On tour together for the first time ever, Dispatch and O.A.R. will be joined at Ravinia by special guest G. Love. Last summer, Dispatch charted a course through the personal evolution we’ve all shared the past few years on their eighth full-length collection, Break Our Fall, where pointed introspective and empathetic lyrics meet the band’s pure and timeless blend of lean and energetic roots rock with hints of reggae, folk, and blues.
Their timely Ravinia debut is paired with the return of fellow 25-year troubadours and longtime local favorites O.A.R., whose mythic bonds with music and community have landed them not only three consecutive top-15 album debuts—most recently with 2019’s The Mighty—but features across think pieces (New York Times) and special performances (Special Olympics Opening Ceremony) that connect to the ways they give back to so many others.
Lifelong bluesman G. Love brings his “musical melting pot” (NPR) of infectious call-and-response hooks and funky sing-along choruses back to Ravinia for the first time in over a decade to open the night. A dozen albums under his belt both solo and with Special Sauce, G. Love most recently teamed up with Keb’ Mo’ on The Juice, heightening 25 years of riotous and rousing verse with hip-hop grooves with blistering guitar and sacred steel.
