It’s BBQ season in New York City, but nobody does it bigger than Jay Upscale.
Every year, Jay - who has organized some of the biggest shows in New York and the Caribbean islands - books some of the biggest names in Caribbean music. And this year’s BBQ was no different. Taking place on 4th of July, Coney Island’s iconic Art Walls was at capacity for the festivities, as we celebrated the culture and music of the islands.
Hood Celebrityy, Nessa Preppy, Davido, Casanova, Busy Signal and headliner, Bunji Garlin, set the stage ablaze with an eclectic mix of Afrobeats, Dancehall, Reggae and Soca. From mid-day to sunset, the crowd danced away the holiday for nearly six hours straight.
Spotted on some of the performers, of course, were some notable pieces of ice. Check out the photos below and recap video.
