Duane Allen Interview: The Oak Ridge Boys Celebrate 30 Years of ‘Elvira’

Taylortown, Texas native Duane Allen is the lead singer of the gospel/country/pop quartet the Oak Ridge Boys. Having had formal training in both operatic and quartet singing, he joined the group in 1966.

Allen is credited with keeping the Oaks on firm financial footing during their switch from gospel to country in the late 1970s. He loves to find new music for the band and over the past decade has taken on the role of producer.

“There’s not much we could do with ‘Elvira’ vocally. We wanted to protect the integrity of the song and not really change it that much. What we did want to do is take out the horns, which pretty well dated the song for the 80s.”

The Oaks’ lineup consists of Allen, William Lee Golden (baritone who also joined in the mid-1960s), Richard Sterban (bass), and Joe Bonsall (tenor). Bonsall and Sterban joined in the early 1970s.
