Brew City Sigmas Look to Reclaim Crown in 14th Annual Brew City Stomp Down
MILWAUKEE (February 21, 2013) — The eight-time winning Brew City Sigmas will be one of 5 performing teams to take the stage at Marquette University’s Varsity Theatre this Saturday at 6 p.m. They look to reclaim their title as Brew City champions from last year’s winners, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.
Brew City Sigmas were dubbed step show champions in 2007 and have, since then, won 3 consecutive titles. The team has spent the past 4 months preparing for what they call “the step show to remember.” The team, having crafted a series of complex steps and rhythmic cadences, has become one of the event’s most respected competitors.
The team consists of seven members of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc., all serving or has served in one of Wisconsin’s three distinguished chapters: Kappa Rho, Theta Beta and Theta Mu.
“This year’s competition is the biggest and most anticipated because everyone’s bringing their A game,” said one member of the Sigma team. “I’m honored to be stepping against last year’s step show champions.”
Brew City Stomp Down 2013 is set to open its doors at 5:30 p.m. The show is set to begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase in Brooks Lounge in Marquette University’s Alumni Memorial Union.
The National Pan Hellenic Council at Marquette has hosted the Brew City Stomp Down for a number of years, bringing reputable hosts like 106 and Park’s Free and Chicago’s POWER 92 radio personalities Hot Rod and QBreeze. Not to mention getting local DJ’s like DJ PoizonIvy to keep the crowd on its toes.
The first Brew City step show competition dates back to February 1999, marking this year’s event the 14th annual step show competition. The success of Brew City was made possible due to the collaborative effort of Marquette’s 1998-1999 NPHC administration. The first male and female teams to ever win this competition are Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.
The brothers of Phi Beta Sigma are the Fraternity’s most valuable resource and strength. They are the primary means by which the Phi Beta Sigma objectives will be achieved. In order to accomplish the Fraternity’s objectives, it is essential that systems are instituted that effectively embody “Culture For Service and Service For Humanity” and promote brotherhood, scholarship and service.
