DJ Sean Back to School Party: Friday, September 1, 9 p.m.
Let it all hang out at a full-blown dance party celebrating the end of summer and back to school with DJ Sean. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, DJ Sean immersed his musical talents into the business of spinning tunes at the ripe age of 15. From that time forward he committed himself to two things. First, he vowed to never DJ using a computer. Second, he strives to always make tight transitions from one song to another, guiding dancers through an experience of non-stop music seamlessly blended together. He’s a Chicago mainstay in the DJ scene, traveling as far as Las Vegas to ply his craft. Remixes, beats, samples and scratches—he will get your body moving! Ages 18 and up. Call 349-7487 for more info.
