Our Town Foun­da­tion in Ham­burg will present Jeremiah James Live! at the Ham­burg Strand Theater, 6 N. Fourth Street, Ham­burg, on March 11. Con­cert pro­ceeds ben­e­fit ren­o­va­tions to the theater.

Grow­ing up in Kutztown, Jeremiah cur­rently re­sides in south­ern Schuylkill County with his wife and four chil­dren. He at­tributes his pas­sion for mu­sic to his fa­ther, who in­stilled a strong rooted love and re­spect for clas­sic artists, and his grand­mother who en­cour­aged him to go af­ter his dreams.

Jeremiah has been writ­ing songs for about 15 years and has been tour­ing with his band and record­ing his mu­sic for many years. In 2015, he and his band re­leased a mu­sic video, “Ev­ery­thing”, which was filmed in Ham­burg.

When asked why he chose Ham­burg as a lo­ca­tion for his video he stated, “It’s nos­tal­gic and time­less. Aes­thetic.”

Jeremiah is cur­rently record­ing an­other al­bum and is plan­ning to come back to Ham­burg to work on an­other mu­sic video, this time in­side the Ham­burg Strand Theater.

About the theater Jeremiah stated, “What an in­cred­i­ble place! It’s the most in­ti­mate venue around”.
