It goes without saying that as an experienced dep Graham has large repertoire of songs and is constantly learning new material. Obviously charts are welcome as are mp3's if you're running to track. If it's a really last minute affair then fear not, Graham is expert at picking things up on the fly.

Gear

Graham uses Kiesel and Carvin guitars, Bogner amps and can draw upon an extensive collection of pedals to make up his board. He strives to produce the correct sound for the song as it is on the record or when not appropriate something that fits in with the arrangement. 

If your band runs a 'quiet' stage then Graham also has an Axe-Fx rig and IEM's ready to patch directly into your PA and monitoring system.

 

Stagecraft

Having done everything from being a long haired metaller rocking out in front 10,000 strong audiences to sitting in the corner of a restaurant providing dinner jazz Graham is happy to give any degree of onstage presence. The same goes for his musical performance. Laid back, in the pocket? Fine. Full on shredding? Lovely. None of it's a problem but please be clear about what you require in this regard. Bands that suffer from a 'diffuse' management structure often issue contradictory instructions causing unnecessary stress on the gig.
