Bring Back the 90s Park Jam

By Megan Davis
The Truth Contributor

The 90s was a great time to be alive in America according to the Generation X that gathered at the Uptown Green on Madison last Saturday. As the sun was setting, food trucks were lined up on the street and DJ Lyte N Rod already had the pavement pounding with hype beats from artists like Usher, MJ, Blackstreet, Jodeci and TLC.

This event, coordinated by local Artists Tracy TheRarebreed Haynes, Shannon McIntyre, and Lance Self created a vibe that people are still talking about. The city of Toledo came out rocking their flyest 90s gear from overalls to fanny packs to Coogi sweaters and Herringbone necklaces.

There was no shortage of fashion throwbacks, hairstyles or music. Everything that was hot then, was back like it never left. Ty Cleveland, who attended, commented, Is there a part TWO? Dance battles, good music, people loving and hugging one another... it was EVERYTHING. Can these vibes just stay? This sentiment was echoed throughout the night for partygoers.

From 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM there were vendors such as Toledope, Mustache Mikes and a Diamond In the Rough as well as live music from Wall Music, Toledos premier live band featuring artists Jasmine Renee, Anitra Chery, Marcus Redell and Sasha Denise rocking the mic with melodies from Erykah Badu, SWV, The Fugees, Mint Condition and Tracy sang EUs (Doing Da Butt) a dance classic.

It was great to see so many faces and I met a few people as well. Please don't tease us, making this a one time thing. Y'all have to run this back again next year! Jimmie Hayes reviewed. This one night only jam was a family reunion, house party and concert all in one, and it was free to the public, welcoming hundreds of guests who partied until the sun went down and beyond.

Bringing Back the 90s Park Jam was sponsored by Promedica, The Arts Commission, The Ohio Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
