I personally love a good story about humble beginnings and when it comes to Eastside Grammar, humble at best, is how you'd describe these talented working class men. From uni mates in a share-house bickering about the footy, to creative jam session buddies, Michael Crellin & Charlie Raby have come a long way since meeting back in 2015.
