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.”

Fan’s review

“I’ve been going to see this band perform at various venues and festivals for about 3.5 years now and it’s always a great time- Great mix of all genres of fun music, and a talented group of musicians with tunes that everyone can enjoy. They constantly update their set list with new songs as well as continuing to rock out everyone’s classic favorites. Fantastic show every time put on by a great group of guys whose main objective is for you to have a rockin’ good time!”

Groom & private party client’s review

“I hired the band to play my 30th birthday and they totally blew my guests and friends away with their musicianship and talent- so much so that every time I ran into someone from the party they demanded for me to hire them for my wedding. The band is professional, extremely gifted and knows how to get the party on the dance floor. My fiancé and I couldn’t be happier with our decision.”

WECT Sales Promotions Director’s review (2010)

“In 2010, we secured local favorite, Millenia Funk’n, as part of our Sounds of Summer Concert Series line-up at Greenfield Lake Amphitheatre. I have seen Millenia Funk’n perform many times before, so this was a wonderful treat for WECT and our concert attendees. The band always brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to their performances, and the concert at Greenfield Lake was no exception.

The age of our viewers is skewed to an older demographic (45 years and older) and not typical of the downtown Wilmington bar scene, so I was pleasantly surprised that they could adapt to this change, and to this audience so easily. The response from concert goers was overwhelmingly positive, and they had a wonderful time dancing, clapping, and singing along with the popular favorites from the early 60’s to present.

As Sales Promotions Director, it is my responsibility that the bands sign contracts, arrive in a timely manner for sound checks, play professionally, responsibly for a family-friendly venue, and fulfill all other contractual obligations. Millenia Funk’n rose above the rest, and required no reminders or assistance from me.

I continue to attend Millenia Funk’n concerts today, and I am never disappointed with them. They will always continue to be a welcome performer for WECT and the Sounds of Summer Concert Series.”

Fan’s review

“Sonic Spectrum is the best live, local band I’ve ever seen. The styles of music that they play is broad enough to suit anyone listening. And while other bands try to throw in twists and mixes to make a song “their own”, Sonic Spectrum stays as true to the originally recorded sound as they possibly can, which is far more appreciated (by me) than having a classic rock anthem screwed up by someone who’s experimenting with style. In short, the band is a great way to spend a weekend evening at your favorite bar or club.”

Fan’s review

“Sonic Spectrum never disappoints when you see them in concert. The variety of music they play appeals to everyone of every age. They are very genuine musicians and enjoy performing for people. The band always brings the crowd into the mix and, when not on stage, makes it a point to thank people for attending their performances. That is something that you don’t see in many bands.

I have seen these guys many times and will continue to support them. Mike Lewis, lead vocals/keys, can sing anything you throw at him and his range is great. Jonathan Easterlin, guitar, can play like no other – simply amazing, and Benjamin Baldwin can tear a set of drums up!”
