Soul Sunday x Dante Carfagna of Numero Group
On February 14th, join Dave and special guest DJ Dante Carfagna. Often referred to as the “Funk Archeologist”, Dante Carfagna’s crates goes just as deep as his rep. He’s helped unearth sonic treasures and brought them to light via labels like Grammy nominated Numero Group, Stones Throw Records, Jazzman Records, and Chocolate Industries to name a few. He’s also supplied a number of funk 45s for the legendary mix “Brainfreeze” by DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist. Both of which are his digging buddies to this day. In addition to hunting down these obscurities, he’s also written a number of articles on lost Soul / Funk artists for publications like Wax Poetics (as well as liner notes to some of the aforementioned label compilations).
To our delight, Cindy’s has become quite the popular downtown Chicago hot spot, reservations are recommended. To reserve a table for dining during the event, visit Open Table.
