Brian Olive

One of Cincinnati’s finest rock n roll exports, Brian Olive Band, will be kicking off their summer tour at the Ballroom at the Taft Theatre on Friday May 25. Brian Olive & his band conjure up a smooth garage/blues sound that has an undeniable streak of Memphis/Stax Soul running through it.

General Admission tickets, $8 ADV & $10 DOS (plus applicable fees), go on sale Friday April 20 at 10 AM at,, the Taft Theatre Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets including select Kroger stores. Charge by phone at 1.800.745.3000.

Following his 2009 self-titled debut , which was praised for skillfully blending soulful R&B with raunchy garage and psychedelia, Brian Olive (Ex-Greenhornes guitarist & Soledad Brothers multi instrumentalist) takes us further on his latest full length Two Of Everything. Listeners will recognize a number of musical touchstones here (Night Tripper era Dr. John, Exuma, early Funkadelic, Canned Heat, West Coast psych, etc) but the end result is completely Olive’s own, an insanely dynamic, soulful, psychedelically-rich summer album perfect for intergalactic flight, night visions, or voodoo rituals.

Two Of Everything was recorded and produced by both Olive and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys at The Diamonds in Cincinnati, and Easy Eye Sound in Nashville and features a revolving cast of talent including long time right hand man Mike Weinel, Detroit psychedelic caveman David Shettler (SSM, the Sights), Daniel Allaire (Darker My Love), and Jared McKinney (Greenhornes). The Brian Olive Band will be joined by Nashville’s Natural Child, and excellent locals The Tongue & Lips, and The Harlequins.
