Danceability has always been a crucial part of pop music throughout the ages, but which decade -- the '80s or the '90s -- had the songs that can still make modern feet move? That very question will be answered in one night at The Fillmore as Biz Markie and several top cover bands curate a stream of hits from both the '80s and '90s. Markie, a beatboxer and rapper known for his 1989 Top 10 song "Just A Friend," plays host and DJ while '80s cover band The New Romance and '90s cover band Here's To The Night open and close the lineup with expert renditions of your favorite dance-worthy songs from their respective eras. Hosted by HOT 99.5, Washington DC's Top 40 and pop radio station, the Fillmore Flashback will prove once and for all which decade had the best tunes. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“(Malary) has a versatile baritone voice with the control to whisper through tender passages, the power to raise the roof. He connects with the audience while crooning and maintaining (a) reserved demeanor and elegant style.” —Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Isn’t it Romantic
written and directed by David Koch
music directed by William Knowles
featuring Jimi Ray Malary and Lori Williams
MetroStage favorite Jimi Ray Malary returns to MetroStage after past hit shows, Ellington: The Life and Music of The Duke and Nat King Cole: King of Cool. This new romantic musical tribute features the songs that epitomize the many stages of romance from popular music’s most prolific and enduring songwriters: Jerome Kern, Rodgers and Hart, and George and Ira Gershwin. Direct from the Stackner Cabaret at Milwaukee Rep, Mr. Malary will be joined by Lori Williams (another MetroStage favorite featured in All Night Strut in 2005)
