Grady Gaines

Still doing it today at 85 years young, tenor sax hurricane Grady Gaines was born in Waskom, Texas in 1934. In Houston, he performed as a session musician for Peacock records. In 1955, he joined and led Little Richard's band, The Upsetters, and recorded sax solos on Richard's "Keep A Knockin" and "Ooh! My Soul". When Richard retired in 1957, Grady and the Upsetters provided backing on concerts and tours for Dee Clark, Little Willie John, Sam Cooke, James Brown, Jackie Wilson, and Joe Tex. His explosive saxophone is highlighted on Episode 5 of Mambo Sauce. Grady recorded two albums on Black Top Records: 1988’s Full Gain and 1992's Horn Of Plenty. You can get current info at
