Soul In The Park Turns One

One of my favorite deejay nights happens every other Wednesday at Footsie's in Highland Park. Rani D's Soul In The Park turns one on Wednesday, July 8th. Rani is the resident deejay for the night, which includes special guest spots from deejays from thoughout the city. Every night is special. It feels more like a curated art show than a club. It could be Jazz one night, Hip-Hop the next, Cumbia, Brazilian; you name it, he has had it there. Soul In The Park is a music lover's dream. For this special event, Rani's guest will be Buyepongo, a live Cumbia group. They don't have many bands at Footsie's, so this should be a night to remember.
