Join us for our monthly residency at The Whistler (2421 N. Milwaukee Ave.) every 3rd Thursday of each month. We have a different theme each month and this time we’ll be featuring the music of one of the most important musicians in the history of Jamaican music – keyboardist/organist Jackie Mittoo. The Whistler is known to have some of the best drinks in Chi-Town and the place has been bumpin for our Dub Connection.
