Sunday Groove Sessions

Sunday Groove Sessions is a weekly day party held on the Southside of Chicago at Truth Restaurant. Each week, they feature guest DJ’s playing house music. Located in historic Bronzeville, the space is an indoor and outdoor bistro with an art deco design.  It’s an intimate space perfect for a Sunday filled with music and great hospitality. Hosted by Tonka Toi on Sunday afternoon’s beginning at 4 pm, the restaurant is transformed into a dance floor.  The DJ booth is located at the front of the restaurant, and a large bar with seating sits along the side.  There isn’t much seating for the day party as most of the patrons are dancing and socializing, but they have a spacious patio for those who want to enjoy the music, a good meal or even a good cigar outside.

This Sunday, I stopped by to hear the sounds of Gene Hunt and Kristopher “Jus” Denson.  A member of the D’vine One Enterprises DJ family, Kristopher “Jus” Denson opened the party with a set that filled the room with sunshine and light on a cloudy and rainy day. His set was warm and inviting. Specializing in soulful house grooves, Denson took the crowd on a musical adventure with a melody of various soulful house tracks blended with harmonious precision. (To View some of his set click here!)  DJ, Producer/Remixer, recording artist, and custom headphone designer, Gene Hunt has collaborated with a range of critically-acclaimed artists and producers.  He’s a true innovator and respected DJ from Chicago whose name is recognized all around the world.  Gene closed the night with a set rooted in Chicago House classics.  He gradually built the tempo exploding into a ball of soulful house energy and sent the crowd home on a musical high!
