In a first time ever annual benefit concert, the South Street Seaport Museum introduces Dock Rocks — Party on the Pier on Tuesday, August 4 at 5pm.
In efforts to revive the Seaport Museum after Hurricane Sandy, the five-hour boat party will showcase British pop/rock band, Duran Duran, and special guest, Wyclef Jean. Executive Director, Captain Jonathan Boulware, hopes these initiatives will help the rebirth of the Seaport Museu’s on-water educational programs, as well as their collections, historic buildings and ships.
The non-profit cultural museum hopes to continue to work on the future of Seaport Museum over the next year with events like Dock Rocks. General admission tickets are available, and the museum offers VIP tickets for attendees to enjoy elevated stage views, open bars, food, A/C and exclusive floating nightclub experiences from one of nine historic ships and party boats positioned around the stage and at Pier 15. They also offer access to the concert pier along with a range of celebrity-hosted experiences, and after-parties. Ships included in the VIP package is the Museum’s historic Peking, Ambrose and Pioneer, along with NY Water Taxi and Zephyr luxury yacht and Hornblower Cruises’ Infinity, their largest luxury vessel, the Hybrid and Sensation, and the Esprit.
Partners and 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.
You can purchase your tickets for the event here.
The South Street Seaport Museum announced the cancellation of DOCK ROCKS – Party on the Piers. Due to unforeseen location issues at the site, today’s event has been cancelled. As an Alternative, the South Street Seaport Museum plans to host an alternative fundraiser in the fall, that will include many of the same performances and the opportunity to enjoy everything that the Seaport has to offer.
