Decades Collide featuring DJ Biz Markie, BoyWonder & Can’t Hardly Wait and The Real Feel presents Digital Secrets

Danceability has always been an engine of pop music, but which decade—the ‘80s or the ‘90s—had the songs that still make modern feet move? That question will be answered as Biz Markie and top cover bands curate a stream of hits from both eras. Markie, a beatboxer and rapper known for his 1989 Top 10 song “Just A Friend,” plays host and DJ while regional bands perform expert renditions of favorite dance-worthy songs. From New Wave to N’Sync, the show promises a celebration of the best of the 80’s and 90’s at the Theatre of Living Arts.
