Hello UA class of 1979 and all friends of the band. We are working hard to pull together a great show for you in January. Right now I’m posting lots of old “Oswald And The Herringbones Live” shows in case you are not familiar with our music. You can find the tunes and download them free at the blue links on the right side of this page —->

Anything that says OATH is also Oswald And The Herringbones. I’ll be posting about 8 or nine more “Live” gigs soon. Each one is a little different and even though we repeat many of the tunes from show to show, there are usually a few new or stray ones which are not on each set list.

Please remember these are all old “board mixes” from shows in the Big Eighties, which means they are not professionally produced they were just taped (yes, on cassettes, remember those?) directly off the sound board at some of our live concerts.

I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we had fun playing them back then. The January Reunion Gig will be posted as soon as we know the venue.

God bless you all, and thanks for thinking of us!

OATH At Band Practice

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

This video click here, is us (Oswald And The Herringbones) practicing for a gig in 2007. We were at the Spruce Street Studios in downtown Columbus, Ohio (owned by a friend of Neal’s named “Chip”). Chip was very kind to us, and let us do a quick gig there the following night. This is the night before the actual gig so we were just taking it easy. Don’t expect too much of a show because no one is there but us. Mike McGraner was kind enough to film this archival footage for us so I thought I would post it showing with us with our hair down (so to say). Mike McGraner is doing some excellent work with Fritz The Nite Owl. You should check his stuff out on Facebook at:
Anyway we will be gearing up for the big January 2011 OATH Reunion Gig so get ready!
God bless you all!
