Marc Roberge
O.A.R. (short for Of a Revolution) is an American rock band composed of Marc Roberge (vocals, guitar), Chris Culos (drums, percussion), Richard On (guitar, backing vocals), Benj Gershman (bass guitar), and Jerry DePizzo (saxophone, guitar, snare drum kit, backing vocals). Due to massive online distribution over campus networks, the band has become a hit among college students, with many songs relating to the band members' personal lives at Thomas S. Wootton High School, growing up in Rockville, Maryland and attending The Ohio State University.

O.A.R. is well known for its live performances because the band often creates variations to songs at each concert, making it rare to hear a song played the exact same way twice. The band also incorporates jam elements in their concerts, resulting in many of their live songs running anywhere between 5 and 18 minutes each. O.A.R.'s unique concert performances have led many people to believe they are one of the top live bands today.

Jon Lampley
Jon is currently based out of Brooklyn, New York and performs/records/tours with different groups as well as working consistently as a freelance musician/arranger/composer. He is a founding member of the Huntertones, an instrumental group based in Brooklyn, New York. He is also the touring trumpet/sousaphone player and backing vocalist for the platinum selling rock band Of A Revolution (O.A.R.).

Jon is also doing part time touring trumpet with Seattle based soul singer Allen Stone. Recently, he was on the arranging team that put together music for a joint performance with O.A.R. and the Beethoven Found Symphony Orchestra of Maryland. You can also see Lampley on sousaphone touring with the Bhangra funk/go-go/party brass band Red Baraat. When he’s not performing, writing, or arranging, Jon works as a teaching artist by going into schools and educating students of all ages about playing and listening to all different styles of music.
