Pour yourself a drink, sit back, click a song title, view some pictures, and get ready to be entertained...
Would you like to host a House Concert? You could have Cami performing with her jazz duo or trio, Cami & The Cosmopolitans, or the newly formed Jazzettes trio - Cami on vocals and percussion, Erika Paul on vocals and piano, and Julie Machado on vocals and upright bass.
It was a pretty exciting night just to attend the 2017 Northern Nevada Forte Awards for the Performing Arts... but to also be the recipient of the Best Music Director Award was a huge experience for me. I'm so grateful to all the theater directors I worked with as their music director, and all the singers and actors who made our work shine - it was worth every hour! And Congratulations to all the hard-working nominees!
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT CAMI...
Renowned jazz vocalist Cami Thompson is from Reno Nevada, calls San Francisco and Reno home, but the world is her stage. From jazz festivals in Europe, USO tours throughout East Asia, to concerts, clubs, and theaters across the globe, Cami amazes audiences with her 4-octave voice of beauty, musicality, theatricality, control, and passion, her zany wit, her spontaneous blasts of improvisational scatting, her humorous personal interactions with her listeners, and her deeply emotional connection to her audience.
So come on in! Listen to some music clips, peek at some pictures, watch a video, read a few stories, buy some CDs. Have you already seen Cami perform? Write her a note about a concert or gig you were at, or tell us about a place you'd like Cami to play, by going to her contact page.
Looking for a band for your special event?...
"Cami & The Cosmopolitans" are ready to play for you, bringing you the swinging sounds of the 30's, 40's and 50's with a sharp-dressed 7-piece band.
"Cami & Company" (trio to quintet) covers a century of American music, the rhythm and romance of our culture, interpreted with Cami's soulful jazz attitude.
"Cami Thompson Big Band" is waiting in the wings to fill your night with dancing and romancing.
"The Jazzettes" are a newly-formed (2017) jazz-and-beyond trio of professional female musicians: Erika Paul on piano/vocals, Julie Machado on Bass/vocals, and Cami on percussion/vocals. Our music spans about 100 years of jazz, swing, folk, Americana, pop, rock, blues, and R&B, and our combined experience spans over 150 years! Check us out on Facebook,,,

"Cami Thompson's finger-snapping flights of scat are as cliff-hanging as her ballads are touching."
"Miss Thompson sings with the clarity of a Barbara Cook, the range and control of a Cleo Laine, and the emotional impact of a Lena Horne. There's no denying the sincerity of Thompson's matchless articulation and the depth of her seamless shifts of mood in all she sings."
"Cami is a first-rate actress with what it takes to touch the soul of a song."
