Williamsburg Va Concert Robbin Thompson

I am very happy to see that Robbin Thompson is coming to perform here in Williamsburg, VA. If you grew up or lived in Virginia in the 70’s or 80’s then you probably know who he is.

IF you aren’t familiar with Robbin Thompson listen to his music here 

Robbin Thompson’s musical career spans over 40 years and still counting.

He was the lead singer in the Bruce Springsteen band Steel Mill, won the American Song Festival twice, and so far has recorded twelve albums. Thompson, along with friend Steve Bassett, authored the song "Sweet Virginia Breeze," which is considered by many to be the unofficial state song of Virginia. He has also written and recorded songs with Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit (who also sings harmonies on many of Robbin’s recordings).

Thompson has shared the stage with many recording artists, including Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Crosby, Stills, & Nash, Bruce Springsteen, and Bruce Hornsby, to name just a few.

His film scoring credits include the title song to the cult classic GLEAMING THE CUBE . . . and Robbin was the co-writer and vocalist on the song "I WON’T QUIT" in the film THE FIGHTING TEMPTATIONS starring CUBA GOODING JR. and BEYONCE.

Due to Robbin’s involvement with Bruce Springsteen, he is proud to have a song on the EMI/CAPITOL release entitled ONE STEP UP/TWO STEPS BACK – The Songs of Bruce Springsteen. This two-cd set includes artists such as David Bowie, John Hiatt, Ritchie Havens, Ben E. King, The Smithereens, The Bodeans and others.
