Multi-platinum-selling alt-rock band O.A.R. will return to KettleHouse Amphitheater on August 14, 2024 with special guests Fitz and The Tantrums and DJ Logic.
O.A.R., originating from Rockville, MD, has been steadily cultivating a devoted fan base since their inception in the 90s. The band has sold out Madison Square Garden, filled Red Rocks Amphitheater a dozen times and lit up the Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration. The band’s success extends beyond the stage, with two of their popular singles, “Love and Memories” and “Peace,” as well as the live album Any Time Now, attaining gold status. The hit song “Shattered” even reached platinum status. They’ve also made a significant impact through philanthropy, notably with their Heard The World Fund and the memorable Concert For Dreams in 2018.
Both O.A.R. and Fitz and The Tantrums have previously sold out the Amp on separate occasions. O.A.R. packed the house in 2022 with Dispatch (photos), as did Fitz and The Tantrums in 2022 with Andy Grammer (photos). Once again, we imagine that tickets will move pretty quickly, so grab yours ASAP!

For over 25 years, O.A.R. have embodied the kind of joyfully communal spirit that’s transcendent for both artist and audience alike. Since forming in Maryland in 1996, the multi-platinum-selling band have merged their musical DNA into a free-flowing sound and exhilarating live show, repeatedly selling out legendary venues like Madison Square Garden thanks to their massively devoted community of fans. In a thrilling new chapter for the ever-evolving collective, O.A.R.’s tenth studio album The Arcade marks their most collaborative effort yet: a boldly unpredictable body of work that fully showcases the extraordinary expanse of their singular musicality.
“From the beginning, this band has been about people with different influences and different styles of playing coming together to tell stories through songs based on my lyrics,” says O.A.R. lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Marc Roberge, whose bandmates include Richard On (lead guitar, backing vocals), Chris Culos (drums), Benj Gershman (bass), Jerry DePizzo (saxophone, guitar, backing vocals), MikelParis (keys, backing vocals, percussion), and Jon Lampley (trumpet, backing vocals). “Over the years our family has grown to the point where we’ve got seven musicians adding their flavor to the performances, and it felt like the perfect time to really lean into that collaborative spirit on the records, try new things, and celebrate the music we love.” Continue reading…
