SummerStage provided many free shows throughout New York City’s parks in 2013. There summer line-ups are always filled with talented artists.  There were shows in Central Park like Joshua Nelson,The Prince of Kosher Gospel and the 40th Anniversary of Hip-Hop Culture with DJ Kool Herc. In Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park there was a great R&B night with Bilal, Vivian Green and Chrisette Michele. Then there was the Jazz weekend which takes place in Harlem and the Lower East Side of Manhattan.  This is just a sample of what happened in 2013.
