About CroonerEd

"Hardly anybody knows this, but I'm really quite famous."

Eddie Thompson - CroonerEd - is a professional musician and entertainer. He grew up in a singing family where they performed around the country and recorded Thompson Family albums. At age 17, Ed won a nation-wide talent competition sponsored by the Gospel Music Association earning his first recording contract. He's since recorded several CDs, shared the stage with Grammy Award winner Bob Carlisle (of "Butterfly Kisses" fame), had several charted radio singles, toured all over the USA, "donated" two knees to his college football team, and wrote a book titled, "Monkeys In My Coconut Tree" (2016 Readers Favorite Silver Medal award winner). He also ate a brussels sprout  which he says was a terrible accident. "CroonerEd" is also the Director of LOGOI; an amazing ministry founded by his father, the late Dr. Les Thompson. You will be encouraged and blessed to learn more by visiting LOGOIMinistries.org.

Audiences love Ed's fun engaging personality and style. His voice is smooth and easy and just right for crooning. The music is terrific, the presentation and stories are fun and engaging, and his "Virtual Big Band" never misses a note. It is a great way to enjoy the music we love - a wonderful night of entertainment.


The Wonderful World of CroonerEd

"Entertainment that is Classy, Fun, and Romantic"


Delighting audiences for over 30 years

CroonerEd shows are fun-filled rides of favorite traditional pop standards set to marvelous videos. It's an evening packed  full of romance, laughter, and nostalgia.

A wonderful night of entertainment!

If you like the music and style of great entertainers like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, and today's Michael Bublé, you're going to love "CroonerEd & His Virtual Big Band."


CroonerEd shows are terrific rides of music and video filled with great fun, nostalgia, and romance. You'll enjoy top quality entertainment with the feel of a great after dinner show at a fancy resort or club.


While CroonerEd sings live, his "Virtual Big Band" videos are beamed to a big screen(s) for all to see and amply replace the very expensive costs of a live big band. Each aspect of his shows feature video clips from favorite movies, great dancing from the likes of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and even guest appearances from the famous crooners themselves. You and your guests can dance, sing along, or just sit back and enjoy the music and style that propelled the great crooners to the very top of the radio, TV, and film charts. 


Audiences love CroonerEd's "Tribute to Crooners" shows - which he tailor makes for every audience.  "Frank Sinatra Tribute" shows, and his "Come Dance With Me" shows. Of course everyone especially loves his "Crooner Christmas" shows. Each performance is customizable to fit your needs and is an inspiring multi-media journey of music, video and story telling you’ll long remember…and want to see again.

Outstanding Reviews


We had such a wonderful time! A really terrific, quality singer who I think would make Sinatra proud. He is very professional and fun. The standing ovation and encore was great to see. My guests said it was like a great after dinner show at a fancy club. I fully agree. Thank you CroonerEd!

Hey CroonerEd...

If you're enjoying his videos, saw him in concert, have a song request, or just want to add a comment, you can do so here. But be nice ... Ed's mom might read these, too.
