Smokey Hormel and his stellar New York band—Smokey on guitars; David Hofstra on bass and tuba; Davi Viera, Tony Mola and Meia Noite on percussion; Doug Weiselman on clarinet and baritone sax; and Clark Gayton on trombone—resurrect songs from the dance halls of Africa, Brazil, and the Caribbean of the ‘50s and ‘60s with electric guitar, tuba, trombone, clarinet, percussion, and more.

Says Smokey himself, "It's that magical moment just before the heavy influence of American Soul, Funk and Rock and Roll, the pre-James Brown era of urban African dance music. There are no big drum kits, no loud amplifiers, just wild guitars bursting through small amps afloat on a sea of hand drums and shakers, often with a very distorted bass or maybe even a tuba pulsating underneath it all. It's more Latin than western. It's not Funk. It's Cha Cha, Mambo and Rhumbas, and it all has that very contagious and danceable groove."

Sunset Wednesdays take place rain or shine! All Sunset Wednesday Concerts are held on the Great Lawn. In case of inclement weather, concerts will be moved indoors to Armor Hall with overflow space in the Mark Twain Room and the covered terrace behind Wave Hill House.

Kick back with a blanket or a beach chair for our free summer concerts!

With the generous support of the Richmond County Savings Foundation, you’ll get to groove to tunes from your favorite local bands with your friends and family—plus play games, eat delicious food, enjoy a beer and wine tasting from Flagship Brewery and Honor Wines, and more.

Buster Poindexter (nee David Johansen) first attracted attention as a glam rock pioneer (in the New York Dolls, with whom he still tours) and then as an early MTV idol (with “Hot Hot Hot”).

Yet with his big, deep, resonant voice, Buster Poindexter is most impressive as a crooner and occasional belter of ballads in the classic R&B tradition. His ongoing run affirms the point that however you know him, the artist known as Buster Poindexter, complete with his one-liners and longer comic monologues (not to mention his signature pompadour), is one of the most endearing and enduring entertainers currently trodding the boards in New York.

Opening act Maker Park Radio is a community internet radio broadcasting out of the Staten Island Makerspace. MakerParkRadio.nyc is dedicated to providing free music and live arts programming by broadcasting selected two hour shows that are diverse and inclusive of many genres and sub-genres. On July 28, Maker Park Radio will be broadcasting a set of Buster Poindexter’s classic songs in anticipation of his exciting performance.

The 25th annual Harlem Meer Performance Festival brings the best local talent to Central Park! Enjoy a variety of performances featuring multi-cultural music and dance, family-friendly entertainment, and more while admiring the lakeside views.

Entre Amigos (Among Friends) are a two trombone-led salsa group based in Brooklyn and presided over by the formidable figure of Willie Villegas. In addition to co-leading Entre Amigos, playing timbales with the group, and producing their albums, Willie hosts the cable TV show Salsa En La Calle. No newcomer to the U.S. salsa scene, Willie has played with such luminaries as Joe Quijano, Joe Cuba, Eddie Palmieri, Frankie Ruiz, Lalo Rodríguez, Tito Puente, José Fajardo, and Paquito Guzmán.

Entre Amigos is an appropriate name for a group of talented Brooklyn-born musicians who complement each other with their versatile playing and energetic solos.

  • Johnson Morales: Pianist and co-leader who gives you an explosive style and originality beyond the normal realm.
  • Carlos Velasquez: Bassist who sets the foundation and anchors the groove.
  • Edwin Vega: Congas enhances the rhythm along with Pablito Bilbraut on bongos giving Entre Amigos that special nostalgic New York style.
  • Gamaliel Bonilla: Lead trombonist with a strong sound and bold solos, and also sings background vocals.
  • Jose Rivera: second trombonist and minor percussion adds flavor to a tee.
  • Frankie Otero: Lead vocals takes the challenge of singing with Entre Amigos knowing that at live performances he has to invent new lyrics on the spot.

All ages are welcome.

An accomplished Americana instrumentalist with foundations in jazz and swing music, Phoebe Hunt has a skill for taking seemingly disparate elements and pulling them together into a dazzling kaleidoscope of lush, coherent sound and rhythm patterns. The result is music that swells, crashes and breathes organically under her soulful, plaintive voice. The music seemingly transcends traditional genre, by weaving exotic rhythmic concepts within her roots of Americana, Country and Texas Tinged Swing. Her latest release is the culmination of a five-year journey that has taken her from her Austin roots through Music Row, Brooklyn, and even to India to study with seventh-generation master violinist Kala Ramnath.

