Midnight Sun: Soul Sundays

February 24

There is no band in Chicago like Midnight Sun.

Established 1976, this 10-piece ensemble throws down with 5-part harmony, full horn section, and percussion.

Assembled from Chicago’s elite funk, soul, and R&B talent, members of Midnight Sun have backed the biggest artists: The Isley Brothers, Aretha Franklin, Buddy Guy, R. Kelly, Gerald Albright, Roy Ayers, Destiny’s Child, Brian Culbertson, The Emotions, Terisa Griffin, Fred Hammond, Lalah Hathaway, Al Jarreau, The Ides of March, JD McPherson, Marcus Miller, David Sanborn, Jill Scott, Johnnie Taylor, CeCe Winans–the list keeps going.

The first set is a curated selection of the deepest cuts from every era of funk, soul, and R&B–from all the way back to the present day.

The second set goes off the rails with YOUR REQUESTS. You read that right. Be stunned by Midnight Sun’s encyclopedic knowledge of soul–playing even the B-sides just like the record.
