Here’s the Music Lineup:
“Established in 2003. 16 Candles makes it their personal duty and pleasure to bring all the great 80′s songs you love to life in full force. Their attention to detail and commitment to entertainment captivates audiences and inspires new ways of dancing and thinking (not to mention drinking). The members are 5 fun-loving guys with a simple love for the music of years gone by and a mission to fuse nostalgia and style to create a sight/sound spectacular unlike any other.”
Too White Crew
“Alright STOP. Collaborate an’ LIS-en. Remember when hip hop Talked About Sex? When you could Bust a Move, Shake the Rump, do the Humpty and no one was poppin’ caps? When Bell Biv Devoe called all y’all tricks “Poison” and warned all the fellas to “never trust a big butt & a smiiiiiiile”? We do Too. We’ll drink up all the Hennessey you got on yo’ shelf, so just let us introduce ourselves…Too White Crew is the world’s first & only old skool hip hop tribute band. We’re comin’ straight from the Chi and we serve up all the great hip hop anthems of the late 80′s and early 90′s…100% live. We don’t track nuthin’. We don’t Milli Vanilli your ass either. And since Too White Crew is “all-live”, that makes us the only band in history to ever actually “perform” all the music we cover. And that’s on the real. We ain’t chest thumpin’ or nuthin’. Hell, just cuz we’ve done it doesn’t mean it’s good — so hopefully you’ll see for yourself. Our five years together have taken us to the east coast, to the Playboy Mansion & Hollawood on the west coast and to the Luxor in Las Vegas. We’ve opened for Tone Loc, Digital Underground, Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock and we regularly drop old skool lyrical bombs all over the Midwest.”
