Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia Presents: Acoustic Happy Hour with Thomas & April
Two artists, born in Florida, would not meet until their adult years in California. The story of this powerhouse acoustic duo began in 2015 in Los Angeles, CA at the Artist Relations Endorse Expo. This is where the two exceptionally gifted artists, Thomas Claxton and April Henry would meet. At the event, the two heard each other perform for the first time, each impressed with the other’s abilities. The following year at the same event, they would speak again, doing an interview together for RockStarDreams.com.

During the Fall of 2016, The NAMM Show 2017 was drawing closer. The two artists discussed bringing their talents together for a handful of performances in California at the world's largest music merchants convention. They decided to work up a handful of cover songs and originals, while also deciding to not make further plans of playing together, and just see how it all works out. After great feedback and positive reviews, the two are now very busy NOT making plans for the Thomas and April East and West Coast Tours!
