OJ has been art of the Geraldine Festival family for a number of years now, entertaining and MC-ing on both Friday and Saturdays.

OJ is a singer/guitarist from Timaru and has been singing around the region at weddings and events, either solo or with his duo ‘Big Picnic’ for many years.
He grew up listening to the music of Neil Diamond, Van Morrison and The Beatles as a kid but his real passion has been the music of middle America and singer songwriter guitarists like John Mellencamp, John Fogarty, Bob Seger and Tom Petty. He also enjoys Kiwi favourites like Dave Dobbyn, Crowded House and Dragon.

OJ loves to perform and when not playing his music he is busy with his family and presenting his breakfast radio show on The Breeze Timaru.
