Welcome to the Hard Graft Band web site!

We're a classic rock and blues band at heart, with a touch of funk and occasionally indie/alternative thrown in for good measure. You can take a look at the songs that we play (as well as future material) on the set list page.

Based in the West Midlands (UK), you can contact us for bookings, for further information refer to our biography.

We had Hard Graft down at Handsworth Rugby Club last night , The guys rocked the whole place. , their set list was brilliant , they got the whole place dancing even crowd surfing at times . The sound was spot on, very talented young musicians, and great vocals from the young singer. They even finished the set with our club song which was a great touch.
We can’t wait for you to come back again
