FIRST, I’d like to shout out @JAM1CHICAGO (aka Jam One)
I’m kinda mad I forgot to shout him out at the end of the show the other night..
He was the DJ for the night, holding us down when the band wasn’t..
But, for all to know.. a lot of the things I’ve done in the past 5 years
wouldn’t have been as possible without him.. From pictures, to videos, music & more..
You can support his website at
& follow him on tumblr at
I would like to shout out the whole cast one more time too..
Starting with the band..
We had Charlie Coffeen on Piano, Garrett McGinn on Bass, Michael Piolet on Drums
Sam Trump on Trumpet & Christopher McBride on Saxophone

Jus’LisTeN, Sour Apples Crew, BAM!, Brazil, NCYTE & Mayfair Dance Academy
Our soloists & duoists included..

& our last piece was a sneak peek into the next series of #SampleSundays
“In Walked Midnight” was choreographed & arranged by yours truly..
