Retro Video Review: Hop The Millennium

In a previous post I said that I’d put up a few clips from a tape of Hop the Millennium but then decided that the whole thing was too good and uploaded the whole thing.  The event took place over New Year’s 1999/2000 in Mexico City Ensenada, Mexico of all places.

There’s a lot of dancing goodness featuring the Rhythm Hot Shots which is the team that begat The Harlem Hot Shots.  Southern California represents with a piece by Rusty Frank & Peter Flahiff and another by Peter Loggins & Lisa Ferguson.  Keep an eye out for a pimpin performance by the father and son team of “Moke & Poke” a.k.a. Chazz Young and Frankie Manning.

    Don’t think it was in Mexico City, as I seem to recall that it was in one of the coastal resort towns.

      Good to know. I don’t know why I thought it was in Mexico City.
