the Spectrum Band: Just a note to say how much we enjoyed your performance and hard work at our wedding...We appreciate that no matter what twists and turns we put into what we asked of you, you were happy to oblige and delivered a wonderful show... Thanks also for allowing our friends (professional and non-professional singers) to perform a couple numbers with the band...Everyone had a great time and we did as well. We were so surprised by all of our guests donning Mickey and Minnie Mouse ears and we are happy that Mary was there to MC...Lastly, we want to thank you for learning and performing George Strait's, "I Cross My Heart," for our first dance...It was fabulous.

"Tim: Shawn and I had such a grand time at our reception and your terrific trio band made all the difference for a romantic, fun & lighthearted evening. We made our dance debut to Fly Me To The Moon, as our heads were in the clouds & our feet followed lightly stepping around the dance floor. We really enjoyed Ray's, David's' and Phil's' personalities! You are absolutely correct about Ray being a great Louis Armstrong! We have had many compliments on the performance of these personable gentlemen. They played requests and everyone without a partner had a chance to dance! Shawn and I appreciate your friendliness and professionalism with us in selecting our first dance song. You are so approachable, easy to work with and PATIENT! We had a lot to do in such a short time after our first band broke up. We really had no idea we would be so fortunate. Shawn and I were pleased that you and Debbie were able to extend your evening with us. I am anxious to see the photos Debbie took of us with the roses in our teeth, acting silly!

"Dear Tim: I just wanted to send a follow-up note to you to tell you how much we appreciated your incredible music on Saturday night. The band truly made the reception a fun (and sometimes a little wild) party for everyone! We couldnt have asked for a more professional and flexible group of musicians. All of our guests raved about your music and selections. Thanks again and well be recommending your band frequently (although Im certain that you rarely need the references). We enjoyed dancing the night away. -- Wedding reception at St. Louis City Hall" - December 4, 2004

Vince and Emily Mathias (Bride & Groom) - St. Louis, MO


"Tim: Everything was super!!!! We really enjoyed the music. We will be having another wedding in the near future and Eryn, my other daughter, loved you guys (sometimes Mom and Dad still know best -- Eileen and John wanted a DJ). We will be getting back to you with that date when they figure out the schedules. Your female singer is fabulous and I loved how she came out with the guests and got them involved in the fun -- she is great. Several local guests called for your number and Roseanna Gieselmann, our wedding planner, asked if one of her clients could come and see you guys at our reception. However, I am not sure if they did because I was having tooooo good of a time to notice! -- Thanks again, you guys really made a difference!!!!

Angela & Nathan Barrow (Bride & Groom) - Pacific, MO


"Dear Tim: You all made my heart sing with the incredible job you did at my only daughter's wedding! When we started on this journey over a year ago, Emily told me that at the top of her need list was a fantastic band. I had listened to your demo tape from Albany, New York and it was agreed that you were the band. But the band exceeded my expectations and truly made this event a real party and celebration. Most everyone at this wedding was from out of town and they danced the night away! We couldn't be happier-thank you so very much for really making the dream a reality! -- Wedding reception at the Frontenac Hilton Hotel in St. Louis, MO" - September 5, 2004

Ellen Briggs (Mother of the bride) - Albany, New York


"Tim: Thanks again for everything! It was a wonderful evening and we enjoyed every minute. We received numerous compliments throughout the evening on your music. Kelli and Jonathan were extremely pleased with the entire performance. We have had several people inquire about where we found such an outstanding band! In addition to the great music, Mary also did an outstanding job as Emcee for the evening. Thanks for giving us everything we wanted and more. It was great! -- Wedding reception at Stonewolf Country Club in Fairview Heights, IL" - July 31, 2004

"Tim, just wanted to thank you and your WONDERFUL band for the fantastic job you did at our daughters wedding reception on July 17, 2004, at Windows on Washington. Our guests were so impressed with the band we had chosen several people asked where we had found such a fabulous band! One of our relatives from out-of-state said he hadnt heard a band like yours in years! You had a huge part in making our reception absolutely perfect. The guests, and especially the bride and groom, had the time of their lives!!! You had everyone out on the dance floor, which is just what we had wanted! We will definitely recommend you highly to anyone looking for a band for their next event! Thank you again for your professionalism and excellence!" - July 17, 2004

