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, D.C.'s Top 40 and pop radio station, The Fillmore Flashback will prove once and for all which decade had the best tunes. Learn More

Reviews & Ratings
The Philadelphia Brass was formed in 1988 by professional musicians of Eastern Pennsylvania to pursue their common goals: performing the best of brass quintet literature of all periods and styles, and educating the public to the pleasures, subtleties, and complexities of chamber music. Since its inception, Philadelphia Brass has performed over 500 times. It has collaborated in performances with bands, choruses, organists and dancers. It has performed educational programs for kindergartners, college students, and adults of all ages, coached grade school instrumentalists and taught a master class for the brass students of Juilliard.
Critics and public alike have enthusiastically praised the appealing diversity of repertoire, technical virtuosity, humorous and informative educational programs, and superb musicality of the ensemble. The ensemble’s playing has been praised as “artistry of the highest calibre” and “dazzling technique” by presenters. Its master classes have been called “excellent and sensitively handled” and the esteemed American composer Daniel Pinkham has written that Philadelphia Brass is “the most artistic brass quintet before the public today.”
