Concert Blogger Signs Media Partner Agreement With City Parks Foundation



Concert Blogger Music Magazine is proud to announce that it has entered into an agreement with City Parks Foundation to be an official Media Partner of their 2014 SummerStage Concert Series in New York City.

"We have been covering SummerStage concerts on a small scale for the past couple of years," " said Mark Sincavage, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Concert Blogger Music Magazine. "When we were approached by City Parks Foundation with the opportunity to become a media partner, it made sense to take our relationship to that next level. We are honored to be a part of this highly popular and longstanding series. And we are excited about the online and offline promotions we will provide City Parks Foundation through content on our website, viral marketing through social media and interactions with concert-goers in the parks."

Concert Blogger will provide advance coverage of upcoming SummerStage concerts in parks all across the city, as well as share reviews and photographs of events.

Concert Blogger will be on-site at shows in all boroughs of the city, where the magazine will offer concert-goers opportunities to participate in social media activities for the chance at cash or other prizes.

* June 11 - Sisqo - Betsy Head Park (Brooklyn)