"Dear Mr. Callihan: On behalf of our entire National Council and the 700 attendees of our recent international convention, I wish to congratulate you on your spectacular performance during our national convention at the Adams Mark Hotel in St. Louis. The final gala of our four day event is a very important show and you were perfectly placed as part of that send-off event. We would not have had a successful evening without the talents of The Spectrum Band. Although we were a magic convention and our delegates come for magic, having The Spectrum Band greet them as they entered the show room was a surprise and a true delight to all of them. I wish to thank you for being so very attentive to our needs. You guaranteed us the BEST and you delivered no less. All of your members were true professionals and did what they could to work with us in order to please our audience. Please thank them for us. If any other producer or event planner needs a reference on how you can impact their next important event, they need to call me. If they want the very best in professional musical entertainment, they need to contact Tim Callihan and The Spectrum Band. Best Wishes, R.G. Smith" - July 10, 2004

R.G. Smith - Executive Show Producer for the Society of American Magicians


"Tim and the band: We just wanted to thank you for your great performance at our wedding last Saturday at the Radisson in Clayton. Our guests were amazed by your talents and how you were able to keep so many on the dance floor till the end. No one wanted to leave, it was fantastic!!!! Throughout the planning process you were very easy to communicate with and so easygoing when we asked for last minute changes. The first dance song was perfect, just as we practiced at our many dance lessons. The guests loved the father-daughter song and Mary did great explaining for the father-daughter/mother-son couples in the audience to join in. Your band truly "made" our reception unforgettable for us and our guests. Thank you again and we will recommend The Spectrum Band to everyone." - June 26, 2004

Shannon and Aaron Wilson - St. Louis, MO


"Tim: It was unanimous! The evening was a huge success, and everything was perfect. Your band received huge accolades. Everyone loved the band and the song selection. Please tell each and every member that they did a great job and their efforts were greatly appreciated. Heck of a job! Thanks for making it so memorable for Linda, myself, family and friends. I am sure that a number of people have made note of the Spectrum Band. Later, Brad -- Wedding reception at The Butterfly House" - June 12, 2004

Brad Heinze (Groom) - St. Louis, MO


"Tim, I don't think I can put down in words how much fun we had at the wedding and how much it was a direct result of having your band perform. We have been to a number of functions where the band was good and we walked away with a positive feeling about the performance by the lead singer or another member of the band. In this case we were so impressed by the level of talent at all levels. We have heard endless comments about the band with every member being praised. My daughter keeps singing the Louis Armstrong song that the sax player sang and we all agree that you can never have too much "Cow Bell". Thanks again for making it a memorable event. We look forward to hearing you at Faust Park this summer. -- Wedding reception at Marriott West" - June 5, 2004

Ron Carel (Father of the groom) - St. Louis, MO


"What can I say? The Spectrum Band is awesome - they're the best. All my guests said that the band jacked the "class" level of our reception up several notches. And as for sound - they can't be beat - just listen to their demo! They were also incredibly easy to work with - this is coming from a total control freak who wanted everything to be perfect, down to the last detail. The Spectrum Band worked with me, were totally flexible, listened to what I wanted and made it happen. And guess what? They WERE perfect, down to the last detail. I needed some pretty detailed music editing from CDs for our ceremony and Tim weaved it together perfectly, no questions asked. Except of course, "Is this what you wanted?" Other bands that I looked into didn't really want to listen to what I wanted, and were completely inflexible. The other guys said, "Here's what we do." The Spectrum Band said, "How can we help make your day perfect?" I told them, and they did it! One of the best parts of the planning process is that Tim is an incredibly detailed and organized manager. This was such a relief and it took all the pressure off so we could concentrate on other parts of the planning. There was never any worry about the band, and they really came through and delivered a performance we all remember. I don't remember that much dancing at any other reception I've been to. I was a bit nervous about hiring a band that had never played a "commitment ceremony" but I needn't have been - they did a terrific job and were clearly very happy to do it. They adapted to our situation perfectly. They even showed some creative spontaneity that went over well with our guests (and us)! The whole evening went so smoothly and the band leader helped make all that happen. I can't say enough good things about The Spectrum Band - BOOK THEM now before someone else does!" - June 4, 2004

