A family affair plus one, the Thompson's have been playing music
for most of their lives. Charlie Thompson, formerly of The Parrots,
and Flyin' Blind, is revered among local musicians. He has played
in bands that opened for The Allman Brothers, The Byrds, The Marshall
Tucker Band, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds.
Charlie's oldest son, Cortie, is an established singer/songwriter
as well. He has written music for the past ten years and has played
with bands in Charleston, Clemson, and Big Sky, Montana. His brother
Matt Thompson, an experienced surfer who frequents the warm waters
of Costa Rica, developed much of his unique songwriting style by
combining his love of reggae and funk with his ‘rock and roll’
genes. Evan Bivans, formerly of Jump Little Children has
joined the band on drums. Evan's wide musical background and experience
are a great addition.
Overstood is entertaining packed crowds at local venues such as
Johnson’s, O’Malley’s, Henry’s - Mount Pleasant.

band in person and experience some of Charleston finest music!
