From The Heart To The Dancefloor: The Mothers of House 2017

There are moments as a house lover that stay with me; close to my heart.  Our parties are more than great music and positive people, house people chase a vibe when they head out to party.  Saturday night, I attended the Mothers of House Celebration.  I had an opportunity to sit down with the three amazing DJs who were the sound conductors for this event last week. You can read that I interview here.  I knew after speaking with them, that I was in for something special and they did not disappoint.  This is the 2nd year the Mothers of House celebration has taken place. The brainchild of DJ Ike Williams, he created a party to celebrate all of the mothers in the Chicago House scene.  Every single detail was covered and the mom’s in attendance felt the love and appreciation.  There were special t-shirts and merchandise created and sold by Nikki Hill in honor of the occasion.  Michelle Sloan covered every detail; from beautifully decorated tables, the delicious catered meal, the gift bags complete with roses, candles and a special USB full of music from Dee Jay Alicia, Mz. Nicky Dvine, and DJ Lady D. The entire evening was a beautiful gift.
