The St. Augustine Amphitheatre proudly welcomes the return of alternative pop rock veterans O.A.R. on “The Mighty O.A.R. Summer Tour” with American Authors and Huntertones on Saturday, June 15, 2019.
O.A.R. first began developing their unique sound while in high school in Rockville, Maryland. With three albums under their belt before they finished college, the band began pursuing their musical dreams full time in the summer of 2001. By the end of 2008, the band had released six studio albums and three live double disc CDs.
During the course of its’ two decades of making records, O.A.R. (lead singer and primary songwriter Marc Roberge, drummer Chris Culos, guitarist Richard On, bassist Benj Gershman and saxophonist/guitarist Jerry DePizzo) has created and maintained a sort of a parallel universe. In effect hiding in plain sight from the world outside, the band fills arenas and amphitheaters as it crafts and releases relatable songs with big pop hooks, all of this activity going down completely apart from the mainstream. Within this universe, these songs are bona fide hits and the band members are superstars.
To date O.A.R. has sold close to 2 million albums and more than 2 million concert tickets. In 2011, the band released the album, “King”, which debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 chart, No. 3 on the Billboard Digital Album Chart, and was No. 3 at iTunes. “King” was the follow-up to the band’s 2008 release, “All Sides”, which contains the platinum hit single “Shattered”. The band’s album, “The Rockville LP”, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart and #6 on the Top Current Rock Albums chart. Upon its release, “The Rockville LP” hit the top spot on the iTunes Rock Albums chart and #3 on iTunes Overall Albums chart. The album features the songs “Favorite Song”, “Two Hands Up”, and smash hit, “Peace”.
