The first half of the show was AMAZING!!! Kurtis Blow was great and Peanut Butter Wolf's VJ set was AWESOME. The energy level definitely slowed down in the second R&B half, but everyone performed well - it was overall a great show.

The show was awesome! Egyptian Lover, Soul Sonic Force and of course Lisa Lisa tore it up. Klymaxx was jammin' as well!

SOOOOOO much fun! GREAT time and GREAT seats! So cool to see all the "30 & over" crowd enjoying "REAL Music"! Everyone had a great time (except when they cut Lisa Lisa off!) all in all, it was a great time :)

Parking wasn't the best. There were a lot of yellow shirts standing around, but they didn't even tell me how to enter into the lot.

Now, on to the event itself....ummmm....it was "okee." We did enjoy Melle, Kurtis Blow, and RFTW (RFTW was my...continued

The Hip-hop acts stole the show. With the exception of Klymaxx, the R&B portion of the show was very subpar and not worth the price of admission. I have been to the Greek many times and for some reason the microphones were kinda low this time,...continued

it was attending your high school reunion, one in which the dj played all your favorite songs, all your old friends looked good, and the nostalgia extended far beyond the decorations!

The concert was OK. The first couple hours were great with the old hip hop. Then the two bands that came on before Lisa Lisa were snoozers. And because they played so long, Lisa Lisa only did about a half hour set. I know I wasn't the only one...continued

It was impossible not to enjoy this concert-- so many memories, so many break beats, so many fun raps.

I will say that it felt like two distinct concerts squeezed together. The first was rap, including Melle Mel, Egyptian Lover, Soulsonic...continued

Night of old school hip hop, brought back great memories of good times. The talent lineup was awesome, although the Greek Theatre could've done better with the Sound quality.

A great time listening to "my music". Although production sucked - artists didn't know how long to play, others pushed off stage early, etc... Doesn't anybody producing the show have a stop watch???

It was a great event overall but poorly planned since there was not enough time for the bigger acts at the end of the night, esp Lisa Lisa. She stopped in the middle of her song and announcement about the 11pm curfew was made. In my opinion,...continued

Enjoyed myself very much. There is not really a bad seat in the house at the Greek. My only continuous complaint is the parking but nothing much can be done about that.

Event seem to be thrown together..the main performer was kicked off stage due to curfew issues at the Greek. There was to much time in between performances. Music was great though.

First of all, the seats we got from your company GREAT!!!! Perfect! I agree with what everyone said about the show. HIGH energy at the beginning, but the R&B REALLY slowed the show down too much. The Hip-Hop was wonderful!

My wife and I had a blast!! We longed to attend a concert with artist at the top of their game when we were much younger. All acts were very good however I must give an edge to Melle Mel and Curtis Blow. Bring on the next Ol School concert.

Over all the concert was great..The music brought back some great times..I dance all night..The only down fall was that Lisa Lisa was rush off the stage in the middle of her best song "Can you feel the beat" due to out of time....Would go again..
