Hundreds filled the Peterson Event Center in Oakland to see the “I Love The 90s” concert featuring Vanilla Ice and Salt N Pepa with DJ Spinderella took place Saturday, Sept. 24.

The concert began at 8 p.m. with a few select opening acts, and old school music delivered by the DJ.

“I really enjoyed the concert. I wasn’t sure how it would go because it’s been years since I seen Salt N Pepa perform live. But I had fun. They killed it,” said event attendee Ronneisha Roy.

The crowd rocked out to all sorts of music from the 1990’s such as; Biggie Smalls, Tupac, OPP, The Chronic, Jay Z, Snoop Dog, Missy Elliot, Conspiracy, and more.

“I couldn’t wait to see my girls perform their hit song ‘Push It’ I love that song! My and my friends performed to that song back in the day in our high school talent show. I had a ball, and Salt N Pepa still look great,” said event attendee Chay’onna Jones.

The group Salt N Pepa was formed in 1985, Cheryl James (Salt), Sandra Denton (Pepa), and Deidra Roper (DJ Spinderella). Robert Van Winkle, better known as Vanilla Ice graced the stage and performed his hit songs “Hooked,” “Play That Funky Music,” “Ice Ice Baby,” and more.



“Vanilla Ice is still a crowd pleaser. Great show,” Matthew Jamison said.

“This new music in 2016 has nothing on the jams of the 90’s. This concert is proof that 90’s was the best time for music. I was on my feet the entire time. Me and my friends couldn’t sit down. No complaints, I had a great time,” Tami Finnigan concert attendee said.

Salt N Pepa recently celebrated their 30th anniversary.

Salt, Cheryl James said, “We want to thank our fans from the bottom of hearts. We love you for loving us. God Bless you guys, and keep the faith and keep striving for what you believe in.”
