Need something to do this summer in New York City, NY that won’t put a dent your wallet? Welcome to the free NYC park series for the summer of 2018.

It’s all about the DJs at NYC Summer Park Jams with Tools of War! Grassroots Hip Hop can’t wait to bring your favorite DJ friends to rock the Bronx and Harlem parks with Funk, Rare Groove, Soul, Go-Go, Salsa, Boogaloo, Classic Rock, Electro, Soul, Disco, early Hip Hop, Classic Soul and more!

The park jams have become the most significant ongoing series where Hip Hop legends, pioneers, battle champions and highly respected DJs play quality music for a family friendly environment. Events are frequented by local communities as well as extensive global guests and practitioners of the culture. Our jams are the closest you will get to experiencing 1970s & 80s Hip Hop outdoor parties where the vibe was inclusive to all the elements of the culture. 

Jams are free for the people but still cost money to produce! Support is greatly appreciated to cover sound, security, event insurance, flyers, etc. All donations are greatly appreciated, please go here to help
