  • "Pete & Katie Thomas review."
    This testimonial was entered by The Spectrum on 14 September 2019

    The Spectrum fitted our special day at the Blakelands on 22/12/18 perfectly, Katie and I knew we only had one shot at getting the evening entertainment right and lucky for us so did The Spectrum. The band fulfilled our every requirement and talored the repotoir to the audience perfectly, going the extra mile and even learning a new piece of music in one week to play and sing our first dance. They even let me sing a song with them creating a special moment where my wife got to see just what she means to me. The Spectrum rocked our party from start to finish, with the fantastic band and exceptional sound set up even playing tracks in the bands break where other groups we looked at just leave the room silent. The Spectrum had the dance floor magic that kept our guests dancing all night. we cannot wait to use the band again in the future. If you want top quality look no more, The Spectrums the band to be rocking your dance floor.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your starting price?

Our price starts from £1000 but depends on many factors such as our journey to get you and time of year. Just send us an enquiry and we will get back to you asap.

What services do you offer?

We offer a fully live four piece band with engineered sound and a full DJ service. We always come with a top specification PA & lighting setup. We can also play a 'live lounge' style set during your drinks reception or meal.

What is included in the wedding package?

We usually arrive between 5 - 6pm and supply a mixture of live music and DJ. We bring everything with us like a top specification PA with lighting for the band and your dancefloor. As well as a DJ you also get a sound engineer to mix the band whilst they play live giving you and your guests the best possible mix of sound. (A band has very little idea what they sound like out front whilst they play!)

How far in advance should I contact you?

Saturdays are our busiest days and can get booked up to 2 years in advance. Our current furthest booking is 2022! We always recommend not leaving it too late. (Especially if this is the job that the groom is given!!!)

What style of music do you offer?

You can take a look at our playlist to see what we play. We have created a songlist that works really well for weddings where there is such a diverse range of ages. You will only hear popular songs that everyone will want to sing, dance and enjoy partying to!

Type of musical group:

A four piece rock, pop and indie band. All professional musicians who love to rock weddings!

Size of musical group:

A four piece live band plus DJ. You can add a three piece horn section if you want to make an even bigger impact!

Repertoire:

A large range of songs from the last 60 years!

Is it possible to request something that is not in the repertoire?

Yes of course! We love to learn first dances or a song that you just have to hear if it''s not in our current repertoire. We also get in contact with you to see which songs you really have to have from our setlist and then we create a set around these choices. Remember our DJ is there too and they can play all your choices or you can leave them to it!

Experience:

We have been rocking weddings for the last 6 years! As musicians we have years of experience and have played on TV, radio and many live gigs.

Do you have your own equipment?

We bring with us high quality professional equipment plus backups just in-case anything goes wrong. All sound and lighting is provided in fact all you need to do is point us in the direction of our performance area and make sure we have some power!

Are you able to travel?

We travel all over the country. We can travel all over the world!

Is there a charge for travelling?

We are based in The Midlands but travel all over the UK. The best way to get an accurate cost is to supply us your reception postcode when you send us an enquiry.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No, we only play one wedding per day.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

We work with a professional event and PA team to give you the best possible sound and lighting. If you want more information about them head to Chamberlain events.

What is the length of time of the act?

We play a minimum of 2 x 45 minutes but we usually try to play around 2 hours of live music. The DJ plays at all other times.

How much time do you need to prepare for an act?

We require a minimum of one hour to setup and soundcheck so we can provide your entertainment!

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Per event.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours

You can add an extra 30 minutes live music for £200 and the DJ can continue per hour upto 3am for an extra cost of £100 per hour.

How do you charge for extra time?

It's not normally needed as 2 hours live music is plenty but see above!

What are the forms of payment?

BACS, Paypal and cash.

Can you learn our first dance?

We love to play for the bride & grooms first dance. It is such a special thing! We don't charge extra for this and so long as it suits a four piece band then we will rehearse it and get it ready for your reception.

Is it safe to book direct rather than an agency?

When booking with us you will receive a contract which both parties sign. This is a legal document and gives you exactly the same protection as booking through an agency. You will have contact numbers and you can even setup a meeting with us to go over planning, times and songs beforehand.

Can we come and see you play live?

This is probably the most frequently asked question we get and one that can sound a little strange when we answer it! Not really no! Ok so at this point you might just book the band down the pub you saw last week but......! We only play closed private events like private parties, corporate events, military balls and most importantly lots of weddings like yours! We would never invite prospective couples to a wedding to 'pop their head in' or to stand at the back of the room. We value our clients privacy and the fact that your wedding day is a special day, not a shop window. The way we give our couples the chance to see us is by the live videos we upload to our media pages like Facebook etc. These are always 100% live and never dubbed or altered. We are proud that we show the band and the dancefloor like this and even though it's usually from an iPhone we prefer that to some edited video with a recorded track over it. You can also see videos of us playing at other events mentioned above!

Will it be the same four band members?

Shhh...this is an industry secret that many bands don't tell you!......You get lots of bands these days that are made up of random band members. These bands are run by a manager that fills the date then sees who is available for your wedding date. This means that for lots of weddings your band might not have played together before! With The Spectrum you get the same four guys band members that have played together for years giving you a better musical experience! (If anyone is ill we all have 'deps' ready to step in who have rehearsed with us and are ready to go!)
