WICKER PARK — A gathering spot focused on early childhood music lessons and parties led by cult favorite “Mr. Dave” celebrated its grand opening over the weekend — and the corner storefront was so packed that the doors had to close after just 10 minutes, its owner said.
“It felt great. Whenever you open a business, you never know how it will turn out,” said musician Dave Hamilton, known as “Mr. Dave” to his young fans.
Hamilton estimated that about 100 people showed up to the free party on Saturday morning, where he was joined by “Drumming with Greg” Fundis and “Tunes with Tim” Bredrup at Mr. Dave Music, 1935 W. Division St. in Wicker Park.
