R&B Great, En Vogue, to Appear at Rivers Casino & Resort
SCHENECTADY – Coming to Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady Event Center on Saturday, September 3rd is En Vogue. It’s sure to be an unforgettable night of R&B pop classics; En Vogue’s pristine vocal harmonies, legacy of hits, and stellar stage show is a sure bet to have guests singing and dancing all night long. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the show starts at 8:00 pm.
Legendary is a status very few groups ever attain but, for 30 years and counting, En Vogue has achieved this pinnacle on nothing but pure talent. And they are not letting up now. Still riding high off the global release of 2018’s Electric Café, their first album in 14 years, En Vogue continues to soar as Terry Ellis, Cindy Herron-Braggs and Rhona Bennett take the group to even greater heights.
Formed in 1989 in the Bay Area, En Vogue, comprised then of Ellis, Herron, Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones, began their official R&B and pop takeover in 1990 when their hit single, “Hold On” from their critically acclaimed debut album, Born To Sing, reached number one on both the dance and R&B/Hip-Hop charts. Since then, they have sold over 20 million physical albums. More impressively, they have transitioned effortlessly into the digital age, garnering over 30-million streams and 26-million plus YouTube views for their Top 6 hit singles alone which, in addition to “Hold On,” includes “Free Your Mind,” “Never Gonna Get It,” “Giving Him Something He Can Feel,” “Don’t Let Go,” and “Whatta Man” (featuring Salt-N-Pepa).
Today the evolution of En Vogue, now a trio with Bennett, is still thriving. “Rocket,” their Ne-Yo penned, lead radio single from Electric Café, which blends the group’s signature harmonies with a futuristic language for romance, became their first Top 10 single in 20 years. To date, the video, playing up the intergalactic love vibe, has nearly 2-million YouTube views. Their second single, “Reach 4 Me,” also hit the Top 20.
