Leap Back to the ’90s with Color Me Badd
It’s time to revisit big bangs, denim jackets and the boombox. Leap Back to the ‘90s as Color Me Badd rocks Memminger Auditorium in a concert benefiting the Charleston Parks Conservancy. The concert is 7-10 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 29.
Color Me Badd debuted in July 1991 with the album, “C.M.B.,” and such hit songs as “I Wanna Sex You Up,” “All 4 Love,” and “I Adore Mi Amor.” The band went on to release additional albums before splitting in November 1998.
In July 2010, Bryan Abrams and Mark Calderon resurrected Color Me Badd, headlining a concert in Hawaii. Kevin Thornton rejoined the band in 2011 and plans for additional concerts are under way.
In addition to the Color Me Badd favorites, guests will revisit the trends of the 1990s with additional music from the era as well as signature Michael Jackson and MC Hammer moves performed by local dancers. Also, take a look back at Charleston’s parks and their transformation since the early 1990s.
Parks are important to the members of Color Me Badd and they are eager to support an organization like the Conservancy.
“One of my fondest memories from my childhood is playing in the park with my dad, and now I get to share those moments with my children,” band member Mark Calderon says. “Whether that is playing basketball with my son, taking walks with my daughter or just taking a simple family stroll, these moments last forever and will always be ingrained in my mind. That’s why we support Charleston Parks Conservancy because it truly brings families together.
General admission tickets are $65 each and price includes an open bar. The Meet the Crew tickets are $150 each and include a pre-concert reception, open bar and a chance to meet the band after the show. The event is for ages 21 and over only.
