Graham Handy


Started my first group in the early 60's It was called The Mark V Played and was initially influenced by all the music from the late 50' and early 60's revaluation.

I Got interested in soul music and played all around the country with the soul band "the Gravy Train" During that time the band played on the same shows which featured many of the famous 60's artists and bands both British and American. Had a spell as cabaret singer before going to the continent with a progressive band called The Velvett Fogg.

The Fogg played on the continent for about 12 months performing at the Star Clubs in Hamburg and Nuremburg, The Story Ville clubs in Frankfurt and Cologne the PN club Munich, The Harshen is Zurich and many others.

On occasions the fogg would take breaks in England during those breaks they frequently played at the Plaza, Cavern and Penthouse clubs in Birmingham. I also had a couple of years singing with a dance band.

My interests in music are pretty varied however the artists who perform Soul, Blues, the whole spectrum of rock 'n' roll and standards are my influences If the music is good I will listen to it.
