Tulalip summer series begins Saturday with Boyz II Men
R&B singers Boyz II Men kick off the Summer Concert Series Saturday night at the Tulalip Amphitheatre at the Tulalip Resort Casino.
This Grammy-winning group got its start two decades ago in Philadelphia. It didn't take long before they swept the nation, setting new Billboard records with their gorgeous, soulful ballads and a cappela melodies.
Self styled after the great gospel group, Take Six, Boys II Men has delighted audiences with their great harmonies and silky voices.
They've created lush songs that topped the charts and then wouldn't yield the top spot for months (only Elvis, The Beatles and Mariah Carey have held No. 1 longer).
Joining Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris is the female R&B group En Vogue.
Also performming is Salt-n-Pepa, an all-female hip hop group with Cheryl James, aka "Salt," Sandra "Pepa" Denton and Deidra Roper, aka "DJ Spinderella."
The show starts at 7 Saturday night at the Tulalip Amphitheatre.
Tickets are sold out. Check with the Tulalip Resort Casino at 360-716-7162 to see if last-minute tickets become available.

Two great rock and soul acts come to the Chateau Amphitheatre at Chateau Ste. Michelle this weekend.
Like many of the concerts scheduled this summer, these two distinct acts have musical similarities.
In fact, Boz Scaggs, part of the trio of front men in tonight's super group, The Dukes of September Rhythm Revue, once played with the Saturday night act, The Steve Miller Band.
Scaggs teamed up with Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald decades ago as the New York Soul and Rock Revue.
This superstar trio reunited more recently and this summer they pay tribute to Levon Helm, the drummer from The Band who died earlier this year.
They also play from an incredibly deep songbook of American pop and soul tunes. Backed by many of the musicians from Steely Dan, this has the makings of an unforgettable evening.
The Dukes of September play at 7 tonight at Chateau Ste. Michelle, 14111 NE 145th St., Woodinville.
Tickets are $50 to $80 at ticketmaster.com, 800-745-3000 or at the winery.
To celebrate the delivery of the first 747-8 freighter, Boeing invited the seminal rockers The Steve Miller Band to play their hit, "Jet Airliner." The concert delighted the cheering crowds inside the Everett assembly plant.
Now, everyone gets to hear the band play Saturday at the winery.
Known for numerous hits -- "Fly Like An Eagle," "Space Cowboy," "Livin' in the USA" and "Abracadabra" -- the band has been a force since they got their start in San Francisco in the late '60s.
One hit single after another flowed in the mid-'70s and it's now hard to tune into the radio without tripping over a Steve Miller Band song.
The concert starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at Chateau Ste. Michelle, 14111 NE 145th St., Woodinville.
Tickets are sold out, but call the winery at 425-488-1133 to see if last-minute tickets become available.
