Join us at the Wave Wall Performance Platform for a free, all-ages show featuring Duane Powell, part of Chi-Soul, the Chicago Soul Music Festival.
Duane Powell’s love for music started an early age growing up in the 1970’s being exposed to Chicago’s rich soul music scene. His uncles were disc jockeys until the mid 80’s and artists including Minnie Riperton, The Emotions, Chaka Khan, Miki Howard, The Staple Singers were their classmates and / or family friends. In 1985, Duane entered into the world of street promotions pounding the pavement promoting events for prominent DJs within Chicago’s burgeoning house music scene starting with Lil Louis. In a five-year span, because of their Avante Garde style and presence, Duane and his crew became the go to individuals in marketing to get all of the “cool kids” to events.
The Chicago Soul Music Festival — Chi-Soul — is an intergenerational musical conversation of Chicago soul music presented in honor of Black Music Appreciation Month.
Artist travel made possible through the generous support of American Airlines.
