WHO - FEATURED ARTIST

Oklahoma Ollie (OKO)


OKO welcomes all Blues Fans & Players to join the fun on Thursday October 1 at Barbara Morrison Performing Arts Center located in Leimert Park in Los Angeles.

Big City Blues Magazine
“Lowell Fulsom’s main man is still kicking out the original blues with a party beat showing us that older is wiser, better and, in OKO’s case…sexier!”

Highlights are many for bluesman Oklahoma Ollie (OKO) over his 50+ year music career. Former bass player with legends Lowell Fulsom, Phillip Walker and many more worldwide blues titans including Etta James, OKO has a lifetime of experience to draw from as a performer and songwriter. OKO now plays lead guitar and fronts his own Blues Stand Band. The recent release, OKO NOW & Then, is a compilation of OKO authored songs that will delight all long-time & new fans and includes the single "It Ain't Me"

Oklahoma Ollie performs many live events including clubs, festivals, fundraisers and private parties playing a mix of originals and favorite standards. OKO performs his signature “behind-the-back” exclusive lead guitar trick which must be seen in person.
