  • HAMILTON LOOMIS, BO DIDDLEY GUITAR TRIBUTE, CROSSROADS ANTWERP, OCT. 7TH, 2012

    7:11

    Accomplished guitar solo by Hamilton Loomis, saluting Bo Diddley's unique blues style and 'open E' guitar tuning. Hamilton and band delivered a fine set of music to a delighted audience, when they played Crossroads café, Antwerp, Belgium, on Sunday, October 3rd, 2012. The band continues to tour Europe throughout October 2012, with gigs in Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany:

    Extract from Hamilton's website:
    If blues, soul, and rock can be said to form a triangle, you'll find Hamilton Loomis right in the center of it, says Guitar Player Magazine. Loomis plays the inverse. His is an undeniably blues based artist escalating into what All Music Guide calls ...a mixed bag of modern blues, modern funk, and slick soul. Loomis played every instrument on his debut and 'Ain't Just Temporary.' The debut entitled 'Hamilton' was under Grammy consideration, an impressive feat for a self-released debut indie record.

    Born and raised in Galveston, Texas, Loomis was first hooked on music through his parents' extensive collection of blues, rock, and soul records. Loomis 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. Since that meeting, Diddley 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!. One of the young artist's fondest memories was when Diddley took his iconic hat off mid-show and crowned it on his head, as if figuratively passing on the torch and proudly declaring Loomis as the legitimate heir in line. Bo Diddley first appeared on Loomis' debut. And Diddley's last ever recorded song is You Got To Wait, from Loomis' 2007 Blind Pig release 'Ain't Just Temporary.' The co-written track featured both Diddley's unmistakable voice and tremolo guitar for the last time. Other Texas blues legends such as Joe Hughes, Johnny Copeland, Gatemouth Brown and Albert Collins schooled Loomis early on in the finer points of the music, recognizing the youngster's talent and potential. Loomis' first Blind Pig Records release, 'Kickin' It,' released in 2003, presented his innovative approach to an audience hungry for something new in roots music. Said Blueswax, Loomis really gets it, and he is only in his twenties! Don't just dust off those old hackneyed Blues, create your own style of funkified soulful music. Southland Blues raved, 'Kickin' It' is one of the best CDs of the year. This kid's got most all of it and then some. More than worth a listen. And the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel noted, Loomis displays a polished vocal, guitar and songwriting knack that could win him the sort of crossover audience that Robert Cray and B.B. King enjoy.

  • Hamilton Loomis - Purple Rain In Santa Fe Texas - 9/23/17

    9:32

    Hamilton Michael Loomis (born November 1, 1975) is an American electric blues guitarist, singer, songwriter, and record producer.
    One of his eight albums released to date, Ain't Just Temporary, peaked at number 7 in the Billboard Top Blues Albums Chart in September 2007.

    Loomis was born in Galveston, Texas, United States, to musical parents and he learned to play the drums, piano, guitar and harmonica at an early age. In his teenage years, he was part of a doo-wop singing family group that performed at the Delta Blues Festival. Having broken away from this stricture, Loomis began playing solo and met a number of renowned blues musicians. Loomis later commented, When I was coming up in the music scene, I was lucky to have musical mentors like Joe Guitar Hughes, Johnny Copeland, and of course, rock icon Bo Diddley.” “These ‘veterans’ took the time to teach and give advice to us youngsters, as if ‘passing the torch.’ Loomis also got help and advice from others including Clarence Gatemouth Brown and Albert Collins. Diddley especially became a friend and mentor to Loomis, later making guest appearances on a couple of Loomis' albums (Hamilton and Ain't Just Temporary), and giving Loomis a red guitar that he still plays.
    In 1994, Ham-Bone Records issued Loomis' debut album, Hamilton, which received a nomination for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Albumin 1995. In 1996, Just Gimme One Night was released. In 2000, Loomis released All Fired Up, and acted in the role of Trevor in the VH1 movie At Any Cost. Three years later, Loomis signed a recording contract with Blind Pig Records, who issued, Kickin' It. Ain't Just Temporary (2007), another Blind Pig release, peaked at number 7 in the Billboard Top Blues Albums Chart in September 2007. In 2006, Loomis appeared as a guest on Jimmy Needham's album, Speak, playing guitar, bass and harmonica.
    He later returned to Ham-Bone Records as he felt that Blind Pig, as a blues only outlet, was restricting his output purely along those lines. Give It Back(2013) featured Victor Wooten (Béla Fleck and the Flecktones) on bass and vocals. In the liner notes to the album, Loomis commented that he was hoping to share his knowledge with younger musicians. The title track was a musical tribute to his own mentors, and Loomis stated, Now that they have passed, it's my duty, not just an obligation, to do the same with this generation's young musicians. That's giving it back, handing it down, passing it on, like the song says.”
    In 2009, the Hamilton Loomis Band performed at the Darvel Music Festival.
    The Hamilton Loomis Band played at the 100 Club in London in June 2015, at the conclusion of their UK tour. Loomis and his band had an extensive touring schedule in the United States throughout the first eight months of 2016. 2017 has an equally busy tour schedule with performances in a number of Texas and Midwest venues, along with performance dates in the UK throughout July and August.

