NY POST: Eye-popping disco skating rink boogies into Central Park this summer


A rendering of the DiscOasis rink, set to open in Central Park this summer.

The wheeled variant of boogie fever is still going around.

Yet another roller skating rink is coming to NYC. On the heels of JFK Airport’s TWA Hotel reopening its Roll-A-Rama venue and Rockefeller Center swapping its blades for wheels at the new Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace, sales have launched for Central Park’s new DiscOasis, with general admission tickets ranging from $16 to $65.

The “immersive, musical and theatrical roller disco experience” will open on June 16 at the Park’s Wollman Rink, where it will remain through Oct. 1, according to a press release. Created by “experience-based” production studio Constellation Immersive in partnership with Los Angeles Media Fund and events promoter Live Nation, the boroughs’ newest wheeled dance venue will offer not just a place to skate but also “theatrical performances,” as well as live DJs, artists and special guests.

Nile Rodgers 'HITMAKER' Strat by Fender

Nile Rodgers' Hitmaker Stratocaster is a true vintage rarity. Featuring a 1960 alder body – smaller and more contoured than the average Strat and refinished in Olympic White by Nile himself, a ’59 maple neck and an uncommon hardtail bridge – this unique instrument became an essential ingredient in Nile’s extraordinary rhythm tones. Watch as Nile plays through some of his top hits and dives into the story behind his iconic guitar.

A Message from Nile Rodgers

Black
Lives
Matter.

WE ARE FAMILY FOUNDATION CONDEMNS SYSTEMIC RACISM AND VIOLENCE AND STANDS IN SOLIDARITY WITH ORGANIZERS AND PROTESTERS ALL AROUND THE WORLD IN THE DEMAND FOR JUSTICE.

We Are Family Foundation (WAFF) is committed to fighting systemic racism, inequality, inequity and injustice. Black Lives Matter.

Founded by legendary musician Nile Rodgers and inspired by the power and true meaning of his song, "We Are Family", WAFF’s mission has always focused on bringing people together from different ethnicities, cultures and backgrounds. For more than a decade WAFF has been a leader in amplifying and supporting the actions and voices of diverse youth leaders across the globe who are actively and positively addressing issues surrounding our basic human needs - food, water, shelter, health, safety, education and the environment. However, ALL of those basic human needs are further compromised with systemic racism in our society.

The world is finally acknowledging and demanding that the pandemic of systemic racism that has survived and thrived for hundreds of years needs to be eradicated – and our youth are on the front lines of finding the cure.

WAFF created the Youth to the Front Fund (YTTF Fund) to support and fund under 30-year-old BIPOC youth activists, youth-led organizations, projects, innovations and creative solutions that are at the forefront of fighting systemic racism, inequality, inequity and injustice in the United States and around the world. The growing six-figure fund is not a one-off response to George Floyd’s murder and the subsequent global outrage, but rather an ongoing sustainable commitment.
