Blues gig in Liverpool
at The Harbourside Club, Liverpool Marina
Thursday 1st May 2008 (doors: 8pm, show starts at 8.45pm)
Singer/guitarist Hamilton Loomis is one of the young artistes at the forefront of bringing the blues into the 21st century. Born and raised in Galveston, Texas, he honed his multi-instrumental, musical skills at a very early age, learning to play drums, piano, guitar bass and harmonica by his early teens. At the age of sixteen, he played alongside Bo Diddley, who has since become his friend and mentor. By the age of eighteen, he had played before thousands at the Delta Blues Festival. Hamilton has also been greatly influenced by Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Stevie Wonder and Prince, which accounts for the funky edge to his musical style.
Hamilton will be backed on his UK tour by his excellent band, which comprises Jamie Little on drums, Colin Peters on bass and Stratton Doyle on saxophone. His brilliant, energetic performances have earned him a large fan base in this country and there is already a substantial request for tickets for the Harbourside gig. Early booking is therefore strongly recommended.
Liverpool Marina is situated at Coburg Wharf, Sefton Street, Liverpool L3 4BP.
Tickets for the concert (£10 each) are obtainable from John Welsh on 0151 428 2855 or email@example.com.
