No group is more synonymous with the act of pioneering hip-hop's journey into the mainstream than the superstars of The Sugarhill Gang. Famously recorded in a single take and running 14 minutes and 35 seconds, The Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" supplied the bang-bang boogie to popular music in 1979 as the first hip-hop single to hit the Billboard Hot 100. NPR called that seminal single one of the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century, and since its release, the band has released five studio albums, nine compilation and live discs, and 15 singles, including "8th Wonder," "Apache" and "The Lover in You." Experience this legendary group in concert at the B.B. King Blues Club in New York City.
