Before Ollie turned to playing lead guitar, he was a member of the legendary Phillip Walker Blues Band both from 1962 through 1965 and 1987 through 1989. In the interim years he toured the States as the bass player for various groups. A highlight of this time period was accompaning the Phillip Walker Band on their 1989 European tour. Ollie has also toured in Japan and looks forward to returning again in the future. Oklahoma Ollie has now begun a new chapter in his career. Having formed his own group,the “Blues Stand Band”, he brings together all of his experience and showmanship to the stage. His CD “Good Man Around” is a collection of original songs that displays Ollie’s talents while singing and playing lead and bass guitar using a variety of blues stylings. Ollie performs many live events including clubs, festivals, fundraisers and private parties.
