ABOUT THE SHOW

This special MLK Day Story Jam show will uniquely combine great personal storytelling with a 10-piece band and a theme of social justice! Original songs are written in response to each story, and the evening will be lively, funny, moving, and entertaining.

Story Jam draws upon Chicago’s top talent in live lit and music, and this show includes, among others, 40-time Moth Slam and Grand Slam winner Nestor Gomez, and NPR podcast star Shannon Cason.

The 10-piece band echoes each story with a custom song, written by revered Chicago artists: Sarah Marie Young, Liam Davis (of Frisbie and Justin Roberts), producer Stephanie Rogers (who studied theatre and music at Northwestern), and others.

Several of the band members have toured with international artists, such as Aretha Franklin, Beyonce, Melissa Etheridge, Box Scaggs, Liquid Soul, R. Kelly, and Peter Himmelman.

Story Jam is committed to diversity and community, and is best suited for ages 16 and older.
