Following a rich tradition of bringing the best concert events to Brooklyn for years, the Brooklyn Music Festival returns with a Labor Day lineup that is sure to please the Caribbean massive. Aptly titled Monday Madness, the biggest show in New York City this Labor Day holiday is set to go down in Brooklyn, NY – a mecca for Caribbean music lovers. Promoter Daddy Grace Entertainment sought out the hottest acts to truly celebrate New York’s West Indian Day/Labor Day Parade with none other than the ‘King of Soca’ himself, Machel Montano, along with dancehall icon Mr. Vegas.
Machel Montano and Mr. Vegas share a similar history of producing quality Caribbean music since the very beginning of their careers, both boasting catalogs that have set the standard in their respective genres. Montano, a soca star from childhood, is known as the ultimate performer for carnival celebrations worldwide and is, in fact, the reigning Soca Monarch and Road March King in his homeland, Trinidad. He’s credited for placing soca music on the worldwide map. Whereas, Mr. Vegas has consistently pushed the boundaries between dancehall and soca, and is hailed as the best Jamaican act to ever do so. His hybrid of dancehall and soca music has become his trademark. Soca fans look forward to his music as much as their own native sounds, during carnival season.
Montano and Vegas will be joined on stage by friends from both the soca and dancehall worlds, such as Farmer Nappy, Lyrical, Gold Duss, Wild Fire and Khristopher, with a few surprises also planned for concert-goers.
“It’s New York City Carnival and everyone celebrates across the city, the entire weekend, but we are the only concert that will bring you the true essence of carnival,” states promoter Vanmyke of Daddy Grace Entertainment. “Plus we are doing it on the actual Labor Day with Monday Madness, so we’re inviting everyone to come out and celebrate carnival with us, and truly enjoy your holiday.” The concert also marks Montano’s very last appearance in New York City for the summer.
The concert takes place at the Sesame Flyer Pan Yard, located at 1020 East 48th Street (corner of Farragut Road & East 48th Street), in Brooklyn, New York. Doors open at 4pm. Advance tickets for $20 and $25 are now sold out; tickets are currently $30 and will be more at the door. It is proudly sponsored by Western Union and food vendors will be on site, making it a fun-filled event for the entire family.
