Groovin In the Park is scheduled for Sunday, June 25, 2017 at Roy Wilkins Park, Queens, New York. It features a star-studded lineup of international reggae singers including R&B superstar R KELLY,  Reggae Greats FREDDIE MCGREGOR, KEN BOOTHE,DADDY U-ROY, TARRUS RILEY, LLOYD SPARKS & WE THE PEOPLE BAND LEROY SIBBLES & REGGAE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

It’s going to be some kind of summer in New York City.  Groovin In the Park, the largest international Reggae and R&B festival will be even more exciting this year with  the Lenox Road Baptist Church Mass Choir from Brooklyn, to perform a few songs with the Rocksteady era.
The tasty array of musical influences R. Kelly transforms and reinvents ranges through the history of classic soul. “Love Is,” “Share My Love” and “Lady Sunday” evoke the lush, danceable sound of Philadelphia. “Feeling Single” and “Believe That It’s So” effortlessly mash up echoes of Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder. “All Rounds On Me” has a blues feel that Ray Charles would envy, while “Fool For You” has that classic Motown Sound. “Green Light” will make fans of the Isley Brothers happy, while “Party Jumpin’” captures the seriously fun late night spirit of a live Sam Cooke show. Both “When A Man Lies” and “Believe In Me” are powerhouse songs poised to join the canon of R. Kelly standards.

Recently a press conference was held to launch this year’s festivities.  Some of the  headliners were in attendance:
