The Sermon! Classic Soul, Funk, Jazz & Beyond

The Sermon! Classic Soul, Funk, Jazz & Beyond

If you’ve ever been to one of The Sermon!’s shows, then you know why we’ve asked them to come back every month… the band’s live energy is electrifying and there’s no denying their infectious grooves.

Starting on September 18th and every 3rd Wednesday of the month thereafter, our favorite funky quartet from West Chester will play in Upstairs Live starting at 8pm – with no cover!

Informed by old school soul, funk, and jazz, West Chester’s The Sermon! takes their name from the classic Jimmy Smith record. The Sermon! is primarily an instrumental, Hammond B-3 organ-driven group influenced by the stylings of Grant Green, Lonnie Smith, James Brown, Soulive, Bill Withers, MMW, and others. Climactic live performances are a staple to the band's high energy stage presence. The Sermon! has been playing together throughout the north east since their debut performance backing the legendary Papa John Defrancesco in 2005, and recently released their third studio album 'Get In' in September 2012.
