The word "legendary" rolls off the tongue easily and often these days, but in the world of music and nightlife that story is usually told in the past tense. Unless the legend happens to be Susan Morabito. Few names have dominated the dance scene over the course of three decades and remain as relevant, current and celebrated as Morabito.
Susan started working at Vinyl Mania in Greenwich Village in the late '80s, and just when she decided to open her own record store called BPM, she landed a multi-year summer residency at the famed Pavilion in Fire Island Pines, where she and her stable mates collectively created and established what would eventually be called "the Fire Island sound". Through "the circuit" of the pioneering AIDS fundraising parties, Susan expanded her fanbase rapidly nationwide, since hundreds and sometimes even thousands of people attended events like the GMHC Morning Party on Fire Island, Dance On Washington for amfAR, Black & Blue in Montreal, Cherry in Washington, Blue Ball in Philadelphia, White Party in Palm Springs, Zoo Party in San Diego, Gay Days in Orlando, Big Guns over Manhattan on the USS Intrepid for the 25th anniversary of Stonewall, and the 20th anniversary of Dance On The Pier at NYC Pride.
Since Susan dropped her first name to signal a change in direction and help publicize her musical evolution towards a more progressive, tech house influenced sound, often infused with elements drawn from her deep well of experience and guided by her rare ability to correctly sense, gauge, guide and if necessary fuel the energy of a room, she has once again taken the country by storm. A new generation of fans that simply know her as Morabito, now rave about her unparalleled skill of creating a cohesive and seamless experience on the dance floor, which has always been the hallmark that set Morabito apart and earned her tremendous respect and lasting acclaim from audiences, promoters and peers alike.
