A Music & Storytelling Extravaganza

Story Jam

STORY JAM is an energetic music-lit performance series based in Chicago.

With a fantastic 10-piece band and top storytellers, the audience hears true, personal stories, and original 

songs written for each story. Hundreds of songs have been written for Story Jam.


Story Jam is unique in that the songs echo the stories, and guest songwriters sometimes join 

producer-creator Stephanie Rogers in writing and performing all of the music.

Story Jam unofficially started in 2014, with a decades-long pre-history.


Every Story Jam is unique and fully committed to diversity and inclusion.


STORY JAM STUDIO is the educational arm of Story Jam.

Story Jam Studio holds classes, workshops, and retreats in various locations. 

Our autumn retreat is October 25-27th, 2019, at beautiful Ragdale in Lake Forest, IL, 

and our upcoming six-week class starts on October 15th!
