When you combine his unique playing style with the current line-up, featuring some of Toowoomba's and region's finest musicians, you get the blues band from hell. Graham describes this as the most exciting combination of musicians he has worked with.

They play Chicago and Texas style blues. Front man, “Ugly Graham” has 26 years of playing experience and rated in the top echelon of blues harp players worldwide by his US counterparts.

Bob Adams, Bass, has been the band’s bass man for around fifteen years. He provides the band with the driving style that gives the band a tight backline.
