GROOVIN’ IN THE PARK

From The Daily News:

CARIBBEAT: ‘Groovin in the Park’ means the best reggae and R&B — from R. Kelly to Freddie McGregor

Famed Jamaican vocalist Ken Boothe, former Heptones lead singer Leroy Sibbles and veteran singer-producer Freddie McGregor are some of 2017 Groovin In The Park performers who attended a launch event earlier this year at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Queens.

Boasting a host of performers, such as American R&B singer-songwriter R. Kelly and soulful reggae singer Freddie McGregor, the “Groovin in the Park” event easily lives up to its claim of being North America’s largest annual reggae and R&B concert.

Patrons are eagerly awaiting the June 25 concert at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, which also stars singer Leroy Sibbles of Heptones fame; veteran U-Roy, known as the “Originator;” dancehall’s Busy Signal; smooth singer Ken Boothe, aka “Mr. Rock Steady;” roots reggae singer Tarrus Riley; and Lloyd Parks of the We The People band.

And the Groovin’ in the Park experience has gone mobile this year with the introduction of an information-packed app. Available for Apple and android platforms. The app features exclusive content — artist interviews, event news, giveaways and more.
