In partnership with the Jazz Foundation of America, we are proud to bring these fantastic performers to your west side backyard. Make sure you mark the dates now, and don’t miss a special performance by Robin Barnes - from New Orleans!

Presented in partnership with the Jazz Foundation of America.

The Jazz Foundation of America is a national non-profit committed to providing financial, legal, medical and housing assistance, as well as work opportunities, to jazz, blues and roots musicians in need, with a special focus on the elderly--those greats who have "paid their dues" but can't pay their bills due to age, illness or circumstance. Each year JFA assists in 3000 cases through its social work department, and presents nearly 1000 concerts in its performance programs. This is the organization's 30th year.

Jazz at Pier 84 is presented by JFA's Gig Fund program, which is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

The NYC Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment and NYC Parks present New York Music Month Concert Series!

Join us for a Hip Hop Family Day celebration featuring Uptown Vinyl Supreme, Ana Garcia, DJ Perly, and Grandmaster Caz.

Uptown Vinyl Supreme is a Bronx-based DJ collective and community organization paying homage to the analog roots of music, party, and dance culture. Records have the power to uplift, inspire, and heal the people. Friends and lovers of vinyl, Sunny Cheeba, Buddy, Silver Disco, and Brujo Boogie take this responsibility seriously and continue to explore progressive ways in which this power can reach audiences all over the world, be it through dance gatherings, individual sessions, workshops, private functions, or cultural institutions.

Ana Garcia, better known by her stage name Rokafella, is a breakdancer and dance teacher. At the age of 11, Rokafella had thus far found her step and was on the path of becoming a B-Girl. Garcia is not only a renowned dancer but also a poet, musician, filmmaker, and entrepreneur. Rokafella is also regarded as the pioneer for the new generation of B-Girls and B-Boys. Raised in Spanish Harlem by Puerto Rican immigrants, Garcia grew up seeing hip hop performed in her own neighborhood during the late 1970s and '80s. In 1991, veteran breakdancer Kwikstep took Garcia on as a mentee. She would go on to dance with many crews in New York City including The Transformers, The Breeze Team, and the New York City Float Committee. With her now-husband, Kwikstep, Rokafella co-founded and performs with the non-profit hip-hop dance company Full Circle Productions to empower young dancers through the positive power of hip-hop.

DJ Perly is a female Puerto Rican Russian American DK who plays hip hop, breaks, and house music, and practices the art of turntablism with a passion. She is the first female to win the DMC Championship!

Grandmaster Caz is a Hall of Fame DJ, world-renowned MC, lecturer, author, historian, host, promoter, and speaker.

The performance will mark the company's first time gracing SummerStage, as well as the 45th anniversary of its formation in 1974. It follows two free screenings of a documentary in which they're featured, Rebels on Pointe— Washington Square Park on June 13th, followed by another at the Greenwich House Music School on June 18th.

Ana Tijoux is a French-Chilean pop singer and rapper with a long history of championing social justice and nonviolence. She first started rapping and dancing at 11 years old, and did stints in the groups Los Tetas and Makiza before setting off on her own in 2006 with the single "Ya No Fue." In 2009 she embraced hip-hop with her Grammy-nominated breakout LP 1977, which drew comparisons to DJ Premier's work with Jeru the Damaja. She's joined by Combo Chimbita, a New York-based group of Colombianos formed at world music incubator Barbes in Brooklyn. Self-proclaimed “Tropical Futurists,” they reach into the past to find the sounds of the future, with rhythms rooted in cumbia yet incorporating champeta, Afropop, calypso, dub, Haitian kompa, and even a little bit of Cape Verde’s space echo vibes.

The Summer Solstice is the longest and most light-filled day of the year, and one of our favorite occasions to celebrate at Socrates!

In honor of the current exhibition, Chronos Cosmos: Deep Time, Open Space, we’ll be taking our festivities from high-energy daylight to reflective starlit nighttime, exploring the celestial-terrestrial connection and otherworldly origins of expression and art.

The festival features activities for everyone: Agostino Arts face-painting, tarot readings by Liz Nieves, lantern-making with Noguchi Museum, spaceship sculpture building with Free Style Arts Association, light-up inflatables with artist Tamar Ettun, solar observing, and telescope tours of the sky with LaGuardia Community College’s Natural Sciences Department.

And as always, get ready to dance! Performance and percussion rock our stage with Secret Society Dance Company, Imamou, and powerhouse ensemble, Heritage OP, offering musical textures of Africa and the Caribbean.

Once night begins to fall, we begin a very special version of our annual sunset Solstice ritual featuring ceremony, circle singing, and story sharing with Cetiliztli Nauhcampa Quetzalcoatl in Ixachitlan, Urban Shaman Mama Donna, and Kevin Nathaniel with Harmony Mbira.

Kosovo born Albanian guitarist Taulant Mehmeti is a natural improviser, drawing upon the rich Balkan rhythms and gypsy music he grew up hearing and playing. Along with his deep interest in jazz and Django Reinhardt, Charlie Parker and Wes Montgomery as major influences, his musical sensibility is equally informed by funk, rock, and world music genres. Taulant's music weaves these bright strands into a shimmering tapestry of his own creation.

