VP RECORDS TAKES OVER SUMMERSTAGE IN CENTRAL PARK 2015
VP Records has teamed up with SummerStage to celebrate the label's 35th year in business. Reggae stars Maxi Priest and Gyptian as well as soca royalty Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons will take the stage in NYC's Central Park for this momentous occasion. DJs Bobby Konders and Jabba of Massive B will also provide sounds throughout the day. The free concert kicks off at 2pm and ends at 7pm on June 27, 2015.
"VP Records is proud to bring this all-star lineup into the heart of Manhattan. We're all looking forward to celebrating the 35th anniversary with an historic day of reggae and soca music in the park," states VP Records Senior Director of Marketing Brian Greenspoon.
SummerStage is also celebrating their 30th anniversary this year. SummerStage is a program of City Parks Foundation that presents performances of outstanding artistic quality, free of charge, to serve the diverse communities of New York City. To celebrate their 30th anniversary, they have extended the season from May to October, and added more than 20 free shows in Central Park and 15 neighborhood parks across the city.
VP Records co-founder Patricia Chin adds "SummerStage's 30th Anniversary and VP Records' 35th Anniversary are significant milestones that we are honored to acknowledge together at the prestigious Central Park venue." After 35 years, Miss Pat (as her staff affectionately refers to her) is still very much involved with the day-to-day operations of VP Records.
