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.
Founded by Jan Kus, a saxophonist and composer hailing from Slovenia and based in New York City, this extraordinary seven-piece band Slavo Rican Assembly combines his expertise in the Latin jazz scene with his South Slavic musical heritage. With jazz as their foundation, Slavo Rican Assembly fearlessly explores the rich sounds of their own cultural roots. From bomba, salsa, and rumba to Slovenian harvest songs, Bosnian lullabies, and Serbian laments, their musical cocktail is a true reflection of the vibrant diversity of New York City.
