These days, nostalgia for the 1990s has become its own cultural trend, manifesting in multiple places: fashion, naturally, but also rebooted TV shows and music.
Well, here at Cove Pocono Resorts we’re a pretty forward-thinking team, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like celebrating the styles, sounds, and memes of yesteryear—and inviting our coupled-up guests to join the party! Here’s one of those hearty invitations for a bit of sonic time travel, crossed with a very much here-and-now energy: Come join us for our ‘90s Throwback Weekend next March!
Three hip-hop legends that exploded onto the scene back in those defining days of the genre will deliver the unbeatable soundtrack: Naughty by Nature, Coolio, and Tone-Loc. It’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear some of the pioneers of rap do their thing on a let-it-all-hang-loose night at our luxurious Pocono resort!
The ‘90s overload takes place Sunday, March 18th, 2018 at Cove Haven. Lock down your accommodations with that special somebody of yours, and make the concert part of a full-on romantic getaway in the Land of Love!
Naughty by Nature
Can you even think of Naughty by Nature (NBN)—Treach, Vin Rock, and DJ Kay Gee—without the iconic beat of “O.P.P.” kicking off in your head? That smash anchored the trio’s 1991 self-titled breakout album, but it’s never really gone away—and for good reason.
Coolio, meanwhile, has maintained a steady presence in the pop-culture sphere since the mid-1990s; he is, of course, the creator of one of the most iconic rap songs of all time, “Gangsta’s Paradise.” (It also inspired one of the most iconic parody songs of all time, Weird Al Yankovic’s “Amish Paradise.”) Besides his recording and touring work, Coolio continues to be a familiar face on both the big and the small screens. In January 2017, he released the topical song “Kill Again”—which assesses gang violence and the state of being black in the United States—as part of his Long Live the Thief EP.
With “Wild Thing” and “Funky Cold Medina”—both of them co-written by Young MC—and an unmistakable raspy voice that became his signature, Tone-Loc barreled onto the Billboard charts double-whammy-style in 1989.
