Nathan Eli Thomas Resume

      Nathan Eli Thomas is a gifted musician and singer. He has been playing for 24 years and performing publicly since the age of 14. While firmly grounded in the rock, blues and contemporary genres, Nathan also steps outside those boundaries and incorporates elements of Jazz, Swing, Bebop and Bluegrass into his playing. His voice is capable of smooth textures on tunes from artists such as Jason Mraz and Chris Isaaks, but he can also growl when doing those true rock tunes by artists like Bob Seger, John Mellencamp, and the Allman Brothers. With an ever growing set list that is over 100 songs deep he usually has something for every taste and preference. Adept at thinking on his feet, Nathan frequently takes requests and pulls off songs he's never played until that moment convincingly and with true style. He engages his crowd, encouraging them to sing along and have a great time.

Since June of 2009 Nathan has been performing regularly at hotels, casinos and lounges on and off the strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. After playing 145 shows in 2010, ending the year opening for the up and coming group "OkGO", he is now involved with Station Casinos and is a featured performer every Saturday night in the all acoustic "Strung Out Sessions" at Texas Station. He and his three co-stars in that production have accepted an invitation only audition for America's Got Talent on January 24th.

Nathan is also an absolute professional. He has never missed or been late for a gig and has a strict personal policy of not drinking alcohol before or during any job. He has played at Monte Carlo Resort, House of Blues at Mandalay Bay, Southpoint, O'Sheas Casino (Harrah's), The Sterling Club (a members only country club in Las Vegas), Fado Irish Pub, Big Dog's Draft House, The National Finals Rodeo, and several other venues. He regularly plays with musicians from the Blue Man Group, Sly and the Family Stone, War, Chris Angel, Legends in Concert, and the Fab. Nathan is in demand and held in high esteem by his peers and colleagues.
