Freestyle Old School Jam, Featuring Top Artists of the ‘80s and ‘90s, Comes to Orleans Arena April 28

Top freestyle, pop and dance artists of the ‘80s and ‘90s will bring their greatest hits to Freestyle Old School Jam at the Orleans Arena on Saturday, April 28. Featured artists include Stevie B., Lisa Lisa, Exposé, Taylor Dayne, Debbie Deb, Trinere, Newcleus, 69 Boyz, Tag Team, and Tawatha of MTume.

Singer-songwriter and producer Stevie B. was a freestyle pioneer in Miami, Fla. in the late ‘80s, bursting into the music scene in 1987 with his smash hit “Party Your Body.” Early in his career, Stevie B. garnered his first Top-40 hits with “I Wanna Be the One” and “In My Eyes,” as well as the Top-10 single “Love Me for Life.” In 1990, Stevie B. released one of his best-loved, platinum-selling albums, “Love & Emotion,” including his No. 1 hit “Because I Love You (The Postman Song)” and Top-15 hit “I’ll Be by Your Side.”

Hailing from New York City, Lisa Lisa took the freestyle and pop world by storm in the mid-1980s as a member of the band Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. The group was best known for their smash hits “Head to Toe,” “Lost in Emotion,” “Can You Feel the Beat” and more. Lisa Lisa has also released solo projects, including her 1994 album “LL77” that included the hits “Skip to My Lu” and “When I Fell in Love.” Aside from her musical career, Lisa Lisa is an actress who has starred on Nickelodeon’s show “Taina.” She has also appeared in numerous Broadway and Off-Broadway shows.

Formed in the mid-1980s, Exposé became one of the first group’s in music history to have four Top-10 hits on their debut album, surpassing records originally set by legendary bands The Beatles and The Supremes. Between 1985 to 1995, the group brought their dance music to fans across the world, reaching the Top-40 R&B and adult contemporary charts with hits like “Come Go with Me,” “Point of No Return,” “Let Me Be the One” and “I’ll Never Get Over You (Getting Over Me).” Exposé became the first female group to have seven back-to-back Top-10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including their No. 1 hit “Seasons Change.” After taking off 15 years from the band, Exposé reunited and released their most recent hit “Shine On.”
