Video Music Box 25th Anniversary Concert Friday, July 18.

Cancel your weekend getaway to St. Tropez. Tell your wife the customary "Friday night date" will have to be on Saturday. Tell your boys the Boardy Barn will have to wait.

This Friday, July 18 will be the 25th Anniversary Concert/ Extravaganza for Ralph McDaniel's Video Music Box. A brief list of artists invited/expected to show up has been announced and it's going to be something special. For what Uncle Ralph has done for hip hop locally and throughout the world, the entire hip hop community should be provileged to get on that stage and pay homage. Now we all know that won't happen, but I'm sure a roster of hip hop luminaries, both past and present, will be on hand.

The roster so far is:

DJ Jazzy Joyce, The Crash Crew, TSki-Valley & Spoonie Gee, Luv Bug Starski, Sugar Hill Gang, Joe Ski Love, Entouch, Special Ed, Dana Dane, Naughty By Nature, DJ Clark Kent, Ralph Ray Dejon, OC, Chubb Rock, Jeru Da Damaja, Milk Dee, DJ Chuck Chillout, Jeff Redd, Red Alert, DJ Kid Capri, Nice N Smooth & Special Guests

This is a FREE Central Park Summerstage event. Will run from 7pm to 10pm at Rumsey Playfield- roughly 72nd Street. Since it's a FREE show get there early to guarantee entrance. For more information regarding the concert and Summerstage click HERE.

Here's a quick bio on Ralph McDaniels and his show. An informative 5 minutes.
