HART has added live music to its weekend line-up in Harmons’ Den Bistro! This week the Den will feature musician Jeff Thompson performing from 8-10pm on Saturday February 11.

Jeff Thompson is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and performer. Thompson was born and raised in the same city that spawned Louis Armstrong, Harry Connick Jr., Dr. John, and Lil Wayne. His style sounds nothing like any of them. Except maybe Harry. A little bit. Sometimes. He left New Orleans at a pretty young age, and has lived just about everywhere else since then. He misses New Orleans an awful lot sometimes, but credits his health to having escaped it when he did. He thinks New Orleans is a really nice place to visit. The distilled essence of Mardi Gras, Jackson Square, the Mississippi River, and late night adventures he’d rather not discuss right now flow through his veins, indistinguishable from his blood.

Jeff Thompson has won major songwriting contests, even though he thinks it’s silly to pit songwriters against one another. He wrestled in junior high and saw his name on more than enough elimination brackets back then. Of course, back then, he barely ever made it past the first round. Jeff won 1st Place in the Eddie’s Attic Competition (other winners include John Mayer, The Indigo Girls, and of course the great Chelsea Lynn Labate of Ten Cent Poetry), 1st Place in the Cary, NC Six String Cafe Songwriter’s Competition and 1st Place in the Evening Muse Songwriters’ Competition. He was featured in Performing Songwriter Magazine.

The Bistro will be open for food and beverage service featuring lighter snacks in addition to the regular menu and there is a $5 cover charge.
