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…
