After a one year hiatus and bumped up a few months to chilly February, join the StreetWise Associates Board for our 6th Annual Benefit for StreetWise - The COOL Party - where you can warm up inside the Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center for a great cause
Enjoy the free-flowing open bar and great food served to our guests. With live bands and DJs rocking out on stage, expect to dance all night long. We are excited to welcome Chicago Traffic Jam back as our headlining band! In addition, special guest StreetWise vendor Lindsey Slator will be performing - with My Boy Elroy spinning beats in between live acts!
My Boy Elroy
David Arredondo, also known as My Boy Elroy, is the Chicago-based DJ/Beat-Boxer of the world famous Acid Jazz pioneering group and Grammy nominated live act, Liquid Soul. He's shared the bill with legendary greats of our times such as B.B. King and Stevie Wonder and pioneers of electronic music such as Mark Farina, Bonobo and Beardyman. You may have seen him play at festivals such as North Coast, Electric Forest and Taste of Randolph.
Chicago Traffic Jam
Chicago Traffic Jam is known across the Chicagoland area for their blues, funk and cover classics. There's a good chance you've seen them play on popular corners of the streets of Chicago, attracting tourists and locals alike. They also get the dance floor grooving at bars and events around the city, most recently Suite Lounge and the Edgewater Arts Festival. Come boogie to some classic jams and funky vibes!
Lindsey Slator, one of our StreetWise vendors, hails from Hollandale, Mississippi, and now calls Chicago his home. Lindsey loves to write music and has written over 370 songs. He is inspired by his daughter to evolve his life. Find him at Monroe and Wabash for your StreetWise paper!
If you appreciate great art you'll love our art show - curated by Chicago Truborn - as the entire space will be covered in pieces for purchase. From contemporary art to vibrant graffiti, the collection is impressively versatile and affordable. Here are the artists already on board, with more to come:
