Mandible Projects programs music for bars, restaurants and events, and curates experiences around the world.
For Heisler Hospitality's newest location, they focused on Latin American and Caribbean spirits, so we did the same for the all-vinyl music program: Pervuian chicha, boogaloo and rhumbas from the 50s and 60s, Afro-Cuban jazz, Haitian records and everything in between.
LA SIRENA CLANDESTINA
We recently revamped the music at this acclaimed restaurant to focus on chef-owner John Manion's early life growing up in Brazil. Brazilian funk and samba shine here, but share the stage with Afrobeat tunes along with some American funk and soul.
The programming for Dove's was rooted 100% in Chicago's deep musical history. Early blues from Chess Records and harmonic sweet soul from Chicago's south side plays day and night in this all day diner. Their 45 jukebox contains a constant rotation of records from some of Chicago's most respected collectors.
