I’m Brad Thompson – singer, songwriter and guitar player based out of Fort Worth, TX, USA. I’m available as a solo act (me and my guitar “Barbara”), duo, trio, four piece band or seven piece band with a horn section. I/We can perform just about any popular stye of music out there – current hits, classic rock, Motown, dance, R & B, country, Texas country, and we write our own songs too.
We love playing festivals, private parties, corporate events, fundraisers, weddings, high school reunions, birthdays, school functions and house parties. Take a look around, we have plenty of photos and videos on this site and even more on our YouTube and vimeo pages. You could easily use up a good part of the day if you really wanted to.
Undulating Band Reunion – January 6, 2017
This year’s reunion show will be something we’ve never tried before (again). Brad Thompson & The Undulating Band past and present. We’ll start with the original trio of me, Aden Bubeck and Rich Stitzel. Then add Joey Carter and Paul Metzger on keys and guitar respectively. Then we’ll add my current rhythm section of Ron McCranie and Robert Shepard. So by the end of the night we’ll culminate into a seven piece band on stage consisting of two drummers, two bassists, keys, electric guitar and me.

That’s me singing a Prince song, oh yeah!
For a little less than five minutes I get to pretend I’m a mega-rockstar. Singing a Prince tune and backed by my super-talented band. This show was so much fun. It’s great watching the crowd rise to their feet on this one.
Our new best friend John Fletcher from SMART Video Services created this awesome video for us. All of the footage was shot at a recent wedding reception we performed at in Dallas, TX for our friends Rachel and Jay. Lately I’ve been attempting to play DJ during our set breaks and it’s worked out really well. John captured some really amazing moments, a little bit of line dancing and some pretty serious moves by a few people. Check it out!
Brad interview and live footage
Shot in and around some of our favorite places with some of our most favorite people in Dallas and Fort Worth. Who knows, maybe you’re in it?! Check it out – it has some inspirational moments for sure and then a whole lot of me talking about the band too (then there’s the part where I don’t remember if we’re a four or a five piece). If you know someone that’s looking for a band for their next event (wedding reception, festival, fundraiser, big party, etc) we’d love for you to share it with them.
Special thanks to Mike Daane for letting me sit in his fancy studio and gab about the band and super special thanks to Chuck Shanlever for shooting all the video at various locations in the wee hours of the night and editing the footage down to the glorious masterpiece that you now see before you. Bonus points if you can spot the “magic” disappearing and reappearing coffee cup in the studio segments.
