We’re throwing it back a few decades to when parachute pants, fly girls and tight rhymes were the name of the game. The Hip-Hop & R&B Throwback Sing-Along comes to (le) poisson rouge with over two hours of party-starting hits that’ll make you wanna Jump! Jump!
We’ll be spinning the best music videos of the decade with all the lyrics right up on the screen – no embarrassing moments of memory failure guaranteed! – so everyone can sing, rap and dance along together. No microphones and best of all – no waiting to sing!
This Is How We Do It…with 90’s hip-hop and R&B video hits from Usher, Salt-N-Pepa, Ginuwine, Mariah Carey, Puff Daddy, Aaliyah, Coolio, Brandy & Monica, Beastie Boys, Boyz II Men, TLC and many, many more.
– Hop into those parachute pants or dress up like your favorite era-appropriate musician, fictional character or celebrity for the 90’s Costume Contest!
– Show off your sweet 90’s hip-hop dance moves in the Dance Off!
– Prizes include 90’s-themed swag like Surge soda, dope posters and memorabilia, and antiquated musical delivery mediums.
And no, we still don’t want No Scrubs.
The Hip-Hop & R&B Throwback Sing-Along
MICHAEL AUSTIN, founder, producer, emcee
“Pop Culture Warrior” of SecretFormula, Michael has been connecting people with their pop culture roots ever since he started hosting music video Sing-Alongs in his apartment and once the neighbors started complaining he started producing events at venues all over NYC. Soon he was bringing his adult fantasies of watching cartoons and eating cereal with other “grown-ups” at Spoons, Toons and Booze and creating unique experiences for lovers of specific pop culture to come together off-line and in person to celebrate their nerdery together.
NELL CASEY, producer, emcee
Few things bring Nell greater joy than joining in a group of people belting the chorus to some NSYNC song, which is good because that’s what she’s lucky enough to facilitate at many a SecretFormula Sing-Along. When she’s not gushing about a divine love for He-Man> on the microphone, she can be found writing about (mostly) cheese as the Food Editor at Gothamist.
