Presented by DJ Solkat and Joey Jazz, the Queens of House picnic has become an annual Chicago house tradition featuring an all-female DJ lineup. It’s a tour de force of SHE-Jays who know how to beat a dancefloor and make the dancers sweat! This year’s picnic was no exception! House people came out early with their families and friends and setup for a day full of fun, fellowship and good music! The grills were going, the drinks were flowing and ladies filled the atmosphere of Calumet Park with nothing but banging beats until the sun set.
This year’s lineup featured DJs, Christa Schrupp, Dee Jay Alicia, Lori Branch, First Lady, Dela, DJ Melody, Noshaluv, Foxxxy, and Solkat. Each DJ with their own unique playing style and song selection effortlessly and seamlessly blended through each of their sets like a well-trained relay team. Their individual styles showcased the immense amount of talent each of these phenomenal women offered. Each of these ladies are truly masters of their craft and it showed. From Disco, to classics, soulful and Afro, there was something for everyone’s musical tastes in attendance. It was a day of fun and fellowship with the queens taking over the decks and beating the park to the ground!
