Hamilton Loomis @ Swallow Hill (Tufts Theater)

Swallow Hill / Tuft Theater, 71 E. Yale Avenue, Denver, CO 80210

HAMILTON LOOMIS SAT · DECEMBER 14, 2019 Doors: 7 PM / Show: 8 PM Swallow Hill Music - Tuft Theatre $15.00 - $17.00 Doors at 7:00pm, Show at 8:00pm. All sales are final. Born and raised in Galveston, Texas, Loomis is the son of musician parents who listened to blues, rock and soul. Music ran in his veins and, with instruments readily available around the house, he picked up drums, piano, guitar and harmonica, honing his multi-instrumental talent in addition to performing regularly as part of his family’s doo-wop group.

A protégé of Bo Diddley, Loomis met the icon backstage at the age of 16 at Houston’s famed venue Rockefeller’s. Before the night was over, Loomis was onstage playing guitar with the legend. Diddley quickly became friend, mentor, collaborator and supporter, appearing on two of Loomis’ albums and presenting a cherished red guitar that he still plays.

​​​Hamilton Loomis does indeed go back to basics on his new album "BASICS", which is his most personal and emotional effort to date. Gone are the double entendres for which Loomis is known; this time, his lyrics are direct, personal, and often autobiographical.

Loomis and crew shine on stage proving his music is best experienced in person, where one can see and hear its intended splendor. Described by Blues Blast Magazine as “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 on the apron of the stage the next minute.” Loomis’ energetic, get-in-with–the-crowd antics are infectious. The swaying and clapping are just as he envisioned.
