Kick off the weekend with some fresh air while you drink in the sounds at this monthly musical get-happy hour. The Friday Freshen Up series takes place in West Harlem Piers Park on the last Friday of the month, May-August.

May 29 Kelly Zullo / Funk-slap-hammer-on acoustic guitar

Guitar World Magazine calls her music "An energetic acoustic guitar assault by this skilled, funky speed demon." Zullo approaches the ‘one man band set’ with a focused frenzy on the acoustic guitar technique and songs they are centered around. A standout from many one-individual shows, Zullo slaps and picks her acoustic at lightning speeds, weaving in and out of the loops on live drums she played just moments earlier. Her feet simultaneously play the bass via midi foot pedals.

Summer on the Hudson's Children’s Performance Series runs on Thursdays from July 2 to July 30.

This event includes music, storytelling, and theater for young audiences up to age 7. Wear sunscreen! Stroller parking in designated area is mandatory.

Moona Luna is the kindie group that the New York Daily News says is providing “the missing soundtrack for bilingual/bicultural kids.” After making a splash on the family music scene with their accordion-driven, Latin-inspired debut album, Piñata Party (2011), Moona Luna delivered something fresh in its sophomore album, Vamos, Let's Go! (2013). Songwriter and bandleader, Sandra Velasquez, found inspiration in American pop hits of the 50’s and 60’s, and staying true to her bilingual mission, crafted Spanish and English lyrics for each song. Having bilingual lyrics is just the icing on the cake because the tunes are so finger-snapping good and cater to extremely wide audiences.

Live, Banda Magda bursts with humor and quirky sensibility, powered by a unflagging energy. This group of close musical friends turn Giannikou’s songs into engaging romps that have won them a spot with Carnegie Hall Musical Explorers Series, as well as performances at discerning venues and festivals such as Webster Hall, Irving Plaza, The Kennedy Center, The Jefferson Center, Celebrate Brooklyn, Jazz al Parque, St. Moritz Festival Da Jazz, and the Chicago World Music Festival.
