Dock Rocks—Concert to Benefit South Street Seaport Museum
Citing “unforeseen logistical problems at the site,” South Street Seaport Museum has cancelled this event. According to Museum Executive Director Jonathan Boulware, organizers are now planning an alternative fundraiser for the museum in October that will include many of the same performers.
DOCK ROCKS – Party on the Piers
with Duran Duran, Wyclef Jean, & Special Guests
A Concert to Benefit South Street Seaport Museum
Tuesday, August 4, 2015 from 4:30 PM to 10:30 PM (EDT)
Support the South Street Seaport Museum and experience an unforgettable night of music, drink, and food on the East River’s Pier 15 & 16 set in front of a beautiful Brooklyn backdrop. Duran Duran will headline a lineup of surprise artists which DOCK ROCKS will unveil in the weeks leading up to the show. A range of options is available, from general-admission tickets to the concert pier to VIP viewing from a number of unique historic ships and yachts surrounding the Concert Pier 16 and Viewing Pier 15, and a fabulous after-party.
“Dock Rocks will be instrumental in our efforts to revitalize the Seaport Museum post-Sandy. The concert will showcase the Seaport Museum’s historic ships to nearly 6,000 visitors in a completely unique way,” said Captain Jonathan Boulware, Executive Director of the South Street Seaport Museum. “This inaugural celebratory fundraiser for the Museum will support the reinvigoration of the programming that only the Seaport Museum can offer: on-water education programs, interpretation of the original port of New York, our collections, historic buildings, and fleet of ships. Whether attending a concert on the pier, out on the harbor on a floating classroom program, or touring the historic district, visitors touch, see, and interact with historic New York in ways they can only do here in the Seaport. We have been working hard to rebuild and expand this core programming and will continue this development over the next year. We’re thrilled about Dock Rocks and what it means for the future of the Seaport Museum.”
VIP attendees will have the option of enjoying the concert from one of nine historic ships and party boats positioned around the stage and at Pier 15. This luxury option offers all ticketholders access to the concert pier along with a range of celebrity hosted experiences and after-parties featuring world-class DJs. Participating ships include the museum’s historic Peking, Ambrose, and Pioneer, along with NY Water Taxi and Zephyr luxury yacht and Hornblower Cruises’ Infinity, Hybrid, Sensation, and the Esprit—all of which provide elevated stage views, open bars, food, A/C and exclusive floating nightclub experiences.
Partners & Sponsors include: The South Street Seaport Museum, The Swatch Group, Crystal Head Vodka, Modern Luxury, NY Water Taxi, Goslings Rum, Hornblower Cruises, Pledge Music, Fieldhouse Music and City Hall Restaurant.
