The "Summer of Stepney" is a full season of events, performances, video and music releases celebrating the music and legacy of Charles Stepney, “one of the underrated heroes of Chicago soul music."

All presented by International Anthem and The Stepney Family, the official Summer of Stepney Kickoff Party is on May 29th at The Hideout, featuring a panel conversation between Stepney's daughters and Chicago cultural historian Ayana Contreras, DJ sets by King Hippo & Scottie McNiece, and a performance by a new large ensemble – called Rotary Connection 222 – under the musical direction of bassist and bandleader Junius Paul.

The band features Paul alongside Makaya McCraven (drums), Jackson Shepard (guitar), Alexis Lombre (keys), Meagan McNeal (vocals), and Stepney’s granddaughter Brandice Manuel (vocals). For more information visit
