The "Summer Sizzle" should be as advertised when three of the 1990s’ top male vocal groups—Color Me Badd, All-4-One and Shai—share a concert bill to do some serious serenading for the ladies.

Of the three acts, only All-4-One is still intact and has an active career.

Lead singer Delious Kennedy, Jamie Jones, Tony Borowiak and Alfred Nevarez should have newer material to perform alongside their ’94 hit "I Swear."

‘SUMMER SIZZLE’

Where: Blaisdell Arena

When: 7 p.m. tomorrow

Cost: $35 to $95

Info: 591-2211 or ticketmaster.com

 

The quartet’s latest album is "No Regrets."

Color Me Badd was a monster act in the early ’90s, with five singles from their debut album: the memorable "I Wanna Sex You Up" (also found on the "New Jack City" movie soundtrack), "I Adore Mi Amor," "All 4 Love," "Thinkin’ Back" and "Slow Motion."

Bryan Adams and Mark Calderon are still performing with Color Me Badd, with Kevin Thornton (now a Texas-based minister) occasionally lending his voice onstage. Original CMB member Sam Walters has become a successful record producer.

Shai enjoyed a run of hits in ’92 and ’93, first with their breakout "If I Ever Fall in Love," followed by "Comforter" and "Baby I’m Yours." Garfield Bright, Marc Gray, Darnell Van Rensalier and newer member Erik Willis make up the quartet.
