STATE THEATRE PRESENTS SALT-N-PEPA

(New Brunswick, NJ) -- State Theatre presents Salt-n-Pepa on Thursday, August 29, 2013 at 8pm. Salt-n-Pepa's hits include "Push It," "Let's Talk About Sex," "Shoop," and "Whatta Man." Tickets range from $35-65.


Since the release of the multi-platinum album Hot, Cool, Vicious, over 25 years ago, Salt-n-Pepa (a.k.a. Cheryl James and Sandy Denton) have transformed and changed the face of hip-hop. With singles like, "Push It," "Shake Your Thang," "Shoop," and "Whatta Man" Salt-n-Pepa have broken barriers and brought hip-hop to new levels. They were the first female rappers to ever receive a Grammy and were also one of the first and few rappers to have ever performed on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Salt-n-Pepa have influenced millions with their music, paving the way for many aspiring artists. Over the years, Salt-n-Pepa has been empowering females not only in the music industry but as a whole, shouting messages of importance and respect. Along with their Oprah appearance, Salt-n-Pepa have appeared on many other television shows including VH1's Hop Hop Honors in 2004 and their own show on VH1, The Salt-n-Pepa Show in 2007.
