Thursday, June 17, 2010, San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino welcomes the silky-smooth vocals of Keith Sweat, along with the raw power of Aaron and Damion Hall. Tickets are on sale today and are available at Ticketmaster.com and the San Manuel Box Office for $35, $45, and $55.

Over the course of his 16-year career, he’s not only survived, he’s thrived, selling more than 14 million records, while garnering five #1 R&B albums, 15 Top 10 R&B singles, six #1 hits, four Top 5 pop singles, three multiplatinum and three platinum albums, two platinum and three gold singles, widespread critical acclaim and a rabid international following.

The Harlem-born college grad’s smooth transition from Wall Street brokerage assistant to R&B heartthrob was almost as fluid as his signature style of music. In fact, it’s likely that Sweat, who debuted in the late ’80s, single-handedly and ever-so-eloquently merged the “please, baby, baby, please” style that dominated ’60s R&B with the rhythmic moaning made famous by Steve Arrington, front man for ’70s R&B group Slave. His 1987 debut, “Make It Last Forever”, was the sexy backdrop to the short-lived yet monumental New Jack era. Remarkably, the quadruple-platinum album still scans at least 800 copies a week. His astonishing run of chart-topping discs continued with subsequent releases “I’ll Give All My Love To You”, “Keep It Comin’”, “Get Up On It” and “Keith Sweat”. He continues to record hit music to this day.

Aaron Hall, an American R&B singer and songwriter and older brother to Damion, was a member of the trio Guy in the 1980’s and 1990’s. The group produced hits like “ Groove Me,” “I Like,” and “Piece of My Love”. from their self-titled debut album.

“Let Chill” and “Do Me Right” came from their second album, “The Future”.

The brothers went on create solo careers after the break-up of Guy in 1991, where Aaron connected with K-Ci & Jojo in the 2Pac single “Toss It Up” in the 1996 album, “The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory”.
