Top Hits: HEAVEN, SHATTERED, THAT WAS A CRAZY GAME OF POKER
O.A.R. Booking Profile
The band was founded in 1996 by Marc Roberge and Chris Culos, who then recruited Richard On and Benj Gershman. Without any formal marketing or advertising plans, news of their songs such as “That Was a Crazy Game of Poker”, “City on Down” and “Night Shift” spread by word of mouth alone. The band played as many shows as they could, expanding from the fraternities and sororities of Ohio State to any audiences that cared to listen. This exposure paid off and the band gained even more mainstream popularity after the release of a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden. 2008 saw the release of All Sides, which featured the hit singles ‘Shattered (Turn The Car Around)’ and ‘This Town.’. O.A.R. completed a seven-month nationwide tour in mid-December 2010. The band introduced several new songs in many of its live performances during the tour, including: “Light Switch Sky”, “Over and Over,” “Fire,” “So Good So Far,” “Morning Sons,” “Dangerous Connection,” and “Gotta Live.” A new album, King was released on Wind-up Records on August 2, 2011. The album’s first single, “Heaven”, was released on June 7, 2011. On May 8, 2012, O.A.R. released a new single as part of a collaboration with Duracell in support of Team USA in the 2012 London Summer Olympics. The song is called “Champions”, and features rapper B.o.B, who contributed the vocals in the verses.
