The Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun has lined up a stellar list of headliners this May, beginning with R&B performers Bell Biv DeVoe on Friday, May 6th, followed by Hip Hop pioneer Vanilla Ice on Saturday, May 7th. Jimmy Wayne brings his Country tunes live in the Den on Friday, May 20th and Rock band Crossfade will bring the sounds of their latest album to the Wolf Den stage on Friday, May 27th.  Finally, Rock royalty is honored as Wolf Den Hall of Fame inductee America arrives on Saturday, May 28th.  Friday and Saturday Wolf Den shows begin at 8:00pm and Sunday shows are at 7:00pm unless otherwise noted.   Admission is free, but all guests must be 21 or over.
Bell Biv DeVoe is an R&B musical group that branched off from New Edition. It consists of three of New Edition’s previous members, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe. The group took the R&B scene by storm in 1991 with their debut album, Poison.
Vanilla Ice rose to fame with his infectious 1990 hit, “Ice Ice Baby,” but concert-goers can expect more than that from this performer. His influences range from Old School Hip Hop to underground Rock, and what fans can expect is an eclectic combination of music genres and more when he takes the stage.
Country artist, Jimmy Wayne’s remake of the Hall & Oates Pop classic “Sara Smile” is now the centerpiece of an album that showcases his formidable talents as both a vocalist and a songwriter. His soulful singing permeates every note of such soaring, powerful ballads as “All the Time in the World,” “Belongs to You” and “Counting the Days.” He rocks splendidly on “There’s a Memory” and “Things I Believe.”
Crossfade may not have conquered all of its demons, but the band is sounding a vehement battle cry. The Columbia, SC outfit’s third album delves into familiar lyrical themes of betrayal and isolation—but there’s also more than a hint of renewal and resolution. The set’s 10 tracks, produced by the band, maintain the sonic thunderclap of Crossfade’s previous efforts, while propelling its guitar-grinding signature with a tapestry of orchestration and programming, and a flourish of keyboards, thanks to the addition of Les Hall to the permanent lineup, alongside Sloan, bassist Mitch James and drummer Will Hunt.
Wolf Den Hall of Fame Inductee America rose to fame in the 1970s with a string of commercially successful albums.  The Folk/Rock band’s biggest hits include, “A Horse with No Name,” “Sister Golden Hair” and “Ventura Highway.”
