Music was an important part of Southeast Chicago’s cultural scene and was featured during many individual and community social events, including weddings, reunions, anniversaries, church celebrations, neighborhood festivals, and dinner dances. Various groups drew upon musical traditions from their communities of origin and speciality bands played in polka, tamburitza, mariachi, blues, or other traditions.
