For several years now, New Jack Swing king Teddy Riley has been mired in a legal dispute with his former Blackstreet bandmate Chauncey Black. While Black has held the trademark rights to the name of the ’90s R&B group, Riley has refused to budge, performing with original member Dave Hollister also as Blackstreet — as will be the case tonight. Thankfully, the toughness of “No Diggity” defies legal impediments. And the unity is still strong with Bell Biv DeVoe, the New Edition offshoot famed for their indelible 1990 hit “Poison.” Their hi-top fades may be long gone, but they still make a soulful tag team, doing choreographed dance routines to early ’90s New Jack beats.
