"Talented vocalists" "Professional presentation" "Great song selection" these are a few of the comments of praise from those that have heard this group. Ginger Thompson and her bands for years were among the most popular dance and concert groups in the area, and played dates from upper New York state to Florida on a full time basis before taking a long needed break. Famous for national recording contracts with both Capricorn Records and Chess Records. She recorded at famous Macon, GA and New York City studios.

Rob Smith on guitar, lead vocals and backup. A talented musician on the road for many years, Rob has played with the Buckinghams, Platters, Coasters, and Cryin' Shames. In addition, he has been recognized by "Guitar Player" magazine.

James (Juke) Aldridge, experienced drummer in all styles of music. From playing jobs with The Showmen, Clarence Carter and Hermans Hermits, to variety dance bands like Pizazz. Just enjoys playing in the band.

Under the guidance of businessman/band leader/keyboardist/bass player, Richard Cobb, the "Ginger Thompson Band" has reemerged and is taking up where it left off! Richard has assembled talented and very experienced musicians to again please and entertain audiences.

The group's variety of music features soul, beach, R&B, pop and standards. Fast moving and up tempo, or soft and tender as the occasion demands, this group is certain to fill your entertainment needs.

The Ginger Thompson Band helped to make Brad and Lindsey's reception a huge success. They were fun, entertaining and very accommodating with all our requests. They had a wonderful variety of tunes that appealed to everyone and even learned a new song that we had requested. They had our guest from 5 to 75 up on the floor shaking their booty. Even on their break they played some CD's that had songs that were special to Brad and Lindsey. Many of our friends have commented to us that it was a great party and they loved the band. I look forward to using them again in the future. I can't thank them enough.
