Make Music NY - Time Out NY - June 21 2009 - Call for Musicians!!

So I spoke with the Director of this program today and they are excited to get the show to the KG/FH area. We need a location which is outside in front of some local business that can provide an extension cord with power to the outside where the music will be played, plus we need the musicians. MMNY only provides permits and promotes the events but the business which sponsors it, just by providing the space outside in front of their business and a power cord, will obviously benefit highly. What if we do it in front of Jade in FH? Big sidewalk space ina central location and I am sure they wouldn't mind the foot traffic. Any one know any great local bands or musicians in general that would like to participate?? We need to get the location and bands set by next week to make it happen! 

Make Music New York, “the largest music event ever to grace Gotham” (Metro New York), is a unique festival of free concerts in public spaces throughout the five boroughs of New York City, all on Sunday, June 21st, the first day of summer. MMNY takes place simultaneously with similar festivities in more than 327 cities around the world — a global celebration of music making.

From 11 in the morning to 10 at night, musicians of all ages, creeds, and musical persuasions — from hip hop to opera, Latin jazz to punk rock — perform on streets, sidewalks, stoops, plazas, cemeteries, parks and gardens. From high school bands to marquee names, MMNY is open to anyone who wants to take part, enjoyed by everyone who wants to attend.


  1. The plaza in front of Darth vader, 80-02 Kew Gardens Road at Union Turnpike/80th Road, might be a better location---murray berger

  2. I have a band..maybe two that could play.

    I like the idea of jade..lot's of space.

    Who can I contact?

    Thanks, Dan
