“Musicians don’t retire; they stop when there’s no more music in them” . . . Louis Armstrong

It’s all about the music, where would we be without it? The dancers would still dance, would the singers still sing? Music is the culmination and the essential component that conveys the natural rhythm of the soul. It’s the emotional wave generated from deep within that life rides on. Music can be enjoyed anywhere any time, on the job site my cousin loves to listen to his music while operating his Toledo towing company. At work my aunt listens to her music while she’s cooking. There is no end to the possibilities when it comes to music.

Think about the music in your head that drives the urge to vocalize or make a little harmony. Where does that come from, and where would we be without it? Unimaginable, completely unimaginable – the world without music. A stretch of the mind beyond the comprehension of any human being.

Even in a remote jungle of the Amazon, the birds’ song is celebrated and translated into ceremony and ritual. In Africa, the cradle of civilization, in remote villages where they don’t even have the basics of clean drinking water, they make music. Just as water filtration is important for a healthy life, music is important for a healthy spirit.

Summer Concerts In The City


Summertime means a lot of different things for people. Here in the City, it means more outdoor concerts in Central Park. People from several different neighborhoods and boroughs are drawn out for the evening and it feels very community. Then of course, with over 500 thousand visitors a day to New York, the concerts get their piece of the world community as well. The parks department works along side arborists and environmentalists to maintain the parks. This is an expensive operation however compared to a tree removal cost Fayetteville NC or something like that, it is competitively priced locally.

New York City offers something for everyone and the concerts in the park fill the bill to a tee. Named artists from all over the world covet the opportunity to play in the Park. The atmosphere is fun, free and encapsulates the very Nature of New York. Every genre of music is represented. Dance, song and sounds, riffs, pops from folk to rap, to rock to classical this is where the Music industry feels at home.

The canopy is the soft surrounding glow of the New York City lights. The open roofing makes for magical evenings. The City’s energy is all over the place, but cushioned in music and the natural green, stress-free setting.
