The musical Osmond family just can’t get enough of Las Vegas. While brother and sister duo Donny and Marie have a regular gig at the Flamingo Las Vegas, brothers Merrill, Jay and Jimmy make routine stops at 850-seat The Orleans Showroom.
The Osmonds return April 10-12 to celebrate their five-decade career in music.
The brothers have a range of musical styles that spans barbershop, pop, rock, country and jazz genres. They’re known for such classic hits as “One Bad Apple,” “Yo-Yo,” “Down By The Lazy River” and “Love Me For A Reason.” Between them, they have mastered 28 musical instruments.
As youngsters, the Osmond boys made a national television appearance on “The Andy Williams Show” for what was meant to be a one-time shot at the big time. That performance five decades ago led to seven seasons as regulars on the show, as well as professional gigs at Disneyland and with “The Jerry Lewis Show” before signing with MGM Records.
They also performed during the 1976 premiere of “The Donny and Marie Show,” where they were executive producers. Three years later the show transformed into “The Osmond Family Show.”
By 1982, the trio changed their sound from pop to country music. Billboard magazine honored them with the “1982 Breakthrough Award” as well as the “Number One New Singles Group of the Year.” Now they have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Tickets start at $34.95.
