Sunday Night Jazz Showcase

Program #247 (April 21 at 8:00 p.m.)

After his schooling in England, Bernard Oattes spent two years with a local Dutch band, Steam. The band was the catalyst that brought Bernard and writer/producer Rob van Schaik together.

As partners, Bernard and Rob were the founding members of the pop band The Limit, writing and producing international dance hits.

Bernard composed music for other pop-orientated groups, but writing and producing dance material alone became "limiting."
