April 1-5 & 8-12
MARILYN McCOO & BILLY DAVIS, JR.
Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr. have enjoyed tremendous success over the last four decades as recording artists, performers and authors. They have received seven Grammy Awards and earned 15 gold and three platinum records, and enjoyed starring roles on television and stage. Both as a duo and as lead vocalists of The 5th Dimension, one of the most popular singing groups in the late 60s and early 70s, they have performed to sold-out concerts around the world. Among their top hits are Up, Up & Away, Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In, Wedding Bell Blues, One Less Bell to Answer, Stones Soul Picnic and You Don’t Have to Be a Star (To Be in My Show). This will be the fifth Royal Room engagement for Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr., following their Colony Hotel debut in Spring 2009.
Reviews of Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr.:
+ The New York Times: “Ms. McCoo and Mr. Davis, now both in their mid 60s, are the most famous alumni of the Fifth Dimension, the group that homogenized pop and rock strains into cheerful, polished lounge music that made grown-ups feel comfortably groovy… Both are still strong singers.”
+ Cabaret Scenes: “After forty years in the music biz and thirty-nine years of married life together, these 2/5ths of the original Fifth Dimension are still struttin’ their stuff. They look and sound great… Their act is squeaky clean and polished with lots of information about their career(s) and personal lives. Just what an audience loves to hear! McCoo’
