Five for Fighting with String Quartet
Sep 14 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Never has the phrase ‘he shoots, he scores’ been more applicable than when mentioning rabid hockey fan and chart-topping singer/songwriter John Ondrasik. The Los Angeles native, who goes by Five for Fighting (a five-minute penalty for on-the-ice fist-a-cuffs), burst on the scene some 15 years ago with his Grammy Award-nominated hit ‘Superman (It’s Not Easy),’ and has been a mainstay on mainstream radio ever since. While he doesn’t wear tights and fight crime as his breakthrough track ‘Superman’ suggests, his songs could bring any maniacal villain to their knees (and tears) with his poignantly sharp songs that cut deeper than a Ginsu knife.

Ondrasik signed his first deal in 1997 with ‘Message For Albert,’ but it was his follow-up ‘American Town’ that really took flight for Fighting. The aforementioned ‘Superman (It’s Not Easy)’ went Platinum (as did the album), was #1 on Adult Top 40, #2 on Hot AC, and in the Top 40 Top 10. The song actually hit the airwaves, and reached #1 the same week his daughter Olivia was born. Not too shabby as Adam Sandler once said. Adding more fuel to the emotional fire, the mega-hit served as sort of an unofficial anthem following the 9.11 attacks on American soil. Naturally, he performed it at The Concert For New York City.

In his career, Ondrasik has sold over 2.5 million albums including 2004’s ‘Battle for Everything,’ which spawned the 2X platinum ‘100 Years,’ which continues to melt hearts, provide all ages with an instant case of nostalgia. Other hits have included ‘The Riddle,’ ‘World,’ ‘Chances’ and ‘What If.’ His music has been featured in 350 films, TV shows and advertisements ranging from the ‘The Blind Side’ to ‘Hawaii Five-O.’ He has also written tunes for everyone from Josh Groban to The Backstreet Boys.
