“Omaha Musician Plays Free Concert “4 U Mom”. Omaha Musician Craig “Thumper” Samuels is once again doing what he does best…Giving back. This time it’s “4 U Mom” A Smooth Jazz Tribute to Mothers Day. On Sat May 11th, He and special guest band “The Urban Groove Project” will play the free concert at 7pm at the North High School auditorium located at 36th and Ames ave (Doors open at 6:30pm). When asked how the event was created. Thumper said “Of all the benefits and causes I have played for and supported, I have never done one like this before, plus mothers are the most important people on earth and they deserve it. If it weren’t for them none of us would be here.” The concert is free to the pubic (not just moms) and will feature smooth jazz, poets, R & B and other surprises. Thumpers new upcoming CD “ONE” is set for release very soon and he will be performing tracks from it as well as other of his past CD’s. More information can be found at Thumpers”
