A group that started out as a cruise ship and Walt Disney World act has now landed a resident show on the Las Vegas Strip. The five-man Mo5aic kicks off a six-month residency at Bally’s Las Vegas starting on Friday, June 5.
The twist here is that Mo5aic members don’t use any instruments or soundtracks to accompany their singing; they only use their own voices to make up the sounds to accompany the vocals.
Motown singers Boyz II Men, who also have a show at the Mirage, called Mo5aic “the next great a cappella group” back in 2007, and since, they’ve had shows at the V Theatre inside the Miracle Mile Shops and even opened for comedian George Wallace when he was at the Flamingo Las Vegas. in 2009, the group appeared on “America’s Got Talent,” but were eliminated in the quarterfinals.
The group covers pop, hip-hop, rock, jazz and more during its shows, and even takes requests from the audience.
The Las Vegas-based band features Roopak Ahuja, Heath Burgett, Corwyn Hodge, Josh Huslig and Jake Moulton, who have been together since 2002. Singer Tony Bennett once called them the best vocal group he ever heard, and Prince says,“With MO5AIC around, who needs a DJ?”
General admission tickets start at $100 while VIP tickets are $115. The residency lasts through Dec. 7.
