SummerStage 2012 Schedule

READ IN JAPANESE

SummerStage brings over 100 free performances to eighteen parks throughout the five boroughs.

 R&B duo Groove Theory has released only one album, 1995’s silky, self-titled chart topper. Both members, Amel Larrieux and Bryce Wilson, went on to solo careers, each notable in its own right, but never matching the power of hits like “Tell Me” and “Baby Luv.” Groove Theory, Soulive, Rioq & Raz with Strings (Black Thought & Rahzel with Strings) performed at Central park SummerStage on Father’s Day. The Roots drum whiz Questlove deejayed between sets.
