It’s the closest thing to time travel we’ve got! Q105 is excited to welcome back Freestyle Explosion Throwback Jam Saturday, August 10 at Amalie Arena in Tampa. Go back to those days of Spring Love as Stevie B brings his entourage of the best freestyle, pop and dance acts from the 80s and 90s. You’re probably wondering who’s going to be on stage this year. More on that in a minute.

OK! With all that business out of the way, are you ready to see who’s performing at Freestyle Explosion Throwback Jam this year?

  • Stevie B

    You simply can’t leave the King of Freestyle off the list. Of course the legendary Stevie B will be there performing all of his classics like Spring Love, Party Your Body, Because I Love You, Dreamin’ Of Love, In My Eyes, and I Wanna Be The One.

  • Lisa Lisa

    We’re so excited that Lisa’s back on the bill this year!  She’ll get the Amalie Arena crowd up and dancing with iconic jams like Head to Toe, Can You Feel The Beat, Lost In Emotion, Let The Beat Hit ‘Em and I Wonder If I Take You Home.  Don’t forget her awesome slow jams too like All Cried Out!

  • Expose

    They’re back!  Expose has so many mega hits from the 80s dance club classics like Come Go With Me, Let Me Be The One, and Point of No Return.  But don’t forget their great slow jams too like I’ll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me and Seasons Change.

  • TKA

    While the Freestyle Explosion lineup rotates from year to year, I’m pumped these guys are still on the performer list every year.  No other throwback group brings the energy like the guys from TKA.  So many great songs like One Way Love, Tears May Fall and of course a Q105 Saturday Night Dance Party favorite, Maria.

  • K7

    And when you have TKA, don’t forget you have K7.  He always works in his 90s club anthem “Come Baby Come.”

  • George Lamond

    Known for his smash “Bad of the Heart,” George made a surprise appearance at Freestyle Explosion Throwback Jam at Amalie Arena a couple years ago.  As you may know, George is a hometown favorite.  When I spotted him backstage, I had an idea.  I told the audience we’d get back to the show momentarily, but first my buddy George from Wesley Chapel would like a chance to perform.  And then this happened…

  • Lime

    This might be the act I’m most pumped to see. I’ve never seen Lime on stage before.  Their classic “Babe We’re Gonna Love Tonight” is one of my favorites.

  • Will To Power

    Another one I’ve never had a chance to see live… Will To Power had their biggest hit with the cover of “Baby I Love Your Way” in the 80s.  But don’t forget their club classics like “Dreamin’!”

  • Sweet Sensation

    Amalie Arena is gonna go wild when Betty Dee hits the stage to perform jams like Hooked On You, Never Let You Go, Love Child, Sincerely Yours, Take It While It’s Hot and her slow jam If Wishes Came True.

  • Nocera

    Another act I’ve never been able to see perform live!  If the name Nocera doesn’t ring a bell, certainly her 1986 freestyle anthem “Summertime Summertime” will.
