Chronixx, one of Jamaica’s fastest rising reggae stars, will make his outdoor concert debut at New York City’s flagship reggae, rhythm and blues summer concert Groovin’ In The Park on Sunday, June 29 in Queens.
“Chronixx is the hottest reggae artiste on the circuit right now and we are extremely pleased to present him for the first time to music fans in New York at our outdoor festival this year” Christopher Roberts, founder and CEO of Groovin Inc said.
“He is talented, exciting to watch on stage and lyrically out of this world”, Roberts continued.
Roberts is not the only music executive heaping praises on Chronixx. In a recent Billboard Magazine interview, Island Records’ founder Chris Blackwell said Chronixx’s music, is “completely fresh, uplifting and very pure.” Major Lazer selector Walshy Fire quipped, “the world will recognize him as one of reggae’s greatest artists.”
Chronixx comes to the sizzling one day reggae and R&B festival with superb credentials. He has an impressive catalogue of smash hits including “Behind Curtain,” “Tell Mi Now,” “Here Comes Trouble,” “African Heritage” and his patriotic Jamaican anthem “Smile Jamaica” that has placed him on reggae’s frontline.
On stage, Chronixx is exciting to watch. In the past year he has delivered a number of impressive performances dating back to February 2013 when he enthralled thousands of fans at the Tuka Rada Peace Concert in Nairobi, Kenya. He then left fans in a musical trance at Reggae Sumfest 2013 and had them singing along at the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival in Trelawny.
While this will mark his first appearance on the Groovin In The Park stage, he has performed in New York before as a guest of Jamaican Jazz great Monty Alexander at the cozy Blue Note Jazz Club. At that sold out event in Manhattan, Chronixx stamped his authority with his trademark superlative performance.
“This year we are expecting an even greater interest in the one day festival with Chronixx now on board”, Roberts said.
