Reviews

Spectrum have been one of the most popular “core” bands at Coopers Creek Vineyard’s annual Summer Sunday Jazz festivals. Now into their 2nd decade of performing there, the lively musicality of the band, featuring Maria’s strong vocal lead along with good song selection, has ensured a loyal following of music and wine lovers.

UXBRIDGE Arts and Culture has worked with Spectrum on a number of occasions and at every turn their professionalism and passion is clear from the outset, They deliver a performance full of passion and energy with a vast repertoire blending their own unique groove. We are always happy to host a concert with them and look forward to working with them again.

Over the last few years I have had the privilege of being able to book Spectrum to perform at the Auckland Jazz and Blues Club, and for private functions. Each time, they have present a programme of very suitable material for that particular audience.

Spectrum were a fantastic addition to the Veuve Clicquot Marquee at the Clevedon Polo. The theme of the day was the 1950s, Retro Chic and the Trio helped bring this theme to life. The music was upbeat and they sounded fantastic! Guests were loving the music & the chill vibes and they were excellent to work with on the day! I would absolutely recommend Spectrum to other clients & friends and would happily work with them again.

Bex Gower | Dark Horse

We were absolutely blown away by Spectrum. They were the real deal - so professional, flexible, obliging and incredibly talented. Our guests were constantly asking us how we found them through the evening. We would definitely recommend Spectrum for any event. Their music complimented our wedding day so perfectly, there’s just nothing like live jazz music from a band that are truly so passionate!
