A "Soul Cleansing" Night in House

A "Soul Cleansing" Night in House

I said in a previous blog that House Music was healing. For many of us, it is the music that has the power to uplift us when our spirits are down.   That was apparent this past Saturday night at the Promontory.  It was an unseasonably warm January evening and dance patrons came early and filled up the dance floor quickly.  Presented by RFK, The Way We Were and The Chosen Few DJs, Terry Hunter & Alan King were joined by DJs Vick Lavender and Steve Maxwell at the Promontory in Chicago’s Hyde Park Neighborhood.  The music for the evening was new and fresh, showcasing the best in soulful, deep and afro house.  It was the end of a very intense week of emotions for most of us and each DJ delivered a musical sermon that was food for the soul.

And We Danced...

And We Danced...

I’ve said it before but Chicago is a large city with an enormous amount of talent within it. As a result, on any given weekend, but particularly on holiday weekends, there are usually several parties with some of the best DJ’s in the business preforming at various around the city on one night.  As a fan and patron, your options are plentiful. This past Sunday alone had Mike Dunn and Farley Jackmaster funk in the south suburbs at N’Zuri Entertainment Center, The Chosen Few DJs on the Southside in Hyde Park at the Promontory, Jamie 326 in the Pilsen/southwest side area, and a Frankie Knuckles tribute on the north side at Smart Bar. That’s in addition to the countless other parties that were held in smaller venues from the south, north, east and west sides.  If you live in Chicago or the surrounding suburbs you literally have a place to go no matter what side of town you live on to hear quality house music.
