Things To Do

Biz Markie leaves his "mark" on the Myrtle Beach Pelicans  He got what you need.

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans handed the Wilmington Blue Rocks their 11th straight loss old school style with their first-ever ‘Old School Hip Hop Night’, hosted by Biz Markie, an event that brought out the MC in all of us.

Markie, notable for his 1989 Billboard Hot 100 top-10 hit “Just a Friend”, as well as appearances on shows such as Yo Gabba Gabba, Spongebob Squarepants and Sharknado 2: The Scond One, among others, left his mark by singing the seventh inning stretch from the press box.

In the spirit of taking it old school, Field transformed into a magical place filled with boom boxes, parachute pants and bicycle hats. MC Hammer and Sidney Deane would’ve been proud.

The PA system blared hits by Run DMC, Rob Base and the Sugarhill Gang.

Pelicans staffers kept the spirit alive, dressing the part from head to toe. The fun didn’t stop there, as a group of break dancers performed on the main concourse while the group Studio 8 performed a pregame hip hop dance routine on the field.

After the game, the singer took some time to pose for pictures with fans and sign autographs before the Pelicans’ post-game fireworks show.