"Hi Tim, I just wanted to say thank you for a fabulous, fabulous party at the Ladue Racquet Club with your band leading the entertainment this past Saturday night at Lauren and Justin's wedding. We just wanted to recognize those efforts and say that we really appreciated your services. Thanks so much and again we appreciate everything you did." - May 22, 2004

Candace Martz (Mother of bride) - St. Louis, MO


"Dear Tim & Spectrum Band: You guys rock! Thank you so much for helping create a magical day for Jeff & me. You were professional as our emcees and incredibly FUN & energetic with the music. I love that we had people packing the dance floor up until the last song which came far too quickly! Please notice the enclosed as a much deserved tip to be distributed to all the band members. God bless & thanks again! -- Wedding reception at Marriott in downtown St. Louis" - March 13, 2004

Marci & Jeff Pritts - St. Louis, MO


"THIS IS A PUBLIC NOTE THAT WAS POSTED ON THEKNOT.COM MESSAGE BOARD BY ONE OF THE BAND'S CURRENT CLIENTS: "We did quite a bit of looking to find our band and after considering all the "really good" bands in town, I have to agree that Spectrum is the best one! They have tons of experience and Tim (the leader) was by far the most professional of everyone that we contacted. He has been interviewed by a lot of wedding magazines because of his experience and we really liked having a seasoned professional in charge of the entertainment for our reception. A lot of the demo CDs that we received were kind of cheesy but Spectrum's was far above the rest (IMO). They even sent us a DVD so we could watch them and it's excellent and fun but we still went to see them live to meet Tim and Mary. They had already sold us with their sound and personality but when we saw them live they even look great on the stage so we're excited for our "big day" to finally arrive. They have a 4-piece group but we wanted the full 8-piece (I think you have to get the 8-piece on Saturday nights). Another feature that we wanted was both a male and female vocalist (Mary is awesome) and also a real brass section (trumpet and saxophone) so they could play all the big band and swing songs we wanted. We just love that new "RED" radio station that plays the swing and jazz music. Price was very competitive for an 8-piece band and we hired Spectrum for 6 hours of music. I would recommend that you compare this with all bands. Some have really high prices (with small bands) for some reason but we scratched them from our list. I have to leave for work now. Isn't the knot addictive. I try to not look when I'm at work but it's impossible." - March 8, 2004

"Dear Tim: We enjoyed having you guys play at our reception and we heard many wonderful comments about how great you guys were. You all were so very professional and easy to work with and we really appreciated that. If you ever need any references, I would be happy to help. Take care, April" - December 6, 2003

"Dear Tim and Fellow Band Members: Thank you all for a fabulous performance at my daughter's wedding reception last Saturday night. You all were wonderful!!! We received so many compliments on the band. Mary and Ray, you both have beautiful voices and Mary, you did such a great job as the emcee. It was so much fun dancing to your wonderful music. Tim, we can never thank you enough for your professionalism. You have been great to work with! We are so impressed with your promptness in replying to our inquiries. You have always been so accessible and quick to respond. Thank you for your flexibility and willingness to meet our special requests. We very much appreciate that Ray reworked the original playlist to meet our preferences. You both were very accommodating and it was very much appreciated! Also, Tim your e-mail to Angela days before the wedding meant so much to her and me. It was very reassuring and you were absolutely right...we did have a lot to be concerned with, but worrying about your band was not one of them. Please extend our thanks to Steve Davis also. He was a big hit! He added another dimension to our already wonderful evening. It was so much fun! Of course, it goes without saying that we would highly recommend The Spectrum Band to anyone wanting a professional, easy-to-work-with, and wonderful sounding band for any special occasion. Dont be surprised if you get much business in the future from many of our guests who couldn't stop raving about you. Thank you again. With sincere and heartfelt thanks, Bonnie." - November 29, 2003

