Veteran singer Tony Gregory, who came to prominence with the 1982 international hit single 'Gypsy Girl', has been added to the impressive line-up for the 2014 instalment of Groovin' In The Park on June 29th at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, NY.

Gregory will perform with reggae queen Marcia Griffiths and friends - John Holt, Judy Mowatt & Bob Andy - as part of her upcoming 50th anniversary celebration at Groovin' In The Park.

"We are absolutely thrilled and honoured to have an international superstar like Tony Gregory grace the stage at Groovin In The Park this year," Christopher Roberts, CEO of Groovin Inc, parent company of 'Groovin' In The Park', said.

Gregory's association with Griffiths dates back to 1964, when they recorded the single You're Mine. In 1975, he earned his first million-selling hit titled He, from his second album One More Time.

Other popular hits from his catalogue include It's Alright With Me, For Love Of You, Let's Come Together, and I Need It Now. His success as an artiste has enabled him to tour the world, sharing the stage with luminaries like The Drifters, Chuck Jackson, Dionne Warwick, Ray Charles, Sammy Davis Jr., Sam Cooke, and Ben E King.

After living in North America and Germany for many years, Gregory moved back to Jamaica in the late 90, and has since established a publishing company - Sunland Music - that concentrates on controlling music copyrights for himself and other composers, as well as an entertainment company, Gregory Entertainment Limited.

Other performers at Groovin' In The Park are Air Supply, Chronixx and reggae group LUST.
