    You wont be disappointed

    The Spectrum played at my daughters wedding in Sept 2018 in Hampshire, It was honestly the best decision we made, the dance floor was packed all night, their playlist was spot on, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Thanks Shirley for your awesome review!! It was an absolute pleasure to play for you all....what a great night.

    Amazing wedding band

    The Spectrum played at our wedding last weekend and they were amazing! James was also so helpful and flexible in the lead up to the wedding when we didn’t know whether there would be Covid restrictions until the last minute! In the end they played outdoors so that our guests could dance safely and it was a real festival atmosphere. All of our guests kept saying how good they were and their energy and great music made sure the dance floor was never empty.

    The Spectrum's reply:

    Thanks for your lovely review Emma! It was an awesome evening and Deer Park is such a stunning venue. You guys rocked!

    An absolute dream come true!

    The Spectrum were awesome from start to finish! Every plan we made, every communication was just brilliant - professional, fun, personal, friendly, talented and a real game changer for our evening celebrations! I will never forget our first dance, played live at our request and we had so much fun! Our guests had the best time…the dance floor was full the whole night! We could not recommend more highly! Everything we dreamed of and are so grateful to James and the band for everything ❤️

    The Spectrum's reply:

    Jenny thanks so much for your review! You know how much it means to us and it was an absolute pleasure to play for you and Mark.
    You were amazing and rocked all night! X

    Best band ever!

    Finally getting around to writing our thank you's and reviews from our wedding day which was made even more special by the fab suppliers we chose. Mainly here on Hitched!

    My husband & I spent a long time researching every aspect of our big day and wanted to get everything right. As we all do?!!

    Our initial contact with the band was very good, fast replies with email/text and our questions were answered fully. It's clear that the band know what they're doing and my husband was impressed with their videos from actual weddings - something which we couldn't find in many places. (My hubby used to play in a band so knows what to look/listen for!)

    After we booked James was still really good at replying, even though our day was over 18months away and we always felt like a priority. In the run-up to the big day we spoke over Skype and decided timings/songs and again James was mega helpful.

    The actual reception was just brilliant. All our guests loved them and it was amazing to see the youngest to oldest guests dancing away. It all just worked really well and it's obvious that they know how to play for weddings!

    The DJ part was equally as good and again my husband was impressed.

    We are so happy we chose The Spectrum for our big day and would recommend them for everyone who wants a really good party!

    Kelly & Dave X

    The Spectrum's reply:

    Hi Kelly & Dave. It was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. You said you wanted a band to bring the party atmosphere and I think that was a BIG TICK!!! ;) Hope you're both well. X

    We loved The Spectrum!

    We booked The Spectrum after watching there videos and reading reviews about them on Hitched.

    A little Facebook searching also helped us choose them and realised they were just what we wanted - a band that had fun!

    James was really helpful when we booked and we even met up with him beforehand to go over our requests and timings. He like the band to get everything spot on during the reception and everyone loved them.

    I can't tell you how much fun we both had and I know that some of our friends are already booking them up for parties and other weddings!

    Thanks The Spectrum for rocking our wedding! We loved you! X

    A brilliant band who know how to rock your wedding

    The Spectrum is a fantastic band, who totally rocked! We were looking for a band who understands that music and 'the party' is a huge aspect of a wedding and we weren't disappointed. From the first interactions with James we knew we were in sync. We WhatsApp'd a lot in the lead up and also FaceTimed to go through the flow from our first dance, to a mini set, to the DJ, to the main set and talk about our choices of music. The band understood the technical requirements from our venue and were able to take that responsibility from us, working with them directly which was a huge help. They are not only professional, friendly, understanding, calming and timely, they know how to rock your party! Thanks Spectrum, memories for life ??

    The Spectrum's reply:

    Thanks Katy. It was one crazy party and everyone was most definitely readyto party. It was so cool to have you both on stage during the song....everyone singing together! X

    Highly recommended!

    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!!!!

    Our reception rocked!

    I have been asked to leave some feedback for The Spectrum so here goes...
    First thing I have to say is our reception was fab! The whole evening could have been a DISASTER but thankfully James and the band made the day end quite literally on a high note.
    Everything was running really, really late due to uncontrollable reasons and our venue was less than helpful with timings going out of the window. (Family reasons, long story!) James helped advise that we move our first dance to the start of their set which meant that I could relax and enjoy the night. I have had lots of messages about the wedding and everyone mentions the band and how much they enjoyed singing and dancing. We looked at loads online and loved their videos..they are even better live! James is very good at communication and we felt so pleased to have them be a part of our day. Don't hesitate and book them up! Helen & Dave. x

    The Spectrum's reply:

    Hi Helen & Dave,

    Thanks for your lovely review.
    It was a pleasure to play for you both...and your brilliant guests!
    Hope you both enjoyed Paris!!!

    The Spectrum really did a great job at our wedding. Really easy to deal with and very helpful. They learned our first dance and played it beautifully which our guests loved too!
    The dance floor was packed all night and our last song was just brilliant....everyone around us right at the end of the day! It was so special. We would highly recommend them.

    Brilliant band.

    The Spectrum played at my wedding and they were incredible! Top lads to meet and a fantastic band who really got the place going and helped to create a great atmosphere! Also worth adding that prior to the big day they were very easy to organise with and quick to respond to any calls/emails which always helps when planning for a wedding! Very flexible to what we wanted and played the songs to suit the crowd and everyone was delighted with them both with their sets and their DJ which was included, would definitely very highly recommend, thanks gents!

    Truly the best band ever!

    If I could mark them any higher I would! They were truly amazing from morning till night. Nothing was too much trouble and the way they got all of my guests on the dance floor was truly epic! Truly the best band ever and
    Genuinely made the first dance with my husband truly memorable. I can't thank you enough for making my wedding that extra special thank you again and again.

    Best thing we did!

    This amazing band played at our wedding and I can honestly say booking this band was the best thing we did. It really made our evening reception stand out. The band learnt our first dance song which made it so special. The band are fun, accommodating, sooo helpful and flexible. Nothing was too much trouble. If you are thinking of booking this band do not hesitate!!

    Best choice we made.

    The Spectrum were totally awesome at our wedding! They played a brilliant set which had people up and dancing straight away and they created an electric party atmosphere. Just what we wanted to get the night started! They were great to deal with in the run up to the wedding and we even had a meeting with James (singer) to discuss our music....nothing was too much trouble! Our venue also commented on how great they were as they hear lots of bands and offered to add them onto the suppliers list! So in all, I couldn't recommend them highly enough for anyone's wedding. A deserved 5 stars!!! X
