Vinyl lovers convene every Wednesday at Reggie’s Chicago (2105 South State Street) for Wax On, Wax Off; a free weekly event for fans and collectors of all music on vinyl. In a similar fashion to an open mic night, Reggie’s supplies turntables and anyone can come in with records of their own, or borrow from Record Breakers (Reggie’s in house record store upstairs), to spin their favorites in 20 minute sets.
Each week Reggie’s has a different theme, and occasionally a celebrity guest host. This upcoming edition of Wax On, Wax Off, on April 2nd, will be focused on the music of Frank Zappa, and hosted by none other than Ike Willis!
As one of the longest playing members of Frank Zappa’s bands, Ike is still upholding his promise to Frank, to continue on, playing the music which Zappa had taught Ike so well. To this day, Ike fulfills Frank’s wish by playing with some awesome Zappa tribute bands from around the world.
Willis will be spinning some of his favorite albums, and then performing with Ugly Radio Rebellion following Wax On, Wax Off!
