“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Villainous Verses (Part 1)”!

Hi, everyone!

This Jammin’ with Jamie jam session has been a long time coming… it’s been lurking in the shadows… biding its time… waiting for its moment… and now… at long last… its time has come.

Okay, enough with the excessive ellipses. Brace yourselves for what’s coming our way!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Cold Weather Choruses”!

Hi, everyone!

This time of year is a weird time for weather. It’s technically still winter, and yet, people are looking ahead to spring. And if you’re in the Chicagoland area, it’s downright confusing. One day brings torrential rain, the next brings howling wind, and the next brings torrential snow.

The clingy cold weather may be irritating for some, but remember: warm weather is just around the corner! Until then, let’s do what we can to enjoy what’s left of winter with an avalanche of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Job Jams”!

Hi, everyone!

We’re celebrating the 4th of July on Jammin’ with Jamie, though in a different way than you might expect.

Since we jammed to politically-adjacent pieces recently, we’re going tackle this jam session from a different angle. We’re going to turn our focus to a subject that gets a lot of political attention from every side of the proverbial aisle.

So spruce up your resume and brush up on your interview skills, because we’re going to be jammin’ to some…

You’re hired!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Location Lyrics”!

Hi, everyone!

At this time of year, many of us travel, whether for day trips or full-blown vacations.

It’s time for the next leg of our Jammin’ with Jamie road trip that we started last week!

We’re already packed, so let’s set off!

Set your destination…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Travel Tunes (2017)”!

Hi, everyone!

At this time of year, many of us travel, whether for day trips or full-blown vacations.

We’ve done this a couple times before, which means we have some “frequent Jammer miles” on this Jammin’ with Jamie theme. This will be the first part of a two-part jam session, so make sure you stay with us next week, too!

No need to pack anything: just bring your singing voice and your senses of humor and adventure as we head out toward the horizon with a trunk full of trailblazing…

Let’s head out!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Rise Up Refrains”!

Hi, everyone!

Here at Jammin’ with Jamie, we jam to a lot of songs celebrating people (and other individuals) who take a stand. So I’ve decided to gather a whole group of them to create a powerful demonstration of…

What do we want?!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Politically-Adjacent Pieces”!

Hi, everyone!

There’s been a lot of grassroots political action lately. People who are generally not politically active have been spurred to action.

We’ve done this a couple times before, and I’ve “elected” to do it again!

So whether you’re marching in this year’s Pride Parade, giving a speech, or calling your representatives to voice your opinion, we’re here to give you the perfect background music with a party––– pun intended––– of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Superhero Songs (2017)”!

Hi, everyone!

I’m putting out a call for another grand Jammin’ with Jamie tradition!

But first, I’ve been doing musical improv at The iO Theater in Chicago in the group Charge Me Up!

Here’s our show from May 8, when the audience suggestion was, “Wedgie!”

Here’s our show from May 15, when the audience suggestion was, “Snowboard!”

And here’s a playlist of all the musical improv shows I’ve been in at The iO Theater so far!

Jammers… ASSEMBLE!
