Ronda Flowers (US)
Artist - 2019
RONDA FLOWERS, Queen of House, is a House Music pioneer and co-founder of RFK Promotions (Ronda Flowers and Koko), a creative social marketing and promotions company that specializes in hosting events for urban professionals. Their events feature some of Chicago’s legendary and international DJs that have captivated audiences for nearly 30 years on the Chicago born House Music scene. After years of perseverance, and achieving success with her well attended signature house music event across Chicago, DJs, colleagues and club owners branded Ronda as the Queen of House. Opening the doors at nightclubs for the House Music scene starting in the late 80’s as Timeless Productions, was not easy as a young entrepreneur in the Windy City. Her sell-in approach was all she had to pursue the club owners for an opportunity to have weekly House Music dance events. From the north side to the south side of Chicago, Ronda Flowers’ name has become respected by clubs throughout the city. Over the years Ronda Flowers and her company RFK Promotions have branded several weekly House Events such as I Live for Wednesdays, Soulful House Saturdays, Summer House Series, beach events on Chicago’s Lakefront, and House Club Tour, Chicago’s first and only annual House Music pub crawl. With partners Tri M Entertainment, We Jam and Sound Sanctuary Music, RFK Promotions Ronda Flowers & KoKo has a lock on the Chicago House Music scene. She is now expanding her influence as a promoter globally and collaborating on several events bringing her very own Chicago style with her select roster of talented DJs.
