The Oak Ridge Boys, a group that features one of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds in the music industry, will be in Shaunavon for the 23rd Annual Jamboree held inside the Crescent Point Wickenheiser Centre on the August long weekend (Aug. 1-3, 2014.)
The FRGJ also announced that Canadian country star Jason Blaine will also be appearing as a headlining act.
“When the idea of the Frenchman River Gospel Jam (FRGJ) being able to attract a group like The Oak Ridge Boys, you could say the Board was a little excited” says Joel Sopp, the jamboree’s Director of Promotions and Advertising. “And then we received word about booking a Canadian Country Star like Jason Blaine, and we knew we would have a fantastic line up for 2014.”
Some other acts returning include last year’s high energy Link Union, the hilarious comedy trio of 3-2-1 Improv, and many others.
“We truly believe that FRGJ is being recognized by world renowned musical artists as a viable and legitimate venue in the jamboree circuit. God is doing great things in Shaunavon, and we are humbled to be a part of this amazing opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the story of Salvation.”
The Oak Ridge Boys have a strong connection to gospel music and the band was originally formed as a gospel group.
The Oak Ridge Boys have sold millions of records and toured across the globe.
The Oak Ridge Boys have spawned dozens of Country hits and a Number One Pop smash, earned them Grammy, Dove, CMA, and ACM awards and garnered a host of other industry and fan accolades.
Some of their most well-known country and crossover hits include “Elvira”, “Bobbie Sue”, and “American Made.”
