Formed in mid 1993, the band performed a variety of material with the emphasis on dance and rap music. Their repertoire was mostly original but included a range of well known covers.
During 1993 the band performed at Banjos, The Carlton Club, The Central Club and at a number of private functions. They also made a video of their song “I’m Free” that was played on ABC’s “Rage”.

Since that time there have been a couple of Spellbound reunion performances (under different names), but the last time that all of the band played together was New Yera's Eve 1995/96.
Three of the members played an acoustic set as "Look This
Way" at the Doncaster Hotel in October 2005 supporting "Frostbyte", a band
that featured another member of Spellbound, as well as the director of the
"I'm Free" video.
Terence Bowen: (Bass) had studied piano, bass and drums. He composed and had previously played in a number of bands.
Cecilia Rogers: (Keyboards & Vocals) was classically trained in piano. She had performed in bands of varying musical styles and contributed to song arrangements.
Sandra Shepherd: (Vocals and keyboards) had several years experience singing in amateur musicals and light operas, and continued to take regular singing and piano lessons.
Clive Richard Weeks : (Guitar & Vocals) took up guitar after learning flute and drums. He has performed in bands, playing both guitar and keyboards, and is was the main songwriter of Spellbound.
