LAS VEGAS - March 18, 2013 - The Eastside Cannery Hotel and Casino will be rocking and rolling on March 31st at 7:00 p.m. to the legendary Oak Ridge Boys.

The Oak Ridge Boys are an American country and gospel vocal quartet.The group was founded in the 1940s as the Oak Ridge Quartet. They became popular in southern gospel during the 1950s. Their name was officially changed to the Oak Ridge Boys in the early 1960s, and they remained a gospel-oriented group until the mid-1970s, when they changed their image and concentrated on country music.

In 1981, the Oak Ridge Boys’ double platinum single “Elvira” soared up the Billboard country and pop radio charts, settling the matter for good, and paving the way for thirty more albums, including hits like “Thank God For Kids”, “You’re the One”, “Dream On”, and many more!

During the first decade of the new millennium, The Oak Ridge Boys continued to receive numerous awards and recognitions: Induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame; two more Dove Awards, for a total of eight career Doves; the Pioneer Award from the Academy of Country Music; the Silver Buffalo award from the Boy Scouts of America; a six-month exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame; and the Fame Award from the MENC (National Association for Music Educators) in recognition of the group’s work as Musical Ambassadors for the three-year National Anthem Project.
