Hamilton Loomis at Playhouse Boise

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. An apt description, as Loomis is one of the young 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, Loomis bridges the gap between generations of music-lovers both in the U.S. and around the world, having finished tours in both Europe and the United Kingdom. Hamilton’s extraordinary play on the harmonica and guitar along with his emotion-filled blues vocals are complimented by his highly talented keys/sax musician and a driving bass and drums rhythm section. His mentor, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend, Bo Diddley would be proud! Hamilton’s last two shows in Boise have sold out, and for good reason. He is a great musician, performer and entertainer. This will be a show to remember…

Our latest Blues In The Schools (BITS) Program:

Our latest Blues In The Schools (BITS) Program: The students were instructed to listen to “Before You Accuse Me” by Eric Clapton and then write their own words to that song. We spent the five classes talking a little about Blues but mostly playing and singing the students compositions to them and talking in general about 12-bar blues songwriting.  During the session of this photo. Jesse the school’s choir teacher sat in on acoustic guitar and their teacher Krista played bass.  Fun for the kids, great lyrics from the kids, and fun for volunteer BBS players!  Thanks to BBS volunteers today: Ken Harris, Joe Ryan, Becky Blake, Carmel Crock and Bob Kohnke for presenting the blues to five, 7th grade reading classes.
