PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Ohio Players, best known for its popular hits “O-H-I-O,” “Love Rollercoaster” and “Fire,” brings its iconic, contemporary R&B concert to The Event Center at Rivers Casino on Saturday, May 4, at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and start at $25.
Not only has the Ohio Players influenced the funk and soul music scene for many decades, its unmatched horn-driven melodies have earned the group a gold disc for its first hit single, “Funky Worm,” as well as for the chart-topping record “Love Rollercoaster.” In addition to these two accolades, many of its other songs have also reached top spots on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B charts.
Formerly known as the Ohio Untouchables, the group has over 50 years of experience in the music industry. The band has released 16 studio albums and had multiple No. 1 hits. The group has pioneered the soul, funk and R&B genres with its unique sound, eye-popping album covers and polished facade. Even after the Ohio Players released its last album in 2016, members of the band continued to create music and release many albums of their own.
“The Ohio Players have a classic R&B sound that is incomparable,” said Rivers Casino General Manager Bill Keena. “We’re very excited to have them perform at The Event Center.”
Tickets for the Ohio Players show and for all Rivers Casino Pittsburgh performances can be purchased at the Rivers Casino Gift Shop or at RiversCasino.com.
