When music greats schedule a performance in the QC the only appropriate question is: When & Where?
The Fresh Music Festival takes over the Time Warner Cable Arena on July 1. It’s the return of the best of the 80s and 90s. This old-school extravaganza features Doug E. Fresh, Keith Sweat, GUY, SWV, and K-Ci & JoJo.
With an extensive catalog of number one hits and chart toppers, this concert is one not to be missed.
A grandmaster of hip hop culture, Doug E. Fresh, hosts the 2012 Fresh Music Festival. The creator of beat boxing, he continues to tour the world bringing that old school urban funk to the masses. Recently featured in Ice-T’s documentary Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, Fresh hasn’t skipped a beat. He continues to be one of the strongest advocates for hip hop culture and remarkably looks the same as he did in the 1980s.

Nobody can beg for it quite like Keith Sweat, and Charlotte we get to put that rumor to the test on July 1. With platinum albums and adoring fans all around the world, Keith Sweat is known for his seductive serenades and is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Originators of the New Jack Swing, GUY, will be front and center. These talented musicians are also known for their songwriting and production success. With up-tempo hits like “Groove Me”; “I Wanna Get With You”; and “I Like”; GUY promises to keep you on your feet and moving to the groove.
Sisters With Voices, better known as SWV, are one of the most successful R&B groups of all time. With multiple top 10 hits in the 1990s, SWV has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. CoCo, Leelee, and Taj bring some feminine sass to the all-male line up.
North Carolina natives K-Ci & JoJo bring that down home soul to the festival. With music that dates back to their days with the platinum-selling group Jodeci, these two brothers from Monroe have an impressive collection of hits.
