Dancehub Magazine were invited to attend “MÜS.I.C.”, performed by the world reknowned ABDC (America’s Best Dance Crew) Season 1 Winners, Jabbawockeez held at Jupiters Hotel & Casino on the Gold Coast last night. It’s fair to say that unless you are a true hip hop fan or watch Pay TV most Australian’s would not know of Jabbawockeez and the justified hype that surrounds them.
As a mid 40′s male, pay TV fan and non-dancer I was keen to watch this crew perform on stage given their stage history. We planned to attend the show some weeks ago and drove over 2 hours to watch them perform. Critics posted comments such as “High energy entertainment” and “AMAZING”. I was excited to see the first dance show from Las Vegas brought to Australian shores.
What happens next defied belief. The seven core members of Jabbawockeez enter the stage and continue to perform routine after routine with song choices that span decades. Inspiration is drawn from Fred Astair to Coldplay, old school dance crews like “Rock Steady Crew” and even movie soundtracks from “Breakdance” in the 80′s.
The choreography, lighting, stage design and even costumes are totally managed by the crew and this simply illustrates their collective creative genius as artists. We have been lucky to see world class shows across multiple genres. Every now and then something comes along that raises the hair on the back of your neck. “Jabbawockeez and MÜS.I.C” is a hair raiser. Sometimes giving 5 stars isn’t enough.
