OLIO / Press

"I've had the pleasure of knowing Olio for several years now and have been a fan since the first time I heard them. I've used them as an example to other young bands when trying to impress upon them the importance of being 'tight'. I've never been disappointed with their efforts in promoting their shows, and they've always brought their best to the stage when booking them on my shows at House of Blues. Add in the fact that they're truly all-around good guys and it's hard to go wrong with Olio."

“I listened to your music and must say that I am really impressed and that very rarely happens. I watched your video and say I'm impressed would be an understatement. Olio is that very rare combination of super commercial hit material, wonderful high energy performance (super vocals and musicianship), dynamite stage presence and a high level of professionalism. On behalf of Fame Wizard, it would be a pure pleasure to work with you.”

“Hi Guys, This is Great. There's a great energy and your topline melodies are strong, especially in the chorus. This is something I would listen to and your musicianship clearly shows. ”

“Power trios are by definition musically challenging, but OLIO manages to combine a great, soulful rhythm section with cool guitar work, melodic vocal lines and tight harmonies. We caught up with the band at the 2012 Indie Music Festival in Vegas last month, and shot the brief interview and live performance video clip above. Olio really impressed with a blend of all the right stuff: creativity, musicianship, and chemistry, along with strong songwriting skills and a great interpersonal dynamic among the band members. ”

“Saw a great band tonight worthy of lots of attention... live they are a cross between The Dave Matthews Band & Red Hot Chili Peppers - awesome energy and musicianship - click your "like" button for Olio and give them support :) ”

“I saw you guys on Linkedin and I love the soul you guys put into your music. it's definitely a different feel, but the uniqueness is what makes it great!”

"Wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Olio live at Rusty's Surf Ranch in Santa Monica. Sounded great! Enjoyed meeting Arif & DeHaven. Don't miss them. Trio has great chemistry. "One Last Goodbye" is worth the price of admission alone.

“Hey just wanted to congratulate you guys on your Rusty's win. We played first but I heard you guys killed it, our drummer said that he had no problems losing to such a tight band! Keep up, we'll be rooting for you to win it all. Jason from Me and Heath ”

“I also had the great privilege of meeting the band Olio! A group of fine gentlemen rockstars that are so fun to watch live I would go see them again in a heartbeat. These guys were an amazing show in and of themselves and I was pretty excited to have gotten to check them out. ”

“Wow...You guy's sound great!!!! Aren't I the Lucky JUAN!!!!! Thanks Vatos ”

“...The basslines are funky, with raging guitar solos layered overtop, and with the occasional drum circle percussion at time.. I would personally want to them rock out the Santa Monica Pier on a Thursday..”

““ Don't usually listen to this type music, but they are really good artists and they make it work for me. ””

“ Just wanted to say THANK YOU for an playing the show last night. Your band has MAD SKILLS and the head of production at House of Blues was like "T-roy book these guys OVER AND OVER AND OVER!" ”

“Listened to some of your music and i believe you guys should continue with what your doing, Good Job.. Thats right, Live The Dream!!!”

“Wicked wicked wicked. Olio's purple rock. Keep up the hot tunes fellas. ”

“Hey there Olio. Wow! Even if we didn't play on Saturday it still would have been worth the drive to see you guys. GREAT music!”

“Dude, the Olio cd is awesome! Great job.”

“That's the way to do it! You sound great.”

“Boxspring..nyce track man!”

“The musicianship is always high quality.. all of the songs sound full and have great dynamics...There is a definite level of comfort with each genre they explore and it was a pleasure to listen to the album. I recommend it to anyone who wants something different, but has no idea what that is. ”

“Olio is an interesting concoction. They span multiple genres, reflecting their multiple influences...”

“Olio is an up and coming band I would be proud to have them on the same stage as me!”

“Olio isn't simply a sign of the revival of the classic rock sound; they've actually managed to create a classic sound that is new without stepping into the land of cliché.”

“We got our first CD in today from Olio and the music is pretty killer! You should check 'em out... go listen to 'em right now... It's some good stuff.”

“Olio plays music to evoke that sense of emotion and heartfelt craftsmanship. and they are ready to help bring the old fashion authenticity back to the music industry”

“Unlike some so called “power trios” that pound out walls of three chord chaos, Olio is a more refined group that has a great balance between Rock, Soul, and Pop, all wrapped up in a package of freshness and originality. Their sound is clean cut, precise, and tasteful like pieces of ear candy...”

“I would like to create a category that can recognize how amazing you guys are as a power trio. When I hear stuff like what you do, I am reminded that 20 categories just are not enough to handle all the diversity of styles that come in to our organization.”

“The band Olio is one of the best rhythm sections I've see since I've been in L.A.”
