It promises to bring the best of classic R&B to Atlantic City with ticket prices running from $50 to $140.

However, the party will not end when the concert is over. Bally’s Hotel & Casino is hosting the Mother’s Day Music Festival 2017 Official Afterparty from 11 p.m. until 4 a.m. This event will be hosted by Lady B and Patty Jackson. It will feature DJs Gary O and Touch Tone. Tickets are $25.

Mills is a Grammy-winning R&B, gospel, and soul recording artist with five bestselling albums and ten Billboard #1 singles. Her most notable hit is the platinum single “Never Knew Love Like This Before.”

Troop were teen artists who won the nationally televised Puttin’ on the Hits lip sync contest. The Pasadena, California-based group went on to land five number one singles on the Billboard R&B charts.
