Keep on keepin' on 

We are building up momentum coming into our summer season!  We have over forty shows booked for the next few months and we are so excited!!  We started off our summer schedule with a few great outdoor shows and it feels good.  We had an awesome show at the Maritime Festival in Gig Harbor with a very fun crowd and a show at Buzzes Tavern in Olympia out on the deck overlooking the bay with lots of good friends and fans in attendance.  

We are still working very hard on getting our whole first album finished professionally and we are looking forward to where that will take us once it is ready for the radio.  We are also starting to book shows in November and December and are looking to do a tour that takes us out of the Northwest a little bit!! 

Much love to all you and hope to see you at a show soon.  Couldn't do it without you :)

Summertime / Santa Claus Song Update 

Our Christmas song that we wrote has gotten a lot of attention recently.  It's been a little under the radar since because people are looking to cut it in Nashville.  If we don't end up getting it cut, our version of the song is going to be used for T.V. and social media advertising for Realtree Camouflage between Black Friday and Christmas.  Some cool options there!!

Our summer tour schedule is starting to look pretty awesome.  We have so many shows that we are looking forward to and hope that we will see you all at a few :)  Still waiting to hear back from Watershed for anybody who was wondering.

We also just released our new song and lyric video for "Everybody's Gunna Get Down Tonight."  The video already has over 60,000 views and we are trying to get it noticed by SiriusXM The Highway.  If you like the song go tell them you would like to hear it on their station on their Facebook page!

Thank you all for your continued support.
Much Love,
The Bros

Lots to look forward to 

We found out that we weren't chosen for America's Got Talent which was kind of a bummer but we really weren't putting much of our faith in that anyways.  Everything that we have achieved so far has been through hard work and the support of our loyal fans and that has been the most rewarding experience for us as a band.  We have a lot of big shows already lined up for the summer with the larger ones still in the works.  Some people in Nashville are also starting to show some interest in some of the songs that we have written so things are looking' good.  

Making Moves 

This month we added another person to the band!  Michael Arms will now be playing guitar, fiddle, and keys with us and we couldn't be more excited.  America's Got Talent also called us up out of the blue the other day and let us skip the first round of auditions up in Tacoma and we auditioned yesterday for the second round.  The judges said that we did "excellent" and they want us to shoot a few more videos for them to see before they decide who goes onto TV in two weeks!  Make sure you check out the schedule and come see a show soon!  We have been booking a lot of shows lately :)  Thank you all for your continued support, God bless!

Happy Holidays Podcast

Hope you all had a great holiday season!  Now it's time to sit back and watch our Seahawks win another Super Bowl! : )  We have been hard at work writing music and booking shows as always!  Make sure to head on over and check out the schedule that is getting larger everyday and see when we will be in your area.  There are too many to name them all here but we are playing all of the most fun fairs that we played last year with some new additions, playing a HUGE show at Beasley Coliseum, with a bunch of festivals and such and we aren't even halfway done booking for the summer.  

We have also been spending a lot of time recording 5 of our new songs with a Latin Grammy award winner who is helping us get the songs ready for the radio.  Other than that we have been filming for our music video for our song "My Santa Claus Wears Camoflage." this song has gotten us some recognition from Nashville and we are told that there is some interest from some "known" artists who may want to make a cut of the song.

Thank you all for the continued support,  Much love,
-The Bros

New Drummer 

We have just brought a new drummer (Seth Bowman) on board after our last drummer, James Blackburn had to leave for a new job where he had to work 6 days a week.  We appreciate all the work James put in for the band but are very excited to have Seth in the band.  Seth has a lot of experience playing in bands and writing music and we can already tell that we are going to have a lot of fun with this guy at our shows.  Now that we have got a drummer again we are thinking of adding a few more instruments to the band for our larger shows that we have in the works this summer.  We can't make any announcements about what these venues are just yet because they are not completely locked down yet but I'll just say that we could use a few more musicians up there with us to fill up these stages! :)  We are going to keep on writing, recording, and playing music for you all to enjoy.  Keep rockin' out guys and remember you can listen to all our music on this site or spotify!

On the Radio! 

