About

I was born and raised in Grand Prairie, TX. Was always drawn to music. Mom and dad both played. I remember my first turntable, it only played 45’s. I nearly destroyed that thing trying to learn songs like Classical Gas by Mason Williams, Cat’s in the Cradle by Harry Chapin, the riff to Hendrix’s Purple Haze and lots of others. Went to The University of North Texas in Denton for guitar and vocal performance, and also Cedar Valley College in Dallas for their audio engineering program. Dropped out of both though. Toured a good bit of the U.S. all through the nineties with my group, Brad Thompson & The Undulating Band. We made several recordings, won some awards, saw some beautiful places and played with tons of talented people along the way. Best time ever!

Currently I keep a busy schedule with live performances, songwriting, making videos and playing private events. Shows can vary from me as a solo act to my eight piece band and various configurations in-between. My core five piece is probably the most common. We play events as an original band showcasing my own material and we also work as a party band with a song list that spans seventy years. We play everything from Sinatra to Van Halen to George Strait to Dua Lipa.

I try to keep an element of service in my schedule by regularly playing for our Nation’s War Veterans, assisted living centers, serving on a fundraising committee for the Ronald McDonald House Fort Worth and playing at my local church. I currently live in the beautiful city of Fort Worth, TX with my wife who is a medical illustrator and we have four kids.

Married to a medical illustrator. Watcher of classic movies like Beetlejuice and Forrest Gump, especially with my kids. Serious about playing Gaga Ball. Big fan of this band from NY called October Project – specifically their first two albums. Wrote my first song when I was 14. Heavy consumer of Takis and Slurpees from 7-11. Fan of Escape (The Pina Colada Song). Proud owner of a mini-van. Collector of books and record albums. Fan of brussel sprouts. Knows Karate. Holds an impressive high score in Galaga. Still has my entire Hot Wheels collection from when I was a kid. Successfully stalked Lyle Lovett on one occasion.

My wedding was basically an awesome concert that two people happened to get married at.

Brad Thompson ROCKS! Brad and his band made our wedding so memorable and I could not reccommend him more! Brad and another singer played our ceremony and cocktail hour - he literally sang us down the aisle. He set the tone for the entire evening. Then his band came out and rocked the place - we were on the dance floor the entire night. Everyone even chanted 'One More Song!' like we were at a rock concert!! He was so easy to work with leading up to our wedding and learned the songs that were important to us. He even made wonderful recommendations when we talked through what our bid day looked like. I cannot recommend him enough - and if you're in the Fort Worth area, check out his social media and find where he's playing locally. You won't be disappointed!!! Thank you Brad and your Undulating Band!!

Brad Thompson, with and without his band, play frequently all over DFW & allow you to preview what you can expect prior to booking.

Brad made our ceremony so special! He is very talented! He played some of our favorite songs prior to the ceremony to entertain our guests, as well as music during our ceremony. Brad's voice and acoustic guitar were the perfect compliment to our wedding ceremony.
