Eric Williams of Silver Room & Guests
Featuring Eric Williams of Silver Room & Guests
Join us on our second installment in collaboration with our neighbor, entrepreneur and music lover Eric Williams titled The Silver Room Presents.
Eric Williams has made a life of music and art. From his childhood listening to and seeing live music and DJs performing at his father’s nightclub, Manny’s Blue Room in Robbins, Illinois, and lessons he learned from his uncle, the late Ronnie Boykins, a jazz bassist who played with Sun Ra, Eric knows the power and magic of music. Besides being an accomplished DJ, Eric is an entrepreneur, businessman, and community leader. As the owner of The Silver Room, Eric conceived, created, and has sponsored the annual Silver Room Sound System Block Party since 2005, first in Wicker Park and more recently in Hyde Park. This day-long event features performances from DJs, musicians, singers, and artists to promote community and an appreciation of music and art. In 2018, 40,000 people came to listen, dance, and celebrate on the Southside of Chicago. The Silver Room is at 1506 East 53rd Street, and The Silver Room Holiday Pop-Up, is at 1302 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Wicker Park through 12/31/18.
