<![CDATA[SummerStage Presents: Lisette Melendez / Coro / George Lamond / hosted by Mick Benzo in association with Universal Zulu Nation and the 40th anniversary of Hip-Hop culture]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/30/summerstage-lisette-melendez-coro-george-lamond- http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/30/summerstage-lisette-melendez-coro-george-lamond- Date: July 30, 2014

Lisette Melendez is an American freestyle/Latin pop/dance-pop singer. Her debut album Together Forever was propelled to gold status after her smash hits "Together Forever" and "A Day In My Life (Without You)" both sold over 700,000 copies in 1991. Both songs were such big dance music hits that they are credited as helping renew interest in Freestyle music in the early 90s, which had been fading in popularity due to the rise of mainstream pop music and grunge at the time. Melendez was born and raised in East Harlem. Melendez' childhood inspirations include her mother and aunt, who sang in a church choir and community theater. As a teenager she honed her singing voice by emulating Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler. In high school she became a fan of Puerto Rican freestyle music singer Lisa Lisa who had many dance hits. Melendez, also of Puerto Rican descent, was inspired by Lisa Lisa's success. In 2008 Lisette teamed up with famed music producer Carlos "After Dark" Berrios and performed two new tracks "I Need a Lover" and "Don't Ever Say" on albums Don't Look Back Sessions One &Two.

Coro is a Latin freestyle singer and actor of Cuban and Dominican heritage, who first had roles in numerous episodes of the star's hit television series, Miami Vice. While appearing on Vice, Coro struggled to put together a group to get his singing career off the ground. His first efforts never took off, but in 1987, Coro met Stevie B, who was enjoying the success of his first hit record and getting ready to tour. After a stint as a backup vocalist and dancer for Stevie B, the New York-born and Miami-raised Coro made the move back to his native Manhattan to initiate a solo singing career. Coro partnered with freestyle music producers Zahid Tariq and Todd Terry in 1989,. Coro's first single, "Where Are You Tonight", became the #1 dance record in New York and Florida. The song reached the Top 25 on Billboard 's club chart and put Coro on the road doing shows in dance clubs across the country. On his self-titled debut album, Coro collaborated with producers Zahid Tariq and Ziggy Gonzalez to create a selection of up-tempo dance tunes like "Can't Let You Go", "Where Are You tonight", "My Fallen Angel" and ballads such as "Missing You".

George Lamond began singing backup for various artists before landing a solo deal with Columbia Records. Lamond is known for his lyrical spinto tenor vocal quality, not found in most tenors of today. His first album, Bad of the Heart, released in 1990, had underground dance hits like "Bad of the Heart", "Look Into My Eyes" and "Without You". Lamond has also released a couple of salsa albums and scored a number of hits on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks. 2001 saw the release of his highly acclaimed salsa album GL on Sony Records, and in 2006, Lamond returned with the release of his album Oye Mi Canto, bringing a new sound to his music career. The album was a combination of reggaeton, bachata and salsa, with seven songs produced by G1E Productions. In 2008, Lamond released a new single, "What is Love", on an album titled Don't Look Back - Session 2 produced by famed freestyle producer, Carlos "After Dark" Berrios, and a cover of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin", released on Robbins Entertainment and produced by Giuseppe D. Lamond is featured on the Lucas Prata cover of Level 42's "Something About You", found on Prata's Never Stop Dreamin' album, also produced by Giuseppe D.

Mickey Bentson aka Mick Benzo owns and runs rap-oriented Pay Up Management. He was one of the founding members of the Zulu Nation, arguably the most important catalyst for hip hop. He has previously managed Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Everland and Big Punisher, and he now manages Ice-T and Fat Joe.

Urban Theatre Movement's Handball, written by Seth Zvi Rosenfeld and directed by Brenda Banda delivers an explosive take on gentrification in New York City. The play tracks a park filled with characters as unique and diverse as the city itself. Tempers flare as new transplants work to make their mark while old residents struggle to maintain their way of life. Over the course of two hot, summer days we watch a once lively, buoyant park become extremely tense as each character struggles to find their way and survive while witnessing their neighborhood falling apart. Stories become intertwined, power is shifted and change reveals itself to be inevitable. Handball tells the story of modern-day urban America and the people struggling to find their way in it.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Rockaway!, a free public arts festival sponsored by the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy (JBRPC) to celebrate the reopening of Fort Tilden and recognize the ongoing recovery of the Rockaway peninsula, opens June 29 and continues through September 1, 2014. Invited by the Rockaway Artists Alliance (RAA), an association of artists based in and around the Rockaways, and the JBRPC, MoMA PS1 has assisted and supported the conception of this festival.

One component of the festival is a group exhibition organized in collaboration with the Honolulu Biennial on the grounds of the newly restored Rockaway Beach Surf Club on Beach 87th Street in Rockaway Beach.

