By Angela Holloway A band called Jus Once, a local R&B, hip hop, funk band rocked the crowd as they always do and in the true spirit of our African American culture they also paid tribute to those we’ve lost, most notably Ruby Dee and Maya Angelou.
Where do I begin, the Zapp Band had the old school audience traveling down memory lane reconnecting with all of their past hits and introduced the younger crowd like the 15 year next to me to a not so new but relevant genre. When she stepped away for several minutes her father explained he was there spending time with his daughter and that she really didn’t want to be there. Oh and that was written all over her face but once the Zapp band hit the stage that scowl disappeared and “More Bounce to the Once” was more than just the title of a song. She was moving and grooving on the “Dance Floor” another of their hits. It’s hard to tell which of their hits the audience enjoyed most, it was just one big ole (old school) party! My favorite “Computer Love” rocked the audience to a super volcanic eruption. I love that Talk Box. Their selfless entertainment included a visual feast of wardrobe changes.
