Oliver Gannon!

Guitarist Oliver Gannon cut his teeth as part of the house band at the Cave. Since then he's won many awards and accolades as part of influential bands like the Fraser MacPherson Trio and Pacific Salt. Gannon is still going strong, and is considered one of the best this country has to offer. He'll help us get ready for "Guitar Month" this Saturday on Hot Air.
