.....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!)

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.

    This testimonial was entered by The Spectrum - Live Wedding Band & DJ. on 13 January 2018

    The spectrum played at our wedding in October at The Blakelands. They were amazing on the night and in the lead up to our wedding. James communicated very promptly from my first enquiry. I was so pleased they offered a DJ option too so the party would carry on in between sets. With this, and after watching you tube videos of them we decided to book the band. Our first dance song wasn't a song the band knew. They learnt it for us and performed it brilliantly on the night. Our guests also selected a song they wanted playing on our rsvp's. This was passed to the band / DJ and they happily incorporated this into the night. On the night the spectrum were amazing. They play at The Blakelands regularly so they set up very quickly and without hassle. Following our first dance they got all our guests up and dancing. The atmosphere was brilliant. The floor was filled until the very end. I would highly recommend them.

    We had The Spectrum play at our wedding a few weeks ago and they were fab!! We already had high hopes from watching their footage, but they were even better live! Just perfect. Super fun and friendly guys too - just the people you want to have as part of your wedding. James' communication before hand was great too. We have received so many compliments from our guests since. The Spectrum really made the party special - everyone had such good fun. We really cannot thank you all enough!!!!
