The Graham Guest Band is a new version of a timeless sound. This version of the band came about out of the transformative time of the great pandemic.

    8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

As the world came back to life in 2022, Graham decided to gather together the very best band members that he had played with in the before times.

Together they decided to reshape their musical identities both individually and collectively. Happy to be together, whole and alive; The Graham Guest Band is Graham Guest on vocal and piano, Chris Grapel on Bass, J.J. Lisk on drums, Rooster Davis on organ and the godfather of Edmonton blues Rodger Stanley on Guitar. Their combined resumes are too long to list so the new resume starts here. Too experienced to be new and too hip to be categorized; this music is straight up and full of passion.

Over the winter of 2022/2023 they rehearsed and prepared material which they then brought to star producer Lane Allen at Homestead Recorders in Edmonton who agreed to record them. Together they decided to record exclusively on reel to reel tape and thus was born their debut recording “Tragic Magic”. It’s full of love, despair, honesty and hope. Their first single “The Last Time I left New Orleans” is in fact their first soundcheck at their first recording session. Caught by the engineers as they were still adjusting levels; everything was recorded together “live off the floor”.

Blues superstar Sue Foley says of Graham “I’ve always been amazed at what a natural he is. He is not just a Canadian treasure, he’s a true blues treasure. ”

The Graham Guest Band is the real deal.
