Bandleader and singer Bjorklof founded the band with bass player Seppo Nuolikoski in 1991. After a few minor changes during the early days, the lineup has remained unaltered for almost 20 years. Initially an acoustic blues-rock cover band, they later went electric and started writing original material, with roots & blues music becoming their primary muse.
