Maryland native rock band O.A.R. will be performing at Club Nokia on September 19. The band consists of lead vocalist/guitarist Marc Roberge, drummer Chris Culos, guitarist Richard On, bassist Benj Gershman and saxophonist/guitarist Jerry DePizzo. On their eighth studio album, The Rockville EP, the band found that returning home triggered a journey of creative renewal and inspiration.
Releasing The Rockville LP in June last year, the first single “Peace” was a reboot for the band. They wanted to focus on the simpler things in life. “As we were writing it, I felt the weight of three years lift off my shoulders,” Roberge says. “We wrote it about getting back to that even playing field after you go through turbulent times. It’s about what I see people going through all around me, everyone deserves second, third, fourth chances.”
O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live shows and the communal feeling it shares with its fans. The band hopes fans will feel the same at the upcoming show at Club Nokia in September. Don’t miss out!
