RnB Vine Days
Rochford Wines, Melbourne

As the sun set over the picturesque Yarra Valley, there was a flood of nostalgia and just a little romance in the air as legends of RnB gathered amongst the grapes to bring RnB legends Blackstreet, Boyz II Men and TLC to the stage for RnB Vine Days.

The warm Melbourne evening was the perfect setting for what turned into a giant dance floor as Blackstreet got things going. The New York natives pulling out all stops to warm up the crowd and set the mood. The ‘ No Diggety’  singers making sure everyone was rump shaking.

Dressed in all white the original Philly gentlemen of Boyz II Men showed how to woo the ladies Philly style.  Opening with impressive dance moves it was all smooth and polished moved from the RnB legends.  A special moment for ladies of the audience as the gentlemen handed out long stem red roses for lucky girls. Noticing a wheel chair- bound female audience member is hand delivered a rose from Shaun Stockman, making her night memorable.  The ‘ End of the Road’ singers letting romance hang in the air as the sun set over the vineyard.

Making an entrance via backflipping dancers and stairs the First Ladies of RnB TLC take the stage to dominate in a flurry of yellow and black, clearly showing everyone how its done.  Addressing a young female audience member T-Boz reaches her that when she grows up she needs to stay away from any boys ‘ Hangin from the passenger side of his best friends ride’  she reminds us all about female empowerment and ‘ No Scrubs’ whipping the crowd into a frenzy. Saving the best for last with ‘ Waterfalls’ the ladies have taken us back to the golden days of RnB given the audience to forget their troubles for one evening under a sea of stars.
