Too White Crew - Chicago's All Live Hip Hop Tribute Band

90’s hip hop

Pro tip for bands who play at Crusens in Peoria…

Don’t book a show the night before. And definitely don’t book a show the night after. Carve out a few days to prepare (like, your will) and recover (doctor visits) hope the good lord is watching over you during your stay. Pray. See you this Saturday!

Crusens this Saturday!

Ballin’ on a Budget?

Joe’s Live in Rosemont is playing host to our 90’s hip hop sh*t show this Friday, August 26th and, well, if you’re having problems rubbing two nickels together – or if you just wanna shave a few bucks of your tab, we’re here for you! The first five people to invite at least fitty of their homies to Joe’s Facebook event for this show are gonna have their names at the door (read the rules first!).  No line, no cover. All ballin’. If you really wanna kick it, invite 100 and we’ll comp you and a guest.

Here are the rules…

  1. “Like” this post (scroll to the bottom) and “Like” Too White Crew on Facebook. Here’s the link.
  2. Send a message to the band’s FB page when you’re ready to invite your friends, but don’t invite your friends till you get a reply from the band! Be patient. Sometimes we pass out and stuff.
  3. Invite at least 50 people.  And don’t invite people who suck. We’ve all got FB friends who think smiling is a chore. Leave them out of this. Invite the story makers – the ones who fall into walls – then apologize to the wall…the ones that’ll rip the shot out of your hand and pound it because you took too long. THOSE friends.
  4. Let us know you’re done inviting people. We’ll check your work and put your name on the list.
  5. Spend that money on shots.
And no, if you invite 500, you don’t get 10 comps…but you WILL get a “Got Back?” tank at the show if you do! :
Get in for free

Mr. Belding & Too White Crew, together at last!

This is happening. We get to party with Mr. Belding and so can you on Saturday, June 11th! Special half price Reserved Seats are available by clicking on this link, then entering “TWC” as the Special Offer Code. Choose “Reserved Seats” and you’ll see the option to purchase tickets for only $6.50. We’re on from 4:45-6:00 and Mr. Belding will be available for pictures and autographs during the game. This is a very special family-oriented TWC show, so don’t expect us to be tilting forties and don’t plan on bum rushing the stage for a booty shake contest! Save that for our show in Rockford later that night!

The Amazing New Olive Garden Diet!

Yeaaaah, there sure as sh*t ain’t no Olive Garden diet, but we ARE playing at Austin’s Fuel Room in Libertyville this Saturday night, and that should feel about as good as horkin’ down a pile of breadsticks dipped in alfredo sauce.

The Return of DJ Shor T this Saturday!

We’ve got a lot to celebrate this Saturday and judging by the fact that all the tables are sold out at The Black Sheep in Orland Park, it looks like our fans are celebrating right along with us!

Many of you may know that our extra fly DJ Shor T took some time off from TWC to tackle her bout with breast cancer. Most people would have either quit or required at least six months off while they go through the typical medical procedures. But our pint-sized pillar of strength is anything but typical. Check out the path she took at www.aflygirl.com and you’ll see why she’s back in less than two months!

Please follow her on FB and if you can make it Saturday, get there early! Click on the image below to add your bad self to the Facebook invite…

“Name Our Fly Girl” contest!

We’ve brought in a new Fly Girl and she needs a name. Currently she goes by Kristen, but not for long. Because you’re gonna come up with her new name. What’s in it for you? A fresh pack of unopened “Yo! MTV Raps” cards from 1991, a “Got Back?” wife beater – both shipped directly to your crib…and mad bragging rights. She joins our Fly Girl lineup of: Juicebox, Hot Wheelz, Vitamin V, Lemon Drop and KitKat.

You’ve got two chances to see her this weekend, as we roll up north to Austin’s Fuel Room in Libertyville tonight and Blue Chip Casino Saturday night…after the Cubs win Game 1.

So here she is. You can either submit her name as a comment to this blog post or as a comment on the Facebook post. We’ll announce the winner on our Faceboook page. Ready, set, go.

NEW! New is good. 

We’ve got two new fests this weekend! This means plenty of WTF faces and grown ups dusting off dance moves that they thought were closeted forever (“fo’evuh, fo’evuh evuh?”). Friday’s show is at the Forest Park Music Fest and will be “all ages appropriate” so it’s shorty friendly. It’s right on Roosevelt Rd. and we’re on the east stage from 8-10PM. We’ll be heading to Doc Ryan’s to throw down after the show.

 

Saturday night is gonna snap like Rice Krispies. Plainfield always shows us mad love and now we’re playing their annual summer bash. Our homies the Modern Day Romeos are opening for us and we’re all wrecking shop in the beer garden. Which means it’s not all ages. Which means we get to throw DOWWWWWWWN. After party at MoeJoe’s!
