Rated 5 out of
Sugarhill Gang & The Furious 5
Attended at St Luke's, Glasgow for a long awaited night of old school hip hop with the appearance of the Sugarhill Gang. Not only that but also with the added bonus of Grandmaster Melle Mel and Scorpio.
From the beginning with the house DJ setting the scene with some deft old school tunes the atmosphere was electric. This carried on with the support act to the appearance of The Sugarhill Gang. They jumped straight into the hits of old with the crowd getting right into the spirit from the off. Then when things couldn't get better they did with the introduction of Melle Mel and Scorpio to raise the roof with the legends which were The Message and White Lines.
Then the showstopper with everyone involved belting out Rappers Delight and then Apache. The house literally came down. What a fantastic night at a fantastic venue.
Definitely one for the slightly older music fan into the old school hip hop however there was a number of younger members of the audience gettting down.
Nothing beats a small venue packed full of music fans getting into the groove and this had it all. Oh and a very reasonable bar with good service just made the night that bit better.
Brilliant night at a brilliant venue with brilliant music.
