Beat box bash

Dauphin County commissioner George Hartwick III did it again.

Hartwick, along with Dauphin County, held another successful Cultural Fest (a free event in Harrisburg) with a national recording artist. This year’s headliner was none other than hip-hop vet Doug E. Fresh.

To get the crowd warmed up at the Aug. 2 concert, the DJ spun songs while Doug danced and spoke to the audience. The crowd sang in unison when the DJ played the “Cheers” theme song. That portion of the show was somewhat drawn-out. But by the time Doug began his beat boxing, he captivated the audience. He beat boxed hit songs like “Top Billin’” and “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See.”

The other highlights of the evening took place when Doug invited people on stage: First, he brought out surprise guest Vicious to perform “Freaks.” Next, the beat boxer asked some local children to come on stage to do the Dougie. The group Cali Swag District popularized the Dougie, a dance influenced by Doug’s moves. Doug allowed the children (young to older) to dance one at a time. The younger children proved to be the victor.
