Sitting in the Park Forever: Bob Abrahamian Memorial Record Hop

Filed under: A Light On The Southside, Chicago Party, Master Plan Inc.


Earlier this year, Chicago lost perhaps it’s greatest booster/advocate/authority on indigenous soul music. This Friday (September 25th), the Promontory in Hyde Park will host Sitting in the Park Forever: Bob Abrahamian Memorial Record Hop. Proceeds will help fund efforts to archive, preserve, and digitize Bob’s robust/one-of-a-kind/invaluable collection of Chicago soul singles. On the bill will be Reggie Torian of the Impressions, Cliff Curry of The Notations, Doug Shorts of Master Plan, Inc, Keni Rightout of Center Stage, Hollee Thee Maxwell, as well as the Windy City Soul Club. We miss Bob everyday, and embrace any opportunity to honor his legacy, tell stories, laugh, cry, etc. Tickets are $10, and are available online.
