Human Nature: Jukebox, now playing at the Sands Showroom in The Venetian, is truly a musical treat for all. Human Nature is a doo wop, pop group consisting of brothers Andrew and Mike Tierney and friends Phil Burton and Toby Allen, who all started out as schoolmates in Australia. After 23 best selling albums, being voted “Best Singers” by Best of Vegas, and a successful seven-year run in Vegas with their Motown show, Human Nature’s newest show, Jukebox, is certain to be even more triumphant.
The show includes nostalgic throwback scenes flashed in the background as the group sings and dances their way through some of the best songs of the decades. An old-time jukebox starts off the show and sets the stage for an evening of excellently rendered beloved ballads and movin’ and grovin’ tunes. The melody mix takes you from the 50s to the present in a high energy show that mixes it up with a few pop songs like “Uptown Funk” and “Happy,” and a little Motown soul like “My Girl.”
Song after song, Human Nature keeps the audience spellbound with their voices and you’ll be tapping toes along with their dance moves. The new show also includes two professional ballroom dancers Jami Jones and David Oliveri, as they dance out the stories being sung by the group during a few special features. But, to me, it is Human Nature themselves that make-up the magic being performed onstage.
My girlfriends and I agree that the melancholy musical magic is a must for a Girls Night Out. Performances of “Stand By Me,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Under The Boardwalk,” “Unchained Melody” and more will touch your heart, then you’re energy will be recharged and you’ll be up and dancing with the rest of the audience during “Twist and Shout” and more. I was also impressed with the number of costume changes and decades that were covered, including some of my all-time favorite songs.
Human Nature: Jukebox runs Tuesday – Saturday at 7:00 p.m. Tickets start at $49.95.
This is a “must-see” show you don’t want to miss in Vegas. Wonderful.