Sunset Wednesdays take place rain or shine! All Sunset Wednesday Concerts are held on the Great Lawn. In case of inclement weather, concerts will be moved indoors to Armor Hall with overflow space in the Mark Twain Room and the covered terrace behind Wave Hill House.

Carnegie Hall Citywide Night is a sensational celebration of music from around the globe and across the country. From foot-stomping sounds of Quebec to the effervescent song and dance of Guinea, the music is free and fun all night.

  • Les Grands Hurleurs present the traditional music of their Québécois homeland, with traces of classical, gypsy music, and electronica. Their newest album, 3/4 Fort, showcases spectacular vocals and virtuoso fiddle, guitar, and mandolin playing.
  • Jordan Officer, a virtuoso jazz guitarist, composer, and singer who has wowed audiences in his native Montreal and throughout Canada, brings his unique jazz, blues, rock, and country music to the United States. Three Rivers, his recent album inspired by a road trip to the American South, is an irresistible blend of warm and witty songwriting and crisp guitar playing.
  • Born to a family of griots (West African poet-musicians), Ismael Kouyaté‘s high-flying vocals and dancing catapulted an international career that led to a stirring appearance in the Broadway musical Fela!, a performance that caught the attention of Beyoncé who enlisted him as a featured vocalist on her hit song “Grown Woman.” Kouyaté now fronts his own band, which blends the effervescent West African sound with the gritty funk of New York.
  • Tribu Baharú‘s exuberant performances of champeta music—a fusion of Colombian, African, and Afro-Caribbean styles—are driven by lively vocals, sparkling Congolese guitar, and high-energy bass, and drums. A Tribu Baharú performance recreates the joyous, impromptu spirit of the verbena dances that are popular in Colombian neighborhoods during holidays.
  • The Campbell Brothers’ brand of electrified, ecstatic music sets pulses racing and hands clapping. Led by the “sacred steel” guitar riffs of brothers Chuck (pedal steel) and Darick (lap steel), buoyed by a rhythm section that pumps out irresistible beats, and featuring the soaring vocals of Denise Brown, it’s gospel music with a rock and blues heart.

This event is part of the Bryant Park Picnics series. Each Picnics evening is free to the public with no dress code, no tickets, and no lines. Over 200 blankets are free to borrow so audience members can spread out and relax while enjoying the performance. Beer and wine are available for purchase, along with food from Hester Street Fair.

Join the Fort Tryon Park Trust, NYC Parks, and the Michels family in honoring the late Council Member Stan Michels at the tenth annual Memorial Jazz Concert. Enjoy live jazz by local impresario Marjorie Eliot and her ensemble underneath the majestic elms on the promenade, alongside the beautiful Heather Garden and overlooking the Hudson River.

Stan Michels represented Northern Manhattan in the City Council for 24 years from 1978 through 2001. He was chair of the Committee on Environmental Protection, and his legislative record was notable for his work fighting on behalf of tenants for the expansion of the city’s recycling program, for the protection of our water supply and cleaner air, and against childhood lead poisoning, smoking in public places, and unreasonable noise. He was also a steadfast advocate for parks, allocating over $50 million for park improvements in Washington Heights, Inwood, and Harlem, including virtually every playground in his district.

The promenade where this concert is being held was named in his honor shortly before he passed away on August 1, 2008.

We hope you can be with us to remember Stan on the tenth anniversary of his passing.

This program will be accessible to people with disabilities.

Join artists-in-residence Art Parley for a performance and conversation on immigrants, music and cultural hybridity. The violinist and composer, Sita Chay, and her all immigrant band will take audiences on a musical and visual journey, depicting the convergence of different cultures united in solidarity. Their performance and conversation will examine how string and percussion instruments influence the music of various musical traditions and how new sounds are created as people travel from one country to another, while trying to escape oppression.

This program is part of Round Robin, which started as a free trilingual newspaper in Chinese, English, and Spanish for the communities in Chinatown, LES and Two Bridges. This summer, the Round Robin newspaper has come to life in the form of a collaborative forum for self-empowered leadership, cross cultural solidarity, and language access.

Art Parly invites all immigrants and local residents to participate in this forum through in-person summer workshops to create a network of communication channels and platform involving creative forms of expression in Chinatown, LES and Two Bridges neighborhoods.
