Johannes Grames
- Guitar, BG Vocals
Previous groups - Russell Jackson, Nancy Weisler, The J.G. Quartet
The eldest brother, started his musical life playing the cello at age 6 and moving on to the double bass at age 8. Trumpet and electric bass followed only to see Johannes settling on electric guitar after seeing a Van Halen concert. Has a thing for chess.
Dinos Grames - Bass
Previous groups - Velvet, The Spirit Merchants
Dinos was another child prodigy, taking up the cello at an early age, until he switched to bass at age thirteen. Anything that moves the heart and feet is of interest to Dinos and he is as devoted to his children as he is to music.

Randall started playing drums as a child but used to sneak into the basement to play his brother's piano. He is a very sought after session player in Vancouver and has appeared on over 40 CDs to date. Randall, like Johannes, also has a thing for chess.
