January 5, 2011
“We are pleased to add Rob Base to a list of talented performers providing game entertainment at our home games this season,” said Harlan Hendrickson, Vice President of Lifestyle Marketing for Palace Sports & Entertainment and the Pistons. “We look forward to his performance during the Pistons game on Tuesday, January 10 when the Pistons host the World Champion Dallas Mavericks.”
Base (with DJ E-Z Rock) is best known for his 1988 platinum hip-hop classic “It Takes Two” and 1989 release “Joy and Pain,” riding the hit-making songs onto R&B radio stations as well as dance clubs while providing a touchstone style known as hip-house.
“It Takes Two” became a street sensation upon its release in mid-1988. The single reached the R&B Top 20 and Pop Top-40, ultimately going platinum and earning Base and DJ E-Z Rock Single of the Year honors both in Spin and The Village Voice.
