Spectrum Big Band

Spectrum Big Band is a first class, 20-piece big band, playing music across a wide range of styles and genres, including big band favourites, jazz, swing, latin and rock. 

Part of Canberra City Band Inc, Spectrum Big Band is among Canberra’s oldest and best non-professional big bands. First established in the 1980s as Canberra City Big Band, Spectrum Big Band began in its current form in 1997 and performs regularly around Canberra and its surrounds at corporate functions, jazz festivals, community events and private parties. The band regularly combines with Jumptown Swing and Swing Katz dancers to bring the vintage feel of the 1930s and 40s to its performances. 

Spectrum Big Band is available for private, corporate, community and charity events. As a not-for-profit organisation, all proceeds go towards ensuring Canberra City Band Inc. can continue to provide high quality musical performance and development opportunities for Canberrans.
