country. Recently inducted into the Grand Band Slam Hall Of Fame for
Best Cover Band (as voted perennially by the readers of the Valley
Advocate) "O.C." performs at clubs, on campuses and for public & private

Bassist Rich Yirga keeps the bottom end locked down. Drummer Tom
Kielbania JR supplies energy and non-stop flow, and Lead Vocalist Scott
Lawson is the heart and soul of the group with his strong stage
Formed in Chicopee, Massachusetts in 1996, Orange Crush initially started
performing as an REM tribute band (taking that bands song "Orange Crush" as
their identifying moniker). With the arrival of a new Millennium, the band had
started reshaping it's set list to focus on dance-heavy smash hits from various
'80s recording artists.
Playing shows at local clubs had resulted in a strong following, and as the band
won their first (of what would later be many) Best Cover Band awards, they often
found themselves taking to the road to tour colleges. The band has toured the
majority of the Central and Southern United States, has opened for such acts as
Reel Big Fish, Guster, Young Love, KRS1, OK Go! and continues to add to it's
ever-growing fan base.
Today, O.C. performs at clubs, colleges, conventions, corporate events, town
green/park and recreation concerts, weddings, boat tours, private parties, fairs
and festivals - all of which makes
them the perfect band for any occasion for people of any age.

"Orange Crush is in tune with what the Middlebury students want to hear, and
frontman Scott Lawson makes this apparent by creating a sense of presence and
responsiveness unrivaled by most campus bands. Many students feel as though he
is representing the audience and he does this with an air of affability. At the
beginning of every song, you can hear the audience cheering as they recognize
the intro to a favorite hit."- Middlebury Campus.com '05
