More information about Hamilton Loomis tickets
One of the most extraordinary shows of 2013 was our first year anniversary with Hamilton and his band in May. Despite taking place on a Wednesday (the only night we could get him), we had a 100+ strong crowd and he got no less than two standing ovations - one at the end of each set. Everyone was completely knocked out with both his showmanship and musicianship, and we've never seen so many smiles on a departing audience. We're so pleased to welcome him and his extraordinary band back. We've also a special treat below with a live performance from that very night!
‘If blues, soul, and rock can be said to form a triangle, you’ll find Hamilton Loomis right in the centre of it’, says Guitar Player Magazine. An apt description, as young Loomis is one of the artists at the forefront of bringing blues based American music into the 21st century and redefining it for a contemporary audience. Spanning youth and tradition, he bridges the gap between generations of music-lovers both in the U.S. and around the world.
Born and raised in Galveston, Texas, Hamilton was first hooked on music through his parents’ extensive collection of blues, rock, and soul records. He honed his multi-instrumental chops early, learning drums, piano, guitar, bass and harmonica by his early teens, and toured regularly as part of his family’s doo-wop group.
At age sixteen he went backstage to meet Bo Diddley, and before the night was over Loomis was onstage playing alongside the legend, who quickly became a friend, mentor, and supporter. ‘INNOVATE, DON’T IMITATE’…Diddley’s words continue to inspire Loomis and fuel his desire for originality. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member said of Loomis, ‘You got to put some seasonin’ in what you’re doin’, and this boy’s got the whole salt shaker!’
Touring non-stop since 2001, Loomis has brought his funk-i-fied Texas music to audiences all over the U.S. and the world, recently earning two ‘Best Artist’ awards in England and Wales.
‘Bo Knows...he is one of a kind...his name is Hamilton!” “You
better get out of the way ‘cuz he’s comin’!’ - Bo Diddley
‘Hamilton is the future of the electric blues.’ - Malcolm Walls, Delta Blues Festival
‘What he has as an arsenal is a soulful voice which he utilises over his impressive rock/blues guitar style ... so strong and confident hat it has your vote two bars in.’ - Blues Matters Magazine, UK
