A recent SPECTRUM bride writes a blog about planner her wedding… Here’s the entry about finding us: http://bride.baltimoremagazine.net/hitched/
Sorry this is so late but I just wanted to thank you and Spectrum for the awesome experience we had. Chioke and I are so glad we booked with you for such a special day. I don’t know how you guys did it, but the band was so in tune with our guests and kept the party going!
Thanks so much again for allowing my Dad to sing – it was such a great memory to have. Also, for helping my sister, Erika, surprise us with the BEST Maid of Honor speech ever!!!
Spectrum is not only an amazing group of professionals, but it really felt like you personalized our wedding reception to fit our needs and make it a night to remember. Chioke and I (as with most of our guests) were grinning from ear to ear after such a fun night.
Thanks so much for your help! Best Wishes- Anna
“Between in-person and YouTube videos, we listened to over 25 bands, local and national. We looked at the high end and the low end. We looked at DJs. We looked at burning our own music and renting speakers. Spectrum was head and shoulders above what our hopes could have been. Once we saw them in person, we had a feeling they might be that way. When they showed up to play, they rocked it.” See more…..
We hired SPECTRUM for our wedding band and could not have been more excited about our decision! Getting a wedding band is an investment for sure, but these guys were worth every single penny. They were super organized from beginning to end, George even double checked with us before the wedding party was announced that he had all the name pronunciations correct, and he made sure that everybody was lined up in order. They learned our first dance song, and exceeded our expectations on the performance. The dance floor was PACKED all night, and nobody wanted the reception to end! Guests have been telling us that they are the best wedding band they’ve ever heard, and it was the most fun reception they had ever attended. If you want a fun and memorable wedding reception, hire SPECTRUM – you will not be disappointed!!! (no, they did not pay me to write this!)
SPECTRUM is an absolutely fantastic band. The dance floor at our wedding was packed from the beginning until the end of the wedding, largely due to SPECTRUM. Several of our guests had comments to the effect of “this was the best music I’ve heard at a wedding.” Much of SPECTRUM’s effectiveness comes from the diversity in what they are able to play well. I was blown away that Spectrum could play Prince, AC/DC, Puff Daddy, The Temptations, and Rhianna, all at a high level.
We were also pleased by the professionalism of the band. They were a pleasure to deal with leading up to the wedding and were able to incorporate our input in putting together their set list for our wedding.
SPECTRUM Band was amazing and I saw many people dancing who I had never seen dance before! SPECTRUM was energetic and fun to watch . . . I couldn’t imagine any other band being as good as they were. Thank you so much Spectrum!

Hi Ben —
Michelle and I wanted to thank for making our wedding reception exactly what we envisioned. You brought so much energy to the dance floor that it felt more like a rock concert than a wedding. Our friends have been telling us how much fun they had at our wedding and have mentioned without fail how great the music was. We could not agree more.
For that, we are grateful.
Please pass along our gratitude to Ramon, George, Jenni and the rest of the band.
This was Michelle’s favorite part of the wedding, no joke: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIMo4R5ZVFg
Thanks again, Arden/Michelle
Ben and the rest of Spectrum,
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! You truly made our wedding a dream come true, from beginning to end!! You are all such amazing performers, entertainers, and most of all- people. We feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you throughout this process. Every single person that was at our wedding RAVED about you all, and so many of our friends have inquired about you for their own affairs. We truly appreciate you all putting your hearts and souls into your work, it is so very obvious how passionate you all are! Our wedding would have never been the same without your presence, and you have all touched our lives forever. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible talents, as well as your warm personalities. We could never thank you enough! We hope you all take care, and we look forward to MANY MORE celebrations together! We love you!!!
Love, THE ENGORNS (and the Zenitz’s, too!)

I am commenting as the mother of the bride.
A band is a hefty investment for a wedding, but SPECTRUM was well worth it–they played and performed beyond our expectations.
They worked with my daughther and I ,were most accommodating and even created a motown medley for my husband. Their down time was minimal and the played all the songs we had requested. A good band has everyone on the dance floor and it was obvious very few people were watching and not dancing.
Thanks to all the band members of SPECTRUM for creating wonderful memories.

Spectrum was fantastic! Not only did they mold their repertoire to our needs, but they went over and beyond the call of duty throughout the night. They never took any breaks and played the whole noght through. The singers were spectacular, and the band kept the dance floor full all night. All of our guests said that Spectrum was the best wedding band that they have ever heard before. They were great at reading the crowd. Spectrum contributed to the best day of our lives.

We used Spectrum through Washington Talent Agency for our wedding and we were absolutely BLOWN away.
They were phenomenal. There aren’t words to describe how happy my husband and I are with Spectrum. We booked them after seeing them perform at a showcase in their offices in Rockville. We loved them immediately and never looked at another wedding band. They were incredibly responsive and even sat down with us a month before the wedding to talk thru our ideas, favorite and least favorite songs, and the timeline for the evening.
Our wedding had a lot of moving pieces but one thing we NEVER worried about was the band. They did a phenomal Horah and our dance floor was PACKED the entire evening. My 60 year old mother said after the wedding that she had never “wanted to dance that badly” at a wedding before and that she “couldn’t stop dancing!”. Spectrum made our wedding and we couldnt be more grateful to Ben, George and the whole band.
People were coming up to us all night raving about the music!

