In 1975 Beaver was formed and run by Andrew Hunt and Dave Graham . Andrew sadly passed away in 2002. The original band had many musicians come and go including Deidre Cartwright (BBC's Rock School) Dave Graham ( Fisher z ), Kevin Powell (Cockney Rebel) Sledgehammers Ken Revell and loads more including John and Clint. In 1979 the band folded.
Clint went on to play Bass Guitar with Sledgehammer , nicknamed Killer Clint apparently because he had a shark on his t shirt. Support bands include Darts,UFO. Sledgehammer also shared the stage with, Def Leppard, Motorhead and many more. JR did depping for bands including The New Vaudeville Band.
Beaver have now been back in business since 1999 playing Rock 'n' Blues and still using some of their original material, totaling more than 1,000 gigs.
The Band are their main preference but are also available as a duo.
