FEB 10: Lifetime Singer Ian Thompson of Rock Cats Joining the Jam to Fight Hunger

Ian Thompson for years has been the guy to call for custom window blinds, electrical work, or just about any home improvement, and although that all may still be true. San Felipe hardest working man can now be seen taking time for himself and is singing regularly with San Felipe's Rock Cats every Friday and Saturday doing probably 18 -20 songs. For the Blues Against Hunger Ian is going to perform a couple of the most known and memorable blues tunes from decades past.

Ian grew up in Newcastle England in the age of Eric Burdon and Animals, Stones, The Who The Beatles, etc. He had been singing all his life since he started to walk. Ian sang Rock and Roll, Blues with a "Circus" in Edmonton Canada. Very proud to sing with The Rock Cats at every opportunity. Arturo, Jose, and Tavo of The Rock Cats are all great musicians.

Ian loves the Blues and is pleased to have an opportunity to belt out some famous blues from decades past. He believes the signing is a great way to vent his passion.

He grew up in Salvation Army as his Church, where there were very musically involved church services, with brass bands and choirs. "My whole family of 7 with Mom and Dad sang constantly in the house, often 7 different songs at the same time," Ian laughs.

Ian believes the Blues always has a story to tell. According to Ian, "the rhythm of Blues suits my heart and soul".

We are excited to have Ian join the stage on Saturday, Feb 10 at La Palapa Bar & Grill from 1PM-4PM.
