The Wheel Inn (Branston): ‘Ollie Jakes Music’ 8pm (As part of Beer Festival)
‘Ollie Jakes Music’ – The Wheel Inn, Branston, 19th May from 7:30pm.
Initially having formed to raise money for the London ‘Moon Walk’ and Cancer Research, the young members of ‘Ollie Jakes Music’ have gained considerable momentum over the last year. Previously playing ‘The Wheel’ on Christmas Eve, it’s no surprise that owner Matt Marsden booked them early, given that a delayed flight home from Geneva meant that Ollie only made it just as the band were going on… Nevertheless, no stressful trips home from Switzerland this time, just some quality beer and quality music from the pop/soul arrangement. For more information see @olliejakesmusic on Facebook.
Ollie Jakes – Vocals
Matt ‘The Magnificent’ Walton – Sax/Keys
Ethan Wood – Drums
Ben Sharp – Guitar
Will Jakes – Bass
