They were soon joined by Wojciech Namaczyński (drums), Artur Laszczka (keyboard) and Ryszard Swaczek (vocals). The first gig took place in late autumn of 1983 and was warmly acclaimed by the audience, as well as the show in Dworek Białoprądnicki, where KGB has concerted together with The Cooks, another blues band from Kraków. A bit later Ryszard Swaczek quitted the band, and the function of vocalist was took over by Dariusz Wiśniewski and Artur Bazior.

In 1985, the band was admitted to the 5th edition of Rawa Blues Festival, which takes place every year in Spodek arena in Katowice, and was one of ten awarded bands. The group appeared on the festival twice again in the following years. In autumn 1985 saxophonist Tomasz Suchowiejko joined the band. At the end of 80s the band's activity was suspended. In 1998 KGB was reactivated on initiative of Paweł Małysiak.

The new lineup was helped by Jerzy Walasek (drums) and Robert Korzeniak (bass). Paweł Małysiak decided to play the guitar instead of bass. In 2001 Jarosław Sokół parted with the band and became manager of Tadeusz Pocieszyński's band named Bluesmobile. One year later the group recorded their first album "Czekam na okazję".

Soon after the release the band was quitted by Artur Laszczka, and in 2003 by Dariusz Wiśniewski, who started his own project. In 2007 Robert Korzeniak resigned from playing in the band, and was replaced by Leszek Kowal. On 6 October 2007, KGB played again on Rawa Blues Festival in Katowice, and due to being chosen by the audience as the winner of the small stage, they played on the main stage too. 20 October 2007 the sophomore album "Pomyśl dobrze" was released.
