O.A.R. Tickets for Sale

O.A.R. (aka Of a Revolution) converted from an Ohio State frat band to Billboard chartbuster and headliner at major venues across America. First, college reps hawked the band's two demo recordings to people and servers at universities. Then, word-of-mouth news spread about the band's roots rock and reggae-inflected upbeat songs. Before long, the band got thousands of hits daily on their website at www.ofarevolution.com.

O.A.R.'s third CD, Risen, was produced by John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, Ben Folds Five) and recorded in summer 2000 at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ, and at Dumbo Studios in New York City for the group's independent label, Everfine Records. The CD debuted at number 11 on February 24, 2001, on the Top Internet Album Sales chart in Billboard.

O.A.R. is often compared to the Dave Matthews Band, owing to vocalist and guitarist Marc Roberge's close vocal approximation to Matthews, as well as their mutual love for jamming. The roots of O.A.R. ("Of A Revolution') stretch back to the early 90s, when Roberge and drummer Chris Culos were classmates in junior high school (in Rockville, Maryland, USA), and would listen to music and jam together. By the late 90s, Roberge and Culos had welcomed two others into their fold, Richard On (guitar) and Benj Gershman (bass), resulting in the formation of O.A.R. in 1998. Building up a solid fanbase owing to live shows from the east coast through the mid-west, O.A.R. issued two releases on their own in 2000, The Wanderer and Soul's Aflame, the latter of which featured the arrival of a fifth member, Jerry DePizzo (saxophone). The quintet's next two releases were recorded live, 2001's Risen and 2002"s Any Time Now, the latter of which sold a staggering 100,000 copies by word of mouth alone. Deciding that being with a major label would take their career to the next level, O.A.R. signed with Atlantic Records, and issued In Between Now And Then, in 2003.
