WHO: O.A.R.
WITH: BRETT DENNEN
WHAT: Eleven years after the group’s first release, O.A.R. has come to stand for authentic rock music that reflects the collective triumphs and tragedies we all experience in this world: Real people making real music that resounds deeply with their fans. Of course, some would say vocalist Marc Roberge and his O.A.R. band mates have been delighting audiences since he, guitarist Richard On and drummer Chris Culos formed their first group in 8th grade in Maryland in the early ’90s, bonding over their love of Pearl Jam.

Three years later, in 11th grade, bassist Benj Gershman came on board and O.A.R. – of a revolution – was born. Saxophonist Jerry DePizzo, after meeting Roberge and Culos at Ohio State University, joined the band full time in 2000. “People often tell me that they relate to us and our music, not just with the words, but with the general manner in which we act and perform. I tell them that may be because there is no ‘act’,” Roberge says. “We are just five friends playing songs we love to play and enjoying every minute of it.

The audience can relate because we are having just as much fun as they are. And we are writing abut many of the same life experiences they are living or have lived, not some fantasy world that puts rock bands behind some sort of one-way mirror ten feet above the crowd.” And what a crowd O.A.R. attracts. Hailed as one of the best live bands on the planet, O.A.R. has built a rabid following and a well deserved reputation as a must-see band when they come to town.
