“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Crowd Choruses”!

Hi, everyone!

This week, we’re going to we’re going to take a look at a very specific type of song that pops up a lot on both screen and stage. And that is… the huge group number! And not just any group number: the one where the whole cast comes together to sing and, oftentimes, dance.

And because this is Jammin’ with Jamie, we have ensemble numbers that even reference the fact that they’re ensemble numbers!

Try not to get lost in the crowd as we jam to a mob of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Questioning Choruses”!

Hi, everyone!

This week is a landmark Jammin’ with Jamie!

OMG (Oh My Goulash)!

Yes! We’ll be giving away two tickets to Rachel Bloom’s concert on September 21 at the Chicago Theatre, as part of her “What Am I Going to Do with My Life Now?” tour!

Yes, I’m serious, and don’t call me… oh wait, you didn’t.

By total and complete coincidence, our theme coincides perfectly with Rachel Bloom’s concert tour’s title! (I’m not even kidding: I’ve had this theme planned for a while.)

Art imitates life, imitates art, snake eats tail, equals MC squared, singularity… My brain hurts…

No question about it, we’re going to be jammin’ to…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Motivational Melodies (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

Remember those New Year’s Resolutions you made? Or maybe the ones you made last year? Yeah, whatever happened to those?

Maybe you’re still chipping away at yours, in which case, congratulations! Or maybe you’ve fallen away from working towards your goal.

You longtime loyal Jammin’ with Jamie Jammers know this well, but for those of you who are new, here’s a little something about me: I’m pretty big on motivating you all to go for your dreams and do your best. And I work as hard and as often as I can to do the same in my own life.

But I know as well as anyone that it can be very difficult to get and stay motivated and to have confidence in yourself, your abilities, and that your efforts can and will pay off in some way. Sure, you can give yourself pep talks all you want, but you can start to wonder if you’re just being delusional.

But don’t despair! It’s all about taking one step at a time. And it’s much easier to take those steps if you’re feeling good. So, whether you’re trying to trick yourself into taking a chance or just wanting to laugh a little more as you confidently stride onward and upward, join us as we jam to a mix of…
