Walmart stores Inc., the worlds largest retailer has once again joined forces with Omaha musician Craig (Thumper) Samuels in support of the 2009 Smooth Jazz “Toyz 4 Tunez” musical benefit concert for the Child Saving Institute. The concert idea was created by Thumper about 6 years ago as a way to give to children in need. This years show will take place November 19th in Omaha at the Keno King Grand Ballroom located at 65th and Ames Ave. at 7pm (Doors open at 6pm). The Toyz 4 Tunez show is a musical concert performed by Thumper where fans and friends donate toys, clothes, hats, and gloves for admission. The items then go to the children at the Child Saving Institute. A short meet and greet will take place after the 2 hour show. Dinner specials will be available before and during the show. This year Walmart gave Thumper a $1000 check in honor of the show. The stores involvement has grown since the event began 4 years ago. “We think this is a great idea, and are honored to have been included in this event since the beginning.” Said Jamie Thompson, store manager of the Irvington store.
Park Series 2010 begins before 09 ends The Summer Jazz concert in the park series put on by Omaha musician Craig Thumper Samuels has already booked 25 dates with the city of Omaha for the 2010 and the 2009 series has not even finished. The response throughout the series that started in 2007 has increasingly grown each year and has gained the attention of other bands, as well as other cities and towns. The 2009 series was expanded to two other Nebraska towns because of the popularity of the 2008 series. “Hopefully we can expand to more cities in other states because of the 09 series” Thumper said in an interview. Also with the growth of other bands and cities, CD sales have grown as well. Visitors from out of town, and natives who haven’t been here in a while pick up CD’s to take to family and friends out of town, and also get exposed to a lot of Omaha’s talent that would not otherwise get a lot of exposure. The series is good in other ways too, it gives people a place to go in the evening to sit, relax, and enjoy themselves and listen to some good music for free. All of the 2010 park series dates and other performances are posted on the Thumpers website at www.Thumpinhard.com
Studio 2 Radio to Air Thumper’s Music Thumper and Generation One has caught the interest of yet another internet music radio station. Studio 2 Radio, a prominent internet radio station for independent artists has picked up the musician and his band. The interest came from the release of “We R a Nation” the bands current CD that just came out in May of 2009. With the interest of “We R a Nation” Studio 2 Radio was directed to www.thumpinhard.com where their attention was drawn to the CD’s “Six Education” and “Hands and Feet”. Where tracks from these CD’s can be heard on the Studio 2 Radio Backstage area.
We R a Nation Gets 8 of 10 Stars from Leading A&R music company. Americas leading musical A& R giant TAXI has given Thumper & Generation One’s latest CD “We R a Nation” 8 out of 10 starts in 6 separate categories ranging from Music, Marketability, Arrangement, Production, Engineering, and Musicianship. The A&R review board also sent comments and recommendations such as “solid work all the way around”, and the photo makes a statement, but the playing makes the louder statement”. Another review board member says “Very good studio work, well defined instrumentation, sounds radio ready to me” !!! The musical genius and his band have been receiving new requests from radio stations from all over the world for their music. Satalite, internet, and land stations alike.
Thumper & Generation One’s latest CD, We R a Nation has been picked up by a Smooth Jazz radio station in Portugal. Mr. Ivo Martin, a senior executive and program manager of the smooth jazz station heard the new music from a new music internet radio station that features new upcoming jazz artists, and was directed to Thumpinhard.com where he contacted us and requested to have copies of Thumpers music to add to the roster on his smooth jazz stations. Since then more requests are coming in from other countries such as Japan and the Netherlands.
"We R a Nation," the 3rd CD by Thumper & Generation One, finds the one-man band continuing to navigate the sounds and styles of R&B, jazz, funk, rock, and pop with the intuitive finesse of a veteran ensemble. Opening with a propulsive R&B rock gem, "It's Time," worthy of Prince, Thumper establishes the contours of the 13 tracks to follow. The title song, "We R a Nation," rides an R&B quiet storm groove in a call-out for unity and tolerance, while "Dreams do Come True" is an urban-leaning contemporary song with a smooth jazz composition of both melody and rhythm. Finishing as strong as it started, the album closes with a bang with the bracing funk of "Chicken Pickin'," with its Southern-influenced groove and bursts of soulful horns. But throughout the album, its Thumper's tasteful guitar virtuosity – at times, reminiscent of George Benson, among other stalwarts – that provides the musical backbone to his accessible and catchy compositions. Definitely for fans of contemporary R&B and smooth jazz, Thumper & Generation One's "We R a Nation" CD has more than enough going on to satisfy the broadest of audiences. -Rice B. and the RadioIndy.com Reviewer Team
Thumper spent thursday and friday in shock after learning about the death of one of his greatest inspirations both in music and in humanity....Michael Jackson.

Omaha Musician Intros New Parks, New CD. Omaha musician Craig “Thumper” Samuels has added two parks (in two different cities) to his Summer Concert in the park series, along with a brand new CD to go with them. As a growing effort to draw attention to some of Omahas less popular, and newer talent, Thumper has inked deals with the cities of Fremont and Bellevue to expand the 2009 Concert series to parks there. “As the end of the 2008 series came to a close, the positive response gave me the idea to expand the series to other areas for the 2009 series”. With the expansion of the series, we decided to take out the word “Jazz” and open the series to other genres as long as it’s clean. Earlier this month, Thumper released his latest CD “We R a Nation”. An original blend of R & B , Smooth Jazz, and Funk. Critics say “This is his best work yet.” Although his previous release “Six Education” is still doing very well. All of Thumpers CD’s as well as his tour schedule are available on his website www.thumpinhard.com, and at all of his shows.
“Hands & Feet” by Thumper & Generation One, featuring the one man band from Nebraska known as “Thumper,” is an instrumental blend of many musical styles, moods, and tempos. The musical landscape takes you on a journey through jazz-fusion, funk, R&B and pop/rock oriented grooves. The aptly titled “All Action & No Talk” is a highlight for his many instrumental talents, particularly on keyboard and guitar. This title could be used to describe the entire CD. Another hot groove number that feature’s Thumper’s impressive keyboard work, is “Dreamscape.” There are also gentle moments, provided by songs such as “Sittin’ By the Fireplace” and “Sleep With Me,” which feature lush melodies and soulful solos. The production is lively and crisp, focusing on creating memorable tracks with infectious grooves and touching melodies. This CD showcases some thoughtful writing and great musicianship and is recommended for any fan of instrumental smooth jazz, jazz-funk, or Urban/R&B. ..-Rodney and the RadioIndy. com Reviewer Team Check out Thumper & Generation One's music on RadioIndy. com with link to purchase and links to popular sites
