Ricky Bell, Ron Devoe and Mike Bivins, aka Bell Biv Devoe, turned in a legendary performance at Chevy Court on Saturday night.

Probably no of us thought that within the New Edition franchise it would be Bell Biv DeVoe (BBD) who emerged as the most consistent spin-off.  And to make sure we don’t forget, Michael Bivins announced during the show that in 2015 BBD would be recording a new album, going out on tour, and even doing a television project.  How’s that for poison control!

Syracuse.com writer Chris Baker wrote a story today talking about the greatest New York State Fair concert moments of all time.

For our taste the 2009 visit by Hammer (aka MC Hammer, aka Stanley Burrell) still reverberates near Chevy Court. On a warm, muggy night in September the artist may have been past the peak of his superpowers, but he put on a show for the ages.  The Hip Hop experience featured a dozen or so dancers that nearly set the stage on fire. At one point he even invited about 50 audience members on stage with him for a finale that turned the mutha out.

Hard to believe, but the show was free (with admission to the Fair) and the seating was first come-first serve.
