- When you first met The Bad Boys of R&B: in 1991, when they burst onto the small screen on Soul Train and onto record store shelves with their debut, Forever My Lady, which sold more than three million copies
- When they first met: In their homes. The group is made up of two sets of brothers—Cedric (K-Ci) and Joel (Jo Jo) Hailey, and Donald (DaVante) and Dalvin (Mr. Dalvin) DeGrates.
- How they earned their “Bad Boys” nickname: with edgy hip-hop attire that flipped the script on the clean-cut image other R&B groups had cultivated
- How they held onto it: with a smoldering mashup of R&B, New Jack Swing, and soul on singles such as “Come and Talk To Me,” What About Us,” and “Freek’n You”
- Why two of the members look extra familiar: the Hailey brothers formed their own Grammy-nominated group, K-Ci and Jo Jo, best known for their mega-hit “All My Life”
- Jodeci’s latest: 2015’s The Past, The Present, The Future, their first album since 1995
- What Consequence of Sound has to say about their influence: “Modern R&B owes just about everything to K-Ci, JoJo, DeVante, and Mr. Dalvin.”
- How you know their influence is far-reaching: they have their own Playbuzz quiz called “Which Jodeci Song Was Written About You?”
At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who’ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.
