Graham started out playing the drums at the age of 13 and joined his first 'club' band at the age of 14. After a spell of singing and drumming in bands he became a frustrated frontman and left the drum seat behind to become the vocalist, fronting his first band at 22.
Various bands followed, which included time living in Nottingham and West Germany and playing for the Armed Forces. Graham moved back to Leeds in 1989 and has continued to play the 'Club Scene' in various guises up to and including present day.
In 2014 and in a change of direction, Graham went back to his 'Live Band' where he fronts 'Black Tiger' a Classic Rock Band which continues to rock the 'Pub Scene' with their own unique blend of classic rock anthems.

Pete first picked up a bass at the age of 14, inspired by the likes of Bad Company & Led Zeppelin, playing his first gig when he was just 16 years old. Not too long after that he moved down to his native London, playing with a variety of bands in both the capital and the North. Eventually he headed back North full time, joining a band called 'Meanstreak' and playing up and down the country on the 1980's rock club circuit.
Fast forward several years and Pete ended up doing a stint playing the clubs and festivals on the national blues circuit with the 'Paddy Maguire Band' and later 'Rhythm Zoo'. He was also regularly gigging with a number of local rock bands including 'Spank The Monkey' and 'Balls To The Wall' amongst many others and eventually crossing paths with Graham and Bob in 'Black Tiger'. This lead to an intriguing invitation to join the Storyteller's Night project.
Bob started playing the drums at the age of 17 when after exhaustive pressure from his brother, he auditioned for his first band 'Under Lock & Key' whilst their existing drummer went to the toilet. 'Under Lock & Key' played a mixture of covers and original material and quickly gained a good reputation touring the UK, supporting a variety of big name bands and featuring on the BBC Radio One Rock Show. When 'Under Lock & Key' eventually split, Bob continued to play in various 'Pub' bands including lengthy spells with 'Redhouse', 'Rockweiler' and 'Roadkill' before joining Graham in founding 'Black Tiger' in 2014.
Being heavily influenced by Magnum drummer 'Mickey Barker', Storyteller's Night sees a natural step forward in Bob's playing career.
