Souls of Mischief took over Falmouth’s Princess Pavilion for the 16th stop of their 93 ’Til Infinity tour.
Since becoming a world wide hip-hop sensation in the 90’s, it’s certain that this talented group have plenty of tour stories already, no pun intended. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of ’93 ’Til Infinity,’ SOM brought their energy to the stage.
A-Plus, Opio, Phesto and Tajai pulled up to the stage in their matching tour coats and bucket hats; their spirit was contagious. Opening the show with ‘Thats When Ya Lost’, the crowd was bumping. Seeing Souls of Mischief is a once in a life time show for hip-hop fans, and the crowd was filled with people grooving and smiling from ear to ear. The sell-out crowd was fans of all ages, old and new, from uni and college students to adults who have been fans since day one.
Every song had the crowd captivated and stepping with highlights including ‘Tour Stories,’ ‘Step to my Girl’ and ‘Let em Know.’ You know the fan base is real when you can hear everyone around you rapping along word for word. Not to mention ’93 ’Til Infinity’, which is clearly a favourite. The whole crowd was totally obsessed! All eyes were on the stage and Souls of Mischief smashed it.
Before performing ’93’ Til infinity’ the band said words of dedication to a Tribe Called Quest’s Malik Izzak Taylor, aka Phife Dawg, who passed away in 2016. It is clear that this song means a lot to the band and to the audience and the group put so much love and energy into the performance. It was a wonderful tribute to Phife Dawg.
It was truly amazing to see Souls of Mischief live, feeling the bass take over Falmouth and getting lost in the music, whilst dancing with all your mates. The richness of their vocals and the swag they have is really felt through their music and seen in their confident stage presence. No doubt their music will be played from 93 until infinity.
