Canadian rockers OLIVER BLACK to play 2004 NXNE Music Festival

After grabbing rave reviews during 2004’s Canadian Music Week, the “rock’n’roll” band OLIVER BLACK are back to conquer this year’s North By Northeast Music Festival in Toronto, June 10-12. With a successful year underway OLIVER BLACK are accredited for their high energy performances and resurrecting a much anticipated return of traditional rock and roll.

“...this band is going to bring back a sound that legends are made of.” - Soundline Magazine

OLIVER BLACK are honoured to be invited to participate in the coveted ‘One Night Stand’ showcase, Friday June 11th at The Rivoli. This showcase sponsored by entertainment law firm Sanderson-Taylor, is known for breaking hot new artists. Past performers include Billy Talent (Atlantic), Three Days Grace (Jive), The New Deal (Jive) and K-OS (EMI/Astrelworks), who have gone on to sign major recording contracts.

“We are pumped to play the festival, especially to be chosen for this showcase. A great way to kickoff the summer shows !”

- Serena Pruyn - lead singer of OLIVER BLACK

OLIVER BLACK recently signed with Canada‘s ‘Booking Agency of The Year’, The Agency Group (Nickelback, Evanesence, The White Stripes) and are currently sharing the summer stages with such established artists as Default, The Trews, Sam Roberts and Thornley. The band returns to rock the Rivoli again for NXNE, after previous sold out performances in both January and May. In addition to a busy touring schedule this summer, the band are currently writing and recording material for their much anticipated full length debut, slated for release in early 2005.
