Wellmont welcomes Freestyle legends.
Coming to the Wellmont Theater on Aug. 9 is the First Annual Freestyle Jersey Jam, presented by Brian Rosenberg in association with Fever Entertainment. This performance is set to feature a multitude of great artists, including: TKA, Lisa Lisa, George Lamond, Sugar Hill Gang, Cynthia, Johnny O, Cover Girls, Noel, Soave and special guest DJ Mickey Garcia.
Two of the most featured artists at the Wellmont Jam are TKA and Lisa Lisa. TKA is an American-Latin freestyle trio that was well-known throughout the 80s. The group stopped performing in the early 90s until they got back together in 2001 to record their album Forever. TKA has often been referred to as the “kings” of the freestyle genre.
Lisa Lisa and her band, Cult Jam, are an urban contemporary band and one of first freestyle music groups to emerge from New York City in the 1980s, according to their website. In 2009, Lisa Lisa released the album Life ‘n Love, even featuring Pitbull on one of the tracks. Lisa Lisa’s original albums reached Platinum status in the US and Gold status in Canada. Lisa Lisa is sure to get the Wellmont crowd pumping.
