Robert Williams, one of Chicago’s house music gems, recognized for his staying power and finally gets his day

by staff

The city of Chicago in 2016, proclaimed that May 28 was Robert Williams Day in recognition of his work that solidified Chicago as a house music beacon. But by the time Chicago’s house music community got around to honoring Williams, it was 2020 and the city was in the midst of a pandemic. Finally on Friday, from 6 to 9 p.m., fellow house music lovers can come to 610 W. Root St. to sign the official proclamation. But even if you don’t know Williams, you might know this city’s famed dance club the Warehouse.
