Those “powerhouse pipes” from Rinehart will function as a key ingredient to the band’s newest endeavor—their first-ever acoustic live album, Acoustic Live Vol. 1. The 12-song collection was entirely self-recorded last year across the band’s first-ever fully acoustic tour and features commentary between tracks that transports listeners directly into the audience. One of the numerous standout moments featured on the record include the band’s retelling of their first meeting with friends Drew & Ellie Holcomb, followed by a surprise appearance by the duo at NEEDTOBREATHE’s sold-out performance at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

Singing with the Big Bands

Ticket Prices: $15 plus tax and applicable fees for general admission
Artist Info: Part velvet, part grave, and all taut emotion, Mark O Toole’s voice seems ideally suited to perform the songs of Barry Manilow. His love of performing began early in life, with leading roles at The Boston Children’s Theatre. His first exposure to the national limelight came from his dead-on impression of a matronly grandmother. As a favor, he would call his friend, a DJ on WVBF-FM in Boston, and pretend to be his friend’s grandmother. As fate would have it, Jay Thomas, a regular on “Cheers” and “Murphy Brown,” heard Mark while in Boston and asked him to be a regular on his radio show in Hollywood. Following three years on the radio, O’Toole moved to Las Vegas and soon appeared on “Star Search,” where his rendition of Conway Twitty’s “It’s Only Make Believe” beat out a five-time winner.

Fronted by George Frayne (Commander Cody), the band released their debut album, Lost in the Ozone, in 1971. The album peaked at 82 on the Billboard 200 chart and featured a cover of the 1955 song “Hot Rod Lincoln,” which reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Their first big show as Sublime with Rome was in October 2009 at Cypress Hill’s annual Smokeout Festival where they performed in front of 20,000 people. A sold-out tour in March 2010 led to Sublime with Rome entering the studio to begin recording its debut album Yours Truly, released in the summer of 2011. Songs like “Panic,” “Take It Or Leave” and “You Better Listen” are reminiscent of vintage Sublime, while songs like “Lover’s Rock” and “Murdera” pick up on the reggae dancehall style the band began exploring in 1996. Bringing things full circle, the band’s first performance of 2012 was at the Smokeout Festival where they were joined by celebrated drummer and longtime friend Josh Freese. To make up for lost time, the trio plans to stay out on the road as long as they can. For more information about the band, visit
