Multi-platinum group Bell Biv DeVoe — Ricky Bell, Mike Bivins and Ron DeVoe — have been bridging the gap between R&B and Hip-Hop music with a pop-feel-appeal-to-it for more than 25 years. A direct byproduct of the hugely successful 1980’s vocal quintet “New Edition”, “BBD” merged the irresistible sounds of Hip-Hop beats, New Jack Swing and R&B harmonies.
The group’s wildly successful debut album Poison sold 4 million copies and featured 4 classic hits. In addition to the the Platinum selling title track, the album featured “Do Me,” “When Will I See You Smile Again,” and “BBD…I Thought It Was Me.” BBD’s follow up album, “WBBD-Bootcity” (A Remix LP)“ sold over 700,000 units, while the 1993 album Hootie Mack was gold-certified.
BBD’s many accolades include numerous Grammy nominations, three American Music Awards, two Soul Train Awards, countless “Keys to The City,” as well as an abundance of esteemed salutations for their many humanitarian efforts. Ricky, Mike and Ron are stronger today than ever before. Since the early days with New Edition, BBD has sold over 20 million albums worldwide and has won the hearts of millions of fans globally.
Treena Parvello, Director of Public Relations and Communications for the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, said, “BBD’s unique sound has thrilled millions of fans the world over. We’re excited to bring these pioneering icons of Hip-Hop and R&B to the Diamond Center on July 20! Tickets go on sale May 18 and are sure to go fast!”
