Blend together Lenny Kravitz’s hybrid of classic rock and soul, the bluesy swagger of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the sweltering funk of Prince and the result is singer/songwriter Hamilton Loomis. An award winning Texas guitarist, singer and harp player, Loomis was mentored by Bo Diddley and delivers a trademark mélange of funk, blues, and rock, riffing with the bold self-confidence of his heroes.

“A non-stop turbo of power, one minute moving from side to side of the stage, and then taking on his horn player in a head-cutting contest the next minute” (Blues Blast).

He is joined by Grammy Award winning saxophonist Fabian Hernandez, Roger Inniss (bass) and Armando Aussenac (drums).
