Experience the perfect combination of FREE live music and stunning waterfront views this summer at the 12-acre oasis that is Gantry Plaza State Park! Introducing Live at the Gantries, a series of free outdoor performances featuring a diverse range of local talents that celebrate the unique cultures and communities of Queens.

The funk-fusion combo Afro Dominicano infuses their songs with Afro-Caribbean soul: a blend of Dominican folkloric styles and pop influences that includes merengue, bachata, samba, reggae, punk and R&B, all filtered through a uniquely New York sensibility. The group’s mix of sweet vocals, accordion, guitar, traditional percussion and electric bass sparks high-energy riffs and romantic balladry that eludes the pigeonhole of genre in favor of genuine human connection.

Presented in collaboration with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, and with generous support from Plaxall, Inc., the Live at the Gantries kicks off on July 11 and continues every Tuesday through August 15. Starting at 7:00 PM, each concert showcases the very best in local music talent and culminates in a breathtaking sunset over the East River.
