With special guest Riker and the Beachcombers | The Might Fall Tour
O.A.R. brings The Mighty Fall Tour to The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts on November 17.
With a career spanning over twenty years, sold-out engagements at both Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks Amphitheater, millions of albums sold over the course of 9 full-length albums, and multiple chart-busting entries, O.A.R. embarks on a fall tour with their latest release, “The Mighty.”
The Maryland quintet consists of Marc Roberge [lead vocals, rhythm guitar], Richard On [lead guitar, backing vocals], Chris Culos [drums], Benj Gershman [bass], and Jerry DePizzo [saxophone, guitar, backing vocals, additionally Mikel Paris [keys, backing vocals, percussion] and Jon Lampley [trumpet, backing vocals].
“Our hope is everyone leaves our show feeling better than when they got there,” says Culos. “We make that happen by playing together as a unit, playing with a pulse. Through that pulse, we tell our story. It’s about friends and family - our brotherhood. The Mighty refers to our foundation."
Since their emergence in 1996, the musicians have tirelessly delivered a signature brand of rock steeped in alternative scope, roots tradition, and pop ambition. Among many highlights, 2008’s All Sides yielded the platinum single “Shattered” and bowed in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 a space they continually occupied with King  and The Rockville LP .
Beyond packing arenas and amphitheaters coast to coast, they’ve given inspiring performances on The Today Show, CONAN, the 2015 Special Olympics Opening Ceremony, the ESPYS, in addition to playing their hit song “Peace” at the coveted Times Square New Year’s Eve Celebration on the eve of 2016.
