Jamie Pastman/UCH Concert Series

So many of you have been so kind to me, taking the time to tell me you enjoy the music I bring to our wonderful church. And many of you have inquired what bands I perform with outside of church and where you might catch a show…

I’m fortunate enough to perform with many of Chicago’s finest musicians and bands, and so an idea occurred to me. Instead of all you guys tromping out in the cold to see me play at some sketchy nightclub, why not bring the music to our church?

With that in mind, I’d like to introduce the “Jamie Pastman/UCH Concert Series.” I’m excited to announce I will be bringing some of the great musicians I perform with to our church for feature concerts on Friday nights, 2 or 3 times a year. We will feature the best of Chicago blues, jazz, pop and classical over the coming years, all at our little church!

Sheryl Youngblood

Our first concert will take place on Friday evening, Feb 23. If you a fan of the blues, this show is not to be missed! I will be performing with Sheryl Youngblood and the Youngbloods Blues Band. Sheryl is an incredibly dynamic performer who happens to be the 2015 inductee into the Chicago Blues Hall Of Fame. Our band headlines regularly at the top Chicago blues venues, Buddy Guy’s, House of Blues, and Blue Chicago. But on Friday Feb. 23 we will transform our church into a new “UCH House of Joy”! Please join us! This wonderful, fun filled evening will accompany our church’s Pledge Kick-off so you will not want to miss it!

If curious, you can easily find performances of the band on you tube. (In case you google her, Sheryl has another top 40 band called “Say Yes”, but that’s not the blues band). If you have any questions, please let me know at church.
