His fabulous organ technique and original style win Ollie rave reviews from audiences as he appears throughout Canada, the United States, England, Germany and Japan. This popular Canadian musician first received international attention in 1980 when he was hired as Staff Organist/Product Specialist by the original 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 concerts for Technics Musical Instruments, Hammond Keyboards Canada, Farfisa, Hammond Suzuki USA and Kawai America.

Ollie has performed in over 300 cities in 48 of the 50 United States, (no North Dakota or Alaska yet!) and in all ten Canadian provinces. In 2009, Ollie is celebrating his 43rd year as a professional musician. He has appeared in many organ festivals and shows with other well known organists such as Lenny Dee, Bob Ralston of the Lawrence Welk Show, Dennis Awe, Rosemary Bailey, Hector Olivera, Joey Defrancesco, Seth Rye, Bill Ryder, Tommy Johnson, Ric Iannone, Larry Ferrari, Bill Horn, Choy Lozada, Gene Roberson, Chuck Wright, Porter Heaps, and many others.

Since 1994, Ollie is the organist/keyboardist at Laurel Lea St. Matthew's Presbyterian Church, located in his home town of Sarnia, Ontario, Canada.

Besides his church & concert work, Ollie performs at conventions, banquets, wedding ceremonies & receptions, conferences and dinner/dances throughout North America on state-of-the-art digital organs and keyboard instruments, acoustic pianos, and pipe organs. He is also an expert accompanist for soloists and other instrumentalists.

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 hits of the Twentieth Century.......Latin, Swing, Jazz, Standards, World Music, Christian, Liturgical, Theater, Country, Soft Rock, and many other styles.
