“Classy” is the word used over and over to describe The 5th Dimension. With over 20 million records sold worldwide and six Grammys®, the legendary 5th Dimension continues to awe sold-out audiences with its amazing harmonies, immaculate showmanship and exciting energy everywhere the group performs. Classic songs include: “Up, Up and Away,” “One Less Bell to Answer,” “Last Night I Didn't Get to Sleep At All,” “Wedding Bell Blues,” “Stoned Soul Picnic” and the iconic, “Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In.”
The 5th Dimension’s impressive resume includes memorable performances on some of the world’s most prestigious stages, including: Royal Albert Hall in London, Hollywood Bowl, Greek Theatre, Radio City Music Hall and multiple stages in casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Canada. The group also boasts decades worth of iconic television appearances like: the Ed Sullivan Show, Good Morning America, the Grammy Awards show, and the Frank Sinatra Special (after a European tour with Mr. Sinatra).
The 5th Dimension has been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, the Grammy Hall of Fame, and even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In 2015, original member and lead vocalist Florence LaRue, celebrates 50 years with the group. With Willie Williams, Leonard Tucker, Patrice Morris and Floyd Smith, she has put together a show with more vocal range than ever and material that is fresh and varied. Much to the audience's delight, she works hard to remain true to the sound of The 5th Dimension’s original recordings and performs the hits in their entirety. It's no wonder The 5th Dimension continues to appeal to audiences of all ages and nationalities. Atlantic City Press writer said it best, “Personal changes have done little to affect the overall quality of The 5th Dimension’s sound. The blend of voices is giving The 5th Dimension a well-deserved reputation for producing some of the cleanest sounding music of this era. The group consists of five very different personalities and contrasting voices that have set a standard for musical quality few groups could ever hope to match.”
