Oleskies (ole-skeez) is a blues/rock/funk/soul jam band based in Baton Rouge. Members include Caleb Hamilton on guitar and lead vocals, Connor Dille on bass guitar and back-up vocals, and Thomas Burke on the drums. Balancing a graduating senior student workload  at LSU, the three have still managed to find time to jam over the past 2 years.  

Caleb Hamilton is the lead singer/songwriter and guitar player. His experience of playing blues and rock gigs with an older group in Lake Charles' shaped his old school, blues sound. Influences include the Black Keys and the Queens of the Stone Age.  

Connor Dille has been gigging with local bands such as the PrimeMates and The Gypsy Whip since he was 18. His experience has allowed him to shape a solid, bone shaking bass sound that meshes perfectly with Caleb's dark and edgy blues riffs. His main influences are the Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Killers.  

Thomas Burke has been performing with the local cover band, the Drew Danzy Band, as well as spending four years in the LSU Tiger Band drum line. This experience, along with the funk, rock, and blues influences of Earth Wind and Fire, Jimi Hendrix, The Black Keys, and Chicago, have greatly shaped his playing style.  

It all started with the first jam session in  summer 2015. The basis of each song is a catchy riff played by Caleb's guitar. A jam session follows until Connor finds a steady bass groove to match Thomas's pocket drums often associated with funk and blues. Lyrics and chorus easily fall right into place. The resultant sound is warm and open, allowing space for improvisation in live settings. Our original song repertoire is growing rapidly and we are looking forward to playing more and more shows.
