In September 2006 the remaining SAILORs
Henry, Grant and Phil were proud to announce that Henry's
son, Oliver Marsh joined the band replacing Peter Lincoln
on lead vocals and guitar. Oliver, already achieved
fantastic success as a star vocalist in such productions
as 'The Blues Brothers' which toured all over Germany,
and 'The Roy Orbison Story' in which he played both John
Lennon and Bruce Springsteen to rave reviews and critical
acclaim. Prior to this he impressed many in Phil and
Henry's ''Casper The Musical'' which opened in London's
West End in 1999. In many ways he was the obvious choice
and his impressive vocal range as well as a genuine
enthusiasm to become part of the band instantly convinced
everyone that Ollie was their man.
Oliver had his first performance with SAILOR in Munich (Germany) on 14 October 2006. The concert was a huge success, as were the subsequent concerts. Thanks to Oliver's unique opera voice, SAILOR added a moving new encore, "Con Te Partiṛ" to their set.
In April 2009, Oliver left SAILOR to pursue his career in opera, but he returned again in May 2011.
