The early days of the Chicago-born genre of music that became an international sensation will be brought to life through song and dance in a new stage musical written and directed by house music pioneer Mickey “Mixin” Oliver. REVOLUTION CHICAGO is the story of how “House Music” came to be when a radio program director, Lee Michaels, sought a way to revitalize the struggling radio station WBMX. Michaels had a vision to bring the art of a DJ’s turntable skills and his music to radio. He hired the five best dance club DJs in the Chicago metro market, named them the Hot Mix 5, led by Mickey Oliver, and soon they became legends in radio.
