For some in the audience, it was their first time seeing the multi-platinum artists that became famous in the 90's with hits such as "It’s so Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday," "End of the Road," and “Water Run Dry." Nate, Shawn, and Wanya armed with only their voices and perfectly timed choreographed dance steps, took fans back to a time when music was real. Boyz II Men are known for their powerful vocal talents and their ability to induce emotion from listeners with their blended acappella harmonies.

The trio kept fans in a transfixed state as they rolled through their hour-long set including a soulful cover of Journey's "Open Arms." When Boyz II Men performed "I'll Make Love to You," female fans clambered to get closer to the stage so they could receive one of the long stem roses that each member was passing out. This has become a tradition along with Nate singing to a fans mother via cell phone the hit, "A Song for Momma".

The House of Blues became one big dance party when Shaun (Stockton) had the DJ play songs from the 90's that also included a medley of dances known from “back in the day,” before concluding with their own mega hit “Motown Philly.”

Ohio fans, if you missed the show Friday night. You still have a chance to see them this summer at the State Fair in Columbus, Ohio. Be sure to check the band's page for information on dates.
