Slo 'Mo is Chicago's party for lovers with Kristen Kaza and Audio Jack, spinning R&B, soul, hip hop, jazz and funk from the seventies to today. Founded in 2012 with a mission to cultivate joy on the dance floor, Slo 'Mo is a party that unites people of all identities, bodies and expressions through the celebration of slow jams and queer community. In 2016, Slo 'Mo Sundays was launched to cultivate community out of the nightlife environment by providing workshops, classes & events led by community members including the cult favourite Slow Jams Yoga, Slo 'Mo Trivia, DJ workshops, and more.
