112 & Jon B


112 and Jon B
R&B fans can get their '90s fix and groove to 112 and Jon B., live at Harrah’s Atlantic City on Friday, Feb. 9 at 9 p.m.

Years can go by and we can say Jon B. will always be "someone to love." The successful R&B musician, songwriter and producer got his big break after meeting Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Tracy Edmonds. After signing on to Tracy’s label, he had much success with his debut album, “Bonafide.” The album was certified Platinum and included the Grammy-nominated hit, "Someone To Love,” featuring Babyface.

In addition to “Someone To Love,” Jon B. had several other hits including “Pretty Girl,” “They Don’t Know,” “Don’t Say,” “Are U Still Down” featuring the late Tupac Shakur and “Don’t Talk.” To date, Jon B. has seven studio albums, with an eighth one releasing in 2018.

Joining Jon B. is the R&B group 112. Hailing from Atlanta, the quartet had a string of hits in the '90s including “Only You,” “Cupid” and “Anywhere.” The group also collaborated with R&B female group Allure for the remake of “All Cried Out.” In the early 2000s, 112 released two chart-topping hits, “It’s Over Now” and “Peaches & Cream.”

The group won a Grammy Award in 1997 for “I’ll Be Missing You,” which included Sean Combs and Faith Evans. To date, the group has six studio albums, with the latest “Q, Mike, Slim, Daron” in 2017.

Take a trip back in time and relive all your favorite '90s hits with 112 and Jon B. in concert this February.

The year 2017 marks the 47th Anniversary of perennial classic-rock favorite, America.  Founding members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (along with former band mate Dan Peek) met in high school in London in the late 1960s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song "A Horse With No Name."  America became a global household name and paved the way with an impressive string of hits following the success of their first #1 single.  Forty plus years later, these friends are still making music together, touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound.
