The band name would eventually be changed to “Blue Spectrum” due to the “Spectrum” name itself being so prevalent and “Blue” being Zayne’s favorite color. The new name also brought new dimensions.
A local blues jam introduced keyboardist, Amelia Rose, to the band. And the smooth vocalist, “Uncle Al” Jefferson, took over at bass. The Blue Spectrum family expanded to include saxophonist extraordinaire, Clifford Marsh and jazz percussionist, Hosea Hooks, who brought years of band leadership and impeccable musical skills. But even with the changes, the message remained the same.
Together they share a deep love of creating and performing music and living the impassioned motto of Blue Spectrum: “Life is not to be viewed through the single lens of a diagnosis but to be lived through the Spectrum of potential, promise and purpose”
