Start.ca Rocks the Park has announced its third night of this year’s festival, teaming with 97.5 Virgin Radio to present the third edition of Flashback Friday 90’s night on Friday, July 12, featuring icon Snoop Dogg alongside support from Shaggy, MA$E, Ginuwine and Tone Loc.
“Need I say anything about this night?” said promoter Brad Jones of Jones Entertainment Group. “Over the past two years we have had record sell outs with our 90’s nights, so it only made sense to bring it back once again. It may just be a trend, but people are loving it and we love to see our park packed with people having a blast to their favourite throwback tracks. It was unfortunate that Shaggy had to cancel last year due to his opportunity with Sting, but we have been assured he wanted to come back and make it right for 2019.”

With over 20 years in the industry, Snoop’s ability to stay at the forefront of popular culture and new technology through hit records, brand partnerships, innovative digital strategies, philanthropy and more has resulted in unwavering relevance. Tracks like ‘What’s My Name’, ‘The Next Episode’, ‘Gin and Juice’ and ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ have confirmed Snoop as the world-renowned hip-hop artist he is today.

According best-selling R&B groundbreaker Ginuwine, just because it ain’t broke, don’t mean you can sit around and rest on your laurels. If you’re an artist, you’ve got to push yourself. Mature. Expand your creative horizons. And make sure your fifth album is at least as memorable and important as your first — and give it all the show-stopping soul power you’ve got.
Tone-Loc soared from obscurity into pop stardom in 1989 when his hoarse voice and unmistakable delivery made the song “Wild Thing” (using a sample from Van Halen’s “Jamie’s Cryin'”) a massive hit. The song was co-written by Marvin Young, better known as Young MC, as was the second single smash, “Funky Cold Medina.” The album Loc-ed After Dark became the second rap release ever to top the pop charts. Tone-Loc expanded his horizons into acting in 1992 and 1993, appearing a few times on the Fox sitcom Roc. He was also in the films Posse and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and in 1991 returned to recording with Cool Hand Loc.
