I Love The 90’s Lineup:

Mark McGrath

When the band Sugar Ray’s breakthrough #1 hit song “Fly” put them on the map in 1997, lead vocalist and majority songwriter Mark McGrath was thrust into the public eye.  It’s no doubt the band still maintains its momentum due in no small part to the good looks, charisma and talent of its front man, Mark McGrath.

Rob Base

Rob Base hails from Harlem, New York. He first began performing with various groups such as: Sure Shot Seven, Cosmic 3 MC’s, and Freedom Force. He and partner DJ EZ Rock, (whom he has known since the 4th grade) would eventually separate from the groups to form Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock. Their first single ‘DJ Interview’ came out on Mike and Dave’s label Star Maker’s Records in 1986. World to World Records would produce their second single ‘Make It Hot’ in 1987. Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock’s music began to gain momentum and they would receive a distribution deal with Profile Records by 1988.

Kid N Play

Christopher ‘Kid’ Reid originally from the Bronx and Christopher ‘Play’ Martin from Queens, New York met in the 1980’s. The pair were in rival Hip Hop crews The Turnout Brothers and The Super Lovers, and eventually formed their duo under the name The Fresh Force Crew. In 1986 ”She’s a Skeezer’’, “All Hail The Drum” and ”Rock Me” were recorded on Sultra Records By 1987 they had changed their name to Kid n Play.


The Grammy Award Winning group All-4-One is internationally known for making beautiful love songs that not only chart radio airwaves, but also garner countless awards. All-4-One’s very first single “So Much In Love,” scaled to RIAA Gold Sales and top 5 Pop status. The California based quartet soon marked their place in the industry as premier balladeers. Their second single, “I Swear“, claimed the billboard “Hot 100” #1 spot for 11 consecutive weeks, while sales sky rocketed to hold the #1 selling single status in 1994 and third most successful single of the Rock era.

Tone Loc

Tone Loc soared from obscurity into Pop stardom in 1989 when his hoarse voice and unmistakable delivery made the song “Wild Thing” (using a sample from Van Halen’s “Jamie’s Cryin'”) a massive hit winning Grammys and countless other awards. The song “Wild Thing” was co-written by Marvin Young, better known as Young MC, as was the second single smash, “Funky Cold Medina.” The album Loc-ed After Dark became the second rap release ever to top the Pop charts and one of the most popular of all time.

Color Me Badd

Color Me Badd is one of the top R&B vocal groups of all time.  The group has sold 12 million records in the United States. Their debut album, C.M.B sold over 6 million copies worldwide and became certified Triple platinum in the United States.  They have 3 number 1 singles and 17 top 20 singles.   Color Me Badd has five hit singles from their debut album C.M.B.
