MORE ABOUT OSB
On the outskirts of the Seven Hills of Worcester Ma. a bunch of teenagers growing up together were drawn to the energy and emotional effects of music. At that time, OSB kept themselves together weekly while attending colleges in different states by traveling hours to rehearse and perform local gigs. OSB continues that same aggressive force and outrageous desire today, blowing the roofs off venues throughout the New England states.
Their high energy live performance makes every show feel like being on Spring break. Much like the Dave Matthews Band, OSB captures a diverse listening audience crossing over various genre’s and demographics in the process. Some in the industry find similarities to Pat McGee, Maroon 5, as well as Ben Folds Five. Their upbeat sound and the amazingly raw vocals of Brendan Mahoney resemble that of Gavin DeGraw. The warm melodies of Kevin Hennessey's keyboard are reminicent to that of Bruce Hornsby and Alex Attella's guitar licks are both technically and melodically successful at blending aspects of fusion blues and classic rock. Bringing it all together are the smooth grooves of Aaron Tringuk on the drums and Jeff Burtch's steady pocket bass lines. Although still young in their early twenty’s, the Pop/Rock band has a maturity and stage presence of seasoned professionals.
The driving force to their success, is the unselfish commitment as a group, as seen with the unleashing of their first release “The Grey Area”. The album’s stunning centerpiece is the epic “Mirik” with creative hooks that get imbedded in your memory forever.
In 2005, OSB continued to sell out venues inside and out of Worcester County, headlining at venues such as Tammany hall, Lucky Dog music hall, Harper’s Ferry, The Attic, Middle East, Skybar in Boston, Milly’s Tavern, The Brickhouse in New Hampshire and Kenny's Castaways, Tribeca lounge in NYC. Headlining at the New England Summer Nationals and playing many music festivals throughout the New England States. OSB also performed Live on the Fox 25 morning show in Boston. They won the Budweiser True Music battle of the bands event, walking away with the honor as 2004 Massachusetts Champions. Voted Best Pop Rock band for 2005 by Worcester magazine April 2005 issue.
