There’s no stopping the phenomenal entertainment taking place at the Hamilton Fine Arts Center, and it is no exception March 27 when The Nylons take the stage at 7 p.m. With seven gold and six platinum recordings, this four-member vocal group is one of Canada's top international success stories. Over the last 25 years the group has become a global institution and a legend in the world of a cappella music. The group has performed more than 1,000 concerts in dozens of tours worldwide including Japan, Korea, China, Australia, Europe, Brazil, United States and Canada.

From their formation in the back of a delicatessen in Toronto to headlining at Carnegie Hall, The Nylons have a storied history. With more than 3 million albums sold, The Nylons have received international acclaim. The group's first album, featuring big hits like "Up the Ladder to the Roof" and "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," went gold in only two months. Billboard Magazine wrote about their recording of "Kiss Him Goodbye" as "possibly the most intoxicating, power-packed harmony and percussion of any record of the '80s."

The Nylons are renowned for vibrant live shows, featuring dazzling harmonies, smooth arrangements, tight choreography and fabulous showmanship. Their rapport with audiences makes them perennial favorites for all age groups. The Nylons continue to perform worldwide to passionate audiences and critical acclaim.
