Rapper Vanilla Ice, rap duo Kid ’N Play and rhythm-and-blues group Color Me Badd are a few of the acts lined up to perform at a 1990s-themed concert this fall in Paso Robles. They’re playing as part of “I Love The 90s” on Oct. 16 at Vina Robles Amphitheatre.

Vanilla Ice, who found fame with his chart-topping hit “Ice Ice Baby,” has supplemented his Grammy award-nominated hip-hop career with stints as an actor and television personality. (He’s the host of the DIY Network reality show “The Vanilla Ice Project.”)

Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin parlayed their success with such songs as “Gittin’ Funky” and “Rollin’ With Kid ’N Play” into movie careers, starring in “Class Act” and the “House Party” series. Color Me Badd, meanwhile, is best known for the song “I Wanna Sex You Up.”

Also scheduled to take the stage Oct. 16 are “Funky Cold Medina” rapper Tone Loc, “Bust a Move” rapper Young MC and All-4-One, the R&B/pop group behind the song “I Swear.”

Tickets for “I Love the 90s” cost $60 to $100 and go on sale at 10 a.m. May 14. Vina Robles Amphitheatre is at Vina Robles Vineyards & Winery, 3800 Mill Road. For information, call 805-227-4812 or visit www.vinaroblesamphitheatre.com.
