The news is out: Bell Biv DeVoe is going to be performing at Spirit Mountain Casino on Saturday, August 3! Grab your tickets and get ready to jam to your favorite 90’s hits!
Consisting of Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ron DeVoe, BBD has been bridging the gap between R&B and hip-hop music for decades. Birthed out of the 1980s vocal quintet “New Edition,” BBD brings together new jack swing and R&B harmonies to create sultry ballads, party-starting tracks, and club bangers. With platinum and gold-certified tracks, this best-selling crew will have you and your friends dancing, swinging, and bobbing your head to the music.
Pioneers of R&B
Bell Biv DeVoe boasts innovative beats and highlighted vocals that have maintained popularity since their start in the 1980s. The group has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and has a strong community of loyal fans dating back to their early years. Pairing rapping and singing together within a single verse, BBD was the first group to truly bring together doo-wop harmonies and the hardcore lyrics of ‘80s rap. Their records remained mellow and laid-back but carried more oomph than most other R&B artists at the time. Their unique blend of genres paved the way for R&B singers to allow more hip-hop influence in their tracks and to layer in multi-levels lyrics.
Smoothed out Hip-Hop
BBD’s slogan, “mentally hip-hop, smoothed-out on the R&B tip with a pop feel appeal,” speaks to the authenticity and creativity behind their music. The trio has won numerous awards, such as the 2013 Soul Train Music Awards Lifetime Achievement honor, three American Music Awards, and several Grammy nominations. This is a show you won’t want to miss, so let your friends know and grab your tickets - on sale now! Adults 21 and over. The show starts at 7 p.m., so swing by the Summit View Lounge for dinner and a cocktail beforehand!
