(Battle Creek, MI.) Sep. 21, 2017 – FireKeepers Casino Hotel is excited to spread holiday cheer on Thursday, December 14 by bringing the Oak Ridge Boys Christmas Celebration to their intimate event center.

“Christmas shows like the one presented by the Oak Ridge Boys are getting more difficult to identify each year,” said Jim Wise, Vice President of Marketing at Firekeepers Casino Hotel. “This traditional performance will get you in the holiday spirit in a very special way.”
Known for their iconic and multi-platinum selling hit “Elvira,” along with other chart-toppers like “Bobbie Sue,” “Thank God for Kids,” and “Leaving Louisiana in The Broad Daylight,” The Oak Ridge Boys have achieved a decorated career, winning five GRAMMY® Awards, and multiple CMA, ACM and Dove Awards for their cross-over brand of pop, country and gospel music that spans multiple generations.
Made up of members Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban, whose unmistakable bass on the lyric “oom poppa, mow mow,” has become one of music’s most recognized sing-alongs on an international scale, The Oak Ridge Boys are members of the Grand Ole Opry and achieved arguably country music’s highest honor in October 2015 when they were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
