Right after Halloween, many across the Gulf Coast begin planning for Christmas, decorating trees and stringing outdoor lights even before the Thanksgiving turkey hits the table. The Golden Nugget in Biloxi is following suit with a seasonal performance by The Oak Ridge Boys. The group’s breakout hit “Elvira” helped propel their beautiful four-part harmony into the national spotlight. Almost three decades later, The Oak Ridge Boys are still recording and performing for their devoted audience.
The group will perform tracks from their new holiday album, “Christmas Time’s A-Comin,’” to get the Golden Nugget crowd into the spirit of the season. Even though this is a holiday album, The Oak Ridge Boys are using its release to bring their country legacy into today’s world. The album is filled with classic country harmonies mixed with modern production and arrangements. This combination of old and new truly creates a timeless experience for Oak Ridge Boys fans across generations.
