In 1981, an American DJ group was formed right here in Chicago. They called themselves the "Hot Mix 5" and have been credited as bringing House music into mainstream popularity.
Founder Farley "Jackmaster" Funk, fondly known as the King of House Music, is joined by the original members of "Hot Mix 5" for the 35th anniversary celebration that kicks off at "Windy City LIVE."
This year's anniversary is about celebrating 35 years of mixing on the radio. The group is giving back to the community with DJ seminars for aspiring musicians and a health fair that promotes healthy living.
