Graham Curtis - Drums, Backing Vocals

Joined the Band


Key Facts 

Graham joined the band at its inception in 1989. Formed by legendary local music hero Mike Davis, the band was very different in those days. Delving Deep into Mikes love of Deep South Boogie and Status Quo, three Chords played loud was our motto. Blues became more of an influence with the introduction of the local Blues King John Wines on lead guitar and over the years with many line ups, the band has evolved dramatically into the party animal it is today. Before JAK THE LAD Graham was a member of two local own material bands " The Magnetics" and " The Escape Committee" the former cutting two tracks onto a compilation album " Shots in the Dark"..highly sought after by post punk vinyl junkies. Graham's main role in the band is to keep the thing together and stop Mossy trying to get us to do some Sinatra.
