"Innovate, don't imitate." Hamilton Loomis took his mentor, Bo Diddley's advice. It speaks volumes when the likes of Diddley, Johnny "Clyde" Copeland, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, and Albert Collins take you under their wings. The twenty-something Texas sensation isn't just another cat-in-a-hat with a Strat. He has crafted his blues roots into a funk-a-fied recipe all his own. A multi-instrumentalist, Hamilton practically grew up in the spotlight. He began on drums and piano at age five, guitar at age six, then conquered the harmonica. Gigging non-stop since age fourteen, he formed a family doo-wop group with his musician parents. By seventeen, he had played the world-famous Delta Blues Festival for an audience of 40,000. Enjoy funky rhythms, booming horns, powerful yet refined harmonica and Loomis' soulful vocals coupled with his stellar guitar work. Loomis is at the forefront of bringing blues based American music into the 21st century and redefining it for a contemporary audience.

Well, caught up with Hamilton Loomis at Guisborough RnB Club's festival on Sunday night and they guys were in great form, as if that was in doubt, despite a rapid stage change-over that almost overlooked the harp stand. This time round, he's brought his American band over, kent on bass… (cont'd) Mike from Shildon
