Keyboardist Ollie Case
His fabulous technique and original style win Ollie rave reviews from audiences as he appears throughout Canada, the United States, England, Germany and Japan.
Ollie's current touring instrument is a TECHNICS Model FA-1
This popular Canadian musician first received international attention in 1980 when he was hired as Staff Organist/Product Specialist by the legendary Hammond Organ Company, headquartered on Diversey Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. Prior to the Hammond appointment, Ollie was the recipient of several honors and awards including first prize out of 211 original entries in the All Ontario Amateur Talent Contest, as well as first runner-up awards in the Canadian Finals of the Yamaha International Organ Festival. Ollie has also played promotional piano, organ and keyboard concerts for Technics Musical Instruments, Hammond Keyboards Canada, Farfisa, Hammond Suzuki USA and Kawai America.
A Case performance will invariably run the gamut of musical styles from down home toe-tappers to dynamic orchestral arrangements and his appearances inevitably leave audiences spellbound by his musical virtuosity, enthusiasm and sincere expressionism. Ollie's massive songlist includes Latin, Swing, Jazz, Standards, World Music, Christian, Gospel, Liturgical, Theater, Country, Pop, Rock, and Soft Rock.
Ollie has performed in over 300 cities in 48 of the 50 United States, (no North Dakota or Alaska yet!), in all ten Canadian provinces, as well as appearances in Japan, England and Germany. In 2017, Ollie is celebrating his 53rd year of performing. He turned professional 51 years ago.
Since 1994, Ollie is the organist/keyboardist at Laurel Lea St. Matthew's Presbyterian Church, located in his home town of Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. www.llsmpc.ca
