Richard Sterban to Make Elvis Week Appearance
July 26, 2012
We’re excited to announce that Richard Sterban
has joined the lineup for Conversations on Elvis - In the Studio
on August 18 at 1:00 p.m. at the Elvis Week Main Stage Entertainment Pavilion at Graceland.
Sterban toured with J. D. Sumner and the Stamps Quartet and sang backup for Elvis early in his career. He joined The Oak Ridge Boys in 1972 and ultimately became famous for his "oom-pa-pa-oom-pa-pa-mau-mau" bass solo in the Oak Ridge Boys' 1981 smash hit, "Elvira." In addition to touring with The Oak Ridge Boys and enjoying his passions of baseball and biking, Richard is also the “voice” for the Classic Country channel on Sirius XM.
Hosted by Tom Brown
, Vice President of Original Productions for Turner Classic Movies, all the guests will share their memories of what it was like inside the recording studio with Elvis. Other special guests will be Wayne Jackson of the Memphis Horns
(trumpet), David Briggs
(piano), Norbert Putnam
(bass) and Chip Young
(guitar). Tickets are $20. To purchase, call Graceland Reservations at 800-238-2000 or 901-332-3322, or click here to purchase online
