“For many music fans, the ’90s is considered a golden era for R&B,” said event organizer Brian Johnson. “Love U will be a night of feel-good nostalgia and a whole lot of dancing.”

You can expect to hear critically acclaimed hits from throughout the 1990s by artists including Usher, Destiny's Child, TLC, Whitney Houston, Jade, Monica, Jennifer Lopez, Aaliyah, and more. Requests can be made beforehand on the Yellow Cab's Facebook event.
