Motownphilly takes over Taste of Colorado
Taste of Colorado 2011 ended with the most popular R&B band of all time this Labor Day weekend as Boyz II Men performed more than a dozen chart topping songs to tens of thousands of people in downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park.
The event, hosted by Jammin 101.5’s DJ Slim, had many VIPS including Denver’s First Lady, Mary Louise Lee-Hancock. The Boyz performed all the classics for their dedicated fans from “On Bended Knee” to “I’ll Make Love To You” and “Motownphilly.” Even Metromix Denver got in on the action shakin’ our groove thing as we snapped pics of the cool kids.
Elsewhere, Opie Gone Bad rocked the Variety Stage while fans sipped beer and danced to its own brand of funk. By the end of the night, the vendors declared yet another successful year for “The Taste” and told us they were looking forward to next year’s festival.
Bottoms up to the hundreds of thousands who attended this Labor Day Weekend and thanks for taking the time out to get flashed by our Metromix camera! —Laura Kelley, Special to Metromix