Sherry G. (mother of bride) - St. Louis, MO


"THIS IS A PUBLIC NOTE THAT WAS POSTED ON THEKNOT.COM MESSAGE BOARD BY ONE OF THE BAND'S PREVIOUS CLIENTS: We had The Spectrum Band for my wedding and absolutely loved them! They have a male and a female singer and are not at all cheesy. I wanted exactly what you want...the good mix of big band, ballads, newer stuff, funky stuff, etc. I would say they were one of my best vendors. There were a few things I could tell them "just do whatever" and they handled everything wonderfully. For instance, my mother-in-law was having a fit because we wanted to be introduced into the dining room by the emcee of the band. She thought this was tacky. So I spoke with Tim (manager and drummer of the band) and he said it would be handled elegantly...and it was! NO worries! They will learn any special song you want them to play, if it's not already on their play list. They played everything from "September" by Earth, Wind and Fire to "Don't Know Why" by Nora Jones to "Fly Me to the Moon" by Frank Sinatra. They even had a member who does an AWESOME impression of Louis Armstrong and sang "What A Wonderful World." One thing they don't play much of is country music, which is why I liked them. I just don't like country music. They know a few country songs, but they don't have a country sound. They also offer cocktail hour musicians like a single pianist, jazz trio, or jazz sextet. If you want more information go to spectrumband.net. Everyone still keeps telling me how great they were!!" - November 7, 2003

"Tim-You guys were great! Thanks for also coordinating the entertainment during the band breaks. Clearly everyone enjoyed the sounds. I know my feet were sure hurting the next day! Thanks for also playing Nelly off "Momma's Mix" CD- clearly one of my favorites :). All and all it was quite a magical long weekend. Everything was perfect. As far as I'm concerned a band can make or break a party and Spectrum clearly made ours. You guys are true pros and please feel free to use me as a very satisfied and enthusiastic reference. -- Reception at Old Warson Country Club" - October 11, 2003

Chris Chadwick (mother of bride) - St. Louis, MO


"Spectrum was absolutely fantastic!!!! The music just made the wedding. I had so many guests come up to me and tell me how great the band was. And judging by the jam packed dance floor all night, everyone agreed. I'd be happy to serve as a reference for the band if you ever need it. Thank you so much for everything!!! -- Reception at Old Warson Country Club" - October 11, 2003

Anna Chadwick (bride) - St. Louis, MO


"THIS IS A MESSAGE ABOUT THE SPECTRUM BAND THAT WAS POSTED ON THEKNOT.COM WEDDING WEB SITE BY A RECENT CLIENT: I really cannot say enough good things about the Spectrum Band! They were so wonderful. They sang Happy Birthday to DHs two cousins who share a birthday. They have a member who does a GREAT impression of Louis Armstrong and sang What a Wonderful World. Mary, the band's lead female vocalist, really knew how to keep everyone on the dance floor. She could tell right away that our friends like a wild time, so she had people playing the tambourine and maracas. And after hearing about my karaoke habits in my MOHs basement, she even handed the microphone to me! They were just so much fun and couldnt have been better! They even learned Time of My Life for our last song of the night and it was perfect. -- Reception at The Junior League" - October 3, 2003

LeAnne (Finney) Schaper - St. Louis, MO


"I cannot thank you guys enough for how great you all were at my wedding reception. 'What A Wonderful World' turned out so good, he is wonderful. I cannot pick one song that I like the most because they were all outstanding. I received so many compliments from guests on how entertaining you were and how all of you had incredible voices. It was a good feeling at 11:30 that the dance floor was still packed with people. Thank you once again for making my reception so memorable. If you need any type of references please feel free to have them call me. I cannot say enough to the professionalism that you and your band members bring along with a great time for all.

"Hi Tim: Scott and I just wanted to thank you and the rest of the band for doing an amazing job at our wedding reception. You blew us away with your professionalism and musical talent. Everyone was commenting to us all throughout the night about how wonderful you all were and we have to agree with them. Many people said it was the best wedding reception they'd ever been to! We really loved hearing you do "Faithfully." Thank you so much for learning that song for us. The whole evening was great. If you ever need references or anything, let us know.

"Dear Tim: Thanks so much to you and the band for doing such a great job. Everyone has been raving about how terrific you were and several people said that you were the best group they ever heard at a wedding.

We are most appreciative of your talented group and are so happy that you were all such a special part of this very special day in our daughter and son-in-law's life! We couldn't have wished for anything more! We have had many phone calls asking about the band that played at the reception and we are delighted to give them your name. Hopefully, you will receive additional bookings! I will be calling you soon to discuss the evening in a little more personal way and to thank you again!

