Zune’s “Live at the BBQ” New York City: Saturday, August 4
3pm – 10pm
On Saturday, August 4, Zune will be executing their third show in its “Live at the BBQ” series in New York City, presenting a day of food, drinks and hip hip music to the community. The event is open to the public, and RSVP is required through the “Live at the BBQ” site www.zuneliveattheBBQ.com . Confirmed artists for the New York Zune BBQ include Brand Nubian, Cham, MIMS, Joell Ortiz, Clipse, and Large Professor.
Rather than sponsoring an existing concert series, the Zune team created the “Zune-Live at the BBQ” series from the ground up. Zune worked with artists directly, to give back to the cultural core consumer and connecting Zune with that core by giving them the opportunity to participate in the Zune mantra, which is to support Art, Music and Film in the digital space with technology and innovation. Consider these shows as rewards to those who have come to support the digital platform. By bringing music back to the community parks, they’re also a thank you to those individuals in the cities who have come to support the local and national Art, Music and Film community. It’s a nod to a time when this music was about community; community support and community interaction. The idea is to re-create that energy with the ultimate park jam experience. Zune launched the first BBQ experience in Los Angeles with performances by Common, UGK, E-40 and Collie Budz. Last weekend, the event series hit Chicago with performances by Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Bilal, Little Brother, Qualo, and a special set from Black Star.
