Event Info

Foo Foo Festival Presents Stomp Fest 

Hosted by Comedian Steven Brown of BET; featuring musical performances by Marsha Ambrosius, and DJ performance by Mannie Fresh

This year, Foo Foo Festival and Stomp Fest present the 2019 Invitational Step Show. It will once again be the anchor Step Show event for the Foo Foo Festival. Stomp Fest is based on a 125-year-old African American College Fraternity and Sorority Tradition of “Stepping.”

The event will feature some of the finest Step/Strolls by various Fraternities, Sororities and organizations from across the nation. Local favorites, “The Omega Lamplighters” are returning this year to make history — their motto is “We turn good young men into great young men.” 

Stepping uses dance movement and music to tell a story visually. The performances have influences including military close order drill, African Foot Dances, the stage routines of African American Soul and R&B performers such as The Temptations and The Four Tops. 

In the 1990s Stepping started to broaden its musical styles and participatory groups to include Latin American, and Caucasian Greek College organizations. 

Latin college students introduced Salsa and Meringue rhythms and as Rap and Hip Hop entered the American music mainstream the stepping culture widened its 21st Century audience and competition pool and became “Stomp Festivals.”

What Can Our Audience Expect?

  • Hosted by Comedian Steven Brown known for hosting the successful show “Comic View” on BET.
  • Musical performances by Jazz and Pop recording star Marsha Ambrosius
  • Multi-Platinum record producer Mannie Fresh will serve as special guest DJ, spinning several of his legendary hits! A legendary international super producer, Mannie Fresh created hits for global artists including Lil Wayne, Birdman, Juvenile, Young Jeezy, The Hot Boys, and more.

The event will bring in noted collegiate step teams to an electric Brownsville Auditorium. Tickets will go on sale in early September and will be available online at Stompfest850.com
