NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 10, 2014) – Theirs is one of the most distinctive and viagra original pfizer order recognizable sounds in the music industry.

“Like everyone else in the group,” adds bass singer extraordinaire, Richard Sterban, “I was a fan of the Oaks before I became a member. I’m still a fan of the group today. Being in The Oak Ridge Boys is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.”
From February 22 through March 1, The Oak Ridge Boys are at sea with about 400 fans, family, and friends aboard the Celebrity Reflection. I will try to somewhat chronicle the event on the following pages if I can stop eating long enough to type! (JSB)
The Celebrity Reflection is quite the boat. The ancient mariners could have never envisioned such a ship moving across the sea through the night with 3000 passengers eating and cialis brand name drinking and cheap cialis online dancing and vacationing, while a crew of what must easily be another 1000 looks after and protects each one of us.
THIS is The Oak Ridge Boys’ second Rally-at-Sea cruise. A weeklong trip that will take us to San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas, USVI; and the incredible island of St. Martin, before returning to Miami.
The Boys will sing, fellowship, take pictures, and do our best to reward these folks who have spent a good deal of money to be here with us for a great Oak Ridge Boys experience. They will see sides of us rarely ever seen, and fun will abound… That is the plan, and we are up for it big time, as this wonderful cruise is a great respite for us, as well, from our grueling touring schedule.
But tonight I reflect a bit upon this first day. The checking in process and getting our bags and so forth are all behind us now and, after a welcome to the folks and a great dinner, I find myself a bit exhausted and in my cabin, gazing out upon the passing sea.
Tomorrow is a day “at sea,” and we will perform a Gospel music flavored show in the early afternoon. But again… tonight? A good night’s sleep and a bit of Reflection… no pun intended.
I am alone on this trip. My daughters, Jennifer and Sabrina, were with me last year and this time around my wife, Mary, was in the plan. But as we got closer she bailed on me. She is home tonight with the cats as I cruise across the Atlantic, and I must admit I am a bit lonely here sitting outside as the ocean passes beneath me.
