"Banjo World"

May 1897

BANJO CONCERT AT STEINWAY HALL

Olley (sic.) Oakley, who had journeyed from Birmingham expressly, played a waltz of his own, entitled "Les Sylphes", and in response to a very unanimous encore, gave an excellent rendition of Cammeyer’s "Andante and Waltz". We have never heard any other artist so nearly approach Cammeyer in tone production, and in saying this, we are giving Mr. Oakley the very highest praise. Birmingham is very fortunate in possessing a player who knows how to handle a zither-banjo.
