The 90’s have always been referred to as the indistinguishable decade because it lacked telltale feature that made it stand out and define itself like the hard edges of the 80’s, the free love hippy vibes of the 70’s, or tumultuous teenage revolt of the 60’s.
That is, unless one thinks about the girl group that pioneered the marriage of a powerhouse girl group like Diana Ross and The Supremes with a modern interpretation. That beloved girl group is En Vogue and they have stood the test of time.
En Vogue took The Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills by storm on Saturday, May 23, 2015 and there wasn’t a single person in the room not dancing to their high energy jams.
A group once known for their perfect harmonies, classy yet sexy costumes, and effervescent dance moves, En Vogue has still got it. The ladies gave a performance that showcased their stunning vocal range with dance moves that would leave a young Britney Spears speechless. To say that the ladies of En Vogue are still beautiful, talented, charismatic forces is quite the understatement.
With enviable bodies one would see in a fitness catalogue and impeccable choreography, these ladies know how to give the audience all the visual elements for a mind blowing show without the pyrotechnics a lesser band would employ.
The ladies of En Vogue sang all their hits from “My Lovin (You’re Never Gonna Get I)t” to their first hit “Hold On” and even one would argue as their most passionate hit from the film soundtrack for Set It Off the song that affected everyone in the audience, “Don’t Let Go (Love).”
When there’s En Vogue involved one can never forget the rock inspired anti prejudice anthem “Free Your Mind.” The set list wasn’t limited to their own catalogue, the ladies also covered a medley of Motown hooks from The Supremes, to The Mary Jane Girls, and even the spectacular Tina Turner.
En Vogue is still using their talent and vocal skills to wow audiences in a time when smoke and mirrors are the norm. This is a show anyone who loves the 90’s has to check out.
