The chance to witness a live performance of one song, Ginuwine’s “Pony” – equestrian metaphor-strewn erotic lyrics and all – alone is worth the price of admission.

Ginuwine is back in the saddle. And his slot on the ’90s R&B revival tour circuit came courtesy of Hollywood and pop culture.
Actor Channing Tatum played Michael “Magic Mike” Lane, a stripper at Xquisite, in a 2012 comedy. Tatum’s steamy performance to Ginuwine’s hook-up paean “Pony” was a zeitgeist trigger in and of itself.
Then, Jenna Dewan-Tatum gave her husband a lap dance to the song during a reality series lip-sync battle. Cue the comeback. Relive the Timbaland-produced ’90s playground that defined a musical moment in time – a nostalgia I bet I’m not alone in indulging.
Ginuwine appears at Posh Nightclub (405 Central NW) on Saturday, May 21. Jet City “Pop-N-B” up-and-comer Karlos Farrar and Southwest-based R&B stalwart David Wade are also on the lineup. Doors are at 6:30 p.m., and the concert wraps at 11:45 p.m.
The chance to witness a live performance of one song, Ginuwine’s “Pony” – equestrian metaphor-strewn erotic lyrics and all – is worth the price of admission but expect other hits from his catalog to be repped. Tickets range from $25 to $120 for a meet-and-greet with VIP seating.
