Sundae Sermon – Good Music For Good People

By Mico | HarlemTrends

If you want to experience the glory of Harlem you need to attend Sundae Sermon.Sundae Sermon is a free family-friendly afternoon of soulful house, afro beats and classic music and dancing on selected Sunday’s in Morningside Park.

Harlem enjoys a rich history of church, music, culture, community and love that connects all people from all corners of the globe. Sundae Sermon continues this tradition with a simple and soulful day of dancing under the sun.

Sundae Sermon is about positive church-inspired house music and peaceful tribal vibes enjoyed by a culturally eclectic audience.  A variety spanning genres and generaions:  new and old house, classic R&B (Barry White, Stevie Wonder), Disco (Thelma Houston), Funk (Parliament), Soul (James Brown, TSOP), Afro-Beat (Fela) and Latin (Oscar D’leon).  Simply stated, music that makes people feel good.  DJ Stormin’ Norman is the host.  Not only does he spin the beats, but makes sure to share the fun with a hand picked selection of world renowned guest DJs, including Louie Vega (Roots/Vega Records) and Kevin Hedge (Roots/blaze).

DJ Stormin’ Norman is also known as “minister of music” originally hails from East London, UK and is now a resident of Harlem for over 15 years.  In the 90’s, he was part of a groundbreaking DJ collective who brought the Thunderstorm Mix on WBLS 107.5FM NYC, introducing live mixing to daytime radio previously reserved for weekend nights broadcasted from night-clubs, setting a new precedent in national radio. For over 20 years, he’s played major New York clubs, exclusive downtown spots, elite private events and world touring. Most importantly, he’s committed to his community.

Says Norman, “There are a lot of Harlemites who have to venture downtown or to other boroughs for this kind of experience, but would much rather support and celebrate our own neighborhood and network.”
