Indie Rockers O.A.R. to Perform at Moravian College – November 20

O.A.R.Bethlehem, Pa., October 22, 2010—Indie rock band O.A.R. (Of a Revolution) will perform at Moravian College on Saturday, November 20 at 8 p.m. in Johnston Hall. O.A.R. appearance is on the heels of their most recent live album, Rain or Shine which was released in January 2010 and includes their hit tracks "Love and Memories," "Shattered," and "This Town." Over the years, they have cultivated a fanatical following, most of them being collegiate revelers, with songs about their lives and experiences.

O.A.R. is composed of Marc Roberge (vocals, guitar), Chris Culos (drums, percussion), Richard On (guitar, backing vocals), Benj Gershman (bass guitar), and Jerry DePizzo (saxophone, guitar, backing vocals).

The band originally formed in 1996 and released their first album, The Wanderer, in 1997. During the band’s early years they toured nonstop in order to promote their songs and albums and so their existence spread mainly by word of mouth. In 2005 their fifth studio album, Stories of a Stranger, debuted at #40 on the Billboard 200 and included their single "Love and Memories" which received significant radio airplay. After the release of their fifth studio album, the band came into the mainstream light and started achieving significant success. Since then, the band has gone on to release a sixth studio album, All Sides (2008) along with five live albums released over the years.
