New York, NY – Fresh off a highly successful and memorable 2014 Trinidad and Tobago Carnival season, Soca megastar Machel Montano will ignite the ‘Big Apple’ on Memorial Weekend with his dynamic presence for the 2nd installment of the aptly titled “Float”.
The concert event touted as the ‘Ultimate Yacht Experience’ will take place on NYC’s Memorial Weekend, May 23rd, 24th and 25th onboard the luxurious, multi-level, Infinity Yacht (The Largest Luxury boat on the US east coast) and will feature 3 separate nights of rare, on the seas, full band performances by the 2014 International Soca Monarch and his HD band.
Presented by promoters Jay Upscale Marketing and SOB’s Concert Cruises, the 2014 edition of Float is already causing high anticipation in the 5 boroughs of New York and much like 2013, is expected to attract audiences (Caribbean and Non-Caribbean alike) from various parts of the North-American Diaspora. According to the organizers, the goal is to again present Caribbean entertainment at its highest quality in a classy atmosphere with a picturesque ocean backdrop.
Montano, who is also T&T’s 2014 Road March Champion, has previously performed in such high profile NYC establishments as Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall and will bring to Float his unique, vibrant performance style and his extensive catalogue of Soca classics and current hits. These include ‘Ministry of Road’, ‘Happiest Man Alive’, ‘One More Time’, ‘The Fog’, ‘Bottle of Rum’ and the event’s title track ‘Float’.
Joining Machel for these massive Memorial Weekend shows are his longtime HD band mates Patrice Roberts and Farmer Nappy as well as Walshy Fire from the internationally renowned DJ Collective, Major Lazer.
Much like Machel, Jay Upscale Marketing continues to place all efforts into bringing Caribbean entertainment to its rightful place in the global mainstream market. The entity is renowned for producing previous creative Caribbean events in North-America such as: Machel Montano Live at Roseland Ballroom, Manhattan, the ‘Run Away’ Miami Carnival cool down Miami to Bahamas cruise, The ‘Timeless Concert’ at Stage 48, Manhattan featuring Kes and Maxi Priest and the popular weekly ‘Caribbean Fridays’ at Club Element, Manhattan.
