The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts
What do you call a band whose 20-year career spans sold-out stands at both Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks Amphitheater, millions of albums sold over the course of nine full-length releases and multiple chart-busting entries? In the case of O.A.R., two simple words suffice: “The Mighty.”
That’s the best way to sum up the Maryland quintet: Marc Roberge (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Richard On (lead guitar, backing vocals), Chris Culos (drums), Benj Gershman (bass) and Jerry DePizzo (saxophone, guitar, backing vocals), with MikelParis (keys, backing vocals, percussion) and Jon Lampley (trumpet, backing vocals).
Since their emergence in 1996, the musicians have tirelessly delivered a signature brand of rock steeped in alternative scope, roots tradition and pop ambition. Among many highlights, 2008’s “All Sides” yielded the platinum single “Shattered” and bowed in the top 15 of the Billboard Top 200, a space they continually occupied with “King” and “The Rockville LP.” The band’s official music video for their recent single, “Miss You All The Time,” saw over 5 million views on YouTube after its debut and was included in their brand new, 2019 album, “The Mighty.”
Beyond packing arenas and amphitheaters coast to coast, they’ve given inspiring performances on “The Today Show,” “CONAN,” the 2015 Special Olympics opening ceremony, the ESPY Awards and the 2016 “Times Square New Year’s Eve Celebration.”