This week, listen to stories that give you a bug’s-eye-view of the world, and then join us as we wiggle, flutter and dance like some of the garden’s tiniest inhabitants. Our books this week are The Very Quiet Cricket by Eric Carle, The Snail’s Spell by Joanne Ryder and Under One Rock by Anthony D. Fredericks.

The Winter's Tale by William Shakespeare, Directed by Nicholas Martin-Smith

Written late in William Shakespeare’s career, The Winter’s Tale (1609-1611) is a story of jealousy, loss, and redemption. Leontes, the King of Sicily, believes his pregnant wife is carrying his best friend’s love child. Leontes’s jealousy turns to tyranny as the king proceeds to destroy his entire family and a lifelong friendship. Sixteen long years pass, and we witness one of the most astonishing endings in English literature. (summary via Shmoop dot com)

<![CDATA[SummerStage Presents: Joe Bataan / Boogaloo Assassins / DJ Turmix]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/31/summerstage-joe-bataan-boogaloo-assassins-dj-turmix http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/31/summerstage-joe-bataan-boogaloo-assassins-dj-turmix Date: July 31, 2014

Joe Bataan, the “King of Latin Soul,” helped coin the phrase "Salsoul" in 1974 lending the name to his first album. Bataan was influenced by two musical styles: the Latin boogaloo and African American doo-wop. Bataan recorded three albums and several singles for Salsoul Records and the Latin subdivision of Salsoul Records, Salsoul Leyendas. Titles include SalSoul, Rap-O-Clap-O, Joe Bataan II, Afrofilipino and a new compilation of his greatest hits titled Tropical Classics: Joe Bataan, which features the early 1979 hip-hop hit "Rap-O-Clap-O” and additional classic titles he performed for the Salsoul Leyendas label.

For the 11-piece Boogaloo Assassins the mission is simple: bring la gente a funky good time, Latin-soul style. Formed in Los Angeles in 2007, Boogaloo Assassins are the West Coast’s answer to New York City’s Latin music explosion of the late 1960s. Heavily indebted to the classic sounds of Spanish Harlem, Los Asesinos serve up their own late 1960’s-style salsa and “Latin Boogaloo”, best described as a raucous fusion of American R&B with Afro-Cuban rhythms, sung in both English and Spanish. Known throughout the West for their high-energy live shows, Boogaloo Assassins' debut recording "Old Love Dies Hard" features their hit single "No No No", a salsa version of the blues/reggae classic, featured on Gilles Peterson's BBC-1, Los Angeles's leading public radio station KCRW, and many others. As of Spring 2014, Boogaloo Assassins have hit both the road and the recording studio with new rock'n'roll phenom Nick Waterhouse.

NYC-based DJ Turmix is a Barcelona native who has been exciting music fans worldwide with his superb sessions for more than 20 years. He is vinyl collector and a specialist in 60's musical styles, from Latin boogaloo, to latin soul and other afrocuban rhythms. Turmix has also been instrumental in the recent latin boogaloo revival in NYC, spinning his extraordinary parties and sets all over NYC, as a collaborator with the famed Fania Records.

Wind down after a long day with a 50-minute Om Factory yoga class every Thursday starting at 7 p.m. on the North Plaza of Union Square Park. Vinyasa, which translates from Sanskrit to “flow” or “move in a special way,” merges movement with the breath. Flowing through sequences of synchronized breathing warms the body, allowing the practitioner to move deeper into postures and, over time, deeper into their personal practice. The class serves students at any level of experience from the yoga novice to the regular practitioner.

Urban Theatre Movement's Handball, written by Seth Zvi Rosenfeld and directed by Brenda Banda delivers an explosive take on gentrification in New York City. The play tracks a park filled with characters as unique and diverse as the city itself. Tempers flare as new transplants work to make their mark while old residents struggle to maintain their way of life. Over the course of two hot, summer days we watch a once lively, buoyant park become extremely tense as each character struggles to find their way and survive while witnessing their neighborhood falling apart. Stories become intertwined, power is shifted and change reveals itself to be inevitable. Handball tells the story of modern-day urban America and the people struggling to find their way in it.

Rockaway!, a free public arts festival sponsored by the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy (JBRPC) to celebrate the reopening of Fort Tilden and recognize the ongoing recovery of the Rockaway peninsula, opens June 29 and continues through September 1, 2014. Invited by the Rockaway Artists Alliance (RAA), an association of artists based in and around the Rockaways, and the JBRPC, MoMA PS1 has assisted and supported the conception of this festival.

One component of the festival is a group exhibition organized in collaboration with the Honolulu Biennial on the grounds of the newly restored Rockaway Beach Surf Club on Beach 87th Street in Rockaway Beach. Following Hurricane Sandy, the Surf Club was the one of the largest relief centers on the peninsula; their organization facilitated and directed over 5,000 volunteers, with major contributions from MoMA PS1. The exhibition celebrates the efforts of the Rockaway community of surfers and artists in rebuilding their neighborhood.

For details and times of the rest of the exhibit, please visit the Rockaway! website.
