OLAS creates, congregates and plays for the love of playing. That’s it.

The musicians of OLAS come from a rich and diverse musical scene based in Portland, Maine. Chriss Sutherland and Tom Kovacevic hail from Cerberus Shoal and Fire on Fire, Dylan Blanchard from Portland’s premier salsa band Grupo Esperanza, and Leif Sherman Curtis from Conifer, who has released two records on Important Records. Dancers Lindsey Bourassa and Megan Keogh come from an eclectic dance background that includes ballet, modern, jazz, salsa, and flamenco. And palmeras Molly Angie and Anna Trunzo are local artists from Portland, ME who have spent the past year learning and performing the palmas rhythms inherent to the music of OLAS.
