Best known songs: "Motownphilly," "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday," "One Sweet Day," "I'll Make Love to You" and "End of the Road."Of Note: Their song "One Sweet Day" with Mariah Carey holds the all-time record of 16 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. They rank fourth behind Elvis Presley, The Beatles and Mariah Carey for artists that have held at the No. 1 spot for at least 50 weeks cumulatively on the Billboard charts.Awards: Four Grammy awards including Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and Best R&B AlbumAudience: Fans of R&B musicVenue: Terry Fator TheatreBoyz II Men have joined the ranks of Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Santana, Guns N' Roses, Celine Dion and CeeLo Green with an extended residency in Las Vegas.The four-time Grammy Award-winning R&B group (now composed of Shawn Stockman, Nathan Morris and Wanya Morris) appears select weekends in the Terry Fator Theatre at The Mirage.  "We've been dreaming of this day since we performed an extended holiday show two years ago in Las Vegas," Morris said. "We're thrilled to start 2013 with this amazing announcement and want to thank The Mirage and everyone who has made this dream a reality for us. "Franz Kallao, vice president of hotel operations at The Mirage, said, "All of us at The Mirage are excited to welcome Boyz II Men to our resort, giving guests the opportunity to experience one of the best R&B groups in the music industry. Boyz II Men will be a wonderful complement to our renowned entertainment lineup."The group plans on singing many of their hits including "Motownphilly," "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday," "I'll Make Love to You" and "End of the Road." They also promise a few new surprises for audiences.Formed in 1988 at the Philadelphia High School of the Creative and Performing Arts, Boyz II Men, originally called Unique Attraction, comprised Nathan Morris, Marc Nelson (who soon parted ways), Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman and Michael McCary. The singers performed on street corners and subway platforms before working their way backstage at a Bell Biv DeVoe concert in 1989 and impressing Michael Bivins, who offered them a deal.After signing with Motown Records, Boyz II Men debuted with "Cooleyhighharmony" in 1991 and scored platinum sales thanks to the hits "Motownphilly" and "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday." The album earned the group its first Grammy — Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. In 1992, the Boyz II Men song "End of the Road," which was featured on the "Boomerang" soundtrack, stayed at No. 1 for 13 weeks and beat Elvis Presley's 11-week run with "Don't Be Cruel/Hound Dog."The harmonizing foursome continued its success with its next album, "II," which was released in 1994 and debuted at No. 1. The single "I'll Make Love to You" stayed at No. 1 for 14 weeks. The group spent the better part of 1995 touring but found time to break records again with a collaboration with Mariah Carey called "One Sweet Day," which spent 16 weeks at No. 1 on the pop charts.The next few albums didn't find as much success, but fans still supported their Boyz. "Evolution" was released in 1997 and featured the hits "4 Seasons of Loneliness" and "A Song for Mama," and "Nathan Michael Shawn Wanya" was released in 2000.Boyz II Men again hit the studio and released "Full Circle" in 2002. The following year, bass singer Michael McCary left the group in 2003 due to chronic back problems.The group released "Throwback" in 2004 and a Christmas album, "Winter/Reflections," in 2005. Boyz II Men's 2007 album, "The Remedy," not only included a CD of entirely new music, but an additional CD of the group's most popular hits re-recorded. In 2009 they released the album "Love."The group has sold more than 60 million records throughout their illustrious career. They continue to release new albums. Most recently their 2012 album "Twenty" hit No. 1 on Billboard's R&B Soul Album chart.

You don't need to pack any bags for this excursion, but you may want to wear some comfortable shoes for toe-tapping."Let us take you down to an old dirt road," says a pre-recorded announcement before impersonators portraying some of the biggest names in country music along with up-and-coming acts take the stage in Country Superstars. This show gives fans plenty to write home about. Country Superstars has a concert-style format, showcasing a main performer singing with a live five-piece band. The show features tribute artists singing your favorite songs and emulating an uncanny likeness to the real performers.Country Superstars has a rotating lineup of tribute artists. On the night the show was attended the headlining tribute acts were Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw and Garth Brooks. The performers do an incredible job of re-creating the look, sound and feel of the artists they portray. Each one performed a selection of greatest hit songs with all live music. There are no backing tracks or lip synching in this revue. The show opens with McEntire's performance of "Turn On The Radio." She also acts as the show's spunky and sassy host. Things get a little "Strange" before McEntire belts out you can "Consider Me Gone."Wearing his signature black cowboy hat, the tribute artist portraying Tim McGraw does fans justice with his rendition of songs including "Real Good Man," "Something Like That (A Heart Don't Forget)" and "Down on the Farm." The performer is a real "tall glass of water," as McEntire puts it. He gives fans, especially women in the audience, plenty to cheer about while he's on stage.Next, Brooks takes audiences by storm with his performance of "The Thunder Rolls," "Friends In Low Places" and "Rodeo." Part tribute show, part concert, Country Superstars celebrates music from the past, present and future. Get ready to get down with the best in country music at this revue.-- By Caroline FonteinNote: This show features a rotating cast of country superstars, not a guaranteed line-up.

