Bride’s review

If I could do my wedding again, Sonic Spectrum is the first thing I would book. All I wanted was to dance at my wedding and people were dancing all night long. My guest didn’t want to leave the dance floor because they were that good. They have such a wide range of music and his voice can change to sound like the real artist of the song. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you want a FUN wedding!

“Sonic Spectrum rocked it out for us at Rocktoberfest 2015. Not only did we love the music but they were awesome to work with. The crowd only had great things to say as well. I would give them 10 stars on a five star scale!!!”

“Sonic Spectrum played at our wedding this past May. May 2nd to be exact. They were AWESOME! I cannot tell you how many people raved about them. And some guests even got their card. Not to mention, they are soooo thoughtful! They sent us a thank you card with our set-list in it as a sweet, sweet momento. I’m excited to make our scrapbook as that will be a well-cherished item. What else can I say?! They are on it! They play what you ask for and play to the crowd. No worrying necessary!! They are also affordable…they could easily charge triple what they do now, so book them now if you are making plans for next year!!! We LOVEDDDD SONIC SPECTRUM!!”

Groom’s review

“Ok… here’s the thing -I want to do my wedding over again…as in I want that experience again and, honestly, it is due in large part to these guys. It was a no-brainer when I selected a band for my wedding in Wilmington..I had followed this band since the days when they had gone by a different name (two actually -that’s how much they played and how much music they had in them). They paid their dues just like all the good bands that eventually rise to the top -by playing in local bars and restaurants, first in Wilmington and then, once word spread, up and down the NC coast, as far as I can tell. During those years they NEVER disappointed and only seemed to get better, developing a soulfulness and an ability to connect with an audience that comes only from years of sloggin’ it out in the musical trenches, so to speak. It is something I guarantee a lot of the other bands on this list DO NOT HAVE! Way before the time my wedding rolled around they had become a well-oiled machine in peak form. What I had been a little unsure of was how well they had made the transition to WEDDING band (though they still do the bar circuit I believe) Would they be able to cater to such a wider demographic? Would they know when/how to slow it down for the older folk? Would they be able to then still deliver the goods for the “rock n’ roll” types ( like myself and my wife) in attendance. Let me just say….they did it all. It was a perfect blend and there was not a SINGLE person that did not have an ABSOLUTE blast at my wedding. MY own father (a music lover) said it was THE BEST wedding he has ever been to in his entire life. Again, it has much to do with the total party that these guys were able to bring. It has not only to do with the ability these guys have to feel out their audience and gauge them so effectively, it also is a result of their WIDE range of musical genres that they can pull from. And trust me -they nail EVERY SINGLE ONE! When they do a Prince song -close your eyes and you will swear Prince is there on stage….What’s crazy is, in the next breath you can do the same thing weather it’s The Police, The Doobie Brothers, Michael Jackson, Elvis, Led Zeppelin, Madonna…even Ozzy Osbourne or Pantera (if you decide to go that route.) These guys are the consummate musicians… The word “virtuoso” gets thrown around a lot these days… In this case it ABSOLUTELY applies (singer is incredible, drummer top notch…guitarist is blistering…bass guy is just fun to watch -he’s that good…) And they could be snotty about it or be “too cool for school” . Nope..they are the humblest, most down-to-earth, friendly guys you ever want to meet, as well as true and courteous professionals from start to finish. There are all these little touches they add -too numerous to mention -you’ll see. At any rate, I literally could write all day about them (and it might appear as though I have), but I will leave with three final thoughts to sum up… They made my wedding truly one for the ages….They DO NOT disappoint…They deliver in EVERY respect.”

Bride and Groom’s review

“We have rocked out with Sonic Spectrum all over Wilmington, but they kicked it up to the next level for our wedding!! I had at least a dozen guests ask me how we were able to book such a rockin band for our wedding! Bar-none, they were the best band I have ever seen at a wedding. Not only did they rock the live show, but they kept the energy up djing between sets. They were also able to MC and provide the music for the ceremony! These guys were an amazing group to work with and I highly suggest booking them for your wedding asap before someone else steals your date!! Rock on fellas!!”

Bride’s review

The Sonic Spectrum Band (formerly The Millenia Funk’n Band) is without a doubt, the BEST!!! We knew we wanted a band for our reception. We did some research but with most bands, they specialize in one genre and we wanted all of our guests to feel like they were involved. This band is not like most bands at all!!! They do a fantastic mix of oldies, 90’s, classic rock and great dance music. When we contacted them, we got a response right away. Ben is a great contact person for the band and whenever I had any questions at all, he was phenomenal at getting back with me quickly. All of the guys are very professional, super nice and know how to keep the party up and going. We WILL be staying in touch with the band and can’t wait to hear them play again. Whenever we have another party/event/function, they will be our only band of choice! Now we just have to find an excuse to have a party! Book them NOW because you won’t regret it!!!!

Bride’s review

“I got married about 3 months ago and EVERYONE that attended the wedding is still talking about this band. They played everything you want to hear, from Journey to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Beach Music to Outkast and Blurred lines. They were in constant communication with me to get a feel for my preferences for the big day. They are also great at reading the crowd and playing things that everyone will enjoy. They keep everyone on the dance floor and having a great time. If you want a memorable, fun wedding – this band will make that happen. We have people asking us to get married again just so they can come and dance to the band—seriously! 

Not only are they a VERY talented group of guys, but they are very sweet, helpful and great to work with. Planning wedding music and timing can be stressful. They offered suggestions and timed everything flawlessly.

The band you choose sets the mood of the whole wedding. I was soooo happy we chose these guys because they did not disappoint. I am smiling right now as I write this review because we had THE BEST time dancing the night away to these guys-I want to get married again to dance to the band—seriously!”

Bride’s review

Sonic Spectrum played at my outdoor wedding reception in April. They were extremely professional and all of my guests LOVED the music! My husband and I can’t wait to have another gathering of friends in the near future so we can hire this band once again. Thanks, Sonic Spectrum, for making our wedding day the best day ever!

Studio owner/engineer’s review

“I think Sonic Spectrum is an all around outstanding group of musicians on the stage and in the studio. The band brings their professional attitude, performance, and sense of fellowship to any endeavor they decide to take on. A true pleasure working with this extremely talented group of musicians.

My favorite aspect while recording the band was absolutely the sense of humor and total fun they brought to the table while retaining a professional attitude in what could have easily been a stressful environment in the studio.”
