June is New York Music Month, the official celebration of New York City’s vibrant and dynamic music ecosystem. The month is an initiative of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment. In 2022, as we reopen and rebuild, join us for in-person and virtual events. Hear music at a concert in the park, sharpen your skills with virtual and in-person resources for musicians, access rehearsal space, and join the conversation at the New York Music Month Annual Conference – all for free. This June, get tuned in with New York Music Month.
Born in Harlem and based in Brooklyn, pianist Danny Mixon has long been one of New York City’s jazz treasures. His expressive technique and mastery of the blues have been on keen display from his early days with Patti Labelle and Betty Carter, through engagements with Charles Mingus, Art Blakey and Yusef Lateef, and at years-long runs as a leader at uptown institutions like Showman’s and the Lenox Lounge. He always delivers, always swingin’.
The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and NYC Parks have teamed up again to present a series of concerts in Bronx and Queens parks to celebrate New York Music Month! Ranging from Caribbean music to Latin to R&B, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Please join us for a free concert in the park with Dr. K’s Motown Review on June 24, 2022 at Baisley Pond Park.
Dr. K’s Motown Revue is an outstanding band of musicians and singers that takes you on a very realistic journey of the Motown sound and makes you want to sing along to every familiar song they play. They have kept the Motown sound true to its roots and each and every performance they do transports you back to another era.

In partnership with Found Sound Nation and HARMAN, the popular Street Studio returns after a two year pandemic hiatus. From 12:00 noon until 4:00 pm, local musicians and producers Ricardo Nigaglioni and Frankie Leroux will set up a mobile recording studio in front of the JBL Store SoHo (19 E Houston Street) to capture the ambient sounds of the neighborhood and invite passersby to contribute improvised music on the spot. By the end of the day, they will mix down a track to share the sounds of NYC and its residents with the world.
