Motown Tribute w/ Webb Thomas FT. Tonya Lynette

with Tonya Lynette

Webb was born in South Philadelphia and spent his early
years in Chester,Pa being raised by his grandparents while his Mother worked in Nursing. Webb lost his Father early on in life before his 3rd birthday.



Exposed to Music at an early age, His Uncle's Band would have Jazz Sessions at the Family home in Chester and it was there that Webb would "playfully" take the drumsticks and run upstairs and hide them under his pillow. The next day the Drummer would come and wonder where his sticks went? At the age of 5, He was enrolled at The Settlement Music School and hasnt put the Sticks down yet.



While attending St. Carthage Parochial School and West
Catholic H. S. for Boys in Philadelphia Webb became heavily involved in the Music Programs and began to play at Various functions such as School Plays, Church Functions, Marching Bands etc...



After that.. Webb began his journey to the different Music
Colleges. First Philadelphia College of Performing Arts, then on to Berklee College of Music in Boston playing with different groups and showbands such as The Energetics, traveling throughout New England and abroad.
After a brief stint in New York City working with the late great guitarist, Eric Gale and recording Island Breeze, Webb returned home to Philadelphia.
