O.A.R.

O.A.R. (an acronym for the band's full moniker, Of a Revolution) transformed itself from an independent college band to a Billboard chart-topper over the course of a long, varied career. First, two of the band's demo recordings were hawked on university campuses. Then, news spread about the band's roots rock and reggae-inflected songs, which owed much to the jam band genre. Before long, O.A.R.'s website had turned into a highly trafficked Internet destination, and the group gradually left the college scene for the bright lights of national stardom.

Formed in 1996 in Rockville, Maryland, O.A.R. coalesced around lead singer/rhythm guitarist Marc Roberge, lead guitarist Richard On, saxophonist Jerry DePizzo, bassist Benj Gershman, and drummer Chris Culos. Roberge had known Culos since childhood; he also played in local bands with On and Gershman. DePizzo, who hailed from Youngstown, Ohio, met the other Maryland natives at Ohio State, and the band made its studio debut with the release of an independent demo, 1997's The Wanderer. Many of the songs on O.A.R.'s debut disc were written while Roberge and Culos were living in Israel, and the album was recorded on a shoestring budget in Culos' basement.

Two years later, the switch from student band to headlining act began with the arrival of an intensely popular song, "That Was a Crazy Game of Poker," which became a hit on college campuses. The group toured the college circuit as a result, booking shows between classes and encouraging fans to tape each show, which helped spread O.A.R.'s music to a wider audience. O.A.R. then went into the recording studio for a second independent demo, 1999's Souls Aflame, which helped the band land a distribution deal with Alternative Distribution Alliance. By the time Risen appeared in 2001, O.A.R. had earned enough buzz to hire producer John Alagia for the album, which went on to sell 60,000 copies without a major label.

Roberge began writing songs for a new CD later that year. To appease its dedicated fan base, the group issued a popular live album, 2002's Any Time Now, and signed a major-label deal with Lava/Atlantic for the release of 2003's In Between Now and Then. Additional tour dates provided enough material for a second live album, 34th & 8th, and the band began climbing the Billboard charts with 2005's Stories of a Stranger, a studio album that contained a pair of Top 20 Hot AC hits in "Love and Memories" and "Heard the World." A third live offering, the CD/DVD set Live from Madison Square Garden, appeared in 2007.

O.A.R.'s slickest album yet, All Sides, followed in 2008, and the four-disc live set Rain or Shine appeared one year later. Both were quite popular, with All Sides peaking at number 13 on the Billboard charts. Looking to repeat that feat, O.A.R. swung for the fences again with 2011's King, which found the band reuniting with All Sides' producer, Matt Wallace. The CD/DVD Live on Red Rocks, which featured performances culled from their summer tour, arrived in 2012, followed in 2014 by the band's eighth studio long-player, The Rockville LP. ~ Robert Hicks, Rovi

They're from Rockville, MD, how do you not know that biggest fan?
I among my whole social circle, are one of O.A.R's biggest fans! We went to every show we could! I graduated high school in 2003. So my entire junior and senior year we spent traveling and chasing the best band all over! They are from Athens,Ohio in which I grew up 40minutes away! We loved watching them jam! Jammin on Main Street was the best show I have ever seen. The band had Ziggy Marley, Howie Day.....it was the best weekend of my life!! Many many high school and college memories because of
Omg Aweshome band!
The newer stuff feels forced and top pop hits, while the Any time now album is still in my top five.
Got to see these guys in concert twice really good
They Sound like jack o pierce
My friends uncle is the lead singer for OAR

I've seen them open a few times for DMB, but my favorite show was Rock n Roar a small outdoor benefit show held inside the National Zoo in DC. It was Marc and Richard with only a few hundred in the audience.
Cool song

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually work
By far O.A.R is the best band ever and they will be at the top of the charts one day
Rain Or Shine
I like the Lions in the clouds on the Live album cover, and also presents a mountainesqu e type look, if that is even a word, add it to your thesaurus.

I've never seen a band fall so far. Back in the day, I saw these guys at least 15 times. Now they make $hitty radio music and trashy rock pop.