Vintage Vegas with a twistBy Caroline FonteinLas Vegas was built on pure, raw talent. That's producer David Saxe's stance and the concept behind his new creation VEGAS! The Show at Saxe Theater. The show celebrates iconic moments from the city's rich entertainment history through the performances of 40 singers and dancers and 11 musicians.Born into a show business family, Saxe grew up watching some of the great acts that made Vegas what it is today - the Entertainment Capital of the World. His dad was a bandleader for some of the biggest performers on the Las Vegas Strip, including the Rat Pack, while his mom was a dancer in "Folies Bergere" at the Tropicana. She performed even while she was pregnant with Saxe in 1969.When he was 17, Saxe became the youngest producer in Vegas when he launched his sister's show, Melinda the First Lady of Magic. During the past 20 years he has produced more than 100 shows. He currently has 13 shows in production at Saxe Theater and his other venue V-Theater, both located at the Miracle Miles Shops at Planet Hollywood.As someone who grew up loving everything about Vegas entertainment, VEGAS! The Show is a way for Saxe to celebrate the city's colorful past with audiences today.VEGAS! The Show opens with a custodian named Ernie who works at the neon sign graveyard. Clad in a blue jumpsuit, Ernie reminisces about some of the most memorable entertainers who played Vegas. Behind him is a lavish set piece resembling some of the neon signs that once graced the Strip, including signs for the Glass Pool Inn, the Silver Slipper and the Sands."For one night only, we want you to suspend reality and join us on a journey back in time to experience some of the greatest entertainers who ever played Vegas," says Ernie.Meanwhile the stage transforms into a classic Vegas showgirl routine. Along with the showgirls, men wearing tuxedos and women in gowns take the stage for a glamorous song and dance number choreographed by Tiger Martina."We want to share with you the moments and the memories of that gleaming jewel in the desert," says Ernie who both acts as the master of ceremonies and performs as various entertainers from the past.The scene changes to a swingin' number with Louis Prima and Keely Smith before transitioning to the 1960s when the Rat Pack played the Copa Room at the Sands. Throughout the show the stage is constantly transforming into a new and exciting scene with dazzling costumes, incredible singing and contemporary choreography. Each scene represents a vintage Vegas act, but Martina's high-energy choreography, paired with innovative production elements, portrays these iconic entertainers with a new twist.For example, Sammy Davis Jr.'s "The Candy Man" starts with a performer singing the song solo before being joined by a parade of showgirls. Dressed in fitted outfits with silver ruffles that say "Good & Plenty" "Almond Joy" and other candy names, the dancers throw out chocolate and other goodies to people in the audience during the song. It's a pretty sweet number.The scene quickly changes to another memorable Vegas act. While iconic entertainers are represented in the show, the performers aren't tribute artists. This is most apparent during the Elvis numbers.Most people probably expect to see a white jumpsuit and a dark pompadour with side burns when it comes to Elvis, but not in this show."Yeah I know, I'm blond," says the performer representing Elvis.He jokes with the audience, letting people know that what he and the other performers are doing isn't about emulating every aspect of famous entertainers. Instead they're celebrating the performers and what they might be like if there were still around today."The heart of the city is gambling but the soul is music," says Ernie before performers representing Sonny and Cher appear on stage singing "I Got You Babe."Along with all the song and dance numbers, the show also has a little magic. Seasoned magician Joseph Gabriel performs later on in the show. He amazes the audience with his sleight-of-hand magic, transforming scarves into doves and a macaw parrot.Toward the end of the show, the audience is treated to an Elton John tribute. A performer wearing a white suit and large glasses takes a seat at a white piano situated on stage in front of the curtain. As he sings "Rocket Man," video footage of vintage Vegas is displayed on the curtains. Some of the images are of the original acts that were just performed on stage, while others depict casinos in Vegas that have been imploded over the years. The video clip reminds everyone that while the landscape may have changed, the city is still home to fantastic entertainment with glitz and glamour that can only be found in Vegas.

