Jesse Saunders began spinning records on the Chicago disco scene nearly a quarter-century ago. He helped define the Chicago house sound alongside such legends as Frankie Knuckles and Ron Hardy, at a time when The Warehouse was the size of The Vagabond’s bar room, and house music was a term unknown outside of Chicago. He’s also credited as the “originator” of house music, his 1984 release “On and On” the first record to ever be officially classified as “house.”
On Saturday he’ll grace The Vagabond’s decks with a soul forged in Chicago over a quarter century ago, and a crate amassed throughout the span of house music’s history.
In the bar room, Ryan Evans and Ray Milian will be spinning their eclectic array of House, Funk, Disco, and everything in between. As the night rambles on, Carmel Ophir takes over the decks to serve up his special stew of Rock, Mod, Garage, Psychedelic, and Soul.
In the garden, jump on board the steel wheels with DJ A-Train, giving you Rare Grooves, R & B, Funk, and Hip-Hop.
Featuring all of your favorite scantily clad Naughty Misfits and Sex Kittens.
Complimentary Belvedere Vodka from 10-11PM
