All about that Base

Sawyer’s continues to offer free —and worthwhile—concerts downtown.

On July 24, Rob Base performed at the Harrisburg-based venue. Base is mostly known for his 1988 party anthem “It Takes Two.” Horan Thomas attended the concert. “The show was a true party,” Thomas said. Thomas is a local DJ and producer.

Michele “Zulu Queen” Hairston has known Base for years. Hairston, a hip-hop educator/historian, member of the Universal Zulu Nation and photographer, reflects on Base’s visit to the Burg.

How was the show?
Phenomenal as always. A little different because the late DJ E-Z Rock, who has been friends with Rob Base since they were in grade school, wasn’t there.

What did you talk about when you hung out with Base and Lord Yoda of the Universal Zulu Nation?
Just catching up on old times. Since my spine injury, I haven’t been out and about. It was really good seeing them.
