Host and producer of Story Jam—a unique live lit and music show—Stephanie Rogers writes songs for award-winning storytellers' personal stories, which are played by a ten-piece band. 

Steph combines her love of non-fiction theatre, personal storytelling, and music to produce Story Jam.

After graduating in theatre from Northwestern University, Stephanie acted in television, theatre, and movies, while performing as the lead singer of rock, folk, funk, pop, and progressive bands. Her event band, The Stephanie Rogers Band, has performed at hundreds of private events in and around Chicago.
