Last night, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. took us through some important music history with their Up, Up and Away show at The Orleans Showroom at The Orleans Hotel and Casino. Playing to a large and enthusiastic crowd, the musical couple, founding members of the 5th Dimension, performed many of their hits including Aquarius, Let The Sunshine In and even sang some Beatles songs. The pair announced to the crowd that they have been married for 50 years. Their performance received great applause.
Watching Billy and Marilyn perform, you know that these two entertainment legends love music and are still enjoying what they are doing. McCoo and Davis are a high energy, entertaining music duo. See our photo with them, above, after the show last night.
The two vocalists acknowledged former fellow 5th Dimension group member and past CYInterview guest Lamonte McLemore [See here] who was in attendance. Lamonte received an ovation from the crowd.
If you are interested in taking a journey down music’s memory lane, watching these two Grammy winners makes for great entertainment. If you are in Las Vegas, you have one more chance to catch them at The Orleans Showroom at 8:00 PM tonight before Billy Davis Jr. and Marilyn McCoo fly up, up and away.
