The five-piece band consists of a drummer, bassist, guitarist, keyboardist and saxophonist, with all members of the group singing. The band play 1950s rock and roll and 1960s rhythm and blues with a modern twist covering various artists including Ray Charles, Dale Hawkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Solomon Burke, The Coasters and Muddy Waters. In 2008, the band were sent a letter by Paul McCartney inviting them to his Liverpool gig after he heard their music. Later that year, they supported Bombay Bicycle Club in Edinburgh and in 2010 they performed with Kitty Daisy & Lewis to a sold-out crowd. 
After all meeting at school, the group began performing around Scotland, building up a following. What followed has been national radio plays on XFM Scotland (now rebranded as Galaxy Scotland) and BBC Radio Scotland and articles have appeared in The List, Edinburgh Festival Magazine, Edinburgh Evening News, The Scotsman and The Skinny. In 2007 and 2008, The Fabulous Hurricanes played a string of shows most notably supporting Neils Children and Bombay Bicycle Club, and they were voted number 4 on the list of 'Scotland's Best Unsigned Bands' by The Scotsman.
