Solid musicianship.

Byline: Victor D. Infante

COLUMN: TEN THINGS TO DO

The boogie-woogie folk fusion David Olney brings to the song "Trainwreck" is both infectious and fun. "You never settle for a little when a lot will do," he sings, "you put the pedal to the metal and it went right through." But Olney is a multitalented songwriter, and the darker feel he brings other songs, such as "Frank is Gone," and the searing blues-rock of "Sweet Poison," bespeak an immense range. But underneath everything is a solid groove that doesn't fuss much, but rather relies on solid musicianship. David Olney performs with Sergio Webb at 7 p.m. Friday at Greendale People's Community Church, 25 Francis St., Worcester. (508) 852-7727. $10 in advance; $12 at the door.
