- Set 1:
Entire show with MikelParis on keys, percussion, and vocals.
* with Ben Brown on guitar.
Reviews I've seen OAR both times when playing the Ryman, and this show was extremely good. The new stuff has a whole new life to it live. The best "new" live song is Lay Down. Great energy, drums and keyboards from Michael Paris. I was a tad disappointed in the setlist, but they played it incredibly. At one point in time, someone threw a paper airplane onto the stage and Marc read it and said, "We'd play Bonnaroo again if they asked us." All in all, a good show, but the other Ryman show beat because of the setlist. -xwhizx February 23, 2006
The setlist was great 59th street folling city on down following black rock...I've seen them 3 times this week and black rock was just awesome and Jerry killed city on down just wonderful...very nice great show -TheClap00 February 23, 2006
Show was fun....Ryman is just cool, plain and simple. Guys seemed to be enjoying themselves...interactive with the audience at times....opening acts were good too. Hatch Show Print for O.A.R a must have!!!! Hatch Shows Prints are part of Ryman history... www.hatchshowprint.com -runnergirl February 23, 2006
Amazing show - my sixth, and right up there as one of the best. I thought the setlist was extraordinary - hit the main ones I wanted to hear - and Delicate Few was one that really surprised me, it was the best I've heard of that song. Poker wasn't anything special, City on Down was really awesome - and Dakota is really turning out to be a solid live song. -gtwrecked February 23, 2006
Great show overall. Any show would be great at the historical Ryman Auditorium. Me and my gf were in the 7th row but there is no bad seats in the Ryman. The energy was pretty good could have been better but when you tour as much as them its hard to go all out for every single show. I got the setlist after the show only because before I left I was thinking of ED telling everyone to grab a setlist, so i did hahaha. The Ryman print was pretty nice, and cheap, beers were huge but 8 bucks. It was all worth it in the end.

by far one of the best shows i have been to. does anyone remember during dakota the girl throwing the peace necklace, and marc hanging it on the drum set? i was that girl! :) how happy was i he talked to me like that? dakota is special to me, lennon is my idol! the energy of the music that night was indescribable...maybe because of all the liquor and pot, who knows! good vibes after the show with other fans talking to the band too. -oarfan420 March 22, 2007
