Stax Museum hosted the inaugural “Wax & Wine: A Fundraiser for the Stax Museum of American Soul Music” to celebrate its 20th Anniversary this year. Billed as Soul Records + Global Wine + Southern Chefs, the event featured DJs DJ Bizzle Bluebland, Zac Ives of Goner Records, and Daniel Mathis spinning vinyl from the Stax Museum’s recent acquisition of some 35,000 soul records from the Bob Abrahamian Collection that focuses on rare recordings from the Chicago’s South Side community. Guests enjoyed 20 wines from across the world to taste, from local restaurateur Kelly English and chocolatier Phillip Ashley. staxmuseum.com
