The genre-bending string duo ARKAI, closed off the 2021 event calendar by performing on a stunning NYC rooftop for a private I Love NYC SMB winner event. It was a truly special day of connection, community, and friendship.

QUEENS

Vintage Gold moved our feet and soul by performing a concert that included broadway vocals, explosive tap dancing, and virtuosic guitar at the Laurelton Farmers Market in collaboration with small business Jars of Delight.

THE BRONX

In collaboration with Silver Bull Management Group Inc., we enjoyed the limitless musical landscapes of Port Mande and guest drummer Jimmy Macbride — it was a joyous fusion of classical, jazz, hip hop, gospel, pop, electronic, and world music. 

 STATEN ISLAND

 Opera Cowgirls & ARKAI joined forces for a side-splitting and glass-shattering blend of opera & country, in collaboration with small business PR Cision that was truly unforgettable!

Amid an intimate outdoor oasis at cityWell Brooklyn, we witness the awesome power of Haitian superstar and international phenomena Emeline Michel and her band.
