“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “In the Moment Melodies”!

Hi, everyone!

On Jammin’ with Jamie, we often look to and motivate ourselves for the future. However, if one “lives in the future” 100% of the time, that gets exhausting, difficult, and even frustrating, as not everything works out the way you hope. And even when things do work out exactly as you hope, thinking ahead to the next “thing” will rob you of any enjoyment of what you’ve already earned and accomplished.

I’m here to entertain and inject some fun into your weekend, but I’m also here to help. So let’s enjoy our jammin’ time together with a mix 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: “Travel Tunes (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

Last time, we were all about the destination. This week, we’re all about the journey (but still with some tourist stops along the way)!

So whether you’re on the road, on a bike, or on foot, grab your nearest music-playing device and get ready to groove as you move on down the road with a trunk full of…

Come See “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)”!

Hi, everyone!

I’m an actor, writer, singer, director, DJ, and so many other things. I’ve also produced films. However, I’ve never produced a play.

… Until now.

I’ve long loved the show The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). So, in January, I started pursuing putting on an independent production of it.

Long story short: one Indiegogo campaign and many rehearsals at strange times later, we’re here! We have one show left at Terminus Theatre on July 19! From there… who knows?

Between July 5 and July 6, our audience nearly doubled. We’ve had audience members who’ve seen other productions who made sure to tell us how much they love ours. Get tickets in advance on Eventbrite to guarantee yourself a seat; otherwise, any remaining tickets will be available at the door.

 

“Oh, I am slain!” … And so are our audiences!

Come see us!

And may the Bard be with you!

Thank you for reading,
Jamie Lee

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

Hi, everyone!

This week, the weather’s warming up… sort of… in certain areas… for a little while. Anyway, the white of winter’s melted away, and although there are still some muddy browns, we’re seeing a lot more color outside!

… Or at least, that would be what you might think if you’re the time to seal yourself away indoors for the duration of chilly weather. In reality, there are all sorts of colors all year round!

But just in case you need a refresher on what’s out there, we have a whole crayon box full of… Continue reading

“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…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Friendship Follies (2019) (Part 1)”!

Hi, everyone!

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate romance… which, let’s be honest, gets celebrated a lot. What doesn’t get celebrated as much is friendship. So let’s do it ourselves!

Friends are special people. They aren’t tied to us by romance, and often aren’t related to us by blood, and yet, they still choose to care about us and become a part of our lives.

… But before they realize exactly what they’ve gotten themselves into, let’s delay that epiphany with a flood of…
