The Oak Ridge Boys will give an intimate concert at Packard Music Hall at 7:30 p.m. Monday, as part of their Shine The Light Tour.
With four-part harmonies and upbeat songs, the Oak Ridge Boys have one of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds in the music industry.
The act, in its fourth decade, has dozens of country music hits, a pop smash for its 1981 song “Elvira,” and Grammy, Dove, CMA and ACM awards.
“When I go on stage, I get the same feeling I had the first time I sang with The Oak Ridge Boys,” said lead singer Duane Allen. “This is the only job I’ve ever wanted to have.”
“Like everyone else in the group,” said bass singer Richard Sterban, “I was a fan of the Oaks before I became a member. I’m still a fan of the group today.”
Tenor Joe Bonsall and baritone William Lee Golden complete the legendary vocal quartet.
The Oak Ridge Boys other hits include “Bobbie Sue,” “Dream On,” “Thank God For Kids,” “American Made,” “I Guess It Never Hurts To Hurt Sometimes” and “Fancy Free.”
The group has scored 12 gold, three platinum, and one double platinum album – plus one double platinum single – and had more than a dozen national No. 1 singles and more than 30 top 10 hits.