Our Sunrise Summer Tour is over and after months of playing 3 shows a week we are taking a break from that to concentrate on writing music, recording, and getting that music on the radio!  We just recorded our song "Everything" at Robert Lang's Studio in Seattle where greats like Nirvana and Dave Mathews have recorded their album.  It was quite the experience and we got a really great radio quality song out of it!  It is playing on Bull Country 99.5 in the Pullman WA area 3 times a day and we have got some air time in the Okanogan/Ferry WA area. It has been pretty fun listening to our song on the radio after all the work we have put into getting it there!  We are in the process of finishing some more tunes in the studio in Seattle and will hopefully have a whole professionally done CD soon with some of our new and older stuff.  Thank you all for your continued support!

Our one year anniversary 

It has been a year now since our band played their first show together!  It has been a great one and we have come a long way.  We appreciate all of your continued support and we can't wait to see what the next year will bring.

We just added a few things to our website store that you can buy online or at our shows. We have signed posters available in the store and brand new yellow tank tops with a new design that were a huge hit at our last show, when they were first available.  Also make sure to check out one of our newest releases on itunes called "When She Let Her Hair Down."

In the last couple days we have been writing a lot of new songs and we wrote one called "Caught in the Rain" that we have started to play at our shows that we really love.  We hope that you will be able to catch a show and listen to it but keep an eye out for a recording of it soon.

We are still showing all of our new songs to our connections that we have in L.A. and Nashville and they say they are waiting for the song that is going to be a sure fire hit.  Maybe it will be "Caught in the Rain" maybe the next one we write?  Who knows :) But we know it's coming. 

New Songs! 

We just returned from Nashville were we wrote a few songs that we are very happy with!!  Since we got back we are have been practicing with the band and taught them the songs and learned some new covers.  It feels great to be back at it with the band after James got his cast off from his broken finger.  Make sure you make a show sometime soon!!  
     Our trip to Nashville went really well and the publishing company we were writing with is talking about coming up to watch a show and hiring us on to write songs with them.  We were stoked to learn that they want us to keep the songs we write for our own album instead of trying to sell them to already established artists.  They want us to continue to write until we have a stockpile of songs with a few sure fire hits and then they are going to show all of that to Sony Records!

     We like where this is going!  Oh ya and we got hired to play at The Washington State Fair this year twice! Check the dates on the show tab!!  

     We are also very excited that we have been sponsored by Northwest Hydro Print based out of Montesano!  They Coated our speakers in Camo and engraved our band name into them also!  Make sure you hit them up with all your camo and laser engraving needs.  Camo Bands has also sponsored us and you can go to their website (http://camobands.com/) and get a 20% discount by typing in "Olsons2014" when you checkout!

    Luke has been busy recording our new tunes so be on the lookout for new releases and music videos.  Imperial Cymbals just reached out to us and is interested in sponsoring our drummer James Blackburn who just got our band's name on his kick drum!!  

    We can't wait for all the shows coming up and all the opportunities this summer will bring! 

Yeehaw! 

The end of the school year is in sight for the bros!  Just a few more weeks and we'll be down in Nashville again.  Check the schedule out!  There are a ton of new shows that we have booked recently where we will be headlining for some big venue and fairs!!  Also check out some of our new tunes that we have been writing on the music tab.  Words cannot describe how ready for summertime we are.  Can't wait to have more time to write music and be playing huge shows!!!  Thank you to everyone who is out there sharing the word about our band, a bunch of the shows that we have booked have come from our fans who are out there telling people about our music!  We really appreciate you all.

Much love,
The Bros

    While I have MANY great memories from Olson Bros concerts, my best memory of an Olson Bros concert was when they played for our camping friends from Oregon at our house on Summit Lake. They played great music and entertained the crowd like pros. In fact there were boats everywhere in front of our house just floating and listening to great music all night long!!! Excellent times which my friends still talk about. Thanks guys!

    Last September, terrific outdoor lighted stage at sunset in beautiful wide open countryside. Great sound operator, nice people, donations by the Olson Bros Band of percentage of receipts from sales to help the recent fire victims, a rousing performance by the band and fantastic Country Dancers all made for fantastic memories!

    Isaac and Luke came to play at McLane Elementary's last GRIN assembly of the school year last Friday. McLane is the boy's old elementary school and we loved having them come play for the kids and staff. The audience was energized and loved to hear stories about Isaac and Luke from their days at McLane. Great music and good times hanging out with the kids. Thanks for inspiring the next generation of entertainers!
