Opening Thursday, May 16th, at 7PM
On May 16th, join us as we host a conversation moderated by Mario Smith with members of The Silver Room ( Eric Williams Ron Trent- Rob McKay) and The Chosen Few (Wayne Williams-Alan King-Terry Hunter) as they discuss their respective outdoor music events that have changed the narrative about the South Side of Chicago and its role in cultivating the culture. The talkback will be immediately followed by a night of music from Ron Trent and members of The Chosen Few. Proceeds from this event will go to established scholarship fund for college bound students.
Chosen Few DJs
Since 1990, the group has organized the Chosen Few Picnic & Festival, which draws an estimated 40,000 House Music fans to Chicago’s Jackson Park each July. In addition to their signature event, the Chosen Few DJs regularly host events in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York, perform at festivals around the globe, including the Amsterdam Dance Event, Winter Music Conference, and Suncébeat, and continue to produce award-winning music.
The Silver Room
The Silver Room Sound System Block Party, started in 2002, celebrates cultural diversity through expression, music and art, is a community event hosted by The Silver Room and owner, Eric Williams and Ron Trent. Once a quaint affair for friends and family of The Silver Room, the event has grown into a vibrant and diverse, all-ages, neighborhood gathering and continues to be a platform for famed and up-and-coming artists from the Chicagoland area.
