We were lucky to have a special celebrity guest this year.  R&B singer, Montell Jordan, was in Sac for an old school show at Arco Arena that evening.  His bro Anthony is at the party every year, so Ant brought Montell to the party.  Montell is 6'8" and no slouch on the basketball court.  For those who don't know him, let me quote a little from Wiki regarding Montell's biggest hit song:   "This Is How We Do It" is a 1995 song by American R&B singer Montell Jordan. This song, Jordan's first single, is indicative of the hip-hop soul style popular at the time, featuring Jordan singing over an enhanced sample of Slick Rick's "Children's Story." "This is How We Do It" was number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 from April 15 to May 27, 1995 for seven weeks. The song has appeared on many dance compilations, including Jock Jams volume 2.  When played on Top 40 radio, the song's rap bridge is often edited out.  The song ranked #95 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s.