 Legends in Concert at Harrahs
Legends in Concert at Harrahs
A night to rememberStaff ReportWith more than 25 years of success on the Las Vegas Strip, Legends in Concert has become a mecca for tribute artists around the world. The show features only the creme de la creme of performers who pay tribute to the most iconic entertainers in the world.If you missed seeing the real Elvis when he was still alive or another favorite entertainer the last time they were in Vegas, Legends in Concert is the next best thing. Aside from the holiday show Legends in Concert has an alternating cast so you never know who you are going to see grace the stage next. On the night the show was attended, Jay Leno, Barry White, Dolly Parton, Madonna, The Temptations and Elvis performed. It's the only show where you can see a line up of some of the best talent in the world from both the individuals as impersonators and the characters that they become for the night.Jay Leno, played by Marcel Forestieri, is the show's emcee. He opens with a few jokes inspired by current events, much like the real Leno, before announcing the first performer, Barry White.Barry White, played by Jourdan Carroll, enters the stage singing "You're the First, the Last, My Everything." Carroll has an uncanny resemblance to the real White from his beard and smile to his velvety smooth, deep and soulful voice."Your sweetness is my weakness," says Carroll to the audience before performing his last song, "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe."Along with Carroll, there are several dancers on stage who add to the show's signature of featuring only the crème de la crème. They accompany all of the entertainers in the show and do constant costume changes into different outfits themed by each performer and their songs.A spunky Dolly Parton, played by Sandy Anderson, is the next act. She displays all of the songstress's notable assets, from her big blonde hair to her red lips and of course, her voice.After her first song she walks out into the audience to have a little flirtatious fun with some of the male guests before singing, "Why'd You Come in Here Lookin' Like That." It is a fun, upbeat number with cowboy dancers in tight white jeans and cowboy hats, a sure hit for women in the audience."Like a Prayer," starts and Madonna, played by Coty Alexander, enters the stage wearing a black cloak, but it is not long before the cloak is removed to reveal the well- known cone bust ensemble and high blonde pony tail.For "Like A Virgin" she wears a white veil and brings a guy from the audience on stage. By the end of the song he is left with ruffled hair and needing to straighten and de-fog his glasses. A medley of Madonna's greatest hits follows where an ensemble of dancers joins her on stage for a high energy number where they really "strike a pose."The Temptations, played by Nathaniel Evans Radcliff, Talmadge Pearsall, Gregory Dean Lee, Ritchie Stanley and Reginald Reed, take the stage wearing sparkling purple suits and singing their greatest hits. They have rhythm and soul and the signature dance movements of the Temptations that they demonstrate in perfect sync with one another.As the hits keep coming, the audience becomes increasingly impassioned by the performers and before you know it everyone is singing along and dancing in their seats.Elvis Presley, played by Matt Lewis is the final act. He first comes out wearing an outfit that represents the entertainer earlier on in his career. Lewis' voice sounds so remarkably like the real Elvis that even the most devout fans could be fooled.For "A Little Less Converstion" he wears a black suit with a rhinestone trim that dazzles the audience along with his pelvis thrusting and smooth sounding voice.He stops singing for a moment to say, "Thank you, thank you very much." His speaking voice and mannerisms are everything you would expect from the real Elvis.Finally what everyone is waiting for, Lewis appears on stage wearing the iconic white and jewel-studded jumpsuit that the original performer sported when he first came to Vegas in 1969. More great Elvis hits are performed and Lewis really cuts loose, embracing all of the passion and vigor of the real performer."Viva Las Vegas," includes beautiful showgirls in dazzling white and silver costumes and a flashing neon Elvis sign. It is an exciting spectacular that is the epitome of everything Vegas.Legends in Concert is a fun opportunity to see legendary performers on stage again in their prime singing and dancing in the same way that first made you a fan.
