About
NOTE: The video/audio that you see and hear are done ( in my living room) with a standard Video camera. Most performers have their Demos done professionally, usually in a studio with HD quality video and audio overdubbing. The biggest complaint I've heard from restaurant owners and people who hire me for private parties is that OTHER performer's never "SOUND" as good as their demo's, or videos! I will always sound much better live than I ever will on these non-pro videos. I want you to be elated with my sound quality. I Use 4 different Taylor Acoustic Guitars in alternate tunings and 7 Harmonicas for all my performances.


I use no "TRACKS" (tracks are prerecorded instrumentation and/or vocals that one performer sings and/or plays along with creating the illusion, or sound of a multiple piece band) Performing hits from the Eagles,Neil Young,Jimmy Buffett,James Taylor,Gordon Lightfoot ,Neil Diamond,Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash (just to name a few) and a good mix of other Classic country- Country rock. I play harmonica on most of the songs in my repetoire and it works really well for the intros and breaks on many songs such as "Margaritaville" "Amarillo by morning" "Ring of Fire" and all of the original unplugged and studio recordings by Neil Young & Jimmy Buffett with harmonica parts.
Perfect for Romantic restaurants, Private party's of all kinds, Wine tasting, pool parties etc. I have over 150 songs in my repetoire and you can choose your favorite's from my Repertoire if you prefer. No venue too small OR large with the state of the art equipment I use.

Capt. Les Thompson played for my husbands 50th birthday and we couldnt have been happier. His professionalism, interaction with our guests and repertoire of songs was perfect for our event, not to mention, he is a very talented guitar and harmonica player. I dont know many harmonica players, but he is one of the best. We highly recommend Capt. Les Thompson.

Absolutely a pleasure to work with, he was recommended from friends who had heard him perform at 2 local restaurants. Les's vocals replicating the Eagles, James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Jackson Browne,Van Morrison, Neil Young and Jimmy Buffett were smooth as silk, but we were pleasently surprised (and blown away) by his uncanny vocal resemblance to Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and his country repetoire as well! Plays harmonica on most songs, great on his 3 acoustic guitars and just a Great "One man band" all around. I would highly recommend him for any occasion and will be booking him again for future events.

Les was absolutely wonderful! He has a great voice and all my guests kept commenting on how good he was! He played long past our agreed time. I was so worried he was going to lose his voice. My party was outside and it was very hot. He didnt let the heat slow him down. He was amazing! He was such a pleasure to do business with! He was a blessing for my party! I will definitely recommend him to everyone I know! Captain Les, I just want to thank u one more time and tell u how much I really appreciated you! You were great! Maybe someday we will all go fishing together! I almost forgot, thank u for the fan too! That was so sweet of you! Thanks again!

Capt. Les performed at our annual Men's BBQ. Our gentlemen had requested a country western performer. Capt. Les was great! Prior to the event, he took the time to understand our wants and needs for the program. He performed a variety of music for all ages in our audience. He is a talented musician. Our guests appreciated his performance on several different instruments -- this added to the variety of his show. His professionalism reflected when he effortlessly adjusted his volume and music accordingly to fit the conversation and activity levels during the event. Our guests and staff were very pleased. We look forward to booking Capt. Les again.

Les was extremely personable and professional. His music was just perfect! He preformed lots of music that our crowd really liked, and my Husband in particular being the Big 60 loved the mix of Country, Buffet & Neil Diamond among others. I would definitely not hesitate to use Him again! Regards, C Messina

We hired Capt. Les Thompson for our Grand Opening Celebration of our frozen yogurt shop. He arrived early and even stayed late. The must was excellent and everyone loved him!

Les was very professional. He came early to set up and worked well with the audience. Our venue was large and had difficult acoustics, so that hurt a little. He would be great for a smaller setting, but he did his best for our function. His equipment (guitars, speakers, amplifiers, microphone, etc.) was of the highest quality. Besides the guitars, he played the harmonica, and that was an unexpected extra. He really looks the part of a great performer too. Les is a nice man with a high principles and a delight to work with.

Les was a pleasure to work with. He learned a song that I requested and let me sing it along with him. He showed up on time and played the songs that he said he would. He is the perfect act for a backyard party.