As a youngster in war-torn Kosovo, Taulant Mehmeti amazed local audiences with his songwriting talent and musicianship. Under the mentorship of renowned local jazz guitaristArmend Xhaferi, he developed into a leading jazz player in Kosovo and Albania.

Now an active performer on the New York scene, Mehmeti has played, as a leader and a sideman, in venues including Blue Note, B.B.Kings and Iridium just to name a few.

Taulant's performances have taken him to over 20 countries and varied settings, among them: TED Talks and Prishtina Jazz Festival in Kosovo; Bern Jazz Festival in Switzerland, International Gypsy Romanian Festival Bucharest; Tirana Jazz Festival and Shkodra Summer Jazz, Albania; Castellon Jazz Festival in Spain, Reykjavik Jazz Festival in Iceland, Jazz a Carthage in Tunisia, Contours of Contemporary Kosovo Istanbul, Turkey, Jazz Appreciation Month at WBGO in New Jersey; and in New York: Stars of Tomorrow- Hudson River Park, Jazz in the Square and Ideas City Festival - New Museum.

He has performed with artists such as Vic Juris, Armend Xhaferi, Ilir Bajri, Linda Briceño, Baden Goyo, Nesim Maxhuni, and Gabriel Chakarji.

His debut jazz album Pinxhur'n'Pestil with his band Trio of Love, received positive press and garnered airplay, including a New Year's Eve live TV performance on KlanKosova network in Kosovo. Other notable recordings include his performance with Kosovo jazz drummer Nesim Maxhuni’s Hip-Bop Quintet release Syndrome; as well as his appearance on ErnestoLlorens' new album "On My Gypsy Way" featuring legendary gypsy guitarists Bireli Lagrene, Stochelo Rosenberg and Adrien Moingnard with whom he shared tracks.

Dubbed “The World’s Coolest Day Party” by Vice, Everyday People is a monthly day party with a 90s R&B soundtrack that celebrates the black diaspora. Founded in 2012 by Saada Ahmed, Chef Roblé Ali & DJ Moma, the intersectional safe space takes its name from Arrested Development’s song "People Everyday," and is both a party and a platform, with multiple residencies in NY & LA, even transporting their vibes across the Atlantic to Nairobi, Johannesburg and Cape Town. This summer they bring the party to Brooklyn's Herbert Von King park.

In Association with Francerocks Inc, Sacem and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy

In celebration of Fete de la Musique (“Music Day”), a celebration of music on the summer solstice first celebrated in Paris in 1982, two pioneering French groups grace SummerStage, in association with Francerocks Festival. Zdar will represent the electronic duo Cassius, who first started working together in 1988, producing albums for the iconic French rapper MC Solaar and doing remixes for the likes of Neneh Cherry, Björk, Daft Punk, Air and Depeche Mode. Producers Philippe Cerboneschi and Hubert Blanc-Francard—better known as Philippe Zdar and Boom Bass—have since harnessed the pop appeal with an underground heart that defined the French house wave they contributed to in the late 90s. They’re joined by Les Negresses Vertes—a group so named for the verbal abuse directed at its members at an early concert—who mix Latin, rai, and folk with a punk sensibility to make unique dance music.

Often called "The Queen of Percussion," the legendary percussionist featured on Purple Rain opener "Let's Go Crazy" before breaking out with her 1984 LP "Glamorous Life"; She's since collaborated with the likes of Phil Collins, Cyndi Lauper, Beyoncé, Ringo Starr and George Clinton.

While dancehall has risen to become the most popular lane in Jamaican music, infiltrating clubs and parties around the world, a new generation of roots reggae artists carries the torch for the likes of Bob Marley and the Wailers, making music promoting socially conscious messages and the Rastafari faith. Jesse Royal, mentored by the late Fatis Burrell, took his singing talents from church to the recording studio after befriending Ziggy Marley's son Daniel; his hit "Always Be Around" anointed him as one of Jamaica's rising stars, and his latest LP, Lily of Da Valley, hit #1 on US Reggae charts. Rapper/singer/producer Kabaka Pyramid returns to SummerStage after a sold out 5-week European tour. Kabaka Pyramid is seen as a leader in reggae revival, whose debut album Kontraband, executively produced by Damian Marley, blends hip-hop's lyricism with dancehall's energy and reggae's soul. The Federation Sound's Max Glazer, a Brooklyn dancehall mainstay who once served as Rihanna's touring DJ, will man the turntables.

One of indie rock's strongest new voices, Michelle Zauner showcases a diverse pop palette as Japanese Breakfast. Writing pretty pop songs about death and grief while wielding strings and AutoTune with equal aplomb, she brings a production both nuanced and cinematic in scope. With support from Australia's Hatchie, a Pitchfork "Rising" artist with a spaced-out dream pop wall of sound whose debut LP, Keepsake (out June 21), floats as if carried by a cloud.

"The quintessential New York MC" (The FADER) first turned heads rocking Bobby Shmurda's flow harder than he could on M.A The Mixtape, but by 2016 Young M.A had cracked both the Billboard charts and Forbes' 30-under-30 list on the strength of the triple-platinum mega-hit, "OOOUUU." Her latest hit—a remix of Blueface's "Thotiana"—proves she's "one of the boys" but still does their schtick better than they do. She is joined by NYC hip-hop figurehead and radio DJ Funk Flex
