Hippodrome boosts the holiday spirits

As expected, even on a busy night,  Hippodrome’s return to the Slice, Dec. 18 was  packed to the rafters with disco ducks Hippodrome members grin their way through a song. Photo by Richard Ameryand dancers.

 While I don’t like vapid disco music as a general rule, I have to admit it is pretty happy music, especially when played  by Hippodrome.

That was properly conveyed on stage by band members Erica Hunt, Shawna Romolliwa and frontman Juran Greene who sported ear-to-ear grins throughout their set.

The band’s second set started off slow, but they had the dance floor filled with people jumping to  an unstoppable funky groove by the end of their second song, ‘Play That Funky Music White Boy.’

 They played their usual assortment of popular R and B and disco hits like  “That’s The Way I Like It,” and a catchy Jacksons’ song called ‘Blame it On The Boogie,’ as well as added  an original “Hook , Line and Sinker,” which had the crowd hooked from the start.

 The band was tight as usual with grooves and lots of horns and vocal harmonies,  and lots of energy on stage.
