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.
