House Music 40 Partners with Chicago Promoters to Officially Kick-off Summer Festivities (Chicago, IL) — It has been 40 years since the first group of commercially released songs including “On and On” by Jesse Saunders and Vince Lawrence, “Jack Trax” by Chip E. and Joe Smooth, “Mystery of Love” by Mr. Fingers, “Jack’n the House” by Farley “Jackmaster” Funk, “Music is the Key” by JM Silk (Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley and Keith Nunnally), “Jack Your Body” by Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley, “Move Your Body” by Marshall Jefferson, “Your Love” by Jamie Principle and Frankie Knuckles among other iconic songs.

The floodgates opened to build a new genre of music created by a talented group of DJs, producers, and songwriters—pushed by young party promoters spreading the word throughout the underground movement. Soon, House music would eventually break the radio airwaves and become an international phenomenon.

This week, House Music 40 has partnered with multiple promoters to present an exciting schedule to kick off the celebration of House music throughout Chicago—the birthplace of House music.

What to expect

  • Proclamations from city, and county officials will underscore the cultural significance of House Music.
  • House Music 40 special collection merchandise will be sold at the Chicago House Music Festival.

We are honored to receive support from influential figures in the House music community. House music legend and singer Byron Stingily emphasizes, “Every city celebrates its music and artists, elevating it at least once a year. Chicago, as the birthplace of a global movement, deserves the same level of celebration.”

On behalf of Cook County, there will be a special presentation by Cook County Board Commissioner Bill Lowry to present the resolution of House Music 40. “As a Southsider who grew up enjoying house music, it is an honor to show tribute to the originators of house and its birthplace, launching a global phenomenon that has contributed to our great city and our county. We’re excited to be a part of the kick-off celebrations,” said Lowry.

ARC Music Festival co-founder John Curley celebrates: “I was raised on House music here in Chicago. It’s one of those rare global movements where we can still show our love and appreciation to a lot of the original pioneers and innovators. House Music 40 understands that after everything those DJs have given us, it’s important for us as fans to give back,” he said.

Proceeds from House Music 40 merchandise sales will aid members of the House music community facing financial hardships and medical burdens.
