A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix with Bobby Thompson Trio!!!

BOBBY THOMPSON (vocals, guitars)
Awe-inspiring master guitarist and vocalist Bobby Thompson is no stranger to the blues and rock world. He cut his teeth learning to play in the old blues clubs of D.C. from the likes of Bobby Parker. After honing his craft as a much sought after support man, Thompson decided to step out as a solo artist, releasing three albums since 2011. A recent review from Roots Music Report claims Thompson’s songs portray "muscular blues- and soul-rock strong on soulful vocals and cut-above-the-norm originals." With his smooth, gripping vocal stylings and his perfect musical taste on anything with a string, Thompson is what’s referred to as a “musician’s musician. Considered a “must see” act of the Northeast region, Bobby was nominated for the D.C area Musician of the Year award in 2015.

BEN TUFTS (drums, backing vocals)
Ben Tufts has played 900+ shows in the past six years, with over 100 bands and artists, covering most of the continental U.S. A few of his current projects include Virginia Creep, Uptown Boys Choir, FuzzQueen, and the Bobby Thompson Trio.

2018 marks Ben's nineteenth year teaching percussion in the DC metro area. He maintains a private studio of approximately 50 students, while staying busy as a clinician and instructor for numerous middle and high schools in the region.

A self-described musical omnivore, Tufts's holistic approach to teaching percussion has evolved directly from his 25+ years of wide-ranging experience playing rock, metal, punk, jazz, classical, latin, folk and theatre.

Bassist/producer Christopher Brown (The Ron Holloway Band, Moonshine Society) began performing solo sets in mid 2013 covering his favorite obscure and beautiful music in intimate settings, playing songs by artists including U2, Michael Jackson, Bobby McFerrin, and Louis Armstrong through to contemporary electronica, minimalist and ambient music relating to artists like Sigur Ros, Erik Satie, Brian Eno and Terry Riley.
