John "JT" Thompson
Funky, Jazzy, Soulful, Rocking Blues
About JT Thompson
John “JT” Thompson is an inimitable fixture in the central Pennsylvania music scene. You may have seen him as the keyboard player in one of the various groups he performs with, like the Triple A Blues Band or Natascha and the Spy Boys, or as a soloist, perhaps playing gentle music in the background during dinner, or rocking out as a one-man band.
Influenced by great piano players like Dr. John, Ann Rabson, Professor Longhair, and Bill Payne, JT’s style is rooted in the Blues, but his repertoire
encompasses much more than that.
JT covers Popular, Rock, and Jazz music, Piano Bar tunes, Standards – and Original tunes. He plays for receptions, weddings, birthdays, while performing
in restaurants, breweries, hotels, theaters, house parties – and barns. In the recording studio, he’s been told that his playing “elevates the track.” If you
need a piano player for any reason, give JT a call.
He’s released two albums of music, “Chase Away Your Blues” and “This Way That Way,” has been a Jamarama host on the Legendary Blues Cruise, and a
finalist at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.
