Dig out those Chuck Taylors, clip on your Tamagotchi and take a trip back to the 1990s with The Fresh Kids of Bel-Air as they bring the flavor of the decade to The Paramount on June 10.

The group is based in New York City, but two of its singers hail from Long Island, Gabriel Wiernik, of Hicksville, and Estee Hadzikostas, of Montauk.

They’ll be singing and performing the greatest pop hits of the ’90s, complete with costume changes to match each song. Wiernik, who recalled dressing up like Baby Spice as a kid, said she now loves playing the role of Gwen Stefani the most.

“When we get on stage, we emulate them as best as we can. We dress up like them and make them feel like they’re reliving that experience,” Wiernik said.

Hadzikostas herself was more into the grunge scene, and still fits herself with flannel today. Among her favorite tunes to play is “I Will Always Love You,” by Whitney Houston.

“They can expect a really awesome time, we definitely get the crowd jumping around and singing all their favorite 90s tunes. It’s a blast, honestly,” Hadzikostas said. “It’s like reliving my childhood.”

Bandmates Mat, Robin, Charlie, Oscar and Tommy, each bring their own ’90s flair and spin on the decade. Fresh Kids also has a residency at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City.

The show at The Paramount is set to begin at 8 p.m. Doors will open at 7 p.m., and tickets are available at the box office or from Paramountny.com for $15-$30.
