Since that time Graham
has played in many different contexts such as "western
swing" (The Baylor Brothers), "country"
(various artists, including Reg Lindsay, Keith Glass, Anne
Kirkpatrick, Ian B. MacLeod and the Rockabilly Express),
original (Mental as Anything, Fifty Million Beers) "jazz"
(Ian Date, George Washingmachine, Roger Janes and Tom Baker),
R&B (Donny Hop & the Kings of Bop) and Hawaiian
(Hoola). He has also recorded with various bands and artists
including The Welcome Matt, Knievel, Alan Caswell, Dave
Steel, Jason Walker & Karl Broadie. His playing can
be heard on the movie Danny Deckchair (2003). He also recently
recorded with WA pop band “Little Birdy”.
Jenny Griffith is a singer/guitarist/ukulele player and has worked with
the following bands: Juke Joint Ramblers, Way out West,
Faye La Sweet, Jazz West, Hoola and Out of Nowhere. Along
with Graham she shares a love for nice tunes which allow
dynamics and nuance as is found with jazz standards and
the Hawaiian music. Grabbed for her strong rhythm playing,
Jenny’s recent projects include playing banjo-ette
in a Dixieland band.
is the name of Graham & Jenny’s Hawaiian combo
and “Out of Nowhere” is the name of their other
band which plays standards and some choice country tunes.
Another band, “Jazz West”, concentrates on country,
cowboy and western swing tunes with some standards thrown
in for good measure. Their association has seen them do
corporate work for Amex, McPhee Transport and Foxtel, among
many others. They even played at the 1996 Homebake festival
as well as playing a support in 2001 for the aria award
winning band “The Avalanches”. In 1999 they
took their music to a convention in Hawaii.
that Graham and Jenny share is far too extensive to put
onto a small Web Page, so the best thing that we can suggest
is to book into the Convention and come, see and enjoy their
musical talents, from Hawaiian to Country to Jazz.
In June 2012 Graham was inducted into the Steel Guitar Hall of Fame which really thrilled him. What an honour!
