Uncle Ugly was formed in the basement of a Center St. house in Marquette, MI in early September way back in 1988. You could smell the pasties cooking next door *hint*

From a few short practices, the gigs started. And haven't stopped.

The core of the band has remained together, though there have been many former members that have contributed to its success both live and in the studio. Many tours, many miles and more than a few songs were heard on the radio during this bands ongoing career.
