Ollie to perform opening residency at world's first Quincy Jones bar at palazzo Versace, Dubai

Music legend Quincy Jones is opening his first ever bar. Q’s is set to become Dubai’s most desirable venue for live entertainment and Polyarts are thrilled to announce that he’s invited Ollie Howell to perform the opening residency. 

Based in the luxurious Palazzo Versace Dubai, the living room-like space will feature performances from an ever-changing schedule of acts featuring next generation stars, directed by Quincy himself. Starting November onwards Q's Bar and Lounge will feature the talented, multi-award winning drummer, instrumentalist, composer and producer Ollie Howell, whose live shows and recordings have impressed fans around the world. In the words of Quincy Jones, Ollie Howell is 'an unbelievable drummer. So creative I couldn’t believe it… he really is a 360-degree beautiful young cat.'

Ollie said: ‘I feel truly honoured and humbled to have been asked by Quincy to perform the opening residency at the club with my group. I really don’t know if my debut album would have been created in quite the same way, had it not been for my interaction with Quincy at that time, and the impact his continued support and help is having on me is simply unquantifiable.’

The residency runs from the hotel’s opening night on 14 November until 12 February. It’s going to be an incredible experience and you can follow the opening, the club and our whole Dubai adventure on Ollie’s social media channels.
