The Webb Thomas Revue

with Jeannie Brooks , Eddie Morgan and Ella Gahnt

Webb was born in South Philadelphia and spent his early
years in Chester,Pa being raised by his grandparents while his Mother worked in Nursing. Webb lost his Father early on in life before his 3rd birthday.

Exposed to Music at an early age, His Uncle's Band would have Jazz Sessions at the Family home in Chester and it was there that Webb would "playfully" take the drumsticks and run upstairs and hide them under his pillow. The next day the Drummer would come and wonder where his sticks went? At the age of 5, He was enrolled at The Settlement Music School and hasnt put the Sticks down yet.

While attending St. Carthage Parochial School and West
Catholic H. S. for Boys in Philadelphia Webb became heavily involved in the Music Programs and began to play at Various functions such as School Plays, Church Functions, Marching Bands etc...

After that.. Webb began his journey to the different Music
Colleges. First Philadelphia College of Performing Arts, then on to Berklee College of Music in Boston playing with different groups and showbands such as The Energetics, traveling throughout New England and abroad.
After a brief stint in New York City working with the late great guitarist, Eric Gale and recording Island Breeze, Webb returned home to Philadelphia.

Jeannie Brooks

To those who know her, she is the consummate overall vocalist. Her talents envelope any style, whether it be pop, rock, R&B, soul, gospel or her true passion jazz. Where other artists are stronger in one area that another, Jeannie maintains excellence in all ranges of the vocal arts. That quality alone is enough to garner the respect of any musician that has ever played with her. Her ability to anticipate changes, improvise with trained as well as impeccable natural talent, and her stunning delivery are almost nonexistent in any other vocalist in recent times.

Eddie Morgan

The way to a fun night with us is to keep an open Mind & Heart! No telling what style of jazz we may play or what funny anecdotes might come from any one of us. We say "We hope you came to have fun that's great but we're gonna have FUN with or WITHOUT YOU!"

Ella Gahnt

I am a vocalist in the jazz/traditional pop style and I am honored to say I perform with some of the most talented musicians in the quad-state area of Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware and New York, who have also become some of my closest friends. Together, we tell stories in songs written and made famous by the best songwriters and singers in the world.