    Extracts from the band website:
    Hamilton Loomis: If blues, soul, and rock can be said to form a triangle, you'll find Hamilton Loomis right in the center of it, says Guitar Player Magazine. When I was coming up in the music scene, I was lucky to have musical mentors like Joe 'Guitar' Hughes, Johnny 'Clyde' Copeland, and of course, rock icon Bo Diddley, stated Loomis. These 'veterans' took the time to teach and give advice to us youngsters, as if 'passing the torch. A protégé of Bo Diddley, Loomis met the icon backstage at the age of 16 at Houston's famed venue Rockefeller's. Before the night was over, Loomis was onstage playing guitar with the legend. Diddley quickly became friend, mentor, collaborator and supporter, appearing on two of Loomis' albums and presenting a cherished red guitar that he still plays.
    Fabian Hernandez: In 2001, Fabian joined the prestigeous Tex-Mex group Little Joe Y La Famila which exposed him to several contrasting styles of music. During his time with Little Joe, he collabrated with artists such as Ray Benson (Asleep at the Wheel), La Mafia, Los Lobos, War, Christian Castro, Ruben Ramos, Stefani Montiel, Elida Reyna, Shelly Lares, Emilio Navaria, Rick Trevino, Ramon Ayala, Ricardo Castillion, Jay Perez and many more. In 2006, Fabian joined Ruben Ramos and The Mexican Revolution, During his time with Ruben, Fabian was asked to be a part of Chente Barerra's 2006 studio record which earned him his first Grammy award winning credits as a saxophonist. In 2009, Fabian would be a part of another Grammy award winning record Ruben Ramos Viva La Revolucion. Fabian, as an engineer/session player has contributed to several top 10 hits, 7 grammy award nominations, and various awards.
    Dante Ware: Dante started as a drummer, at age 14, he learned keyboards, bass at 16, and rhythm guitar at 18. I began composing, producing, and studio engineering at the age of 16. I played drums for everything the music departments had to offer all through school. Dante has played in a huge variety of groups; in 2011, he played bass for up and coming artist K'Jon, including the Tom Joyner Morning Show in Dallas, TX. He's also opened for Kenny Lattimore, and traveled all over the U.S. for various church gigs, sitting in for James Grear & Co. and Jamar Esaw (Minneapolis, MN), and other various studio sessions.

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!. One of the young artist's fondest memories was when Diddley took his iconic hat off mid-show and crowned it on his head, as if figuratively passing on the torch and proudly declaring Loomis as the legitimate heir in line. Bo Diddley first appeared on Loomis' debut. And Diddley's last ever recorded song is You Got To Wait, from Loomis' 2007 Blind Pig release 'Ain't Just Temporary.' The co-written track featured both Diddley's unmistakable voice and tremolo guitar for the last time. Other Texas blues legends such as Joe Hughes, Johnny Copeland, Gatemouth Brown and Albert Collins schooled Loomis early on in the finer points of the music, recognizing the youngster's talent and potential. Loomis' first Blind Pig Records release, 'Kickin' It,' released in 2003, presented his innovative approach to an audience hungry for something new in roots music. Said Blueswax, Loomis really gets it, and he is only in his twenties! Don't just dust off those old hackneyed Blues, create your own style of funkified soulful music. Southland Blues raved, 'Kickin' It' is one of the best CDs of the year. This kid's got most all of it and then some. More than worth a listen. And the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel noted, Loomis displays a polished vocal, guitar and songwriting knack that could win him the sort of crossover audience that Robert Cray and B.B. King enjoy.
