O.A.R. Comes to the ‘Boro

Posted by lacied on October 22, 2008

Just in time for Georgia Southern’s homecoming, O.A.R is stopping by on their ‘All Sides’ Tour with what is sure to be a rockin’ concert. Hailed as one of the best live bands on the planet, O.A.R. has built a fanatical following and a well deserved reputation as a must-see band when they come to town.

“Of a Revolution”(O.A.R.) was founded over a decade ago when a few 8th grade boys, bonding over their love for Pearl Jam, formed a band in Rockville, Maryland. Marc Roberge and Chris Culos along with Richard On and Benj Gershman then went on to graduate high school and attend Ohio State University where they found Jerry DePizzo, and the rest is history.

Now, 11 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. Their ninth, and newest album “All Sides” hit stores in July, and the first single from the album “Shattered (Turn the Car Around)” has been a success on the Billboard (Top) 100 Charts, and one of their biggest hits to date.

Come out to the RAC Bandshell on Thursday November 6th. The show starts at 8pm, with opening acts Jonathan Tyler and The Northern Lights, you’re not going to want to miss this
