Several turn-of-the-century R&B stars will be on hand for Cincy's R&B Fest, a first-time event scheduled for Nov. 15 at U.S. Bank Arena.

With artists primarily from the Atlanta and Texas areas, the concert will feature Jagged Edge, 112, Ginuwine, Tevin Campbell, SILK and H-Town.

Tickets for Cincy's R&B Fest range from $49.50-$250 and are on sale now via ticketmaster.com.

Jagged Edge had its biggest success in the early ’00s, with hits like "Where the Party At" and "Let's Get Married," which won a 2001 Soul Train Music Award (as did their sophomore album, J.E. Heartbreak). The Atlanta group has worked extensively with Jermaine Dupri and his So So Def label. Jagged Edge's latest album, A Jagged Love Story, was supposed to drop in July but, according to a social media post, it has been delayed as they "(work) through clearance legalities."

Also from Atlanta, 112 had a banner year in 1997, hitting the charts several times, including with their single "Cupid." The group was also featured on Puff Daddy's Grammy-winning Biggie Smalls tribute, "I'll Be Missing You," alongside Faith Evans.

Ginuwine was one of the top R&B artists in the world in the late ’90s/early ’00s, hitting the Platinum-selling mark with his first three albums. He is best known for his ubiquitous debut single, the raunchy hit "Pony," which featured the timelessly poetic line, "If you're horny, let's do it, ride it, my pony."
