Chris Thomas has the style and swagger of Sinatra and the performance excitement of James Brown and Bruno Mars. The Chris Thomas Band specializes in the performance of vintage Sinatra, soulful Motown, as well as current popular songs custom arranged by its own band members. 

Chris Thomas has performed with various bands over the past 15 years. In June 2014 he created The Chris Thomas Band and since then the band has performed for major venues and clients such as: Florida Theatre, Jacksonville Jaguars, Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville Symphony, City of Jacksonville, and venues including the Prime Osborne Convention Center, Everbank Field, Ritz Carlton, Cloister Sea Island, Florida Times-Union Center, TPC Sawgrass, Alhambra dinner theater. 

The Chris Thomas Band will travel nationally or internationally for any occasion or event.

In July 2017 the band produced Come Fly with Me, a 600 seat SOLD-OUT show at the Florida-Times Union Center in Jacksonville, Florida with its 19-piece big band. 

In September 2017 the 8-piece ensemble performed their Sinatra to Soul UK Tour, to four SOLD-OUT shows and venues. 

The Chris Thomas Band can be sized from a trio up to the full 19-piece big band and still produce the same excitement at any venue. Its members are all professionally trained musicians from colleges and universities around the U.S. as well as the Army and Navy bands. 

Chris Thomas owns Monarch Ballroom with his wife Krista. He teaches ballroom dancing as well as providing support for their four daughters.
