Kurtis Blow / Paragon Theatre
Cafe Soul brought Kurt Walker, professionally known by his stage name Kurtis Blow, is an American rapper and record producer. He is the first commercially successful rapper and the first to sign with a major record label. Kurtis put on an excellent performance and gave the 500+ in attendance everything they could desire. On stage for nearly 45 minutes, Mr. Blow mixed in a little old school with the new school and with his patented, "somebody scream" the Paragon Theatre could not have been rewarded with a better legendary figure.
