A Helping Hand, Supporting Partners of Lost Veterans are pleased to announce the addition of Spectrum (Australian Rock Legends) to our line-up for Helping Hand Rock on 14th November 2020

Spectrum is one our favourite Australian bands. During their brief but illustrious career Spectrum were in the vanguard of progressive rock in Australia, and they left a legacy of innovative and imaginative music.

The central figure in Spectrum was singer/songwriter/guitarist Mike Rudd, one of the many outstanding expatriate NZ performers who have contributed so much to the Australian music scene. Mike arrived in Australia in 1966 as rhythm guitarist for the NZ group Chants R&B.

TramWreck

TramWreck is a band that captures the moment when rock met the blues & blues went upbeat. Classic R&B like the Stones, Yardbirds & other left field bands. Original songs written in that genre. What a recipe for a great night.

TramWreck captures the era when ROCK collided with the BLUES giving birth to classic beat bands such as the Stones, Yardbirds, Beatles, Them, Animals, Easybeats to name only a few. Add TramWreck originals written in the same genre and you're in for a howlin' night.

Drawing from the world of Blues, Country and Rock’n’Roll, but leaves tired old songs on the shelf! Imagine hearing ‘16 Tons’ followed by an invigorated version of a Johnny Winter classic. Throw in some Elvis, Rolling Stones and a couple of down and dirty TramWreck originals and everyone’s happy!.....oh, did I mention Johnny Cash?
