Although Boneyard Convention never recorded, they were an important band from whom Martin Winch emerged. He was a very talented guitarist. The band played at the established Auckland venues like the Galaxie, Surfside and Shoreline during 1965 and 1966.

Playing mainly British R&B covers, they competed in the 1966 Battle of the Bands contest, but were unplaced. After that the group disbanded, with Thorogood joining the Rogues for a short stint as vocalist, before rejoining Winch and Inglis to form a new band called Sylvester Winch Style in early 1967.
