Mike Rudd’s Spectrum seems to have been around forever and is considered by some to be an Australian rock music institution. However, since 1969 Spectrum has undergone the regulation number of incarnations and personnel changes, to the point that bassist Bill Putt’s unexpected death four years ago left singer-songwriter and Spectrum’s founder Mike Rudd the last-remaining constant. Early on Spectrum garnered critical attention as a prog rock outfit, but Rudd has always refused to be constrained by expectations and his musical manifesto remains steadfastly eclectic. The appearance of Spectrum’s chirpy alter ego The Indelible Murtceps in the early ‘70s and the later emergence of the mercurial Ariel might’ve shifted people’s preconceptions about Rudd’s musical intentions. Then there were the other bands steered by Rudd and Putt through the latter part of the 20th Century, Mike Rudd & The Heaters and WHY for instance, but Rudd returned to the Spectrum brand in the late ‘90s to navigate the band’s way into the 21st Century. What Spectrum now represents is the sum of all those forty-eight years’ experience. Today Spectrum plays the quirky material from the original Spectrum.
Spectrum has been a regular participant at the Marysville Jazz & Blues Weekend since its inception and it's been a highlight of our schedule ever since. It's a family orientated festival with just the right mix of entertainment featuring outstanding Australian exponents of both Jazz and Blues without being pedantic about definitions.
