.....Thank you for keeping the dance floor alive and for a perfect evening x
(Mr and Mrs passmore June 2017)

We now come complete with our DJ service included with every booking at no extra cost. This is not a cheesy disco, and you can have complete control of his playlist if you want to!

We have many years of experience playing at weddings, enabling us to provide a complete music service which gives you a professional DJ, sound engineer and full band. Using the same equipment to minimise on space! This gives you and your guests a complete nights entertainment, with the excitement of a live band. 

.....Simply amazing. It's been a month since our wedding and our guests from all over the world keep talking about you. Awesome music and very accommodating band. Highly recommended. Pete & Hayley Gass - June 2017

The thing that sets us apart from many other function bands is the quality of our performance and live sound, as well as the chemistry that we bring to the stage at every wedding - sometimes even spilling out onto the dancefloor! 

We work closely with every couple to ensure that everything runs smoothly and with years of experience in playing for weddings we understand how to make your reception rock! We listen to our couples, ask what your favourite bands are and build a set just for your wedding!

Our extensive setlist caters for all ages including classic tunes from The Beatles and The Jam through to The Killers and Kings of Leon. You can be absolutely sure that guests of all ages - from grunge kids to granny - will be up dancing and singing all night!  

We come with a complete top specification PA and lighting system supplied by a separate company to ensure you have only the best for your wedding. The DJ will be on hand to take requests or have your specific playlist ready to go so you can party the night away! (Please note this is not a member of the band!)

Please visit our website to hear audio samples and see us in action at weddings!

If you have any questions or require further information then please just get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.

Our testimonials reflect the relationships we build with our couples, and we feel this is such an important part of your day.

    The Spectrum played at our wedding on Saturday 30th June just a few days ago!! I Felt so relaxed keeping in contact throughout the whole build up to our wedding. James replied to every email and always kept me informed. The band on the night were amazing and they did not disappoint. The atmosphere was electric, the set, the lighting.. everything was how me and my husband wanted it to be. The band really got involved with our guests and they made our 1st dance one to remember!! Highlight of the night was oh sit down oh sit down haha and the night ended with a lovely rendition of oasis and wonderwall. It's a night i will never forget. Thank you so much Xxxx Rachael & Neil

    Well...what can we say....AMAZING!!! From start to finish the dance floor was never empty! Our guests absolutely loved the music played and how the guys got everybody engaged and bouncing around! Our Irish guests were certainly loving it...I think the band definitely noticed this! Thank you so so much for topping off an amazing day with an awesome evening of quality music. James has been fantastic with booking, conversations and general advice. If there’s one thing you do for your wedding...book The Spectrum! X Lindsay & Michael

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your starting price?

Our price 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. 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!)