Washington Talent did a great job of guiding us to the band, Spectrum, who gave a fantastic performance at my wedding reception. Spectrum’s energy and vocals kept my guests on the dance floor. George was a great MC for the event and Ben on keyboards had excellent song selection to keep the evening moving. My guests asked for an encore at the end of the night! I highly recommend Spectrum. They made my reception such a success!

Washington Talent Agency was very easy to work with from the start. Even though I was fairly set on Spectrum (from a glowing recommendation I had received), they sent us a disc of available bands for our date. They were all great and it was a hard decision. Spectrum though was amazing and we were more than happy with our choice. Ben and the band were so easy to work with and any request we had, they met. Even requests during the wedding, they were than happy to do! Everyone at the wedding LOVED them. My father, who can be pretty hard to please, but loves a good band, was especially impressed and was on the dance floor the whole time. They did a great job of getting everyone on the dance floor and keeping them there with a great mix of current hits and all time favorites. From older to younger, everyone was out there dancing and having a ball. What I thought was especially impressive was that the band never stopped, except when people were talking of course! Someone was always playing or singing something appropriate to the mood while we were eating and then once we were ready to dance, they never stopped! I would, and already have, recommend Spectrum and Washington Talent Agency to anyone! Thanks, Spectrum for giving everyone at the wedding a fun night to remember!

Planning a wedding means making a lot of really tough decisions. Once the event is over you have a chance to look back and reflect on the decisions that worked out, and those that maybe you would do differently if you had it to do all over again. We can both say without hesitation that having Spectrum as our wedding band was by far THE BEST decisions we made!!! They put on one of the BEST parties that we have ever been to – by mixing today’s hits with yesterday’s favorites. They had everyone on the dance floor before dinner was even served, and people did NOT sit down until the final note. We have had so many people from the wedding tell us that Spectrum is the best band they have ever heard!
They were so flexible when it came to learning new songs and performed them as good as, if not better, than the original artists. The three leads were so interactive with the crowd and even allowed guests up on stage. We cannot wait for our next excuse to hire Spectrum for an event. If you are smart you will do the same!

We used Spectrum for our Wedding and couldn’t be happier with their performance. It was absolutely AMAZING! I can’t tell you how many people have come up to us since the wedding to get their contact information for their events. Every song they played sounded just like the originals and they had our guests up all night dancing. Hands down they are the BEST band we have seen any wedding so far and we have been to a lot. If you have them for your event you will not be disappointed!

Ben , I can’t stop the music from playing my head ….Spectrum was hotter than the weather…from the time the music started until the end of the party the dance floor was packed with high energy because of the sounds of Spectrum….we even broke the dance floor !!!!!!!! George, Meredith and Chet along the musicians created an evening everyone is still talking about…high energy, great sounds and obviously having fun while entertaining……
Thank you for making Matt and Katie’s special day even more memorable…..and thank you for accommodating every request from the ceremony, to cocktails, to dinner and then THE PARTY !!!!!!!!

Thanks for an AMAZING performance! I can’t tell you how many people have complimented us on the awesome band and asked for your information. Hopefully, you will get a lot more business from our referrals! The night was absolutely perfect and we had such a great time dancing it up with your band. Every song you played was just fantastic and the song selections were superb!
That is very cool that you are adding Sympathy for the Devil to your list because of us. You all did such a good job with that and as you saw everyone, especially those DKE Frat Boys enjoyed it. Hands down you are the BEST band we have seen at any wedding and are so glad we got to have you all perform at our event.
Hopefully we can work together again sometime down the road!

My wife and I used Washington Talent Agency and for our wedding in June of 2011. They provided musicians for our ceremony and cocktail hour and the band SPECTRUM for our reception. WTA was great to work with and all the musicians were true professionals which absolutely made our wedding. SPECTRUM is an incredible band and we highly recommend them.

This band “SPECTRUM” was absolutely amazing! They were nothing but accomodating. We were able to change songs and the order of the reception throughout the week approaching the wedding. They learned all of our special songs and sang them live for us, which was a much more personal touch as compared to a recorded version. I would recommend them for any gathering that people would need entertainment. The three lead singers are the most personable people we’ve ever met. Their attention and interaction with the crowd was one of the most enjoyable parts of the evening. They allowed the groom and groomsmen got to sing a song to everyone, more directed at the bride, and the bride and bridesmaids also got up on stage and sang to everyone. This was a surprising and unique touch. We were extremely happy with everything overall.
SPECTRUMperformed at our wedding and they were AMAZING. They are talented, professional, and fun! They kept the dance floor packed with their energy and charisma, and also served as a classy MC for announcements and schedule flow. We could feel that they were happy to celebrate our wedding with us and it created such a special, positive vibe — cheesy but true! Countless guests commented on how wonderful the band was, and many were in disbelief that it was a band and not a CD of the actual artist playing because the quality was so superb! This is the first review I’ve ever posted on WeddingWire — that’s how good they are. : )

I cannot recommend the band SPECTRUM enough. I was a bride who strongly considered a dj because I wanted very current music at my reception, in addition to all the classics.SPECTRUM learned no fewer than 6 new songs at my specific request and performed them BETTER than the original acts. The band was lively, engaged, talented, professional, and hit all the right notes (pun intended). You will not be disappointed.

As event professionals for more than 2o years, when we wanted to re-write the how-to-wedding book, we went to SPECTRUM to help write our story. They played us into our ceremony, aced our first dance and even wrote us a custom song that we will treasure forever. To Ben, George, Meredith, Chet and Jonathan, there are simply no words to express our sincere appreciation for making our wedding night the greatest ever!
