OARO.A.R.’s Marc Roberge is rarely at a loss for words, but Saturday night’s show wrapping up a five-night stand in New York City brought him close. Wyclef Jean and Cris Cab joined the band onstage for a little Bob Marley.

“We went into the week of shows at the legendary Bowery Ballroom with every intention of making the trip special for our core fans.  We could never have planned for a more perfect finale than Wyclef joining us on stage Saturday night,” he said. “The crowd went crazy.  I nearly forgot where I was.”

But he hung on as they did a medley of “No Woman No Cry” and “That Was a Crazy Game of Poker.”

The band has a four-night stand in Philadelphia starting tomorrow, touring on their latest album “King” and its single, “Gotta Be Wrong Sometimes.” Fans should watch for a full summer tour to be announced soon.
