ZUMIX Launches Youth Radio Station on 94.9FM, Celebrates with Block Party in East Boston on September 17

EAST BOSTON, Mass.— ZUMIX, the East Boston non-profit organization dedicated to empowering youth through music and the arts, will present its inaugural ZUMIX Radio Block Party – a free, outdoor, family-friendly afternoon of music, art, food, and community on September 17 from 3-6pm. Taking place on Orleans St in Jeffries Point from Sumner St to Everett St in East Boston, the ZUMIX Radio Block Party will officially mark the launch of ZUMIX’s Low-Power FM radio station, 94.9 ZUMIX Radio, a non-commercial station.

The ZUMIX Radio Block Party will feature live music on two stages, multi-media art installations, and small business vendors. Musical performances on alternating stages will span genres, and will feature ZUMIX youth ensembles and local bands including Latin Rock group La Chusma, youth group ICA Slam Poets, and hip hop dance crew the Floorlords. Pupusas and cider will also be for sale. There will be an after party inside the ZUMIX Firehouse at 6:30pm for a $10 cover – details and lineup to be announced soon.

“This is a great moment in a long, important relationship between the station and our neighborhood. Youth producers will be given space to create the type of media that represents and sustains them. I'm so excited that the community is embracing this project,” says ZUMIX Radio Coordinator Brittany Thomas. “I hope that the Block Party will be everything that is a part of our station’s long-term vision – a place to connect with neighbors, share music, hear a different perspective, and recharge through the power of youth art.”

The ZUMIX Radio Block Party will be a continuation of celebrations in honor of ZUMIX’s 25th year supporting youth arts and empowerment in East Boston. “We’re excited to kick off what we hope will become a staple of the East Boston annual calendar,‘ said ZUMIX Community Arts and Events Coordinator Jeeyoon Kim. ‘In a neighborhood that’s rapidly changing, a block party is a new way to continue the work that ZUMIX has done in this community for the past 25 years. ZUMIX continues to provide East Boston with opportunities to come together through art and find connection among neighbors.”

The event is underwritten with the support of East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, RDK Engineers, Ryan Persac & Andrew Pike East Boston Realtors, Downeast Cider, and Lee Guertin.
