The Terry Thompson Dance & Party Band plays the best music from Big Band/Swing to Party Rock 'n Roll to contemporary tunes for weddings and other special events. Bandleader, Terry Thompson, is the musical force behind the production. Thompson has an extensive musical background ranging from Las Vegas shows to working with big name acts such as the Four Tops, The Temptations and The Smothers Brothers to commercial musical productions, i.e., jingles - "For a Hole in your Roof or A Whole New Roof, Frederic Roofing."
Whether it's a Big Band Swing number like In The Mood, or Choo-Choo-Choo-Boogie, or Zoot Suit Riot; or a Classic Jazz Standard like Natalie Cole's Route 66 or Sinatra's Fly Me to the Moon, the Terry Thompson Dance & Party Band can take you from the Swingin' 40's to the early Rock 'n' Roll of Chuck Berry's Johnnie B.Goode, on through the Motown 60's (R-E-S-P-E-C-T), and up to present day.
The Band performs with as few as four musicians (generally, sax, drums, bass &Thompson on guitar) plus a vocalist up to a 12-piece orchestra. Typically, the size of the Band is five musicians plus at least one vocalist (up to two or three vocalists depending upon the occasion and the budget.)
The Terry Thompson Dance & Party Band's broad and diverse repertoire enable the Band to play for a wide range of audiences and age groups. Thompson's extensive experience in the music business enables him to "get the pulse" of the audience and gear the music in the right direction - getting the guests off their feet and dancing - but modulating the volume so that polite conversations are allowed too!
