Sundae Service brings hundreds to hear live music in Little Haiti

Fridays and Saturdays aren’t only for going out. Sundae Service is a monthly event that gives local musicians the opportunity to showcase their talents. 

Marvens Jean-Baptiste who goes by “Shank Larsen” created these concerts last November. Starting in his backyard with a hundred people, they have now moved to a larger venue on southern edge of Little Haiti, where last month they amassed almost 300 audience members. 

Artists and fans alike are delighted that COVID-19 restrictions are easing up, at least a little. 

“It means a lot because it allows us to get back into our essence,” said 24-year old musician Dyna Edyne. “And do what we do full-time already, which is perform and showcase our art.”

The next show will be August 29 at 246 NW 54th St. Admission is free. For more information visit Sundae Service on Instagram.
