15oct8:00 pmLive Music: CJ Thompson Band at Sambuca 360


Event Details

CJ Thompson is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, producer, songwriter, and educator based in Dallas, Texas. He is currently on with Intensity Entertainment as a guitarist.

Raised in Royse City, Texas, CJ started studying music at a very young age. He started on clarinet in the middle school band, for which he won many accolades as he continued to play through high school. While studying clarinet, CJ picked up other woodwinds for doubles in his school’s jazz band.

CJ picked up a guitar in high school, as many young men do, and immediately realized it was his voice. At that moment, the guitar consumed every free moment he had as he learned as many songs, riffs, licks, and solos as he could. Thanks to the guitar opening up his concept of harmony, CJ started studying jazz and improvisation.

While in college at Southern Methodist University, CJ played saxophone in the marching band and continued for four years. During this time, CJ began meeting other musicians in the Dallas jazz and neo-soul scene. He went on to study jazz guitar with Pete Weise.

CJ now freelances as a musician, producer, and educator when he’s not performing with Intensity Entertainment.
