Free Concert Tix Gone In A Wink
City Councilman James Sanders Jr. has announced that his offices have completely run out of their supply of free tickets for the Mother’s Day rendition of the Garvey-Tubman Concert Series.
The concert, which will take place on Saturday, May 7, “sold out” in less than three days, as eager concert goers flocked to the Councilman’s district offices in Laurelton and Far Rockaway, and the Margert Community Corporation to pick up their tickets. Featured at the afternoon concert will be Russell Thompkins Jr. and The New Stylistics, and The Delfonics featuring William Hart, the original lead singer.
“These are two legendary voices in the history of Soul music, and it’s not surprising that these tickets were in such high demand,” said Sanders. “Sadly, there are no more seated tickets to give out. However, our office is looking for volunteers who would like to help us put on the show, and those volunteers will be treated to a complimentary meal, as well as an opportunity to watch the concert while they work. It’s a great way to serve the community and enjoy the community at the same time.”
Continued the Councilman, “Those who were not able to get tickets to see this show shouldn’t fret. This summer will be one of the busiest ever for the Garvey-Tubman Concert Series, and there will be plenty of other opportunities for music lovers to see a live show in our community. Just remember, when we put on a show, get your tickets as early as possible, because with the names we have lined up, they’re going to go just as quickly.”
