Before teaming up with Little Richard's Upsetters, Grady Gaines worked as a session saxophone player for Don Robey's Duke/Peacock Records. His solos can be heard for instance on "Dirty Work At The Crossroads" / "You Got Money" (Peacock 1607, 1953) by Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, "Your Kind Of Love" (Duke 130, 1954) by Earl Forest, and "Hello Maria" / "Pack Fair And Square" (Peacock 1666, 1956) by Big Walter Price. The original Upsetters, pianist-tenor saxophonist Wilbert Smith (a.k.a. Lee Diamond), tenor-saxophonist Danny Carmichael, guitarist Thomas Harwell, pianist Luke Gonder, bassist Jimmy Rice, and drummer Charles Connors had been regular members of Little Richard's band already since 1954. Most of them appear (along with Penniman himself) on Christine Kittrell's 1954 recordings "Lord, Have Mercy (I'm So Lonely)" (Republic 7096, 10/1954) and "Call His Name" (Republic 7109, 3/1955). When Gaines joined the group in 1956, the rest of line-up usually consisted of Clifford Burks, Wilbert Smith, Samuel Parker Jr. on saxophones, Nathaniel Douglas on guitar, Olsie Robinson on bass, and Charles Connors on drums.

During the Little Star sessions in c. 1960, The Upsetters were: Little Richard:vcl/pno, Joe Hughes:gtr, Milton Hopkins:gtr, Grady Gaines:sax, Richard Roy:sax, Clifford Burks:sax, Olsie Robinson:bs, and possibly Emile Russell:dms.

Also the original drummer Charles Connor re-formed his own Upsetters in 1983. Connors' band consisted of white musicians including Robert Leslie, David Haskin, and a few others. Grady Gaines hasn't worked with this line-up.

In addition, Grady Gaines' band accompanies Sam Cooke on his RCA recordings 1960-64, including "Bring It On Home", "Twisting The Night Away".

Note: According to Dik de Heer (in his e-mail dated January 8th, 2010): "The Larry Birdsong single [If You Don't Want Me No More / I'm Pleading Just For You, issued on Vee-Jay VJ 254 in 1957] was recorded with Cosimo Matassa's studio band - you can hear it, this is not the Upsetters sound, but a typical New Orleans recording."
