Father of the Bride’s Review

I could not have been more pleased with your music! My daughter wanted great sound and someone who could play just about anything and keep people dancing until the wedding reception was totally over. Sonic Spectrum gets our family’s highest recommendation. You guys are awesome!

I highly recommend Sonic Spectrum! They are such a talented group of true professionals who made our daughter’s wedding reception at Bald Head Island a night none of us will ever forget!  Ben was great to work with and quick to respond. Even with the challenges of getting the band and instruments by ferry to the island, they were very affordable. All the guests raved about them, and their wide range of musical genres kept everyone on the dance floor until the last minute! Sonic Spectrum is truly amazing!!

Bride’s Review

We absolutely loved the band and can’t thank you enough for all the effort you put into the night. The whole night was magical.  Finding the perfect band was so important to me and you all knocked it out of the park.  Everyone had the best time and you were great at incorporating the special elements I wanted for the wedding.  I only plan on getting married once so I’ll have to find another excuse to use the band again because you all were the best!

Thanks again we had the time of our lives!

BEST BAND EVER!!!  When my daughter and her fiancé told me they picked the band they wanted for their wedding reception, I said “I’m not writing the check until I hear them!”  We went the hear them at Hot Fish Club and I wrote the check after the first song!  This is the most versatile band I’ve ever heard.  They play songs that everybody knows and want to dance to, and the crowd loves them!  Nobody wanted the reception to end!  People that don’t even dance, DANCED!!

They were so professional and accommodating with every request we had, and after talking with Benjamin about details before hand, I did not worry about one thing!  He made sure every request was met and went above and beyond to make it as FUN for the bride and groom and all of their guests!!!  I was able to truly enjoy my daughter’s special day without worrying about anything!

On a scale of 1-5 stars, I would give them 10!  A party isn’t a party without SONIC SPECTRUM!!

The band was outstanding. The entire wedding party and all the guest thought the band was the hit of the evening. Sonic Spectrum was professional, dependable, and played a wide variety of music that all ages enjoyed. I would highly recommend the band for any social activity.

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!!”
