Description

FILM + CELEBRITY DJs + LIVE MUSIC

Join the 2019 Chicago South Side Film Festival to celebrate 35 years of House Music!

On January 20, 1984 Jesse Saunders of the Chosen Few DJs made the first House Music record – “On and On” - and changed the course of music history. Saunders is a world-renowned producer who is featured on the walls of the Smithsonian Institute Museum of African American history for his contributions to music history. Continuing to top the charts to this day, Jesse is honored to share the evolution in a journey through digitally created art and interviews depicting the Pioneers and events of the past 35 years.

In addition to being a celebrated musician and DJ, Jesse Saunders is a filmmaker. He will take us on a journey through time with his film “HOUSE MUSIC: THE REAL STORY”.

This is a ONE OF A KIND event that will never happen again. This unprecedented live show in documentary form will feature some of the original artists that have pioneered the phenomenon known as House Music!
