L’Auberge welcomes Color Me Badd & Tone Loc to the Event Center Saturday, May 11.
Color Me Badd is one of the top R&B vocal groups of all time. The group has sold 12 million records in the United States. The group is well known in Australia, Philippines, Indonesia, parts of East Asia, Thailand, the United Kingdom and New Zealand. Color Me Badd has five hit singles from their debut album C.M.B. These were “I Wanna Sex You Up” (U.S. #2), “I Adore Mi Amor” (U.S. #1), “All 4 Love” (U.S. #1), “Thinkin’ Back” (U.S. #16) and “Slow Motion” (U.S. #18). “I Wanna Sex You Up” was also on the New Jack City soundtrack and hit number one in the United Kingdom.
Tone-Loc soared from obscurity into pop stardom in 1989 when his hoarse voice and unmistakable delivery made the song “Wild Thing” (using a sample from Van Halen’s “Jamie’s Cryin'”) a massive hit. The song was co-written by Marvin Young, better known as Young MC, as was the second single smash, “Funky Cold Medina.” The album Loc-ed After Dark became the second rap release ever to top the pop charts. Tone-Loc expanded his horizons into acting in 1992 and 1993, appearing a few times on the Fox sitcom Roc. He was also in the films Posse and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and in 1991 returned to recording with Cool Hand Loc.
