In 1984 guitarist Jan Akesson and singer Peter Grundstrom got to know each other after a mutual concert. Jan played guitar in a band called Ravage and Peter was a singer in a band called Whitelight. Their meeting led to the conclusion of Jans' work with his band and he became a new member in Whitelight in that very year. However, in 1987 Jan decided to leave Whitelight and went his own way. Peter stayed in Whitelight but Jan wasn't replaced. Instead the name of the band was changed to Kee Avenue.
