Teens singing Sinatra songs and doing a great job!
Thomas and Plecker started out as a two man show, performing in a Crooner/Jazz style, with singer: Derek Thomas and guitarist: Sam Plecker, looking to have fun and hopefully please a crowd or two. After there first show at a Woodcreek High School event, called "Fiestival" the band received a standing ovation; and went on to win Woodcreek's battle of the bands a few weeks later. That summer the singer: Derek Thomas, decided to pursue singing in this band due to the positive reactions from their peers at school. In need of a drummer, Derek contacted his long time friend since kindergarten; Nolan Le Vine, who gladly agreed to play with Sam and Derek. Choosing to play this "Sinatra" style of music was an easy decision.
The band now has a much larger repertoire and upcoming events at: Royer Park- Roseville; 9/18/11, Shady Coffee and Tea- Roseville; 9/23/11, and The Station Lounge- Citris Heights; 10/1/11. Thomas and Plecker has also been featured in the Sacramento Press. With time, passion, sweat, and love for music, this three man group has created a great sound and a love for what they do.
