Reggae and Soca lovers got to enjoy their favorite Dancehall and Caribbean artists on Tuesday, June 28th at Wingate Park, located on Winthrop Street and Brooklyn Avenue in East Flatbush, the home of the popular Wingate Concert Series, which was put on pause during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Finally, after years without a concert and music, the summer concerts, which are free of charge, have made a welcome return to Wingate Park thanks to the efforts of Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso.
There were performances by Soca singer Patrice Roberts, Reggae singer Gyptian and Capella Grey who made top hits last year with his song “Gyalis.”
BP Reynoso told the Canarsie Courier that it was a positive turnout at Wingate Park and he will continue to host more events, as his desire is to spread good vibes and love throughout Brooklyn with concerts. “I was able to bring Wingate Concert Series back home. It’s always a pleasure investing in the community…best of all, there was safety, there was peace and most of all there was love and appreciation,” he said. “Spread love!”
The crowd was thrilled to be out again at Wingate Park after 2019, enjoying live music, dancing to Soca and vibin’ with their family and friends on a beautiful summer night!
