BLACK MUSIC MONTH JUNE 2023

Celebrate National Black Music Month with us!
Historic Record Row in Chicago, Illinois, birthed some of the greatest blues and R&B artists of all time during the 60s and 70s. Vee-Jay Records, located at 1449 S Michigan Ave, was the largest, most successful R&B label of its time. Vee-Jay was followed by several other labels at their former location, most notably Brunswick Records, with legendary producer Carl Davis, who brought us Gene Chandler, Major Lance, Jackie Wilson, The Chi-Lites, and Barbara Acklin. As the current home of Entrenuity NFP, hosting Mox.E Coworking and Overflow Coffee, 1449 S Michigan Ave remains a space for Black excellence to prosper. The building rings with the sound of musical greats from the past and fresh new local talent; the walls are covered with the original art of talented local Black artists and photographers, and the cowork space brims with the energy and creativity of Black entrepreneurs.
