The Stoop is about inspiring people to own their stories and speak their truth

Every last Thursday of each month from 7pm - 10:30pm Rosa's Lounge turns into the Stoop.
“Stoop-Style Stories” hosted by Lily Be and Clarence Browley. The concept of “The Stoop” is a forum in which storytellers take the opportunity to simply share short and poignant stories from their lives, as friends do when sitting on the front stairs of a shared or communal home. 
The Blues jam starts after the Stoop around 10:30pm.

Lil Ed Williams: Lil Ed of The Blues Imperials:

”Electrifying, raucous, pure Chicago blues….Lil’ Ed is a guitarist extraordinaire….slashing slide and flamboyant stage persona." –Chicago Tribune
"Rough and ready blues played with unmitigated intensity…Swirling, snarling, riveting slide….The Blues Imperials pound out riffs and rhythms like they’re overdosing on boogie juice.  Scorching and soulful, joyous and stomping." –Living Blues
