Since winning over a national audience with their debut performances on CBS This Morning’s Singing Family Faceoff, OBB have steadily built their growing momentum and fan base into a recording deal with Curb Records and now a newly announced spot on Christian music’s annual blockbuster tour event—Winter Jam 2013.
OBB will take the stage as part of the pre-jam party along The Winter Jam Spectacular 2013 tour, kicking off January 4 at the Charleston Civic Center in Charleston, West Virginia. Other slates for OBB on the 44 city tour include major venues such as Chicago’s Sears Centre Arena, Philips Arena in Atlanta, Cincinnati’s U.S. Bank Arena, Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, the FedExForum in Memphis, the Sprint Center in Kansas City, and Charlotte’s Time Warner Cable Arena, among other leading stops before the tour wraps March 30 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.

Consisting of brothers Zach, Jacob and Nich, OBB was born several years ago as a band in their hometown of Duluth Georgia when their father David signed the teens up for a ‘battle of the band’ competition at a local church in Georgia. The brothers, who regularly perform at worship services at their church, the Passion City Church founded by Chris Tomlin and Louie and Shellie Giglio in Atlanta, were immediate fan favorites when they arrived in New York for the “Singing Family Face-Off” on CBS. “It was such an amazing experience for each of us,” notes Zach, lead singer of OBB and plays guitar. Jacob plays lead guitar and Nich rounds out the group on drums. Building on their national exposure, OBB has since appeared around the country, sharing stages with major Christian artists such as Natalie Grant, Switchfoot, Big Daddy Weave and Point of Grace.
As part of Winter Jam 2013 OBB will be a featured highlight of Christian music’s biggest tour spectacular. Earlier this year the Jam shattered it’s own record to become the #1 tour in the world (first quarter) for the second consecutive year on Pollstar’s 2012 Worldwide First Quarter Sales Chart of Top 100 Tours. Presented by Premier Productions, the event played to more than 535,000 people in a 47 market run.
This year’s Jam will headline multi-platinum artist TobyMac and will also feature RED, Matthew West, Jamie Grace, Sidewalk Prophets, NewSong, and Royal Tailor. OBB will be a much anticipated fan spotlight on Winter Jam’s Youth Music Vault Pre-Jam Party.
With Christian music’s biggest tour at the door and 2013 holding the promise of new music, OBB is holding true to their core message: “We are three brothers that love performing and look forward to encouraging others to light up their lives with God through music.”
