Chicago’s 21 time Award Winning, International Recording Artist and Culture Music Legend, Stann Champion got his first guitar the same year The Chicago Bulls NBA team was established in October 1966. Since then Stann has become a fan of the guitar and a huge Bulls fan.
“I saw the first team, coached by Johnny “Big Red” Kerr play at the International Amphitheater on Chicago’s south side because my step-father worked as the security and he is still with the Bulls today”.
Seems fitting that Stann Champion’s Roots Rock Society was selected to perform along with the Bulls vs Boston for “Caribbean Night” at The United Center 1901 W. Madison, Thursday January 7th 2016. Stann and RRS, known for their exciting, crowd pleasing stage performances of Calypso, Zouk, Compa, Reggae and other tropical root rhythms of the Caribbean. RRS will entertain their largest audience to date of 20,000+ with songs from their latest ground breaking CD, “TimeBless” on RRS International Records plus other classics.
Michael Vigan, Coordinator of Game Presentation had witnessed a stunning RRS performance at an Awards Presentation at Chicago Cubs Sponsor, Swedish Covenant Hospital in 2007 and felt that they would have an immediate impact at United Center and joy to RRS fans worldwide.
Billed as “Chicago’s Hottest Ticket 2016”, Stann is overwhelmed with joy for the opportunity to perform his guitar for fans of his favorite NBA Team. Happy “50 Years” to both Stann Champion and Chicago Bulls. Show time for RRS from 5:30p to time of National Anthem.
