More details:
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Sir Oliver is a selector and event producer who mixes reggae from Jamaica and beyond, Latin salsa, and modern hip-hop -- all on his impressive vinyl collection. He has been actively involved in LA's Skid Row community for 9 years; he organized the first Bob Marley Day and Jamaican Independence Day festival in Skid Row in 2016, and brought them back the following year with renewed strength, undeterred by the difficulties and challenges of producing a community event with little or no budget while dealing with personal housing issues.
In 2017, thanks to Sir Oliver’s efforts, Mayor Eric Garcetti officially recognized Feb 6th in the City of Los Angeles as Bob Marley Day, stating "In remembrance of the legendary musician Bob Marley, I encourage the residents of this city on this day to also practice gratitude in the face of whatever inconvenience they may face and strive toward peace with their fellow human beings." Sir Oliver also participates weekly in Los Angeles Community Action Network's Organic Pop up Market, has been the house DJ for the Studio 526 Arts Jam for years, and has exhibited his visual artwork in several venues in Los Angeles. His work is published in the Skid Row Zine, with inspiration wholly rooted in his music interests.
