Following their 2008 maiden tour through North America and an unprecedented performance at the United Nations for International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Australian indie rockers Rudely Interrupted return this summer with a hefty tour schedule spanning across the East Coast and Canada.
Rory (23), Sam (25), Marcus (30), Constance (46), Josh (23), and Rohan (38), make up what has become one of Australia's most celebrated bands – Rudely Interrupted. Five out of six band members share a range of both physical and intellectual disabilities (Blindness, Deafness, Aspergers, Autism and Down Syndrome) but most importantly, a common interest in self-expression through music. In addition to forming the band, guitarist and backing vocalist Rohan Brooks leads the music-therapy program in Melbourne that helps people of all ages with intellectual disabilities.
Rudely Interrupted is neither a novelty act nor a cover band but rather an inspiringly brave and talented group of musicians that play uplifting indie pop laced with a compelling, human-interest story. To hear their sound, click here.
