“Die OK Band, Oli, Holger und Rolf, haben mir die Möglichkeit gegeben, meine Lieder in einem neuen Licht zu sehen und mich mehr auf den Gesang zu konzentrieren. Neue Grooves, einen freieren und jazzigeren Ansatz und das Einbeziehen einiger älterer Songs, die ich seit Jahren nicht mehr gespielt habe, geben der Show ein gerundeteres und vollkommeneres Gefühl. Ich liebe es mit diesen Jungs zu musizieren, sie sind wirklich außergewöhnliche Musiker.” – Frank Pyne

It definitely helps to play with great musicians like Oliver, Rolf and Holger who want to serve the songs and not dominate them … Oliver is the unspoken musical director. His ability to play creatively is a massive plus and his mastery of the musical language of many different styles and genres is invaluable. Likewise with Rolf. He has become one the best bass players around. With me he plays mostly Contrabass and I love what he does. Sometimes I only exchange a general instruction, agree a rough form, then we head into the song live, in front of an audience, It’s like a big exercise, an adventure. Feeling your way into the heart of the song and listening intently to one another. Listening to your fellow musicians and building dialogues is probably the most rewarding exercise. In the end it’s often Holger who identifies the problems when a song doesn’t work. When a song doesn’t groove like it should Holger lays his healing hands on the song and gets rid of any negative influences. He’s the drum doctor. He can adjust your inner rhythm. One thing we share is a love for the songs. In THE OK BAND we treat the song like royalty. We also agree on the guiding principle of our musical union, that is of course that the song is king.
