For more than two decades, Tampa Bay has been a stronghold in Southern Hip-Hop culture. To commemorate the city’s rich music history and to work towards building a brighter future, Park Jam Series Florida will launch an outdoor event series this fall that focuses on family, education, music and community enrichment.
Peavey Electronics announces corporate sponsorship of this series, celebrating Hip Hop’s positive influence on urban youth.
Park Jam Series Florida will run for four Saturdays over four months—Sept. 17, Oct. 8, Nov. 12, and Dec. 17, 2016—with times and locations listed on their website. The family-oriented series will embrace the true essence of Hip Hop by bringing together a national and international representation of DJs, graffiti artists, dancers and emcees.
These artists will touch on positive messages and values that have enabled disenfranchised neighborhoods and youth to overcome their struggles. Event organizers will be working in conjunction with local non-profit organizations committed to improving quality of life in inner cities.
Inspired by a long-running event in New York City, Park Jams Series Florida believes that the power of music will bridge gaps between generations, language and other stereotypes that divide communities. This message of peace, unity, love and having fun will combine over a soundtrack of grooves from Hip Hop’s old/new school, supported by Peavey’s professional sound equipment.
More information about the event, including Park Jam DJs, is available at the link below. Organizers are still looking for party rockers, additional sponsors, vendors and volunteers, and encourage participants to sign up through the website.
