Reggae and Soca Fans Turn Out in Droves for the Timeless Concert in NYC
A timeless time was enjoyed by all attending the Timeless concert, starring reggae icon Maxi Priest and soca sensation KES The Band, on Sunday, March 31 in Manhattan, New York.
Presented by New York City’s haute nightlife tastemakers Big & Strong and Tryst Experience, this rare fusion of reggae and soca took centerstage at the ultrachic Stage 48 in midtown Manhattan, which was filled to capacity with reggae aficionados and soca revelers, who braved the elements and packed into the venue hours in advance on a rainy New York wintery-Spring day.
