Tar Heel state Brothers, Craig and Bennett Thompson, got their start in the Entertainment business back at Myers Park High School in Charlotte, NC.  A friend hired their band to play a mid-winters dance in Charleston, SC. Excitement was high, as driving 2 hours with a band was a big deal, especially at the ages of 16 and 18.   After a successful night of playing old-time favorites, the band began getting booked for events and private parties.

During College, the brothers attended NC State and UNC.  Being 30 minutes from each other, they were able to keep the band going – playing fraternity and sorority socials, private parties, and performing at some of the biggest venues around.

In 2002, everything changed.

The two brothers pieced together a four man string band, and before they knew it, people were knocking their door down. In the years following, as friends and family members started getting married, their pipeline of steady work began, and continued to grow.

With over 2 decades of experience both performing and booking, we have an inside look at exactly how the process works. Thats why we pride ourselves on being Musician-Owned and Operated.
