All Hail The Queens!!!

All Hail The Queens!!!

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.

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

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.
