Oliver Mitchell

Instruments: Guitar, Composition/Songwriting details
Oliver lived in England from 1965 to '71, and loved the music more than anything else, and was inspired by the changing values of the psychedelic " Peace and Love" aura of the times.
Bought his first electric in 1967, a used Vox Phantom and played it through a friend's AC 30 sometimes.
Oliver formed the band " Zinc Gizmo " in 1997 hosted a weekly jam and gigged around the Island.
In 2004 the band's name changed to "The Gruntles " when Arif Mitchell, (Son) joined as guitarist.
Oliver also played with other bands, with " Dakini " with Belly Dancers at Festivals and restaurants,
" OYA " an original Folk Duo with Yvonne Owens from 2015-17 and then with the " Olly Hub Trio."
Several recordings were released both live and studio.

Oliver plays mostly acoustic guitar today, and also enjoys bass, piano and drums occasionally.
