The legendary band Cameo bring their funk-infused R&B hits "Word Up!," Candy" and "Back and Forth" to the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino for a performance that will have you dancing well into the night. Originally known as the New York City Players, the band formed in the early 1970s and instantly earned the respect of such colleagues as Rick James, Isaac Hayes, Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind & Fire. They enjoyed their most prolific success in the 1980s, when "Word Up!" and "Candy" took over the airwaves. The prolific group has also collaborated with some of contemporary music's most noteworthy artists, including Andree 3000 and Big Boi from the Grammy-winning hip-hop group OutKast. Dozens of albums and hit songs later, Cameo has settled into a well-deserved legendary status, and they show no signs of stopping now.
