Catch some of the city’s grooviest acts for an evening of tunes that will get you moving! This summer, Brooklyn Bodega brings some of New York’s most exciting musicians to Pier 1 for our Bridge Grooves music series.
On July 20, PitchBlak Brass Band joins Maurice “Mobetta” Brown and DJ OP! for a concert that’s sure to get you out of your seat!
PitchBlak Brass Band, a Brooklyn based, Hip-Hop infused ten-piece brass band, marries the sounds of tubas, trombones, saxophones and other typically non-hip-hop instruments in the spirit of The Roots and some of rap’s iconic live bands, to deliver an energy that samples, loops and breakbeats can’t always capture.
DJ OP! is a founding member of the heralded I Love Vinyl Party and a co-partner of the long established Afrokinetic party in NYC. As a purveyor of all things soulful, OP!’s sets include hip-hop, r&b, reggae, pop, rock, and classics to house, future soul, and various electronic genres from the UK and musical flavors from Africa.
Head to Pier 1 at 7pm to grab a spot on Harbor View Lawn and enjoy the sunset, the view, and of course, the music!
