Sunday - also piano Bar Fri + Sat + Sun

Ollie McGill (The Cat Empire, Jackson Jackson, the Genie, The Conglomerate) had a keen ear for jazz and improvisation from a young age. From the age of 3 he was learning songs off the radio and teaching himself Christmas carols etc. Throughout high school Ollie performed in several acid jazz/funk/soul bands, including Latin a Latin Jazz band with Felix Riebl from the Cat Empire.

Fresh out of high school whilst being under the wing of Pianist/educator, Steve Sedergreen, Ollie was playing regularly at Bennetts Lane and Dizzy's jazz club. Following that, The Cat Empire took off around the globe, performing their own brand of Latin/Jazz/Funk/whatever. Ollie now has a unique perspective of jazz having had a colourful career, travelling around the globe a dizzying amount.
