Time / Date

The Ollie West Band creates new genre, blending pop/fusion recognised by the likes of Bill Laurance and Dean Friedman.
Starting 5 years ago with a 14 year old Ollie West writing songs at his piano, the band keep building from strength to strength and continue to develop their success with innovative ideas, memorable performances and, best of all, great soulful music.
Inspired by artists such as Billy Joel, Bruce Hornsby, Sting and Prince, Ollie’s song writing consistently blends pop, jazz and classical genres and now carries a distinctive style of piano based writing with catchy melodies and intriguing harmonies.
For their wall2wall performance they are complete with their regular string quartet, promising a great start to the Saturday w2w programme.
