The Warehouse, Chicago, and the early days of house music will be the subject of a new feature-length film focusing on the “Godfather of house music,” Frankie Knuckles, as well as Robert Williams, owner of the Warehouse. The film, entitled “The Warehouse,” will be produced by Bob Teitel (Barber Shop), Billy Dec (Rockit Ranch), Joe Shanahan (Metro/Double Door), and Randy Crumpton (The Truth). Production for “The Warehouse” will kick-off with a launch party and benefit for the Frankie Knuckles Foundation (FKF) at the Underground in Chicago. 100% of the proceeds will go to the foundation.
Tickets are only $20, which includes a 2 hour hors d’oeuvres and cocktail reception from 6-8PM on Tuesday, March 31st (exactly one year after Frankie’s untimely passing due to diabetes-related complications). Get your tickets before it’s too late – and if you’re feeling especially charitable, they have bottle service available.
