                                                                   I love the 90s concert review

                                                    Pompano Beach amphitheater, August 19, 2017

Last night, concert goers to the Pompano Beach amphitheater were treated to a wide of a Time Machine that took them back to the 1990s. As someone who was born in 1970, I was in my 20s during the musical explosion of the 1990s. The 90s were great for hip-hop music was everywhere and what was on everyone’s lips.

The Pompano Beach Amphitheater was proud to host the I love the 90s tour to a full house of concertgoers looking to relive the music of their youth. With a stellar lineup that included Young MC, Coolio, Salt N Pepa featuring Spinderella, and Vanilla Ice, there was no way anyone in attendance was not going to have a good time.

The concert event kicked off with Young MC on the mic. His set was very short, and only included three selections, the first two were not familiar to me. What everybody was waiting for though, was for his big hit “ Bust a Move”. As you can imagine, once the opening beats of this rap classic pushed their  way out of the giant bass speakers on the stage, The crowd jump to their feet and began to sing along with young MC. Doing an extended version of the song, he kept the crowd entertained and wanting more, but now it was time to set the stage for the next performer, Coolio.

Looking the same as he always has, Coolio took the stage wearing a white hat with his trademark braids sticking out of the top. Like Young MC, his set was also short and ended with the much anticipated hit song of his career, “Gangsters Paradise”. As expected, the crowd went crazy for his performance and was left wondering who was to take the stage next.

With six giant LED screens on the stage, along with two DJ booths, Salt N Pepa took the stage with much more than I ever expected. Looking all the same, even better, as they did back in the 90s, Salt N Pepa and Spinderella busted out hit after hit with out missing a beat. Accompanied by two amazing male dancers, S&P engaged in a little dirty dancing with them while poppin’ rhymes on the mic.

After a few songs, and having the longest set of the night, S&P took a short break and let Spinderella take the spotlight. Spinderella started her set with a great mix of music that included Guns N Roses, Michael Jackson, and Cyndi Lauper, which drove the audience wild. Inviting fans onto the stage, The girls closed the set with their mega-hit “Push It” while dancing with the fans. If you weren't able to see these amazing ladies in action, don't worry, they will be performing at the Riptide Music Festival in December on Ft. Lauderdale beach.

After a short break, headliner Vanilla Ice stormed the stage and took the idea from Salt N Pepa and called for fans to join him on stage to party and dance. Ice began with great mixes using samplings from Wild Cherry’s “Play That Funky Music” to DJ Snake/Lil John’s “Turn Down For What”. Vanilla Ice cooled down the audience by spraying cold bottles of water on the crowd, as well as those onstage. In the middle of his set, Ice took time to thank and praise those in the military for putting their lives on the line, as well as honoring those in public service, such as the police, fire fighters, and EMT workers. Ice ended his set with his most popular song, “Ice, Ice Baby”. As you would expect, the crowd went wild and stage cannons exploded multi-colored confetti into the audience.

   All in all, a GREAT night of music, at the BEST outdoor venue in South Florida.  To see what other great                          concerts are coming to the Pompano Beach Amphitheater, log on to their site at
