A Full Day of Reggae and Romantic Music at Groovin’ in the Park Concert this Sunday

Chronixx_n

It’s kind of a Bob Marley reunion. Judy Mowatt and Marcia “Reggae Empress” Griffiths, original members of the I-Threes, will perform at the fourth annual Groovin’ in the Park concert in Jamaica this Sunday. Along with Rita Marley, the I-Threes provided background harmonies for Marley and toured as a group. Plus, each member went on to enjoy a solo career. These Reggae legends will share the stage with Beres Hammond, a soulful and romantic crooner who, like Mowatt and Griffiths (below), hails from West Indian island of Jamaica (not the Queens neighborhood). And to change the pace and accents, the soft rock group Air Supply will also perform. This Australian band had seven Top Five hits in the 1980s, including “Lost in Love,” “Here I Am (Just When I Thought I Was Over You),” and “Sweet Dreams.”  Other scheduled performers are Chronixx (above), John Holt, and Bob Andy.

Details: Groovin’ in the Park, Roy Wilkins Park, 177-01 Baisley Boulevard, Jamaica, June 29th, gates open at 11 am, but concert scheduled for a 2 pm start, $59.99.
