CityParks Concerts

CityParks Concerts include Hip-Hop Hall of Fame inductees, Whodini, performing in their hometown of Brooklyn, as well as KRS-1, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Naughty By Nature, Jungle Brothers, Bahamadia and Brand Nubians performing at various locations across the city. For those who enjoy the sounds of smooth soul, CityParks Concerts includes The Chi-Lites and Delfonics performing in Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan parks. The season would not be complete without some tropical sounds to dance to, and we are proud to present salsa icon Willie Colon as well as Michael Stuart in this summer’s line-up
