There is simply no band anywhere like the Too Hype Crew. It is a tribute to 80’s and 90’s hip hop, featuring all live music from a six piece band, accompanied by choreographed “Fly Girl” dancers. It’s a party band – it’s a show – it’s art – it’s a house party on stage – all packaged in an unprecedented way.
This high energy, interactive show features the sites, the sounds, the moves, the fashion and antics of hip hop’s most colorful era. THC has opened for Nelly, Lil Jon, Flo Rida, Vanilla Ice, Jason Derulo, Big Sean, Naughty by Nature, Tone Loc, Digital Underground and many more.
Bocce Ball has quickly become a staple in the Village. Our seasonal Bocce Leagues have taken off and we are pleased to make Bocce a part of the Taste with the Annual Mayor’s Cup Bocce Tournament. The Winning Team receives a Team Trophy and more importantly bragging rights for the year. The top 4 teams receive Player medals
