Modern Bride Music Special

Here’s a look at what your guests could see at your event!

We recently purchased a brand new PA system that provides CD quality sound for our guests and we also purchased a brand new LED lighting system so that you and your guests will have an evening that's just as visually dazzling as it is musically dazzling. Don’t let the stage size in the pictures above mislead you since this was a huge stage provided for our New Year’s Eve performance at Chateau on the Lake. We use a sophisticated in-ear monitoring system that eliminates the need for lots of stage monitors (speakers for musicians) scattered about on the stage. We can set the band up in a very small space relative to other bands our size.

"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. To say "job well done" is an understatement! Sincerely, Steve Walker" -- Booking agent for a corporate event at Rend Lake in Benton, IL"

"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. Elizabeth Smith" -- Wedding reception

"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!! Colleen Lorenz" -- Wedding reception

The Knot - Best of Weddings - 2015

Spectrum Band was selected to receive the “Best of Weddings 2015 ” Award by The Knot! They changed the criteria this year and the winners have to be in the top 1% of all nationwide vendors rather than only being in the top 5% as in the past. We also won this award in 2013 & 2014 and we’re very happy to win the award again since this is the most prestigious award that any band/vendor can win. You can count on us to deliver exactly what you need to keep your guests entertained all evening!

Spectrum Band was also selected to receive the 2015 Couple's Choice” Award by WeddingWire. We also received the same award for the past 6 years and couldn't be more pleased with that recognition from our past wedding couples. This award recognizes the top 5% of local wedding professionals from the WeddingWire Network that demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism.
