LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — O.A.R. frontman Marc Roberge joined The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan Friday morning in advance of the band’s Heard the World Benefit Concert at Strathmore Hall.

Proceeds from the Dec. 14 show will benefit music education in Youngstown, Ohio, where saxophonist Jerry DePizzo was born and raised, and Beethoven Found’s Tribute to the Wounded Warrior.

“Love to make sure that any attention possible is given to our vets and our wounded,” Roberge told the Junkies.

The Beethoven Found Philharmonic will join the band onstage for the show, which has been dubbed ‘An Evening with O.A.R.’

The concert is a homecoming of sorts for the group. Four of its members attended Wootton High School in Rockville, a short drive from where they will perform.

Concert tickets may be purchased at Strathmore.org.

The band has sold nearly two million albums since it was founded in 1996.

In 2011, the band had their most successful commercial release to date with “King.” The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Digital Album Chart as well as on iTunes.
