Olympic Sounds Feat: Paul Greene & Johnny Rudge

In the week leading up to the Paris Olympic Games, two Australian Olympic athletes will transcend the sporting arena to perform at Cronulla’s Brass Monkey on Saturday 20 July.

Paul Greene competed in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics in the 400m and is a full-time professional musician. The singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has released nine albums and has been an ARIA finalist for Best Blues and Roots Album. He performed with the Australian band Ghostwriters with drummer Rob Hirst (Midnight Oil) and bassist Rick Grossman (ex-Hoodoo Gurus) and fronted 80’s rock icons Spy v Spy. Paul has recently released a new single, ‘Bring You My Love’.

Peter Hadfield represented Australia in the Decathlon at the 1980 Moscow and 1984 Los Angeles Games and has been a media commentator at seven Olympics.

After studying guitar with renowned jazz guitarist George Golla throughout his teens, he ‘kept the guitar in its case’ during his athletic career but renewed the passion and is now the guitarist in the Johnny Rudge Band.

Johnny Rudge is an unlikely amalgamation of an Olympic athlete, a chemistry academic, a classic motorcycle connoisseur and a genius drummer, playing an eclectic mix of jazz and blues, from Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Eric Clapton, Pat Metheney, The Beatles and Santana, which makes it a band that covers a bit of something for everyone.

Join a host of other Australian Olympians in the audience at the Brass Monkey for this unique performance.
