One of Maryland's most popular bands, O.A.R., will perform twice at Sunday's Ravens game.
The rock quintet from Rockville will first perform at RavensWalk, the area between parking lots B and C, at 11:15 a.m. on Sunday for fans tailgating and walking into the stadium, according to a Ravens news release. At halftime, the band will perform on the field.
Founded in 1996 while its members were still students at Wootton High School, O.A.R. (Of a Revolution) has built a large fanbase through eight albums and steady touring around the world. In June 2014, the group released "The Rockville LP," which was inspired partly by the band's return to Maryland the previous Thanksgiving.
"You do recharge your batteries and you come with a fire," singer Marc Roberge told The Baltimore Sun last year about the effect the trip to Rockville had on the band. "Right now, we're going all guns blazing." (Read the 2014 feature on the band here.)
The RavensWalk area opens at 10 a.m., and the team's game against the Seattle Seahawks begins at 1 p.m.
