Re: Hamilton Loomis

We saw Hamilton again this past Sunday (June 3) at Famous Dave's in MPLS. No cover charge and early show (8:00 start time) so we were home just after midnight - can't beat that! Hamilton is one of those guys I will aways include on my under-appreciated artist list. Picked up his latest DVD, "Live At The Hub", filmed at the club in Cedar Falls, IA within the last year or so. It's an excellent DVD, highly recommended! Here's a link to the trailer:

Re: Hamilton Loomis

Thought you'd enjoy the DVD, Lee.

Think he's heading back over to the UK in November. Just hope dates are announced soon as my diary is starting to get full.

Hoped to see you there Walter.
Very curious to see the Belgium bands: El Fish and Lightnin' Guy. Have you seen them before?

At the latest I hope to see you at the Gompelhof at Sunday Blues Day on 25 November. What a bunch of good bands! Halleluja! Won't let that out. Probably I have to show up there before: Mike Zito, Tjorborn Risager, Wolf Mail, Nimmo Brothers ... Whished there were venue like the Gompelhof around my corner. Hope that they will book Mason Rack Band when they will tour Europe next year, gave Jos a CD when I was there last time to watch Ian Siegal.

All the best and see you, Eva

Re: Hamilton Loomis

Hi Eva,

Re: Hamilton Loomis

Here's a little "extra" Ham-bone is throwing into the UK tour:-

Hamilton has the opportunity to teach some "up-close-and-personal" music workshops/clinics before his May 2013 UK tour...would you rather see Hamilton teach guitar or harmonica?  here's the deal:

-- a guitar workshop would be mainly for musicians with a bit of experience. Hamilton would share his knowledge passed down from the great Blues masters he learned from, while also demonstrating his simple, no-nonsense approach to chording, soloing, and more advanced guitar techniques.  Cost would be only £30 for a 3-hour clinic.

-- a harmonica workshop would be open to ALL, even non-musicians, with NO MUSICAL EXPERIENCE needed.  Basics of "Blues Harp" are easy to learn, and Hamilton would get you playing in the first 10 minutes.  It can be great for families to learn together, and would include the harmonica as well.  Cost would also be only £30 for a 3-hour clinic.

We want to know what you think!  Please respond to this email if you'd like to see Hamilton in your area, and which clinic you'd like to see (guitar or harmonica). Potential clinic dates would be May 10 - 13. The May 2013 UK tour (with Hamilton's full band) is listed here at www.hamiltonloomis.com/schedule.htm

Thanks for your feedback, and we look forward to seeing all of you this May in the UK!

Sounds like a good deal....

Re: Hamilton Loomis

My copy of Ham-bone's new album, Give It Back came yesterday; some crackin' Texas Blues/Rock Funk. Didn't realise it had been so long (Ain't Just Temporary back in '07) since he's released any studio work, but it's more than well worth the wait.

Look out for the European dates November/December.

Re: Hamilton Loomis

Ham-bone's Cardiff date, scheduled Dec 5th @ Bogiez has been postponed due to venue closure (as VATA found out). They're trying to reschedule and relocate dates, but refunds are available.


Also effects upcoming New Generation Blues Tour and Matt Schofield later this month.

Re: Hamilton Loomis

Yeah good to see him play up here but at £18 a ticket, not sure it will be a success, attendance wise.

Re: Hamilton Loomis

Playing Edinburgh tonight! First time in the city and first time I've seen him!
