ASAE Foundation’s The Classic
When Choose Chicago welcomed ASAE’s Annual Meeting & Exposition to Chicago in 2018, the destination organization tasked CR to envision an evening event inspired by Chicago’s iconic blues and gospel festivals for the conference’s second-day VIP reception — The Classic.
Drawing from Chicago’s blues and gospel history, CR rallied to concept a live experience that celebrates the energy, spirit and authenticity that binds the two musical genres together, converging their sounds and aesthetics for a night or electricity.
The execution resulted in an infectious, soul-stirring experience that included a Rolling Stones-inspired tribute to Muddy Waters, a gospel-choir performance of contemporary hits, a powerful headlining set from the iconic Mavis staples and a soul-lifting sendoff by the father of acid gospel house music, Dj Pierre.
