After twelve years of providing ceilidhs in many parts of the country and especially the East Midlands, the name of Bograt will be seen no more! Founder member Gavin Petz has moved on to work in other musical fields as has front musician Pete Shaw and bassist Lorna Stockdale. Our thanks go to all the other fine musicians who, over the years, have graced the Bograt line-up.

Drummer Chris Petz, caller Lesley Prue and sound & lights engineer Colin Goodall joined forces with Kim & Phil Biggs and Mark Addison, formerly of Akmed's Camel and played for many dances around Lincolnshire and further afield.

In 2009 Chris Petz left the band and was replaced by drummer Jim Young (ex Akmed's Camel). Now with former Akmed's Camel members Mark, Phil, Kim and Jim together again it was decided to reform Akmed's Camel and Byard's Leap who took the name from a Lincolnshire legend, too joined the ranks of Lincolnshire legends!
