The Sugarhill Gang is a hip-hop group from the 70s and 80s. They are credited with releasing hip-hop’s first single to find a mainstream audience beyond the hip-hop scene with their song “Rapper’s Delight”, the very first rap song to hit the Top 40. By the mid-80s, the group faded away as the hip-hop scene began to expand and transform itself.

Forming in 1973 The members, all from Englewood, New Jersey, consisted of Michael “Wonder Mike” Wright, Henry “Big Bank Hank” Jackson, and Guy “Master Gee” O’Brien. The three were assembled into a group by producer Sylvia Robinson, who founded Sugar Hill Records with her husband, record mogul Joe Robinson. The group and the record company are named after the Sugar Hill, Manhattan neighborhood.

Amongst the most faithful musicians at the side of Bruce Springsteen since his earliest shows, Steven Van Zandt begun his solo career in the Eighties and issued 5 studio albums as Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul. In April 2002 he started his weekly radio programme Little Steven’s Underground Garage, broadcast on more than 200 stations worldwide: a two hour trip of what was cool in all six decades of Rock and Roll, and also features the best emerging bands worldwide. The success of the radio show has allowed Little Steven’s Underground Garage to expand beyond the world of radio into television, live events, albums, satellite radio, and more.

After his role in The Sopranos, Steven continued his TV career: he starred, co-wrote, executive produced, provided the music supervision and scoring, and directed for Lilyhammer, which was the first original programming for Netflix, winning several international prizes. Lastly, he is also a live promoter, activist and founder of the label Wicked Cool Records.

Cheap Trick is part of the very fiber of American music, inspiring and delighting generations with their unique union of massive melodies and razorblade riffs, their own special brand of mischievous wit and maximum rock ‘n’ roll. Frontlined since 1974 by Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), and Tom Petersson (bass guitar), the Rockford, IL-born band is set to impact still another era with the spectacular new BANG ZOOM CRAZY…HELLO, their 17th studio collection and first in more than five years. Co-produced by Cheap Trick and GRAMMY® Award winner Julian Raymond (Glen Campbell, Fastball), songs like “Heart On The Line” and the turbulent first single, “When I Wake Up Tomorrow,” are deeply connected to the band’s own irrepressible history just as they accelerate their trademark sound and vision into the now. The glorious “Long Time No See Ya” marks another in a long line of salutations spanning “ELO Kiddies” and “Hello There” to “Goodnight” and “Say Goodbye,” while the piledriving “Do You Believe Me” showcases dueling solos from Nielsen and six-string icon Wayne Kramer – a milestone meeting of the long established Midwestern mutual appreciation society between Cheap Trick and the mighty MC5. BANG ZOOM CRAZY…HELLO prove Cheap Trick to be as energetic and idiosyncratically irresistible as ever before, a callback to their classic canon yet somehow as inventive and exciting as a bunch of crazy kids just coming out of the garage.
