ARCHIVED – Original Date: June 1988.
The performance was on a Saturday night in May 1988 and featured a two song set of Get Loose Crew and Wannabe which had charted in 5th spot on CHEER Music Pool chart that month . Chris DJ JEL Jackson and Len Mix-Master Len were on the turntables with Carl MC B Badwa and Kory MC Shadow Neely leading the group with their vocals. The show was an opportunity to promote the release of their record (Get Loose Crew) from March earlier in the year.
The crew attended earlier in the day for photos outside and inside the Club Get Loose Crew – Twilight Zone 1988 and included a sound check and returned later that evening arriving in a limo with their personal security.
The club had featured break dancers from New York City in the past, but they had never had a Hip-Hop group perform There was some hesitance due to an earlier performance in 1982 by the Beastie Boys resulting in graffiti on the walls of the club.
The venue agreed to allow the group to perform and the event was problem free.
