Concerts in NYC: Summerstage ’15, June Picks Feat. Rich Medina, Jungle, Gyptian& More!

June crept up on NYC with a blister of wind and drab rain, but not to fret, we are reminded that the summer season is upon us. How you may ask? With the full line-ups of various arts and cultural events that are FREE 99 in the city. Here is where I share with you one of my favorite lineups every summer, Summerstage concerts at the City Parks. Now in its 30th year, the programming for the season is one to be remembered.

Check out my picks for the month of June, which is also Black Music Month, below, and stay tuned for  upcoming months!
