Five Major Concerts Coming To Saban Theatre

 


Five concerts that you don't want to miss are landing at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills in the month of March.

On March 5, original vocalist and current member Henry Fambrough and his Spinners will be delighting the audience with their sophisticated, up-tempo R&B songs and precision choreography that made them famous.

With over 60 million records sold over their illustrious career, they have performed for Presidents, received six Grammy nominations, and have appeared on Soul Train and many other TV shows.

Here are a few of their eighteen Solid Gold Top 40 hits that they will perform - "Working My Way Back To You Girl," "Cupid," "The Rubberband Man," among many others.

Then, on March 10, Blue Oyster Cult (BOC) will be thrilling fans with their hard rock, which they've been doing worldwide for over four decades. They are revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work, creating powerful albums loaded with classic songs.

BOC is unique in that they are one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands in rock history to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim, as well as commercial success. Upon the release of their self-titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy music and lyrics.

BOC's canon includes three classic songs that will continue to waft through the cosmos - "(Don't Fear) The Reaper," "Godzilla," and "Burnin' for You."

On March 11, take a trip back in time to the glamorous, ritzy nights of Las Vegas in the late 1950's and '60's where you will experience "The Rat Pack" (Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. & Dean Martin) performing at the famous Sands hotel. These three accomplished tribute singers will be singing all of their hits - "The Lady is a Tramp," "Mr. Bojangles," "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime," among many others.

The Dazz Band and Tom Browne make a landing on March 18. Cleveland-based Dazz band was one of the more popular funk groups of the early '80's. The original concept for the group was "danceable jazz," which was shortened to "dazz," but the band veered away from the more melodic pop-oriented dance music and started playing tougher, more groove-oriented funk. That's when they began racking up the big hits.

"Let It Whip," taken from their second album "Keep It Live (1982), reached number five and won a Grammy Award for Best Performance by an R&B Vocal Duo or Group. They had a string of six consecutive Top 100 albums and scored two other Top 100 singles with "Joystick" and "Let It All Blow."

Browne scored two major hits in 1980 and 1981 with the number one US Billboard R&B single "Funkin' for Jamaica (N.Y.) and the number four US R&B single "Thighs High (Grip Your Hips and Move)."

Then, the legendary Pat Boone, with a surprise appearance by four singing daughters (The Boone Girls), including Debby Boone, will grace the stage on March 25 singing all of his greatest hits.

Boone's resume speaks for itself and he needs no introduction.

Singer, actor, TV host, producer, songwriter, author, motivational speaker, TV pitchman, radio personality, record company head, TV station owner, sports team owner, family man, and humanitarian. He's done it all and his career continues to thrive.

With five decades of recording history, Boone is the #10 all-time top recording artist, according to music industry bible, Billboard. He was the second-biggest charting artist of the late 1950's, behind only Elvis Presley.
