In 1996; the world of popular music was introduced to a group that would eventually go on to be one of the biggest rock groups of all time; O.A.R. The band’s acronym O.A.R. stands for “Of A Revolution;” which is a motto the band has used throughout their time as a group. The famed jam-band first rose to fame when performing at many college venues and to college aged crowds. The group began to find a massive following thanks to their mellow rock melodies and their high school inspired lyrics. This sound and unique approach to their music helped O.A.R to create a name for themselves in the music business; and develop a dedicated following of fans.
Their first album, titled Stories of a Stranger helped solidify the band’s status as a ‘jam band’ and from there the group went on to continue to release new and exciting music to their fans and experiment with new influences as they started to create a sound that is entirely their own. The band has not only gone on to find success amongst their fans but they have also had a great deal of chart success on the Billboard 200 charts.
Thanks to hit singles like “Love and Memories” “Shattered (Turn the Car Around)” and “Lay Down” the band has also found a great deal of radio and commercial success; and in 2006 when the group quickly sold out Madison Square Garden in minutes; the band proved that they had reached beyond college audiences to find a massive mainstream following. The band is also known for utilizing new and innovative approaches to get the interest of their fans, especially when they provided their fans with a free instant live recording of their concert via USB at their recent live concert event.
Decisions such as this have shown the world just how innovative this group is and just how dedicated they are to their fans. For supporters of the group who are looking to see this unique band take the stage live; they will find that the group often spends most of the year on the road touring around the country and delivering their unique style of music to their fans.
