VANILLA ICE with special guest MAESTRO
The Ozone Nightclub - 7300 King George Highway, Surrey

Hey look guys - that TV star Robert van Winkle (also known as VANILLA ICE), you know, the guy from Celebrity Boxing, Hollywood Squares, The Farm and Surreal Life is coming to town to sing some songs. Yes folks, Rock.It Boy Entertainment presents the one and only VANILLA ICE plus special guest MAESTRO in concert on Wednesday, September 14th at The Ozone Nightclub in Surrey.

VANILLA ICE’s first album To The Extreme (SBK Records, 1990) featured the song ‘Ice Ice Baby’ and a cover of Wild Cherry’s ‘Play That Funky Music White Boy’ that propelled the album to #1 on the Billboard charts where it stayed for 16 weeks. The album went seven times platinum and eventually sold over 15 million copies. He put out three more albums - Extremely Live (1991), Cool as Ice (1991) and Mind Blowin (1994) - pioneered the art of sampling with his remake of the Queen/David Bowie classic ‘Under Pressure’ and then hit the proverbial superstar wall with a cocktail of gangsters, yachts, drugs and a woman called Madonna. Some would say he had his fun, but not the iceman.

He re-emerged with Hard to Swallow in 1998 and then Bi-Polar in 2001 and now the brand new album Platinum Underground (2005). Something has changed: VANILLA ICE is no longer a media image puppet but an artist in control of his destiny, creating a whole new career in film and television, while still doing the music that he loves. His music is a powerful crunch that blends his Rap roots with hard metal rock sounds that blow the lid off in concert. The second Ice Age continues.

MAESTRO still has the honour of holding the record for the biggest selling rap song in Canada with the classic ‘Let Your Backbone Slide’ which is also ranked in the top 15 Canadian songs ever released. His last album was called Ever Since because he has been putting it out ever since Rap landed, and his 1999 hit single, ‘Stick To Your Vision,’ based around a sample of the Guess Who's classic ‘These Eyes,’ has become an anthem for personal triumph, courage and tenacity.

Two great performers for the price of one! Rock.It Boy Entertainment presents VANILLA ICE with special guest MAESTRO in concert on Wednesday, September 14th at the Ozone Nightclub in Surrey (phone 604-596-8189). Advance tickets are $20.00 at all Ticketmaster outlets (charge–by-phone at 604-280-4444 or online at or $25.00 at the door. Doors open at 8PM.
