Wayback Wednesdays

From the event description:

What we’re going to do right here is go back… way back when you left a party feeling like you had the time of life. Because the red light, red cup drinks & the music from 80s, 90s, & early 2000s did something to your soul. When some of best R&B music came from a group and when Hip Hop music instantly made you throw your hands to high five the air. When a slow song came on and that one person you been eyeing all night ask you to dance. Well Dott Daley and K Moon decided to help you relive those moments by creating a party atmosphere called Way Back controlled by Chicago’s hottest DJs PlayMaka, Gemini Jones, J-Rell, Mile High and Sean Mac!
