Blue Chicago Cool is a minimalistic fusion of music and culture using Chicago as the backdrop. Set in 1960s Chicago just after the black renaissance, we watch as the city explodes with urban culture! Music genres such as Blues, Jazz, Rock N Roll, R&B, and Soul are taking over television, and the airwaves, bringing droves of diverse people together. Fast forward to 2016 we’ve witnessed the culture of Hip Hop seemingly come from nowhere, and decades later is one of the most adored music genres since the 1950-1960s. Blue Chicago Cool is the fusion of these time periods, and musical genres together, sonically blending hip hop with blues, with soul, and jazz and all those genres we love!
We boldly explore what the 1960s would look like had hip hop existed, we’ve recreated multiple scenarios, built beautiful storylines, and took historical places like “Ruby Lee’s Gatewood Tavern” where all the great blues, and Jazz musicians sang and performed, and reimagined it. Blue Chicago Cool is our bold attempt to fuse these two time periods together and create a new “old” Chicago, filled with energetic movement, vivid stories, heart warming performances, and much, much more. Blue Chicago Cool is a one of a kind dance experience that a you dont want to miss.
