The life and music of Morris "Butch" Stewart to be celebrated in weekend memorial

(June 22, 2017) The life and music of Morris "Butch" Stewart will be celebrated by family, friends and the industry during a three-day open house memorial this weekend. Stewart died on May 19 at Evanston Hospital after a battle with cancer. He was 64.

The memorial celebration will begin in Evanston at Good Stewart Productions on Friday, June 23rd 6pm-9pm, resume Saturday June 24th 5pm-9pm, and conclude Sunday June 25th 3pm-7pm.

Born in Evanston, IL, Stewart's professional career began when he joined Ramsey Lewis as a backing vocalist in 1975. Other artists working with Lewis at the time included Brenda Mitchell, who would later become Stewart's his wife.

That same year, Stewart also began a fruitful relationship with the multi-platinum, multi-genre band Earth Wind & Fire, which was formed in Chicago in 1970.

In addition to performing with the group on several dates of its 1975 tour, he wrote the song "King of Groove," which appeared on the 1990 album, "Heritage."

In 1978, Stewart launched JoyArtMusic, a production company that would grow into one of the most innovative and significant music houses in the country. It was especially celebrated for its TV and radio theme song creation.

The Oprah Winfrey Show and the Tom Joyner Morning Show are just a few of the programs that began every episode with music created by JoyArt.