"Dear Tim and the rest of Spectrum Band: As you can imagine last week took on a life of it's own. I didn't get a chance to check my email until tonight and I had 50 messages. I certainly hope that the couples were able to come last night to hear you at The Starlight Roof. We would not have minded at all and they would have seen the happiest group of wedding partiers ever. Your band was perfect for our celebration. The variety of music matched the group perfectly and your singer was fantastic. I usually fall asleep around 9 in the evening, but last night I was isappointed that the party was over. Everyone had a wonderful time and you set the tone. Thank you for making our evening a roaring success. I will be recommending you to everyone. Thank you." - January 4, 2003

We had a lot of feedback from the guests about how much they enjoyed Mary's singing, both at the church, and the reception. If you have an e-mail address for her, please send it to me so I can also thank her! We certainly will recommend your band to anyone looking for great entertainment." - October 26, 2002

Carole Ruby (Mother of the bride) - St. Louis, MO


"Dear Tim: I can't begin to tell you how many times guests at Julie and Jason's wedding came up to me and asked me "where did you get this band?They're great, fantastic, etc..." The music during dinner was exceptional, it set the perfect mood. The Speiring Room at The Sheldon has to be a challenge for a band because of the low ceiling but yet you adjusted to it perfectly. Your play selection and especially the vocals were second to none. A daughter of a very good friend of ours is getting married next September in Chicago. She is heart sick that the wedding is not in St. Louis so that you could be a part of it. Spectrum played such a big part in the success of the wedding reception. Thank you." - October 5, 2002

Don Hoffman (father of the bride) - St. Louis, MO

I was a little concerned, wondering if people would loosen up, because many of them don't know each other very well...but, it worked out just great...everyone had a fabulous time. Thank you also for letting the guys play a few songs. They allreally enjoyed that...they are still talking about it!!!! Well, thank you for everything.

Everything sounded great, especially "our song". :) Thanks for everything, and I cannot tell you how many wonderful things everyone in attendance said about the band and the music.

Both you and Mary were great with the kids! Thanks again for making our reception such a wonderful time." - September 8, 2002

"I just wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful job you, Mary, and the entire Spectrum Band did at our wedding reception at the Missouri HistoryMuseum. Jeff and I were thrilled with your entertainment, and many of our guests were very complimentary of your band! (everyone kept saying "where did you find that band?!" / "...they were great!"). Thank you again for being so flexible with our wishes, and for letting our musical friends (and me!) participate with you all as well. We had so much fun, and I hope you all did, too. A special thanks to Linda and Jay for sitting in for the ceremony. Linda was so very helpful at the rehearsal, as well. I don't think the ceremony music could have gone any better.

"Dear Tim, Mary, and Spectrum Band: Thank you so much for providing the most upbeat entertainment at our wedding. The music was amazing and it made the evening even more magical. Elvis was an extra special touch that we will never forget. Chris was so surprised and so were our guests. We appreciate all of your dedication to our wedding and the practices you had with Stephen Davis. Our phones are ringing nonstop asking about our band and Elvis. We also got the chance to attend your public performance at Bluebird Park. We really enjoyed hearing you again. We hope you are there every summer so we can continue enjoying such a fabulous band. Everything was spectacular! Thank you." - June 15, 2002

Chris and Meredith Sallee - St. Louis, MO


"Dear Tim & Band: The reception was terrific! I could not have chosen more talented or dependable musicians, and I very much appreciated your professionalism and willingness to honor my special requests. As you probably could tell, our guests had a wonderful time thanks in large part to your ability to work the crowd. Thanks so much for you participation in what was an amazing day for Kelly and me and for your willingness to make the trek to Branson. You have a lot to offer future brides." - June 1, 2002

"My wife and I, along with the new bride and groom, wish to thank all of the members of the band for being so professional and for the excellence of your outstanding music. We have attended many social functions that had live music, however none could compare with your excellent sound and selection. All of my family and friends still tell us how great your band was and that they never heard a band that could compare to your group. It should also be noted that your lead singer, Mary Polak, does not have a golden voice, but a platinum voice as determined by my whole family who are devoted music lovers." - September 28, 2001

"I wanted to thank you for being so professional. You have by far been the best company I've worked with regarding my wedding on September 23, 2000. In fact, you have better customer service than most companies I've ever worked with. That is saying a lot because I have been a purchasing agent for six years and currently handle all purchasing for St. Charles County Government. Knowing that you will be handling the entertainment for my wedding gives me great peace of mind." - October 15, 2000
