The Thunderthumbs Project was something that I have wanted to do for many years. It is a celebration of the music and bass playing of Louis Johnson from the Brothers Johnson.
The Gig features a 10 piece band playing songs that featured Louis’ bass playing including tunes by Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, George Benson, George Duke, Jeffrey Osbourne, Lee Ritenour Billy Preston and of course The Brothers Johnson.
We have been playing regularly at The Bulls Head, in Barnes, South West London and other Venues including a date at the Southend Jazz Festival to packed and enthusiastic audiences.
There is a Facebook group here @ThunderthumbsBand. Check this out for forthcoming dates and clips from the recent Gigs.
Here’s our version of Love X Love, the George Benson classic from the album ‘Give Me Night’.
