Oliver is quickly becoming one of the most in-demand musicians in the Chicagoland area.

When you hire him, you're hiring a pianist who has experience playing in large-scale shows such as WICKED, THE COLOR PURPLE, RENT, and JERSEY BOYS to name a few. He has also played for many high-profile artists including Il Divo, Lorna Luft, Clint Holmes, and The Foundations.

Outside of the more "mainstream" entertainment world, Oliver has played the piano and organ for weddings, funerals, and other religious ceremonies for over a decade.

When playing for events outside of the theatre world, Oliver relies on his complete musical versatility to provide his clients with their exact needs. It isn't about being a flashy concert pianist or a serious jazz player (unless you request either of those); it is about making sure you are hearing the exact musical styles that you want to hear for your event.

Let Oliver use his piano skills and experience to create the perfect musical atmosphere for your situation. Whether you need someone capable to play for your special ceremony or a pianist to provide background music for your party or event, Oliver has the necessary repetoire of music for any situation:

WEDDINGS, FUNERALS, AND MEMORIAL SERVICES: Oliver is currently the organist/pianist, and music director at Trinity United Church of Christ in Deerfield, IL. He has held organist/pianist positions at churches ever since his junior year of high school. Oliver's experience in church settings makes him an ideal musician to add music to your religious ceremony. Whether you prefer traditional music, contemporary music, or something outside the "regular" realm of service music, Oliver is prepared to serve you.

PRIVATE PARTIES, HOLIDAY GATHERINGS, PERSONAL CELEBRATIONS, COCKTAIL MUSIC, AND OTHER GENERAL EVENTS: Oliver has experience in playing all types of settings. Holiday season? Let him use his hundreds of holiday songs to put your group in the right mood! Need some cocktail or dinner music? Perhaps some lighter music before the band takes over at your wedding reception? Oliver has an extensive catalogue of songs to keep the music going. Are you hosting a private party? Oliver's musical versatility makes him capable of adapting to any scenerio. Pop, classical, jazz, new-age, specific themes (all Disney music, movie music, love songs etc...) whatever your musical tastes are, Oliver can fulfill those tastes.

MUSICAL THEATRE: Oliver is most well-known in the Chicagoland area as a theatre musician and conductor. If you are looking for someone to either play or musical direct your theatrical production, Oliver has a VAST amount of experience. Please contact Oliver for a resume and to learn more about his theatre work if you are in need of these services.

PLAYING FOR CONCERT ARTISTS: Oliver has been fortunate enough to play for some bigger names in the concert world, including Il Divo, Lorna Luft, and The Foundations. If you are interested in having him play in or lead your band, please contact him directly about that.
